Watch As I Wave My Nerd Flag

Be prepared for a journey of nerdy excellence aboard the TARDIS, Starship Enterprise, and the Millennium Falcon. On occasion, I've also been known to drive a DeLorean. When not driving the DeLorean, I chill with my friends the Winchester brothers in their Metallicar (1967 Chevy Impala) listening to the greatest hits of mullet rock, saving people, and hunting things. You know, the family business.

Watch as I successfully wield the universe's only double-rainbow colored sonic lightsaber in the defense against droids, storm troopers, Daleks, Cybermen, Orcs, Uruk-hai, cave trolls, Nazgul, and Klingons. I'm also a skilled archer and quite handy with a sword. And a laser gun.

When not saving the universe, I like to read, knit, and dance.

The best kind of southern gay!

It’s an election year. A lot of Democrats don’t know how it would play in their party, and Republicans don’t want to change anything. We like the path we’re on now. We [Republicans] can denounce it if it goes bad, and praise it if it goes well and then ask what took him so long.

Jack Kingston (R-GA) accidentally tells the truth publicly and reveals why the GOP is in no particular rush to vote for or against military strikes on ISIS: taking every possible opportunity to deride President Obama, engaging in unprecedented obstructionism, and playing politics is far more important to Republicans than actually doing their jobs as U.S. congressmen and women

But this should come as no surprise to anyone who remembers the Republican meeting held at the Caucus Room—on the day of PBO’s 2008 inauguration—where Paul Ryan and other prominent Republicans met and pledged an oath to obstruct absolutely any and ALL forthcoming legislation from the Obama administration

BREAKING: California Gov. Brown Signs Gun Restraining Order Bill

thepoliticalfreakshow:

Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a bill making California the first state that allows family members to ask a judge to remove firearms from a relative who appears to pose a threat.

Assemblywoman Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, introduced Assembly Bill 2014 after a deadly rampage in May near the University of California, Santa Barbara that left six people dead and 13 injured from gunshots and stab wounds.

Supporters say it could help prevent future attacks like the one in Isla Vista, while opponents say it would erode gun rights.

Santa Barbara County sheriff’s deputies had visited the killer, 22-year-old community college student Elliot Rodger, weeks before the rampage after his parents raised concerns about his behavior. But deputies determined he was not a threat.

The legislation makes California the first state to let family members go directly to a judge to request a restraining order that would prohibit gun possession, at least temporarily. Law enforcement officers in Connecticut, Indiana and Texas already can seek a judge’s order allowing them to seize guns from people they deem to be a danger.

Skinner’s bill would extend that authority to family members.

A court hearing would be set within 14 days for firearm owners to argue that they are not a danger. A related bill also waiting action, SB505, seeks to encourage law enforcement to check gun purchase databases before conducting welfare checks.

So often we don’t take these diatribes and manifestos seriously, and so often innocent people pay the price.  If this law can stop just one mass shooting, then it’s a law well passed.
