1959 Betty White commercials:

As a bonus, I'm including a segment on NAZI television from 1935. As Operation Paperclip revealed, the NAZI's were light years ahead of the rest of the world in certain areas of technology. German TV in 1935 used more sophisticated equipment than American TV of the early 1950's.

Well now, isn't that a clever way to include a "bonus" propaganda film ?

Fucking jerk.

It's the tech, not the propaganda.

"It's the tech, not the propaganda."

Yeah, it's ALL about the "tech"...  sure it is...  that you just happened to include a pro-Nazi clip is merely a coincidence, right???  

BTW, those Nazis did some really "techie" thinks with shower heads and Zyklon B.  I'm surprised you didn't mention how innovative they were doing that too.

Sorry, Mike...  I've got to go along with AKA on this one...

Fucking jerk.

SBA, there are things liberals and conservatives can discuss and there are some things for which discussion is not possible. NAZI Germany is not a topic I can discuss with a libtard.  The interesting thing is that the Germans had a functioning broadcast TV system in 1935. TV was invented in the 1920's, but did not get properly exploited for years afterwards.

"NAZI Germany is not a topic I can discuss with a libtard."

Now see, that is something I can understand.  Nobody, especially guys like you, likes to get outed as a white supremacist and a person who actually thinks that the Nazi did anything worthwhile.
