100 sounds scary.   I'm 48 now, so I hope to have at least 30 more years (my Dad passed at 78).    I need to get in better shape, lose weight, eat better...

I made some serious changes including daily working out last year as at 51 I thought about all my grandparents who lived into their late 90's, some physically well and some not so. I want to live life to the fullest so that means a nice Cadillac or other luxury activity auto to drive and my being physically fit.

Working out means I get to eat bigger variety and drink what I want all in moderation.

Rock it! my friends and live a full life.

I usually walk about 5 or 6 miles a day.  100 is a good number for living or driving fast. With luck...I can drive 100 when I am 100.

wow, and here I thought somebody would find it interesting about the old quote of "you can have a model t in any color as long as it's black".  Way to fixate on the 10% of the video that was not about the trivia.

That and folks are being a little sensitive over it just because its about Henry Ford. Yes, Ford deserves are the credit in the world for helping bring the automobileto the masses. He also deserves the blame for being an anti-Semite. Those are just facts and nothing to get all too sensitive over.

And he did a lot of good things as well.

Antisemitism is really scary. I am politically VERY critical of Israel...but I also realize Jewish people have been subject to thousands of years of  antisemitism.

Everybody was an anti-Semite then.  Including us in North America. All of us including those in power that controlled the fate of everybody in Europe. The Brits and the French. 

The Brits and the French knew what Hitler was doing before Sept. 1 1939. 

In fact, Hitler annexed Austria and the Brits and the French did nothing.  March 12th, 1938.

Lets talk about the anti-semitism.

On November the 9th, 1938 for 24 hours,  Germans, yes lets call them Nazis so we Westerners feel better about ourselves and as to not insult Germans either because Nazis were only a subset of Germans because Hitler did not win an election unanimously in 1933, well, they burned down synagogues, vandalized anything relating  to Jewish peoples such as Jewish homes, Jewish business, Jewish schools  and killed close to 100 Jewish peoples. This night was called Kristallnacht.  And what did the Brits and the French do?

NOTHING! 

What did WE do? 

Well, Time Life Man of the year in 1938 was one Adolf Hitler.

Let it be known that Stalin was also killing Jewish people in Soviet Russia before Sept 1, 1939.  What did the Brits and French do? 

NOTHING! 

What did we do?

In 1939, Time Life Man of the year was another fine gentleman named Joseph Stalin. 

If those asshats Brits wanna harp on Henry Ford for being an anti-semite, they should also harp on their political leaders KNOWING allowing Hitler to kill Jews and do nothing because they were "too afraid" to make war again. 

Yet they knew that war was coming regardless because they knew France and themselves started this whirlwind when the Treaty of Versaille was signed on the 28th of June 1919.  But they only put their foot down when Hitler attacked Poland on Sept 1, 1939 and THAT was too close to home, yet all the warning signs were there just a year prior, KNOWING that Hitler had killed Jews and was already sending them to concentration camps well before Sept. 1st 1939...

Its a little hypocritical to point the anti-semitic finger on Henry Ford when the European world was rot with anti-semitism. 

I could go on about how Jewish people wanted to flee Germany just about when Hitler was voted in but France and England REFUSED them...

But Ill just let Kristallnacht set into our thoughts and then Ill let the annexation of Austria settle in as well and how Austrian Jews were rounded up and put into Jewish Ghettos, and Ill let you decide if Henry Ford deserved to be dragged into a faslehood of dumb ass Brits talking casually about cars yet wanted to make it political and yet, these asshats are Brits, Neville Chamberlain was the one who could have really prevented anti-semitism to spread... but wanted to make a point about an American businessman being anti-semitic yet its in the Brits and the French and the Russian world that anti-semitism was created and flourished and spread around the world, including Henry Ford's world...but its in Britain and France that this started in...
