The ONT That Built America

Evening Horde! Remember last week when I said I was a bit under the weather? Good news! It wasn't the 'Rona. I just got my test results back, and as you can plainly see, I tested negative for COVID-19! Yippie!

The ONT That Built America


Has anyone been watching the “XXX that built America” series on History channel? There are a whole bunch of them, The Food That Built America, The Cars That Built America, The Titans Who Built America, The Machines That Built America, etc. They're really good! Each series focuses on telling the story of that particular thing. For example, “Cars” is a three episode look at the history of automobiles in America. It starts with William Durant buying up car companies to establish GM, Henry Ford's struggles to come up with the Model T, and so forth. I'm amazed at the cast of brilliant characters interwoven throughout the story. Durant founded GM, got bounced out by the board when he spent too much money, so he went on and established a new company with a Swiss(!) race car driver named Louis Chevrolet and managed to reacquire a majority stake in GM before being bounced for good in favor of Alfred Sloan who really launched GM to greatness. Meanwhile, Henry Ford was struggling to produce a car, any car, that people wanted to buy, until he partnered with two of the most brilliant engineers in Detroit, the Dodge brothers. We all know the story of the Model T. Meanwhile, Walter Chrysler, who had been running Buick for GM, quit when Durant reacquired the company, but was persuaded to stay when Durant personally offered him a $250K/month (in 2020 dollars) salary, along with millions in stocks and bonuses. Several years later he quit for good and went on to establish Chrysler Corporation, which was soon rivaled Ford and GM in size. He purchased Dodge Brothers in 1928, renaming it Dodge. Dodge Brothers had been founded by guess who? when they had a falling out with Henry Ford and left Ford Motor Company.


All of the men, their lives and careers interwoven, their drive and ambition unparalleled, creating by their talent and sheer will the American century. It's utterly fascinating.

They other series are just as well done. “Food” focuses each episode on rivalries between men and companies who created various segments of the modern food industry. Coke vs Pepsi (did you know Coke had not 1 but 2 opportunities to buy out Pepsi when it was struggling?), McDonalds/Burger King, Campbells Soup/ Heinz, the list goes on.

So, anyone else watching these? I love them, they're great shows.

Speaking of the ONT that built America, tonight is my 5 year anniversary, more or less, of doing these things. 5 years ago today Maetenloch stepped down from his ONT duties.

A Smart Military Blog


The thing I like best about this list is that it gets #1 exactly right, which makes sense since the guy is a naval aviator. I might quibble and put the Hurricane in place of the Spitfire, which can be justified because one of the main metrics for the list seems to be how effective the plane was at doing its job in its time period, but who do you bump if you move the Spit down? I think I'd make the list “20 greatest” instead of 18, stick the Spit in a couple of spots below the Hurricane and add the one more aircraft. If we do that, what plane gets to be the 20th? My vote is for the Me 262. There aren't many planes that can be said to “change everything”, but the Schwalbe is one that did. What plane gets your vote for number 20?

I really hesitate to use the terms “us” and “them”, because doing so is historically prelude to lots of bloodshed, but the people whom Prager quotes here sure don't think like I do.

What’s ripping American families apart? Responses from the bizarre world of New York Times readers

Look, there's lots of people who disagree with me politically. That's OK, as long as we are allowed to do just that – disagree. For many of the quoted folks, however, if you don't agree with them politically then you are an unperson, and everything else - family, friendship, community – be damned. This does not bode well. Prager also makes this observation:

Many Americans — especially among the religion-free and the well-educated — think life is supposed to be pain-free. And when it isn’t, it is someone else’s fault (usually parents or white people).

I broadly agree with what he's saying, but haven't any of these people ever seen The Princess Bride?

I live here in retard land, Seattle.
We've not really moved backwards, yet. Masks are now "encouraged " for everyone indoors, but not mandatory.
Cruise ships are still arriving and leaving our port.
Tourism is picking up and obvious around typical spots.
Masks are about 40% downtown, 10 on the beach. 70 in my grocery store (in a very libtarded area).

I don't see my area generally following another lockdown. There's too much at stake for even Jay Inslee to mess with.

*Respectful tip of the hat*

Went out with a friend today to hike a certain area. My navigator had a smart phone. We missed the turn and circled the place without finding it. The last part was going down an unmaintained rotten farm lane, crossing the one lane bridge labeled for 3 tons only, with the edges crumbling into the void. Then the big cattle gate ahead was locked, so we turned around.

You are a great navigator compared to my friend.

One thing to keep in mind, a lot of wankers will try to make comparisons between the rise of the automobile and the near overnight disappearance of horses in modern life, and how electric cars will do the same to cars and trucks.

What they don't realize (apart from basic arithmetic and base load electricity generation and distribution) the automobile industry in 1902 didn't need to outlaw horses, nor provide tax incentives and the rest of it.

The Biden administration is considering using federal regulatory powers and the threat of withholding federal funds from institutions to push more Americans to get vaccinated -- a huge potential shift in the fight against the virus and a far more muscular approach to getting shots into arms, according to four people familiar with the deliberations.

The effort could apply to institutions as varied as long-term-care facilities, cruise ships and universities, potentially impacting millions of Americans, according to the people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive conversations.

Posted by: confederatefifth

I'm not so sure 5th. iirc, Carroll's main point was Hultgreen never should have been carrier qualified. She was a fine aviator but NOT ready for the Bigtime. The mishap should have been laid directly at Big Navy's insistence that a female be aboard and flying - damn her qualifications. I may have it wrong though.

Oregonian neighbor here. Even here in the burbs of the Portland area, a lot of people are going maskless in public indoor spaces, maybe 70 to 90% now. It feels like the apatite isn't really there for another lockdown, but people will probably meekly go along with it if it is ordered.

I do think that the inmates residents of both states benefit from the fact that Gov Brylcreem to the south of us is under the gun. I don't know as much about Inslee, but Brown is pretty much a follower, so if she can't tag along with Newsome and Inslee, and has to make the lockdown call all alone, she may not do it.

129 On the fighter list, I think I'd drop the F4F and even the Fokker Triplane. If the F4F made the list, why not the Hurricane? The SE5a might be a good addition. Instead of the Triplane, consider the Albatross, the Fokker D7, or Spad XIII. I think that the Yak-9 might be more important than the P-38, at least in the very competitive European theatre.

There is one aircraft that cannot be on the list (it wasn't a pure fighter) but it would in my opinion top the list of best all round combat aircraft of all time. This is a plane that was a day fighter, night fighter, pathfinder, long range bomber, tank killer, reconnaissance aircraft, and maritime strike aircraft. It flew missions at 40,000 ft and 10 ft. This is a plane that the Luftwaffe awarded 2 kills for one plane being shot down. They admired and feared it so much that they tried (unsuccessfully) to clone it and their prototype was even given the same name! On top of that, it was absolutely beautiful. Of course, I'm talking about the de Havilland DH98 Mosquito.

So he's blaming the unvaccinated for vaccine resistance developing. This is....stupid.

And AnalPanicPundit over at HotFart seems to be getting skeered if I'm reading between the lines correctly. Vaccine failure/evasion is finally dawning on him to be a real thing, and he's realizing he may be at risk.

161 As to the question "Can Congress pass a law not allowing rent?" I'd say they can... if they also allow a landlord to continue to throw out people. They could foreclose a use of the property, but they couldn't take the property in the sense of requiring you to let people stay there for free. You want people there, they stay free.... but you don't have to have people there. That might be legal. Or at least an argument could be made, like Congress saying you cannot store chemical waste on your property is ok.

they do not have enough federal agents to do anything.

It would be sheer folly to try to run enough raids to enforce a lockdown because they know enough citizens know they do not have the resources to achieve anything meaningful.

That is why the feds need partnerships with state and local law enforcement and why state and local law enforcement say no to cooperating with the feds it is a big thing.

Saying they are going to do something and then not having the resources to follow through would be a disaster for the feds.

He was a major protectionist who today would have made Trumps tariffs look like empty farts in comparison to protect the domestic economy, and the industrialists hardly contributed any money to his campaign, meanwhile the meeting between Rockefeller, Carnegie and others to discuss buying the president was pure work of fiction

So I didn't really know who Donald Trump was, I knew of him, a little bit, I knew he was a wealthy New York real estate guy, had a TV show for a while, where he would fire contestants. I knew that from commercials, I never saw the show.

Anyhoo that's the backdrop, in 2016 everybody I had to wonder if maybe this guy was running interference for the Clintons. "Oh that's just great .." But he was saying some good things. Some of the entertainers were trying to make jokes about him.

I figured though, if he was for real, the usual suspects would start screeching like wounded eagles. And I was right, it wasn't a week or so and they all went to DEFCON 1; and any worries about him being a spoiler were laid to rest. He was, and remains, the Real Deal.

I bet the 86s would win. Now up the 86 to something like an F-5. I wonder if in an actual war you would be better off with more of the cheaper planes...

Business magazines were always talking about the explosion of places like chipotles and Moe's and Qdoba etc. I could see CFL people starting this Truett's Luau to see if they could branch out and take advantage of the texmex craze.

It also depends somewhat on the overall number of F-35s relative to the size of the battlefield.

You'd never put an F-22 against some F-86. You'd put a bunch of cheap decades old AA batteries against them. I'm not saying there's a good reason for the money spent on the F-22 or F-35. Being that we're a completely neutered client state of china and all. But modern systems have specific niche roles in countering certain threats and old tech isn't one of them. We've gone down the path of specialization.

338 It also depends somewhat on the overall number of F-35s relative to the size of the battlefield. In a proper war with lots of pieces in play, I'd take a big blob of cheap planes that can be everywhere over a small number of high end planes that can only project their force in a few strategic areas.
Posted by: CppThis at August 05, 2021 10:43 PM (UewuT)

the real strategic problem with the F-35 is the amount of maintenance hours you need per flight hour... its currently as a 50 hours of maintenance per 1 fight hour.

Sure, they may kick ass when they fly... but they spend so much time not being able to be flown....

356 Here's a very good piece I just saw at Denninger's forum:

https://tinyurl.com/375f2va6

They look at the latest Israeli data, and break it down by date of vaccination. For those vaccinated in Feb, efficacy against infection and symptomatic infection is down to 16%, with the 95% confidence interval down to zero. The good news, is that efficacy against severe disease while declining is still holding at 80%+ (as of 7/17).

But if that continues to hold, the viral mutation evasion caused by the very leaky nature will quickly overwhelm that.

Note that boosters give you diminishing returns quickly.

Note the main, big point. Because these vaccines are obviously not sterilizing, there is no scientific justification for mandating vaccination. It does nothing for the "collective".

I mean, both of them make good rhetoric, but as Democrats have amply demonstrated, some entire ethnicities can, easily, be exempt from any law at all. So the easy fix for this is: BIPOC and "allies" are exempt, everyone else must comply or face restrictions. Just like with looting, election fraud, and saying "the N word" -- to name but a few things that are de facto conditional upon ethnicity and political leaning.

This includes grocery stores. If you ain't vaxxed, you can't buy groceries. Technically this applies only to "large" such stores. You can still get delivery, but guess what, there's nobody to deliver.

When driving down that long driveway, you get a sense you are in a kill zone. An I guarantee you, it would be if he wanted it to be.

You are completely blind going in for several hundred yards. His buildings are off to the side, and you can't see 'em when you start down the drive.

If you were not wanted, say in face colander times, I'm sure if you started down that driveway, some .50 armor piercing would destroy the engine of your vehicle. And that would likely be the last conscious thought you had.

Knowing him (he's a machinist too, btw) he might have some even heavier hardware to unleash. But he wouldn't breathe a word about such.

472 The French and Americans have been butting heads since day one. Sure the French helped us in the Revolution, and that has been well documented. But President Washington switched his alignment/or global focus to the Brits soon after that. I am sure the French were pissed about that one.

I read long ago that the main reason the French and Americans always go at it is they are two of the only countries that truly believe they are the model for everyone else. That does explain a lot when you get down to it. The problem for the French is is they failed so much at backing that one up. I give them this much credit, they certainly punch above their weight.

it is pretty good. I liked the first half the best but real connoisseurs prefer the second half. Most of the actors are true lefties. It is hard to get away from that one because it is so rampant. Mandy Pataimkin is left at they come. Carly Elwes is a lib too and outspoken. The second guy bothers me because he was great in Glory. He is so much the better actor.

but it is a good movie. The funny thing is the famous Rush statement that Hollywood is politics for dumb people, and politics is Hollywood for ugly people.
I saw a good argument online not long about about why everyone in Hollyweird is is Leftist. I think it was on Joe Rogan but I will check on that. The main argument is they want to go along to get along, and the people that decide if they get jobs are lefties. The actors mostly don't care, so of course they are going to go along to get along.

498 RHPS was *the thing* when I was in HighSchool. Didn't see it then, but heard alllllll about the props one should bring with. Many theaters "banned" said props, to no avail of course. (what was it? newspaper, toast, rice, I can't remember it all...)

Anyway, many years later I decided to rent it (haha, remember Blockbuster?) and oh, boy. Couldn't get past the first 10 minutes. Bleccch, I never cared for Meatloaf's music, and this movie was *FULL* of that!

Anyhow, I spent less than theater price, so there's that.

I usually just lurk, but if there's anyone here at the moment who prays, please pray for my husband. I'm afraid he has COVID -- sudden high temperature, confused, and feels awful -- and he has multiple risk factors.

I will pray for him, prayers sent. But screw them, call 911. Don't drive him there, don't get in line, call 911. This is a ton of experience speaking. These people don't need to live with the fallout, you do. I used to think it was a bother to call 911, or it would be embarrassing somehow. I learned the reality. If your family member is unwell and you don't have an answer from a doctor, call 911. The worst that can happen is they are ok.

515 I meant the only thing that could embarrass you is they are ok. And that never happens. If they are sick and you don't have an answer, call 911. I hope I have been clear on this subject. I say it because I care and because i went through this one.

Posted by: Quint at August 06, 2021 03:52 AM (ZS6f0)

516 Girldog, not sure sudden onset is indicator, so it could be something else unless you have known exposure. If his condition changes otherwise call them back. But here is a prayer for complete and immediate healing.

531 So the other day I got a "Ping" on my cell phone at about 3:30 from someone who was sending a political text message. This morning at 2:30 the phone rang and then stopped. l It was a call from a dear older friend of mine who is in assisted living and has dementia and sometimes doesn't remember he's called. He must have realized it was really early in the morning and hung up before I answered He's at the stage of his illness where sometimes he's really sharp and other times he's angry and argumentative or confused.

I feel for the folks caring for relatives with dementia at home. I hope you can sometimes get a break with somebody else coming into help.

I hear what you are saying. That is the way it should be. Life can be weird though. There are always reasons. Funny thing about the world and the English language, "reasons" can be the worst word.

Posted by: Quint at August 06, 2021 04:30 AM (a8b7P)

537 my mask is so dirty I don't wear it. It is be unsafe to wear a mask that was dirty. But I gave up masks long ago. Make me were one you poofs.

I wore a military cravat for the first part of this dem panic. It had a personal meaning to me from way back when. Hell, I can't even find it now thought it is at least thirty years old. I gave up on masks a long time ago. I am done, and i think a lot of people are done. But I know I am done.

Posted by: Quint at August 06, 2021 04:34 AM (a8b7P)

538 So yesterday I went with my family to a nice local place for breakfast. There was a very cute girl maybe in her early 20s there in a tight red shirt and a shor-tish black skirt and she was wearing impossibly high high clunky heels. She also had on a pentagram in a necklace and a hairband that had little horns. I couldn't figure out if this was a fun "dress up" thing for her, (But why would you do that at 9:30 in the morning in a coffee shop when it isn't Halloween?) or if she were really a witch or a Satanist. I didn't ask her. I didn't have a conversation with her, but if she thinks being a Satanist is a funny, cutesy thumb in the nose to religious types she isn't aware of the fact that most of the culture is completely degraded and she'd be more transgressive if she were Amish or Orthodox Jewish and wearing a long dress.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at August 06, 2021 04:38 AM (k39e/)

people always have reasons not to help out a sick elder or someone caring for them. They might be good reasons, but there are always reasons. That was what I was talking about. When someone decides to take care of another, it is a major commitment. It is not for everyone and I would never prescribe it. But you mentioned spelling someone, giving them a break. That is a very good idea and the least people who care should do.

Posted by: Quint at August 06, 2021 04:45 AM (a8b7P)
