An observation

Received in an email:
During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft, 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks, 257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks.

We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb, and ultimately conquered Japan and Germany.

It's worth noting that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn't build a web site.
Computer technology = garbage in, garbage out!

Very well put Mr. I'm stealing this.

That's, dare I say, Awesome.

And they paid over 3/4 of a BILLION for a 10 million project that was only 1/3rd complete, full of bugs, and totally insecure.

Very true my friend. But, we must concede that the Obama administration has done a remarkable job destroying the United States of America.

Mr. AOW, I guess you had a pretty rough day recently according to Mrs. AOW.

My best wishes and prayer that it's not a recurring event.

Duck,
Mr. AOW and are both exhausted after the untoward event. I wish that there was someone I could have called to help. But no. We were on our own -- as usual.
