On this day in:                                           
            a. 1863 President Abraham Lincoln declared the last Thursday of November to be Thanksgiving Day.
            b. 1942 the Germans successfully launched the first object into space, the V-2, from Peenemunde.      
            c. 1990 the German Democratic Republic ceased to exist and became part of the Federal Republic of Germany. 
            d. 1995 the glove did not fit so the jury voted to acquit O.J. Simpson of the murder of his ex-wife and Ronald Goldman.
            e. 2008 the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 was signed into law by President Bush in an attempt to preserve the U.S. financial system.
Reflections on the 700 billion dollar bailout signed into law by Bush: “The federal rescue of Wall Street didn’t fix the economy – it created a permanent bailout state based on a Ponzi-like confidence scheme. And the worst may be yet to come.” Matt Taibbi, American author and journalist. Sadly, as we approach the reality that Obama will leave office with this nation having more than 20 trillion dollars of national debt, Taibbi may be right.
