I was all psyched about getting up in the air and videotaping the expected back ups along I-75 and US 2 with the closure of the Mighty Mac today. I Had the video camera ready, had the glass on the cameras, and then nothing.
Storms rolled through the region, and the flight plans changed from getting to the trouble spots on time, to about 2 hours late. We hit the bridge about 40 minutes after it had already opened. No cool video of 50 miles of traffic back-ups, and no pictures of the throngs of people breaking in a new set of sneakers.
Chalk it up to how things can go sometimes.
So until the next over-hyped thing we promote here, enjoy an aerial picture of the bridge as it rests underneath a rain cloud.
So if anyone wants to see why the republican party is having a hard time gaining any traction, and wants to see why my predictions of it self-destructing like an Acme dynamite kit are now being repeated by others, look no further than below the fold.
If ever you were going to do the bridge walk, this might be the year to do it. Because of expected traffic backups and associated complications, it is doubtful that there will be a walk after this year’s soon-to-be catastrophe.
Should it be any surprise that as leadership fully embraces their faces with their ass-cheeks, that the terrorists have our number? We pointed out a few months ago that The Islamists continue with their version of winning.
The fun loving boys and girls of Antifa met in cities across the nation on August 19th to plan a new, national round of antidemocratic riots and intimidation which will kick off on November 4th. They are planning an American Cultural Revolution, no less. The only omission from the full Chinese experience will be Mao Zhedong, who has been shoveling thunder out of hell since 1976.
The enthusiastic and fawning media which Antifa received after Charlottesville and Boston seems to have emboldened them. Five cities – New York, Chicago, Austin, San Francisco, and Los Angeles are expected to be ground zero for this new wave of highly disruptive ‘protests’ that should continue until the snow flies. This time around they won’t even need the pretext of ‘Nazis’ or ‘White Supremacists’, nor politically incorrect historical monuments. Anyone questioning these rioters will be immediately targeted as Nazis or Klansmen, including police. Anything offensive to the revolution will be destroyed.
This weekend instead of doing something (anything) fun, entertaining and constructive over the weekend (we had an Air Show at Selfridge celebrating its 100th Anniversary, the Armada Fair, the Woodward Cruise and many others events here in Southeastern Michigan), a group of adolescent protestors with obviously way too much free time on their hands decided to go after their 15-minutes of fame and emulate their fellow Antifa comrades in Downtown Detroit.
And who did this bunch of rabble-rousers target its ire at?
The 2017 solar eclipse will cover 70% – 85% of the sun across Michigan on Monday, 21 August. Long range weather forecasts suggest some cloud cover in the 2:00 PM – 2:40 PM (EDT) peak Michigan viewing time, but not total cloud cover or any rain. Peak coverage of the sun by the moon will occur from 2:10 PM – 2:20 PM (EDT) in the Upper Peninsula and 2:20 PM – 2:30 PM (EDT) in the Lower Peninsula. The moon will cover some portion of the sun from about 12:30 PM – 4:00 PM (EDT) across Michigan.
