Ford also admired Josef Stalin and helped him build Tractor Plants and Farm Machinery Plants. A Capitalist actually helping out a mass murdering Communist. Weird.
Ford was self-serving, of course, and in the process pursued the American Dream. But he had some really screwed up ideas, too. I recall reading about how he twisted the arms of all his employees by telling them how to live, what to eat, how to dress, what to read, to such an extent that people actually thought he was off his rocker.
He also started up a Dearborn Newspaper that was Anti-Semitic and racially biased against blacks. After a number of years of heavy criticism, he was forced to close the paper.
He was a weird guy. A simple mechanic who became powerful and had some bizzare ideas. Definitely didn't like Jews. I think from personal business experience. I don't know that it was inbred to him.

In 1920's, the USA was instrumental in providing aid to a severe Russian famine, largely due to soviet mismanagement.

But we helped, and I think that's when Ford and others invested in the newly formed USSR, Ford built great tractors at the time, needed to help solve the famine!!

America was loved by soviet peasants who got grain in American grain bags, and turned the bags into clothing.

There's a PBS special on it.

Who would you trust to evaluate if our Army is defense ready but a group of people who are aware of military readiness?
The law made the group bi-partisan, appointed by Sec of Defense--Hagel, and report to Congress directly. Cannot do much more to create a nonpartisan committee.
non partisan but all part of the military-industrial-congressio nal complex.

how bout some analysts from outside that group?

again, when has the military ever said they needed less, or even had enough money? the answer to this report should be for the militaryt o et more efficient. every member of the military i know talks about the incredible amount of waste and redundancy they have. time to trimt eh fat.

Bi partisan means twice as partisan.

They're all wolves looking at a sheep.

The taxpayer being the sheep.

I agree we need a strong defense. We candisagree on what that means.

I don't know why we're paying for Israel's defense.

We just handed over our armaments stored in Isreal. Do you really think they will pay a dime for it??

They're looking for an International effort to fund the rebuilding of Gaza, when it was them who blew it all up!!

Talk about Chutzpah!!

Why is that??
Yeah

The Wall Street Journal editorial page
excoriated Republicans on Saturday for positioning themselves as the party of maximum deportations.
House Republicans late Friday night had succeeded in passing two immigration bills -- one measure that would strip protections from the young undocumented immigrants known as Dreamers and a funding bill meant to address the influx of 57,500 unaccompanied minors who have crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Republican leaders pulled a previous funding bill on Thursday, the last scheduled day before the House's August recess, due to objections from conservatives that it didn't go far enough.
The Journal's sharply worded op-ed scolded the GOP "Deportation Caucus" for putting on a "screaming match on the floor in full view of the national media" and lamented the party's message to minorities ahead of the midterm elections.
lol! It's amazing what reich wingers can do when they work all by themselves with no cooperation from anyone!

That must be their idea of 'working across the aisle!!!'

There is a possible way out of the broken correlation between Productivity and Employment that Wooddick alludes to and one way is with new industries. Video Games are a billion dollar industry that wasn't even there not so long ago. Carbon nano-tech is exploding in all fields. ALL.
Build it and they will come.
But the possibility of increasing industries popping up like mushrooms on a dung pile could be wishful thinking. How many "new" industries can we expect in a reasonable amount of time to stem the flow of unemployment? Open question.
Labor-Intensive Manufacturing or Creation is a dying idea. Computers can write software and perhaps will soon replace Air Traffic Controllers and Autoworkers.
The world needs the human mind more than it needs the human body. This has never occurred before in history.
Of course, if we're talking about niches like prostitution....

Look senseless. The end of hostilities ALWAYS brings a new directive from the government — your services are no longer needed.

This is merely the latest in a long history of drawdowns, going back to the American Revolution,
which "restructures, repositions and reduces U.S. military forces after each major conflict." Live with it.

Ms. Pelosi, meet the ¨divine¨ Jonathan DelCarmen

Jonathan DelCarmen sounds like the kind of person Nancy Pelosi wants America to welcome and support. After all, he came to this country illegally as a child, at the tender age of 12. According to the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, he might well be the next Moses or Jesus.

***

A 19-year-old charged with murder in connection with last week's fatal assault on a USC graduate student told immigration officials that he entered the country illegally about seven years ago, a federal official said.

The official, who was not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, said Jonathan DelCarmen made the comments during an interview at a Los Angeles County jail where he is being held in connection with the death of Xinran Ji, 24.

Ji or DelCarmen?

Coming here to sponge off taxpayers versus coming here to improve a brilliant mind, why we should make no distinctions. And coming here from a society where they don’t know how to use toilets versus coming here as a college graduate, why they’re all the same, Nancy and her friends would have us believe.

Canada, which is much admired by people who love to hate America, is highly selective about who it lets in as immigrants. I am all in favor of welcoming ediucated, productive epole like the late Mr. Ji.

Call me a racist if you will, but I don’t want any more violent, uneducated, and parasitical people coming here. Period. People like Mr. Ji are more than welcome.

Typical liberal -- favoring a meek, weak, toothless U.S..

Less money for the national defense = more for the parasites like Pajama Boy, Julia, and those illegally crossing our borders.

How would anybody outside of the military or knowledgeable about defense know about necessary levels?

Nobody is saying there isn't waste, but inadequate levels is irresponsible.

The sheep benefit from adequate defense. A country reluctant to defend itself has little value.

Now you are trying to mixed the defense budget with the State Dept. Two different issues

What are you mumbling about? We are discussing the Panels review that states Obama's planned budget is inadequate. Nothing to do with downsizing after a war but cuts that go too far.

Senseless, this is the issue

Cruz’s Outdated and Cynical Foreign Policy

Cruz is unfortunately all too typical of contemporary Republican hawks in that he wants to reproduce policies and ideas that haven’t been relevant for more than twenty years and rely on arguments that have little or no bearing on the contemporary world.
