    June 28th, 1914; a Quite Historic Date Indeed! Not Just Stonewall...Talk about a CASUS BELLI!

    Earlier this evening, I was casually browsing Wikipedia's June 28th page of "this day in history"(as is my wont) and noticed something astonishing!! We as a planet, are one year shy from marking the 100th Anniversary of the first true "shot heard 'round the world!"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassi...ranz_Ferdinand

    Ironic how much Serbia/Slavo-Macedonia and Bosnia/Croatia wanted to be married to one-another, then. Nowadays, they can barely stand eachother!

    The Yugoslav Experiment might have worked too, if it hadn't been for the Bolsheviks, Germans and later Soviets meddling in their governmental affairs.

    Talk about being on the wrong side of history!

    What do you Worldly Jubbers think about this thought-provoking moment in history?

    A small self-penned ode to the sad Balkan affair:

    Mid-Summer's Eve, Sarajevo in '14,
    Gavrilo gunned down 'Nando; Sofie did scream
    Wein blamed Belgrade, France, Moskva; ghosts unseen
    Powder Keg lit, Kaiser eyed Flanders' North Sea
    Four years, mil-yons dead; fought with Ford's war machines
    A Dark Age, Hence...Red October '17
    One-Hundred Years Shy...Pray tell, what could have been?

    I felt the need to bump this only because WWI, Communism, the End of European Imperialism and the rise of the "Nation-State" shaped so much of what happened to us collectively in the last 100 years...Maybe I should have started this thread in Current Events and Politics? Is it too late to request it to be moved from Hot Topics?

    Thank you all for your time.

    Thank you, Moderators!

    So CE & P thread contributors...what do you think about it being 99 years after "the powder keg" in Europe getting its spark?

    I think the leaders we have today aren't of much higher caliber and would stumble in the same paths of idiocy should the opportunity present itself.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "
