Do they teach that to you in school? You know...that cute little way you have about twisting words out of context and making false accusations. You're so cute when you're all slippery and squishy that way.
Please, no sexual advances! I'm the best you'll never have, dearie.

It was an easy thing to do, assume you're jealous the same way you assumed Prescott Bush supported Nazis with this statement:
Nesaie wrote:I said that grampa Bush supported the Nazis and was a bankster.
The only evidence you've provided is that Bush did, in fact, work for a bank that you didn't even bother to name.
Nesaie wrote:I like rich people, they employ me. They employ my boyfriend too. It's called Capitalism, though it ain't quite true Capitalism.
Make up (what's left of) your mind, Nesaie. Either it's capitalism or it's not, pick one and 'be happy'.
Nesaie wrote:But, that's for another discussion. It's also called immigration. My Great-Grandparents immigrated from other Countries. It takes a couple of generations to live the "American Dream" (as Carlin said, it's called the American Dream because you have to be sleeping to believe in it).
(scraping PTFE-lined fudge pan with steel spoon) So, let's get this straight, you're comparing immigration to capitalism? Sorry, that's a serious stretch. I doubt even mael would go that far. Mmm, Teflon-impregnated pecan fudge. Want some?

Probably your Grandma, at least in the logic department.
Nesaie wrote:So, John Deere didn't have dealings with the Nazis? Whewh...that's a relief.
4.1% of John Deere's workforce was German, and that didn't make them Nazi. International Business Machines sold equipment to Germany, and that doesn't make them Nazi. Prescott Bush comprised 14.3% of the Board of Directors of Union Bank, which stopped doing business with Germany as soon as they were told, yet you still insist on claiming Prescott was a Nazi 'supporter'? The same Army-trained Intel officer that fought Germany in WW1 was a Nazi 'supporter'?
But...wait...I may have German ancestry in me.
My Grandmother's maiden name originated in Holland, then moved to Germany and then Denmark and then to the US...Maybe I'm a Nazi because of that????
Not necessarily, but your words indicate it may be the case. Your Uncle Adolf was somewhat of a wordsmith, too.
Nesaie wrote:Never mind, that would be racist to say that. Especially since my Great-Grandfather immigrated before WWI.
Not 'racist', too many people bandy that term about these days. But it might be discriminatory on grounds of national origin, and you don't want to piss off most of the Lone Star State with stupid Nazi remarks.
Nesaie wrote:D'you know, we were only one vote away from speaking German years ago?
Not exactly true but I'll let it 'slide' for the moment. Besides, last I checked we here in the United States of America still don't have a 'national language'.
Nesaie wrote: A lil' trivia for you. Just goes to show how many Germans were here pre-WWI. And the Irish though they were prolific. Heh.
Thanks, I think. And there you go again with that national origin thing. I happen to be part Dutch (a Germanic people), part Irish, part Scotch, part Welsh, part English, part Scandi, and part Cherokee, not necessarily in that order. About the only things I'm not is Jewish, Russian, French or Spanish, though some of that might turn up in the family tree...you never know.
Anyway, my point on your 'Nazi supporter' statement was that there isn't, and wasn't, any evidence whatsoever to indicate Prescott Bush was actually involved in business dealings with Nazi Germany; rather, he worked for a company which might have...and there's no evidence I've seen so far to prove that, either. Therefore, you case against Mr. Bush has more holes in it than a dog-chewed swimming pool net.
