US WWII Production


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 functioning web site.

 Thanks Dan !

ObamaCare is a tax.

No matter what a press secretary or a pimped out newsie says, that's the bottom line.

Obama taxes us. Forces participation in a program that does not function. Destroys private insurance. People are walking away from hospitals without care because of HIM and HIS FRAUD. He is literally killing us while he basks on the beach.

The definition of tyrant.

The worst president in my lifetime and I've been around for quite some time. He's topped Jimmy Carter and I prayed no one would be as bad as him.

Have a fabulous day Odie. ☺

LL, and control over every man, woman, and child in this country.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Opie, so, you've been watching huh.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Sandee, I have nothing to add to that.

Scott Way said...

It's like watching the "March of the Lemmings" to the sea. Obuma and his ilk refuse to support REAL MEN.

Euripides said...

Ya gotta love it when Obama - from his taxpayer paid vacation in Hawaii - condemned the Republican party for taking a vacation.

Ron Russell said...

The is little difference between Obama and Putin:
Both are control freaks.
Both are communist, although only one would admit it.
Both are narcissistic.
That said, one is a man's man while the other is a wimp and pussy.

I stole the last image in your post and put it up at Tea Party Cartoons.

The Obama administration is shameful on so many levels. The nonfunctioning website is the least of the problems, just wait until the horror stories with Obamacare start.

You forgot saving China and India from succumbing to Japan, but, yeah, nice to see people finally waking up.

My Dad had it easy with Carter.

Teresa said...

The Obama administration loves spreading misery. This admin is evil. Tyrannical indeed Opus.

I am stealing this

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Scotty, that's because real men scare the crap out of them.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Euripides, He's an Otool.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, Oh, OK.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Ron, everything here is stealable. Because that's how I get most of it myself.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Cube, I believe they have started.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

edutcher, would you mind adding that to your copy? I seem to have run out of room.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Admiral, I'll bet he didn't think so at the time.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Teresa, liberal "Fairness" is bringing everyone down to the lowest common denominator, not raising the lowest upward.

Woodsterman (Odie) said...

Rick, and you should.
