ObamaNation: Titanic Edition

Posted on Apr 14 2012 - 1:00am by Harrison

Today marks the 100th anniversary of the RMS Titanic striking an iceberg in the North Atlantic Ocean setting off an unstoppable chain of events that would, two hours into the next day, wind up killing 1,514 people.

The Titanic was never advertised as being “unsinkable” nor did the company which owned the ship, The White Star Line, ever call the ship that, either.  Many misconceptions have grown up around the sinking of the Titanic but one thing is for sure, the approximately 2,223 people who sailed out on the Titanic’s maiden voyage trusted the safety of the ship.

The passengers trusted the size of the ship itself to keep them safe.  How could such a large vessel float and not be safe?  Like people in general, they did not consider all possibilities.

And so, on this 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s striking of the iceberg and sinking, we remember all those who died.

And now, onto this week’s ObamaNation:

    Great article. I am going to forward it to my list.


    President Obama needs to read this article, then read Escape from Camp 14 then write 100 times on the White House blackboard, “You cannot negotiate with terrorists, You cannot negotiate with terrorists, you cannot negotiate with terrorists…”
