Clear this early Friday along California’s northern coast, though, rain is forecast for next week and winter’s coming whether we like it or not.
The US east coast has to feel a bit in the gun-sights of apprehension as Hurricane Sandy, already called a hybrid whopper and â€œFrankenstorm,” could strike hard early next week — climate change contribution is less wind, but a enormous shitload of water.
Beyond weather talk — which can get political if one is in the company of a climate-change denier, or a Republican, the news this morning is about the same as yesterday’s, but with a different date.
Not only is the entire planet in a fever of disaster, but it’s almost become mundane to point out the failing life cycles of our delusions as we flex one of the most-powerful machines in history resting in our little hands.
So tuned in, but so-without a clue.

The Washington Post endorsed President Obama yesterday in a lengthy editorial, saying, in part: In a second term, working with an opposition that we hope would be chastened by the failure of its scorched-earth campaign against him, he is far more likely than his opponent to succeed.
No one can succeed, or even maintain, and herein lies the rub.
This particular presidential election, beyond carrying one of the highest lying shit-slinging rates in political history,Â has now become the most money-flooded: The 2012 presidential campaign passed the $2 billion mark in fundraising Thursday, fueled by an outpouring of cash from both ordinary citizens and the wealthiest Americans hoping to influence the selection of the country’s next leader.
And with a lot of this cash comes racist assholes.
From the Washington Post yesterday: The 2012 election is shaping up to be more polarized along racial lines than any presidential contest since 1988, with President Obama experiencing a steep drop in support among white voters from four years ago.
So, just in time — fat-mouth, f*ck-head John Sununu’sÂ blubber on Colin Powell’s endoresement of President Obama is racially motivated:
You have to wonder whether thatâ€™s an endorsement based on issues or that heâ€™s got a slightly different reason for President Obama.
Well, I think that when you have somebody of your own race that youâ€™re proud of being President of the United States â€” I applaud Colin for standing with him.
Only racist, low-information and delusional pricks does any wondering of that sort, asshole!
And this YouTube video from September popped up on my InterWeb radar this morning, in this case, one does wonder why it’s been out of sight for so long — poverty-hating prick Paul Ryan and his crazed-looking wife, Janna, are made uncomfortable during a Labor Day parade.
A young man wants some answers, and Ryan just offers candy — see the sad freak-out here.
Jenna appears a female prick — if such a thing, however, you can bet there’s one in every GOP lap dance.
As Tina Fey unloads on male pricks: â€œI wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues,â€ Fey said. â€œBut it seems like we canâ€™t right now. And if I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a two-dollar haircut explain to me what rape is, Iâ€™m gonna lose my mind.â€
Just keep in mind that at least we haven’t come to this, yet.
North Korea’s Kim Jong-un has aÂ tough no-laughing policy: On the orders of Kim Jong-un to leave “no trace of him behind, down to his hair,” according to South Korean media, Kim Chol was forced to stand on a spot that had been zeroed in for a mortar round and “obliterated.”
Weekend time has been moved to Monday, however.
