Michael Ian Black is in Twitter Court spouting off about the illegitimacy of Donald Trump and believes we need to do something about it.

Donald Trump, Jr: You’ve got to be kidding me…

The leftists all have a renewed sense of outrage when it was discovered that Donald Trump, Jr, met with a lawyer who had ties to the Russian government under the guise that she had information that could help the Trump campaign.

Of course, her ties were unbeknownst to Trump, Jr and Rob Goldstone, the man who facilitated the meeting.  And equally so, she was someone looking to gain an audience to push another agenda.

Liberals might be Happier than Conservatives

From the Washington Postsmileyface

The reason, they say, is that political conservatives have a tendency to self-aggrandize. When they compared happiness self-reports with tests that measured a tendency to enhance one’s better qualities, they found that the happiness gap could be explained by a self-enhancement gap. In other words, liberals were being more honest about their personal pitfalls.

Essentially, a previous study that had conservatives self-report their happiness suggests that Conservatives were exaggerating and that perhaps, Liberals, were just not being modest.

In the new study, they analyzed photos and posts from both Linked and Twitter.  Apparently, Conservatives tweet more angry and post not as happy pictures as Liberals.. or something.   All because of what you post tells you how much happier or sadder you are.

*sigh*

Hope you all are having a nice day like I am!  🙂

Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelley testifying before Congress

From the Slate:

But the big problem with the mocking argument put forth by Breitbart and the NRA (which did not return a call seeking comment) is that it misses the entire point of Giffords’ advocacy. She is not devoting herself to the cause of expanding background checks because that measure would have stopped Loughner, but because that measure is the one that police and criminal justice experts believe would have the biggest impact on reducing gun violence overall. The same was true of the families of the victims in the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre: Universal background checks would not have stopped Adam Lanza, who got his guns from his mother, but the families wanted to push for whatever reform would limit shooting deaths, period. Making it harder for people with criminal records, histories of domestic violence, and adjudications for mental illness to obtain guns is one of the best measures at our disposal to do so.
