    There’s an unsubstantiated rumor that while the House Judiciary Committee was working on Nixon’s impeachment it needed a lawyer so vile, so void of any discernible shred of human decency, so unprincipled, immoral that they were sure its likes didn’t even exist in Washington.
    They picked a trusted office ghoul to find one, gave him unlimited resources and turned him loose. He thought about it and, in the dead of night, he went out, found a yelt, sent it to an ivy league law school and brought it back to DC. It wasn’t long before the Geppettos found their Pinocchio too repulsive for even their purposes and turned it loose in the wilds of the Beltway.
    From time to time it’s seen crashing through DC, shredding laws and trying to feed at every trough it can get its over-madeup snout into…some say it’s a legend and some say it’s just waiting in the shadows with its mate to wreak havoc and eat everyone else’s swill. Only time will tell…

    Good Morning and Good Evening, gentle men and ladies! I’m checking out for the night, so I’ll try not to get entangled before I actually remove myself from the computer!

    The Day in (Mostly) American History: March 22

    1622: First American Indian (Powhattan) massacre of Europeans in Jamestown Virginia, 347 killed
    1630: First colonial legislation prohibiting gambling enacted (Boston)

    1765: Stamp Act imposed on American colonies Hoping to raise sufficient funds to defend the vast new American territories won from the French in the Seven Yearsโ€™ War, the British government passes the notorious Stamp Act on this day in 1765. The legislation levied a direct tax on all materials printed for commercial and legal use in the colonies, including everything from broadsides and insurance policies to playing cards and dice.
    Three critical political forces came into being during the Stamp Act crisis that would serve to advance the cause of rebellion ten years later. First, the Sons of Libertyโ€”a group of tradesmen who led the riots in Boston and other seaboard citiesโ€”was established. Second, the formation of the Stamp Act Congress united politically active gentlemen across colonial boundaries, as the Continental Congress would again do in 1774. Finally, the non-importation agreements developed in response to the Stamp Act gave the colonial population a sense of power as consumers of British goods

    1790: Thomas Jefferson becomes the first US Secretary of State under President Washington.
    1794: Congress bans US vessels from supplying slaves to other countries
    1841: Cornstarch patented (Orlando Jones)
    1871: William Holden of NC becomes first governor removed by impeachment
    1872: Illinois becomes first state to require sexual equality in employment
    1903: Niagra Falls runs out of water because of a drought
    1914: The St. Petersburgโ€“Tampa Airboat Line becomes the world’s first scheduled airline
    1917: The USA is the first nation to recognize the new government of Russia
    1929: USCG vessel sank Canadian schooner suspected of carrying liquor

    1933: FDR makes wine & beer with up to 3.2% alcohol legal FDR considered the new law โ€œof the highest importanceโ€ for its potential to generate much-needed federal funds and included it in a sweeping set of New Deal policies designed to vault the U.S. economy out of the Great Depression. The Beer and Wine Revenue act was followed, in December 1933, by the passage of the 21st Amendment, which officially ended Prohibition.

    1935: Blood tests authorized as evidence in court cases (NY)
    1941: Grand Coulee Dam in Washington goes into operation

    1941: James Stewart is inducted into the Army, becoming the first major American movie star to wear a military uniform in World War II

    1944: 600+ 8th Air Force bombers attack Berlin

    1944: American movie star Jimmy Stewart flies his 12th combat mission, leading the 2nd Bomb Wing in an attack on Berlin

    1945: Arab League forms with adoption of a charter in Cairo Egypt Representatives from Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Transjordan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Yemen meet in Cairo to establish the Arab League, a regional organization of Arab states. Formed to foster economic growth in the region, resolve disputes between its members, and coordinate political aims, members of the Arab League formed a council, with each state receiving one vote. When the State of Israel was created in 1948, the league countries jointly attacked but were repulsed by the Israelis. Two years later, Arab League nations signed a mutual defense treaty. Fifteen more Arab nations eventually joined the organization, which established a common market in 1965.

    1946: First US rocket to leave the Earth’s atmosphere (50 miles up)
    1947: President Harry Truman signs executive order calling for loyalty
    Trumanโ€™s loyalty program resulted in the discovery of only a few employees whose loyalty could be โ€œreasonablyโ€ doubted. Nevertheless, for a time his order did quiet some of the criticism that his administration was โ€œsoftโ€ on communism. Matters changed dramatically in 1949-1950. The Soviets developed an atomic bomb, China fell to the communists, and Senator Joseph McCarthy made the famous speech in which he declared that there were over 200 โ€œknown communistsโ€ in the Department of State. Once again, charges were leveled that the Truman administration was โ€œcoddlingโ€ communists, and in response, the Red Scare went into full swing.

    1954: First shopping mall opened in Southfield, Michigan
    1954: Closed since 1939, the London bullion market reopens.
    1958: USSR performs nuclear test at Novaya Zemlya USSR
    1960: First patent for lasers granted to Arthur Schawlow & Charles Townes
    1963: Beatles release first album, “Please Please Me”
    1963: British Minister of War John Profumo denies having sex with Christine Keeler

    1965: [Vietnam] US confirms its troops used chemical warfare against the Vietcong. The State Department acknowledges that the United States had supplied the South Vietnamese armed forces with a โ€œnon-lethal gas which disables temporarilyโ€ for use โ€œin tactical situations in which the Viet Cong intermingle with or take refuge among non-combatants, rather than use artillery or aerial bombardment.โ€ This announcement triggered a storm of criticism worldwide. The North Vietnamese and the Soviets loudly protested the introduction of โ€œpoison gasโ€ into the war. Secretary of State Dean Rusk insisted at a news conference on March 24 that the United States was โ€œnot embarking upon gas warfare,โ€ but was merely employing โ€œa gas which has been commonly adopted by the police forces of the world as riot-control agents.โ€
    This is different than Agent Orange, which was a chemical defoliant containing the toxic chemical dioxin. Agent Orange was a powerful mixture of chemical defoliants used by U.S. military forces during the Vietnam War to eliminate forest cover for North Vietnamese and Viet Cong troops, as well as crops that might be used to feed them. The U.S. program of defoliation, codenamed Operation Ranch Hand, sprayed more than 19 million gallons of herbicides over 4.5 million acres of land in Vietnam from 1961 to 1972. Agent Orange, which contained the chemical dioxin, was the most commonly used of the herbicide mixtures, and the most effective. It was later revealed to cause serious health issuesโ€“including tumors, birth defects, rashes, psychological symptoms and cancerโ€“among returning U.S. servicemen and their families as well as among the Vietnamese population.

    1967: Muhammad Ali KOs Zora Folley in 7 for heavyweight boxing title

    1968: [Vietnam] Westmoreland to depart South Vietnam One of the warโ€™s most controversial figures, General Westmoreland was given many honors when the fighting was going well, but when the war turned sour, many Americans blamed him for problems in Vietnam. Negative feeling about Westmoreland grew particularly strong following the Tet Offensive of 1968.

    1971: USSR performs nuclear test at Eastern Kazakh/Semipalitinsk USSR

    1972: Equal Rights Act passed through Congress and sent to the States for ratification. The Act failed to garner the 38 States’ ratification necessary to pass into law. First proposed by the National Womanโ€™s political party in 1923, the Equal Rights Amendment was to provide for the legal equality of the sexes and prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex. More than four decades later, the revival of feminism in the late 1960s spurred its introduction into Congress.
    1972: In Eisenstadt v. Baird the US Supreme Court rules unmarried people have same right to contraception as married people.

    1975: Walt Disney World Shopping Village opens

    1975: A fire at the Browns Ferry Nuclear Power Plant in Decatur, Alabama causes dangerous lowering of cooling water levels.

    1978: France performs nuclear test

    1983: The origins of the Hummer On this day in 1983, the Pentagon awards a production contract worth more than $1 billion to AM General Corporation to develop 55,000 High Mobility Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicles (HMMWV). Nicknamed the Humvee and designed to transport troops and cargo, the wide, rugged vehicles entered the spotlight when they were used by the American military during the 1989 invasion of Panama and the Persian Gulf War in the early 1990s.

    1984: Teachers at the McMartin preschool in Manhattan Beach, California are charged with Satanic ritual abuse of the children in the school. The charges are later dropped as completely unfounded.

In a long-anticipated challenge to Web sites like the popular video-sharing site YouTube, two entertainment giantsโ€“News Corporation and NBC Universalโ€“announce a high-stakes Internet venture on this day in 2007. According to the terms of the deal, News Corporation, owned by the Australian media mogul Rupert Murdoch, and NBC, a unit of General Electric Co., would begin distributing their own programming on popular Web sites such as America Online (AOL), Yahoo, MySpace and Microsoftโ€™s Internet portal, MSN. News Corp. and NBC also planned to make video of TV shows and movies available on a separate Web site. The site would be supported by advertisers and free to viewers, who could edit the available content and post their own, as well as buy downloads of movies made by 20th Century Fox and Universal Studios.

Due to the Glock’s lands/groves you’ll shear lead and deposit it in the barrel requiring frequent strenuous cleaning or you have the risk of a major failure when you fire a jacketed bullet. You can shoot some in an emergency but for practice shooting use a jacketed bullet or buy an aftermarket barrel from someone like Lone Wolf.

    Some folks are wondering why a 17 year old and 18 year old were in the 9th grade in a public high school. Simple answer. Government benefits stop at the age of 18 if you are not enrolled in school. So we have 2 young men who will be eligible for government benefits until they are 20 and 21 so long as they say on the enrollment list in school.

    Nunes is on TV saying that there was definitely surveillance by the government of Trump at Trump Tower and that some of it seems to be suspect and at some level politically motivated. President Trump and his people were caught up as incidental intelligence and that they were included and unmasked in intelligence reports.

    Nunes says that the unmasking of names was totally inappropriate and there needs to be an answer as to why they were unmasked and why they were included in an intelligence report. Nunes said we are investigating whether the surveillance was conducted properly.

    Ahh the things that get buried in your mind and get jogged loose by a stray cosmic ray.
    I have a set of CDs that date back to just after 911 that were distributed to teach a Moslem version of a Silat-based fighting system. It was developed in the South Pacific area, those of you familiar with Filipino/Indonesian Silat would recognize it.
    The disks go heavily into offensive and defensive uses of bladed weapons, a most likely weapon in areas where weapons are heavily regulated. I can’t put them on-line for a number of reasons, not the least of which is I don’t have permissions to redistribute them, but the idea of Moslem terrs using knives to attack police, military abd civilians didn’t just drop out of the sky, like 911 it’s been out there in one form or another for a while.

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen
