A VPN is a virtual private network. Basically what it is, is a middleman between you and the internet. Everything that passes between you and the VPN is encrypted so it is very very hard to spy or insert malicious data. Then the VPN actually contacts the sites you are browsing using their own IP address. The Main effects are that no sites can tell who you are, no more targeted ads, and data that can be linked to you is encrypted. It is very useful when using public wifi networks.
When my fingers fell unabashed upon ivory,
setting plaited air to weave and leave these porous walls,
to fill the streets with the raw blood of a swearing heart
it became ok...
It became ok to forget fame,
to recognize my calling absent the game,
and it became ok to remember that sparked moment:
a stage less black than the quiet beast,
poised and beckoning my immature hands.
Peace and Love always.
My theory is that Smudge Pot is not just an ordinary member of DP or participant in the chat room, but something more complex and fundamental to the functioning of the DP ecosystem.
Just as the federal reserve is on call to supply a reserve of money when the velocity of money declines, Smudge is "elastic" in just the same way. Like the federal reserve note supply, he stretches himself as much as needed to maintain the stability of DP chat and the G-DP.
Suddenly, even though I have heard of the concept before, a “declaration of interdependence” seems like a really perfect way to create a basis for a discussion of what kind of changes need to happen on our little planet. You see, in our new, globalized, and centralized world, there is clearly more to talk about than just individual freedom. That does NOT mean that individual freedom is not the most important core principle. It surely is.

The race for Washington 4th Congressional District is getting interesting...
Gavin Seim, A 29 year old Congressional candidate from Washington’s 4th district officially announced his campaign against congressman Doc Hastings in December of 2013 to openly challenge the 10-term incumbent's unconstitutional voting record and for a bigger Federal government.
The Wind Rises is Hayao Miyazaki's latest, and possibly last full length animated film. It is a fictionalized story of the life of Jiro Horikoshi, the designer and engineer of the Mitsubishi Zero, the plane that Japanese Kamikaze pilots flew to their deaths. It is a deeply moving and tragic film.
In the movie, Jiro is portrayed as a dreamer, primarily interested in using the latest technology of his day - aviation technology - to make something beautiful that the world had never seen before. His aim was not to make weapons of war, but that is ultimately what ended up happening.
I saw the film yesterday and cried and cried and cried. Jiro had such a drive to create these machines. He was enthralled by their beauty and potential. But ultimately he had no control over how they would be used.
I am reminded of the film this morning by an article about a Carnegie Mellon professor of robotics Illah Nourbakhsh. Professor Nourbakhsh does not accept defense funding. Like Jiro, he wants to use cutting edge technology for good.
“The reason we don’t take defense funding, is we want to build robots and robot technologies that we want people to use,” he said. “We don’t want to spend all our time building a really advanced interesting killing machine that we hope nobody ever has to use.”
In eastern thought, "The Wind Rises" can be roughly translated as "The winds of change are upon us."
Singer-songwriter, Jordan Page will be holding a Liberty Concert on March 22nd, 2014 in support of the Jefferson Republic's ballot initiative scheduled for a vote this June in Siskiyou County. If the initiative passes, the county will secede not merely to form the 51st state, which would subsequently require permission from the California legislature and federal government, but an entirely sovereign republic.

Arizona's 'Right to Discriminate' Bill
What liberals don't understand is that when you make laws for your own agenda, such as gays getting married and the war against personal firearms, you infringe on the rights of other people. You know the people who created this country...under God.
Every couple of weeks through May I'll update this presentation to show you how an Adwords campaign I started for Derrick Grayson is doing.

If I posed the question - Are you willing to fight for liberty? - most would respond without pause - "Yes" - with the knowledge that death is a probable consequence - aka the ultimate sacrifice. This would suggest seriousness regarding freedom.
However, what if I asked a question where an affirmative answer did not include the immediate possibility of death? What if I asked the question - Are you willing to quit paying taxes?
