Thread: George Washington's Birthday today ...

  1. #1

    Lightbulb George Washington's Birthday today ...

    .... and to think that our current president started it off tweeting that American citizens who have recently attended "town hall" meetings around the country are "so-called".

    But then again, the current president is the one who declared in 1997 that his difficulties avoiding STDs while dating multiple women were his personal Viet Nam.

    No war or politics here, folks. Just celebrating one of our presidents.

    The specific day was supposed to be in recognition and tribute to our first president, George Washington, the 'Father of Our Country". The 'holiday' was supposed to be a combination of his birthday and that of Abraham Lincoln, who, in the very strongest sense, saved this country. Regardless of your political bent, the day WAS NOT and SHOULD NOT be treated as a commemoration to the other 43 who have held the office.

    My favorite George Washington quote: "Guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism."
    There have never in history been so many opportunities to do so many things that aren't worth doing. - William Gaddis
