I caught this over at Atlas Shrugs, and thought I’d share it here. The period of time between Pearl Harbor and the end of WW II is rather close to the period of time between the passage of ObamaCare (so we could see what was inside it), and the roll-out of the totally useless (unless you are an identity thief) ObamaCare website. Let take a look at the accomplishments of the Greatest Generation, shall we?
Atlas reader Walt puts it in perspective:
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.
Mind you, all of these accomplishments were made without the aid of computers. Many weapons, such the B-24 Liberator bomber, among others, were designed, tested, and mass manufactured by the thousands, or even tens of thousands, in that shot span of time. Now, contrast that to the totally failed nature of the ObamaCare website.
