Aaron Swartz and a depraved Justice System.
Aaron, a hero of the internet and a legend among men, was targeted by a corrupt system that sought to make an example out of him. He faced a harsher punishment than murderers, robbers, child pornographers, or even terrorist sympathizers! All for doing nothing more than downloading academic articles.
The story of Aaron is only scratching the surface. We have seen how the law is wielded less and less to uphold justice, and more and more to exercise control, authority and power in the interests of oppression or personal gain. We have felt within our hearts a burning rage in reaction to these events.
It is our goal to alter this absurd system. Many voices have been speaking out or taking to protests. We must unite ourselves into an overwhelming chorus so that we me reform this profligate system. Where this is Unity, there is Victory.

The belongings of a real-life Pirate of the Caribbean have been discovered off the coast of Panama and are set to go on show for travelers keen to see how 17th-century buccaneers lived.
The pirate was Captain Henry Morgan, of rum bottle fame, a Welshman who looted throughout the Spanish Main in the 17th century before losing five ships in the West Indies.
Fritz Hanselmann, an underwater archaeologist with the River Systems Institute and the Center for Archaeological Studies at Texas State University, found swords, barrels and chests belonging to one of Morgan’s ships after a three-year search.
“Morgan was one of the most infamous privateers of all time, so this was a chance to use archaeological research to bridge the gap between science and pop culture,” Hanselmann says.
The recovery follows the discovery of six of Morgan’s cannons off the Panamanian coast in 2010. . . . Read Complete Report w/photos

“He was one of history’s shrewdest military minds, a human chameleon who combined brutality with personal charm. Latest underwater forensic techniques reveal the truth about history’s most notorious pirate, Sir Henry Morgan. Three years into his quest to find the real Henry Morgan, salvage specialist Klaus Keppler made a sensational discovery — battleships from Sir Henry’s time, the 1660s. The ships were lying in only 5 meters of water in the Caribbean Sea, off the coast of Haiti, all accessible and perfectly preserved. We join Keppler and his team as they scour the ocean floor and unlock the secrets behind history’s most notorious pirate. Lovable rogue, brutal mercenary, successful businessman, alcoholic and loyal servant of the British Crown, The Real Henry Morgan tells a tale that puts ‘Treasure Island’ to shame” . . .

One of the strangest treasure story’s that I’m aware of is the story of Oak Island and the elusive money pit. Sure, the exact spot of the so-called money pit is known. The problem is that due to an ingenious series of obstacles no one has ever been able to reach the treasure believed to be hidden at the bottom of the pit. If there is a bottom. Here’s a great site to virtually explore the famous “lost treasure” story. . . EDITOR
What lies at the bottom of the Money Pit?
Imagine yourself walking through the trees of a wooded island rumored to hide buried pirate treasure. Suddenly you come across a depression in the ground. It’s roughly circular and there’s a tree standing above it with a branch that has been cut and appears to have been used as a pulley. Your imagination is fired and hope soars. You run off to get your friends and digging equipment.
You and two friends return the next day, shovels in hand, ready to claim your prize. The digging is easy. The dirt loose. Only two feet down your shovel strikes rock. As you clear the dirt away you find a neatly arranged layer of flagstone covering a circular area 13 feet in diameter. You pry the stones out, expecting treasure but there’s only more dirt.
You begin again. Digging down 8 more feet with no luck. Suddenly you hit wood. This is it. You scrap away the dirt only to find a platform of oak logs covering the pit. You pull out the logs and resume your digging.
Ten more feet and still nothing. Finally, you strike wood. This MUST be it. As you clear the area you find another level of oak logs.
Now you know there’s something valuable here. Why else would anyone go to so much trouble?
Now 20 feet below the surface you heave to again. Another 10 feet. Another set of oak boards.
Disappointed, you and your friends decide that you can’t go any further alone. You leave but vow to return to retrieve your treasure.
Now imagine that it’s more than 200 years later. The pit has been explored to more than 150 feet. The treasure, if any, that was buried is still there, protected by an ingenious booby trap that floods the pit with sea water anytime someone gets close.
Group after group after group have tried to solve the riddle. Neither brute force nor technology have been able to overcome the problems. Six lives have been lost and millions of dollars spent trying to uncover the secrets of what has become known as the Money Pit. Still, no one knows what lies at the bottom, who built it or why. There are numerous theories but little proof.
This is the story of Oak Island, Nova Scotia, one the most frustrating and intriguing mysteries of all time.
Join us as we explore what is known and what is theorized about this enigma. Perhaps you will be able to find the one clue or come up with the right approach that will finally help crack this puzzle. . . . Go to site
