Happy Birthday Mr. President

When I was a kid growing up, today was a holiday.

February 22.

George Washington’s Birthday.

TPTB moved it and renamed it, and made it a 3-day weekend.

Lincoln’s birthday was the 12th, and Washington’s the 22nd.  Now, it’s just President’s Day, in the middle of Black History Month.

Go figure.

  1. I don’t know what TPBT is.
    I thought it was Nixon who signed President’s Day into law.
    I remember when President Washington had his own holiday. That was before there were so many danged holidays and three day weekends. As an entrepreneur I think there are waaaaay to many.

  2. February 6th, this year, is the 100th anniversary of President Reagan’s birthday.

  3. TPTB = the powers that be

  4. What impact does Black History month have on the situation?
