Python (.py) files are text - so any text-editor should be able to open and print them ...setting up printing in general is a possibly a longer story.

If you read the card in a Windows PC or in a Mac, you will only see the first (boot) partition - the second (data) partition is in a Linux format and is not visible.

I think because I use a thumb drive that is formatted on windows I am not having this issue. I would move the python program to a windows formatted drive and then open it in windows and open it with word-pad or word.

Exactly - that is one good way to move data between RPi and Windows.

Of course if both RPI and the Win box are in the same network, one could use SCP (WinSCP on Win box) or install Samba to access Windows shared drives and printers from RPi...
