This is an interesting editorial that pretty much implies that the U.S. Congress reigning in 1942 thought the American people were just as dumb as Congress does today. Although the Selective Service had reached into almost every household in the country and taken every able-bodied male, Congress behaved as if these households only cared about gas and sugar rationing:

"Don't Think that We the People, can't take anything you have to hand out. And don't get it into your minds that we don't know there is a war on... He won't be home for dinner [again] tonight. And your worry about our rationing cards would be funny if it weren't so pitiful."

W.W. II: Where were the war poets?
