The Democratic and Republican parties want more than anything else to cause themselves to have more power. +Bernie Sanders knows that but also knows support from those that call themselves democrats is something he needs.

I personally voted Green Party in 2012 but like many on the left I'm just looking for the best option for real change. In 2012 I knew for sure that Obama didn't stand for that. I decided that a 3rd party vote is more than protest just as Sanders running is more than protest.

If we keep voting for 2 parties, we will continue to have 2 corrupt parties. It's really that plain and simple. Sanders is likely to either morph this into a 3rd party run or settle for bringing the democrats a bit more to the left. Right now I plan to support good ideas, where ever they come from.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a controversial, secret agreement that would undermine online freedoms worldwide by exporting dangerous copyright rules. The White House is trying to bypass debate on the contents of the deal by passing a bill known as Fast Track. It's about to be introduced, so we need to speak out now.

The good news is Congress is in the loop, the bad news is the American people aren't.  So much for transparent govt.?

This isn't only playing out in Alabama and Kansas. Republican policy doesn't leave a workable government. Republican policy makers don't understand or care about that. They are either bought and paid for by the oligarchs or are just plain stupid. That is the real truth of the matter.

"Folks, this isn't going to be solved by undoing earmarks or shifting money from one pile to another. It won't get fixed by closing state parks or laying off county court clerks. This problem will only get solved when Alabama quits clinging to its racist and regressive 1901 Constitution. It needs to get thrown in the trash provided we can find a dumpster big enough to hold all of it."
Mama sometimes used to say, "Be careful what you ask for, son, 'cause ya just might get it!" In the case of the Alabama GOP, they certainly got what they asked for and now they're about to pay the price for trying to deceive Alabama voters; especially if they continue to refuse to pay the price for basic government services.

The Russian president desperately needs to show that an independent, democratic, rule-of-law Ukraine can’t work.

Ukraine was independent and democratic BEFORE illegal overthrow of government. It is interesting that Caliphate of Chaos and Kingdom of Genocides with their puppets are crying now after their SECOND FAILED "colored revolution".

What is the relationship between free and open source software on the one hand, and "free culture," "open source culture" or "open society" on the other?

I used to play his album, and Robbie Robertson's album a lot together... The two of them complemented each other.

I'm finally seeing commonality where there is war in this time, a common condition other than war. There seems to be no government willing and able to productively manage the nation for the people. It doesn't help that institution in the world can be trusted to have the welfare of the citizens and their future at the top of their priorities either.

True. Very wet year. I'm going to search in the Slaughterhouse Gulch/Shawnee area in the deep canyons. I'll let you know what I find.

I am breaking more than one of my rules with this, but to make a point of course. This is Fox "news", that used this Microsoft image (for who knows what reason) listing what Free and Open Source Software can be used instead of expensive proprietary software for our common needs.

When you're already spending several hundred dollars or more on a new computer, you don't want to be spending the same amount on software.

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.

This is my favorite restaurant in Greeley, not just Mexican Restaurant. I love the food, especially the Molcajete. I've never had that dish anywhere else and it is great. Your choice of beef, chicken, both or seafood in a fantastic sauce that has avocado, cheese and more, served in a Molcajete (stoneware mortar) with their fresh tortilla's of your choice. They have a great patio and a very friendly staff and atmosphere. There are quite a few Mexican options in Greeley and this is my favorite hands down.
