Here’s a little fact for automotive buffs, or just to dazzle your friends.
The four Goldberg brothers, Lowell, Norman, Hiram, and Maxwell, invented and developed the first automobile air-conditioner. On July 17, 1946 , the temperature in Detroit was 97 F degrees.
The four brothers walked into old man Henry Ford’s office and sweet-talked his secretary into telling him that four gentlemen were there with the most exciting innovation in the auto industry since the electric starter.
Henry was curious and invited them into his office.
They refused and instead asked that he come out to the parking lot to their car.
They persuaded him to get into the car, which was about 130 F degrees inside, turned on the air conditioner, and cooled the car off almost immediately.
The old man got very excited and invited them back to the office, where he offered them $3 million for the patent.
The brothers refused, saying they would settle for $2 million, but they wanted the recognition by having a label, ‘The Goldberg Air-Conditioner,’ on the dashboard of each car in which it was installed.
There was no way that Old man Ford was going to put the Goldberg’s name on two million Fords.
They haggled back and forth for about two hours and finally agreed on $4 million and that just their first names would be shown.
And so to this day, all Ford air conditioners show —
Lo, Norm, Hi, and Max — on the controls.
Control yourself !
Just forward it on!!

This is too funny. The Sphinx uses the Fredo clip all the time, to show betrayal and incompetence. Most of the Democratic leaders show these traits toward America.
The Kongers are still fighting for freedom from the Chinese. They use American Flags, that the Democrats won’t fly at their functions, to emphasize their dreams of freedom.

Just Call Me Crazy Cat: They whole deal smells like a Democratic political operation. I don’t believe Oswald killed JFK, either. The first article is very long. I don’t believe anything the government says without verifying it. The FIX is in.
Here are some recent events that cause me to wonder who benefits.
The Democrat news media is responsible for reporting the lies.
Too many times they are just stupid or wrong.

Saturn Behind the Moon

Explanation: What’s that next to the Moon? Saturn. In its monthly trip around the Earth — and hence Earth’s sky — our Moon passed nearly in front of Sun-orbiting Saturn earlier this week. Actually the Moon passed directly in front of Saturn from the viewpoints of a wide swath of Earth’s Southern Hemisphere. The featured image from Sydney, Australia captured the pair a few minutes before the eclipse. The image was a single shot lasting only 1/500th of a second, later processed to better highlight both the Moon and Saturn. Since Saturn is nearly opposite the Sun, it can be seen nearly the entire night, starting at sunset, toward the south and east. The gibbous Moon was also nearly opposite the Sun, and so also visible nearly the entire night — it will be full tomorrow night. The Moon will occult Saturn again during every lap it makes around the Earth this year.

The Deplorable Infidel
“I studied the Koran a great deal. I came away from that study with the conviction there have been few religions in the world as deadly to men as that of Mohammed. So far as I can see, it is the principle cause of the decadence so visible today in the Muslim world and, though less absurd than the polytheism of old, its social and political tendencies are in my opinion to be feared, and I therefore regard it as a form of decadence rather than a form of progress in relation to paganism itself.
Mohammed brought down from Heaven and put into the Koran not religious doctrines only, but political maxims, criminal and evil laws, and scientific theories. The Gospels, on the other hand deal only with the general relations between man and God and between man and man. Beyond that, they teach nothing and do not oblige people to believe anything. That alone, among a thousand reasons, is enough to show that Islam will not be able to hold its power long in an age of enlightenment and democracy, while Christianity is destined to reign in such age, as in all others.”
Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859), A French social philosopher and author of Democracy in America.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INFIDEL
Dolly Parton was born January 19, 1946, in a one-room cabin on the banks of the Little Pigeon River in Pittman Center, Tennessee. She was the fourth of 12 children born to parents that were virtually penniless. Today, Dolly Parton is worth $500 million. Ok Bernie, let’s see this be accomplished under your socialism. And let’s not forget Sam Walton. In 1945, he used a $25,000 loan from his father-in-law to acquire his first store, a Ben Franklin franchise in Newport, Arkansas. Now, Walmart has become the world’s largest retailer. The government can’t run the post office or Amtrak, they both are bankrupt, and is in debt to the tune of over $22 trillion. So Bernie, how do you expect Uncle Sam to provide healthcare to 320 million people? “Give me capitalism or give me death”, as Patrick Henry might say. So Bernie, why don’t you just take your socialism and put it where the sun don’t shine.
