    Having been in the thick of it in 67 – 68 TeT offensive in Nam , I saw some pretty impressive air strikes . I am not impressed with this video one bit . In Obamas own words , its a pin ***** in what should be a massive offensive , to put an end to ISIS once and for all . You need troops to move them into the open , and air strikes to take them out , push them all the way to the sea and finish them .

    So we pay our military about $1.50 an hour more than the Federal Minimum wage , and since our military is paid a fixed amount monthly , hours dont count . When fast food workers are willing to live in the war zone and take a bullet for the country his or her family lives in , then I will consider paying them equal pay to the military , who has always been grossly underpaid , with little to no complaints .

    This a very cool breakthrough in optics , unfortunately it works backwards from what practical applications need . You have to look through the lens to make the object disappear , so if you are a soldier looking to disappear the enemy would need to look through the lens . In reality you need to blend into the background to anyone looking at you using normal vision , which has already been done .

    1973 Movie Soylent Green
    In the year 2022, overpopulation and the greenhouse effect have made life extremely difficult for the majority of people. The rich live in separated luxury apartments (with women as part of the rented furniture) but also experience the lack of natural food. Strawberries are at $150 for a glass of them. The population of New York City is 40 million and the constant heat is unbearable. The city’s infrastructure has broken down. Water is rationed and fresh food is virtually non-existent. Rather, most of the population live on soylent green, made from ocean vegetation and formed into tasteless green wafers.

    It was a food substitute , green and kind of looked like a thick cracker , or patty . You most certainly could be correct , my memory isnt what it used to be , you know like last in line at the Soylent Green factory .

    For those old enough , Soilent Green the movie comes to mind . I am pretty sure that took place in the UK . Along with Clockwork Orange , also in the UK , seems like they are always on the cutting edge of depravity !

    Look we all know in more recent history , Bush Sr., Clinton , Bush Jr., and Obama are all Progressives and all instrumental in the destruction of our Constitution , and implementation of one world government . Bush Jr. may have been a little ,more Patriotic and concerned with the legalities of it all , but he was a progressive just the same . Where Bush Jr spent huge amounts of man hours trying to make his policies at least look legal , Obama has just plain chose to ignore the law all together .

    This crisis is years of Progressive mismanagement , when I was younger California was not the farming capital of the country . All through the middle of the country were private farms and necessary irrigation was spread across the country , not in one state. Over the years the Progressive government agencies has forced all of the small farms out of business across the country with regulations and taxes . The farms in California are huge massive Corporate farms owned by Progressives , who exchange election funding for favorable legislation . This gives them control of a large portion of our food supply . Couple that with Progressive owned Monsanto , and policies controlling the farmers seeds and you have a disaster in the making. Also only a Progressive government particularly California , would allow 80% of its water supply to be used for irrigation and only 20% for its citizens . This government corruption is really embarrassing , and those farms and politicians are going to get exactly what they reaped with their policies . I feel particularly bad for the citizens of these states who donot continually vote these incompetents in office , and the rest of us who will end up bailing them out.

    By design our government has no process in place to penalize breaking the law . A law without penalty is not a law at all .

    100,000 gals over what period of time , an hour , a day , a week ,a month . One dripping faucet , wastes 3,000 gals a year . How many people live in that town .
    Pros say 1 Trillion gallons wasted every year across the country . Leave it to the governments to spend millions to investigate common sense.

    I am sorry , if you look further up the road on the left where the narrator stops the video , you will see many such dark areas all shapes and sizes . I would have to call this questionable at best.

    I agree Ithinklam , it looks like Propane . You can see the source above and behind the wall , where the fire ended up after the explosion. As mentioned above it does seem that the green car underneath started the fire , I wonder if it was the catalytic converter set it off .

    Frame 35 Stewarts wheels are turned right , frame 36 the car was at a 30 degree angle pointing at the wall , as he applied gas to swing the rear away form Ward . If Stewart was trying to hit Ward , he would have gone straight , or been angled toward the infield .

  • August 10, 2014 at 12:48pm

    I am not sure , but doesnt it sound like Ward hit the wing on the blue 45 car with his fist , as it went by , and then again on Stewarts car just before the engine revved and the back end swung away from him .

  • [6] August 10, 2014 at 12:32pm

    First off , for track safety , Ward had no business getting out of his car till track officials were at the crash site and the race stopped or slowed under yellow or red flag.
    Second his bump into the wall was a result of Ward driving aggressively and putting the nose of his car where it should not have been coming into a turn . Sprint cars all drift out in the rear going into a turn .
    Third It appears to me watching the accident several times , Ward was getting as close to Stewart as he could wagging his fist . I believe Stewart was afraid of hitting Ward with his rear tire that sticks out , he then cut the wheel to the right , and gunned the engine to swing the rear away from Ward . You can see just before Ward was struck , the back of Stewarts car swings toward the infield and away from Ward. Its not entirely clear but that why there will be an investigation .
    I can say this , no driver intentionally hits another driver outside of his car , particularly Stewart .

    We have two serious possible enemies in this world China and Russia . We buy our military electronics from China and defense rocket engines from Russia . And we pay these insane fools , issuing those contracts , to run our country ? If we got into a war our missiles would fall into the sea , and we would be able to call any one to tell the Pentagon .

    I agree completely , bringing the danger here is total incompetence. My point HERE…
    In 2012 there was a study involving pigs and macaques. The animals were contained in separate cages. Physical contact was impossible. They were however in close proximity and the pigs managed to infect the monkeys with Ebola. How could that be?

    We are putting our trust in a government organization , the CDC , that say they will be able to manage this person as he arrives infected from Africa. An organization that was just in the news last month for the complete lack of management and safety procedures , in regard to Anthrax , Small Pox and Bird Flue left laying around in an unsecured areas , small pox for decades
    From the crisis management center :
    Unfortunately, the CDC dropped the ball big time in late June when internal failures led to more than 80 lab workers being exposed to live anthrax. Yes, you read that right – live anthrax. That’s not all, though. Investigators also discovered an unreported incident that saw a high-security CDC lab accidentally send samples containing a dangerous strain of bird flu to researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture in March. Oh, and if that wasn’t enough, this month saw the discovery of six vials of smallpox in an unsecured room at the National Institute of Health, including two containing live strains of the deadly virus.
    The CDC has stated that “multiple failures by individual scientists and a lack of agency-wide safety policies” led to the worrisome slip-ups, but there are signs of a deeper issue as well. According to CDC director Dr. Thomas Frieden, the bird flu incident was not reported to agency leadership at all.

    Another thing that continues to happen , when you have an important bill that needs attention , both the Congress and the Senate tack as many controversial bills as possible onto it . This not only delays or defeats a necessary bill but makes separating the various parts for correction or elimination next to impossible without fear of changing all the passed bills. This causes the creation of non targeted , very broad laws that can be interpreted many ways and thus ineffective. We need to put a stop to this practice . You see its not always the laws that are the problem , but the way our government functions and that we can easily change with a few well targeted laws limiting how our government operates . Like a balance budget law , and instituting the use of standard budget reporting replacing the useless method used now.

    When our government was formed , it intentionally had no power . It was to provide for the defense of the nation as a whole , and maintain the US Mail service across the country . All matters of governing would be handled by the states, as every states citizens had individual needs and not all states had the same needs. If the Nation , required a necessary law equally beneficial to all the states , our state representatives would create the best possible solution for all states , like the National Highway system connecting the States . You have heard this a million times , but here is what has happened over time . Its realy simple , and easily fixed over time .
    Our government has changed the narrative from , the government has no power unless given by our elected officials . Only exactly what is spelled out in the law is what is permitted , no interpretation nothing added , and can only be changed by repeal , or minor changes agreed by all representatives. If there is no law there is no government powers.
    What has changed is , the government now claims absolute power and it takes a law to limit that power . The government can do anything as long as there is no law forbidding it. This requires millions of laws , and its not humanly possible to cover all angles of an assumed power to limit its interpretation. The law becomes a matter of interpretation and therefore ineffective at limiting any power . All we need to do change the way government uses the laws we provide.
