Seriously Star Wars! If I had the coin to spare, I’d have one. Just to have one.
Could it be due to the forced retirement and/or replacement of major personnel? Did it have to take so long once the decision was made to allow time for these removals? Or is there something building beneath the floorboards?
I found this groovy thing over at FB just a minute ago, and I have to share it with both my WordPress and my Facebook peeps. Let me give you a clip, you can go to the link for the rest:
A Forbes columnist is calling into question whether or not President Obama’s second term should have an asterisk next to it. Paul Roderick Gregory’s recent article questions whether Obama’s second term win wasn’t staged by the media, and therefore all history books should note that he won by manipulating the press.
Well, we already knew this. But when Forbes calls it into question it becomes a taste less “right wing nutjob conspiracy theory”, yes? The only problem being, how in the fuck are we ever going to dig our way out of this hole? FDR started this shit, and we recovered from it. Never quite the same, and the baggage we carry from that is still on our backs. But what this time?
Gotta love it. Transparency my ass.

My son has turned me back on to “ambient/electronica” music. I used to love it, then I faded away from it. But this album, and almost everything else this band has done in a multi-decade existence, are in my collection.

You cannot long rule an armed people, right? Well, EO 13662 has something to say about that:
Do you have a Russian manufactured AK style rifle or shotgun on order, or were you thinking about purchasing one? Not any more! Today, the U.S. Department of The Treasury has announced the president’s latest executive order (Executive Order 13662),slapping more sanctions on Russia for the Ukraine crisis. Today, the OFAC (The Office of Foreign Assets Control) is introducing sanctions targeting specific persons or entities. Among the names listed in these sanctions is one very familiar to almost all of us gun owners: Kalashnikov Concern and Izhmash R&D. Of course, Kalashnikov manufactures the original AK variants and Izhmash manufactures AK variants under the Saiga name. Below is the exact wording of this specific line item in this sanction:
Yeah, I think you’re going to want to read the rest of that, and maybe click the link.
