Your Questions About Paper Trading Free

Charles asks…

How or when will Unions cease to exist in Corporate America?

“Freedom of assembly, sometimes used interchangeably with the freedom of association, is the individual right to come together with other individuals and collectively express, promote, pursue and defend common interests.[1] The right to freedom of association is recognised as human right, political freedom and a civil liberty.

Freedom of assembly and freedom of association may be used to distinguish between the freedom to assemble in public places and the freedom of joining an association. Freedom of assembly is often used in the context of the right to protest, while freedom of association is used in the context of labour rights and the right to collective bargaining, for example by joining a trade union. Freedom of assembly as guaranteed in the Canadian Constitution and the Constitution of the United States are interpreted to mean both the freedom to assemble and the freedom to join an association.”

Damn this freedom crap all to hell…!!! Corporations are more American than any damn American is!!! We need to figure out a way to turn that constitution thingy into toilet paper because it seems to give individual people more rights that it gives to corporations. We cannot let quaint little ideas like freedom and workers rights interfere with the spread of Fascism in America.
Corporations and their shareholders are the reasons our Founding Fathers fought and died to free this country, and now those damn serfs (employees) are getting all uppity and thinking they can influence corporate business practices that have the nerve to give the people a cut of the profits through higher wages. These people clean our toilets for God’s sake and they seem to think they have a right to speak? They think they have a right to dictate working conditions as though their lives are actually worth something?

We need to act now to get legislation passed to rid Corporate America of this assembly crap, make it a crime for one slave to speak openly and freely with another slave, make the punishment really bad like firing them and forcing them to live off welfare in the comfort and security of their shanties. Let them feel the shame of not having a job!!

So how exactly do we go about ridding this country of this democracy junk to allow Corporate America to take this country in a direction that will make the rich richer and make the poor poorer as God intended the world to be?

John answers:

I think with both Reagan and Bush doing everything in their power to destroy unions, the fact that they are still here bodes well for us. It’s kinda funny, don’t you think that the “free marketers” think everything except labor should be subject to the free market economy.

I like many of the rest of you know the answer to this question.

Many of us know that big Corporations have a vested interest in not legalizing this truly magical plant.

Im just tired of people thinking they know whats best for YOU. If an idiot can jump off a building cause he lost it all in the stock market I should be able to smoke or use a plant the way I know it can add to bettering my life without some jacka$$ shoving a law down my throat so that ill buy his product.

I hope my generation has seen the lies and the corporate greed and some how wait till these old conservatives that only think of money and corporate gains for their stockholders, die off to get the job done.

There are too many good answers and some stupid replies that even had validity, however we must educate the rest of the masses or they might just use coal as the alternative to petroleum.

John answers:

Yes. And there are so many reasons why I could never list them all here… So I’ll list just a couple that you might not have read about.

1) Growing hemp will help fight terroism. Sounds crazy but it’s not at all and I’ll give one example, but there are others… In Nepal, back in the early 80’s the US government tied aid to a requirment that Nepal make the cultivation of hemp illegal. There are three regions in Nepal, the mountains which strive on tourism from people treking the Himiliayan mountains, the city of Kathmandu which strives on commerce and tourism… And then there is the middle, rural regions which strives on farming. When growing hemp was outlawed, these family farmers went broke. With no income, they were very open to the ideas and philosophy of the Maoist rebels. The Nepali government changed their policy to allow these villagers to cut hemp plants that grow wild in nature and there is today a hemp industry in Nepal as there was since 2,000 years before Christ. But the key point is that if the farmers and villagers of Nepal had been allowed to grow hemp, there is an arguably much greater chance that the Maoist rebels message would not have been so well received by the people in this region. Now, extroplate this one instance to other countries such as Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Columbia, and Sudan. If the US government actively promoted the cultivation of hemp farming techniques in these regions, and if there was a market for their products, which is pretty much a given… Then there is a strong argument that terroist organizations would not be so succesful because the vast majorities of these populations are non-radicals who are inclined to support Islamic fundamentalism… If they had financial independance, if they farmed and earned a living, they would not be so inclined to support these groups. Remember hemp can grow in almost any climate, hemp has over 2,000 uses, hemp is a very easy crop to grow and requires no chemicals/pesticides… Hemp would be the best crop to use to get the agriculture economy up and running in these countries. And agriculture is best starting point to get people working and earning a living…

Here’s one more example…

Hemp is the one of the best sources of essential fatty acids (EFA’s). Fish oil is the best source but there are other downsides with fish oil, like the high level of mercury in fish and the current fishing policies are draining our rivers and lakes of natural fish resulting in future fish only being grown in fish farms which have to deal with runoff pesticides. (sorry for the side track).

We are now learning about the enormous benefits of EFA’s and their role in maintaining our health. EFA’s in a nutshell are critical to maintaining healthly cell wall structures and healthy cell walls are essential for preventing heart and lung disease, and in slowing the normal effects of aging. If hemp were freely grown there is a great argument that many processed foods would begin to incorporate hemp seed and hemp oil into the ingredients to boost the level of EFA’s. Today you can find hemp bread, hemp pasta, hemp pretzels and hundreds of other hemp foods… But these foods are not mainstream. Getting hemp into mainstream food would have a dramatic health benefit on the general population… In the US and throughout the world. If the US didn’t try to outlaw hemp cultivation in every country you would see countries like India and coutries throughout Africa growing hemp and incorporating hemp into the local diet which would have enormous health benefits and economic implications.

One last thought…

You’ve listed many different products that can be made with hemp. If hemp were legal to grow in the US, the many agriculture universities in the US would undertake R&D initiatives to develop new uses and applications of hemp and to improve current cultivation and production methods. As a result of this research, I belive, we would see a dramatic adoption of hemp into many everyday products. We know hemp composites can compete with plastics. There are companies making hemp CD cases, hemp skateboards and surfboards, and in Germany hemp automobile body parts. We know hemp paper is better than wood pulp paper. We know hemp textiles are better than cotton. We know hemp fuel is potenially more econmical than petroleum. There are so many benefits of hemp and so many uses, but the hemp industry needs to leverage the full R&D resources public and private universities and large private commerical R&D labs to maximize the full potential of the plant. Legalization will unlock this potential I believe and hopefully the US farmer will soon be able to grow hemp in the same way farmers around the world are now free to grow hemp and in the same way farmers in the US once grew hemp. And yes, the world will be be better place as a result.

Mandy asks…

Did the Twin Towers fall at “free fall” speed as “conspiracy theorists” allege?

The time required to strip off a floor, according to Frank Greening, is a maximum of about 110 milliseconds = 0.110 seconds. It is rather the conservation of momentum that slowed the collapse together with a small additional time for the destruction of each floor.

Below are calculations from a physics blogger…

When I did the calculations, what I got for a thousand feet was about nine seconds- let’s see,
d = 1/2at^2
so
t = (2d/a)^1/2
a is 9.8m/s^2 (acceleration of gravity at Earth’s surface, according to Wikipedia), [He gives this reference so you can double check him.]
d is 417m (height of the World Trade Center towers, same source)
so
t = (834m/9.8m/s^2)^1/2 = 9.23s
OK, so how fast was it going? Easy enough,
v = at
v = (9.8m/s^2 x 9.23s) = 90.4m/s
So in the following second, it would have fallen about another hundred meters. That’s almost a quarter of the height it already fell. And we haven’t even made it to eleven seconds yet; it could have fallen more than twice its height in that additional four seconds. If the top fell freely, in 13.23 seconds it would have fallen about two and one-half times as far as it actually did fall in that time. So the collapse was at much less than free-fall rates.

Let’s see:
KE = 1/2mv^2
The mass of the towers was about 450 million kg, according to this. Four sources, he has. I think that’s pretty definitive. So now we can take the KE of the top floor, and divide by two- that will be the average of the top and bottom floors. Then we’ll compare that to the KE of a floor in the middle, and if they’re comparable, then we’re good to go- take the KE of the top floor and divide by two and multiply by 110 stories. We’ll also assume that the mass is evenly divided among the floors, and that they were loaded to perhaps half of their load rating of 100lbs/sqft. That would be
208ft x 208ft = 43,264sqft
50lbs/sqft * 43264sqft = 2,163,200lbs = 981,211kg
additional weight per floor. So the top floor would be
450,000,000 kg / 110 floors = 4,090,909 kg/floor
so the total mass would be
4,090,909 kg + 981,211 kg = 5,072,120 kg/floor
Now, the velocity at impact we figured above was
90.4m/s
so our
KE = (5,072,120kg x (90.4m/s)^2)/2 = 20,725,088,521J
So, divide by 2 and we get
10,362,544,260J
OK, now let’s try a floor halfway up:
t = (2d/a)^1/2 = (417/9.8)^1/2 = 6.52s
v = at = 9.8*6.52 = 63.93m/s
KE = (mv^2)/2 = (5,072,120kg x (63.93m/s)^2)/2 = 10,363,863,011J
Hey, look at that! They’re almost equal! That means we can just multiply that 10 billion Joules of energy by 110 floors and get the total, to a very good approximation. Let’s see now, that’s
110 floors * 10,362,544,260J (see, I’m being conservative, took the lower value)
= 1,139,879,868,600J
OK, now how much is 1.1 trillion joules in tons of TNT-equivalent? Let’s see, now, a ton of TNT is 4,184,000,000J. So how many tons of TNT is 1,139,879,868,600J?
1,139,879,868,600J / 4,184,000,000J/t = 272t

Now, that’s 272 tons of TNT, more or less; five hundred forty one-thousand-pound blockbuster bombs, more or less. That’s over a quarter kiloton. We’re talking about as much energy as a small nuclear weapon- and we’ve only calculated the kinetic energy of the falling building. We haven’t added in the burning fuel, or the burning paper and cloth and wood and plastic, or the kinetic energy of impact of the plane (which, by the way, would have substantially turned to heat, and been put into the tower by the plane debris, that’s another small nuclear weapon-equivalent) and we’ve got enough heat to melt the entire whole thing.

Remember, we haven’t added the energy of four floors of burning wood, plastic, cloth and paper, at- let’s be conservative, say half the weight is stuff like that and half is metal, so 25lbs/sqft? And then how about as much energy as the total collapse again, from the plane impact? And what about the energy from the burning fuel? You know, I’m betting we have a kiloton to play with here. I bet we have a twentieth of the energy that turned the entire city of Nagasaki into a flat burning plain with a hundred-foot hole surrounded by a mile of firestorm to work with. – Schneibster edited by Debunking 911

Let me make this clear, I don’t assume to know what the ACTUAL fall time was. Anyone telling you they know is lying. The above calculation doesn’t say that’s the fall time. That was not its purpose. It’s only a quick calculation which serves its purpose. To show that the buildings could have fallen within the time it did. It’s absurd to suggest one can make simple calculations and know the exact fall time. You need a super computer with weeks of calculation to take into account the office debris, plumbing, ceiling tile etc.. etc… Was it 14 or was it 16? It doesn’t matter to the point I’m making, which is the fall times are well within the possibility for normal collapse. Also, the collapse wasn’t at free fall as conspiracy theorists suggest.

Politically Wrong: The details “debunk” the free fall speed “conspiracy theory”. They don’t confirm it!

Thank you.

The only people bothering to back themselves up with data here are the debunkers.Wonder why that is?Could it be that the fruit loops know the crap they cite makes no sense at all and are too embarrassed to post it?

Chris asks…

Research Paper Help ?!?

In the 1800’s when slaves and slavery were a common household term, there was one slave who was going to change the course of U.S. history and slavery due to her courage and determination to become a free woman. This woman was Harriet Tubman. Her escape from freedom and courageous work on the running of the Underground Railroad inspired many to escape from slavery and seek a life that slaves never had the chance to live. Harriet Tubman was a female suffragist, slave, and conductor of the Underground Railroad, who without her help, U.S. history may have never seen the end to slavery.

In the peak of the international slave trade, Araminta Ross (Harriet Tubman) was born into a family who lived on a plantation in Maryland, which was a state that had not outlawed slavery, so Harriet was forced to be a slave. From a young age Harriet was needed in the house to do various chores. By her early thirties Harriet Tubman had grown tired of being controlled in every aspect of her life, so she decided to what many thought was impossible, to escape from her owners plantation, and flea to the north.

In the early 1840’s Araminta Ross married a free man whose name was John Tubman and took the name Harriet Tubman which is how she is known today. Fearing that she was going to be sold into another plantation Harriet decided to run away to Pennsylvania which had outlawed slavery at the time. Her husband was too scared to go with her so she took her two
brothers and set off on a mission of freedom. Using the North Star as her guide to freedom she reached Philadelphia but along the way her brothers became extremely scared and turned back around half way there. Once Harriet reached Pennsylvania she became a servant for a house in and saved up enough earnings to help more slaves escape to freedom through the Underground Railroad. Her determination and thoughts of freedom pushed her to rebel against her owners and seek the freedom that she and her family deserved. Once she was free, Harriet was about to do the impossible.

While working as a conductor of the Underground Railroad Harriet put herself and the slaves she was leading in great danger. Leading slaves to freedom could have her put to death, have the slaves she was leading put back into the plantations that once owned them, or they could have been killed. Over the course of ten years Harriet made over 19 trips through the slave states and freed more than 300 slaves. She was never once caught in her actions. At one point in time there was a reward for $40,000 for her capture and return to Maryland. Harriet was a fearless leader, who without her help many African American slaves would have not gained the freedom that they had deserved.

The Civil War had tensions between the Confederate army and the Union army at an all time high. Tubman was sent to work in the Union army, mainly as a spy for the army. While in the Civil War, Harriet led many slaves to freedom and also destroyed the Confederate army’s supplies. Harriet Tubman lived almost a century after the Civil War ended and continued to fight for an end to slavery and also she tried gaining supports for women’s rights in the United States.

This is what I have so far. Its suppossed to be a paper focusing on Harriet Tubman and how she was a rebel. Not a biography, but I had to explain most of the events that made her a rebel.
Constructive Critism?

John answers:

This is edited to show some of Harriet Tubman’s rebellious nature.

This woman was Harriet Tubman. She was a rebel when in came to rer escape from slavery. She was courageous when she ran the Underground Railroad. It resulted in many blacks who escaped from slavery. Ms. Tubman sought a life that slaves never had. She utilized her life as as a suffragette and conductor of the Underground Railroad to provide opportunities to Black slaves for a life in freedom. Without her help, U.S. History may have never seen an end to slavery.

At the peak of the international slave trade, Harriet Tubman was born into a family who lived on a plantation in Maryland. It was a state that favored slavery, and in Maryland she was forced to be a slave. From a young age, Ms. Tubman Harriet was needed in the house for various chores. By her early thirties she had grown tired of being controlled in every aspect of her life. She then decided to what many thought was impossible, to escape from her owners plantation, and flea to the north.

Donna asks…

Do you poets relate to this poem?

MIDNIGHT WRITER

They found me sleeping,
slumped over a cluttered table,
ink-stained fingers still clutching
the sharp instrument of my trade.
Why do you do this, they asked,
Why do you sacrifice yourself?
Life is to be lived, they whispered,
screwing the cap onto the glass bottle
of blue-black ink, which held words
only I could release and set free
on immaculate paper, still moist
from newly shed tears.
Writing is easy, I whimpered,
It’s the living that’s hard.

John answers:

So well put, my compliments. Writing comes from living. A little imagination and extra paper helps to reveal. How big is your garbage can?
