Wet today with gusty winds. We got all our errands done yesterday before the rain and winds came on. Today we will hibernate and probably for the next several days as well. Thankfully, though we do have snow predicted for later in the week it won't be anything like the blizzard in Colorado.

I said in my last post that we had twisted the definition of "terrorist" to cover a disparate multitude--basically anyone the powers-that-be find troublesome.  Case in point this story from Saudi Arabia. Anyone who calls into question any aspect of the status quo is by definition a "terrorist."

It seems the old saying is true: the more things change the more they remain the same.  Another case in point. I am totally sickened by the attitudes/ravings of so many of the political contenders.

I constantly shake my head over the stupidity and viciousness of people. People like whoever threatens a bookshop that is named for an ancient Egyptian goddess.  Isis existed long before the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria became an acronym.

Bobby Jindal, Governor of Louisiana and wanna be candidate for President, just raised the intellectual level of the Repthuglican field slightly--by dropping out. I hope it never becomes his "time."

I would say that someone had given Ben Carson a brain transplant from Sarah Palin--except Sarah never had a brain to transplant. Looks like Ben doesn't really either. How the hell did he get through med school?
