March 25

1982 - Wayne Gretzky became the first NHL player to score 200 points in a season.

Wayne Gretzky is the most dominant individual athlete in the history of North American sports, and I'm not sure anyone other than Babe Ruth or Wilt Chamberlain (and maybe Jerry Rice) comes close to the records he amassed...What makes Gretz so amazing is physically he was nothing special - it was his work ethic, skill set, reflexes and brain which made him great.

Gretzky scored 200 or more points in a season four times.  No other NHL player has ever done it once.  Mario Lemieux came close, with 199...No one else has cracked 160.

Gretzky scored 2,857 total points.  The next closest point producer is Mark Messier with 1,877...Gretzky still holds 61 NHL records.

And I don't see anyone in the near future getting even close, because hardly anyone scores over 100 points a season in the modern game - 120 being the highest in the last ten years....A change in the game which has not been for the better.

31 - The first Easter was celebrated, according to calendar-maker Dionysius Exiguus.


1306 - Robert I, 'the Bruce,' was crowned King of Scotland.

Not that it means anything to most of you, but I’m proud to be able to claim my family and surname descend from the 'Bruce' clan.

1655 - Fighting between Royalists and Puritans in Maryland, prompted by harsh measures ordered by the parliamentarian assembly, ended with a Puritan victory.

It may be a stretch, but I think it's fair to consider this the first battle in the American Revolution...Taking on the crown was no small matter, and eventually winning the political battle was an almost impossible dream.

1911 - The Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire.

146 garment workers died in this fire, which led to many workplace regulations and changes in factory industries...Changes that were long overdue.

That said, I find it incredible that modern Liberals reach back 100 years to this event as a benchmark for just about any workplace regulation they want to enact.

1945 - Winston Churchill became the first British leader to enter Germany since Neville Chamberlain signed the Munich Pact:  WWII.

What a pair of polar opposites...Churchill entered as a future conqueror of the Reich, and Chamberlain as little more than a whore who rolled over and took it from Der Fuhrer...Churchill was the greatest leader in the free-world during the 20th Century, and Chamberlain one of the century's biggest losers.

Such is the cruel reality for those who choose to play patty-cake with tyrants.

1987 - Johnson v. Transportation Agency:  The U.S. Supreme Court ruled employers may sometimes favor women and members of minority groups over better-qualified men and whites in hiring and promoting in order to achieve better balance in the work force.

So much for the American concept of 'equality'...This nation wasn’t created on the concept of equality of condition, but on equality of opportunity. There is a huge difference, and this is one of the primary reasons why America became great.

Unfortunately, the American Left is determined to take America closer to Europe than towards the ideal of 'The Founders.'

Sadly, it's one of the reasons we are falling.

1997 - Georgia Governor Zell Miller signed into law a ban on a controversial form of late-term abortion.

Lets just revisit the procedure, performed on LATE TERM BABIES:

1. Guided by ultrasound the doctor grabs the baby’s legs with a forceps.

2. The baby’s legs are pulled out into the birth canal.

3. The doctor delivers the baby’s entire body, except for the head.

4. The doctor punctures the baby’s skull with a pair of scissors, and the scissors are opened to enlarge the hole.

5. The scissors are removed and a suction catheter is inserted. The child's brain is sucked out, causing the skull to collapse.

6. The dead baby is then removed.

Nice 'choice.'

Not surprisingly, Liberals in the federal courts crushed this ruling..."The stench from the bench is making me clench." - Michael Savage

1998 - Shaken by horror stories from the worst genocide since World War II, President Bill Clinton grimly acknowledged during his Africa tour that "we did not act quickly enough" to stop the slaughter of up to a million Rwandans four years earlier.

What a magnanimous declaration for Clinton to ‘acknowledge' he allowed these poor people to perish at the hands of evil.

After WWII the mantra was “never again,” but we know this was just lip service...And when a leader like George W. Bush arrived on the scene and gave action to lip service, the world went nuts. Proving the world couldn't care less about humanity, right and wrong, or good and evil!!

1998 - The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously approved a two-year extension of a visa waiver program, allowing some 12-million tourists and business people entry to the U.S. without need of a visa.

Looking back at this decision, this program allowed all of the 9/11 terrorists to enter the county with impunity...Nice.
