THIS DAY IN HISTORY

September 9

1776 - The U.S. was born when the Continental Congress changed the name of the nation from the United Colonies to the United States.

This change may seem small, but the change in terminology was a big step signifying a break from England...A colony is a territory controlled by a state. A state is an independent, sovereign entity.

1940 - The 'Two Ocean Navy Act' passed, authorizing 210 ships, including 12 aircraft carriers and 7 battleships:  WWII.

Yet FDR was keeping us out of the war, and “had no knowledge of an impending attack”...Ok.


1942 - A Japanese plane dropped incendiary bombs on Oregon:  WWII.

FYI: Like the U.S. and Germany, the Japanese were working on atomic, biological and chemical weapons...Those who cry about the use of the Atom Bombs in Japan must realize the Japanese would have had no concerns about doing the same to us.


1948 - The People's Democratic Republic of Korea (North Korea) was created.

Congratulations! Satan must have been overwhelmed with joy to see the creation of another Hell State.


Incredibly, this putrid little state has outlasted all it's brethren.

1957 - President Eisenhower signed the first civil rights bill Congress passed since Reconstruction.

That was a Republican president, right?


1963 - Alabama Governor George Wallace was served a federal injunction when he ordered state police to bar black students from enrolling in white schools.

That was a Democrat governor, right?


1976 - Chinese leader Mao Zedong died in Beijing at age 82.

WooooHoooo!!! It’s always good to see the world’s
deka-megamurderers kick the bucket.
