Erin Burnett looks back at the life and career of Margaret Thatcher.
Yeah, they were also ahead of the curve on abolition of slavery, too. Read that it was 1807 that William Wilberforce pushed that thru Parliament. While there were some abolitionist founding fathers, like John & JQ Adams, they for sure weren't in the majority. In fact one of the biggest embarrassments re: to the War of 1812 was that the Brits would allow runaway slaves in Canada British citizenship if they signed on as redcoats.
Then again, if you look at the Amritsar massacre in India in the 1940s, they may not be THAT far ahead of the curve.
Still nowhere I'd rather be & nowhere I'd rather be from than "somewhere in Middle America."
