Cassi Road: Halloween arrives as always. The trees along the valley walls are about at peak color now, Lot more red evident today than yesterday.
The forecast for tonight is somewhat worrisome. There is a wind advisory for the region and that’s never a good thing. The winds this morning are spiraling in from the Southwest. While they are generally cool, random bursts of warm air are being channeled down slope.
Congress, the GOP/teavangelists, is still wasting time and money trying to find any way they can to destroy the ACA and to impeach Obama. Obama does not help his own cause by dodging questions with incomplete answers. The entire Benghazi clusterfuck is just another target marker pinned upon his back. Congress can’t change the fact that our Ambassador was killed and won’t acknowledge that their funding cutbacks for diplomatic security had any effect on the event. Since the GOP was defeated during the last budget crisis/debt ceiling fight, they’ll table those until next year and then use them to destroy some other social safety net.
One target will be the widespread internal data mining and frank spying on our citizens. That inquiry is justifiable but should not degenerate into another Cruz, Issa, led witch-hunt.
