America; Some Points to Ponder regarding *The Way We Were*
I found this post on Facebook and knew I had to share it. Please read it all the way to the end, the last three paragraphs speak volumes. There was NO title so I used one of my own.
Here are some interesting facts for my friends and fellow history buffs: 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 People of the U.S.A.” produced the following:
22 aircraft carriers,
420 destroyer escorts,
34 million tons of merchant ships,
100,000 fighter aircraft,
24,000 transport aircraft,
58,000 training aircraft,
257,000 artillery pieces,
3,000,000 machine guns,
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.
It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama Administration couldn’t even build a web site that worked.
Now it’s time for *the adults* to take this nation back, not Democrats, not Republicans, but ADULT Americans, God fearing, family oriented Conservatives that, unlike the vast majority of those in Washington D.C. place this nation before their personal gain and Party loyalty.
Don’t you believe it’s time for America to return to the values we had when we WON WWII and made the USA the most powerful, admired and yes, feared nation on the face of this earth?
