Just too much useless news to report and I have better things to do.
The storm of the year/ decade/ century is over and the arduous task of shoveling out begins. They sure hyped that one. So what happens when the next bigger storm hits? They'll have to make up new adjectives to grace our language. Fear always sells you know. And if that doesn't work it's sex or food are always good standbys but that's a bit difficult to tie into a weather map.
Solar flares are headed this way. Nothing to really worry about here folks or so they say unless you want to watch some pretty night time lights in the sky. Around here that would be about as likely as seeing a polar bear and a black bear on the same day. This is western Washington in the winter for cripes sake. And it's always wise to take what "they" say with a grain of salt too. "They" wouldn't lie to us now would "they"?
So now that we're just about back to cute puppies and cuddly kittens the real stories are being covered up like a red headed step child. Banks are back to their old tricks only now they'd like to suck the remaining life blood from your home equity and retirement before your passing. Syria continues to be a killing field with those that can get out are headed for the exits. Folks in Egypt are none too happy about the changes in that country and it looks like Morsi is wanting to take lessons from Iran. Greece is at near civil war while the austerity measures in the UK are about to stir up trouble there. And in the U.S. we wait for a budget not knowing if our leaders will follow the same path. But let's face it this country has been gutted from the inside out when greed took hold and outsourcing was the way to go.
So let us all enjoy our distractions while we can things could be worse but I don't know how. Hopefully those at the top will begin to realize that if they keep going they way they are those in the middle and bottom won't be around. But the pesky Peonage is hard to get rid of. Got to keep somebody around to rake the garden and clean the toilets.
