“Statistically, fighting back is safer than giving in.”

Today in 413 – Emperor Honorius signs an edict providing tax relief for the Italian provinces Tuscia, Campania, Picenum, Samnium, Apulia, Lucania and Calabria, which were plundered by the Visigoths. Today we’re being plundered by a new variety of vandal and the Left’s solution is to raise EVERYBODY’S taxes to make the vandals more comfortable.
Today in 1846 – Mexican-American War: The Battle of Palo Alto – Zachary Taylor defeats a Mexican force north of the Rio Grande in the first major battle of the war. For those of you who might be confused, the Rio Grande is the border. Mexico is SOUTH of that river. If they hadn’t been NORTH of it, we wouldn’t have been compelled to administer an a**-kicking.
