You Don't Have To Be Crazy To Own A Gun In Missouri...

From Album 5
...but it doesn't hurt. No, really. In fact, the wingers are trying to impeach the governor for, among other things, thinking "certified crazy" is grounds for denying gun ownership.

OK, maybe it's just me, but that's...bugfuck insane.

Solar Eclipse

From Album 5
Just what we DON'T need, and as a solar energy user...to comment more than I normally do, my system, which, yes, was financed in large part by tax credits, was never meant to drain resources, take from other customers, or to be a  full swap from the existing fossil and nuclear based grid. But it IS a start, and every little bit helps. The system is almost fully paid for, provides anywhere from 25 to 50 percent of my consumption, depending on the season, and I'd encourage everyone to at least consider a renewable option. Thinking tribally is not an option in the modern world...

Friday Cat Blogging With Photoshop

From Album 5
Magical realism edition...speaking just for myself, I found One Hundred Years of Solitude very...frustrating, but Chronicle of a Death Foretold superb. The latter still gives me a chill when remembering just how good it is.

Have a good weekend.

That's A Hell Of A Lot Of Tea

From Album 5
$22 million over four years? As Upton Sinclair said, "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it."

Well...Obviously. I Mean, The Resemblance Is Uncanny

From Album 5
And adding further insult, as Attaturk notes, Gandhi became a victim of gun violence.

Yeah, Just The Guy We Want Running Things

From Album 5
Well, that might be a little harsh -- even Barney Fife wouldn't get caught within ten miles of the Bundy ranch lunatics.
