Omegacon Movie Room Schedule
So if you are going to Omegacon this weekend, here is a sneak peek at the Movie room schedule. Most people at Omegacon aren’t interested in watching movies all weekend and that’s cool. But if you need a two-hour break from Settlers of Catan, here are some choices for you!
This year’s movie room theme is Toys and Games. I have no idea why it took me so long to use the theme for the movie room. It’s kind of perfect.

Colorado Politician Creates a Bill Based on a Satirical Article
I’m going to briefly address the absurdity of a politician freaking out over a bullshit article suggesting that people are using food stamps to buy pot in Colorado. So convinced was she that this was actually happening that she wrote a law designed to ensure that it wouldn’t happen.
But what the hell is with Fox News and other conservatives falling all over each other to freak out about legalized pot? Does this actually spell the decline and death of Western Civilization? I ask this as someone who has never smoked pot, doesn’t expect he ever will and doesn’t give a crap if someone else wants to.
I thought Republicans are supposed to be the party of small government and yet they are the ones completely horrified at the idea of saving money in the war on drugs by cutting back on the number of fronts where we are fighting.
I’d think their problem would be more focused on the regulation of the pot industry. Maybe the pot dealers don’t have enough freedom and the assumption is they’d be more free with a deregulated but illegal industry? Or legalized pot is good as long as pot growers can do whatever the fuck they want?
It’s like they are smoking conservativism but they aren’t inhaling.
