    Re: Iowa's hardest years

    We're pretty tame with the tea party and voting out judges by these standards:

    "The Agricultural Adjustment Act of April 1933 took much of the force from the Farm Holiday movement, which in Iowa had consisted of little more than a few blocked roads.

    But Roosevelt and Wallace couldn’t stop a fresh wave of violence in the spring and summer of 1933 when the foreclosure moratorium was challenged by desperate lenders. Twice in that year, Iowa Gov. Clyde Herring declared martial law and called the Guard, complete with fixed bayonets, to keep order in Plymouth and Crawford counties.

    In LeMars, a legal challenge to the state foreclosure moratorium was met by a committee of farmers who took over the courthouse. A judge was dragged from his bench, beaten and threatened with lynching.

    A sheriff and deputies who were attempting to enforce a foreclosure were forced by an armed mob of farmers to kneel and kiss the American flag.

    That same year the Guard was called again near Denison to keep order during farm sales."

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
