Chase Bank nonchalantly recognizing same sex marriages on their website.  Yep, nothing to see here folks, just a loving couple planning their future together.  Good job Chase!

                                          Why Not?
by Bernie Sanders                                http://goo.gl/KVMHls

Our job is not to think small. It is to think big.

The United States is the wealthiest nation in the history of the world. Why are we so far behind so many other countries when it comes to meeting the needs of working families and the American middle class?

Why doesn't every American have access to healthcare as a basic right?

Why can't every American who is qualified get a higher education, regardless of family income?

Why can't we have full employment at a decent living wage?

Why must many older Americans be forced to choose between paying for food, shelter, or medical care?

Why can't working parents have access to affordable, high-quality childcare?

We should be asking questions like these every day. We have more billionaires in this country than any other nation on earth. We also have more child poverty than any other major industrialized nation. We have the highest rate of student debt. We have more prisoners, more homeless people and more economic inequality.

It doesn't have to be this way. These conditions are the result of deliberate policy decisions. We provide outrageous tax loopholes for billionaires and large corporations. The top tax rate is less than half of what it was during the postwar economic boom. The real minimum wage has fallen dramatically since the 1960s.

We can make better choices. Let's look at some of the issues that matter most to the American people:

Health Care for All

35 million Americans still lack health insurance. Millions of others are under-insured, with high deductibles and copayments that can make needed medical treatment unaffordable.

We are the only major industrialized country in the world that does not provide universal health care for all its citizens. Medicare is much more cost-effective than private insurers, and could serve as the foundation for a single-payer system like those in Great Britain, Spain, Norway, Italy, Iceland and Portugal. Other countries, including Japan, France, Germany, Canada and Denmark, provide universal coverage without a single-payer system but with better controls on costs and service.

If these countries can provide universal health care, why can't we?

Tuition-Free Public Higher Education

Student debt has reached crisis proportions in this country. 41 million Americans are burdened with student debt. Student debt has surpassed credit card debt and is now the second-largest source of personal indebtedness in this country.

People who graduated in 2014 with student debt owed an average of $30,000 each. That's unsustainable, and unforgivable.

College tuition is free in Germany, even for citizens of other countries. It's also free in Denmark, Norway Sweden, Finland, Ireland, Iceland, and Mexico. If they can do it, why can't we? Why do we accept a situation where hundreds of thousands of qualified people are unable to go to college because their families don't have enough money?

Paid Family Leave

We are the only major nation in the world that doesn't guarantee paid time off for new parents. Of 182 nations that do provide paid leave, more than half guarantee at least 14 weeks off.

In Great Britain, new mothers get 40 weeks of paid leave. 70 percent of countries offer paid leave to new fathers as well. Dads get two weeks of paid leave in Great Britain, Denmark, and Austria.

We are a nation that prides itself on its dedication to family values. Why can't we ensure that new parents have time to bond with their children?

Sick Leave

Even when working Americans face a serious disease like cancer, they have no guarantee of paid sick leave.

The average worker in other developed countries is guaranteed paid sick leave for long-term cancer treatment, for periods that range from 22 days in Canada to 44 days in Germany and 50 days in Norway.

We are the only one of 22 wealthy nations that does not guarantee some type of paid sick leave. When will we join the rest of the world in ensuring that ailing workers can get well without going broke?

Paid Vacation

We are the only advanced economy, and one of only 13 nations in the entire world, that doesn't guarantee workers a paid vacation. Workers in France get an entire month of paid time off every year. Scandinavian workers are guaranteed 25 paid vacation days per year. In Germany the figure is 20 days, and Japan and Canada each guarantee 10 paid vacation days per year.

It's common (although not guaranteed) for higher-paid American workers to get some vacation time. But half of all low-wage workers in this country get no paid time off at all.

Overwork

Americans are overworked in other ways, too. Despite huge increases in productivity over the last 100 years, Americans continue to work some of the longest hours on earth. Vast majorities of working people (85.8 percent of men and 66.5 percent of women) work more than 40 hours per week. Compare that to a country like Norway, where only 23 percent of males and 8 percent of females work more than 40 hours per week.

Every year Americans work 137 hours more than Japanese workers, 260 hours more than British workers, and 499 hours (62.3 days) more than French workers -- despite the fact that productivity has risen 400 percent since 1950!

Other countries are moving in the opposite direction. Spain, Norway, and the Netherlands have all shortened their workweeks to 35 hours. Interestingly, those countries have higher productivity than those with a 40-hour workweek.

We're also spending more years of our life at work. Millions of Americans are delaying retirement -- and, in some cases, working until the day they die. Polls have shown that a third of Americans are afraid they will never be able to retire.

Inequality

We're lagging behind in other areas too, ranging from childcare costs to internet access. We can and must do better. That means addressing the great economic, political, and moral issue of our time: wealth and income inequality. We have more inequality today than at any time since 1928. That is unacceptable.

We must send a simple message to the billionaire class: You can't have it all.

They will argue, of course. So will the politicians who serve them. They will insist that we can't do better, that we can't have the same basic rights as citizens of other countries.

It's time to ask them, and ourselves, a simple but very important question: Why not?

Google hasn't tagged any of my photos as a gorilla.  Perhap those unfortunate people were simply as ugly as a gorilla and the algorithm  became confused.
Google's recently released Photos app proved to be a convenient addition to the Search Giant's application portfolio. Google Photos offers automatic photo syncing, Assistant (Auto Awesome) and even a feature for automatic tagging, which can recognize and group food, things, places, animals and more. This automatic tagging feature is definitely among the most popular additions to the new service, but we now have proof that their recognition techno...

Nooooooooooooooooooooo!  Sadly Disney neglected this attractions for many years so I can't say this is a surprise.  Still, this was the only rainy day attraction in all of Walt Disney World.
Another day, another attraction closing at the Walt Disney World Resort. One day after confirming the closure of the Magic of Disney Animation pavilion at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney World today confirmed that DisneyQuest in Downtown Disney's West Side will close by next year. DisneyQuest ...

This here.... about damn time! 
The Supreme Court's ruling on gay marriage makes it clearer than ever that the government shouldn't be subsidizing religion and non-profits.

I'm going to start a religious institution for alcohol and video games.  My flock will pay tithes for entry and be blessed by booze and Street Fighter arcade cabinets.  Tax free business model.

30 minute waits to check out. The line snakes all the way back to fitting fitting rooms. If you want a pleasurable shopping experience I wouldn't recommend stopping by this location. Especially on the weekends.

Expensive salad with a thin bed of lettuce barely any toppings next to no dressing. I basically paid $10 for a piece of baked chicken. Wouldn't dine here again.

North Carolina does an excellent job presenting their historical history and the museum at Fort Fisher is no exception. However, there is little history left on the site other than some earthworks built by the Confederacy. We were a bit disappointed after visiting Brunswick State Park to see how little history remained.

The tour was extremely interesting. We were allowed to walk through several sets within two of the eight sound stages on property. The tour guides were college students who were more interested in talking about their own theatrical ambitions than the studio itself but it's still worth visiting just to take a peek behind the curtain were movies and television shows are created.

One of the smallest aquariums I have ever visited, but they do a good job of presenting aquatic life with what little square footage they own. This aquarium makes for a terrific rainy day activity if you're staying in the area. However, if you've frequented such attractions in larger cities you may find yourself underwhelmed with their offering here.

An excellent on site museum details the various events that have taken place on the grounds of Brunswick. We spent about an hour walking through the ghost town and the remnants of the Civil War fort. The continuing archaeological work is present and happening out in the open for the public to see.

This location is located directly on the beach, with two restaurants and a beach bar accessible during daylight hours. While you can see the ocean from most rooms the view is skewed as all windows actual face land. There's two pools, one indoor and another outside. The staff here perform well and were exceptionally friendly. The only problem was unruly children crowding the pool area and location up change. We spent $225 per night and the property never lived up to the cost we incurred. This isn't a resort, it's a Double Tree hotel on the beach.
