darkly amusing given the pill issues on long island among the white population. not sure what they blame that on.
Trump blamed that on the Mexicans during his campaign ("they're bringing in the drugs, that's why we need A Wall"), which probably played a good part in how he won.

I'd like it very much if more people would take the "well, that's not really my cup of tea, but I'm glad you've found something that you enjoy" stance.

Apparently, that's just not How Things Are Done.

They got Russia's date wrong too; IIRC the serfs weren't freed until the 1860s.

Come to think of it, wasn't Brazil's emancipation law something like a generation later than the US Civil War? Jesus, they got damned near everything wrong here.

Wokieleaks speculates that the writer created a bulletpoint list with auto-formatting in Word, and didn't even bother entering dates, which is why the years are sequential. 'Cause while the 1797 date is funny, all of the dates after France are obviously wrong.
Guess I should find a funny sig, huh?

What sort of auto-format has bullets and numbers? I've only seen one or the other.

Good point, but you can remove bulletpoint from the description; hypothesis is that he was using a list function and paying no attention to the dates. Bulletpoints could be formatted in later. Auto-format has to be the culprit at some stage, combined with complete negligence by the writer and editors. Assuming the site's posts are edited at all before they go up.
