Cali Bar Shooting Survivor Was at Vegas Concert Massacre

And that’s not where the similarities end.

America, for all of its majestic expanse, can be an extremely cozy nation in which to make a life.

We have our major hubs of culture, whose attitudes seem to emanate outward like the cultural fallout of some well executed media atomic weapon.  The closer to Manhattan you get, the more terse and perturbed one seems to be.  As we move west, toward the laid back surf bros of California, we see the attitudes softening.  Perhaps the perpetual purple pot cloud over Colorado is one of the best metaphors for the situation.

In any case, we can look around the nation for the signs of these cultural hubs in one another’s attitude and personality, and we can get a fairly good idea about who it is that we’re dealing with.

Call it “profiling” if you want.  I prefer to consider it a study of the cultural spider web.

So when a young man survived the targeting of two separate country music-themed events by armed madmen, we can’t help but ask if there is a pattern?

Brendan Kelly said he is a regular at Borderline Bar and Grill, frequenting the venue two or three times a week. Kelly was there when shots rang out Wednesday night around 11:20 p.m.

By the time the shots stopped, 12 people were dead, including the shooter. A Ventura County sheriff’s sergeant who responded to the shooting died later at a hospital after being shot multiple times.

But here’s where it gets strange.

“It’s too close to home,” Kelly said. “Borderline was our safe space after, for lack of a better term, it was our our home for the probably 30 or 45 of us who are all from the greater Ventura County area who were in Vegas. That was our place where we went to the following week, three nights in a row just so we could be with each other.”

In the minutes after his narrow escape, Kelly made the call to his family members that he hoped he would never again have to make after Las Vegas. He could still hear gunshots in the background.

The Borderline Bar was hosting a country music themed night when the gunfire began.

The concert that Kelly survived in Las Vegas was that of Jason Aldean – one of the nation’s most iconic country singers.

White House Announces Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

This could be a big boon for a number of American industries as well.

Regardless of what you think of Joe Biden touting this latest infrastructure deal as a “win”, it sure is nice to see that our government isn’t completely and utterly broken in the 21st century. It took months of bickering and infighting, and more than a few moments of political pettiness, but it appears as though we may just have an infrastructure deal after all. President Biden announced on Thursday that the White House and a group of bipartisan senators had reached a deal on a $579 billion infrastructure plan. “It’s been a very long time since the last time our country was able to strike a major bipartisan deal on American infrastructure,” Biden said at the White House. Biden said he and congressional Democrats had to concede some on what’s known as “human infrastructure,” such as investments for childcare and spending on climate change. Democrats will instead look to pass additional spending in a separate bill through a Senate budgetary process called reconciliation, which requires only a simple majority to pass legislation. And, despite no one having seen the bill yet, Biden is confident that Congress will send it to his desk to sign in the coming days. The radical left will likely be the most disappointed in the bill, after having previously suggested a goal of a $10 trillion investment in climate change initiatives.

Miami Building Collapsed After Years of Sinking into the Earth

Scientists has determined the issue years ago.

Just north of Miami, in the nearby town of Surfside, there is a massive rescue effort underway as nearly 100 people remain unaccounted for in the wake of a residential high-rise’s collapse. That number was nearly double the early estimate, having risen dramatically on Thursday afternoon as more information became available to those leading the effort. The late-night collapse, which was captured on video by a nearby surveillance camera, appeared to be a sudden, freak accident, but new information seems to indicate that there might be more to this story. A Florida high rise that collapsed early Thursday was determined to be unstable a year ago, according to a researcher at Florida International University. The building, which was constructed in 1981, has been sinking at an alarming rate since the 1990s, according to a 2020 study conducted by Shimon Wdowinski, a professor in the Department of Earth and Environment. When Wdowinski saw the news that the Champlain Towers South condominium in Surfside had collapsed, he instantly remembered it from the study, he said. “I looked at it this morning and said, ‘Oh my god.’ We did detect that,” he said. But not everyone agreed with the assessment. Wdowinski said his research is not meant to suggest certainty about what caused the collapse. The building was sinking at a rate of about 2 millimeters a year in the 1990s, and could have slowed or accelerated in the time since, he said. In his experience, even the level of sinking observed in the 1990s typically results in impacts to buildings and their structures, Wdowinski said. He believes that very well could have been the case for the Champlain building in the 1990s, based on his findings. “It was a byproduct of analyzing the data. We saw this building had some kind of unusual…
