    Moderator's Warning:
    Nazis Helped Get Us To The Moon. The Reagan White House Helped Keep Them [W:182]Let's knock off the personal attacks and overt over the top baiting.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    We're not even talking about the holocaust though, so what's the point of this crappy attempt to derail the conversation?

    No derailment at all. We're talking about Nazi war criminals being allowed into this country after the war with apparently the willing cooperation of the US Government. You do understand that A) the holocaust was a war crime, and B) the Nazis did it, right? Because apparently other people on this forum don't.

    We are talking about letting nazis in. Operation paper clip. Not the holocaust. Again. All you seem hell bent on doing is calling people neo Nazis. You haven't even provided a shred of evidence that anyone has been pro nazi. Not a single quote.

    People know that bringing nazis back was important to our space program. When you steal information...you use it.

    The operation to co-opt German scientists for the US space program (Operation Paperclip) spanned the administrations of Democrats and Republicans alike. It was originally authorized by Pres. Truman, a Democrat. To try to pin that on Republicans is hyper-partisan ignorance and stupidity.

    Which President was it who said the US would land a man on the moon? With a rocket that started as an idea in Germany, of course. (The Saturn V, the forerunners of which were originally meant to be intercontinental missiles, but this never got past the dream stage during the war. It was what the 700 or so German rocket scientists had in their heads when they joined the American rocket program.)

    Germany had allot to do with their own defeat by the Russians and the US and Britain.

    They chose to march East into a horrible Soviet winter.

    The Germans couldn't maintain their supply lines and got bogged down in the Russian Snow.

    When they got to Stalingrad the whole German 6th army was surrounded and eventually decimated.

    Had Hitler not made such a foolish blunder there's no telling what would have happened.

    So giving the Russians credit is fine but they just capitalized on a German blunder that may have sealed their fate.
