February 28 (A Triple)

202 BC - The Han Dynasty was founded by Chinese Emperor Gaozu.

The Han Dynasty was a high point in Chinese history, a time when China was by far the most powerful and civilized nation on earth...It was also during the Han period that the West first started trading with China over the Silk Road.

1933 – German President Hindenburg and Chancellor Hitler invoked Article 48 of the Wiemar Constitution, which permitted the suspension of civil liberties in a time of national emergency. This 'Decree of the Reich President for the Protection of the People and State' abrogated the following constitutional protections: Free expression of opinion, freedom of the press, right of assembly and association, right to privacy of postal and electronic communications, protection against unlawful searches and seizures, individual property rights, states' right of self-government. A supplemental decree created the SA (Storm Troops) and SS (Special Security) federal police agencies.

Prior to invading Poland, this is the single most important day in the history of Nazi Germany...Hindenburg handed Hitler the power he wanted, and Der Fuhrer took full advantage of it. All that was left was for Hindenburg to die and Hitler to pass the Enabling Act.

It only took one day after the 'Reichstag's Fire' for Hitler to capitalize on his plan to control Germany, and HELL WAS DEFINITELY BEING STIRRED UP...Hell to the tune of a 12-year period like never before in the history of mankind!!

1953 - Cambridge University scientists, James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the chemical structure of DNA:  The 'double helix.'

The concept of DNA had been around since the 1800's, but it wasn't until this discovery that it was understood to be the twisted structure we all know now.

Obviously, this discovery has led to many scientific marvels.  Hopefully the marvels continue to be used for the good of mankind...Instead of weaponized against us, as so often happens.

1574 - The first burning of heretics by the Inquisition in the New World occurred.

This is a reminder any religion can be barbaric in the hands of the wrong leaders, with the wrong message...I bang on Islam like no other, but Christianity had its period of brutality as well.

Luckily Christianity had a Reformation...Islam is long overdue for such a reformation.

1993 - A gun battle erupted at a compound near Waco, Texas, when Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms agents tried to serve warrants on the Branch Davidians; four agents and six Davidians were killed as a 51-day standoff began.

What a fiasco! Maybe it was a good thing Bill Clinton left our international enemies for Bush to handle...Considering the mess he made of Waco and Ruby Ridge I can only wonder how badly he would have botched an invasion of Iraq.

Oh yeah, I forgot, we know exactly how it would have turned out: SOMALIA!!

Nice C-in-C we had back then. And to think we almost had another in Al Gore or John Kerry...We're just beginning to find out what a mess we have in Obama.

I know which I prefer, but I should ask the question: Do you prefer machismo mofo's like Reagan and Bush, or panty-wastes like Clinton and Obama?

Truthfully, it won't matter what we prefer.  History will sort it out.

1994 - President Bill Clinton's 'Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell' policy for gays became official military policy.

Very nice...If gays didn’t insist on breaking the 'Don’t Tell' portion of the policy it might have actually worked.

1995 - U.S. Marines entered Somalia to protect retreating U.N. peacekeepers.

Why is the U.S. constantly having to save the U.N.? At least Clinton didn’t send our Marines there unprotected, to die, however...Not this time anyway.

2003 - The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stood by its ruling that reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in public schools was unconstitutional because of the words "under God."

The Ninth Circuit is a joke...Thank "GOD" the Supreme Court spanks it around like an abused stepchild.
