He was defininitely the star of the team, leading them to consecutive undefeated seasons and national titles in 1932 and 33.

  • Gerald Ford was such a great President that he didn't even need to be elected. He was married to Betty Ford, a true American lady who really knew how to have a good time. Despite claims to the contrary, Ford never, ever fell down. Not even when he was learning to walk at 14 months. He simply got up on his own two feet after pulling himself up by his bootstraps, and stayed that way for the rest of his life. Soon after learning to walk at 14 months Gerald Ford killed his first bear, he did not kill it with traditional methods however, rather he said to the bear, "DIE!" and it did, proving that all living things succumb to the overpowering will of Gerald Ford.

Gérard Fordon de son vrai nom naît un certain 15 avril 1865 dans le village de Bonne-sur-Menoge en Haute-Savoie. Dans les belles montagnes de cette région le moyen de transport le plus répandu à cette époque était l'âne. Massivement importé de Tunisie, l'âne était un produit coûteux et peu efficace.

  • Gerald Ford was the 37th President of the United States, following Richard Nixon. He was the first person to be appointed Vice President via the twenty-fifth amendment to the United States Constitution, after Nixon's Vice President, Spiro Agnew, resigned. He then became the first person to ascend to both the Presidency and Vice Presidency under that amendment when Nixon resigned. On November 24, 1974, Emmett Brown was present when Gerald Ford met with Leonid Brezhnev in the Soviet Union to sign an agreement limiting the amount of strategic arms that both countries could possess.
  • Gerald Rudolph Ford Jr. was President of the United States even though no one ever voted for him, not even as Vice President of the United States. Richard Nixon appointed him VP, then later Ford pardoned his friend Nixon. Despite being recent, he happens to be one of the least known of presidents ever, though it is possible that presidents Millard Filmore and Franklin Pierce surpassed him. Gerald Ford was named Leslie Lynch King Jr. at birth but his parents' marriage didn't work out so he got the name of his mother's second husband.

He was the first person appointed to the vice-presidency under the terms of the 25th Amendment, and became President upon Richard Nixon's resignation on August 9, 1974.

Before ascending to the Vice Presidency, Ford served nearly 25 years as the Representative from Michigan's 5th congressional district, eight of them as the Republican Minority Leader. As President, Ford signed the Helsinki Accords, marking a move toward détente in the Cold War. With the conquest of South Vietnam by North Vietnam nine months into his presidency, U.S. involvement in Vietnam essentially ended. Domestically, Ford presided over the worst economy in the four decades since the Great Depression, with growing inflation and a recession during his tenure. One of his more controversial acts was to grant a presidential pardon to President Richard Nixon for his role in the Watergate scandal. During Ford's incumbency, foreign policy was characterized in procedural terms by the increased role Congress began to play, and by the corresponding curb on the powers of the President. In 1976, Ford defeated Ronald Reagan for the Republican nomination, but narrowly lost the presidential election to Democrat Jimmy Carter. Following his years as president, Ford remained active in the Republican Party. After experiencing health problems, Ford died in his home on December 26, 2006. Ford lived longer than any other U.S. president, living 93 years and 165 days, while his 895-day presidency remains the shortest of all presidents who did not die in office.

Mit dem ähnlich wie Ford zur Macht gekommenen Helmut Schmidt gründete er die Weltwirtschaftsgipfel. Ford war Freimaurer und berief Nelson Rockefeller als Vizepräsident, was Futter war für allerhand Verschwörungstheorien. Deshalb wählten die Amis lieber einen unbekannten bodenständigen Erdnussbauern namens Jimmy Carter als nächsten Chef ins Weiße Haus. Zwei Damen hatten es eiliger und versuchten mit Waffengewalt sich des unheimlichen ungewählten Präsidenten zu entledigen. Deshalb war die Abwahl nötig, denn eine zweite Amtszeit hätte wohl Ford-Attentate am Fließband mit sich gebracht.

  • Gerald Ford was such a great President that he didn't even need to be elected. He was married to Betty Ford, a true American lady who really knew how to have a good time. Despite claims to the contrary, Ford never, ever fell down. Not even when he was learning to walk at 14 months. He simply got up on his own two feet after pulling himself up by his bootstraps, and stayed that way for the rest of his life. Soon after learning to walk at 14 months Gerald Ford killed his first bear, he did not kill it with traditional methods however, rather he said to the bear, "DIE!" and it did, proving that all living things succumb to the overpowering will of Gerald Ford.

  • Plus connu sous le nom de Gérard Fordon, il fut à la base du concept du même nom à savoir le Fordisme. Issu d'une famille pauvre habitant la campagne française. Gérard Fordon de son vrai nom naît un certain 15 avril 1865 dans le village de Bonne-sur-Menoge en Haute-Savoie. Dans les belles montagnes de cette région le moyen de transport le plus répandu à cette époque était l'âne. Massivement importé de Tunisie, l'âne était un produit coûteux et peu efficace. Un jour il plaqua tout pour aller s'installer à New York en n'oubliant pas au passage de changer son nom en Gerald Ford dans le but de devenir célèbre. C'est là qu'il rencontra Richard Nixon qui fit de lui le Vice-Président des États-Unis. Il remporta le championnat du monde de descente d'escalier à Vienne, mais fut disqualifié pour chute sur les fesses Gerald Ford était incapable de : * marcher en mâchant du chewing-gum * penser et de pisser en même temps * penser et de péter en même temps Après le passage de l'ouragan Watergate, il fut même président. Le jour de sa mort, il faisait Rhaaaaa Rhaaaaaa Rhaaaaaa Rhaaaaaa, prouvant ainsi qu'on pouvait tout à la fois mourir et mâcher du chewing-gum.
  • Gerald Rudolph Ford Jr. was President of the United States even though no one ever voted for him, not even as Vice President of the United States. Richard Nixon appointed him VP, then later Ford pardoned his friend Nixon. Despite being recent, he happens to be one of the least known of presidents ever, though it is possible that presidents Millard Filmore and Franklin Pierce surpassed him. Gerald Ford was named Leslie Lynch King Jr. at birth but his parents' marriage didn't work out so he got the name of his mother's second husband. Before he died Ford said he opposed an independent commission to investigate 9/11. He died of a heart attack and was given a State funeral in December 2006.
