    May Day is celebrated in many parts of the world , and universally acknowledged as Worker's Day. So what is the issue with having it as a holiday here? They can keep Washington and Lincoln's birthdays too.

    Yes we do, it is the first Monday of Sep.

    I suppose the argument can be made then why have a May Day also. I am indifferent on having a May Day holiday. If they have one , it's fine . If they don't have one, it's fine also.

    If you already have a "workers" holiday, why do you need another?

    Sure we can do that, its just the idea of lessening Washington's Birthday that is the issue.
    We can get rid of Lincoln and I'd be all for it. He was a tyrant and a war criminal. I personally think the rape of the South should be taught as a cautionary tale of government over reach. Remember we could have bought the slaves.



    But George Washington was the Founder of our nation and every American child should be taught to emulate the values he held and learn his history.

    The Southern plantation bigwigs would just have bought new slaves from the Trans-Atlantic slave traders. They would not have given up their free source of labor.

    We'll then I apologize. I have Fox News and CNN connected to my Facebook feed. I read the article and thought it could warrant a discussion.

    This seems to be much to do about nothing. Like I said earlier though I don't mind being wrong, but it wouldn't hurt to use a little tact when correcting somebody.

    Either way I should have done a little more digging before I linked a story from a partisan news source.
