More for less

I know it sounds like an oxymoron but the idea is to take a submarine capable of launching nukes and converting it to launch tomahawk cruise missiles, thats the good bit or the less as in less destruction, but the downside it can store and launch seven per launch tube 🙁

Here is an overview from Northrop Grumman Corporation’s press release about the contract they have just recived to develop the prototype.

Multiple All-Up-Round Canister (MAC) concept ..(is designed) to adapt the missile tubes of Ship Submersible Ballistic Nuclear (SSBN) submarines from launching nuclear ballistic missiles to conventional cruise missiles. The reconfigured submarine will be known as the Ship Submersible Guided Nuclear (SSGN).

The MAC is a subsystem of the AWS that will replace the existing Trident ballistic missile launch tubes and provide for the storage and launch of up to seven Tomahawk missiles from each submarine missile tube. Each SSBN submarine will be able to accommodate as many as 154 precision-guided, conventional land-attack Tomahawk weapons.

It is planned that each of the four SSGNs will be modified to allow two Advanced SEAL Delivery System vehicles (mini subs) to dock, enabling Special Operations Forces deployment to wars worldwide.

So less nukes but heaps more conventional firepower oh well.

Come on NASA let us know the truth..

A person who I personally admire and I think his Galaxy clock is great is ufologist David Sereda, he feels NASA has not been truth about things in space, and that they doctor their photographs before the public gets to see them. (I have seen footage recorded by a cable company of the live feeds from the 1980’s shuttle missions in the film EVIDENCE The Case For NASA UFO’s and something is up!)

This well-known Ufologist, take’s his message concerning UFOs to many people, but feels that NASA has secrets about UFOs it is keeping from the public, and its time to change this. He has an online petition to try to get him on the shuttle as a passenger on an upcoming flight, and he wants to take along his cutting edge equipment including special cameras sensitive to visible, infrared and UV to search for UFO activity. And then report his findings to the world.

If nasa has nothing to hide why don’t they run live broadcasts anymore ? Why do the astronauts go “quite” midway in conversation ? (some say they are talking on an encrypted NSA channel)

Here is a excerpt from his petition.

Dear Chief NASA Administrator Michael Griffin;

Subject: Special Skills application for Astronaut

I, David Sereda, would like to apply to become an astronaut for special reasons. I saw a UFO in Berkeley, CA in 1968 when I was 7 years old. It was saucer shaped, metallic and hovered silently not far from the Berkeley National Lab for over 20 minutes. There were fifty or so witnesses with me. After 20 minutes, the flying saucer went invisible: invisible to the naked eye that is….

…NASA anticipated contact with Extraterrestrials when it first set out to journey into space (See the Space Act and the Brooking study 1958). If contact has been made, and the American public has been deceived, NASA may have made the greatest mistake ever for a public agency….

Please advise me of the application process.

Sincerely,

David Sereda

I hope he makes it, maybe the Russians who are more open to UFOs will take him up.

Taxing times

I found this via www.whatdoiknow.org, it is policy, law whatever from the Kansas Department of Revenue (KDR) and basically it says that drug dealers must affix Tax Stamps to their deals to comply with state taxation laws ???

What happened ? Did all the state officials sit around one night having a discussion on how to fix the low levels of the state coffers, someone pulls out a joint and a light goes on (they paid the power bill).. The rest is history we can tax an illegal activity Lets see that open up all sorts of legal loopholes.

Here is the text from the KDR website

“The fact that dealing marijuana and controlled substances is illegal does not exempt it from taxation. Therefore drug dealers are required by law to purchase drug tax stamps.

The drug tax is due as soon as the dealer takes possession of the marijuana or controlled substance. Payment of the drug tax will purchase the drug tax stamps. Attach the stamp to the marijuana and/or controlled substance immediately after receiving the substance. The stamps are valid for 3 months. Drugs seized without stamps or having expired stamps may result in criminal or civil penalties which may include fines, seizure of property or liens against real estate.

A dealer is not required to give his/her name or address when purchasing stamps and the Department is prohibited from sharing any information relating to the purchase of drug tax stamps with law enforcement or anyone else.

Purchasing drug tax stamps does not make possession of drugs legal.”
