During the war, the well-known retailer and manufacturer Montgomery Ward had supplied the Allies with everything from tractors to auto parts to workmen's clothing--items deemed as important to the war effort as bullets and ships. However, Montgomery Ward Chairman Sewell Avery refused to comply with the terms of three different collective bargaining agreements with the United Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union hammered out between 1943 and 1944. In April 1944, after Sewell refused a second board order, Roosevelt called out the Army National Guard to seize the company's main plant in Chicago. Sewell himself had to be carried out of his office by National Guard troops. By December of that year, Roosevelt was fed up with Sewell's obstinacy and disrespect for the government's authority. (The uber-capitalist Sewell's favorite insult was to call someone a "New Dealer"--a direct reference to Roosevelt's Depression-era policies.) On December 27, Roosevelt ordered the secretary of war to seize Montgomery Ward's plants and facilities in New York, Michigan, California, Illinois, Colorado and Oregon.

Bank of America made over $4 Billion and paid zero taxes.

This country used to have a way of dealing with those that continue to rob and steal from the American people.

My only criticism of this photo is that FDR should have put Rockefeller, Harriman, and Bush in similar photo strolls of shame.

Think of today's insurance companies who steal soldiers' benefits, the federal reserve who did /11 and gets us into insane wars.

Why aren't they hauled off to fricking jail, or at least grand jury investigated?
