re: Cliffs on Remington bankruptcy - Cossatotjoe
Private equity firm bought them and loaded them up with debt. They had so much debt, it didn’t matter how much they sold. Now, the equity firm didn’t really care and they weren’t run real well, but it wouldn’t have mattered how much they sold. They were going to go under. If you’ve ever watche...

[quote]Forget the golf maker (McGregor?) but basically his best driver was made for Byron Nelson. Byron didn't like it and gave it to Hogan. Found it interesting bc basically Ben Hogan was getting hand me down clubs. Sounded like he didn't even have relationship with club manufacturer. [/quote] ...

re: The Gettysburg Battlefield "Then and Now" - Cossatotjoe
Most places in the east were probably less forested around the time of the civil war than they are now. Pretty simple really. Every house had a stove or two and a fireplace or two. Trees around any settlement got scarce pretty quick. There were no tree lined neighborhoods. When you needed to ...

re: Greater Evil, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia - Cossatotjoe
[quote] Useful? The Soviets lose the war without lend lease. Khrushchev said it himself. Steel, aluminum, copper. Gunpowder. Basic foodstuffs. Canned rations. Boots, clothing. Trains, trucks, motorcycles. Tanks and aircraft. We kept the Soviet Union fed, we kept thei...

re: Greater Evil, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia - Cossatotjoe
[quote] The real reason is the UK cannot stand the idea of a continental power becoming too strong. They nearly drove their economy to ruin financing coalition after coalition to defeat Napoleon and made a deal with the devil to defeat Hitler. The idea that in 1941 anyone in the west cared abou...

re: Greater Evil, Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia - Cossatotjoe
[quote] Then why couldn’t they defend themselves against Hitler? And why did they need all the supplies from the USA? If it wasn’t for the horrible winter, and the scorched earth retreat, the Germans would have easily conquered that “largest and best equipped” army.[/quote] I guess you didn’t re...

[quote]The Germans failures were strategic not operational or tactical. The Ostheer simply did not have the manpower or resources to meet the goals of Barbarossa, Typhoon, Case Blue or Citadel. [/quote] Exactly. It just couldn’t be done and capturing Moscow would have done nothing more for them...

[quote] 2 different winters. The winter of 1941 was a disaster...yes, but the summer offensive of 1942 still could have encircled stalingrad and completely cut off the caucasus which would have cut the Baku oil field supply off. Without that oil, the soviets are kind of fricked.[/quote] I knew...

re: Dershowitz Lays Out Upcoming Impeachment Trial & What Will Follow The Result - Cossatotjoe
Reminds me a lot of the closing days of the Roman republic where consuls and governors had legal immunity while in office but as soon as they got out of office, their political enemies would bring private prosecutions to exile or even execute them sometimes. Eventually, when informed this fate aw...

[quote]This a personal bugbear, but the Soviet Union, not Russia. It’s not the same thing.[/quote] Okay, in 1941 there were almost no paved roads in the area of the Soviet Union between the frontiers of Eastern Poland and Moscow, which is conventionally defined as that part of the Soviet Union c...

[quote]do we have a holocaust denier in our midst? But about the Red Army... they were not the best army in the world in 1941...far from it. They were the biggest. But in terms of elite troops, there were very few. Stalin purged damn near every officer in their army before their attack...

[quote] They relied heavily on horses, and were still living off the land in 1945, as they pushed into Germany, despite the massive amount of aid we sent them. [/quote] So did the Germans. But, the main reason they relied on horses is because, as the Germans discovered, there were no roads in 1...
