It sounds to me, that you're just trying to capitalize on your 15 minutes of fame or a higher power Read Moreis at work here to debunk it and the attention. Where have you been for the last few years? You'd have to live in a cave not to know about the runestone and all the attention with it. If you think anyone is buying your story, you are nuts. Your story is flawed in so many ways, it's pretty pathetic. You could have at least done your research and come up with a semi-believable story.

Runes are not native to America but several have have been found . That is the step #1 fact oneRead Moremust understand. Step # 2 is WHEN THEY DO in the USA, they mostly have this Hooked X design! It's also on Rosalyn Chapel in Scotland Of DaVinci Fame as well as Columbus's sigla. Step #3- understand people have been talking openly about it since the 80s in many circles. I believe several fishermen knew and communicated it to researches of rocks, etc. Step #4- History Channel made millions aware of the runestones the Program with Wolter has rerun 100s of times at this point and been brought up on other Wolter shows. Where was Brown? There are many questions no reporter or investigator has even asked yet such as the histories of the properties and families around there and the connections with Pojac/Scalabrini and Quidnesset CC itself. Why are we giving this man airtime here? Very strange to read this plea for people to listen to him on a website, and the almost child-like in manner of enticing people to respond like he has a fable to sell. LIE DETECTORS? LOL!

Cape Wind Construction Base Being Changed From Quonset Point To New Bedford ? Massachusetts localRead Moren ews media sources, politicians and state agencies are reporting the New Bedford Marine Commerce Terminal is the "construction " port for the Cape Wind ocean wind turbine project. Cape Wind has gone through a ten year federal permit process. On April 28,2010 Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar through the U.S. Department of the Interior approved the Cape Wind project. The federal permit designates Quonset Point, Rhode Island as the "construction" port. Will changing the "construction" port from Quonset Point ,RI to New Bedford, Massachusetts at this late date in 2014 trigger another review of the Cape Wind project ? The other question is does Massachusetts want another review of the project to improve the employment picture for New Bedford & Massachusetts ?

The Massachusetts news media has been producing only half the affirmative news about commercialRead Morewind turbines on both sea and land. Over 90% of the media is owned by just 6 corporations. It is my belief that these corporations themselves have become heavily invested in renewable energy projects. We see a massive failure of any kind of investigative journalism. Our only hope is that smaller news organizations pick up the slack and report the negative side of commercial wind. The cost of families losing their health around the land based wind turbines, noise and shadow flicker and taking residential property rights with NO compensation. When people start getting electric bills equal to a second loan on their home people will wake up. The problem is it will be too late

Industrial Wind Turbines fail as a solution to global warming, meeting our energy needs andRead Morecreating jobs. It's as simple as the wind often doesn't blow at high enough speeds to spin the blades, or create significant power from the spinning. Every MW of wind energy must be matched with a MW of fossil fuel generation, called spinning reserve, to make up for the shortfall. Here are a few articles explaining this and more: 1) Energy blow as wind power fuels pollution http://tinyurl.com/kb43eyf 2) The dirty secret of Britain's power madness: Polluting diesel generators built in secret by foreign companies to kick in when there's no wind for turbines http://tinyurl.com/nfkflzx 3) Reality Check: Germany's Defective Green Energy Game Plan http://tinyurl.com/mwox2hj 4) Study: Wind Power Raises CO2 Emissions http://tinyurl.com/k3cp6lt 5) Subsidizing CO2 Emissions via Windpower: The Ultimate Irony http://tinyurl.com/5wwy7wq 6) Government Lab Finds Wind Energy Not Meeting Carbon Emission Goals http://tinyurl.com/7q5n9v9 7) Power struggle: Green energy versus a grid that's not ready http://tinyurl.com/lgrnsbm 8) AWEA Confirms Electricity Prices Skyrocketing In Largest Wind Power States http://tinyurl.com/on7k5n6 And then there's the fact that wind turbines sited near people's homes severely impacts the health of many of those living close. 1) Wind Turbine Noise, Sleep Quality, and Symptoms of Inner Ear Problems http://tinyurl.com/mqxtvx8 2) Wind Turbines can be Hazardous to Human Health http://tinyurl.com/amw4lxz 3) U.S. government has known about Wind Turbine Syndrome since 1987 (U.S. Dept. of Energy) http://tinyurl.com/jwedc37 And wind turbines kill more birds - threatened eagles, hawks, falcons, osprey, etc. - than you could ever imagine: 1) Wind turbines kill up to 39 million birds a year! http://tinyurl.com/dxagmzo 2) US Wind Turbines Kill Over 600,000 Bats A Year (And Plenty Of Birds Too) http://tinyurl.com/nyo8ru3 Wind energy is a sham and only the wind industry, certain politicians, and their crony capitalist associates benefit.

The point here is the Portsmouth High School wind turbine has been broken down for two years OnRead MoreJul 1, 2009 National Geographic featured on the Program “World's Toughest Fixes,” the installation of that wind turbine. There is NO news of the break down. In North Kingstown the turbine there has stopped spinning since April of 2014. There is NO news of what happened. The news media has been replaying a utube video of a cat chasing a dog away from a little boy for the last three days.. Only tell people what they want to hear ?

The N Kingstown wind turbine is a political football. The turbine was built to show the PortsmouthRead MoreH igh School break down was just one of those things. The problem is if the N Kingstown wind turbine also fails for maintenance or lawsuits filed against it what does that do for the wind turbine industry in Rhode Island ? For some reason the Providence Journal only reports good news about wind turbines never bad news. This is the largest wind turbine in Rhode Island and the TV news media is showing a cat chasing a dog on a U Tube video for three days - I guess the large news groups are invested in the turbines . Ono other note : Before 38 Studios the RIEDC had given hundreds of thousands of dollars to wind turbine projects, loans and bonds. That money has never been accounted for either -

This is the second biggest turbine in Rhode Island after the broken Portsmouth wind turbine. Why do you think the newspapers aren't reporting why the turbine isn't working ?

Bill Carson May 15, 2014 at 08:29 AM
The Liberal Press may be helping hide maintenance or legal problems with the turbine ? It shut down Read Morewell before April 20 for a few weeks and then went on and now it's dead in the water. It's amazing the news never reports anything negative about these turbines ...

The N Kingstown wind turbine is the largest in Rhode Island & the owner is trying to buy theRead MorePor tsmouth High School broken wind turbine the second largest turbine in RI. The Liberal news media only prints puff news stories about the wind turbines when they break down they ignore it. The N Kingstown turbine was built to prove that the break down of the Portsmouth wind turbine was only going to happen once. Still the news refuses to report on a 441 foot 5 million dollar wind turbine but will show you a video of a cat chasing a dog !

While I agree that the "party rule" has contributed greatly to this, my contention hasRead Morealw ays been that the founding fathers never intended to have just 2 parties. I have lived in NJ, NH and RI and in each state, the same thing has been said. What if there was a third (or forth) viable party? The reason - as it always is - is money. We have sold our political, ideological and constitutional souls to the devil and in turn end up in more polar opposition than ever.
