Historical Political Events for August 26

Year Event
1789 The French Assembly adopted the Declaration of the Rights of Man.
1920 The 19th amendment to the U.S. Constitution, guaranteeing American women the right to vote, was declared to be in effect when Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby signed the amendment into law. Women were manipulated for their vote (just like men, but maybe in a different way) from the very beginning -- see "Attorney General Palmer and the Inflation Fighters".
1965 P. L. 89-136, entitled "Public Works and Economic Development Act of 1965", enacted. The first of a long series of such acts, the purpose of which is to make spreading of the "pork" much easier.
1992 Animal Enterprise Protection Act, P.L. 102-346, becomes law. Prohibits terrorism against animal enterprises [Just in case such an activity is not covered by one of the other gazillion laws we have].
1994 President Clinton (D) signed the Anti-Crime bill, P.L. 103-322, into law following the Senate vote of 61-38 in favor [Makes crime illegal - again!]. This was the bill in which Clinton proudly proclaimed that he was putting an additional 100,000 cops on the street. Which of course, was a lie. What the bill provided was grants to police departments, (C.O.P.S.), for up to 3 years. They must have matching funds and they will need to know what to do when the grant money is gone. What the bill did do was provide tons of opportunities for government fraud which you can read about at the governments investigation site, the O.I.G., in the referenced web page.

Quote of
the Day
Sensible and responsible women do not want to vote. The relative positions to be assumed by man and woman in the working out of our civilization were assigned long ago by a higher intelligence than ours.
    — Grover Cleveland (1837-1908), President (1885-1889) & (1893-1897)
