The good Reverend has now posted a comment on that article, revealing some exciting developments. I thought I'd post his comment as a separate post.
Here it is:
Hello - the device is now Patented - in Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land Antartica, along with the newly organized US Trust Territory of Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land ( a place that can support natural cryonics for those that wish to be preserved or medically resurrected after death )I was curious about the claims by Izzo that he could get patent protection in Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land. These are both areas of Antarctica. According to Wikipedia, Marie Byrd Land is unclaimed by any nation, and parts of Ellsworth Land are claimed by Chile and parts by the UK.
Inventions are not money - if you want money then a erson should make money ( coins ) - a lession that caused me to lose some of the most important things I had.
Thank you for posting this, I didn't think people would ever know the rotten time I had with the US Patent Office - whose only source of funding is from inventor fees not tax dollars - about US gold clause contracts as US Dollars - they where made a Legal tender by the Act of Congress of June 5th 1933 ( US Title 31 sec 5103 ) and made exchangable for other forms of US currency by the Act of Congress of Aug 27th 1935 see the original joint resolution for US Title 31 section 5118 part B )
My holding are still secured with a mortgage with about 2000 miles of abandoned railroad tracks of the former New York Central Railroad the gold bonds where/are due from 1997-2013 but we don't want to foreclose on the mortgage because we would have to pay the taxes and liablity and our mortgage gold bonds ( legally holding the term 'United States of America' ) are money anyways see US vs Bankers Trust 1935.
I spent over $10,000 USD at the USPTO since 1996 just to secure my intellectual property rights , if any, and then found my local government suddenly bullying me over my 13 messed up rental properties , demanding a total sum over $250,000 USD for code violation fines etc, from 1996-2000 - starting two weeks after I filed my patent for the 1st invention , the Microwave Hot Water Boiler Heating System now Patented
The devices in question in the invention ( the nuclear electric generators with radioactive magnets or microwave emitting magnetron ) do not violate the laws of physics but are nuclear and radioactive ( restricted / limited use ) see Richardson's Law for Thermionic Emmissions and thorium plated cathodes )

History of the United States Trust Territory of Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land Antarctica go to:
" Claimed a territory of the United States in 1929 and 1935 by Antarctic explorers, Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd and Lincoln Ellsworth, the United States Trust Territory of Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land was organized in 2008 and 2009. It comprises of the land area in Western Antarctica that extends between 90 degrees West and 150 degrees West on the Antarctica continent, incorporating the Territory State of Marie Byrd Land and the Territory State of Ellsworth Land Antarctica in perpetual union. The area is governed by The Articles of Confederation of the United States Trust Territory of Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land accepted on January 22nd 2008 and ratified on March 20th 2009. "
Best Wishes in the Future Dr Izzo
The good Reverend knows an opportunity when he sees one. He needs somewhere to run his cryonics business, and there's a whole pile of cold space going to waste. He has accordingly established the Articles of Confederation of the United States Trust Territory of Marie Byrd Land and Ellsworth Land. They look remarkably similar to the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union of 1777, the first US constitution, but that's by the bye. A new nation is born. I just wish I'd thought of doing that first.
And there's some good news for Izzo and his patent application:
- do you have a standing army?
- will you be sending a team to the Olympics?
- is there a tourism office? (in case I want to visit your splendid country)
- assuming you're the head of state, were you elected? Or are you taking a "divine right of kings" approach?
- do you have a currency?
- are there any plans to expand your territories?
