I’m not a Yankees fan by any means, but I’ve always respected this guy.

The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted.
from President Eisenhower’s farewell address; January 17, 1961

On this day…

356 BC — Alexander III of Macedon, better known as Alexander the Great, is born in Greece. He became the measure by which leaders compared themselves, and military academies throughout the world still teach his tactics.

1944 — Hitler survives Operation Valkyrie, the last of 15 known attempts on his life.

1969 — Apollo 11 lands on the Moon in the Sea of Tranquility. Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon later that day.

1973 — Bruce Lee (born Lee Jun-fan) died in Hong Kong from an allergic reaction to Equagesic, a painkiller made of the generally benign combination of aspirin and meprobamate. The martial arts master was only 32 years old.

1977 — A Freedom of Information Act request forces the CIA to acknowledge Project MKUltra, the code name of a U.S. government research operation experimenting in the behavioral engineering of humans.

Ordell Braase (undated)

A two-time Pro Bowl selection, Braase played 12 seasons for the Baltimore Colts, winning back-to-back NFL championships during the pre-Super Bowl era. He still lives in the Baltimore area.

Providence has been pleased to give this one connected country to one united people — a people descended from the same ancestors, speaking the same language, professing the same religion, attached to the same principles of government, very similar in their manners and customs …

Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.

Thank you.

I will always re-blog this

“Overwhelming majority”? Categorically false.

While it’s true that Old West cowboys came from a variety of backgrounds, the expansion of the cattle industry following the Civil War drew former soldiers from both the Union and Confederacy to find work, as did large numbers of restless White men in general.

Census records suggest that approximately 15% of all cowboys were of African-American ancestry. Other estimates suggest that perhaps one out of every three cowboys in the second half of the 19th century was Hispanic.

As usual, blogs like this launch one attack after another claiming that White culture has raped and pillaged its way to supremacy, leaving nothing but destitution for others in its path. A more comprehensive look tells a different story.
