Could say the same for a map and compass.    ;D

I guess they are doing all that stuff digitally with computers and satellites, as with GPS.
Might come in handy some day to know the old ways.

Yep. The day right after China and Russia join forces and drop about 10 EMP bombs across this country.
The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

Yeah, as if.
More like when the next solar flare erupts.
It's a hell of a lot more likely.
I'm the NRA, and I ain't giving up squat.

Solar flair is more likely but I can see China bombing us. They want to be (and probably are) the big boys on the block as far as their military goes. (IMHO)

Those ancient , 20th century concepts of war no longer apply.
No body uses bombs any more except on 3rd worlders.
Get your head out of the 1940's.

Hell, we ain't too far down the road from being a third world country the way it's going.

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

I can see Iran attacking with an EMP weapon.  It is a cornerpiece of their doctrine to "nuke" us with an EMP device.  They have tested their SCUD's and detonated them in the "Goldilocks zone" for Compton scattering effects.  10 to 15 years ago, they were launching SCUD's from ships and having those "failures" that caused them to detonate. 

An EMP bomb is also known as a neutron bomb.  One over Kansas would do it.  Launch from a container ship in the Gulf of Mexico or...from a dock in New Orleans or Houston.  Very little time to react....for the Bozo's we have running things they would probably wait for the evening news (which won't be on...) to opine on the issue before doing anything. 

Which reminds me...I still need one of those year 2000 or so Dodge diesels that was all mechanical and therefore EMP proof.  We now have a couple of grass burners to ride, but a EMP proof diesel would be very useful.

A pre electronic ignition gas engine would work too.Probably pre 1973 and older would work, and a lot easier to work on if needed.

They would be good but I'm worried about longer term because gasoline sours and evaporates.  For a longer term solution I like diesel because it doesn't rot like gas.  Of course the grass burners we have are the ultimate answer...I guess I need a horse drawn plow too.   

Hey Tom, I know a few years ago you had a pacemaker that was affected by cell phones, etc.  Did you get that changed out?
