  • Columbus Day

    What the hec is this day supposed to represent?
    Its outrageous From my point of view!!!
    The parades, the cruel and clueless representation of a murderer and his posse!!! The most ridiculous and silly day that could ever exist, considering we all know this country is now called "America".

    I totally agree with you CIgirl:

    This is one of those age old celebrations that has slipped through the cracks and is still celebrated by the majority of Americans.

    "Columbus Day = Federal Holiday = Non Acknowledgement that Columbus DIDN'T Discover America by the United States Government!"

    Some tribal governments call this holiday something else other than Columbus Day - and give their tribal employees the day off.
    Powwows will continue to evolve in many directions. It is inevitable.

        I like to refer to this as "Invasion Day" or we can call it "A-Day" for america day. This is what happens when our border patrol took a day off, look at the refugees that showed up on our doorstep. Well, we helped them out, gave them some food and they decided to stay and never went back home. They brought death and diesese, but thats OK, we gave them tabbaco. Let everyone know that your celebrating Invasion day, carry a helmet and binoculers and tell them your waiting for the next wave. Have fun out there.

                Man, I was flippin through the radio this morning and heard this idiot say that columbus was justified in what he did, because he was a missionary and he brought "god" into a savage world.

                  what was this guy fed in school? this website is great i suggest you call that radio station and tell them to visit it...

                  in my opinion... this guy would have to be below 2nd grade textbook level in order to say something so ridiculous. genocide is not something to take lightly. thats what the bottom line is to me anyway. keep on letting people know. the past is the present and so on...

                  > remind ya'll of anyone???

                    C-Day wasn't even a holiday til the 1970's. To have it abolished is my plan. The man came here to take slaves; he tortured and killed many people... And he gets a 'holiday'??? ~Kat

                        This cracked me up.

                        (if Columbus made it to the islands in the Pacific, he'd been a lot closer to his goal.) :D

                          I don't like columbus and his mother F%$&in white posse that exterminated a lot of our people and i dont think we should celebrate his discovery in the americas. Remember we were here first!!!!!!!!!!

                            Well if Christopher Columbus gets his own holiday for killing people and destroyin one's race. Then the "Americans" misewell give Charles Manson his own holiday too for doin tha exact same ****. I personally can't stand "Columbus Day". He never did anything except for bein a drunk european that one day found himself hungover on Our Native Land.

                                When : July 15th

                                Today is Cow Appreciation Day. And, that's no bull! But, it is something to "Moo" about.

                                Our appreciation for cows can be expressed in many ways. Some websites suggest you go out and give a cow a big hug and/or a kiss. While it might sound like...

                                When I was a kid, my family had a tradition that on every columbus day we didn't have to go to school.
                                We called this Indian Skip Day. I can remember how my teachers would play this guy up like he was some kind of hero or something, and I was kicked out of class more than once for telling it...
