I'm just wondering if it will go under 600 or 900.

Of course, the Abrams, the F-117, and the F-15 were all developed under previous administration's.  He really had nothing to do with any of them

Republicans are so weird and gross.

Like they need another tank in Simi Valley, home of the white cops did nothin' to Rodney King brigade.  In any event, maybe it's no longer Mecca (ha ha ha lol, the irony) for conservatives now that the Florida sinkhole is drawing them in.  Anyway, I fart and say fark off in their general direction.

I went to the Reagan library once when I was in Simi valley to go to a telescope shop, back in the 90s

The swag they sold there was shameless. You could buy anything with Reagan or the presidential seal on it

I have to admit thought that I liked my "presidential frisbee"

They didn't have much in the way of commemorating his secret deals with the iran contras, or his final 3 years of senility in office, but it was entertaining for the gaudiness.

I can only imagine what TFG's library will be like.

All I can say is you better be quick to visit if/when it does open, because on his track record of business it will be foreclosed and shuttered inside a year.

It struck me that Carter caught hell for cancelling the B-1, when he knew the B-2 was still being developed in secret but couldn't talk about it.

This is fitting. It belongs in the archives. The tankers I have heard talk about tanks is that they are pretty much obsolete and fill no role on the modern battleground, similar to airborne infantry. But both have this big culture and ego built around them.

All the presidential library museums have various vehicles.  Reagan's just went overboard with shiny toys, which is apropos for his administration.

"Having seen this tank fight, we're honored to have it displayed here," Gen. James McConville, the Army's chief-of-staff, said.

Wow, I guess the guys in it had nothing to do with it. Or the designers. Or the maintenance crew. Or...

Presidential libraries have museums attached.

In this case, it's an awesome one.

The Dewey decimal system wasn't really named after a person, it was because of all the librarians saying "What dewey do with this book?" over and over again.

Well, nothing I ever did set America on it's long, slow decline towards Trump so I guess you're right.

"arms buildup"

Just like everything in our civilization, the Indians did it first.

Airborne infantry as in paratroopers, or Air Cav with infantry aboard? I'd say both still have a role, but it's not what it used to be.

As for tanks, unless they're already in place, we won't have time to get them positioned. Saddam's biggest fark-up was giving the coalition 6 months to put all the pieces in place. No one is going to make that mistake again.

Taj Mahal in AC had a moving sidewalk to enter, but you had to crawl out.

I went to the Reagan library once. Because it had the very first Air Force One as part of the exhibit and I was in the area. The plane was not impressive. There were a lot of old people there. Admiring the temple to their god. Videos playing about how he built up the armed services. They don't mention that we are still paying all those extra men a pension and health benefits. And that the 600 ship navy is 90% mothballed.
