Well...it did in 1948. Today, a good many of those jobs have been shipped overseas in search of higher profits as a result of another one of those "ism's."

Capitalism.

The issue isn't "ism's," it's UNRESTRAINED "ism's" of any kind.
That is the truth, sk. That is the truth.

I guess the Consitution of the US must be a different one we use today than the one back then.

Gullible people. Amazing is all I can say.

Lets note. Selling of the country for any -ism. Then talks about how great capitalISM is. Kinda contradictory? One -ism in place of another isn't going to work.

Lets also note "working together" in the end. Not shipping jobs overseas for self interests. Not fighting management for raises. Working together. When was the last time we saw that?

Didn't McCarthyISM start around this time? That was a great big slice of freedom, wasn't it?

Common sense. If people would use it this country would not be on the brink of Socialism.
Do you have any idea the percentage of the economy controlled by the government was when this film was made? More than 4 times what it is today.

We get really nostalgic for a past that never existed.

I'm sure someone here will call the cartoon "racist". Hell, everything else is racist!
