Spoof, Rogue, Spoof. But, one thing that they shared was ordering most manufacturing plants to cut all non-essential civilian production (cars, even, and etc), order them to only build war machinery and thereby guarantee them insane profits, no competition.I have a family friend who was brought up on a farm in Indiana and was a young teenager when WWII started. His family pride was the stand of walnut trees that lined their long driveway to the farm house.
Not long after the war started a government man went to his parents and said they needed to sell their walnut trees to the government for $50 for each tree and his parents agreed. It would take another twenty years for the new trees to grow like the old ones had been.
Now, he could have gone to court here in the U.S. but at least he would not have been sent off to a concentration camp. But somehow Jacqueau seems to equate America to Hitler's Nazi Germany?!?
I would liken the IRS, EPA and OSHA under Obama to being more like Hitler's Nazis.
Ever heard of Japanese-AMERICAN arrests and containment camps, Rogue? Those people were Americans. Sent to camps, all property and monetary assets seized and NEVER RETURNED. No reparations. Meek apologies 50 years later. Shame on you. Better, or worse yet, we in Canada followed your lead and did the same. Shame on us.
