“Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.”
by John Adams
Today in 1457 – Gutenberg Bible became the first printed book (in Europe. the Koreans and Chinese were already doing fixed-type printing)
Today in 1765 – The Parliament of Great Britain passes the Stamp Act, which introduced a tax to be levied directly on its American colonies forcing them to pay for government services they were forced to have. Forcing you to pay for government services you didn’t ask for… who did they think they were, Obama and his clown congress? Taxation without representation is bad. It’s worse with the ‘representation’ we’ve got.
