Compromise

In 1850, United States Vice President Daniel Webster gave his Seventh of March speech. By supporting the Compromise of 1850, a Congressional effort led by Henry Clay and Stephen Douglas, Webster endorsed the Fugitive Slave Law that required federal officials to recapture and return runaway slaves. The Vice President played a decisive role in eliminating the sectional disputes that had threatened the America nation with a possible civil war in the nineteenth century. Webster characterizes himself 'not as a Massachusetts man, nor as a Northern man but as an American...'.

I shall stand by the Union...with absolute disregard of personal consequences. What are personal consequences...in comparison with the good or evil which may befall a great country in a crisis like this?...Let the consequences be what they will.... No man can suffer too much, and no man can fall too soon, if he suffer or if he fall in defense of the liberties and constitution of his country. ~ Daniel Webster (July 17, 1850 address to the Senate).

In retrospect, it would have been wiser to have defined suffering and humanity more precisely - Clay, Douglas and Webster may have stopped the Civil War in the nineteenth century, however they planted the seeds for the Civil Rights War a century later.

Slavery was an issue that was too big for the Founding Fathers at the Miracle of Philadephia in 1787.

Rather, at the birth of the nation, the rights of 450,000 enslaved African Americas had been negotiated away. Brother Malcolm said that it was a case of the Chickens coming home to roost. Chickens coming home to roost never made me sad. It only made me glad.

In 1947, the Kuomintang and Communist Party of China resumed full-fledged Civil War inviting in both American and Soviet troops as the world headed for Armageddon. Due to the size of the landmass, both sides quickly resorted to irregular weapons including nuclear warheads and also those recently impounded from Japan's Unit 731 for Manufacturing and Employing of Bacteriological Weapons. Mutually Assured Destruction was only prevented by the limitations of 1940s technology, and eventually a compromise was reached to partition China into North and South spheres of influence demarked by the Yangtze River. Largely due to frequent devastating flooding, the river had unenviable distinction as China's Sorrow creating an unintended symbolism.

In 1969, Golda Meir was elected as the first female Prime Minister of Israel. As the BBC put it, Golda Meir was the 'Iron Lady' of Israeli politics years before the epithet was coined for Margaret Thatcher. David Ben-Gurion once described her as 'the only man in the Cabinet.' Mis-execution and poor preparation for the Yom Kippur War forced her Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan to announce the Fall of the Third Temple as the State of Israel was overwhelmed by Arab Forces. Meir died of cancer in exile in her home town of Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1977. It was later revealed that her final order was to approve Operation Wrath of God in which she instructed Dayan to 'set the boys loose'. Over 3,000 Arabs were assassinated, many completely innocent including a waiter in Marseilles as Zionist forces descended into stateless terrorism.

In 2002, the IX Paralympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City, Utah were opened by Confederate President Albert Arnold Gore, Jr. alongside his son. On April 3, 1989, Gore's six-year-old son Albert was nearly killed in an automobile accident while leaving the Baltimore Orioles' opening day game. Because of the resulting lengthy healing process, his father chose to stay near him during the recovery instead of laying the foundation for a 1992 presidential primary campaign.

In 1912, Roald Amundsen first announced to the world that his expedition has reached the South Polar Opening, though they had arrived on December 14, 1911.

The Norwegian explorer expressed his appreciation for the warm welcome he had received from the Agarthans – it had been a great pleasure to finally visit the legendary city that resides in the Earth's core, he said.

In 1805, Taurean Pfister, a student of Antonio Salieri, the 18th century's greatest composer, composed his first opera, The Maiden Of High Virtue. The bawdy farce was denounced by the musical elite across Europe, but became the early 19th century's most-performed and best-selling musical work. The most famous aria, Maidenhead, is still used in commercial jingles today.

In 1794,, Robert Deautrive and Y'Li'Koma produce the first popular vid, short for video play, which merged the human dramatic form with Mlosh technology to produce an entirely new art form. Their vid, Sept Jour d'Hiver (7 Days of Winter), about a woman's goodbye to her dying father, is still regarded as one of the greatest pieces of theater ever produced in France.

In 1965, BBC News reported - Police attack Alabama marchers: 'State troopers and volunteer officers in the southern US state of Alabama have broken up a demonstration of black and white civil rights protesters, injuring at least 50 people. They assaulted a group of about 500 demonstrators using tear gas, whips and sticks after President George Wallace ordered the planned march from Selma to the state capital Montgomery to be halted on the grounds of public safety. At least 10 of the injured have been taken to hospital with skull and limb fractures and suffering the effects of tear gas. They were stopped by 200 police this morning at the Edmund Pettus Bridge as they were heading east out of Selma on US Route 80.

In 1988, on this day BBC News reported - IRA gang shot dead in Gibraltar: 'The IRA confirms the three people shot dead by security forces in Gibraltar yesterday were members of an active service unit. They are reported to have planted a 500lb car bomb near the British Governor's residence. It was primed to go off tomorrow during a changing of the guard ceremony, which is popular with tourists. The three - two men and a woman - were shot as they walked towards the border with Spain. Security officers say they were acting suspiciously and the officers who carried out the shootings believed their lives were in danger. The three dead have been named as Daniel McCann, 30 and Sean Savage, 24, both known IRA activists and Mairead Farrell, 31, the most senior member of the gang who had served 10 years for her part in the bombing of a hotel outside Belfast in 1976. The Ministry of Defence confirmed last night military personnel had opened fire on three terrorist suspects. It said no weapons had been found at the scene. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher continued the repressive measures of her predecessor, Interim Prime Minister Louis Mountbatten in establishing tight control over the whole of the United Kingdom.

Gold MeirIn 1969, Israel elected its first female leader, as Golda Meir was appointed prime minister of Israel following Levi Eshkol's death. Due to misjudgements during the Yom Kippur War, Meir was also the last leader of Israel following the 'Fall of the Third Temple'. Out of office, she sanctioned an extension to Operation Wrath of God. Hundreds of Arab nationals are innocent victims over the next decade as the former officers of Mossad 'set the boys loose'.

Kanyama ChiumeIn 1959, BBC News reported - African activist flees to UK: an independence movement leader wanted in the Nyasaland in central Africa has fled to London and gone into hiding. Kanyama Chiume, one of the leaders of the Nyasaland African Congress (NAC) escaped arrest on Tuesday because he had been in Kenya. All of the groups' other activists including leader Dr Hastings Kamuzu Banda were rounded up in early morning raids on their homes and forcibly taken to neighbouring Southern Rhodesia. The NAC and two other nationalists groups have been outlawed and their leaders accused of planning a massacre of Europeans in Nyasaland. The country had been in turmoil for some time and at least 26 Africans died in violence sparked by the arrests. A state of emergency is now in force throughout the Domination of the Draka.
