Europeans (and others) like to argue that Americas contributions to winning World War II were not as substantial as the Russians because the Russians lost so many men. What they don’t like to talk about is the tactics employed by the Russians. Sending five boys carrying one rifle between them straight forward into enemy machine guns. That’s going to produce a hell of a lot of casualties.
They also like to say that without Russia, the Allies would have lost. Germany would have won. Why? Because all of those Russian Divisions held busy 100 or so German Divisions. But who supplied all of those Russian Divisions who were fighting those 100 German Divisions?
Roosevelt had to trick the American people into joining the War by allowing the Japanese to sink half the fleet at Pearl Harbor and then trumping the losses up as if it were a a crushing blow to our Navy. Amazing that those Aircraft Carriers were conveniently out of the way during the attack.
And that blonde girl Natalie Holloway story is back. I feel for the girls family but why is this national news. A rich girl went to Aruba and was murdered because she couldn’t get enough of the bad boys who in this case kinda look like violent nerds from the black trench coat Columbine generation.
If this were an Asian chic who was barely making ends meet and got herself killed, would FOX run the story non-stop. I don’t think so.
The real news is the economy. But even there they go on and on and on. Droning until you can’t take it anymore. GM, Chrysler and Ford. I own stock in Ford and I think that they will make it through all of this. But if they can’t survive without a bail out, they should not survive. Let them die. They’ve refused to come to terms with the new world. If they can’t do so, they deserve to die. I’ve read that Ford is releasing a hybrid in Europe. Why not release it in America? Lots of people in America who are now hybrid friendly. They should all three be jumping on the hydrogen bandwagon before they get left behind there as well. I don’t know if the Unions should be busted or not. But the Unions need to get out of the way of progress and let these companies adapt. No one deserves a free ride.
Obama is saying the right things right now. I’m on a wait and see pattern with Obama. I don’t know if I can compare the guy to Lincoln or FDR just yet. He’s done nothing. But neither had LIncoln when he came to the the White House.
I’m not committed to the Christian agenda. So I am not as adamantly against him. The gay agenda is silly to me. But I have no dog in that fight. Parents raise your children and give them your example to follow. They’ll do the right thing. Hedging your bets by railing against others isn’t going to keep your child from being gay. I don’t know what will keep them from being gay but I’m certain that the gay marriage issue is not the thing that will prevent it. Marriage is a joke approximately 50% of the time anyway. Marriage protection act. Sure. I’m not buying it. It’s the “Christian Abomination Act.” Christians pushing their agenda one way and homosexuals pushing in the opposite direction. Get out of each others way and live your lives as you see fit. I’m tired of hearing both sides of this idiotic argument.
Don’t even get me started on abortion.
Make your own choices and live with them. If you can’t live with them, stay home.
