  • Very good infro tim. The ropkey museum was east of me. Made several trips there. The owner died and the place sold. Not sure where all the stuff went. He was a marine commander or leader, whatever they called them.

  • Sad? Really?

    The business world runs on Windows. USA designed and developed. Apple Computer the same. Apple is the standard in telecommunication. How about Google? Couple of Stanford guys with an idea. Your computer runs with Intel components as does most of the rest of the world.

    Two of the largest worldwide consumer goods sellers, Amazon and eBay are American. The American automobile industry is building cars as good and better than any produced overseas, particularly pick ups and class eight trucks.

    Caterpillar is a world leader in construction equipment. The airport in Hong Kong was built using 996 CAT loaders and 314 CAT haul trucks, along with other CAT equipment.

    THe size and productive capacity of American built farm equipment is better than any produced in Europe or Asia.

    Machine tool technology? How about Haas for their CNC machines and development of high speed (25,000 rpm+) ceramic cutting tools.

    American industry ain't dead yet.
