TBD on Ning

Post something from history you remember from each day of the month...Each new day has something from history to reflect upon. It can be something you remember from your own past if you choose......Just have fun with it.

Discussions on subjects welcome. There may be only one subject or there could be many in one day...depends on how many people respond, but subjects will be changing as the days change, so try not to let any discussions lead into the next days discussions. Hope we can keep it going..should be interesting seeing what people come up with.Today is Jan 26th so I am posting this to start us off:

7th February, 2010 : The former vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin, has spoken at the first US Tea Party convention, where she has urged for a return to conservative principles. Speaking in Nashville, Mrs. Palin called President Obama's 2011 budget 'immoral' and said it would raise the U.S. debt. The Tea Party movement includes many people who oppose Obama's plans for healthcare reform and stimulus package. Mrs. Palin has said that future generations will be paying for his spending.
