  1. 75 years ago today, Truman saved my uncle's life

    And don't forget the Japanese planned to kill thousands of Americans prisoners if an attack ensued. I think I wrote this a few years ago. https://www.northeastshooters.com/xen/threads/on-this-day-in-history-liberation-of-pow-camp-cabanatuan.190198/
  2. 75 years ago today, Truman saved my uncle's life

    Interesting. My uncle also ended up with the army of occupation. He was a put in charge of the Geisha Houses. He always winked when he said it was the toughest duty he'd ever done. We have several of those fans, as well as a sake set.

    I am 64. Perhaps my generally childish comments confused you.
  4. 75 years ago today, Truman saved my uncle's life

    True, and that turned out to be a good thing as Hirohito was instrumental in convincing the Japanese citizens to accept drastic changes. The Japanese did agree to the terms of the Potsdam Declaration, which include the phrase "unconditional surrender."
  5. 75 years ago today, Truman saved my uncle's life

    Despite the devastating losses suffered by the Japanese defending the South Pacific islands including Tarawa, Saipan, Iwo Jima, Peleliu, and finally Okinawa, and the devastating firebombing of the home islands, the Japanese refused to enter into surrender talks. Reports back to the White House...
  6. NOTORIOUS RBG Back in Hospital

    No, it is your OPINION that she is an enemy to the Constitution; millions have the opposite opinion. I would love to see her do the right thing and resign, which she won't. And let us not forget that before his treachery (as always, inspired by a woman), Arnold was the Continental Army's most...

  9. Let's All Move to CHAZ

    Just heard on Fox News that the CHAZZ/CHOP warlord is handing out free AR-15s to those who want one. What time is the bus to Seattle leaving?
  10. Market in the toilet who’s buying?

    Should have done it this morning, but it's only like an 8 grand loss (thus far). This is why I don't watch what is happening every day.
  11. Market in the toilet who’s buying?

    I hear you. Everyone always loves to talk about their successes (see above), but we have also suffered losses--that how the game works. The best advice I've ever gotten is to contribute fully to your retirement, and then look at your statements no more than once a quarter.
  12. Market in the toilet who’s buying?

    My dad always taught me to invest in what you know. I know nothing about how to run an airline or a hotel. When dad died, we were surprised at how many stocks he bought 60 or more years ago and never sold.. He did OK. About a dozen years ago, I bought a fair number of shares of ADBE in the...

    Make your investments as best you can based upon your circumstances, then ignore the daily fluctuations. Oh yeah, the market was up 900 today; I think I'll have a drink. Oops, it's down 900 today, I think I'll have a drink.
