Since my last post got so much attention, I'll post something that was just a bit more tragic in the failure.

The July 20, plot to assassinate  der schikelgruber.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/20_July_plot

The recent movie Valkryie was loosely based on this plot although the name Valkryie was not part of the actual assassination plot but the takeover of the knot-z command structure.

Please note. This has nothing to do with any other event that is dated July 20 at all. Past, present, or future.

Today is VJ Day. Victory over Japan in 1945.

I have to thank God because had the war continued, I might never have been. One of my Grand Dads had been drafted and was scheduled to be included in the Invasion of the Japanese home Islands.

Casualties had been expected to be horrendous.

My father was shot down over France, spent more than a year in a Nazi prison camp, upon being liberated was sent home on a month’s leave for his mother to fatten him up (he was six feet and got home weighing just over 100-pounds) then reported to Texas for training in newer aircraft to continue the war against Japan. He was pretty happy about VJ Day, too.

It’s interesting to me that we didn’t hear the usual anti-nuke hysteria on Hiroshima and Nagasaki days. I guess even that is fading from memory.

August 23, 1939. The day in history when diplomats from the international socialists and diplomats from the national socialists decided to meet and and greet and divide Poland. By force of arms.

Murdering and conquering.

It's what any kind of socialist is best at. Don't believe me? Just look up the body counts from the Holodomor or the cultural revolution in chicommuna.  Those are just a teaser. You can find more if you look.
