Temperature Changes

It's 65 degrees and I'm shaking like Nicole Ritchie being confronted with a plate of southern-fried food. It's a mundane thing, but a bit surreal when I think that I would literally have been shirtless in the same weather just seven months ago.

Acclimation, bitches.


Why are we, at this very moment, sitting on Iran's doorstep?

I'm sure it has nothing to do with the elections, or Karl Rove's oft alluded to pre-election "suprise." We're simply being prepared, by running "exercises" to ward off an imminent threat. Right? Never mind the fact that they are, at minimum, five years away from even one nuclear weapon. Never mind the fact that exercises such as these always seem to preclude another false flag event. Gulf of Tonkin, anyone?

Over the next few weeks, I wonder what the suprise could possibly be?

Suprise! We've begun Bomb the Brown People: Episode III.

Suprise! Another election was stolen, but we swear it wasn't us. Let's foster unity, not division. Hey, look over here, we're at war again! Oh no! Be frightened, the Brown People are coming! Never mind, look over here instead, we're declaring Saddam guilty. Execution Pay-per-View in two weeks. Tune in and begin the 9-11 healing.

Don't want to stay in your 'Free Speech Zone' because you're pissed off about the elections? We have a new series for you to watch, and perhaps participate in (if you're lucky) called Martial Law & Order. Hey, who said "martial"? It's social distancing and it's for your safety. Ripped from the headlines, indeed.

You know, you're right, it may all be bullshit and it could end up that nothing happens. We may be able to clear both Houses. The Dems may act responsibly (though I'm not at all confident thanks so much Nancy Pelosi) and begin impeachment proceedings immediately. But with only the words of the current wise and benevolent leaders to hold to, words that up to this point have been proven to be half-truths or outright lies (aren't those the same?), would you bet on it? I'm not a big fan of situations that are coin-flip, at best, and I'm sincerely hoping the same is true of you, as well.

If that coin lands on the wrong side, acclimation is gonna take on a whole new meaning..
