    I didn't get my azz busted if I didn't work flock , I just didn't get gas money, or beer money , or prophylactic money.

    OT, your definition of fascism in your first post is the correct one, in its original meaning. In fascism, the state controls the country's main economic production through dictat or strict regulation. In that sense, Obama might be considered by some a fascist. My personal belief is that Obama was not fascist, but fascistic.
    The difference? The suffix "ic" or "ics," from the Greek, meaning "in the manner after," or "in the manner of." A true fascist, like Mussolini , was a dictator, and made no bones about it. Obama could not pretend he was a dictator in the real sense of the word because either the people would not tolerate it, or they would think he was a fool. Therefor he hid behind regulatory agencies and other govt. organs, let them do the work while pretending it was all for the public good.
    Socialism, otoh, is outright ownership of the means of production by the government. Both systems involve totalitarian style governments and usually -- though not always -- harsh control of the people.
    By the way, if it's still available, there is a book called "America's Thirty Years War" by Balint Vazsonyi about these types of government and their applicability to America. Because Vazsonyi is eastern european, and lived under these government systems before coming to America, his book is unusually insightful, and provides a good perspective on America, and all college kiddos should be forced to read this book at gunpoint.
    I strongly recommend it....though I'm unsure if it is still in print.

    From page 1 of this thread...by flock 6 and bambam,


    Today's generation hasn't had to struggle for anything, they don't understand work and reward, they don't know the satisfaction of building something on their own with their own hands, sweat, and blood.
    Dam you are right Flock, how many kids today would sling haybales from daylight to dark for $10 a day like I did ? Wimp a$$ kids don't know the meaning of work, and that is the downfall of this country. Too few workers and too many leeches.
    Yes good points and I agree. When you have to sweat and think things through ...make a decision and commit...not get or maneuver others to commit so that you never really have to commit....you get serious ...and conservative about spending your resources. You also get conservative about committing...without thinking a thing through and thoroughly...when your backside may be on the line. You also tend to remember...and take your learning seriously as well.


    Over the weekend I fabricated two roll up portable antennas for 2 meter and also a dual band/2 meter and 70 CM antenna. I have never before tried to built a dual band roll up or portable antenna. This was constructed out of some extra coaxial antenna cable and the antenna itself was constructed out of that olde twin lead..or FM/TV flat line antenna wire..about some 60 inches of the stuff.

    After fabricating the antenna it was time for trimming and adjusting according to a test meter..a UHF?VHF SWR meter. It took some time to get it trimmed out sufficient and now I have a dual band roll up antenna. Up to now I have only fabricated a single band antenna.
    These are emergency portable antennas. You toss a line up over a tree and hoist them up to desired altitude ..hook them up to your radio..a walkie talkie will do it.


    What I am now attempting is a magnetic base 160 meter mobile antenna. this will necessitate fabricating my own coil and I have never before tried this. But I am willing to have a go at it..and learn from my mistakes.
    I have been researching the materials tonight on line.

    Today I bought a 100 foot roll of 14 gauge solid copper wire and some 3/8 X 24 thread fasteners. Also a 3 foot solid steel rod for which I will be cutting short (about 5 inches) and threading both ends with a die nut again to 3.8 x24 threads per inch.

    A lot of the mechanics I have figured out but the electrical may take some time to research and understand.

    Getting some more materials together for this. I want to know if I can do it....can I solve the problem??

    No one makes a compact 160 meter magnetic base mobile antenna. These antennas tend to be long and bulky. Hoping I can make it a bit shorter.

    This may again improve my language skills ..so to speak...but I have been there before as I am sure so too you folks.



    Last year I broke the mounts on my windscreen on my scooter. Cheap aluminum mounts. I was able to fabricate from steel rod some replacement mounts, drill and tap them...put in new fasteners..paint and install them. Now I am getting some extra miles out of this windscreen instead of having to buy a new one.
    The drilling and tapping skills learned in this shipyard were put to use in this task. These skills, thinking and knowledge did not stay in my locker with my hard hat.
    And no batteries or charger required!! LOL LOL!!

    There are lots of things one can do if one applies ones self.

    U tube helps too!! But that does not allow one not to think a thing through carefully and safely.


    Thanks to all for their posts,

    Wow TommyGun,

    Thanks for that definition and details...etymology. That is the stuff I enjoy when I have time. The historical derivation of words. At times it can really flesh out the details on a topic ..knowing from whence a word came.

    I agree about Obama. He could not get away with it as did many historical dictators. He had to hide and conceal much of his fascist program behind social guilt manipulations...social engineering...and racism/sexism and a plethora of other guilt manipulations on the backs of the unsuspecting people.

    What made all this so obvious to me about his fascism..was the lack of progress in the economic arena. Thinking people are interested in their individual economic prosperity...not social prosperity to where some people have to pay for others and themselves too.
    I realized over and over that this was the best the democrats and Obama can do is hold some people into economic bondage to pay for other people...and call this progress.
    It is bondage..involuntary servitude....some people have to pay twice while others get it without work or risk associated with work.
    That to me is fascist....wealth redistribution. Wealth Redistribution is not Risk Redistribution...which is why it is bondage...involuntary servitude.

    I looked up the title of that book. Thanks for posting it. I am ready for some new reading. This should be someone who knows what they are talking about in this arena...someone who escaped or left Hungary...behind the iron curtain. Someone who remembers and can see it happening here.

    Thanks,
    Orangetom

    Default Google

    So I Google the word facism to see what they have to say. They claim it is right wing government controls........ ummmm.... "right wing" ? No one else includes political parties in their definition, we all know Google is filled with libs. We are seeing history being subtly rewritten. This is all like the lie that only whites can be racist.

    Google is a great REFERENCE source, not the Bible. College kids, with little life experiences, use Google vicariously, dangerous.
