THANK YOU AMERICA, FOR?

Recommended Posts

How about the Interstate system. Yes, I know that the Germans had the autobahn first, but we as usual took it to a much grander scale. I really couldn't perceive trying to motor around without it.

It was one of Eisenhower's greatest achievements as President. He made it possible for people in Seattle to get to someone in New York, without it taking a month. Also, with the country's push toward suburbia after WWII, there needed to be a way for people to commute from their jobs in the inner cities/downtown areas, to their homes outside that area. Not every city had the benefit of a great mass public transit system like Chicago and New York. Even then though, you parked at the city limits, and then took a train into the city. So you had to get from your home to that parking lot.

You want to thank America for an Italian actor who pretended to be a Native American?

Nothing like driving up the I-15 dodging crazy bastards willing to run you down in the name of getting to work on time... Ahh the old days

It's in reference to post #197 which would make even a fake Native American cry.

LOL, I just read the post you're referring to. Yeah, that was pretty awful. I hope he didn't think I was supposed to be awed by his ITG act.

That's a good one. I've only actually used the I-5 but plan to use more of the Interstate system in the future. Great road system !

By Little Steven Van Zandt:

And the river opens for the righteous, someday

I was walking with my brother

And he wondered what was on my mind

I said what I believe in my soul

It ain't what I see with my eyes

And we can't turn our backs this time

And I ain't no Communist, and I ain't no Capitalist

And I ain't no Socialist

and I sure ain't no Imperialist

And I ain't no Democrat

And I ain't no Republican either

And I only know one party

and it's name is freedom

I am, I am, I am, I am a Patriot
