as anyone interested can see, the US spends an exorbitant amount on weapons largely inferior to Russia’s cheaper versions.
Much of our cutting edge equipment was soldered in China and made with Chinese components.
China spent most of the 90s acquiring this technology from the US and has improved it and taken the contracts for such work.
Black powder and gasoline are not high explosives. Some sort of nitrates maybe. Ammonium nitrate fertilizer has been changed to make it difficult to use as an explosive. I don’t want to postulate conspiracy, but this is worrisome.

Yesterday, Springfield, MO. enters the eviction racket. Missouri law gives tenants 30 days to move if evicted by a landlord. An easier way(apparently) is to take away the landlord’s business license. Some poor guy has 3 days to get his shit out. He’s poor, older and is disabled.
What a shithole we live in.

Bring back 50s era tax rates. Individuals should never have more power than the government. We have been experiencing the result, it doesn’t bode well for our future.

I have my RCA output going to my stereo amplifier. Good for movies, youtube or just plain old broadcast.
Those jacks were put there for that exact purpose. And remember 90% of your quality of sound is the quality of your speakers.
Rubio needs a new compass.
There hasn’t been a radical leftist in government since……?

People always forget the “” when writing of American* “Christians”.
I get letters from the ACTUAL USPS addressed to Dr. Bob … is that official enough?
When Blackwater became ‘legal’ all things went to hell. I missed any debate on authorizing private military groups in the country.
I guess it was when the * admin couldn’t get enough fodder for the Iraq war, or was it that he couldn’t trust the actual U.S. military with what the original plan really was??
Had that same ”45′.. Thought it was great. It got old quick though.
and don’t forget that $9 Billion that just went ‘missing’. The greatest treasures of mankind were robbed and/or destroyed thanks to our ‘great’ military geniuses.
And we got rid of Saddam(a CIA wet-dream since he turned on THEM).
I think the war in Iraq accomplished its true purpose…
apparently not a big deal there. I was there, many years ago. Nothing’s changed except further to the right.
The USMA has no interest in protecting the constitution as it says, but only protecting the US Army by promoting war.
Gone are the generals that hated war, they used to have to be amongst the troops. Now it’s all computer games for them…[Read more]

Biden will be a one-term president(if he makes the whole term). His actions will be measured and less than needed. He is who he is.
Bought and paid for by the insurance lobby. Nothing will get measurably better in the next 4 years, so the voters will elect whoever the Repugs run against him or her, depending. I seriously doubt Biden will win the…[Read more]
This started openly on Nov 22,1963. It continues to sap the nation daily. Look at the chart that shows productivity vs, wealth:
The shit started exponentially in 1973. Punishment for ending the war and impeaching the MIC’s crook in office.
Downhill from there quickly.

The M$M has been denigrating this man since he went electric. He had every right to refuse a Nobel, the M$M made a big deal out of him not responding immediately. This guy has written more good stuff than anyone on the planet. Yeah, I’m a fan for 55 years.

Advantage plans ‘offer’ more than straight medicare at the same price. Yet, if you’re not old enough to be on Medicare, it costs LOTS more. How can these companies offer such ‘cheap’ insurance for those that are likely to need it and charge extraordinary prices for those who won’t ever need it.
As a senior with regular Medicare, there aren’t any…[Read more]

D503 replied to the topic The coup that killed JFK and Trump’s attempted coup in the forum Creative Speculation 3 months ago
I don’t/can’t relate the JFK conspiracy to anything trump. The JFK murder has always pointed to bush and dulles. Considering that it was a bush involved in the attempt against FDR, I see no reason to suspect otherwise. The BFEE is linked throughout our history and is known as pure evil.
The idea that trump is akin to JFK doesn’t add for me.
