The term 'Oh, Snap!' has been replaced in the current media by the word 'Unexpectedly'. You'll see it whenever the event does not fit the forecast narrative.  This post will be updated for several days, and from the top.
Eurocrats strike over David Cameron's call to cut EU salaries

As Glenn Reynolds says:  "How will anyone tell?" 


{ Especially considering CNBC touted 'economic improvement' as helping re-elect Obama..}
CNBC:Why US Economy May Be Headed for Another Recession

Umm.. because we never really got out of the first one?


Stock Market continues fall for second day..

The markets took heavy losses for a second day in a row Thursday in a broad-based retreat late in the session. Every major sector closed to the downside.

John Kerry invites derision..
Twitter has become the great democratizer of the internet.  Kerry, among others, has found this out:
was surprised to run into Mitt this afternoon in Sylvania, OH
 Which lead to...
Said the life of no party, ever.
Is that Ted Kennedy's shot-glass in your avi? 
This coming from Herman Monster. 
And many more..
And, of course, there's the rapidly viral soon to be recognized as the  Comedy Channel for The Right, except funnier.
Here's a great collection of hijack tweets from Barack Obama's Tleg for props..

Givers: Snarky conservatives delight in saying ‘nice things’ about Obama

Of course, this can't last.  Twitter may go to a two tier system. One for the elite, anther for the plebes.


Many reports coming in about touch screen voting machines checking for Obama when Romney zone is tapped.

Voting machines in Ohio, NC, Nev. switching Romney votes to votes for Obama

I suspect something MIGHT be fishy because last election cycle the lefties accused the GOP of rigging the machines. Unknown if the opposite happens, if it doesnt happen when Obama is touched... probably just dumb luck, right?

Of course, it is.. or part of a Nefarious Right Wing Plan


FEMA has no water to give out. Or much else, either. 
In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that matter -- stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.
Reorganized, since they failed so badly in Katrina, with a War Room and Quick Reaction Force.. they are doing all that's humanly possible, I'm sure.


Geezers refuse to leave work force or die, take all the jobs created since 09.. {statistically, of course}

America's Geriatric Work F(a)rce

"...of the 3.3 million jobs "created" (updated for October's data), a gasp-inducing 3.8 million has gone to workers aged 55 and over, or the one cohort that according to conventional wisdom is retiring, and actively leaving the workforce. How can America's elderly workers account for more than the total? Simple: workers in the young (16-19) and prime (25-54) cohorts have cumulatively lost a whopping 1.3 million, with just the 25-54 age group losing 842,000 jobs (don't believe us: spot check it right here courtesy of the Fed). "

WaPo thinks there may be something fishy in the goings-on  about Benghazi..
"NEWS REPORTING about the Sept. 11 assault on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, has moved from the political and mostly pointless issue of when the Obama administration had publicly acknowledged that a terrorist attack had taken place to more essential questions: "
Of course, lying to the American people to cover someone's ass is mostly pointless.  That's why Nixon wasn't impeached or forced out over that 18 minutes of silence on the Oval Office tapes. Hmmm.. what was the body count from Watergate, again?

Expectedly, the poor schmuck who made a video no one watched and didnt have a thing to do with Benghazi is still in jail.

Another reason I'm a's only decimal points right?

Because I'm an engineer AND I use common sense...

Get this:  Taking full advantage of Sandy, some guy with a Decimal Disorder, who has signed on to the Manmade global warming religion has laid out for you why we are all in deep danger:

How a Warm Earth fueled Hurricane Sandy


Well, since hurricanes start from ocean surface v atmosphere heat, that's about all the 'real facts' this guy has.  Let's start here:

The Atlantic ocean is five degrees warmer than is was when most of you were born.  Let that sink in for a minute.  The entire Atlantic ocean averages five degrees warmer.

NO.. it does NOT!  I wonder how he determines average reader age, but the point is that the Sea Surface Temperature  is Point Five degrees C, that's 0.5, warmer.

And THEN he claims:

The math behind climate change is simple. Roughly 1/4 of one percent of the atmosphere is composed of gases that  trap energy from the sun.  Carbon released for power and transport has altered that and we are now racing toward 1/2 of one percent doing the same job. The earth is warming.
Which he handily illustrates by putting up a chart showing the atmosphere is 99.95 % NON-Greenhouse.  I guess that excludes water vapor, which is far more effective as a 'heat trapper' than CO2 could ever be.  Whatever. that looks to me like .05% might be greenhouse.  One half of one percent would be .5%  We learned that in grade school, right?  Of course he missed that day  but evidently got the 'Social Science' 

But this takes the Grand Prize Dunce Cap:

This ever-so-slight thickening of the atmosphere alters the balance of energy absorbed and released by the planet.  The process is analogous to the gears in a car.  Rev your engine to 5000 RPM in "Park" and you'll run out of gas as quickly as someone racing around a track with their tachometer in the same spot.  We haven't changed how much energy is being introduced to the system, we've changed how the system is dealing with that energy.
Un-be-freakin-leivable!  Thickening?  Uses same amount of gas just revving as when it's doing work?  ANY car guy or person who has studied high school physics knows better!

This is why I am so damned patronizing to idiots who fall all over themselves trumpeting doom and gloom.
The whole damned article is a lie..  doubtless unintentional, by an idiot who knows nothing but what he wants to believe.. but a lie, nonetheless.

And btw.. when he is shamed and humiliated into dumping this crap into the memory hole, there's gonna be a record of it lots of places including my PC.
