You're hopeless. The Model T begat the Model A, the Model B, the Model 48, etc.
Point is, Ford, followed by the creation of auto unions of the 1930's, establised good wages, which made workers better consumers. In steel, rubber, coal, etc. After the War, it all came together, as workers had the highest relative wages of the postwar era. The reason our economy failed is that average wages went down, after inflation.
All due to people like Reagan, who began the wealth transfer to the already wealthy. When the biggest retailer in America has it's employees on Medicaid and Foodstamps because they don't make enough in salary is why the economy collapsed, something is very wrong.
And you don't get it. No surprise there.
"There's nothing surer,
the rich get rich and the poor get poorer,
in the meantime, in between time, ain't we got fun!"
True then, true now.
U-h-h-h...yoo-hoo!,...Mr. Dufus!.....The Model T was the resultant popular Model AFTER the Model A, B...prototypes and short run productions.

Wiki - Ford Model T: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Model_T

"There were several cars produced or prototyped by Henry Ford from the founding of the company in 1903 until the Model T came along. Although he started with the Model A, there were not 19 production models (A through T); some were only prototypes."

You sure do meander a lot from undocumented opinion BS to undocumented half-truths and back to BS and more half-truths only to settle on Reagan-Bashing and ...low wages led to the economic collapse?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Today, we apparently need pages on pages of Justice Department legalese (“Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen Who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al-Qa’ida or an Associated Force”) to justify killing Americans who have become senior jihadist terrorists and who are trying to kill as many innocent Americans as possible.
Of course, it’s no small irony that the candidate who once railed against the Bush administration’s so-called imperial presidency in the war on terror now finds himself under attack by his own base (and a few on the right) for his “secret” program of targeted killings. However, there is nothing like reality—in this case, the global, nebulous network of al Qaeda and allied terrorists—to bring home to a sitting president his fundamental constitutional responsibility to protect the lives and property of his fellow citizens.

and that would be neo-con headquarters.
want to hear what Republicans congressmen have to say about it?
though you probably don't.
"sonic"
I do not give a rats ass what republican congressman have to say about it. An individual making a decision, a life or death decision, about someone, an American citizen, with whom he disagrees and with out due process is BS. eric holder is a disgrace and if his boss agrees with him and okays it he is worse. In your mind it isfuck the constitution, fuckdue process, if the administration says you are bad, it is good bye, sayanora
happy trails.

As the biggest Bush apologist on this thread, your opinion can't be taken seriously.

Bush lied, Americans died.

The Dems went along with them, but the push from Bush Cheney was enormous, and questioned the patriotism of any who opposed it.

Quit your lying about it. You remember it.

Make no mistake. History will place the blame for the Iraq debacle squarely on Bush.

So why did Canada, Mexico, France, Russia, China, and so many other nations disagree with Bush about an invasion?? It was basically the USA and Britain, the old colonial power. And a few small nations we bought off with military aid.

Congress authorized the war against al Qaeda and its allies. While many details of the drone strikes remain secret, it can hardly be argued that Congress isn’t aware of the program’s existence or the administration’s -general legal justification for it; Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out much the same case for the program last March in a speech at Northwestern University. Nor is it possible for the administration to carry out the--program without congressional authorizations, either by the intelligence or the armed services committees. And as the -confirmation hearings of CIA director nominee John Brennan demonstrate, Congress has always had the ability to dig deeper if it chooses to use its oversight powers. What the critics don’t want to admit is that poll after poll indicates that the American public supports the drone program, and members of Congress, within reason, will reflect that support.

Model T production run 1908-1927

Model A production run 1927-1931

Model B run production 1932-1934

As usual, you're clueless.

You remain as big an idiot as ever.

Nor is it the case that the courts have been ignored. It is impossible to read the white paper, with its citations of court decisions and its criteria for “balancing” state and individual interests based on court decisions, and not conclude that the paper was produced in the shadow of the federal court’s newfound, post-9/11 willingness to review executive branch counterterrorism policies. Shamsi also conveniently ignores the fact that when the ACLU sued the U.S. government over placing Anwar al-Awlaki (the American citizen and radical imam who planned the failed “underwear bomber” attack over Detroit in 2009 and was subsequently killed by a drone strike) on a “kill list,” the federal court dismissed the suit. According to the court, these were policies and decisions the Constitution had left in the hands of the political branches, those “best positioned and most politically accountable for making them.” In short, those opposed to the drone program got their day in court; they just don’t like what the court decided.

None of this means that the administration’s expanded use of drones is above debate. The debate, however, should center on the policy, and not exaggerated claims about the Constitution. Drone strikes can be an appropriate tool of war, but one wonders whether they have increasingly become a substitute for a comprehensive counterterrorism policy. Given the rise of jihadist forces throughout the Middle East and parts of Africa, that’s the discussion we should be having.

Fox News Poll: Majority supports use of drones

Overall, 74 percent of voters approve of using drones to kill a suspected terrorist overseas. That includes majorities of Republicans (80 percent), independents (71 percent) and Democrats (69 percent), as well as both men (78 percent) and women (71 percent).

The level of approval drops from 74 percent to 60 percent, however, if the suspected terrorist is a U.S. citizen.

Even when it comes to drone use on U.S. soil, a 56-percent majority of voters approves of such strikes on a suspected foreign terrorist.

Voters, however, disapprove of drone attacks when they are aimed at a U.S. citizen suspected of being a terrorist on U.S. soil. In those circumstances, by a 50-45 percent margin, voters say no.

In each follow-up scenario, Republicans and men are slightly more approving than Democrats and women -- just like in the overall scenario.

The Senate’s leading champion of filibuster reform called for renewing the effort to weaken the minority’s obstruction power, concluding that a modest rules change enacted in January has failed to discourage Republicans from grinding the chamber to a halt.

In an interview on Wednesday afternoon, Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), the author of a proposal to place more of the burden of sustaining a filibuster on the minority party, including forcing filibustering senators to speak on the floor, echoed remarks by Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) earlier in the day about the need to revisit filibuster reform.

“Senate Republicans have demonstrated that they have absolutely no intention of ending their assault on the ability of the U.S. Senate to function,” Merkley told TPM, saying he had hoped the bipartisan agreement to preserve the 60-vote threshold but remove some obstacles to governing and ease gridlock.“Many of my colleagues are absolutely beside themselves with frustration, and that frustration is rapidly turning to fury.”

Here, let me give you some helpful research on the third early sign of dementia.(Let me guess, you also couldn't follow simple directions to reread what was posted?)"Missing Sarcasm

You may or may not appreciate sarcastic senses of humor, but sarcasm is a part of our culture.“We see it as a nice way to be critical and so we use it constantly, even when we are trying to be nice,” says Rankin, who recently reported study results at the Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Neurology showing that people with both frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Alzheimer’s disease tend to have a harder time picking up on sarcasm."

IOW, does the statement, "EVERYBODY knows that no Fords were built after 1927" seem a simple statement of fact to you? Fess up, you're just another Galty sock, right? That elevator doesn't go all the way to the top even if it might hold three cars...
