For the nerds in the house, there are 256 days remaining in the year.
For the history buffs, some cool things happened today too!
- Some ungrateful Whigs in Massachusetts zerg rushed a British Army platoon keeping the public safe through gun control.
- In Baltimore, a number of unarmed civilians protesting the federal abuse of states' rights were viciously massacred by members of the military in what was the first blood of a minor political squabble.
- Peaceful Christians in Waco were sieged by the government. A few people die.
- Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols arranged a public demonstration showing the dangers of playing with fireworks.
So, happy April 19th! If I had my way, this would be "Freedom Day", in celebration of all of our Bill of Rights and in honour of the Thomas Jefferson quote: "The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants."
Never let it be said Americans are so decadent and complacent that we can't stand up for something we believe.
