My family greatly benefits from Obamacare, I work full time, but being able to get my wife the medical care she needs was just out of reach. The Medicare expansion(OHP in Oregon) here was made possible by grants from Obamacare, without it we would have continued to wait in the adult lottery for access to OHP. 

I may not agree with the entire program, or with this President on much, but I do greatly appreciate what Obamacare has done for my family. The law should not be repealed and replaced, it should be amended and made more efficient.

One can only imagine the trillions of dollars our nation could have made in profit over the last 50 years if we had reversed defense and NASA/science funding.

I recently started making my own juices for vaping. After a week now I must say, I wish I had done this sooner. So much cheaper and tastier than most Brick and Mortar juices. 

If you vape, even if you are just using a travel EGO pen, you should be making your own juice. Its so easy a caveman could do it. 

Don't be scared to start, check out redd.it.com/r/diy_ejuice for great primers on how to get started, who to buy from, and how to guides with video and step by step instruction.(see sidebar on reddit)

This is what globalization looks like, Chinese company, Chinese customers, listed on American Stock exchange. We may have lost millions of jobs, and the corresponding billions of dollars in Tax revenue, but parts of our society have gained tremendously(hint the tax code needs to reflect a global marketplace,not just a series of national ones, to smooth out the gains).
Anyone invested in any of the brokerage firms that got shares, or are invested in the indecies themselves, will benefit from this IPO. Even despite our insane tax code the Federal government and the State of NY will benefit tremendously from this IPO.

Bittersweet pills in this months job report, we have just barely surpassed where we were six years ago. Half a decade of growth lost and more to probably come with the actual labor market remaining fragile and weak. 

 Average hourly earnings grew by a single penny in July (to $24.45), and have grown just 2 percent over the past 12 months. This suggests that even though unemployment is coming down, the labor market is still weak. Theoretically, if there was healthy competition in the job market, companies would be offering higher wages, and we aren’t seeing that yet. 

For me personally this part rang particularly true, I am today making just a lil over 5% more than what I was making back in 2008.

If this pans out it could be the beginning of a huge explosion in intra-solar exploration. A constant impulse engine that requires little to no fuel would open up most of the solar system to human exploration in the same way that improvements in hull technology opened up the "new world" to the Europeans. 

Weeks to Mars a month or so to Jupiter and the asteroid belt means that vast quantities of valuable minerals without any of the environmental concerns or legal issues surrounding ownership suddenly become available.

Not only does the free thirty day trial give access to a huge selection of "free" books, it also comes with a free 90 day "trial"(or renewal if you aren't currently active) to Audible. 

While you don't get to keep the ebooks if you stop paying, but the audible books you get to keep forever. Totally worth doing the free trial.

More SCOTUS News:
Buffer Zones around Abortion Clinics violate the 1st amendment http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/12-1168_6k47.pdf

The recess appointment of 3 members to the NLRB was invalid because 3 days is an insufficient break in session for the President to act under the recess appointment clause. It appears that the minimum, baring exigent circumstances, is 10 days. http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/12-1281_bodg.pdf

On the recess appointment case I predict that from here on out the Senate, when not of the same party as the President, will never break for more than 3 days.

From the SCOTUS opinions today: 

Aereo is no different than a traditional cable company and as such must pay licensing fees. (6-3 ruling) http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/13-461_l537.pdf

Cell-phones cannot be searched without a warrant during an arrest except when there are exigent circumstances, like a missing child or bombs exploding. (Unanimous ruling with Alito concurring in part and on judgement) http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/13-132_8l9c.pdf

The third case was about Employee Stock ownership plans : Court held that fiduciaries are held to a prudence standard, but that does not necessarily mean that they have to diversify. (this case is so far outside of my knowledge base that I struggled to understand exactly what it all meant) http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/13pdf/12-751_d18e.pdf

Looks like you were wrong on this one , +Leo Laporte , I was with you to be honest I thought it wasn't going to happen either. That being said I find it interesting that the Reuters article covering the announcement focused/headlined Iovine over Dre. Makes me wonder if that was part of the "new deal", like Apple said "We'll buy you, but we aren't pleased with Dre over leaking it.."

This is what regulatory capture looks like folks - just like our Healthcare system is the worst and most expensive in the Industrialized world, on average, so too will our internet infrastructure/service. We are already paying more for less than any other industrialized nation, I can only imagine how this will get worse.

Still it is great news and I look forward to more courts striking down bans on marriage equality.

This is what we do, those of us who spend "too much time" on the internet discussing and debating.

I get home from work and browse the interwebs looking for discussions and debates on a variety of issues.

The beauty of all of these discussions happening online is that it is quite similar to what happened during the Renaissance. The debates among wealthy aristocrats and their progeny at coffee houses in London and Salons in France are where the ideas that our very civilizations are predicated on today came from.

With more people than ever thinking, debating, and discussing deep philosophical questions who knows what new modes of living or thinking will emerge.

With more people than ever thinking, debating, and discussing deep philosophical questions who knows what new modes of living or thinking will emerge. 

The web we have created has facilitated much more than just facile memes, kitten photos, porn, and flame wars. It has enabled, for the first time in human history, the the widespread dissemination of information and provided a platform for any and all to build upon to hawk their ideas, services, wares, and yes even what they had for dinner last night. 

It has done this, in much the same way as Coffee houses and Salons, by providing equal footing for participants. Just like many of the ideas that were bandied about at those Coffee houses were forgotten, so too will much of the "frivolous" content that we all generate daily. But the good stuff, the truly revolutionary ideas will froth up and change society. 

Because the thing is, no one knows that the next big idea will be. And if no one truly knows, then there is no ideal way to plan or drive towards it. 

 That all depends on neutrality though, which is under threat by lack of action by the FCC, who has refused to regulate ISPs as telecommunication services. 

If we can maintain an equal footing among content creators and users alike we will look back at this time, turbulent as it is, as the "Enlightenment of the Commoner". Imagine what kind of world we could leave to our descendants if ours was the time that spawned their great thinkers. 

Just as there was a push to electrify the whole nation, and not just those who could afford it(we used to believe in Enlightened Self-interest), there needs to be a push to network the whole nation. The more people who connect, the more discussions there can be. The more discussions there are, the more likely a revolutionary idea or way of thinking is to be found.

When we aren't active in our governments, other interests fill the void. Be heard by your government by participating in it beyond just voting once every four years.

Call, text, tweet, snail-mail or email your members of congress, go to your local city councils, stay in contact with your State legislators too, and always comment during open comments on federal regulations. Money may have power, but voices have just as much when spoken in unison.

The FCC has opened up the comment period on their plan to create a "fast lane" on the internet. Whether you support that or not you should let the FCC know.

While some of the gestures were crude, I can imagine this being a very good way to incorporate gestures for desktop pcs in a non-gimmicky way. 

I would imagine though that for anyone doing image/video editing or anything else that required precision movements the good ole fashion mouse would still be superior. 

But for chilling on the couch it would be nice if I didn't have to use a mouse. 

A Motion-Sensing, Gesture-Controlled Mechanical Keyboard

This keyboard can sense "motion gestures performed both on and directly above the device" using infrared sensors interspersed with the keys of a regular keyboard. I want one! Much better than holding up your arms awkwardly to use other motion-sensing tech like that Leap Motion thing.

Senate starts debate today on a minimum wage increase. Should the minimum wage be be raised to account for inflation?

Given that the minimum wage is far below what it was, in purchasing power terms, in the 70s, and given that productivity of workers is at all time highs, it only seems fair that the minimum wage should be a wage that, if worked full time, guarantees that one won't be below the poverty line.

My family greatly benefits from Obamacare, I work full time, but being able to get my wife the medical care she needs was just out of reach. The Medicare expansion(OHP in Oregon) here was made possible by grants from Obamacare, without it we would have continued to wait in the adult lottery for access to OHP. 

I may not agree with the entire program, or with this President on much, but I do greatly appreciate what Obamacare has done for my family. The law should not be repealed and replaced, it should be amended and made more efficient.

I can't wait to play this game....this looks like a really solid platformer, plus it is supposed to also have a turn based strategy component where you expand the Aztec empire with the goal of getting large/strong enough to survive the Spanish invasion. 

here is a link to another awesome video where someone playing the demo really shows how awesome the combat will be.  http://www.twitch.tv/seerlekon/c/3674536
