First, that this has not been a kind day to Jewish people..
On February 22nd, 1349, they were expelled from Zurich, Switzerland, in 1775 they were expelled from Warsaw, Poland and in 1941 the evil Nazis started rounding them up in Amsterdam, Holland.
Add to that a bomb attack in Jerusalem by Muslim Arabs in 1948 that killed 50 (Arab Muslims.. Terrorists? Noo...!) and it would be understandable if any Jewish person did not wish to celebrate today..
Over the last 161 years, there have been 19 Republican Presidents counting Trump.. In the same span, there have been 12 Democrats though to be fair, FDR did serve for 4 terms with of course Truman becoming President in 1945 to finish the 4th term when FDR died..
But of course the most important event that Americans should care about is today is Washington's birthday..
Well, the guy with dreams who provoked violence and confrontation in the South to get his way got his 'day' to be a government holiday while Washington, one of if not The most Important Americans ever, was shoved in with a bunch of others ranked from good to garbage in what we call 'Presidents' Day'
Honestly we can't see Washington being all that happy..
Maybe its a 1700's thing but we just see him being more sickened then pleased..
Washington always believed America should worry about itself and not concern itself with the affairs of other nations when it did not directly pertain to us..
So we don't think he'd be all that keen seeing that the President is now regarded as the most powerful man in the free world and worrying about the rots of the peoples of the globe..
Not sure what Washington's feelings were on illegal immigration but we can't imagine he would be happy to welcome violent, hate filled people from backwards civilizations that believe in a cult-faith that is 800 years behind the times
And we can't imagine he being too pleased that his beloved home Mt Vernon was now a tourist attraction where tour guides distort and alter its history in their presentations as to be politically correct and sensitive to descendants of slaves
Maybe he'd take some comfort that the US is the Superior in the 'Special' relationship
Bet he'd also be amazed that France, once among the greatest nations in the world is now pretty much 2nd tier, at least militarily
Popular views of the day that the vast majority believed suddenly becomes 'incorrect' or 'racist' later in time.. Allies become enemies.. Enemies become friends..
Just think.. A couple hundred years from now, people could look at the period we live in today and think 'Amazing how much of complete Worthless Idiots those Democrats were - no wonder the Party collapsed and dissolved!' as Trump is possibly looked upon in the future as among the greatest Presidents ever
Maybe in two centuries blacks will officially take over the world and subjugate 'whitey' just like the Caucasian race-guilters and the militant BLM garbage dream..
Or maybe 2217 will be like it was in 1807.. Who knows..
The technology, clothing and hairstyles change but not much else..
We would like to think that even though Washington would look at 2017 America and the modern political/social mindsets of at least 50% of the nation with complete revulsion (psst, they're called liberals), that he still would not regret the sacrifices he made as General then President to ensure we had a nation which would flourish and grow...
He was a man far Superior and Important to this nation Dr King or any other Black History figure shoved down our throats during this month ever was or could be..
A man deserving once more of his own special government observed holiday
Hopefully in the future, the situation among the two will be properly rectified.
