Dutch Engineer Flaps Wings & Flies for 60 Seconds

If God had meant for man to fly, He’d’ve given them aeronautical engineers–and dreamers.

This is amazing.  It’s only 60 seconds long, but it could be every bit as significant as the Wright brothers first flight at Kitty Hawk.

What man can dream, hmm?

P.S.  Oops.  I’ve had several comments that indicate this video has been admitted to be a hoax.

Damn.  Fooled me.

Well, if the saying “What man can dream, man can do” isn’t true (in this instance), then it’s at least true that “What man can dream, man can photoshop” (or something like it).

Currency Wars: The Final Battle?

The Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) describes itself as, “a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 9,000 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 209 countries trust us every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages.”

SWIFT is the backbone of global free trade.  By means of SWIFT, businessmen in virtually any country can digitally buy or sell products to other businesses anywhere else on the globe.  Without access to SWIFT, global trade would be slow, uncertain and difficult.

The US gov-co has recently ordered Iranian banks be denied access to SWIFT until the Iranian government agrees to meet US demands concerning Iranian nuclear weapons.  Nations such as India (which are buying crude oil from Iran) are also threatened with restricted access to SWIFT unless they stop purchasing Iranian crude.

According to Bloomberg (“U.S. Wants Iran Oil Buyers to Pledge Cuts or Risk Sanctions”),

 

“If a country doesn’t prove it’s making the necessary reductions [in the purchase of Iranian crude oil] by the end of June, any institution in that nation that settles petroleum trades through Iran’s central bank will be cut off from the U.S. banking system.”

And conversely, the US banking system (and US dollar) will be “cut off” from any nation that continues to trade with Iran.

The question is:  Who needs who?

Ron Paul’s Stolen Election

No Republican candidate draws a crowd like Ron Paul.

No Republican candidate inspires as much supporter loyalty as Ron Paul.

No Republican candidate is supported by as many grass roots activists as Ron Paul.

And yet, Ron Paul appears to be defeated time after time in the primary elections.

Here’s a video that makes offers a compelling explanation for Ron Paul’s seemingly inexplicable defeats: election fraud.

Senator Harry Reid Insists the Income Tax is Voluntary (But also Mandatory)

The video below is interesting since Senator Harry Reid insists that “our income tax system is a voluntary system” but also that you must pay your income taxes.  The interviewer tries to force Sen. Reid to admit that: 1) our income tax system is voluntary and we don’t have to volunteer, or 2) we must pay income taxes and thus the system is not voluntary.  The interviewer’s inability to make Senator Reid that either the income tax is–or is not–voluntary is kinda funny.  The interviewer’s frustration is almost like an old Abbot and Costello comedy routine about “Who’s On First”.

Senator Reid sounds like an idiot as he tries to maintain his position that our income tax system both is–and is not–“voluntary”.

But you should bear in mind that Harry Reid is a U.S. Senator, and while he’s getting on in years, maybe he’s not the fool he appears to be in this interview.  You can bet that Sen. Reid is masterful in his use of language.  Maybe he knows something that the interviewer doesn’t know or even suspect.  Maybe the income tax both is, and is not, voluntary.  Maybe, as President Clinton once remarked, “it all depends on what the meaning of ‘is’ is.”

I think Senator Reid may right: the income tax is both voluntary–and involuntary.

How could such ambiguity and contradiction be possible?  It all depends on the place or venue where the income tax is being considered.

Ignorance of the Law is No Excuse Part II: Creating Evidence


Notice

Notice (Photo credit: Squirmelia)

A couple of days ago, I posted Ignorance of the Law is No Excuse–EXCEPT When . . . . That article explored a Texas court case concerning the maxim “ignorance of the law is no excuse in the eyes of the law”.  Under that principle, a defendant can’t claim that he’s not subject to a law simply because he didn’t know about that law.  However, while his ignorance won’t protect him at law, if anyone with superior knowledge tries to take advantage of his ignorance, that person may be liable for deceit, misrepresentation and fraud in equity.

In essence, your ignorance is bad, but someone else’s attempt to exploit your ignorance is worse.

Therefore, if you can establish that: 1) out of ignorance, you relied on someone else’s “fairness and honesty” to decide your course of action; and 2) that person had betrayed your trust by advising you to act in a way that was contrary to your own rights and interests; then 3) that person’s lawsuit or prosecution against you might be stopped for fraud.

“We Love You–Iran and Israel!”

Public support is vital to all governments.  Governments presume to control public sentiment.

For example, in order to invade Iraq in A.D. 2003, the gov-co first had to convince Americans that the “evil” Iraqis had the dreaded “Weapons of Mass Destruction” (WMDs).  There were no such WMDs, of course, but that didn’t matter.  Once Whee Duh Pee-Pul, had been persuaded that the fictional WMDs actually existed, we supported a war in Iraq that lasted for over eight years.

Today, our government is on the verge of attacking Iran.  Why?  Because Iran has (or could soon have) Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction (NWMDs).  Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta admitted in January that Iran doesn’t have nuclear weapons and doesn’t have any plans to acquire NWMDs–but, again, that doesn’t matter.  Once Whee Duh Pee-Pul have been persuaded that “evil” Iran may soon have fictional NWMDs, we will presumably support another war, attack, invasion . . . something . . . against Iran.

My point is that our gov-co needs popular support to initiate and sustain a war.  Therefore, our gov-co will go to considerable lengths to secure, manufacture or manipulate popular support before and during any proposed war.
