2. Actually Ford did just that
They continued producing civilian cars until February 1942, and it was only after the government requisitioned all the cars they had made in January that the company got the idea that the government was not going to give in.

7. I gotta lay this right at the feet of CONgress.....
..they voted to move our factories and manufacturing lifeblood to China. The dumbest fucking move EVER in the history of our country.

If our leaders from WWII were alive today and saw what our CONgress is doing.. they would say... WTF?

You CAN NOT close the steel mills and the machine shops, then turn around and give super computer technology to an enemy. (China)

Until Americans wake up and hold our eleced leaders accountable for this crime of treason... we are all vulnerable to attack and domnination by China and other countries.

NAFTA gave us the SHAFTA.
