How Apropos to the Current Hot Issue...

Today is the 170th anniversary of the defeat of Santa Anna by Sam Houston at San Jacinto. Remember Goliad! Remember The Alamo!

That Santa Anna is the same guy referred to as "The Napoleon of the West", which made even more sense after the Battle of San Jacinto seeing as Santa Anna and Napoleon could best Spaniards and the French, but had no luck against English speakers.
