    I didn't even realize it was columbus day until I stopped by my bank and saw that those lazy asses didn't bother coming to work. :)

    And yeah, the story in that link is likely more truthful than what we've been taught, the so-called winners get to write the history.

    A lot of these made-up holidays are used mostly to curry favor among some subsection of the population, sell more hallmark cards, and give gov't employees yet another paid day off.

    I am one who thinks the entire world should run on commission. You don't do something useful, you don't get paid.

    Engaging in pedophilia to honor Columbus.....that would be kinda like cheating on your wife to honor Kennedy....or getting $#!+faced drunk to honor Grants victory in the War of Northern Aggression.....just worse.
  8. Let's give everything we own back to the "First Americans", which according to the earliest dated remains, migrated from the Russian Caucuses to settle in the Columbia River valley about 18,000 years ago.

    DerHoggz, you go first.

    By working. A little research reveals what a horrible man Columbus was. Worthy of a Federal (or any other kind) holiday?


    Celebrate by educating people on what he was really like.

    Celebrate? I hadn't thought of that. Will pizza do?
    History is full of horrible men that are remembered as great.
    We could start with the Roman Empire if you like or any other era.

    I plan to invade a small town and give several people syphilis.
    Then I'll do a little pillaging and massacring until I get too tired.
    Finally, I'll go home, snarf down a plate of spaghetti and fall asleep on the couch.
