This Day in History: Stocks, Horses, and Gays

As part of our “Summer Streamlining” The Conservative Journal is please to introduce the latest new feature: “This Day in History”!  The “This Day in History” posts will consist of the most important events that happened on that date of years in the past, as well as some less-than-important information to lighten the mood.  Here’s the first “This Day in History” post, enjoy:

May 17th

  • 1792- The New York Stock Exchange formed.  I wonder how much a share of Ye Olde Trading Post cost?
  • 1849- St. Louis was nearly burnt to a crisp by a massive fire.
  • 1875- The First Kentucky Derby is held.
  • 1954- The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously passes Brown v. Board of Education, ending segregation in public schools.
  • 1973- Televised Senate hearings begin regarding the Watergate Scandal.
  • 1992- The World Health Organization finally takes Homosexuality off of its list of illnesses.
  • 2004- Massachusetts becomes the first U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage.  Somewhere, Barney Frank is smiling.

TCJ Seal of Approval: Miss California, Carrie Prejean

I am pleased to announce that California’s Carrie Prejean is the latest recipient of The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval!

Ms. Prejean spoke out with her conservative beliefs even though she knew they would be unpopular with gay judge Perez Hilton, which is something not everyone would do.  Not only does she win this award for standing up for what she believes in, but also for how she said it.  She wasn’t rude or condescending, and handled herself very well on the Miss USA stage when answering the question.  The fact that this question more than likely cost her the competition is quite upsetting, but I am still proud of Ms. Prejean for standing up for conservative values and not wavering from what she has known her whole life.  If only more people were like her!

Video of the Day: National Organization for Marriage Video

If you’ve somehow missed the NOM Ad against same-sex marriage, you’ve got to watch it below.  As a Christian Conservative, I define marriage as between a man and a woman.  However, this ad is ridiculous.  I consider myself to be quite conservative, but in no way do I think a storm is going to suck me up if same-sex marriage becomes legal throughout the country (alright, I know that’s not what they’re saying, but it’s close.).  A lot of the lines leave me puzzled, so watch it for yourself and let everyone know what you think!

Video of the Day: Miss California on Gay Marriage

In case you missed Miss California speaking out against gay marriage when she was asked if the U.S. should legalize gay marriage across the board, here is the video for you to watch below.

I applaud Miss California, and if it’s any consolation, tomorrow I plan to award her with “The Conservative Journal Seal of Approval” tomorrow.  Not quite as big of a deal as “Miss USA”, but it’ll do.
