"Take politics out of the picture and look at the numbers, Heinrich said, and you get a clearer view of the deal.

“I think the numbers paint a very much more defensible and stable situation than what we’re faced with now,” the senator said.

Listing the benefits of the agreement, Heinrich noted that "you move from having 19,000 centrifuges [today], from Iran having 164 just a few years ago, and you reduce that by two-thirds."

"You take their stockpile," he added, "which has been at 20 percent -- which is very dangerous, easy to enrich to highly enriched, weapons-grade levels -- and you say, we’re going to get this stockpile and we’re going to reduce it down by 98 percent so they don't have enough to actually make a bomb.”

He also pointed out that the deal would reduce the number of nuclear facilities Iran is permittedto operate ... more »

"But it makes little sense to focus on mental health. The United States has a gun homicide rate that is at least a dozen times higher than those of most other industrialized countries. It is 50 times higher than Germany’s, for instance. We don’t have 50 times as many mentally disturbed people as Germany does — but we do have many, many more guns."

He also pointed out that the deal would reduce the number of nuclear facilities Iran is permitted to operate from three to one.

“All of that shows a move in the right direction,” Heinrich continued. “I think there’s a tendency among some of our colleagues who have argued against this from a political standpoint to want to compare the deal with the unicorn deal, the deal that sounds pretty but doesn’t exist in reality. And we don’t have that option. There are risks in a deal and there are much worse risks in not embracing this deal.”___

Well worth reading. Voting is one of the most elemental rights of citizenship and it is both saddening and enraging at what has been done to prevent people from exercising this basic right.

"In the two years after Bush signed the bill into law, the number of gun-related homicides in Florida increased by more than 200, and the gun homicide rate jumped above the national average, where it has remained ever since. This included at least one case where a drug dealer involved in a shootout was found to be innocent after he claimed self-defense. In other words, stand your ground has unleashed scenarios that we have not seen since the days of the Wild West.

The racial implications are even more jarring. A study of nearly 200 stand your ground cases in Florida found that homicide defendants who hid behind the law were 24 percent more likely to avoid conviction if they had killed a black victim than if they had killed a white victim.

"Another top Republican aide, who asked for anonymity, complained of the conservative media: "There's no money, ratings or clicks in everyone going along to get along." Calmes added, "Asked whether he could offer examples of legislative outcomes affected by conservative media, this Republican all but snapped, 'Sure. All of 'em.' Does he worry more broadly then about the small-d democratic process? 'Yeah, absolutely. Because the loudest voices drown out the sensible ones and there's no real space to have serious discussions.'""

Great job people now on to the next stretch goal
+Smithsonian reached the $500k needed to preserve Neil's Moonwalking suit.

 For their next goal, they are headed from $500,000 to $700,000 to tell the story of the first American in space, Alan Shepard. they plan to conserve, digitize, and display the Mercury suit Shepard wore during the first American manned space flight in 1961. Along with Armstrong’s suit, Shepard’s -- and many other suits planned for display in the new gallery – will show the progression of spacesuit technology during the space race era.

User satisfaction with Google+ is higher than Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr or LinkedIn.

But it's not as high as Pinterest, Wikipedia, YouTube or Instagram. This is according to a new report from the American Customer Satisfaction Index.

The biggest surprise was that Facebook satisfaction has risen from the bottom, and is now almost as high as Google+.

The role of LexisNexis, in the lawsuit filed by Georgia claiming copyright on its statutes
"Carl Malamud, proprietor of Public.Resource.org, was sued last week by the State of Georgia for copyright infringement. Malamud is perhaps the leading advocate in the world for putting primary legal materials — statutes, case law, dockets, etc — on the internet. He’s also the leading advocate for making those same legal materials part of the public domain under copyright law, so they can be freely copied and distributed."

// A Florida police officer tosses peanuts at a homeless man and reportedly talks to him like a dog in a silent booking video from the Sarasota County jail released on Monday. The officer, Andrew Halpin, also points and laughs with several sheriff’s deputies as the handcuffed man with one foot shoeless and the other in a boot then eats the nuts off the floor, according to the footage exposed through a public records request by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune. Halpin had been giving the man, Randy Miller, a series of “dog commands,” a person familiar with the incident told the newspaper. //
