    Way to go, Jacqueline! Boehner has really painted himself into a corner on the funding for the Department of Homeland Security.

    “The new generation of “maker” tools like 3-D printers and milling machines promises to let anyone make virtually anything—from prosthetic limbs to firearms—in the privacy and convenience of his or her own home. But first, those tools have to get to customers’ homes. That’s going to be difficult for at least one new machine with the potential to make homemade firearms, because FedEx is refusing to deliver it…..

    …Last week FedEx (& now UPS) told firearm-access nonprofit Defense Distributed that the company refuses to ship the group’s new tool, a computer controlled (CNC) mill known as the Ghost Gunner. Defense Distributed has marketed its one-foot-cubed $1,500 machine, which allows anyone to automatically carve aluminum objects from digital designs, as an affordable, private way to make an AR-15 rifle body without a serial number. Add in off-the-shelf parts that can be ordered online, and the Ghost Gunner would allow anyone to create one of the DIY, untraceable, semi-automatic firearms sometimes known as “ghost guns.” ….continued

      I hate to be the pedantic history buff, but one of the charges against Thomas Jefferson was that he was an atheist.

        LL, most of them were Free Masons. Including George Washington.
        I grew up to believe that it is a “secret society”, a cult.
        We all know where that came from…….King Solomon from the Bible.
        Amazing how they have hidden things in Washington, D.C. in an effort to replicate the Temple of Solomon.

        By the way, I just loved your piece that was posted a while back.
        I felt your frustration as I read each word. I often wondered how a person would feel who choses “to pass”.
        I have a different view than I had when I was younger.
        Thank you for waking up those emotions and feelings that I thought were long suppressed.
        I can ask for forgiveness. Forgive myself. And move on.

    Is Weibo on the way out?

    China’s internet watchdogs have threatened to enforce real-name registration before. But this time, they’re adamant all Chinese citizens must provide their real names and identification numbers before using social media sites starting on 1 March.

    Nicknames can be used on the sites, but only after users hand over their personal details to the government.

    The new rule will stifle one of the few venues for free speech in China, many fear. Specifically, real-name registration could hasten the slow death of Weibo, China’s version of Twitter.

    Once the only place to find vibrant sources of debate on the Chinese internet, Weibo is quickly losing momentum.

    Fifty-six million people in China stopped using Weibo accounts last year, according to China’s state internet regulator, registering a drop from 331 million accounts to 275 million accounts. Several internet companies operate Weibo services in China, though all function in a similar manner.

    Those with Weibo accounts don’t seem to be using them very much. Ninety-four per cent of the messages on Weibo are generated by just 5% of its users, or 10 million people, according to one study published last April by the University of Hong Kong’s Journalism and Media Studies Centre. The same study found that almost 60% of accounts had never posted a message.

    I remember all the hype about weibo just a year back.

    Cyprus has signed an agreement with Moscow to give Russian navy ships access to Cypriot ports.

    Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed the deal after talks with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.

    The deal with Cyprus comes as tensions with the West over the Ukrainian conflict continue.

    President Putin said that other countries should not be concerned and that the port’s main use would be for counter terrorism and anti piracy.

    Russia has heavily invested in Cyprus and this deal formalises previously ad hoc use of Cypriot ports.

    President Anastasiades also revealed that the two countries were discussing the possibility of Russia using an air base on Cyprus for humanitarian relief missions.

      President Obama took NO Shit from Fox-like Jose.
      Ping pong—NO. Democrats are always on the side of immigration.
      Both sides play same game according to Jose. NO. FY

      The audience was not as warm as I would have liked to see. Many seemed to resonate the disatisfaction and anger coming from the PO Jose.
