If 19 Arabs armed with Box cutters could defeat the Biggest Bestest Most Baddest Military

in the history of the world-

then why has the Military Industrial Complex bilked the citizens for over half a billion dollars for years?

Phillip Marshall said this, before he ended up with a bullet in his head:

“Think about this,” Marshall said last year in a written statement, “The official version about some ghost (Osama bin Laden) in some cave on the other side of the world defeating our entire military establishment on U.S. soil is absolutely preposterous.”



19 guys armed with box cutters defeated the Most Powerful Military That Ever Existed In All Of Time? How embarrassing for the USSR.

If 19 guys can bring down the entire US Military defenses- We've been ripped off

and no one was fired? Really?

RUN FROM THE CURE: The Rick Simpson Story - A Film by Christian Laurette
Does THC kill Cancer cells? Harvard says so

THC that targets cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2 is similar in function to endocannabinoids, which are cannabinoids that are naturally produced in the body and activate these receptors. The researchers suggest that THC or other designer agents that activate these receptors might be used in a targeted fashion to treat lung cancer.

So if what if you could grow a cure for cancer?

Feds To Grant Exclusive Cannabinoid License To Pharma Firm

The U.S. federal government's Department of Health and Human Services seems about ready to award exclusive rights to apply marijuana as a medical therapeutic. You read that correctly: "exclusive rights."

Now, I don't think of myself as a conspiracy theorist. But when the federal government keeps taking actions that, even when considered separately but especially when viewed together, all seem to be part of a bigger plan to pave the way for the pharmaceutical industry to bulldoze the cottage medical marijuana industry, I start getting antsy.

"We find it hypocritical and incredible that on the one hand, the U.S. Department of Justice is persecuting cannabis patient associations, asserting that the federal government regards marijuana as having absolutely no medical value, despite overwhelming clinical evidence," said Union of Medical Marijuana Patients director James Shaw. "On the other hand, the Department of Health and Human Services is planning to grant patent rights with possible worldwide application to develop medicine based on cannabis."

"Though UMMP welcomes any potential new research that could come from KannaLife Sciences' federal endorsement, it is highly disconcerting that the contemplated grant is an exclusive one," the organization posted on its website.

Here's a smart attorney that gets it:

Oakland cites surprise medical pot backer
http://www.sfgate.com/default/article/Oakland-cites-surprise-medical-pot-backer-4113767.php

Cedric Chao, a lawyer for the city, cited a 2003 patent application by the U.S. government that said cannabis compounds are "useful in the treatment and prophylaxis (prevention) of a wide variety of oxidation-associated diseases," including certain types of strokes and immune-system disorders.

Chao quoted another patent application, by two government scientists in 2009, that referred to the "healing properties of Cannabis sativa," or marijuana, that have been "known throughout documented history."

"How can the government credibly deny the benefits of medical cannabis when the government itself is funding cutting-edge research proving the medical benefits of cannabis and seeking patents based on such research?" Chao wrote.

U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag filed suit in July seeking the closure of Harborside and the forfeiture of its offices at 1840 Embarcadero. She said the dispensary, which supplies marijuana to 108,000 patients, is violating federal drug laws.

Pot patent

winner of first use of pot patent: Kannalife

Guess you have to be an attorney to get how despicable this is

Meanwhile, the joke is on the American People. The Feds, under both D and R regimes, have managed to patent the main ingredient in pot, while spewing lie after lie about how it's not medicine.

Shame on the American People for not paying more attention.

Ladies and gentlemen... I give you $1 trillion dollars...

Notice those pallets are double stacked.
...and remember those are $100 bills.

So the next time you hear someone toss around the phrase "trillion dollars"... that's what they're talking about.

shame

If some of this money

http://costofwar.com

had been spent on battery tech we would have better batteries

There are ways to store solar heat too:

Solar Two used molten salt, a combination of 60% sodium nitrate and 40% potassium nitrate, as an energy storage medium instead of oil or water as with Solar One. This helped in energy storage during brief interruptions in sunlight due to clouds. The molten salt also allowed the energy to be stored in large tanks for future use such as night time—Solar Two had sufficient capacity to continue running for up to three hours after the sun had set.

If some of the http://costofwar.com money had been spent on heat storage we could have better efficiency there too.

But we've got terriers to kill.

and more drones to build, cause there's gonna be 30,000 of them in our skies.

Solar or Drones, serf, which do you prefer?

The US has spent the last ~10 years perfecting this technology:



and building these:

Camp Bondsteel, Kosovo

While Germany has been perfecting this:



Aren't we all proud?

Wow, apparently Germany just finished a new one: Solarpark Neuhardenberg and it's a DUzy





Neuhardenberg Solar Park is a 145 MW photovoltaic, and Europe's largest solar power station, located at the former Neuhardenberg military airport- Hey we've got lots of those!

Imagine if they had shown pictures of Germany's biggest solar parks


Solarpark Finsterwalde


Solarpark Bruck Edit-Add--yeah that's not very big so here's Kothen:


Solarpark Kothen


Solarpark Liberose

Solar power in Germany
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solar_power_in_Germany

Germany is one of the world's top photovoltaics (PV) installers, with a solar PV capacity as of 2011 of almost 25 gigawatts (GW). As of 31st of October 2012, there were 31.62 GW of photovoltaics connected to the electrical power network. The German solar PV industry increased to about 7.6 GW in 2012, and solar PV provided 18 TWh (billion kilowatt-hours) of electricity in 2011, about 3% of total electricity. Some market analysts expect this could reach 25 percent by 2050. Germany has a goal of producing 35% of electricity from renewable sources by 2020 and 100% by 2050.

A feed-in tariff is the most effective means of developing solar power. It is the same as a power purchase agreement, but is at a much higher rate. As the industry matures, it is reduced and becomes the same as a power purchase agreement. A feed-in tariff allows investors a guaranteed return on investment - a requirement for development. A primary difference between a tax credit and a feed-in tariff is that the cost is born the year of installation with a tax credit, and is spread out over many years with a feed-in tariff. In both cases the incentive cost is distributed over all consumers. This means that the initial cost is very low for a feed-in tariff and very high for a tax credit. In both cases the learning curve reduces the cost of installation, but is not a large contribution to growth, as grid parity is still always reached.

Will Obama keep his promise to put Solar on the White House in his second term?

The US could be energy independent, if we wanted to. But the "leaders" do not want. It's that simple. The question is why.

That Germany leads the US in Solar is a major embarrassment. Shame on US.

And why didn't Clinton do anything at all, during the boom years?

Edit: Add- Hudson bay latitude: 60N
Berlin: 52N
Berlin is about 560 miles south of Hudson Bay (a whole 'nother climate)
Washington State:49N

David Cramer: Another example of American Exceptionalism

That this tool isn't embarrassed for calling for examining children's urine for "drugs" while real serious DRUGS are prescribed like M and M's to everyone they can sucker is a prime example.

It's insanity on display. Yet so many go along, the insanity starts to replace reality.

And here we are.

How many school shooters have been on "drugs" like Cannabis?

And how many have been on real drugs like Prozac and Luvox?

There is a reason this link is being ignored by "officials" and the media. What is it?
