An interesting story

We received an email that told of a
little old lady who lived in South
Dakota. Since we had never heard of
said little old lady, we assumed it
would be a story about her and her

Turns out that is not the case at all.
This woman’s claim to fame is that she
was in Austria in 1938 when Hitler took
over, and she talks of it openly.

People either don’t remember, or never
knew, that in 1938 Hitler was a popular
person. Also Austria voted to let Hitler
assume control of their country because
of the economics of the day.

In 1938, Austria had 25% inflation, and
bank loans had 25% interest rates. People
were declaring bankruptcy daily, and most
were begging for food.

Hitler had been in power in Germany since
1933, and the Austrians were promised a
vote for Hitler would end unemployment,
businesses would be helped, and farmers
would get their farms back.

98% voted to annex Austria to Germany.
The same day Hitler was elected, March, 13,
1938, the Catholic schools had a picture of
Hitler hanging where the crucifix had been.

Sunday was named “National Youth Day” and
attendance was mandatory. It started with
political indoctrination, then sports for
the remainder of the day, instead of going
to church.

Disabled people started disappearing soon
after to be rehabilitated, and never seen
again. All this without a shot being fired
or a weapon even being displayed.

In 2010, the Daily Kos had a story about her that
claimed she has a distorted memory.

Also in 2010, truthorfiction claims she is
telling it like it is.

Whichever side you take, Kitty Werthmann
does have an interesting story to tell. She
also claims there are 11 points of comparision
between life in the U.S. now and life under
Comments are always welcome.

    Yesterday morning I listen to Roxanne talk about voting and how this idea of showing ID to vote is voter suppression. She then went into how to register. One of the things you have to do is show photo ID and not just any photo ID. You have to show photo ID with an expiration date. Why is it good for one and not the other?

    They all seem to be pushing a double standard. Unless it means more work for them.
