During the 3 1/2 years of World War II 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, 34,000,000 tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3 million machine guns and 2 1/2 million 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.

It is worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time the Obama administration couldn't build a functioning website.

The people that accomplished those feats are gone now. I don't know if we, the children of that "Greatest Generation" have the same 'gumption' that took. It seems to me that each generation has less and less true patriotism and backbone. It's evident that people who vote democrat don't want the same things that our WWII heroes fought for--Liberty and Prosperity for Americans. The survival instinct has been replaced by the 'Gimme' instinct. Envy of the 'Rich', and gullibility have put us in a bad place.

Don't you get it? It was never intended to work, certainly not right away. And it wasn't inconpidence; everything is orchestrated. It requiring the young people to purchase it in order to work tells you right there it was never intended to work, considering young people don't feel they need lt. And what you think that was all about having someone totally out of the country designed the web sight at a totally ridiculous absorbetent price.

Just to interject a thought. Human nature has been the same since the fall in the Garden. The seemingly lack of interest, apathy, and appreciation by both young and old is nothing new.

If you recall when Israel escaped from Egypt, the first thing the faced was an obstacle called the Red Sea. The Egyptian Army was behind them, mountains on both sides, the Red Sea in front. Trapped like rats in a sewer pipe.

God told Moses to stretch out the rod he carried, the Sea parted, they walked across dry land. The Egyptian Army followed but was swallowed and drown. What a Victory :!: :!: :!: :!: Right :?: :?: :?: Yeah for 3 days. Then they griped because the water was bad. The problem is not just an American problem, it is a human nature problem, called, "What have you done for me today?"

What Gimme instinct. What envy of the rich. what gullibility. You people sound like a bunch paranoid schitzophrenics that feed of of each other you're all nuts. The folks that achieved all of the above were NEW DEAL Democrats. Where that party screwed up was when they abandoned their base and began trying to be like republicans in the 1970's so what we have is 40 years of moving to the right and the result is what we see. a F***ed up country

Your post makes no sense. Who was responsible for the change? The real change came to the Democrat party when they began to endorse any and all kinds of special interest groups. They became the party of tolerance this is good, Right :?: :?: Wrong. When you embrace Political Correctness you began to call good evil and evil good. You folks have caused the confusion in America.

"What envy of the rich"


You are now calling it income inequality, same thing as envy. They have it. You want it without working for it, not you specifically.
