Three things of note have happened on February 12th.
- In 1825, the conservative warmongers of the time finished chasing the Creek Native Americans out of Georgia so that they could have even more land upon which to settle.
- In 1924, early Neocon Calvin Coolidge became the first US President to deliver a political speech over the radio, thereby beginning a century of conservative control over yet another form of media.
- In a huge victory for justice, logic and humanity as a whole, President Bill Clinton was acquitted at his impeachment trial. Since then, Republicans have been griping about it nonstop. Now did they gripe when Richard Nixon avoided impeachment?
