February 2, 2014

Recently, the Department of Veteran Affairs reported that young veterans just out of service and receiving government health care committed suicide at nearly three times the rate of active-duty......

cade you are confused again. All the govts work is based on private inventions. einsteins math for the GPS. dont forget the solid state work too. So cade, try and get past the mocks. try and understand the govt did and does very little now. it mostly hinders. You keep thrashing lie a dinosaur in a tar pit.cade, i say again, you dont know a thing about who did what or what science actually rests on. Its all private work. i give you patent numbers and you say i have my head in the sand. kepp posting how ignorant you are cade.

yep , i checked again Steiner. I was right. And science clearly states you are clearly "Narcissistic" ...no doubt about it. How that sand taste any way. Let me guess GPS was not the goverment either,lol.

Maybe the good Father can also research the suicide rate amongst firefighters as well. The symptoms and contributing factors mirror those of the military from what I have read.

cade, edison did not invent the phone. the first net was the telegraph system. Arapnet if using solid state or tubes , well that is all base on private enterprise. Cade, the entire electric world is all private enterprise. the govt did NOTHING. Only in your delusions did it. keep posting more delusions. cade are you in anastitution for the mentally disabled or what ? i post facts you post nonsense. i post what the science rests on you say its the govt.

cade you are being stupid again. the arapnet is running on tesla AC current. All solid state involved, i gave the patents are private enterprise.How many times I gotta say this. My reference books credit edison with the first electronic tube and you say he did not do this because he did not invent the wire. How stupid can you get ?

cade, look up cyclotrons or particle accelerators. any one making good money and access to a machine shop can build one. hades, even a TV tube or a van de graff generator is an accelerator. i did not get any money from the govt for my work. it was all private financed. I know machine technology quite well cade. we are not all stupid like you and the liberals.oh the net started with the telegraph, a personal invention . the RRs also helped further relativity with the time zones and need for accurate time. facts from history cade.

Here STEINER read and learn !!!! -- In the early 1960s the military became enamored with the idea of creating a communications system that did not rely on a central interchange vulnerable to attack - think of a telephone operator's room.

So with the help of a handful of leading universities and other labs, work began on a project to directly link a number of computers. In 1969, with Defense Department money, the first node of this network was installed on the campus of UCLA. The ARPANET, as it was called, was a fore bearer of the internet.

plainly put steienr, edison in your theory did NOT invent the telephone because copper wire already existed, so no prize for him and your backwards thinking. And savery does not get credit for the steam engine becuase steel was already being used. LOL, the goverment is responcible for the oncome of the internet.

more for cade, the new deal was based on wilsonian concepts as FDR, feather duster roosevelt, known for his lack of brains worked for wilson. liberals have a long history of mental dullness. thats why Harding campaigned on a return to normalcy in the 20s. FDR later said I just gotta prolongue the great depression and he did with his blue eagle program and many raids on stores who were thought not to be in compliance. hugh johnson figured into all this. the libs borrowed form germany. Even Angela merkur said germany will no longer act unilateraly as it has backfired hugely on germany and europe. obama is only continuing wilsons fine tradition of strong arming congress as he did in the state of the union speech.give liberals credit ? yep for massive stupidity.

so cade, in case you have not figured it out by now and it looks like you have not, liberals are stupid people. Wilson was the king of liberalism in this country a hundred years ago. he borrowed fom german philosophers, all guys, not a gal in the bunch. he made more havoc on american society that McCarthy ever did in the 50s. thousands were arrested in wilsons presidency for diagreeing with the govt. Just like cuomo is today. the libs are the most intolerant people on the planet. germany had good science , but lousy social and political views. the libs lionized them till the holocaust. then they did some serious backtracking. all those dead people and 2 world wars. Libs for sure are slow learners.

now cade, edision knew, even of, you would not, the potential stuff possible with his 307,031 patent. he did not miss, like you and regelski, psycho, miss the potential in all of quantum physics. fortunes were made on vacuum tubes.I have a tube radio form the 50s which still works. i have friends from the 50s which are dead and buried. like wilson knew and recoggized newton, the inventors all private knew and recognized what they had. A replacement for the vacuum tube. all the other gadgetry would arise later. not a govt fund in the bunch. all private by private mind. liberals like you could only say you did not build that and the govt invented the net. wrong on all counts. It rests on private work. Private work is the foundation by genius guys, not a gal in the bunch. they were nurturing something or marching in streets.

Cade, give the liberals credit for what ? Solid state ? that would be stealing. Th electric world we know started with the Morse patents in the 1840s, then edisons 307,031 , credited as the first electronic device, a vacuum tube. then came the tesla patents in the 1880s and 1890s.AC electricity, motors and the like. Then the solid state work at bell labs and then, texas instruments work , patents 3,138,743 and 4 and 3,261,081 by Jack kilby.the vacuum tube, made famous by RCA , based on private work. Even tesla tinkered with tubes. It was bulky and consumed lots of power. Noone at the time of kilbys work could have forseen the huge changes in american life and the world from kilbys work. The market is in the trillions. the govt did not have anything to do ith its foundation. The bulky vacuum tube was the driver. give liberals credit ? that would steal from the great inventors like Kilby, noyce and others. Some nobel winners. once again cade, you are stupid as usual.

cade, you are being stupid again. you miss that all the solid state inventions was done by private minds. Bell labs , schockley electronics, fairchild electronics and texas instruments.these all were fundamental in the solid state world we live in. The govt did not make the solid state world. Private industry did.the first web in the US was the telegraph. it was said at the time that one coud send a telegraph to a business, order the stuff you wanted and it would be shipped to your door. the telegraph was not voice, but the telegraph was the first electronic web in america. the telegraph was the primary carrier of the bootleggers plans. dont forget, as you did, that all of this is run on electricity , the alternating kind invented by tesla. he electrified buffalo from niagara falls. Not a lib or govt thing here cade. golly you just like showing how stupid you are.historical facts ignored by you cade. stupid as ever.

So if the net was not a goverment invention, than that means the telegraph was not invented by bell. Because the guy before him who made copper wire was the true inventor. Tea baggers ,gezzzz.

Steiner you have to be a complete IDIOT to say the internet started with the invention of the phone. Your mind is so wrapped up in itself it really sad. You refuse any facts that prove you wrong 100%. You know if you think like that then WHY is it all you did is only you and not all the scientist idea you copied and claim are yours. It the exact same thing. You constantly say how you improved this and that. Well then you 100% did not invent it then, that your own reasoning back in your old face.

stang, i also think the WW2, Korea vets and america were different than now.america was more homogenious, but not now due to the immigration act of 65, passed by liberals. I had several relatives that saw action in those wars. All were socially adjusted to civilian life. One worked a flamethrower in ww2. Sometimes, on a bad hair day, he would let the enemy burn to death, for almost fun. Another , from korea would tell stories about how many enemy soldiers they mowed down with machine gun fire. All told me it was either themselves or the enemy. they wanted to make sure it was the enemy. Today, the would be almost considered hate filled speech.tolerance and diversity rule the day. So the libs have a hand in all the suicides by their hatred of america.

cade is losing it. he is getting to be like cronig. saying i got grant money for my inventions. No, I did not. cade, you just dont understand science or even how to think to understand science. all my steinertron inventions were privately financed by me. i paid for all the machine shop work. I paid for the very rare books , both science and ancient writings. While i was doing this i made sure my chemical sales were climbing ever up ward. especially the lifesavinbg one where 10,000 lives and climbing saved. even those dumb govt employess to cade. so cade, you are suffering from dumbacratitis. A contagious disease that the libs have. It makes them say the govt did everything, when in fact it did little. But thats cuz libs cant think at all. I see the posts every day here.stupid liberals just aching to show the world how stupid they are !its hard for you, but thats the way america was. Individuals made it, not the govt and certainly not dumbacrats.

The military, VA, and all the money in America can’t do it alone. Someone mentioned that we didn’t have the numbers of Veterans from previous wars committing suicide like we do today and that’s correct. Why is that? I believe one of the reasons is Veterans of previous wars, particularly WWII and Korea banded together when they got back home. They joined organizations like the Legion and VFW where they were with fellow brothers who they could discuss what they went through with those who were also through it. Mental health professionals try as best as they’re trained and educated but have never been there and don’t really know what they’ve been through. I don’t always agree with a lot of what he says but Christopher has been though combat and would be in a better position to talk with many of today’s combat Vets than many doctors; he’s lived it. Today’s GI’s are not the social club type of previous generations and that may be some of the problem; they keep to themselves.

cade is being stupid again. the govt gave us the internet, nope. If the internet started with the phone lines and/or telegraph system and further uses solid state transistora and later the integrated circuits ,then it rests on a private foundation. early colliders were private inventions. Of course, all of this is running on Tesla AC system,tesla , the granddaddy of high energy physics, the colliders, the AC system biggest private boon to america ever. all privately financed, no govt help. this made the great industial revolution possible and not a sticth of govt help.Dont forget the air conditioning another private invention, to keep the server farms cool. and dont forget those sweating,stinking, stupid democrats in the south, kept cool by private inventions. But of course the libs say, they did not build that. casde, keep posting how stupid you are !

2nd day at the Great American Outdoor show today, well worth the 6 hour drive and overnight stay. My "FREE" room at the Army War College only cost $77.00 + tax per night. Nothing like those FREE rooms at military bases right pauly?
