Heavy-overcast and chilly here this Friday morning along California’s northern coast, starting off the last weekend of 2012 — a year quickly, darkly.
And don’t expect things to get better in three days — only worse.
Faithful wordsÂ via Mr. George Carlin: So the next time some asshole says to you, “I have a right to my opinion,” you say, “Oh yeah? Well, I have a right to my opinion, and my opinion is that you have no right to your opinion.” Then shoot the fuck and walk away!

Politics is killing the US — the standard of life in this country is belittled by the incompetent assholes supposedly elected to represent the people, but instead don’t give a shit about anything outside a way-small circle of influences from the NRA to the Koch brothers.
As the new year approaches, the horror of the future has already come, and despite all the shit awaiting, expect no help, no cavalry charging to the rescue as just about everything will slowly unravel.
We are the problem: History has its own arcs and particular moments in history have their own spirits of the time. This moment for us is the sum of the unintended consequences of countless bad choices we’ve made for many decades against the backdrop of enormous material riches.
The central-core problem involved with all our problemsÂ as 2013 comes a-calling outshines all others — the GOP.
Beyond the crippling effect of climate change denial, the stalled ‘fiscal cliff’ fiasco — they themselves have been “poisoning the well” — hyper-blocking a bill that would provide job training for military veterans, and in blocking a new Farm Bill in September, these self-centered assholes who don’t ‘…care a hoot about the opinions of most Americans…’ could force milk to double in price.
And even with aging, crippled Bob Dole in attendance, the GOP shot down a UN bill to aid the handicap — these assholes won’t let wheelchairs pass.
Think Progress has just a short list of dumb-ass, bat-shit crazy things Republicans have done over the course of 2012 and that’s only surface-floating shit.
A comment to the above post says it all: Their next piece of legislation will outlaw walking upright.
So Happy New Year, and that’s just my opinion — if you disagree, I’ve got a Glock, an AR-15, an AK-47, a grenade launcher and two Apache attack helicopters, if you want start some shit.
