    Default State now claims it owns the winds ?

    State is good, State is great, lets us thank state for our wind ? Amen

    Wyoming — Shortly after they realized the potential for wind energy creation in Wyoming, renewable energy companies began constructing turbines on private property and then selling the clean power they generated to the residents. However, shortly after their ventures began, Wyoming government officials, acting on behalf of fossil fuel interests, moved in for the kill.

    The state legislature asked the question, “Who owns the wind?”
    Without much debate, the Wyoming legislature quickly determined that the state does.
    Unlike any other resource derived from the use of private property, which the property owner maintains from surface ownership, the state of Wyoming claims wind is different.
    So, lawmakers decided to tax it. For the last several years, Wyoming has been taxing the power generated by wind turbines at $1 per megawatt.
    Do not mistake this tax as part of the regular taxes that already apply to businesses like income tax and employment taxes. No, this is an entirely new tax based solely on the assertion by Wyoming officials that they own the wind.
    “Wind is different than anything else. It’s not like a mineral, which is something that sits there in the ground until you go after it,” says Bob Whitton, chairman of the Renewable Energy Association of Landowners (REAL). “It’s not like water that can be put in a lake or pond. The wind blows in and blows out and you can’t put it in a pond, pipeline, truck or train and send it somewhere.”

    Please tell me why I should worship the state (who apparently is the only party that can possess guns without question).

    The state's only purpose is to kill and control. Why do you worship it? - Sola_Fide

    lul. Wind turbines build themselves, eh? You don't use the wind's energy to propel turbines to generate usable energy and send it somewhere, eh?

    "The fact is that the average man's love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty - and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies."
    -- H.L. Mencken

    By hacking into DARPA's government contract database, I was able to obtain some encrypted files related to top secret research on attempts to do just what this chairman of the Renewable Entergy Association of Landowners thinks is impossible...

    ...transporting the wind...

    Here it is folks. May want to wipe your computer after viewing. I don't know who else knows about this technology..



    ..seriously though. They're taxing air. Moving air yes, but close enough for official declaration that the government is metastisized into the founding fathers' worst nightmare.

    Morons.
