    What year were those photos of Cruisin' Van Nuys Blvd taken - like 1979 or so? Guessing from the car styles and gas prices.

    I get sick to my stomach thinking of what fabulous wealth and treasure the US had 40-60 years ago and how it's been flushed down the toilet.

    I searched for images taken in the 70s, which is when I was in high school.

    I used to enjoy riding my old banana-seat bicycle when I was a youngster.

    I got a turquoise one with a solid rubber front tire at a garage sale for $10. I hated that thing. My neighbors had a long concrete driveway. If you got the front tire in an expansion joint it was 50/50 if you were turning out of it or wiping out. That and the solid feel of the road cured me from ever wanting a Hardtail for sure.

    I visited my hometown this weekend and we went to the local history museum. It is truly sad how our manufacturing base has been hollowed out and the loss of our inventive engineering skills. China won a war without firing a shot. We are suckers.

    Better add NAFTA to that equation. But yeah, we gutted our own manufacturing infrastructure to the point we produce almost nothing. That it is now cheaper to float steel from China than it is to simply make it in Pittsburgh is too offensive to contemplate. The Clinton lie that if we "send jobs to Mexico, illegals will stop coming here" has also been soundly disproven.
