Having International Corporations tax us directly without Government would be more efficient

Let's not split hairs.

We all pay taxes to international corporations. The elite own us and tax us to breathe.

We the people are collectively that stupid and lazy to just let it continue to happen.

Companies like Chemical Corporation Monsanto that benefits from wars, conflicts, and national sovereignty being eliminated.

Elections to benefit Jews Only?

There is a lot of stuff on the internet. There are a lot of lies and blatant propaganda. There is racism. There is state sponsored terrorism using tax money collected from citizens.

Who, and what, do you choose to believe?

What is the face of Monsanto Executive Child Abuse?

I know about child abuse, from my earliest childhood memories. My father has a chemical engineering degree and worked most of his adult life for Monsanto. My mother could not trust my own father alone with me as she knew he wished me harm, and did physically abuse me, and then psychological and physical abuse continued.

My father did not want my mother to be nice to me, to hold me, to talk nice to me, or to do anything for me. He felt her duty was to him, and to his needs. I was just a parasite on his humanity, or lack thereof. I remember numerous incidents of having lit cigar thrust in my face or into my eye. I had burned eyelids and eyelashes over numerous occasions and years. Being slammed into a wall, beaten, or yelled at and lectured on what a piece of shit I was, happened almost daily when there were no witnesses.

My father said some pretty amazing things to me, especially when I was very young. 

"You won't be allowed to enjoy your childhood, I didn't enjoy mine."

"I'm punishing him because he tried to get out of bed." Said to my mother. My father would come in my room, take my Teddy Bear out of my arms even if I was peacefully sleeping, unplug my vaporizer or knock it on the floor, and start slapping, or punching me for wheezing, or having asthma, or for his just being a sadistic, child abusing, narcissistic, bi-polar, corporate lunatic, douchebag. I realized from an early age my father was a complete liar and hypocrite.

"You belong permanently down the basement. You should not be allowed around regular people."

"You used 5 Kleenex, that's wasteful." I was punched in the face for this. I still had snots to fill a Kleenex full with. My father would sit outside the door and try and count how many sheets of toilet paper I used, so he could burst in on me taking a dump and start beating on me. 

"I don't want your mother or anyone else being nice to you, it'll make you think you are special, or something." This statement usually preceded a beating and a barrage of cruel put downs. 

Age 5 he told me, "Don't waste your dime calling me when you are in prison. I won't care and I won't help."

"I'm an important man, no matter what excuse you may have, you are not worth my time."f

"You're worthless and annoying. You need to ask anyone you meet what is so annoying about you, and what you need to fix you. Apologize to anyone that you meet for having to put up with you." From age 5 until a bit after age 10 I was ordered to do this by my father. How do you think things worked out for me in the animal kingdom which is youth? 

"Your mother is short, you are going to be short, you have asthma, you should not be allowed to be around a basketball court or normal people. You're always going to be worthless." My father throws a basketball in my face at full force. I was maybe age 5. 

"You throw like a girl." First time being taught how to play catch, one or two throws, exchanged. My father then drills the baseball full force into my face giving me a bloody nose. I still don't know how to properly throw a baseball.

"Stand where I tell you to." I was 4 or 5 and was to help my father saw wood with a bow saw holding end without a handle. He was using the saw to try and bash it into my ribs, and pull it back hard to smash my fingers against the log. He'd bash me with a rake handle when we were raking if I looked at him, or didn't look at him.

"You're worthless, nobody will blame me if I disown you."

"I don't want you living off of me. I don't want to support you."

"I didn't have friends growing up on the farm."

"I worked 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, on the farm."

"You're playing wrong. You are doing it wrong." If I played with my friends at 4 or 5, or whatever age, I was punished. I was also punished for smiling, for joy, and for sitting quietly relaxed. 

"What is mentally wrong with you that you'd like him?" Something my father said to girlfriends upon first meeting them and to any of my friends who came around. Most girlfriends were no longer after a 1st meeting with my father. 

"You should be checked for being retarded, so I can send you away." I remember this one after I had one the Western Massachusetts Chess Tournament, in 3rd Grade for grades 3 to 12.

"You don't deserve to go on vacation with me, you're not good enough. You are only going because I couldn't get someone to watch your worthless ass."

"I hate him, I'm not taking him out on the boat." Said to my ten year old friends who were taken out on the boat on two consecutive Father and Son fishing weekends in Maine. What pycho father would take his son on a father and son fishing trip, just to show the son and tell others how much he hated his own son? I now regret not turning my father into gym teachers who saw the bruises and abrasions on my back from the constant beatings. I regret not cooperating with a nurse at a hospital to have my father arrested for child abuse.

"I'm not going to your Jr. High Graduation. You're not important. I will go to your sister's." 

"Go out and rake the yard right now. I don't want you thinking you can sit on your ass just because we are on vacation." We had just arrived at my grandparents house in North Dakota. The grass had been cut, the yard had already been raked and my father just didn't want me in the house visiting. My grandmother did squash the idea of me raking when it didn't need to be done.

My mother couldn't take the physical and psychological abuse anymore and my father and mother took me out to a nice restaurant for my 16th birthday to announce they were getting divorced. Later, my father said, "Why don't you go live with your mother? Oh, she doesn't want you either."

"I'm not signing any financial paperwork for you to go to college. My father did not pay for my college. You can pay me rent when you turn 18, and you can pay for your own community college if you want to go."

"I want him arrested for something, I want an excuse to kick him out." - said to his friend with whom he often shared a bottle of Scotch Whiskey. My father didn't want to pay for my college and wanted to kick me out of the house before I finished high school. 

"If you leave the house, you are never welcome back here."

"You're not welcome to any of my Superbowl parties. You're not good enough. You don't have a four year college degree. I don't even want to see your face on Superbowl Sunday."

"He's a piece of shit liar, don't listen to anything he says. He's worthless. He's a self-employed contractor."  Said to my younger sister's now husband the first time my father, my future brother-in-law, and I were in the same room. My brother-in-law and I have been at odds ever since. I thought I had another friend, when we met, and started to hang out. My future brother-in-law, trying to please my father, for his being with my sister, started to rank on me and abuse me as well. My other brother-in-law owned an auto repair shop and my father tried to get him to quit hanging out with me because I was a complete piece of shit because I was self-employed ... that, now deceased brother-in-law was also self-employed.

"If you missed a payment on your credit card, you don't have good credit and you should not be dating." My father perseverated on me, and kept screaming at me, and my girlfriend of 5 years, at my sister's Florida wedding until my girlfriend and I broke up. It was the first time we had spent any time with him as a couple.

"He's lazy, worthless, disorganized, and you have to carry his weight, why do you want to be business partners with my son." My father came to a house that my friend and I were painting. That is what my father said to probably my oldest friend. Every chance he tried to turn my contracting business partner against me. Calling him behind my back is just bi-polar lunacy in the highest degree. 

"I wrote you out of the will because my wife told me to." I was invited to go to Christmas Eve with my then wife. I didn't go, but the "meeting" was to tell me I was written out of the will, basically disowned. To that point, my father had no legitimate excuse to take such an action. It was another strain put on my marriage.

"Your sister's Key West house is for family members in good standing. You don't have a college degree. You are not in good standing and will not be allowed there. I will see to it. You are to ask me permission to visit your sister in Ft. Lauderdale or you won't be going there."

"You're not allowed to be around your sister or brother-in-law, unless I'm there too. You get nothing, understand? I don't want the pickup, trailer, or anything going to you, understand?" I found out my brother-in-law, the one married to my youngest sister had been in a motorcycle accident. I knew nothing of his condition and was thinking nothing of possessions. That brother-in-law was my only life raft in a sea of abuse. My father was way less abusive, condescending, demeaning, and cruel to me around him. This brother-in-law was the brother I never had, and a friend who looked out for me as I did him. 

"Steve is deciding what is going to be done about your brother, not you." Said to my brother-in-laws older sister when my youngest sister's husband had a motorcycle accident and was in the hospital brain dead. It took my father about a minute to take advantage of a grieving woman and turn her against me for his sadistic twisted pleasures. He prayed on her emotions. My father told me that I was going to get nothing from my brother-in-laws like his pickup truck and trailer and that he would see to it. It didn't even cross my mind. So, my father plotted to turn my youngest sister against me, permanently. So, my father was out to poison my reputation and get as many of my family, and extended family, upset at me, and me so upset at him, my father, that I would not be at the funeral or wake. Mission accomplished.  

"Go to the bathroom, right now! I don't care if you have to go, or not." This was screamed, over and over, at me before my Brother-in-laws" funeral and wake. Every time I walked away to get away from my father he follow me, even trying to get in bathroom stall for one with me. I have never met such a lunatic and he is my father. I have never wanted to punch so one so hard, and not stop, ever. Just restraining myself from not becoming violent was all I could do. I had made arrangements to borrow a suit from a woman's son, to go with the woman I was a personal assistant for, and she was to fund my ability to go. My father told me that she couldn't go, meaning that he did not want me at the funeral, so my youngest sister has not, and probably will never talk to me again. 

"I want him to go to prison. I don't care what you have to do. I'll pay you, so that he goes to prison. He needs to be taught a lesson." This is what my former attorney told me when I faced a year and a half in prison for pepper spraying a druggie felon who attacked me in my dark driveway, demanding that I give up my wallet or he'd kill me.

"You have to listen to me, anything I tell you to do. You can make no decisions for yourself. You have to consult with me. You are not allowed to complain about any police officers or judges. If you don't agree to do what I say, I will see to it that your daughter never talks to you again and that you never have a contracting business ever again." My father said this to me when he came to visit me in prison for my having resisted being mugged on my own Stafford Springs, Connecticut property. My daughter has not called me, "Daddy", or said, "I love you." or had much to do with me since that conversation.

My father calls the police on me if he knows I have a place to live, a girlfriend, or have a job. I've broken no laws. Police told me that my father approached authorities at the court to see to it that I got prison for something I should have never even been arrested for. [That Story]

My father is a wife beating, child abusing, rapist who should be even more ripe for prosecution for his aiding the Great Satan as a minion, Monsanto. But he has not been jailed for decades for any of his crimes. He is rich and living comfortably, even though he is a parasite on humanity.

1.4 Trillions Dollars! You’ve been sent the bill. You will never be able to pay down the debt you’ve been assigned.

Bushes made money off both sides of World War II, funded the Nazis and profited from Concentration Camps!

CIA, Cocaine Trafficking, profiteering with Central Bankers

Wars make these people more money. It makes you more of a debt slave.

What is the Clinton body count? How many died to cover up the Clinton CIA cocaine trafficking, banking scandals, and sexual deviance?

Hillary is allegedly as bad a serial womanizer as is Bill.

Did Hillary kill, or have killed, Vince Foster in the White House and then have his body smuggled out?

If Vince Foster lived and testified against Hillary, she’d be serving serious prison time.

Why the F is the UN controlling all US land, resources, and energy?

Is the UN and UNESCO just a front for the biggest criminals in the history of the World?

Why are you letting international criminals make you pay for them recording all of your conversations, using your devices to spy on you, and tracking all you do for their protection, not yours?

If you have no privacy, aren’t you a prisoner, a slave?

Central Bankers, produce Debt Slavery for Wars and Conflicts



The concept is not new. As long as there have been money changers and money storage, there has been psychopaths' greed satisfied.

History repeats itself.

Corporations that produce war, police, conflict, and prison supplies need more strife and unrest. They don't care where they cause it. They are crapping in their own nest, the US, UK, and other places.

Meanwhile, most Americans care about a scandal about the inflation of footballs, not their future and freedom being ripped off from under their feet.

Is paying taxes, treason? Are you funding international organized crime and endless wars?

Are bi-polar people merely biological robots, born without a soul, or possessed by demons?

My own father would do this seemingly for hours

My father is a former [Monsanto Executive], allegedly in [InfraGard], and a proponent of Secular Humanism

From age 2 or 3 I remember numerous incidents of my father trying to poke me in the eye with a lit cigar

Up until age 16 when I called him out to fight me, my father would just come over gain pleasure by giving me pain

I haven’t talked to him in about 4 years, yet his psychological abuse continues to haunt me

My father told me that he didn’t enjoy his childhood, therefore he would not allow me to enjoy mine

It is people like my father who bring you Monsanto GMO “food” for you to be the test subjects. Crap they won’t eat themselves.

My father didn’t want me to watch television, especially with him. I was told I was not good enough to watch sports with him and was being lazy the very few times he allowed me to.

The first time I played catch with him at age 4 or 5, the 2nd throw back, he drilled the baseball as hard as he could into my face saying I throw like a girl and he didn’t want to even have to look at me.

First time I walked around the corner at about the same age, my father threw a basketball in my face telling me to go to the basement as he didn’t even want to look at me.

My father told me that because my Mother is short, and that I have asthma, I was worthless, weak, never going to amount to anything, wouldn’t be able to play sports, and that I should not waste my dime calling him from jail as he wouldn’t care. I was 5 at that time.

My Monsanto Executive Father didn’t want me to have friends, because he grew up on a farm in North Dakota without indoor plumbing and electricity as he had no friends growing up.

I was punished for joy, especially on my birthday or during holidays.

My father ruined every relationship, or potential relationship with women and girls, since the current one. He tried to turn my friends against me. And, my business partner, since I was in my 20's, my father has tried to poison his ears any time he’s talked to him.

My father tried to destroy my relationship with my future wife the first time he met her. He screamed at me. I met her in Lithuania and she is a former model.

Before I was even out of High School, my father was trying to get the police to arrest me for something so he would not have to pay for my college and could kick me out.

I had quit talking to my father just after a family gathering where he screamed at me for no good reason in front of my wife. It was weeks later a police officer in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, Fat Frank Prochaska started slamming me against my own house saying I was “Mud People” for being part Sicilian, and that my wife should be with him and that I didn’t know the right people to have a pretty wife.

“Fat Frank” Prochaska after slamming me into my own house said he was going to call my father on me and that I was kicked out of Connecticut but my wife could stay.

From about age 3 my father would burst into the bathroom and start slapping me or punching me for using 5 Kleenex or for using more than 10 little sheets wiping my ass after taking a dump. It is pretty unsettling having your father listening outside the bathroom door ready to burst in.

Why am I typing all this as part of the rolling script? Well, it is individuals like my father who are the billionaires, corporate organized crime figures, officials, and bankers who are in charge of everything. They decide your future and the fate of all of us.

Like my father ...

Synthesizing Natural Gas and Methane to High Octane Gasoline

When big international corporations are involved in anything and are involved in co-opting governments, all the we the peoples of the world are screwed. This post expanded [here].

There are some interesting technologies that a garage or backyard tinkerer could go a long way with ...

-

Putting the below Wikipedia entry [found here] below before it possibly disappears. 


Syngas to gasoline plus

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Syngas to gasoline plus (STG+) is a thermochemical process to convert natural gas, other gaseous hydrocarbons or gasified biomass into drop-in fuels, such as gasoline, diesel fuel or jet fuel, and organic solvents.

Process chemistry


The STG+ Process
This process follows four principal steps in one continuous integrated loop, comprising four fixed bed reactors in a series in which a syngas is converted to synthetic fuels. The steps for producing high-octane synthetic gasoline are as follows:[1]
  • Methanol Synthesis: Syngas is fed to Reactor 1, the first of four reactors, which converts most of the syngas to methanol when passing through the catalyst bed.
    CO + 2 H2 → CH3OH (methanol)
  • Dimethyl Ether (DME) Synthesis: The methanol-rich gas from Reactor 1 is next fed to Reactor 2, the second STG+ reactor. The methanol is exposed to a catalyst and much of it is converted to DME, which involves a dehydration from methanol to form DME.
    2 CH3OH → CH3OCH3 + H2O
  • Gasoline synthesis: The Reactor 2 product gas is next fed to Reactor 3, the third reactor containing the catalyst for conversion of DME to hydrocarbons including paraffins (alkanes), aromatics, naphthenes (cycloalkanes) and small amounts of olefins (alkenes), typically with the carbon number ranging from 6 to 10.
  • Gasoline Treatment: The fourth reactor provides transalkylation and hydrogenation treatment to the products coming from Reactor 3. The treatment reduces durene/isodurene (tetramethylbenzenes) and trimethylbenzene components that have high freezing points and must be minimized in gasoline. As a result, the synthetic gasoline product has high octane and desirable viscometric properties.
  • Separator: Finally, the mixture from Reactor 4 is condensed to obtain gasoline. The non-condensed gas and gasoline are separated in a conventional condenser/separator. Most of the non-condensed gas from the product separator becomes recycled gas and is sent back to the feed stream to Reactor 1, leaving the synthetic gasoline product composed of paraffins, aromatics and naphthenes.

Catalysts

The STG+ process uses standard catalysts similar to those used in other gas to liquids technologies, specifically in methanol to gasoline processes. Methanol to gasoline processes favor molecular size- and shape-selective zeolite catalysts,[2] and the STG+ process also utilizes commercially available shape-selective catalysts, such as ZSM-5.[3]

Process efficiency

The STG+ process converts approximately one MMBtu of natural gas into more than five gallons of 90+-octane gasoline, which is one of the highest process efficiencies in the industry.[4]

Gasification

As is the case with other gas to liquids processes, STG+ utilizes syngas produced via other technologies as a feedstock. This syngas can be produced through several commercially available technologies and from a wide variety of feedstocks, including natural gas, biomass and municipal solid waste.
Natural gas and other methane-rich gases, including those produced from municipal waste, are converted into syngas through methane reforming technologies such as steam methane reforming and auto-thermal reforming.
Biomass gasification technologies are less established, though several systems being developed utilize fixed bed or fluidized bed reactors.[5]

Comparison to other GTL technologies

Other technologies for syngas to liquid fuels synthesis include the Fischer-Tropsch process and the methanol to gasoline processes.
Research conducted at Princeton University indicates that methanol to gasoline processes are consistently more cost-effective, both in capital cost and overall cost, than the Fischer-Tropsch process at small, medium and large scales.[6] Preliminary studies suggest that the STG+ process is more energetically efficient and the highest yielding methanol to gasoline process.[7]

Fischer-Tropsch

The primary difference between the Fischer-Tropsch process and methanol to gasoline processes such as STG+ are the catalysts used, product types and economics.
Generally, the Fischer-Tropsch process favors unselective cobalt and iron catalysts, while methanol to gasoline technologies favor molecular size- and shape-selective zeolites.[8] In terms of product types, Fischer-Tropsch production has been limited to linear paraffins,[8] such as synthetic crude oil, whereas methanol to gasoline processes can produce aromatics, such as xylene and toluene, and naphthenes and iso-paraffins, such as drop-in gasoline and jet fuel.
The main product of the Fischer-Tropsch processs, synthetic crude oil, requires additional refining to produce fuel products such as diesel fuel or gasoline. This refining typically adds additional costs, causing some industry leaders to label the economics of commercial-scale Fischer-Tropsch processes as challenging.[9]

Methanol to gasoline

The STG+ technology offers several differentiators that distinguish it from other methanol to gasoline processes. These differences include product flexibility, durene reduction, environmental footprint and capital cost.
Traditional methanol to gasoline technologies produce diesel, gasoline or liquefied petroleum gas.[10] STG+ produces gasoline, diesel, jet fuel and aromatics, depending on the catalysts used. The STG+ technology also incorporates durene reduction into its core process, meaning that the entire fuel production process requires only two steps: syngas production and gas to liquids synthesis.[1] Other methanol to gasoline processes do not incorporate durene reduction into the core process, and they require the implementation of an additional refining step.[10]
Due to the additional number of reactors, traditional methanol to gasoline processes include inefficiencies such as the additional cost and energy loss of condensing and evaporating the methanol prior to feeding it to the durene reduction unit.[11] These inefficiencies can lead to a greater capital cost and environmental footprint than methanol to gasoline processes that use fewer reactors, such as STG+. The STG+ process eliminates multiple condensation and evaporation, and the process converts syngas to liquid transportation fuels directly without producing intermediate liquids.[7] This eliminates the need for storage of two products, including pressure storage for liquefied petroleum gas and storage of liquid methanol.
Simplifying a gas to liquids process by combining multiple steps into fewer reactors leads to increased yield and efficiency, enabling less expensive facilities that are more easily scaled.[12]

Commercialization

The STG+ technology is currently operating at pre-commercial scale in Hillsborough, New Jersey at a plant owned by alternative fuels company Primus Green Energy. The plant produces approximately 100,000 gallons of high-quality, drop-in gasoline per year directly from natural gas.[13] Further, the company announced the findings of an independent engineer’s report prepared by E3 Consulting, which found that STG+ system and catalyst performance exceeded expectations during plant operation. The pre-commercial demonstration plant has also achieved 720 hours of continuous operation.[14]
Primus Green Energy has announced plans to break ground on its first commercial STG+ plant in the second half of 2014, and the company has announced that this plant is expected to produce approximately 27.8 million gallons of fuel annually.[15]
In early 2014, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) allowed Primus Green Energy’s patent covering its single-loop STG+ technology.[16]
