"The USA has, by far, the highest per capita gun ownership in the world. Progressives will tell you that this is what makes America the Murder Capitol of Planet Earth. But we're not, and in this devastatingly effective Firewall, Bill Whittle shows why the center of Gun Nut Nation is in fact one of the safest places in the world."
"When Nick Ramsey became Racine’s poet laureate, part of his duties included putting together a book titled Transformation: Art & Poetry. The project featured 12 poets and artists, and the proceeds from the book will go towards the Racine Arts Council. "The book features 24 poems and 24 pieces of artwork, including metal
sculptures, blown glass, jewelry, photography, paintings, mixed media
and print work. "Robert Osborne and his wife Vera Scekic funded the project through the Osborne-Scekic Family Foundation because they feel supporting the arts creates a more vibrant community. "'My wife is an artist here, and we love seeing people in the arts
succeed,' Osborne said. 'We believe that this is a potential economic
driver for the city and the region.' "If you are interested interested in buying the book, it’s on sale for
$40 at the Racine Arts Council, 316 6th St. A book release party is
set from 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 16 at the Racine Arts Council."
"Safe Ride will be up and running all New Year’s Eve. Be smart… Don’t
drink and drive…There is no reason at all why someone would have to
drive under the influence when so many options are available including
this. How many thousands of $$$ is an OWI these days? We don’t think
anyone wants to end up on Racine Uncovered because they were criminally
charged for OWI.. Worse yet, remember you could hurt yourself, hurt
others or kill yourself or someone else. A few hours of having a blast
could ruin your life. Choose wisely. You can ask the bartender and turn
over your keys to them. Safe Ride’s number is 262-884-4248"
"Fans of Amur, a Siberian tiger, and Timur, a feisty goat that's
not seen as prey by the predator, can finally keep close tabs on the
animal buddies 24/7 – thanks to a reality show launched at the Far
Eastern Safari Park.
"The unique 'friendship'
between Amur and Timur first created a buzz late last month, raising
many eyebrows after the lionhearted goat refused to become the
predator's lunch, and even dared to steal the feline’s bed. The goat
showed no fear and the tiger seems to respect that."
Hello, my Eskimos! How are you? Wasn't that snowstorm something? Yes, it was something I can live without, but I have a feeling that winter is just gearing up. We'll be shoveling snow in April. The wind just wouldn't give up on Monday, driving snow and ice into everything. I could feel the minor drafts around our windows. I guess Señor Zanza will have some insulating work on his agenda, whether he knows it or not. It's an old house, but there are still plenty of years left in it. It's just a matter of maintenance. If you take care of your dwelling, it will take care of you.
Who's going to take care of our ailing Green Bay Packers? The Arizona Cardinals made fools out of them this Sunday past. There's only one game left in the regular season to play. This Sunday, January 3 at 7:30 pm, our vaunted Packers will host the Minnesota Vikings. Watch for the sparks to fly during this one.
In the Irregular Football League, we've just finished our regular season
with the Racine Irregulars taking 1st place, The Mighty Bears winning
2nd, and the Half-Astrophysicists coming in 3rd. That puts my Screaming
Psychics in 4th. Boo-hoo. Wait till next year.
Speaking of next year, Happy New Year! Now don't imbibe too much over the long weekend. It just makes you hungover and wondering who you insulted.
Are you making any New Years resolutions? My resolution is to grow younger, though I haven't the faintest idea of how to do it. I'm tired of creaky bones and achy joints. I can take any of a number of Madame Zoltar® products to ease my pain, but they don't last. So then I have to take more and more, like an addict. I want a permanent fix, like Calgon all of the time. I'll take the exuberance of youth over the wisdom of old age any day.
I sincerely hope that next year is an improvement over last. What if everyone fighting wars all over the globe just dropped their weapons and went home? What if mass murderers talked to a psychiatrist before going on a rampage? What if wife beaters and kid beaters and dog beaters sought help before beating someone up? What if, what if. It will take the Lord's help to accomplish any of those things. He has to enter the hearts of the abusers, brawlers, and killers. Unfortunately, that doesn't usually happen until these malcontents are sitting in prison. Still, I hope and pray for peace. You can kill people, but you can't kill prayers.
Thank you, my dears, for reading my blog today. I love visitors and I appreciate the time you take to read my scribblings. Best wishes for the New Year to you all.
"We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who reads Racine
Uncovered. What started out as a tiny blog and grown leaps and bounds

readers per month and the year isn’t even done yet! Here is what we know
in hard cold data. (We never thought in our dreams we would be typing
in millions!) We not only have readers… we have DOERS in this
community. Team Racine Uncovered steps up and help each other and the
community out! Goal for next year ONE MILLION READERS!

Hello, my Christmas Elves! How are you? I read somewhere that the lack of snow cover makes it more difficult to be in the Christmas spirit. Our temperatures have been remarkable. Not much lower than 30 now and often in the 40's, even the 50's. I';m still waiting for the other shoe to drop. January and February have often been bitterly cold in the past. There's no reason to think it won't be so this/next year. If global warming is fin place, maybe January and February won't be quite so wicked. I don't even talk to Mother Nature anymore. In fast, I haven't seen her in months. I heard that they committed her. If anyone deserves it, it's certainly her.
Of course, our delectable Green Bay Packers stuffed it down the throats of the Oakland Raiders last Sunday. Thank you, gentlemen. This Sunday, December 27. our Packers travel to Arizona to take on the Arizona Cardinals at 3:25 PM. I'll be honest: I didn't know that such a team exists. I've been in Arizona. It's hot and dry. I didn't know that Cardinals prefer that climate, especially since I've seen so many over the years in Wisconsin. In any case, whoever they are, may the Green Bay Packers throttle them to within an inch of their putrid lives.
The standings of the Irregular Football League are at the right. We're already into our final week and games. My Screaming Psychics have a chance at 3rd place, as do Mr. Hale-bopp's Half-Astrophysicists. Playing in our version of the Super Bowl are The Mighty Bears and the Racine Irregulars. I'm not taking sides on this one because I love them both. Who will win?
For Christmas this year, Señor Zanza and Junior hare selected a run down house in our neighborhood owned by a "little old lady" who is the sole owner and occupant. She certainly can't do the house repairs herself, and her sole source of income is Social Security. She can't afford to hire others to do the repair work for her. Señor Zanza and Junior have chosen this project in order to demonstrate the meaning of Jesus' preaching. God bless them all.
Personally, I've been giving free readings for an hour or so each day. People are still unsure about our economy and our role in international natters. Those who can afford it, will have a happy holiday for sure. The rest of us can only look on in silence. That doesn't mean we don't have a Merry Christmas. We just have to be more creative, and that's half the fun.
Here's a seasonal treat:
I wish you and your families the most blessed of holidays. Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I love you all, even the stinkers downtown.
May the love of the season mush all over you and yours. If you're driving, drive carefully. Leave plenty of time early. May our children come to grow in the light Christmas. May we learn from the love of the holidays.

"This is a cropped version of a photo William E. Crockett of
Racine allegedly texted to women, including a Racine police officer.
Crockett, 45, was sentenced on Monday, December 21, 2015, to 27 months
behind bars plus 18 months on extended supervision for charges of
stalking and unlawful use of a computer messaging system."
"RACINE — A Racine man, whom more than a dozen women
accused of stalking them, threatening them and sending them sexually
explicit pictures, spoke passionately about wanting his “life back” —
and not wanting to go to jail.
"He’s headed to prison. "William
E. Crockett, 45, of the 2200 block of Mount Pleasant Street, was
sentenced on Monday to 27 months behind bars — nearly the maximum
sentenced allowed. "Prosecutors and investigators said Crockett,
who previously worked at two Racine County prisons and as a mall
security guard, sent threatening texts to women, including a female
Racine police officer and then the female Racine County Sheriff’s Office
detective investigating that allegation. "During his sentencing,
Crockett said he admitted to 'what I did' and was honest with
investigators. But he said he didn’t want to go to jail. ''I never
stalked anybody. It was a back-and-forth thing. I might have gotten
carried away,' said Crockett. 'I just want my life back.' "Racine
County Circuit Judge Michael Piontek also sentenced Crockett to 18
months on extended supervision, calling him 'a danger.'" Read more: http://journaltimes.com/news/local/racine-man-nets-near-max-for-stalking-threatening-women-cops/article_2c9a955c-c161-5f28-b936-1a5368148f51.html
He wants his friggin' "life back" and "isn't suited to jail". What about all those women he's sent the full version of the above photo? This ia a Class A Asshole. He takes no personal responsibility for any of this mess. Send the full version of the pjoto to whatever prison he lands in.

"A 3-year-old North Dakota boy who disappeared for nearly seven hours was
later found under the protective cover of the family's pet dog,
authorities said. "Carson Urness disappeared from his family's 10-plus acre property in
Cooperstown, North Dakota, around 7:30 p.m. Monday after being let out
to play while his mom worked inside the home, the boy's father told ABC
News. "'She checked on him again at 7:30 and he was gone,' Carson's father,
Brock Urness, said of his wife, Courtney, who was inside taking care of
the couple's 11-month-old daughter while Carson played. "'She looked around frantically for about 30 minutes and then called me,'
Urness said. 'And I said, 'Well, where's Cooper?' and she said, 'Cooper
is not here either.' "Cooper is the family's dog - a German Shepherd, Labrador and Golden
Retriever 'mutt,' as Urness calls him - that the family adopted three
years ago after he was left on the side of the road near a relative's
home. "The Urnesses searched for Carson until 8:30 p.m. when they called 911.
Less than 30 minutes later, the local police and fire departments had
launched an aerial and ground search for Carson, aided by 200 neighbors,
family and friends from Cooperstown, population about 800. "'They had an airplane here searching for him and 60 four-wheelers and
people looking on foot and didn't find anything,' Urness said. "Just before officials planned to call off the search for the night,
around 2:30 a.m., officials decided to send out one last four-wheeler
for a final sweep of the property. "'That four-wheeler found him about a mile away from our house, in the
middle of one of our fields by a pasture,' Urness said. 'Carson was in
tall grass but when they shone lights down to sweep it, the dog stuck
its head out.' "Carson was found safely underneath Cooper, who was laying on the boy,
presumably to protect him from the 40-degree temperatures that night."

Well I am finally going to post some Christmas Decorations sorry that it has taken me so long to do this for everyone to enjoy but had to wait for our computer to come back and we still has some little problems that I had to figure out. Now we are up and running so I am going to post some pictures for everyone to enjoy.
I am going to start with Candy Cane Lane and when you go there you will see people standing out there taking donations for the M.A.C.C. Fund. The M.A.C.C. Fund is for Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. While I was in line to get in I seen cars drive right past the people and I think that is really sad. Last year and this year I let the people know I am taking the pictures to post on here and I hand them one of our cards so they know we are here trying to help them out.
Here are some of the pictures we had taken-
I hope everyone enjoys the pictures and there are more to come.
