Here are a few examples of this week’s words that just don’t match what’s right:
“We have known for decades that our survival depends on finding new sources of energy. Yet we import more oil today than ever before.” The first sentence is spot on. The second sentence simply isn’t true. Since 2005, U.S. oil imports have steadily declined from a high of 5 billion barrels per year.
“I believe the nation that invented the automobile cannot walk away from it.” Great line, but wrong. The first “automobile” (a French word) was invented by Frenchman Nicolas Cugnot in 1769. In 1862, French inventor de Rochas built an internal-combustion engine powered car. Karl Benz, a German, was issued the first patent for a “self-powered car” in 1886. Henry Ford was first to mass-produce automobiles — starting in 1913 and he did it without any U.S. government money.
“In the midst of civil war, we laid railroad tracks from one coast to another that spurred commerce and industry.” Not true. Our transcontinental railroad, arguably the greatest engineering feat of the 19th century, began in 1830 and was not completed until 1869 – as a private sector venture. The federal government’s role was limited to “eminent domain” land seizures, authorizing the import of immigrant laborers, guaranteeing private bank loans and approving the actions of administrators in federal Territories.
