Bought My Wife a New Jeep Renegade

A 2016 year end closeout.  Of course, the rebates that they adverise are generally not available in conjunction with the killer loans (0.0% for 60 months; 1.9% for 72 months), but the $1000 off coupon in the mail was.  It is not quite as fancy as the Jaguar of course, but the driver's seat has a bunch of nice manual adjustments.  It's not quite as wide in the cargo area as the TrailBlazer, but it also fits better in the garage.  Because of Jeep's repair record, we bought the extended bumper-to-bumper warranty, which covers lost or destroyed key fobs.

For a 4 cylinder, it has a lot of pep.  Now just need to sell the 2007 TrailBlazer (175,000 miles) and ideally the 2005 Jaguar X-type (72,000 miles).

CalExit's Russian Connection

Since the left is playing, "Trump's a Russian agent games," this SF channel 7 report suggests the left has projection problems.  2/15/17 ABC 7:

It would be easy to dismiss this as some fringe group trying to make California into its own country, but former intelligence officials tell the ABC7 News I-Team the ballot initiative leader's ties to Russia raise serious questions.

"You don't need this to be involved in California's campaign for independence," Marinelli said holding up an American flag.

He's the leader of the Yes California campaign, also dubbed Calexit. Marinelli is an American who lives in Russia, but his movement is getting a lot of attention stateside.
Louis Marinelli has received support in Russia from a far-right nationalist group that wants to break up the United States. Former intelligence officials say that association raises serious questions about his intent.

Firearms License Fees

I'm writing a law review article about inordinate firearms license fees,  $100 might be reaasonable; $10,000 would be clearly prohibitory.  (Think about parade permits.)  Give me a pointer to your state's website listing their firearms license (either home or concealed carry).

For those who live in the USA: in some places, a home or premises license is required to have a gun in your home or place of business.

Connecticut government has already done the job.
