April the Twenty-second

This day in history:

April 22, 1864

The US Congress authorized the use of the phrase ''In God We Trust'' on U.S. coins. The added phrase "...and the ACLU can just go jump in a lake" was narrowly defeated.


April 22, 1889

Oklahoma land rush “officially” started. The term Sooners referred to those who had sneaked in before the start, to claim land. Native Americans were less than pleased and are now exacting revenge by flooding the state with hideous Casinos that drain state and local economies, escalate the crime rate while not paying any taxes.


April 22, 1993

The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum was dedicated in Washington, D.C.


April 22, 1994

Richard Milhouse Nixon, the 37th president of the United States, died at age 81 in New York City, four days after suffering a stroke.


April 22, 2000

In a pre-dawn raid, armed agents of the US Immigration and Naturalization Services, defied a court order which had given 6-year old Elian Gonzales' Florida relatives custody of him and seized the child from their home in Miami. In a mock investigation the boy's father, under constant surveillance by Cuban officials, requested Elian be returned to the prison island.


April 22, 2004

NFL player Pat Tillman, who had given up a multimillion-dollar contract to serve his nation as an Army Ranger in Afghanistan, was killed. He was 27, and his memory endures as an example of a true American hero. Obviously Liberals think little of him.
