"Any man who thinks he can be happy and prosperous by letting the American Government take care of him; better take a closer look at the American Indian."

I can't find anything to prove he did say it. Any suggestions?

That's great advice unless you have 5 kids, no job, no ambition, and smoke weed all day. No worries, Obama will hook you up.

I did skim that!
That's what I mean, the quote is spreading like wildfire but I don't think he said it.

Considering that Ford is known as much for his racism as he is for cars, I'd be surprised if he did say it.

I don't think so either. Nor can I find it attributed to anyone else. It's buried underneath all the RWNJ folks posting it. LOL I can't prove he didn't but I'm kind of doubting it.

Found this on an Amazon thread:

"Any man [or woman] who thinks he [or she] can be happy and prosperous by letting the Government take care of him [or her], better take a closer look at the American soldier"

The American soldier, sailor, or marine lives in a 100 percent socialist world, more so than anybody else in the U.S. They may be born in government hospitals, attend government schools, live in government housing, shop in government stores, get paid by government, retire with a government pension, and get buried in a government cemetery.

So, what do you think? Are our soldiers, sailors, and marines the most miserable people in America? If not, why not?"

LOL

Maybe Snopes will cover it? On the other hand many people on the right say they are biased too.

While I certainly don't think everything on the internet is true, I am getting tired of having to fact check stuff.

I guess a little integrity is to much to ask for.
