Hey, good one! There are NO GREATER RACISTS (and thieves) than the CBC race hustler types. Jessuh Junior is so corrupt they are running him out of Congress, just not saying so publicly. And the ObaMessiah revealed hi TRUE colors when he went off-teleprompter to say that "the Cambridge police acted stupidly"-- his Yiddish handlers (Axelrod, Emanuel, Plouffe, etc.) did not let him risk another presser for almost a year after that one!
It's often good fun and sometimes revealing to divide American history into distinct periods of uniform length. In working on my forthcoming book on American migrations, internal and immigrant, it occurred to me that you could do this using the American-sounding interval of 76 years, just a few years more than the Biblical lifespan of three score and 10.

It was 76 years from Washington's First Inaugural in 1789 to Lincoln's Second Inaugural in 1865. It was 76 years from the surrender at Appomattox Courthouse in 1865 to the attack at Pearl Harbor in 1941.

Going backward, it was 76 years...
