 I was going to say something about a banana in a tailpipe, but changed my mind.

I think there are bits of a lot of different political philosophy that work just fine on their own, and there are bits that jerks and zealots can over emphasize to polarize and exploit people that want to belong to a given movement.

Because I don't want to demonize anyone that may feel that 75% of a philosophy is close enough to associate themselves with it, in broad terms, for example, I'm just going to throw this out there.

No matter how stringently you may want to interpret it, mandating vaccines for deadly and/or chronic diseases would seem to easily fall within "providing for the general welfare" and "providing for the common defense" of the country.

Not all threats to the population have to be people from other countries that want to kill us with weapons.  In fact, given that some weapons are actually biological agents that may be deadly and/or chronic diseases, this would seem to be all the more evident.

I guess what I'm saying is, if you want to argue for more or less government intervention, this probably isn't the hill you want to die on.

Nothing very important, just an update on the lack of updates.  
It's been so long since I posted that I probably dropped my audience from 7.3 people down to 2.1.  For the 2.1 of you that may be left, I'm sorry it took so long to update the blog, but unfortunately January has been one Hell...

Having a dog curled up and sleeping on you, all content, makes you feel like a better person for a while.  May not be true, but it makes you feel that way for a while at least.

More importantly it makes the dog happy.

So, according to Reign, France and Scotland were once populated by English folks?

No, no. Forget accents. The real takeaway is that everywhere is populated by insanely HOT people. And peasants.

I started out this Christmas a little down.  Because of scheduling and when things had to be put in the oven and when the kids were going to show up, the wife and I didn't end up going to the same mass.

At church, our priest mentioned loved ones that are no longer with us.  This reminded me of the people that I have lost over the years, and how it has changed the celebration of Christmas in our family.

My grandmother and sister had the most profound effect, but before either of them passed on, my uncle and grandfather had died.  My sister moved to Indiana and my parents and brother moved to Florida.

Our old traditions, what I had been used to for years, were largely gone, and this left me very sad this morning.  

When I finally came home, the kids were already there.  We only have the two youngest at home, and the two oldest boys came home, along with our oldest's fiance.  

After we had lunch and opened presents, I was feeling a bit ashamed of how sad I was in the morning.  I will always miss those that have passed on, and my family that have moved away.  But I have blessed to have children that love me, and friends that love me as well, and a wife that puts up with all of that.

I hope that everyone that is missing something, whose loss is felt more acutely during the holidays, can still find joy in this day.  I hope that people that are alone today can find some solace as well.  If I have interacted with you, either online or in person, I hope there is something, anything, I can do to help make the march of days more enjoyable for you.

Just random thoughts about new Star Wars canon thus far, focusing on the books and new comics from Marvel.  And spoilers.  
It may come as no small surprise that I'm a Star Wars fan. No, seriously, quit laughing at me.  I know I say obvious stuff sometimes. Anyway, I've been keeping up with the new canon offerings from various sources, and there i...

I think you're a little harsher than I would be on the comics, but right in general. I actually stopped reading the first DV issue to make sure I hadn't missed an issue of the main title, even though I knew I hadn't.

I loved the Lando episode of Rebels. I mean, I like the show anyway, but this was exactly what I would have expected for a Lando episode.

I am mainly looking to find local gamers to pass along my excess games to, but if anyone is interested in the US, we might be able to figure something out as well.  Thanks for your time and interest in advance!

The whole family together.  I have a feeling I'm going to get Vayl and her "kids" into some kind of fight even before I finish with all of the details, now that they are assembled.
