November 10, 1892

His father founded an ammunition company, but John apparently didn't feel like risking his life using the stuff against the Germans. John inherited the whole shooting match, sold untold tons of ammunition to the federal government, creating a SuperFund site or two in the process, and used his excess wealth to fund a slew of right-wing "think" tanks, so the families of those who got shot in his stead could be further abused by his chickenhawk cronies.
