"Because the truth of Washington today is that the people who get heard on Capitol Hill are the ones who park their Gulfstream G650s at Reagan National and arrive in a Town Car, checks in hand."

Republicans just might realize that disrespecting our elected president is like disrespecting one's parent - it looks bad for the perpetrator, no matter the argument. Of course, some will disagree, but just like disagreeing with a parent, the position of the president is honorable if not superior just like that of a parent... Behave like a conservative people and not like thugs.
 
March 11, 2015 Dear senators: Thank you for your letter of March 9 explaining your system of government. We were unfamiliar with the complexity of your laws. For three years we have been negotiating a nuclear energy agreement with your president. We now realize our mistake. As your letter makes...

Olympus might just have hit the nail on its head with the attachable lense and open platform product. First, the promise of photo quality is well addressed. Second, the modularity is ahead of its time. Third, the price is enticing compared to CLRs. Forth, the ability to choose the viewer size (I.e. phone, phablet, or a tablet) is just cool if not quite practical.
Olympus has announced its first generation wireless lens camera for smartphones - the Olympus Air A01.

The discussion about the richest 1% is not unique to the USA. It's a global concern. The bumper sticker rhetoric is no longer sufficient to advance our civilization.
ZURICH —The world's richest 1% will soon amass wealth that represents more than that owned by the rest of the world, a report released Monday by the charity Oxfam claims.

The movie "Back to the Future" depicted the drastic consequences of bullying. Everyone seemingly accepted it. It was a good movie people said. Now in real life some people insist on legitimizing such a behavior. Maybe they should see the old movie. It was a good one indeed and no one objected to it's portrayal of life, however colored.
One of the most common reasons children seek mental-health services today is being the victim of bullying. There is now good evidence that being bullied is associated with depression, anxiety, poor sleep, falling academic grades and poor long-term outcomes in general.

Cuba, nostalgia, reality, a good read.
A road trip across the island revealed a slowly changing Cuba — beautiful, tired and looking ahead.

Social conspiracy, or is it? Conservative values are time tested. Progressive values are about future possibilities. The problem arises when people obstruct research and data collection. Unfortunately NRA does both and uses conservative leaning politicians to do the work.

Instead of voting on whether humans or nature is responsible for "global warming" Republicans should vote on how to protect people from financial loss if not the loss of life due to increasing extreme weather events? When will they grow a collective brain?

Time to go to Cuba! Thanks to the Obama administration's efforts any american can now directly travel to the majestic island. Granted, only specific groups of people are supposedly allowed to travel... But the US government will no longer screen the travelers placing the approval process in the hands of the american people (as in making the US government smaller)!
The Obama administration this week lifted some travel and trade restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba, but commercial airlines will not be flocking to Havana for at least another year, experts say. The new rules, which took effect on Friday, removed the need for travelers to get approval ...

The Republican's divide and concur strategy to same sex marriage does not work against the cannabis movement. The states are quicker to legalize pot than they are to ban same sex marriage. Interestingly the conservative electorate largely doesn't have a problem with the "big government" and the "spending" on this issue...

We the people voted the government into a gridlock. Now we need to stop politics of evangelizing and start taking!
The Obama administration and many congressional Republicans have been loath to go anywhere near the experiment with marijuana legalization in Colorado and other states. But pressure is mounting on Washington to take a stand on pot, and perhaps soon. In a lawsuit filed last month with the U.S. Supreme Court, attorneys general of Nebraska and Oklahoma...

Connecting 3 buildings with Ethernet cable equivalent links. At least CAT5 (100Mbs) speeds with 1/3 of CAT6 (1,000Mbs) on the clear line of sight bridge. (The non-dish, vertical dual antenna access point is for Wi-Fi devices and is not part of the links.)

It's a relatively small place but the brew is good, the seats are nice, and the parking spots are always available.
