    Use to be Can-do People..!

    Dad's Generation

    This was sent to me by a freind of mine. It really puts my Parent's generation into perspective. My Father was a Vought F4U Corsair Fighter pilot during WWII who didn't make it back from the South Pacific and my Mother worked at an ammunition factory called Small Arms in St. Louis, Mo.

    "During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced; 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks. We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

    I find it absolutely amazing that during an almost exact amount of time the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning web site.


    Why anyone would ever vote to put a Liberal/Progressive academic ideolog, who has never run so much as a hotdog stand, at the helm of the World's most important economy, I will never understand. Any street vender could have done better!

    Been wondering about this for the past 6 years. Can't wait till the .... well, nuff said 'less I drag out my soapbox.
    I'd rather be ready 6 months too early than one day too late.

    Oh the crosses we carry. Lazy people will always vote for who will give them the most. Wait until after 8 million immigrants become citizens! Can you say "comrade"? Whoops, got real close to the soapbox there.
    At what point did our government cease to be of the people, by the people, and for the people?

    They can and do. The problem is the imperialistic nature of US foreign policy.
