Merry Christmas to All! 

This Day in History | 1914

Just after midnight on Christmas morning, the majority of German troops engaged in World War I cease firing their guns and artillery and commence to sing Christmas carols. At certain points along the eastern and western fronts, the soldiers of Russia, France, and Britain even heard brass bands joining the Germans in their joyous singing.

Good Morning Middle Americans, 

On this Christmas, I just want to send huge THANK YOU and a warm holiday message to all our subscribers out there in Middle America, the most important part of our nation.  

When we talk about Middle America, we aren’t just talking about the states between the coastal enclaves of the nation’s super-rich elites. We aren’t just talking about the middle class families, those that work too hard at a their jobs, and at homes to really complain too much about the state of our politics in this country.  We aren’t just talking about those who don’t buy the bull shat from either political party. We are talking about all of those things together. 

We took some time to read your comments and we are humbled by your kinds words.

Cynthia from Kentucky sent this to us: “Hello, just wanted to say, I liked this blog post. It was funny. Keep on posting!”

Milo from Denver wrote: “Thanks for one’s marvelous posting! I definitely enjoyed reading it, you can be a great author.I will ensure that I bookmark your blog and will come

back later on. I want to encourage you to continue your great work,

have a nice evening!”

There were some negative comments too, but since this is supposed to be a happy day, we’ll leave those for another time. 

We sincerely want to thank you for you comments and please keep them coming.

We have a big year planned ahead for 2020. So please tell your friends and family about us and help us spread the word. 

Over the next week, we are going to mark the seven biggest stories of the year.  Not necessarily in any order, but they are all stories that had a huge impact on 2019, or they will be stories that we continue to talk about in 2020. 

We’ll be back with our regular content tomorrow as well, but for now, on Christmas, we’ll just start the countdown. 

Read all about it!

7) – The Women’s World Cup and the Equal Pay Movement

As Buzzfeed accurately reported, it wasn’t just 2019, it was really their success over the last decade that defines the US women’s national team. But that success culminated this year with a victory bigger than any trophy.  2019 was the year that women sued their employer for equal pay. The suit is still pending, but they’ve won the respect of a nation.  And their suit could change sports for ever.
