But that was all good old American 'Freedom Fat'. America is not 43% less 'Mon and Apple Pie' (well, mostly Apple Pie, but still.)

Hillary and Bernie agree on many things, but there are stark differences too #Feelthebern

Have not seen that, thanks +James Salsman​.

One of the goals of CELSS.net is to make the system as much as possible biological. Mechanical things wear out, gaskets and filters have to be replaced. NASA has not been going in the biological direction, because it's not as easy to throw a switch to control, it's not linear, and it's not simple. A motor, you apply voltage/current to it and get out rpm/torque. A plant takes many inputs and has many outputs, same with all organisms, and they all tend to interact in complex ways. Ultimately however, it has to be done biologically to be done sustainably.

The thing that really steams me about this is that they torpedoed the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Could it be that flashy Silicon Valley companies aren't always entirely honest about the return on investment in partnering with them?
Uber and Lyft driver Takele Gobena joined in a press conference at City Hall on Monday to tell his story: After driving 55 hours a week to put himself through school, he brought his earnings, mileage, and hours to an accountant last year for help with his taxes. It turns out his hourly wage came to less than $3 an hour...

I worked at Stanford when Chelsea was an undergraduate. I am still waiting for my Bilderberg and Bohemian Grove invites. But I'm glad to see someone even remotely connected to the establishment who wants to improve conditions in Haiti.

While I haven't decided if I'm on board with Hillary as our next president (I'll vote for her if it comes down to it, but I would personally rather see some choices first), everything I know of Chelsea makes me think she's a truly good person.

Please sign this petition to +Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman and the rest of the +SumOfUs leadership.
I don't see any alternative activism effort, time, or money possibilities with a better likely return on investment at this point.

Let me get back to you on that. I'd like to review the issues, between all the infighting, name calling and misinformation going around, it looks like I'm going to have to start looking closer at what going on...I'd hoped to have more time to consider this crap again. I'm just so sick of the whining that's been going on since the last election.

I have voted in every election since 1974. My most ardent hope for this campaign cycle would be that the citizens of this country that were not planning to vote, get off your lazy butts, put the time in to seen who has the best overall policies.
