    April 19th ..... 1775

    Let's remember April 19th as PATRIOTS day. The MSM will use it to commemorate (if you want to put it like that) both the bombing of the Oklahoma Federal Building and the tragic outcome of the Koresh cult in Waco. But the greatest event to happen on April 19th happened in 1775 when the British Redcoats tried to force the colonials in the towns of Lexington & Concord to lay down their arms and submit to the King. Somebody fired a shot and it was heard 'round the world..... And so the American Revolution began.....

    "He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."
