    This president was an academic. Not meant to be a politician. What a great Republican though.

    Domestic accomplishments of President Taft:
    • Carried on Theodore Roosevelt's fervor for trust-busting and broke up nearly twice as many as his predecessor
    • Strengthened the Interstate Commerce Commission and its ability to negotiate rates with railroads
    • Undertook civil service reform and improved the performance of the postal service
    • Passed the Sixteenth Amendment codifying the federal government's authority to tax income without apportioning it among the states

      Foreign policy accomplishments of President Taft:
    • Promoted "Dollar Diplomacy," which involved the US coordination of loans for infrastructure improvements abroad, to further the economic development of Latin American and Asian nations
    • Dispatched troops to safeguard U.S. citizens and property when revolution threatened in Honduras and Nicaragua, and decided not to interfere with revolutions taking place in Mexico and China

    Well, I guess we should talk about taffy instead.

    I like to get it on the Boardwalk. In Santa Cruz.

    I'll leave that one to FtM's old thread. If I make anything, I'll just stash it there. ;)
