I first opened this article from Politico expecting a partisan piece rife with ironic spins and whining to the tune of nails on a chalk board.  I was plesantly surprised.  

If any of you remember, I viewed both Trump and Clinton as a poison to the American people as they battled to acquire the position as the most powerful person in the world.  While, unlike many of my liberal friends, I accepted the fact that some one that I didn’t vote for won and I now work for President Trump; so he gets the respect befitting his position.  That doesn’t mean I agree with everything he’s done, but I also don’t deny, much like this article, that even in the bad he has made some very good things happen.

Give it a read.  It might relieve a few of your concerns from the last year to know that the ship isn’t really burning like some would have you believe.  

Also, as I’m writing this, I’m watching the New Years Rocking Eve, and I felt it an opportune time to make mention that Jenny McCarthy is an unequivocal idiot.  That is all.  Enjoy your new year.  

Hell, I’m Drinking Now


If this article wasn’t enough for you personally to highlight why we all drink to uncomfortable amounts, then you may need a psychotherapist.  Hell, I’m drinking as I read this article and write this now.  Happy holidays, or something…

Star Wars as an Insurgency 

How to watch ‘Star Wars’ like an insurgent

Upon reading the above article I was impressed with the depth in which the author, Sarah Parkinson, detailed common occurrences and over-arching themes of both the rebellion and modern day insurgency.  

It also introduced me to the “Machete Order”; which im now interested in watching the series in this method and seeing the evolution of the rebellion.  I do, however, refuse to acknowledge that there are no redeeming plot lines in Episode I that contribute to the formation of the rebellion, despite having been the genesis of Jar Jar Binks.
