12. Haven't you heard

"History is more or less bunk. It's tradition. We don't want tradition. We want to live in the present, and the only history that is worth a tinker's damn is the history that we make today." (Chicago Tribune, 1916).

oh, and this brilliant piece of early American corporatist power of positive thinking clap-trap:

"If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right."

So, apparently, we thought we could in Afghanistan. So, if we thought we could, but we can't and haven't...gosh, Ford was so wise. What a wise man. He mass produces cars and he thinks he knows everything about everything else.

Good old Ford. That can-do, bully bully, right-o, sally-forth American attitude. Makes me wanna puke in my Cheerios.
