January 17, 1920 - The National Prohibition Act (Volstead Act) Went Into Effect

The National Prohibition Act was passed to enforce the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The Eighteenth Amendment had been ratified the previous year.

This act was a major factor in inciting some of the the rebellious "roar" of the Roaring Twenties, and unintentionally made numerous organized crime figures wealthy, powerful, and, in some cases, legends in their own time. It has also, again unintentionally, provided the entertainment industry with both source, and inspirational material for more than a century and counting.

January 29, 2017 - Kellyanne Conway Disclosed the Bowling Green Massacre

The Senior Counselor to the President (TFG) told the world that, "two Iraqi nationals came to this country, joined ISIS, traveled back to the Middle East to get trained and refine their terrorism skills, and come back here, and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre of taking innocent soldiers' lives away."

Until this disclosure, the horrors of the Bowling Green Massacre were totally unknown outside of the top secret confines of the United States Intelligence Community (IC), and the White House.

February 15, 1946 - ENIAC, the 1st Digital Computer, Was Dedicated at the University of Pennsylvania

The Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer was the first programmable, electronic, general-purpose digital computer. Other computers had combinations of these features, but the ENIAC had all of them in one computer.

ENIAC was huge, taking up a 1,500-square-foot room. It was made up of 40 panels arranged in a U-shape along three of the room's walls. Along with the panels, which were each 8 feet high, 2 feet wide, and 2 feet deep, the machine included 70,000 resistors, 17,000 vacuum tubes, 10,000 capacitors, 1,500 relays, and 6,000 switches. ENIAC ran constantly to extend the life of its vacuum tubes, and it generated large amounts of heat. The room had to have its own air conditioning system to keep the computer from overheating.

February 19, 2009 - The Tea Party Movement Was Launched

This astroturfed movement, financed by David Kock, was launched in protest of the election of Barack Hussein Obama II, the first African-American president of the United States of America.

Starting out as a fashionable, publicly acceptable version of the openly racist KKK, the Tea Party has since morphed into the redneck, openly authoritarian and racist MAGA movement. That's progress for you.
