Our NIST.... A Compilation of Information

Fellow Truth Seekers,

I just wanted to start a topic where we can compile information and comments on NIST
I hope to read and add my thoughts on these findings
Please leave all your discoveries and comments below:

National ConstructionSafety Team Advisoy Committee 2003 Report to Congress:

Does NIST Have a Stake in the War on Terror and the Control and Surveilance of American Citizens
NIST: Both Fingerprints, Facial Recognition Needed to Protect U.S. Borders

Isn't the Department of Commerce a Branch of the US Government?

As a non-regulatory agency of the US Department of Commerce's Technology Administration, NIST develops and promotes measurement, standards and technology to enhance productivity, facilitate trade and improve the quality of life
NIST is 1984

NIST Director Urges Better Security for Critical Industrial Systems

And you thought NASA was a funnel for money that will never be accounted.

"Gauging the Economic Impact of Government R&D Programs
Over the last 10 years, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has conducted more than 40 economic studies to estimate the costs and benefits of both completed and potential research efforts. As a result, the agency has collected an impressive amount of information on best practices for assessing the value of government-funded research and development programs. ".... don't read this too fast.... it cost alot of money....savot it like a fine wine

Check out this Smoke Screen:
Where does all this money go?
Do you have any idea what you could do with this money which could
make this country a better place? They could do this research and development
every three years and get far more accomplished. We could build factories and
learn by trial and error like we used to do instead of paying a bunch of people
to make educated guesses at the way people should do things.
They are spending our money... don't you think we should know what they are
finding in their studies and whom it benefits if anyone at all.

Our schools are going bankrupt while Universities are drowning in money while
not producing it's quota of truely qualified professionals. Are these Universities realize
that if they do not help that their future clientele are not going to meet the standards
to qualify for higher education? or are they just going to keep lowering the standards?

Our Social Security is dwindling by the day yet we pay for programs designed to benefit
large corporations when large corporations should if they want to succeed should
if necessary pay to implement it's own studies or research and development.
We should not have to pay to support major corporations in a capitalistic society.
The very nature of it dictates that the strong survive.

Health Care is skyrocketing out of control while CEO's pay is getting increasingly disproportionate
to the average salaried employee. And we th tax payers are paying companies
or governmental branches like NIST to do studies or develop technologies which
will be handed over to a corporation of their choosing to be produced.?

More Good Governmental Budgetary Numbers....Including NIST

I'll post more when I get some time.
