A Year Without Lying
Cathal Morrow is embarking on an experiment to live for a year without lying. When he's done, he'll report the results in a book to be titled The Complete Kant. (The title refers to Immanuel Kant, who said that lying is always morally wrong.)

Morrow doesn't seem to have a publisher yet for the book, though according to the Guardian, he does have a private equity company financing him for the year in exchange for half the profits of the book. (The book better be a bestseller if they expect to make a return on their investment.)

I don't believe it's possible to go a year without telling some kind of lie, unless you stop communicating altogether.

If, at the end of the year, Morrow claims to have done it, I won't believe him.

Thalerfund.li, thalerfunds.com and Mr Edward Fitzpatrick seems to be full of hoaxes, lies and fraud.

I remember Edward Fitzpatrick, very well he was the one that made me loose a lot of money on two companies. Hallal Financial and Broker Payments he made lots and lots of promises and took off with the money, I am surprised he is not behind bars

My partner lost a lot of money on two other companies, Galton Biometrix and Medify, it was just plain embarrassing, not to mention theft. Is there a website to report this sort of thing ? Are there any authorities interested in this, we have all the details. Edward Fitzpatrick fleeced us terribly.

One of the largest cell phones carrying in the nation is the Sprint. Sprint does not take kindly to their database being hacked, and that's what Gary Morrow and Timothy Flowers (who worked in Sprint's billing department) did. The two said that they would eliminate cell phone bills for them, hacking into the database and messing with payment records so they didn

So it has been over a year and I bet that Edward "Scammer" Fitzpatrick never paid a cent, as I said he has a fantastic record of taking money and not delivering, Thaler is a hoax and a scam

Fitzpatrick seems to leave a trail of disgruntled investors and crimnal charges wherever he parks his arse. Last I read he was had some scam call "European Lanch Pad" that purported to faciltate Company's expansion into the Eurozone or some b.s. like that.

At one time he publsihed "The Hindsight" newsletter and had a bespoke finacial firm called Vengua in London. Some of his stateside partners partner(s) were Tony Sandelier, John Manion, Kermit Silva, and Yolanda Velazquez .

Sandelier was recently arrested again. http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Thomas_Sandelier_5501351/

In 2004 he was charged with fraudulently selling Florida property owned by deceased or European investors via fraudulent quit claim deeds. Sandelier even got a prison tatoo in latin that said "unfairly persecuted." Sandelier claimed indigency and a court appointed public defender filed numerous appeals until he was eventually remanded into state custody.

Manion owned Continetal Capital in Winter Park FL and he was arrested for some scam back in 1998. Jimmy Holten was Manion's #1 and he was arrested for shoplifting not too long ago also.

Silva and Velazques were charged with Civil Fraud by the SEC. Silva later was admonished by the Judge for not returning ill gotten gains but instead buying luxury goods for family and friends. Silva used to brag his brother was in the Secret Service and he was untouchable. He was never charged criminally so perhaps he wasn't lying.

Interesting that Sprint telephone comes up in this thread because Fitzpatrick/Sandelier may have had a flunky from Sanford Florida named Grant Haines who worked for Sprint in central florida. Haines had the technical expertise, and the equipment, to set up unlawful wiretaps and probaly would for a few under the table bucks.

Fitzpatrick was also pals with Chantal and William McCorkle who went to prison for fraud back in the 90's.

Sems as if you if you looked up weasel in the dictonary you might see a photo of Fitzpatrick. Anybody that befriends him either gets conned orjailed for helping him.
