mark hamill is a nice guy

mark hamill is a nice guy I would really like to be friends with Mark Hamill and maybe spend a few weekends watching his dogs when he's not at his Malibu home and maybe seeing what I could sell on ebay using his wifi and maybe borrowing money. I'm like the Billy Carter/Roger Clinton Jr. of my family. Except for the drunken, alcoholic slob part.

it's as bad (or good) as you thought

From the New York Times: The Year In Charts

A number of interesting graphs here, but I will re-post only one:

"The evidence is overwhelming: More guns mean more deaths. In the United States, which has more guns in the hands of civilians than does any other developed country, gun-related deaths per 100,000 inhabitants vastly exceed the level in those countries. Meanwhile, countries such as Britain and Japan have small numbers of guns in private hands and very few gun-related deaths. Between 2001 and 2013, domestic gun violence killed more people in the United States than AIDS, illegal drug overdoses, wars and terrorism combined."

a current lack of blogging due to limited blogging space

For the time being, blogging  on a blog no one reads will be extremely limited due to the constraints imposed by editing a book no one will read. And limitations imposed by time and space. Virtual isn't free, you know.

Have a Happy or at least Logical New Year. #LLAP

blast from the past (aka paster blaster)

gop brides: many called, only one can be sold

A freight car loaded with would-be brides for the Republican Party paused before bright lights and cameras last night. Much assent was heard from the crowd as each marketed himself as the heir to Reagan's throne. Some sold themselves as willing to order others to kill with utter ruthlessness; others, as byproducts of hyper-efficient Darwinian free markets which weed out the weak, frail and sickly, leaving only the most pompous and bloated of windbags alive. Others said basically the same thing but tried to appear reasonable about how many would be slaughtered in the name of freedom. After what felt like an eternity, the small herd was packed into the freight car, and the circus traveled to yet another town, to amuse the adults and delight the children with their antics and promises to rain death from above on anyone who screws with our great nation...and so on and so on, till the final day of selection arrives.

only 6.75 months for liberals to continue hating hillary

In the name of continuing my attacks on Hillary because I am a one-man army with a keyboard,  (#DifferenceMaker) (#StateOfPerpetualDissatisfaction) (#ProbablyFullOfIt), I will post this photo of a table of a their respective records on important issues. 

Take that, Ms. Clinton!
