“I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history.

If you remember the plot of the Sound of Music, the Von Trapp family escaped over the Alps rather than submit to the Nazis. Kitty wasn’t so lucky. Her family chose to stay in her native Austria. She was 10 years old, but bright and aware. And she was watching.

“We elected him by a landslide – 98 percent of the vote,” she recalls.

She wasn’t old enough to vote in 1938 – approaching her 11th birthday. But she remembers.

“Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.”

No so.

Hitler is welcomed to Austria

“In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25 percent inflation and 25 percent bank loan interest rates.

Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn’t want to work; there simply weren’t any jobs.

“My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people – about 30 daily.’

“We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany, where Hitler had been in power since 1933.” she recalls. “We had been told that they didn’t have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living.

“Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group – Jewish or...Continue Reading

AUGUST 28, 2014

The writer of this letter is still an active US Army Special Forces member therefore, his name is being withheld. However, his opinion is the farthest thing from being held back-

“To the political leaders of America,

I write to you today regarding my concerns about the current state in which we find our beloved planet and your efforts in resolving the many issues we face.

Over the last decade, we have managed to allow our mighty position at the head of the table to dwindle down to a seat at the kids table, with our counsel being received as if it were that of a child making a suggestion on how to cure the world of evil: everyone thinks it is adorable, but no one takes it seriously.

Understanding that you have the attention span of indigenous forces undergoing rifle training, I give you the options of either reading this letter in its entirety or simply skipping to the last two paragraphs.

Sadly, you neither get the reference about indigenous forces (ask your college educated SMEs and think tanks) nor are you capable of making a decision on what to do next. Go ahead and post a tweet asking for thoughts/advice and hashtag this out with the others. #hashtaggingworldproblemsisabsurd #noseriouslystopit #itisridiculousandembarrassing You have time, this letter will still be here.

Sept. 24, 2001 Robbie and Dad build a Go Kart

Today is Monday the 24th of Sept. 2001, and we have agreed that Robbie will help in restoring my original go kart. We discussed it with Mom and he has decided that he wants to be involved in the entire restoration from the first nut and bolt all the way through to driving it away! ( I had wanted this all along and am very happy that he wants it too!). We loaded the frame and some misc. items and took off to Bug Eng. to ask Tommy Pierson if he remembers the frame, and if it’s one of his. He said it was “very close to the early Bug karts, but no, it’s not one of mine”. He DID say that the orig. steering wheel was one of his though.

Sept. 30,2001…..we found a good, rebuildable 5hp Briggs at Evans Lawnmower today. We haven’t decided on weather or not to use it or keep looking for a period correct McCulloch of some displacement. We have also decided that the kart will be green.

Oct. 7, 2001……Have decided to definitely build the Briggs motor. The block is back at Evans having the valves freshened and have ordered everthing else needed to freshen the rest of it. Upon dissaembling the block, we found all the specs to be WELL within limits. This is a koolbore engine with full bushings.
I made a deal with John Evans to repair two mopeds he has in his shop in exchange for the parts and labor in rebuilding the 5 horse. I also bought two new rear tires for it today. We haven’t started assembling anything on the chassis yet,...Continue Reading

Hi, thanks for the kudos........no real magic, just a bunch of videos with the plane either too high or too low in the frame....LOL.
The cam is just velcro'd to the hat brim, I have heard of guys attching the cam to the side of the glasses at near eye level...sounds like it would work well enough.

Trial and error

BTW...the red connector is soldered to the battery so I can be positive of it's charge condition. I just use my regular lipo charger set for a single cell, it'll go past an hour on a charge
