Terrorism: the most meaningless and manipulated word

Uncategorized
FRIDAY, FEB 19, 2010 07:20 ESTBY GLENN GREENWALDYesterday, Joseph Stack deliberately flew an airplane into a building housing IRS offices in Austin, Texas, in order to advance the political grievances he outlined in a perfectly cogent suicide-manifesto.  Stack's worldview contained elements of the tea party's anti-government anger along with substantial populist complaints generally associated with "the Left" (rage over bailouts, the suffering of America's poor, and the pilfering of the middle class by a corrupt economic elite and their government-servants).  All of that was accompanied by an argument as to why violence was justified (indeed necessary) to protest those injustices:I remember reading about the stock market crash before the "great" depression and how there were wealthy bankers and businessmen jumping out of windows when they realized they screwed up and lost everything. Isn't it ironic how…

US Killing of Innocent Civilians Goes on Apace in Afghanistan

Uncategorized
Holland has had EnoughBy Dave Lindorff (about the author) opednews.com     PermalinkFor OpEdNews: Dave Lindorff - WriterBy Dave LindorffThe civilian death toll in the US media-hyped and much government-touted Battle of Marjah is now up to 21, about a third of them children. But that's only part of this ugly story.While the slaughter goes on in this pointless display of Marine power, civilians have been dying at American hands elsewhere in Afghanistan. On Thursday a US airstrike allegedly targeting "insurgents" ended up hitting and killing seven Afghani policemen. And yesterday, another airstrike, this time on a "convoy" of three vehicles, killed an astonishing 27-33 civilians and injured at least 12 more--and given the vicious nature of American weaponry, it's a fair bet that many of those who were injured will end up…

New Wind Turbine

Uncategorized
The Magenn Power Air Rotor System (MARS) is a patented high altitude lighter-than-air tethered device that rotates about a horizontal axis in response to wind, efficiently generating clean renewable electrical energy at a lower cost than all competing systems. This electrical energy is transferred down the tether to a transformer at a ground station and then transferred to the electricity power grid. Helium (an inert non-reactive lighter than air gas) sustains the Air Rotor which ascends to an altitude for best winds and its rotation also causes the Magnus effect. This provides additional lift, keeps the device stabilized, keeps it positioned within a very controlled and restricted location, and causes it to pull up overhead rather than drift downwind on its tether. All competing conventional wind generators use bladed two-dimensional…
