Calgary Stampede – Chicago 4th July

Calgary Stampede – Chicago 4th July

The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The ten-day event, which bills itself as “The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth”,[3] attracts over one million visitors per year and features one of the world’s largest rodeos, a parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon racing and First Nations exhibitions.

The event’s roots are traced to 1886 when the Calgary and District Agricultural Society held its first fair. In 1912, American promoter Guy Weadick organized his first rodeo and festival, known as the Stampede. He returned to Calgary in 1919 to organize the Victory Stampede in honour of soldiers returning from World War I. Weadick’s festival became an annual event in 1923 when it merged with the Calgary Industrial Exhibition to create the Calgary Exhibition and Stampede.


Violence in Chicago continued over the Fourth of July weekend with at least 11 people shot in roughly four hours Sunday afternoon, bringing the total number of people shot since the holiday weekend began to 67.
At least 11 people were killed over the long weekend.

Gun control no Border control

“We need more gun control and background checks.”

“We need more money and leeway for our mental health system to catch these people in advance.”

“We should shame and regulate the entertainment industry and video game producers who showcase and glamorize violence in their products.”

These all raise worthy points—some more worthy than others. But we could do all the above—pass more gun control laws, increase the power of the mental health system, ban violence in Hollywood—and bad things still will happen.

I don’t need to tell you the sovereignty of the United States of America is under attack from the flood of illegal immigrants now in progress.

However, It appears our current federal government thinks it’s a good idea. Reports first surfaced last week that scores of illegal immigrants in Texas were being flown, bused and then abandoned out-of-state into Arizona and elsewhere.

Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is not best pleased, saying in a statement, “This is a crisis of the federal government’s creation, and the fact that the border remains unsecure – now apparently intentionally – while this operation continues full-steam ahead is deplorable.”

More than 150,000 immigrants have been apprehended along the south Texas border – up 57% from the previous year. In addition, there has been an unprecedented surge of children making the more than 1,000-mile journey from Central America, ostensibly to escape violence in their home countries – but is it because many know the back door is wide open?
