This week's mood-lifting activity! 
http://www.muminthemadhouse.com/2015/04/19/free-colouring-pages-for-adults/ It's also reminded me how much I love Dover coloring books and free printable sample pages--I used to print out tons when Gui was little.

"Haidt found that moderates and conservatives could accurately predict how liberals and conservatives would judge each statement. But liberals were far less capable of mirroring their ideological counterparts' thinking. Those describing themselves as "very liberal" did worst. Apparently, contra Krugman, the more liberal you are, the less able you are to understand other people's beliefs."

http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2012/03/4875 This is very well put: "The normal person considers it a victory to get what he wants. The bully only considers it a victory if he has further humiliated his opponent. The totalitarian does not believe he has won until everyone tells him he is right, and imitates him, and sings his praises." You see this not just on a government level (with the HHS mandate) but also on an interpersonal level, within families, in the workplace, etc.

Drinking wine and listening to my Dad's collection of Irish music, while my mom shows us silly stuff online. Good times.

"That this letter didn’t receive media notice is certainly true, even though it is defiant and accuses the White House of nothing less than asserting raw political power to achieve its goals. I mean, it’s juicy and salacious stuff, as far as these things go. But, you see, the media were too busy talking about really important things, like how to spin an unprecedented attack on religious liberty into something about Rush Limbaugh. Literally. And come on, what’s more important, the Constitution or talk radio? What’s more important, the way the White House treats religious liberty advocates or the way Rush Limbaugh treats abortion-rights activists? I think we all know the answer."
