“We are determined to make every American citizen the subject of his country’s interest and concern.” Carl 1937
“We are determined to make every American citizen the subject of his country’s interest and concern.” FDR 2010
The picture of me above was taken in 1908. As the viewer can see, I am at the wheel of the sailing ship known as a frigate.
This is a picture of Roosevelt taken in 2010. DOES ANYONE THINK THIS IS A COINCIDENCE? It is obvious he is stealing my Pizzazz.
ROOSEVELT IS SNEAKING HIS WAY INTO THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
In March of 1933, I said “…there must be a strict supervision of all banking and credits and investments; there must be an end to speculation with other people’s money…”
In June of this year, this Roosevelt fellow said “…there must be a strict supervision of all banking and credits and investments; there must be an end to speculation with other people’s money…”
DOES ANYONE SEE WHAT’S GOING ON HERE? Not only has this Roosevelt fellow stolen my dashing boating stance, he is now freely quoting me directly without attribution!
In January of 1937, I said “We are beginning to abandon our tolerance of the abuse of power by those who betray for profit the elementary decencies of life.”
In July of this year Mr. Roosevelt said “We are beginning to abandon our tolerance of the abuse of power by those who betray for profit the elementary decencies of life.” Once again the reader can witness the unashamed theft of my words. I SAY YOU WILL NOT GET AWAY WITH THIS FRANKLIN!

This is a photo of my “Man of the Hour” mantel clock. It was made in 1908 when I started my campaign against the crooked “banksters” and their criminal practices in our financial institutions.

This is a picture of the clock the Roosevelt people are cranking out by the millions since January 2010. They have taken my clock and put his head on it! DO YOU PEOPLE REALLY THINK I WOULD NOT CATCH THIS CHICANERY?
Let me remind the reader and Mr. Roosevelt that I have been fighting against the “banksters” for 75 years. In 1904, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin’s kinsman, employed similar trickery. He combined the progressive agenda of the North Eastern Establishment, the government modifications in Minnesota, and the Populism of the South and West to defeat William Jennings Bryan in the presidential election. Theodore had the nerve to then proudly proclaim “I stole Bryan’s thunder!” However, Franklin, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO STEAL MY PIZZAZZ.

It was just a few days before Christmas. I didn’t wanna have a bout during the holidays but the press and da fans was insistent. My trademark was da purple trunks wid da yellow trim. The bell rang and I exploded into the center of da ring. Two left hooks and a right cross and the guy was out. KO. It was absolute bedlam in da arena dat night. A young(I do mean young) Italian kid (I do mean kid) from Staten Island had won the title! I was dizzy from the hundreds of flashes from da cameras and dey carried me out hoisted high above the crowd! It was glorious.
I was Champ for only five minutes though, because it was supper time and I had to go to the bathroom. It was 1952. That’s Dad on the right. He was a middleweight champ US Army 1943. And THAT really is a title, buddy.
