Since upgrading Debian to Jessie, I can stream Netflix videos in Chrome Browser fine, but I cannot stream Amazon videos.  I get no error messages and it looks like it is going to stream (the swirl turns), but at the moment where I should see a video, the viewing area stays black.  Any ideas?

When will enough be enough?  When will there be an admission of the real threat to civilization and when will we mount a real coordinated effort to stop the jihadi bastards?
An Islamist preacher from Kuwait has called to destroy Egypt's Sphinx and pyramids, stating it is time for Muslims to erase the pharaohs' heritage.

We saw the movie Interstellar yesterday.  It was a GREAT! movie - on the same level as 2001.

Interstellar is very good. I really liked it but it is not quite a classic film like 2001 - A Space Odyssey!

Here is the reason that we need voter ID laws in all states and we need to purge all voter rolls of those who are not qualified to vote.  This is nothing less than an attempt to takeover our country.
The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

This is great news.  I cannot imagine who would  be a more appropriate leader of the Democratic Party.
"I will serve as DNC chair till Jan. 21, 2017,” Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz said.

Who would you like to see as the Republican nominee in the 2016 presidential election?

I just did. Thanks for posting it.

We need to get a true conservative on the ballot. No establishment RINO is capable of beating Hitlery -- not with the liberal media easily cutting them all down. A true grassroots conservative will have a platform so genuine, so simple, so bona fide American that the press commies won't be able to warp it.

I saw several good conservatives on that straw poll, and several undesirable "democrat lite" unwanteds.

I'm new so please endure my simple question:  now that jessie has been frozen will wheezy continue to be updated?  I am specifically interested in seeing an update to libnss3 so that Netflix will play on debian.  Thanks

- changing the source to a newer branch ends mostly at the prompt.
- the next problem is that some old packages are installed
- old kernel modules
the best way is to backup the private data and start a reinstall with the dvd or cdrom.
- Format all drives with the setup disk manager or erase the whole disk with new partitions.
- restore your private data.

I loved the sound track too - the cinema I was in vibrated when the rockets took off.

Here is an example of the Democrats' proven marketing technique:  tell any lie no matter how outrageous or ridiculous with enough conviction and people will believe it; then expand the base of believers by repeating the lie over and over again.
Appearing at a Boston rally for Democrat gubernatorial candidate Martha Coakley on Friday, Hillary Clinton told the crowd gathered at the Park Plaza Hotel not to listen to anybody who says that “businesses create jobs.”

If only we could find truthful people to run for office, I believe I would vote for almost anyone if they were truthful.  At least I would know what to expect.

Netflix still does not support Linux.  I for one would probably switch entirely to Linux except for the lack of Netflix support.  I just signed a petition online to ask Netflix to extend support to Linux.  Please join me:  
To: Netflix, Inc. We, the undersigned, are current or prospective subscribers of Netflix that would like the "Watch Now" feature available to Linux users. Linux users are part of a new trend in OS use around the world. Interoperability with Linux will be very much appreciated and beneficial to ...

You can always go on xbmchub.org to find a tutorials on how to install fussion repo and how to install 1channel app.
Actually xbmchub.org now redirects to http://www.tvaddons.ag/ because guys that develop decided to change XBMC name to Kody, because of name usage problems. Xbmc was originally developed as Xbox Media Center and Microsoft was putting pressure on them to change the name.
Anyway as you can read on http://www.tvaddons.ag/ Xbmc or Kody is the future of television, very extensible media center system.
If you run on problem with setting up or installing you can ask in Xbmc Google+ community or on forums on http://forums.tvaddons.ag/ or you can ask me. If I know how to solve it I'll help you.

The food and service were surprisingly good. I had grilled tuna. It was a large portion on a bed of rice; done perfectly - slightly rare, and spiced just right. I cannot remember having better.

We cannot recommend Rincon highly enough. Food is authentic Cuban and very tasty. Portions are large enough that we always take some home. Cost is very inexpensive. The service is more than friendly - we have always been treated like family even though we are not Cuban.
