What are you trying to say? That tax fraud isn't a crime? Or that dumping environmental toxins isn't a crime? How on earth are you equating smoking
pot or littering with tax fraud and dumping environmental toxins?
Isn't it obvious?
I'm not trying to say anything, i am actually saying it.
If you are having problems comprehending my point, then i'll explain it for you.
The point being made is a relatively simple one..in simple terms, rubbishing someone's current achievements or positive work based on previous legal
or illegal matters is completely missing the point of the current work being discussed, or can be seen as a deliberate attempt to discredit the
current and positive work by churlish gossip that is irrelevant to the topic at hand, iow, a successful cold fusion test, which generated 470KW hours
per hour self sustained is the important focus for the world, not whether or not the guy has been trying since the 70's fuel crisis to find a viable
alternative fuel, and had mishaps and legal tussles years before.
The significance of several presidents admitting that they too are criminals by illegally breaking their own laws they have since sworn to uphold,
should be obvious to anyone, but in case you don't get it..there are hundreds of thousands of men and women, and young adults currently locked away
in prison for simply smoking, possessing, or growing a few pot plants...ask them if their current misery is a trivial matter for them or if they feel
fine about one man being sent to prison for it and another sitting in the Oval office for doing the same thing?
If the crime is serious enough for one man to be denied his liberty and have his family suffer, then the same should be true of the hypocrites in high
office who have ripped the man from his family and put him into prison if they commit the same crime.
I don't agree anyone should be sent to prison for possession or use of drugs. The self confessed procession of dope smoking US Presidents DO though,
and regularly enact legislation that condemns non violent, ostensibly normally law abiding people to years of misery in prison for doing the exact
Yet, the hypocrites get to remain in high office, and the innocents get sent to jail.
Previous 'criminality' obviously doesn't appear to have a bearing on brilliance or invention or even attaining positions of political power, except
possibly as a motivational force to achieve better. And no, i do not 'equate' tax crime and environmental crime with littering and drug taking, they
are all illegal however, and goes to the issue of the blanket statement of 'criminal' being used to discredit Rossi's current achievements with the
You can summarise this post yourself mate, reading the meaning behind the bumpf is a good idea with long winded posts from me.
