The Last Victory in Old America

They knew how to win wars in Old America. It might not have been politically correct, but they identified their enemies, went to where their enemies were, and destroyed the ability of those enemies to wage war. What happened at the end of that process was known as victory.

Here’s video from the celebration of the last victory the United States ever achieved. Set the wayback machine for August 14th, 1945. The place is the U.S. Territory of Hawaii.

Looking To The Future in 1967

Here’s Walter Cronkite reporting on what the future of phones, televisions, and computers will be in the 21st Century.

Not a bad set of predictions, although it would have been hard to see how small some of the tech was going to get. As he gets to the home security system, you can see the product logo. This equipment was made by Philco. Philco made batteries, radios, televisions, air conditioners, computers, refrigerators, test equipment, and more. Here’s the history of the company. By the turn of the century Walter was predicting, Philco was gone. The electronic news, stock quotes, miniaturized telephones, computers, and printers were coming alright, but they would not be made in America.

Children and Guns

Just the thing for the development of our youth! Prevents juvenile delinquency! Important for the future of our country!

That’s what they believed, once upon a time, in Old America.
