Re: When America understood warship building

The Bismarck bow on is an impressive sight. I'll take one of our last 8 BBs though - the South Dakotas and Iowas. North Carolina and Washington are good looking too (but a little lighter on the armor) The New Jersey BB-62 is the one I saw coming into port in San Diego. I was on the USS McKee at Poi...

When America understood warship building

I had seen numerous aircraft carriers both docked, passing by in channels and at sea. None were as impressive as the first time I saw a battleship.

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

It would be impactful if enough of us showed up. And the actors who tend to give the rest of us a bad name stay home instead of making scenes with elected officials. I’m one of those guys who raged against the OCT antics and the dumb way they handled themselves and representing gun owners. But hone...

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

We really like the beautiful fan in our bedroom; we'll have to see if we can live with a ceiling fan on high all the time. Does your fan also have a pull chain for speed setting? If so, does it still work on all 3 speeds? The remote receiver in the fan housing might have blown, these can be replace...

Re: Building an electric guitar from kit

Thank you kindly - this has been a journey over 3 years in the making. I tore out the electronics 2 days ago and went with Switchcraft output-jack and selector, then CTS pots (from The Art Of Tone) with Orange Drop caps - and went 50s-style wiring. From the sounds of your deeper experience with thi...

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

I watched Breitbart's live stream today and I swear I've never seen so many black, Hispanic and Asian white supremacists before. So many guns and so much ammo and not a single shot fired. It's as if the statistics about gun deaths by legal gun owners is true or something. Amazing. They are becoming...

Re: Keep an eye on Virginia

2. Why do we not start having a TSRA day each legislative session here in Texas? I used to go when the TMRA2 (Texas Motorcycle Rights Association) had their legislative day. We had about 3000 motorcyclists show up each time and meet individually with their representatives and senators. It worked wo...
