The Battle of Dunkirk never ceases to amaze me. The fact that British civilians were able to rescue about 200,000 British and French soldiers is incredible. The French were unprepared for the German's attack..
... because the attack was supposed to be impossible. When the Germans made it through dense forests, the Allies were stunned and unprepared. But the fatal mistake was when Germany ordered a halt to rest and resupply. In this 3 days, the Allies were able to arrange the evacuations.
“The Germans initiated a 3-day halt that allowed the evac.”
Roseanne Barr's tweet and actions are so inexcusable. She's put hundreds of people out of work. Valerie Jarrett's response is so on point-- it's a "teachable moment". Way to rise above! how do you all feel about this teachable moment?
Everyone talks about the Civil War when history comes up, but people forget about the fascinating period that followed it: The Reconstruction Era. Remember 40 acres and a mule? That's what everyone remembers.
Apparently people are happily forking over tens to hundreds to thousands of dollars for chunks of the Berlin wall. This strikes me as strange, as pieces of this wall are not by any stretch of the imagination, rare.
