Fact of the Day: Henry Ford Fast

  1. Henry Ford was certainly an innovator.
    Oh yes - what has happened to Detroit???
    Stuttgart, Germany, still survives.
    But his vehicles - mass produced were never in the same
    class as Mercedes-Benz (Germany) and Rolls Royce (UK).
    Thus my dear Hawaiian, Kay, former teacher of God only knows what (??), is the reason that the oil find in Texas of a recent "Fact of the Day" was so important, and another reason why the USA is scared shitless that the Arabian Peninsula and all that lovely OIL might fall out of the US control.
    Thus the US military might in the Middle East, and I agree
    the thought of ISIL, barstardising the Muslim religion and controlling that area - is darn right scary.
    Yes, dear Kay, how much money did the US contribute to the Nepalese earthquake which virtually flattened Kathmandu, the capital, and other regions of this Himalayan country.
    The amount was pathetic - reason - no bloody oil in Nepal.
    Oh God I will have the "Righteous Bible Bashing Tea Party Mob" baying for my head.
    Keep 'em coming Adam, I'm all for a fight to hope that sense
    for this 2016 Presidential election will find a person of substance.
    Otherwise there may be a "Berlin War" constructed around the USA by nations with sense - won't that be funny????

  6. Henry Ford was certainly a great innovator. It's sad to see how the car industry in the US (and here in Canada too) have taken such a downturn over the decades.
