When one takes a serious look back at how the far left progressive agenda has wounded and crippled our country, one of the saddest days' we
HONOR, or now celebrate, is President's Day.
Who better to help drive our country down the progressive, socialist toilet than the first muslim, illegal alien potus, barack obama. Will he use this day to promote himself and his perverted American hating agenda? That would be a bet I would wager on, for sure.
How does moochelle honor this day? She is skiing in Aspen, Colorado, taking over the home of the uber wealthy Crown family, owners of The Aspen Ski Company. The Crown family is deeply intertwined with the obama's and they too, hail from Chicagostan. America honors this day with people shopping and flocking to mega sales and some people, mostly those who are employed by the government, have the day off from work.
When I was in school, it was Washington's Birthday and that is what we learned about. It was not President's day and in all honesty, we have quite a few presidents who are NOT worth remembering. obama is right there at the top of this list.
The removal of Washington from this day can be traced back to the passage of The Uniform Monday Holiday Act – is absurd, much like the mush it inspired. Debating the bill, Rep. Dan Kuykendall (R-TN), foresaw the outcome:
“If we do this - change the date of the Washington holiday – ten years from now our children will not know what February 22 means. They will not know or care when George Washington was born. They will know only that in the middle of February, they will have a three-day weekend for some reason…. This will come.”
"In his Farewell Address, Washington’s advice to the nation was to uphold the Constitution and the rule of law, protect American independence, and encourage morality and religion. The reading of the Farewell Address in the Senate remains an annual event, even if his advice is ignored there."
"George Washington was a man of honor known for his great leadership and character.
“Wherever men love liberty, wherever they believe in patriotism, wherever they exalt high character, by universal consent they turn to the name of George Washington,” said Calvin Coolidge. “No occasion could be conceived more worthy, more truly and comprehensible American, than that which is chosen to commemorate this divinely appointed captain."
If you want to read a great book on how the progressive left has rewritten American history let me suggest this one: The Rewriting of America's History by Catherine Millard. Read this and I guarantee you will become angry, extremely angry at what has been done to the true history of our country.
We need a POTUS like George Washington today, more than ever.

George Who? What Happened To Washington’s Birthday?
By Floyd and Mary Beth Brown
“If we do this [change the date of the Washington holiday celebration], ten years from now our school children will not know what February 22 means. They will not know or care when George Washington was born. They will know that in the middle of February they will have a three-day weekend for some reason. This will come.” These prophetic words, passionately argued by Tennessee Congressman Dan Kuykendall more than 40 years ago, have come true. Ask most school kids today why February 22nd is special, and they will probably give you a blank stare.
The passage of the Uniform Monday Federal Holiday Law in 1968 triggered an avalanche that would bury “the father of our country,” along with his guiding virtues and reminders of how and why the U.S. was born.
Washington inspired his contemporaries and countless American s since, motivating others to emulate him. Washington set the gold standard for presidents and private character. “His example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting,” wrote John Marshall in Washington’s official eulogy. “The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues.”
“More than any other,” says Matthew Spalding, Ph.D., Washington “made possible our republican form of government.”
When we grew up, celebrating George Washington’s birthday was a big deal, and you couldn’t help but be inspired by him. We studied him, what he stood for and what he did to bring America to fruition. Mary Beth’s grandmother, a patriotic American if you ever met one, loved that she shared the same birth date with Washington, always having a birthday cake covered with cherries and American flags.
