Must see to appreciate[ $184,000 by Bill ['ink The Times, Are Always As I sit in front of my typewriter, for me it will always be a typewriter albeit in a new electronic form, I've finished with the evening news highlighting the new protest in New York City about the failure of the Grand Jury to indict another policeman in the death of Eric Gamer. I have no comment today about the incident because, quite frankly I haven't followed it very closely. The city is tense, the protest crowds are large and once again the politicians and "civil rights" leaders are fueling emotions. What a great country! In America, if you have grievances you can be heard. At times, the cause may be a little off base but all in all when the cause is righteous the voice of the people will be heard. There have been a number of modern day protests that the "Time" website has called significant or one of the "top ten" protests in American history. Some of them I would have to say with tongue firmly planted in cheek, (I love and appreciate sarcasm) accomplished a lot and altered America. Not! They cite the Occupy Wall Street Movement, which accomplished (fill in the blank). And then there was the Anti Globalization Movement. Hey, one of the top ten in the Time list. What can I say? This country was not only founded on protest, our Constitution spells it out as a right that we Americans enjoy. So let's take a look at some of the significant protests in American history and what they did for America that the "behind the curve" political leaders could not. One of the early ones was the Boston Tea Party in 1773 where the tea drinking Americans hurled over forty tons of tea into Boston Harbor in protest of the taxes levied by the Brits. There was no American representative in Parliament, i.e. taxation without representation. Besides, smuggled tea from Holland, which was banned by law, was just as good and a lot cheaper. The Tea Party, a result of the Stamp Act, Townshend Act and Tea Act (all taxes on the colonies) led up to the Granddaddy of all Granddaddys of American protests, The Revolutionary War. Talk about impact, the under matched, under armed, poorly equipped American rag tag army took on "the" military monster of the day. It took blood and sacrifice but the Americans won their cause and set the tone for the American right of protest to form, shall we say, "a more perfect union". Shortly after the war the new federal government imposed a tax on distilled spirits. Farmers in the west, the west being western Pennsylvania in those days, distilled their corn and other grains into whiskey, which was so common that it became a currency of trade. Alexander Hamilton (Sec. of Treasury) initiated a program of taxes to pay war debts. The farmers of Western Pennsylvania resisted and protested violently at times in what is known as the Whiskey Proclamation it resulted in freeing of slaves in the south. In 1865 the 13th Amendment was passed ending slavery. This legislation is bigger than it appears because the allowance of slavery was a part of the Constitution. Of course the rebellion and secession of the southern states causing the Civil War rates right up there with the revolution as critical to the development of America. It set and enforced the principle that this is a nation, though made up of states with their own rights and governments, is indivisible from the federal body and increased the power of the federal government. The Women's Rights Movement beginning in the late 1840's resulted in suffrage for women in 1920. The movement made tremendous advances in the 1970's and has continued into present times. In modern times most can't believe it took America that long to give women the vote. Considering it took the progressive European country of Switzerland until 1971 before women achieved full suffrage and that women are still denied the vote throughout the world, America was ahead of the curve. The Temperance Movement actually began in the early nineteenth century with societies advocating the moderation of alcohol. It continued to gain traction' and resulted in passage of the 18th Amendment called the Vostead in 1920. It was repealed in 1933. The Labor movement in the 1930 was frequently violent, resulted in the rise of unions and fueled the fear of communism but led to the Fair Labor Act of 1938 that created the minimum wage, 40-hour workweek and many of the benefits working men and women enjoy today. The Civil Rights Movement of the mid 50's and early 60's was big. It was violent at times even thought the protagonists were peaceful. It created an upheaval in America. After marches and protests in the South and a quarter of a million people marching on Washington, it resulted in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 65. The anti-war movement of the 60's and 70's ended the Viet Nam War, toppled a Presidency and saw the rise of the counter culture and extreme political and social change. It seems to me that much of American protest and protesters were ahead of the curve while the government was slow in reacting to change. Hence the warning from a modern day poet. "Come senators, congressmen please heed the call Don't stand in the doorway don't block up the hall For he that gets hurt will be he who has stalled There's a battle outside and it is ragin' It'l soon shake your windows an~d rattle your walls For the times they are a-changin'." -- Bob Dylan Hear Ye!

Washington sent and led an army of 13,000 militia to put down the rebellion.
