Arminius | 1034 comments Yes I am an oddball who enjoys President's day.

To celebrate I read a book about FDR. I didn't expect to be done it by now though. So, I will try to start a book about Herbert Hoover today.

I watched a C-Span BookNotes interview on a book about President Franklin Pierce on Saturday. I will watch another C-Span BookNotes interview about another President today.

I will also thank America's best president for our great country. Thank You President Washington you opened the world up to freedom and started the greatest country in world history.

Aynge (ayngemac) | 1202 comments I think it sucks that they combined Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays into one holiday. Each deserves his own day of honor.

People make a fuss about getting a 3-day weekend, but I think it's more important that we celebrate on the actual day of whatever it is we are commemorating.

Arminius | 1034 comments I agree with you. Washington deserves his own holiday. The father of our country does not have a holiday unto himself, that is a shame!

Arminius | 1034 comments I can feel the outrage about this from the other TCers.

Arminius | 1034 comments That is most likely true and I am all for honoring the presidents. However, George Washington is not just a president. Without him there would be no independent United States to become full of idiots, as it is now, to dismiss his importance.
