March 13

1516 - Charles V was crowned King of Spain.

Not since Charlemagne had a European monarch held so much importance, and Charles was the first to rule a truly ‘global empire’: Spain (including its New World possessions), Austria, the Netherlands, much of Italy, and the Holy Roman Empire.

Unfortunately for Charles, his reign saw very few (if any) years of peace, because he was in constant battle with the French (west) and Turks (east), had the normal hassle of dealing with the German princes in the HRE, and the misfortune of being the leader of the Catholic world during the time of Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation

1852 - The 'New York Lantern' published the first cartoon showing the character 'Uncle Sam,' based on a real U.S. officer who served in the war of 1812: Samuel Wilson.

Uncle Sam is a great patriotic character, but unfortunately too many Americans have taken the 'Uncle' part to mean the government is their family - their Mommy and Daddy!

1865 - The Confederate Congress authorized the enlistment of up to 300,000 slaves as soldiers, in exchange for their freedom:  U.S. Civil War.

They were desperate and knew the end was near, so what did they have to lose by making such an offer?  Plus they probably hoped a bunch of the slaves would die in the battle, so they wouldn't have to deal with them after the war ended.

1925 - A law went into effect in Tennessee prohibiting the teaching of evolution.

It only took eight years for communist practices to cross from the Soviet Union to American schools.

I have no problem with evolution and no problem with creation, but I do have a problem with either being excluded. Both should be taught, equally...And they shouldn’t be taught as mutually exclusive concepts, because the more I examine the matter the more I'm convinced both occurred together.

1933 - Josef Goebbels became German Minister of Information and Propaganda.

What a glorious day for all of mankind to have such a piece of crap take over this great position...Unfortunately, many Liberal propagandameisters have followed Goebbels path.

1941 - Adolph Hitler issued an edict calling for an invasion of the U.S.S.R.:  WWII.

Hitler may have won WWII had he been more patient and disciplined...He had Western Europe in his clutches, and if he was irrational it's possible he would have been able to conquer the Brits. Then he could have went after the Ruskies.

But Hitler was too impatient and maniacal to wait, and repeated Napoleon’s mistake of fighting the Brits and Russians at the same time...And then the ultimate mistake was made when the Japanese pushed the U.S. into the war.

1974 - The U.S. Senate voted to restore the death penalty.

Since this time there have been almost 1,000 death penalty executions...In this same period there have been over 45,000,000 abortions.

So we have killed 45,000 innocent babies for every 1 murderous criminal...THIS IS PATHETIC!!

I'd like to see the ratio evened out to a 1:1 ratio...Which means we should significantly crank up the execution of murderers or drastically lower the rate of abortions.

But it'll never happen because Liberals support executing the unborn, while at the same time defending murderers and child molesters - a prime example of the disease of Liberalism.

1992 - Pravda, official newspaper of the Soviet Communist Party, ceased publication due to lack of funds.

Luckily for the Commies, Pravda had plenty of money left in its other papers: The L.A. Times, N.Y. Times, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, etc.

2003 - The U.N. Human Rights chief excoriated the U.S. Guantanamo policy, saying the world shouldn't have territory "where no law applies."

This is almost laughable when you consider the group of maggots who infested the U.N. Human Rights Commission in 2003: China, Cuba, The Congo, Libya, Mexico, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Sudan, Syria, Uganda, Vietnam, Zimbabwe...A virtual 'Who’s Who' of the worlds worst dictatorships and overall shit-holes.

Reason #2,949,103 to get the Hell out of the Circle Jerk Group.
