Ron Paul Won’t Endorse Romney, Sees “Essentially No Difference”

Ron Paul, the maverick Texas congressman who has twice run for the Republican presidential nomination, won’t endorse the nominee of his party.

Though Paul said last week it was “very unlikely” he would endorse former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, he made it definitive in an interview October 12 on the CNBC program Futures Now.

We met up with Gary Johnson, former governor of New Mexico and present Libertarian candidate for President. Gary was a former governor of New Mexico. During his two terms in office, of an overwhelmingly Democrat state, he vetoed 750 bills and exercised thousands of line item vetos. He was so effective that his opposition referred to him as Governor Veto. He ran for the Republican nomination this year, but he was kept out of the early debates by CNN and CNBC rules, which were created to keep out minor candidates.

 

 

As a result, he never attained the status of serious candidate as far as the Main Stream Media was concerned.

Obama Desperately Needs Distractions

June 21, 2012 35 comments

……….I’ll tell you something else Obama’s gonna want people to be distracted from. It is becoming apparent as we go through his book and read David Maraniss‘ book about his book, that this guy’s a fraud. That he’s literally made up his life story.

that book, this biography of Obama’s is all about these epiphanies on the road to racial understanding and self-realization and all that gobbledygook left-wing garbage. And at every one of these moments where Obama, as a young child, as a young man, as a growing adult, realizes that reality strikes him and his life is filled with greater understanding, and he moves forward and matures, every one of those events is fraudulent, made up.

There’s even a headline, I think it’s Investor’s Business Daily, asking “Is Obama a Pathological Liar?” So he’s gonna want people distracted from that. He’s gonna want people distracted from the executive privilege. But they’re warning Romney (muttering), “Don’t talk about this executive privilege, bud. You better stick with the economy.” He can do everything! We’ve got plenty of time here. It’s starting to fall apart for Obama. We’re getting closer and closer and closer to Jimmy Carter 2, almost verbatim.

Prison Planet.com » Class Warfare Is Being Used To Divide America – And It Is Working

May 1, 2012 2 comments

At a time when America desperately needs to come together, we are becoming more divided than ever. The mainstream media and most of our politicians love to pit us against one another in dozens of different ways, and right now class warfare has become one of their favorite tools for getting us to hate one another. If you are struggling in this economy, you are being told that “the wealthy” are the cause of your problems.

If you have money, you are being told that the poor hate you and want to tax you into oblivion. Class warfare has already become a dominant theme in the 2012 race for the White House, and there will certainly be endless speeches given along these lines by politicians from both major political parties all the way up to election day. Class warfare will be used by both sides as a way to divide America and get votes.

And the frightening thing is that it is clearly working. There is more hatred between the poor and the wealthy in America today than at any other time that I can remember. But hating people because of how much money they have or don’t have is not going to solve anything. Instead, it is just going to cause more problems.The other day, Yale economics professor Robert Shiller told CNBC that the globe is already in a state of “late Great Depression“.

That write-up, which included the headline, ‘Romney in a Panic’, was picked-up and reprinted by a number of independent news outlets like RT News and The Daily Paul. Wead’s conclusion is based on a number of factors.

First and foremost, Ron Paul continues to win more delegates than Mitt Romney during each state’s respective slating processes. Additionally, the writer points to drastic, last-minute changes to GOP procedure showing an attempt to limit the Paul vote. Some measures include a new poll tax in Washington and robo-calls in New York telling Republican voters that only Mitt Romney remains in the race.What has the GOP power-brokers and their candidate in such a panic?

The American Dream
Friday, November 11, 2011

Over the past couple of months, the mainstream media has been telling us that Mitt Romney, Herman Cain and Rick Perry are the “top tier” candidates and that none of the other Republicans that are running really have a legitimate shot at winning the nomination

Well, if either Romney, Cain or Perry wins the nomination it is going to be an absolute disaster for America.  The United States cannot afford another four years of Barack Obama.  But we cannot afford four years of Romney, Cain or Perry either.  All three of them have deep ties to the establishment, all three of them are clueless about how to fix what is wrong with this country and all three of them would continue most of the failed policies of the Bush/Obama era.  The United States is running out of time, and if we are going to turn things around we need to make fundamental changes right now.  But if either Romney, Cain or Perry wins the nomination we will almost certainly be guaranteed four more years of rapid decline.

One of the great myths of this election season is that Romney, Cain and Perry are conservatives.  Even though all three of them are trying to claim that label, the truth is far from that.  At best, Herman Cain and Rick Perry are political moderates with deep, deep ties to the establishment.  Mitt Romney is so liberal that someone needs to tell him that he is in the wrong political party.

Can Rick Perry Clean Up The Mess He Made For Himself?

November 10, 2011 Leave a comment

As I watched the debate Wednesday night between the eight Republican presidential primary opponents, I was overall pleased, both by the way the candidates handled themselves and by the answers they gave to the myriad of economic questions they were asked. It was a debate that I personally think all Republicans won, and while many like myself may think that Perry is finished, the ultimate loser was CNBC. CNBC lost because they could not make the Republican candidates act like a bunch of toddlers fighting over the only toy in the room.

The moderators tried their best to get any of the candidates to admit that taxes must be raised to save the economy, but to no avail. All the candidates agreed that raising taxes would be the worst move a president could do. Instead they all called for taxes to be cut, spending to be reduced, and various agencies to be eliminated along with repealing Obamacare.

It goes without saying that the most talked about moment in tonight’s CNBC debate in Michigan came when Texas Gov.

Rick Perry had a cringe-worthy meltdown struggling to remember the three government agencies he wanted to eliminate. But there was a telling moment earlier in the evening, when Mitt Romney was asked about his record of taking inconsistent positions, and he responded by citing his long marriage, time at Bain Capital and church membership as evidence of his steadiness.

Perry followed Romney, and didn’t attempt to attack him as a flip-flopper. That was the trend all evening, as Republican rivals refrained from criticizing each other.

Be Honest CNBC-You Are Biased Against Ron Paul

November 10, 2011 1 comment

Those of us who have supported Ron Paul since his presidential run in 2008 (and some who supported him long before that) have come to expect an astonishing array of mainstream media tricks, lies, and censorship when it comes to the “journalistic” examination of the good doctor.

This doesn’t mean, however, that we have ever or will ever come to ACCEPT this consistent trend of deception and disinformation as a forgone conclusion of our political lives.

We will never throw up our hands and walk away from the mess the MSM has deliberately created, because that is exactly what they would like us to do; give up, shut up, go home, vote for Romney (an establishment crony with the creepy grin of a pedophile), and watch him lose to Obama (yet another establishment crony) in 2012.

CNBC Cans Debate Poll Because Ron Paul Was Leading

Network Managing Editor claims having well organized political support constitutes “gaming”

Steve Watson

Prisonplanet.com

November 10, 2011

CNBC pulled an online poll 25 minutes after last night’s GOP debate, reasoning that “one candidate” was leading by a large margin – that candidate was, of course, Ron Paul.

As the following video shows, Ron Paul was ahead of the pack by a large margin, before the poll was unceremoniously pulled from the CNBC site altogether and replaced with a generic article titled “Who won the debate – Attendees weigh in”:

CNBC Managing Editor Allen Wastler issued the following statement explaining the reason the poll was removed:

Gamed Poll…So We Took It Down

We had a poll up from our Republican Presidential Debate asking readers who they thought won. One candidate was leading by such a margin that it became obvious the polling wasn’t so much a reading of our audience, but of the Internet prowess of this particular candidate’s political organization. We have therefore taken the poll down. Yes, we’ve gone through this exercise before.

Wastler included a link to a previous statement from 2007, where exactly the same thing happened.

Cutting Down the Cabinet ~ “GOP contenders are talking like the elimination of entire departments is a foregone conclusion”

Cutting Down the Cabinet

WhiteHouse.gov and others ^ | November 10, 2011 | Pan_Yan

Posted on Thursday, November 10, 2011 11:34:51 AM by Pan_Yan

The big media story from last nights Republican Presidential Primary Debate on CNBC was Governor Perry’s gaffe when he tried listing the departments of the federal government he would eliminate. Maybe lost in the sensationalism is the change in our national politics that this topic represents.

The majority of the GOP contenders are talking like the elimination of entire departments is a foregone conclusion. It might be election year politics, but the idea is immensely popular among conservatives judging by the crowd reactions every time someone in any of the debates has suggested it. Now we all know that a President by himself can not create or abolish an entire department by fiat. A good deal of congressional arm twisting, threats, pandering, pontificating, high horse riding and the obligitory “widows and orphans thrown out into the streets” stories would all accompany any serious attempt to eliminate a federal department. However, it is encouraging that it has become a more broadly accepted theme that in years past.

The existence of the Cabinet dates back to the first American President, George Washington, who appointed a Cabinet of four people (Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson; Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton; Secretary of War Henry Knox; and Attorney General Edmund Randolph) to advise and assist him in his duties. Cabinet officers are nominated by the President and then presented to the United States Senate for confirmation or rejection by a simple majority.

Image via Wikipedia

In a recent CNBC interview the hypocritical Democrat who used to be the Speaker of our House showed us she has apparently sunk down to a point where she can no longer feel embarrassed about anything. Nancy Pelosi is so deeply phony she cannot stop herself from saying things that would embarrass a normal decent person.

During a discussion about Boeing moving its operations from union run Washington State to non union South Carolina Pelosi showed what a hypocrite she is.

Her Phoniness told Maria Batiromo the federal government should give the National Labor Relations Board the authority to shut down private sector businesses that refuse to be forcibly unionized. Since Pelosi is a liberal Democrat, and therefore an enemy of American freedoms, this would ordinarily mean very little. In Pelosi’s case, however, saying such a thing is especially brazen given the way she runs her restaurant chain and winery which are not unionized.

Pelosi is not merely hypocritical in her dealings with the media and Republicans, she is just as phony when dealing with the “little people” on the liberal Democrat plantation. Moreover she gets union leaders to laugh at their rank and file along with her.

August 2, 2011 Leave a comment

Former head of the Government Accountability Office and Comptroller General of the United States, David Walker has issued a stark warning following the compromise deal to raise the debt ceiling.

“We are less than three years away from where Greece had its debt crisis as to where they were from debt to GDP,” Walker highlighted in an interview with CNBC earlier today.

Greece’s ratio of debt to GDP has surpassed 100% and is heading towards 150%, a factor that has meant without bailouts from the EU and the IMF, the country would have defaulted.

The US is now nearing the same 100% margin with GDP growth floundering below 1%.

Obama vs. Obama

July 11, 2011 1 comment

In a 75-minute meeting Sunday night, President Obama once again demanded that more than $1 trillion in tax increases be part of any deficit reduction package attached to a vote on the debt ceiling. In the session, Obama rejected a Republican proposal to seek $2.5 trillion in spending cuts and reforms, and insisted on higher taxes on businesses and wealthy individuals. Barack Obama,

It’s a curious position, given the anemic economic growth and rising unemployment. And it’s even more curious considering that Obama himself has warned about the deleterious effects of raising taxes in a struggling economy.

In August 2009, on a visit to Elkhart, Indiana to tout his stimulus plan, Obama sat down for an interview with NBC’s Chuck Todd, and was conveyed a simple request from Elkhart resident Scott Ferguson: “Explain how raising taxes on anyone during a deep recession is going to help with the economy.”

Obama agreed with Ferguson’s premise – raising taxes in a recession is a bad idea. “First of all, he’s right. Normally, you don’t raise taxes in a recession, which is why we haven’t and why we’ve instead cut taxes. So I guess what I’d say to Scott is – his economics are right. You don’t raise taxes in a recession. We haven’t raised taxes in a recession.”

Todd reminded Obama that he had promised to raise taxes on “some of the wealthiest” Americans.

Obama responded by reiterating his opposition to tax hikes during a recession and making an argument about timing. “We have not proposed a tax hike for the wealthy that would take effect in the middle of a recession. Even the proposals that have come out of Congress – which by the way were different from the proposals I put forward – still wouldn’t kick in until after the recession was over. So he’s absolutely right, the last thing you want to do is raise taxes in the middle of a recession because that would just suck up – take more demand out of the economy and put business further in a hole.”

When Obama warned about the consequences of raising taxes, the economy was moving away from recession—growth in the fourth quarter of 2009 was nearly 6 percent. Today, however, economic growth has slowed to less than 2 percent. Even before the horrible June jobs report, economists were warning about the “substantial” possibility of a double-dip recession. Many others agreed after the news last week. “In addition to the shock value…we need to seriously question whether a double-dip is there,” David Ader, chief treasury strategist at CRT Capital, told CNBC. “I would say it’s back on the table.”

If raising taxes in a recession would be “the last thing you want to do,” wouldn’t raising taxes in a struggling economy teetering on a double-dip be the second last thing you’d want to do?

Obama made a similar argument in December, when he signed the bipartisan tax relief agreement – a deal that maintained Bush tax rates (even for the wealthy) and included additional tax breaks for businesses. “Millions of entrepreneurs who have been waiting to invest in their businesses will receive new tax incentives to help them expand, buy new equipment or make upgrades – freeing up other money to hire new workers.”

If Obama was right and the tax breaks in that deal freed up money for job creators to hire new workers, isn’t the reverse true? Isn’t it the case that new taxes on entrepreneurs and other job creators will leave them with less money to hire new workers? And wouldn’t raising taxes on the “wealthiest” just “put business further in a hole,” as Obama believed just two years ago?

His economics were right. So why the change?

Here we go again—Judgment Day. This time Harold Camping called it for this weekend, May 21. His billboard ads read: “The Bible Guarantees It!” We even heard this mentioned this week on CNBC, of all places. Confused Christians have been calling for the end of the world for a very long time, embarrassing themselves and the rest of Christianity.

Did you know that the Bible does not even mention the end of the physical universe? I’m sure this will come to a shock to Christians who do not know their Bible. So let’s take a look.

Bill Clinton: Create Internet agency

Bill Clinton: Create Internet agency

Bill Clinton doesn’t like all the misinformation and rumors floating on the Internet. And he thinks the United Nations or the U.S. government should create an agency to do something about it.

“It would be a legitimate thing to do,” Clinton said in an interview airing Friday on CNBC.

The agency, Clinton said, would “have to be totally transparent about where the money came from” and would have to be “independent” because “if it’s a government agency in a traditional sense, it would have no credibility whatever, particularly with a lot of the people who are most active on the internet.”

“Let’s say the U.S. did it, it would have to be an independent federal agency that no president could countermand or anything else because people wouldn’t think you were just censoring the news and giving a different falsehood out,” Clinton said.

TRUMP’S “DEAN SCREAM”: The Donald Loses His Cool On CNBC (This is the end of his candidacy)

Donald Trump was just on CNBC responding to allegations over his property dealings made by the New York Times. He blasted the paper for its report, and its reporter for refusing to appear on TV to defend his claims.

The article reports that more than 300 people are suing Trump after he removed his name from properties they purchased. Those involved in the lawsuit allege there was no disclaimer that Trump was not the developer of the properties, but rather just “rented his name” to the actual developers.

Trump ended up going on a multi-minute rant in which he insulted CNBC anchor Simon Hobbs and slammed the New York Times.

Watch the video here. It may be remembered as Trump’s “Dean Scream,” the on-air event that ended Howard Dean‘s presidential campaign in 2004.

0:10 Trump says Mr. Barber (the New York Times reporter) “didn’t have the guts to go on” CNBC.

0:55 Mark Haines, CNBC, points out where the article says “my latest development” is mentioned in promotional materials. Trump rebuffs, saying the document people signed points out that he licensed his name, not that he developed the properties.

3:10 Trump says, “Hello Simon, whoever you are Simon. Simon, the market collapsed, you may not have heard about that. So thousands of buildings all over the United States had difficulties, so you probably heard about that somewhere along the line. That’s what happened Simon.”

4:30 Trump says he did investors “a favor.”

You know Obama’s doublespeak is getting pretty damn bad when a lib like Jon Stewart calls him on it:

[VIDEO AT SITE]

On the heels of this “spending reduction in the tax code” baloney the Standard  Poor credit agency has officially downgraded the outlook for the debt in the United States:

Standard  Poor’s on Monday downgraded the outlook for the United States to negative, saying it believes there’s a risk U.S. policymakers may not reach agreement on how to address the country’s long-term fiscal pressures. “Because the U.S. has, relative to its ‘AAA’ peers, what we consider to be very large budget deficits and rising government indebtedness and the path to addressing these is not clear to us, we have revised our outlook on the long-term rating to negative from stable,” the agency said in a statement.

In an interview with CNBC, David Beers, SP’s global head of sovereign ratings, said the agency has been “struck increasingly by the difference in how other governments are dealing with fiscal consolidation.”

“The U.S. to us looks to be an increasing outlier in that context,” Beers added.

As Kevin Williamson writes, this downgrade isn’t the opening act of our downfall….it’s the fat lady singing: (h/t Nan)

As one investment strategist put it to me this morning: We’ve been watching this train go by for a while now, and this is the caboose. …A little over a year ago, the markets already were telling us that the government’s story about how it is finally going to fix its finances is pure fiction. Yields on U.S. Treasury bonds went higher than those on a number of blue-chip corporate bonds, leading your obedient servant to remark:

[snip]

Stealth tax hikes, no cuts in spending, no more drilling for oil, higher energy costs, higher costs for staples because of those higher energy costs…add these kinds of things together and you have to come to the conclusion that the man isn’t serious about fixing anything.

The man who ignited grassroots opposition to the hideously un-American Big Government policies of President Barack Obama when virtually no one else cared will end his highly rated show on Fox News Channel in December. Glenn Beck and Fox News Channel announced Wednesday they had agreed to let their contract run out. “Glenn intends to transition off his daily program, the third highest rated in all of cable news, later this year,” they said in a joint release.

America owes a debt of gratitude to Glenn Beck. Whatever his foibles, in the dark days of early 2009 as patriotic Americans began to realize that America was (and still is, for that matter) being transformed into a socialist state by the nation’s Community Organizer-in-Chief, Beck was there, exposing and harassing Obama and his cadre of radicals. (Note: Rick Santelli of CNBC also played a big role in fighting Obama but it was Beck who sold the idea to the viewing masses and fomented a glorious rebirth of patriotism.)

Dear Tea Party: Don’t Tread on Me, Either Compares us to the Confederacy

October 29, 2010 Leave a comment

Boston — First, Mazel-Tov “Congratulations”, as my people are fond of saying. It seems like only yesterday that Rick Santelli was having his solitary rant. on CNBC and no national Tea Party even existed yet.Actually, it nearly was yesterday — less than two years ago.

Just wondering, too: now that he’s generally credited with having induced the Tea Party, isn’t Rick Santelli the ultimate “birther?”But now here you are, a strapping young 21-month-old full of fire and suburban seniors about to upend the political landscape this year.

Not too shabby for an amorphous group with no defined leaders but lots of corporate cash. .Truthfully, I give you credit. You were unhappy from the get-go with President Obama and his majority in Congress. And I do mean literally from the get-go: the first “Tea Party” rally was held outside Seattle only a month after Obama took office.What, were you unhappy with his choice of inaugural wear?

12 Polls That Prove That The American People Are Really, Really Pissed Off As Election Day 2010 Approaches

The American Dream [1]
Oct 29, 2010

The American people are mad.  No, check that, they are steaming mad.  In the weeks leading up to the election, poll after poll after poll has shown that the American people are angrier at government than at any other point in modern U.S. history.  American voters have been angry before, but this time it is different.  Instead of being mad at just one political party, the American people are now clearly disgusted with both political parties.  Neither major party has a positive approval rating.  People are sick and tired of the economy being in the tank, they are sick and tired of not being able to get good jobs and they are sick and tired of the nonsense that has been going on in Washington.  Both political parties are busy pointing fingers at each other, but what all the major polls in the weeks leading up to the election clearly show is that the American people are placing the blame on both the Republicans and the Democrats.  In fact, as you will see below, a clear majority of the American people now wish that they could throw every member of Congress out of office and a clear majority of the American people now wish that they had a third political party to vote for.  We have arrived at a point where both political parties have lost the faith of the American people, and where we go from here is anyone’s guess.

Not that the American people have a clear idea of what they actually want.  The truth is that …

Americans Buying Guns In Preparation For Civil Unrest

Interest in purchasing silver and going on food stamps also skyrockets in anticipation of economic collapse

Americans are acquiring guns, silver and going on food stamps at record levels in reaction to the crumbling economy, trends indicative of a fearful public who are struggling financially and preparing for potential mass civil unrest in the aftermath of a total economic collapse.

FBI records and Google Trends research shows that firearms purchases are still at record highs, but that ammunition sales have leveled off, suggesting that a flood of first-time gun owners have rushed to protect themselves from the potential of higher crime and even civil unrest in the event of a widespread financial meltdown.

“That tells us that there are more first-time [gun] buyers coming in to buy firearms and that speaks to your worries about security. They buy a few rounds [of ammunition] first time, but they don’t buy more,” ConvergEx Group Chief Market Strategist Nicholas Colas told CNBC [2].

Interest in silver coins is also surging, with Americans looking for more affordable ways to protect their increasingly devalued dollar savings with many unable to afford soar away gold prices.

“Just two years ago, silver coin sales were on the magnitude of 1 million units a month, now it’s 3 million units a month,” said Colas.

Used car prices have also tailed off, a reflection of shaky confidence in the much heralded “recovery” of the U.S. economy. Meanwhile, Google searches for how to get food stamps have also skyrocketed.

A Failing Presidency and a Broken Party

September 22, 2010 Leave a comment

This heartfelt comment and question the first one President Obama received at a CNBC town hall gathering yesterday, may well become emblematic of the first half at least of the Obama presidency.Ms. Velma Hart — middle class, a wife and the mother of two, a veteran, and an African-American Obama supporter — said this: Quite frankly, I’m exhausted – I’m exhausted of defending you, defending your administration, defending the mantle of change that I voted for, and deeply disappointed with where we are right now.

I have been told that I voted for a man who said was going to change things in a meaningful way for the middle class. I’m one of those people and I’m waiting, sir. I’m waiting. I don’t feel it yet. And I thought while it wouldn’t be in great measure, I’d feel it in some small measure.

I have two children in private school and the financial recession has taken an enormous toll on my family. My husband and I have joked for years that we thought we were well beyond the hot dogs and beans era of our lives, but, quite frankly, it’s starting to knock on our door and ring true that that might be where we’re headed again, and, quite frankly, Mr. President, I need you to answer this honestly.

Is this my new reality?This was a very bad moment for the Obama presidency because it was such an honest and representative one.

Third of Young Netflix Users Cut Cable Dinosaur Media DeathWatch™

September 20, 2010 Leave a comment

An alarming survey by Credit Suisse should serve as a wake up call to the broadcast networks and cable companies that they need to take control of their revenue destiny right now, while they still have some negotiating power.Analysts there found that 37 percent of Netflix subscribers aged 25 to 34 substitute Netflix for pay television.

Almost 30 percent of users between 18 and 24 are using Netflix’s streaming service instead of cable or satellite. The Credit Suisse survey was of about 250 Netflix subscribers.“Netflix’s low cost, subscription streaming service with improving content is our biggest worry and could become ‘good enough’ for consumers with moderate income and TV usage to use as a substitute for pay TV,” said Credit Suisse’s Spencer Wang and a team of analysts, in a 50-page treatise on the entertainment industry.The team downgraded the whole sector to ‘underweight’ from ‘market weight’ because of the oncoming ubiquity of high-speed broadband opening the door for these delivery services

Here’s Why Ford Is Surging And You Need To Take Notice

September 19, 2010 1 comment

Shares of Ford got a boost Thursday from CNBC‘s Jim Cramer, but they certainly didn’t need it.Cramer mentioned them as worthy of being a buy candidate, but this is nothing new. Ford’s stock has been nothing short of remarkable, since December 2008 when it was under $1 per share.

Shares are currently over $12, a remarkable run for a company that many though would need to go into bankruptcy or need government help.Since dropping to under $1, Ford has done everything right. From cutting its massive debt load, getting products out to market, to making the company more competitive on a global scale,

*Ford has certainly stepped on the gas pedal at the right time and never looked back.One can never underestimate goodwill, and Ford has certainly been a beneficiary of it*

*Consumers rewarded Ford by not taking government money, when competitors General Motors and Chrysler did.*

*In tune, consumers bought more Ford products than they did GM or Chrysler to show their appreciation for doing business the right way, and it’s showed*

Ford has continued to gain market share here in the U.S., and is now the 2nd largest automaker in the U.S..Wall Street has been impressed with the turnaround story at Ford, as evidenced by an upgrade at Barclays.This morning, Barclays analyst Brian Johnson upgraded the company to Overweight from Equal Weight, and raised his price target to $16 from $15, citing Ford’s increased earnings power despite slow U.S. sales.

Ford is definitely one of the greatest turnaround stories this country has ever seen, as is a prime example of the “can do” spirit that American manufacturing is famous for.
