Amirite?
now you can be right wherever you are.

A 2 part proposition - - 1) Who deserves a holiday named in their honor? 2) Which current holiday should be axed to make way for this new holiday?

1. President Obama 2. No current holiday, just make a new one....say May 1 and call it Obama Day.

That is the greatest idea yet. I hope everyone agrees. Do you think so?

Haters? The PC term is "those who disagree"... (think) Well, maybe I'll stick around.

Nice try. I used to like being whipped - as you know - but I've grown tired of that kind of foreplay. (6)(maniac)

1. President Trump 2. No current holiday, just wait until the new one for President Obama is implemented, and then change it. Or...take the same day - 1/2 for Obama and 1/2 for Trump. Maybe even alternate each minute of that day back & forth..lol (hehe)(hehe)(hehe)

I like your "Or" option best. Obama would represent the working hours when stuff gets done. The 12 hr night shift can be the Trump half... time for tweeting, watching Hannity, binge eating cheeseburgers... (hehe)

Hey..it would be a holiday. Obama would be at Martha's Vineyard with the media celebrating his golf game. Trump would be at Mara Lago with the media vilifying his golf game. (hehe)

So THAT's why Obama and Trump get laughed at by one of the two 1/2's of the country at any given time.(hehe)

Thank God for laughter. What if we were "living" in Putin's Russia? (shock)

Agreed. Or Kim's North Korea, officially known as "Democratic People's Republic of Korea"? It's anything but what the official name touts.

The Democrat People's Republic of Korea... makes no sense, eh?

(Did you leave out the "ic" on Democratic intentionally?) The official name makes no sense IMO - It's not "Democratic" It's not the "People's" It's not a "Republic" Or, is it?
says _Howler_ on May 14th 18 (#2760911)

About the missing "ic" - good guess (biggrin) NK can call itself anything it wants. It doesn't necessarily make it so. Any nation can for that matter.
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760913)
Reply | +1 | 1

Sure a nation can. No reason for NK to officially name itself the "Totalitarian Inhumane Dictatorship of Korea". The official name as it is sounds much more appealing.

Uh huh. What if some in your great nation get their way and Texas and/or California secede? Will it still be the United States of America?
says Chuck_Tom on May 14th 18 (#2760923)
Reply | +1 | 1

"Still be"? Just because no states have yet seceded doesn't mean they are "united"...except for those emotional "kumbaya" moments, (and then nobody means it any longer after the emotion wears off). And the fact that the U.S. legislative body which makes up representatives from each state still take their scheduled vacations together after a few months in DC of posing as representatives of those "united" states.

Add Louisa May Alcott Day and get rid of Sweetest Day (people get enough mush from Valentine's Day.) http://data.amirite.net/user_im...9be9acc49a.jpg

Benjamin Franklin. His accomplishments speak for themselves. Since Columbus didn't discover America, we'll eliminate Columbus Day.

Pretty tough call, since even Jesus himself doesn't have his own holiday anymore. But MLK Jr. DOES!!

Christmas? Easter? Jesus has 2 entire holiday SEASONS. MLK was a pretty good dude.

Christmas is now "The Holidays"...and Easter (Easter eggs are now called "spring spheres") doesn't contain Christ's name. Yeah, MLK was OK, for a riot agitator.

Christmas is still Christmas, no matter what the PC douchebags try to tell you. Easter doesn't need his name; it's all about his sacrifice. MLK preached peace; his followers were really bad listeners.

Got it. Yeah, I was referring more to the national chain department store and Mall mindset and their TV commercials. For 10 years, you couldn't see "Merry Christmas" anywhere in any national department store. Glad the public rebelled. It will always be Merry Christmas out of my mouth too.

Merry christmas has always been in the mouths of people here. It never went anywhere. Happy holidays has also always been a vocal greeting or parting words. Hanukkah, christmas, new years. Holidays.....
