I wrote about finally registering as a Republican in 2004 a few months ago. The day I never expected to happen has finally arrived.

As someone who has been working in Government and Education the last 25 years, this makes a whole lot of sense to me. Especially now.
Less than two years after my presentation titled “Open source for the government”, and almost exactly one year after I became advisor to…

Taylor Swift and Friends liked the old days when they were getting ripped off by the record companies much better.
A range of big names from every genre -- from Taylor Swift to Sir Paul McCartney, Vince Gill to Vince Staples, Carole King to the Kings of Leon –- are calling for reform of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, which regulates copyright online.

I was an early subscriber to Ricochet back when it started but eventually let my membership lapse. Judging from the lack of coherence in this piece and the lauding comments I am quite pleased not to be apart of it.

#NeverTrump
We know that freedom of speech is under attack in America. Whole areas of discourse are off limits in the public square; wrongthink is punished by federal or state investigation; and any attempt to puncture the illusions of the unhinged Far-Left is increasingly met by violence which — in the classical statist two-step — leads to official censorship on the…

Fun and Games with "Ex" Neo-Nazis

Anyone been watching W. Kamau Bell's United Shades of America? I've been enjoying it thus far. In the first episode http://money.cnn.com/2016/04/23/media/w-kamau-bell-kkk-united-shades/, he goes to meet some of the current members of the Ku Klux Klan - not the Alt-Right types who claim not to like wearing sheets, but the old-fashioned kind. Except the ones in Harrison, Arkansas, who also claim they don't like wearing sheets.

Anyway one of the guys he meets is one Billy Roper Jr. Pictured here http://www.vice.com/read/the-kkk-embraces-diversity-in-harrison-arkansas and profiled here https://www.splcenter.org/fighting-hate/extremist-files/individual/billy-roper

Anyway, I got into a Twitter spat with a Trump Supporter last night and it took sometime but I finally realized who he was. One Billy Roper. And right now we don't seem to be the best of friends.

It is a strange world sometimes.


Residents of Harrison, in Boone County, Arkansas, want to move beyond the town's racist history. The trouble is, the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan have settled in the area and made it their national headquarters.

I no longer believe anything James Comey says

"Hillary's interview has no transcript. FBI closed an investigation without recording an interview with person at the center of it." - https://twitter.com/redsteeze/status/751090704269602816

From 2004:

At a news conference announcing the charges against Ms. Stewart, James B. Comey, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, said, ''This criminal case is about lying -- lying to the F.B.I., lying to the S.E.C., lying to investors.'' Addressing a question that has long hovered over the investigation, he added, ''Martha Stewart is being prosecuted not for who she is, but because of what she did.''

Very cool - and as an Authy user, I am glad I can do this with native Android and don't need to install the Google Authenticator app.
Google has supported two-factor authentication for more than five years now, but the search giant is making it a little easier to use this week. Previously, you've had to manually enter a code from...

It's too  bad that the current version of Captain America in the Marvel comics would be part of the mob.

Moving the web forward

I spent 4 nights there during DragonCon. Outside of a refrigerator, there are no frills. The rooms are small and have minimal furniture. There seemed to be no snack machines on the site so bring your own. There was also (as stated) no Internet access offered. On the plus side, the room rate was extremely reasonable compared to other hotels in the area. A Pizza Hut that makes deliveries is very close by. Driving distance to downtown is 5 minutes. It isn't the kind of place I would want to vacation in, but as a place to go back to at the end of the night and leave early the next morning, it suited my purposes extremely well.
