We got 8″ of snow last night after a beautiful day yesterday of 40-50F degree weather – a freaking heat wave relatively speaking.  And now the mercury is crashing, heading for -5F tonight.

I’ve been listening to people whinge and bellyache about this winter for months now.  Months.

And I honestly was able to tell them that I have not minded it.  I haven’t.  The drives haven’t been as dangerous as some years because it was so freaking cold, not a slushy 28 degree snow on warm soil.

Today… today was different.  Damn white sh*t.  Everywhere.

Coworker Laconic Pup sent this.  Awesome.  It is circling the web as he says, but it is still awesome.

Obama is right.  Congress doesn’t have the authority to vote something like this over the president because it does violate the whole checks and balances idea rather thoroughly.

President Obama is threatening to veto a law that would allow Congress to sue him in federal courts for arbitrarily changing or refusing to enforce federal laws because it “violates the separation of powers” by encroaching on his presidential authority.

[Too bad he's so loose with the limits to his auth-or-i-TAY... - LK]

“[T]he power the bill purports to assign to Congress to sue the President over whether he has properly discharged his constitutional obligation to take care that the laws be faithfully executed exceeds constitutional limitations,” the White House Office of Management and Budget said Wednesday in a statement of administration policy. “Congress may not assign such power to itself, nor may it assign to the courts the task of resolving such generalized political disputes.”

However… he hasn’t the authority to disregard his duties.  All this stuff was already laid out in that 400 year old Constitution Jackson-Lee suddenly professes to believe in.  It is a nation of rules and laws that was set up to take power out of individual men’s and group’s hands.  They can change it via a 2/3 vote Amendment though.  Let’s do that.

Congress AND the idiot in the White House have both granted themselves far too much power not expressly given them.

Time to get rid of them all, my Angry Mob Voter friends.

I had no idea that Vegans were so into eating their used condoms. Plus that hardly seems Vegan at that point, but if they want to eat certified Vegan used condoms rather than synthetics, more power to ‘em, I guess.

Leave it to Vegans.

Those French.

I was disgusted at this frenchman’s choice of white beans when a sensible portion of haricot verts with a shallot and almond butter makes more sense.

But white beans with Frenchman is just pedestrian and frankly, crude.

I have seen two beheadings now and multiple executions by other means and I have to say beheading is one of my least favorite choices of how I would want to die personally, but if you run with the crowd that thinks this is cool stuff I am not too worked up if you die that way yourself. Getting beheaded by your own side when they mistake you as the enemy? Priceless.

Obamacare is burdened by low income and higher risk people and requires the healthy and affluent to finance it. It is also dangerously close to tanking because it is not adequately funded. So we need more people to keep the premiums down!

Let’s add millions of illegal immigrants, because they will represent the biggest pool of healthy and wealthy people that will put more into the system than they take out.

Yeah, amnesty is key to making it work. Let’s see… What else? OH YEAH! I am pretty sure gun control, additional NSA funding, and more HomeSec bullets, armor, vehicles, crowd control, and facial recognition systems (drones go w/o saying) are also key to making Obamacare work.

From my BIL…

Speaking of batshit-crazy, let’s segue on over to my home state, shall we?

This is one of the few sane things to occur!

The Glock Block.

Odds are that the ultraliberal, Occupy movement-supporting crowd in Portland, Oregon, which includes its mayor in late 2011, who told the Los Angeles Times that “I support a lot of what the movement stands for, as a political leader” — are already trying to figure out how to stop what they surely see as a dangerous idea which has sprung up about 10 miles to the south: fed-up citizens arming themselves.

Portland is among several localities in the Beaver State which “have banned loaded firearms in all public places.” That’s apparently not the case in an unincorporated area of Clackamas County near the suburb of Milwaukie, where a fed-up woman is forming a “Glock Block” that Portland’s OregonLive.com web site, based on a search on “Glock” returning no relevant results, is ignoring, despite the national attention the group has begun to receive. Portland TV station KOIN has the following story (HT to Zero Hedge):

If THIS isn’t one of the coolest things to post in your neighborhood…

Tolomon and a group of Jennings Lodge neighbors say they’re responding to escalating crime on their block by also making fliers that read “This is a Glock block. We don’t call 911.

ABC Pregnant MalesReally Chicago?

How much does anyone want to bet that this was thought up by some barking fruit-bat from the left wing?  Chicago is just the place to buy into it, though.

Teen pregnancy seems to me to be a pretty serious topic, so is this kind of weird manipulation the way you want to try to reach people?

Note: I will polish this article later but for now, dinner calls.

It is like meteorologists finally decided they needed to be taken more seriously all the time.  They want to matter, to be valid, to be noticed.

They say that it is for our good:

During the upcoming 2012-13 winter season The Weather Channel will name noteworthy winter storms. Our goal is to better communicate the threat and the timing of the significant impacts that accompany these events. The fact is, a storm with a name is easier to follow, which will mean fewer surprises and more preparation.

Funny, I never found a storm so hard to follow that I needed a name put to it.  This sounds like justifying something that has no real justification at hand.

So a bunch of meteorologists got together and collectively decided that they would name every freaking storm, not just the big tropical ones.  Most tornadoes don’t even really get names, not like Hurricane Carol, Hurricane Katrina, or Hurricane Pasquale.  Tornadoes seem to mainly be named after the town that they most completely wiped off a map.

So, much like a teen announcing suddenly that she no longer wants to be called Marcia, now she is Annette, or Hubert suddenly wants to be called Throck Morton III, or any number of teens “quietly” come out with their disinterested angst and claim to be vegetarians and dress in black and brood a lot, now meteorologists need to name their snowstorms.

I find this to be sad.  As sad as the guy that breaks into a lingerie store and gets caught on tape molesting himself with “devices”.

I am sure this is going to put a little lead in the pencils of meteorologists everywhere, this newfound power to compete for naming rights of the latest atmospheric disturbance, but there’s going to be more excitement in the general population of a prison over the guy mentioned above than there is about storm naming.

So cut it out TWC and any other outfits that think this is a cool trend, because it is… sad.

I listen to NPR because I want to know what the commies are up to.  Here’s the link to last Friday’s transcript of The Week in Politics, and here is the snippet that just steams my clams.

I think it’s an utterly artificial crisis. It’s really the ghost of the Tea Party haunting Washington because the whole sequester comes out of an effort to end the other utterly unnecessary crisis back in 2011 over the debt ceiling. And so they came up with a package they thought would be so bad that no one would buy it and they would come to a reasonable deal.

President Obama has come up with, I think, a very reasonable deal. Indeed, I think my friend David should be embracing the president because he’s doing what David has spent two years telling us we should do: a balance of tax – money raised through tax reform and some reasonable cuts, including by the way, cuts in Medicare spending.

I think the Republicans have an interest in this crisis going on as long as possible. They kind of like to run out the clock because the more time we spend on phony budget crises, the less time we spend on, oh, getting people back to work, investing in the future, easing inequality, promoting mobility.

So they just want to put more and more time between us and the last election, which Obama won. And right now, it’s looking like the public will blame the Republicans more than Obama, but Obama is stuck in a situation where he is losing time to do some of the things he’d like to do.

- E.J. Dionne of The Washington Post

Like in the kid’s Highlights magazine some of us grew up with way back when… how many things could you spot wrong in that picture?

David Brooks of the NYT:

BROOKS: You know, I do think that they gave a lot on tax increases and got zippo in response. And so I do think the next time around, we should do something that’s much more on the spending side. The president has done a little spending, what they call chain CPI in Social Security, to me not enough, and they’re still relying too much on tax increases by closing loopholes, which would undermine tax reform in the long run.

So I do think the Republicans have a point on that. But they’re just in a pretty weak position right now.

BLOCK: E.J.?

DIONNE: I don’t think they have a point at all. I mean, that was 642 billion in revenues. We’ve already done well over 2 trillion in cuts. Obama agreed to a lot of cuts in 2011, and he’s not asking nearly as much in tax increases as either Simpson-Bowles did or he once did. He’d settle for 400 or $500 billion in additional taxes.

You’d still have an enormous ratio in favor of cuts over tax increases if you agreed to Obama’s deal. And so, I think there’s something very disingenuous to say, well, we’ll pass this one – taxes one time only. Boehner himself said he’d be for more tax increases than he’s voted for.

So, you see, I actually risk my life in listening to NPR because I’m about a gnat’s ass away from having a stroke at any given moment.

I seem to be taking some heat over at doubleplusundead – above and beyond this life-crippling boycott levied against me.

Apparently two minion lemurs (short tailed, unkempt) were freed from their enforced incarceration by a strange individual with bolt cutters.  Since these were minion lemurs and not of higher breeding – uneducated, unwashed, undisciplined – they followed their baser natures and got involved with incidents involving the law.

One of them (Leonard “Ratface” Lemur) was in a tree when officers arrived on the scene and came quietly.  The other accosted a 2 year old, leaving her face scratched.  Leo Langton Lemur will not be officially punished with jail time but may have an unfortunate accident sometime in the future involving a wood chipper or a cement truck.

Point to be made is that I have no control over these minions – only Maurice held the real power associated with my figurehead and he is vacationing in St. Petersberg.  These new minions do not even pay dues to enhance their legal defense fund.   I wash my hands of them and dismiss them with a double flick of the tail.

Soy Sauce.

Ok, I was thinking… When was the last time any of us men said to the wife “Woman, I am going to a movie with the guys” and then went to see “John Dies at the End”?

It is due out on the 24/25th last time I heard.  Rumor is that Mitchell has seen it and now is a follower of Korrok
Read the book in early 2012 and I can say it is like the strange offspring of a ménage between Phantasm, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, and Apocalypse Now if AN had been more than simply a dark comedy.
The story centers around a guy who investigates the paranormal after he has been exposed to Soy Sauce, a really bad soy-sauce-like hallucinogenic.  Sort of.  Or maybe it is part love story where one partner is wired a bit funny and has a prosthetic limb.  Or a story about monsters made of deli meats.
Oh just go look it up. Fair warning – – – John dies at the end, just like it says.  It is probably also extremely violent, gross, and a chunk of your life you’ll never get back again.
The preview might not be particularly good for kids.
It’s got a 67% on Rotten Tomatoes which isn’t too bad.  Considering that it is firmly in “Bubba-Ho-Tep” cult movie territory it’s really quite good.  I’m trying to get a bunch of friends to ditch their wives to go see it.
Mitchell must write a review on it.

What’s good?

Lou Reed has been running through my brain, probably because I’m playing his music at the moment.  Lots of people can’t stand the guy and that’s understandable I guess.  Anyway, “What’s Good?”:

Life’s like a mayonnaise soda
And life’s like space without room
And life’s like bacon and ice cream
That’s what life’s like without you

- Lou Reed

And this is just a stream-of-consciousness stream of bullshit tonight because, well, because.

What’s wrong with bacon and ice cream, anyway?

From Cracked.com comes a list of 20 Costumes that Will Earn You a Halloween Beating.  And they should.  Every last one of them.  If you dress up as one of these and end up with stitches and splints for lots of soft-body parts let me know.

What’s Good?  Ends up like so:

What’s good ?
Life’s good -
But not fair at all

I think there’s a grain of truth there.

No, I’m not depressed or anything.  I’m actually taking the night off and have time to think about all the stuff I usually ignore and had some music on.  This was on the playlist is all.

Scan the following graphic.  Note the number of countries that prefer Obama over Romney and the percentages.

What is totally and completely baffling me is how close the Presidential race is.

Why is that?

Can people not look objectively at this?  The rest of the world doesn’t really give a rat’s hiney about who the best leader is for the US.  What the rest of the world cares about is “What is in it for us?”   Think about that.  They all prefer Obama because the idea is that with a weak leader in the US, at least on paper, the rest of the world has a bigger slice of the pie (and if you don’t believe that, ask yourself why Europe formed the EU).  In practice they would have been hosed either way but I think it would have been worse for them if they didn’t have Obama shoveling dirt on our own heads.

So, World, how is it working out so far?  Could be worse, you say?  Good thing the world doesn’t vote for our President.

And nine out of ten dictators hate the US unless it is giving them money.  Of those that are getting money from the US, nine out of ten would ditch the US in a heartbeat if they could because they secretly loathe the US anyway.
