In December, documentary photographer Carol Highsmith received a letter from Getty Images accusing her of copyright infringement for featuring one of her own photographs on her own website.

+Robert Quattlebaum I didn't do a lot of research on the mechanics of her gift of the images and the licensing used. I'd think either she or the Library of Congress would have the images covered under some creative common license that should spell out allowed uses. Those licenses have been tested in court. I don't see how they are licensed on her site.

"“It’s the power of wishful thinking. None of us want to accept that opposition to civil rights is the legacy that we’ve inherited,” Roy says.

He expands on this idea: “It’s a common observation on the left, but it’s an observation that a lot of us on the right genuinely believed wasn’t true — which is that conservatism has become, and has been for some time, much more about white identity politics than it has been about conservative political philosophy. I think today, even now, a lot of conservatives have not come to terms with that problem.”

This, Roy believes, is where the conservative intellectual class went astray. By refusing to admit the truth about their own party, they were powerless to stop the forces that led to Donald Trump’s rise. They told themselves, over and over again, that Goldwater’s victory was a triumph.

But in reality, it created the conditions under which Trump could thrive. Trump’s politics of aggrieved white nationalism — labeling black people criminals, Latinos rapists, and Muslims terrorists — succeeded because the party’s voting base was made up of the people who once opposed civil rights.

“[Trump] tapped into something that was latent in the Republican Party and conservative movement — but a lot of people in the conservative movement didn’t notice,” Roy concludes, glumly."

+Jürgen Hubert what should it matter if he was Islamic there is separation of church and state. If a socialist is fairly elected than that shouldn't matter either. I voted for Obama btw.

For anyone that wonders how it is that the party of Lincoln could change so drastically to be what it is now, this will help. For anyone wondering how we can change from the dysfunctional party's we have today, this will let you see that the party's aren't just the same over time. They have changed and will change. They can even go away and be replaced by another. The republican party didn't exist until just before the civil war when they replaced the Whig's.

Seems the US presidential candidates are having trouble finding a time when there isn't a high profile terror incident going on to announce their VP picks. Bad omen.
He is widely regarded as pleasant, optimistic and capable if a bit, well, boring.

I wouldn't count on it +Amy Rothstein. Jill Stein on the other hand offered to let Bernie have the top spot on the Green ticket.

"The median age of a primetime Fox News viewer is 68, according to Nielsen. That means half of the channel’s viewers are older than 68. CNN’s median primetime viewer, meanwhile, is 59."

The sling proved to be a useless weapon, but the channel is so unique. I've seen a lot of those videos. It's impressive how he builds things starting with making a fire with sticks and then creating the required tools from a stone axe and up to hand drills and everything. Amazing stuff.

A truly disgusting candidate for VP, of course.
Donald Trump's running mate Mike Pence used five horrifically offensive words to describe his thoughts on women in military.

Well, considering the IQ level of your average male, he's not wrong. Putting men and women together like that IS a recipe for disaster. But it's not the women's fault. It's the neanderthal's.

Simply Free and Open
Introduction
I'm an open source and technology geek. I'm also very interested in history, politics, literature and nature. I love blues music but I listen to music of most all of the last 100 years. I need intellectual engagement, especially through reading and writing. I worked for someone else most of my life but now I'm reformed, an entrepreneur.

I love the global nature of the internet in general and social media specifically. Our social platforms including our sites and blogs allow for us to be part of communities as large as the whole world and as small as our neighborhood. The biggest changes we will see over the coming decades will stem from global community interaction that is only possible because of the maturation of our technologies. I love that and it gives me hope in a troubled world.
