Re: B2's delivering the CHAMP

Ironically enough, the DPRK may be much less vulnerable to this than Iran They still rely on a lot of good old manual mechanical weapons. For example, an EMP weapon would have no effect on the thousands of artillery tubes they have pointed at South Korea :nod: :nod: I remember after active duty whi...

Re: Rural Americans would be serfs if we abolished the Electoral College

It'll be interesting to see how all the Republicans now extolling the value of the Electoral College because it allowed them to win two elections in 2000 and 2016 when they lost the popular vote will respond when Texas and Florida evolve into being in the "Blue" column. When that happens ...

Re: The Official "Making America Great Again" Thread

Direct elections would be decided by the largest population centers and their desires would be foisted on the rest of the States. It is a very simple concept which you just don’t have the capacity to grasp, apparently. I grasp the concept. I just don't agree with the idea of, in today's context, th...

Re: Chinese Trade War

That’s true - but I conflated China’s trade behaviors with our own spending orgy at home. If trade with China was not affected by other factors (like our national debt and China’s ownership of it) then I think that our own ability to compete with them would have more wiggle room (and unpredictabili...

That’s your opinion only, re: whether Trump is “winning” or not. We need to be pushing back hard against China. They are technology thieves and they are currency manipulators.
