Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album4
GOTV edition.

Otherwise, great Tumblr site here, NOLA to New York, and you've probably seen this Onion article -- satire outperforms "real" news. To which I'll only add this as my personal .000002 cents worth: whether global warming specifically caused this storm isn't really the issue. The issue is that global warming WILL cause storms like this...and we'll have to deal with them, either as a nation, or by ourselves. Personally, I prefer the national approach where we all work together, and hope the East Coast recovers as quickly as possible...and I'll gladly donate, take action, or even be taxed to help that happen. We're still one country.

Have a good weekend.

Facts Be Damned, Says Mitch The Turtle

From Album4
Timothy Noah:
The New York Times reports that on September 28 the Library of Congress's nonpartisan Congressional Research Service withdrew, under pressure from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R.-Ky., and other Senate Republicans, a widely-circulated study concluding that since 1945 tax cuts have had no measurable impact on economic growth.

OK, Maybe It WAS A Sign

From Album4
Storms are God's wrath? I can just as easily claim it's God's way of saying, "Hey, denying global warming is something strictly for idiots. Oh, and do you REALLY want to vote next Tuesday for a return to the days of Heckuva Job Brownie and Mission Accomplished?"

Just saying.

No, It's Not "God's Judgment"

From Album4
I forget where I saw the list of wingnut twit-tweets, but goddamnit, no pun intended, divine wrath doesn't drive natural disasters.

How we deal with them, though, is something that a just deity would consider in determining our fate...just saying.
