1979 was the first season that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish played with QB Joe Montana. Who of course was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in 1979 in the NFL after four solid, but not great years at Notre Dame. Danny Ford was just starting to build a college football monster at Clemson. Who took over the program in late 1978 a program that was a solid ACC contender, but he made them into a national power to the point in the 1980s winning the ACC and going to a January bowl game was expected. The only question was whether they would be playing for the national championship and how close would they get to that. They won the national championship in I believe 1981 or 82. And haven’t won it since which gives you a good idea how much Ford meant to Clemson football.

- Angelina Jolie is maybe 22 when George Wallace with Gary Sinise is shot in 1997. And yet she’s already an excellent actress at this point. As well as one of the best looking and most adorable.This is probably John F. Kennedy’s greatest quote because of the meaning of it, that he wanted Americans to be about something other than just themselves. But it also goes to the heart of his liberal democratic philosophy that he wanted America to be a free society for everyone. And not be dependent on government to take care of them.I have to agree with George Washington on this. Our Founding Fathers (our Founding Liberals) wanted to create a country where people would be free to be themselves and think for themselves. Not a country where government forces a certain set of values and beliefs on everyone else.President Jimmy Carter talking to NBC Nightly News anchor John Chancellor in 1979. This was the start of a very rough year for President Carter and the country.Eleanor Roosevelt is damn right here. Liberals believe in in liberty, not collectivism, socialism, or statism. Liberals believe in the defense of liberty. Not expansion of the state.If there is just one major accomplishment that President Jimmy Carter got out of the 2 Democratic Congress’s that he had, it was the Panama Canal Treaty. And he doesn’t get that without the help of Senate Majority Leader Robert Byrd and Senate Minority Leader Howard Baker.
