    Not burkas, blindfolds. Would do away with any need for burkas if all men wore blindfolds.

    I'd vote for ending Thanksgiving, even though I love hunting wild turkey for it, and go with Cinco de Mayo. Much better to have a spring celebration- better for cookouts, family reunions and the travel associated with it, much wider selection of food, and of course beer...

    So if the other post weren't you trying to refute them what were trying to do . If you weren't trying to force your opoins why are you telling me them in the first place ? I quoted no one but you felt the need to object for what reason .

    Since I didn't see the correlation between the original celebration and death of Natives, I questioned your statement.

    Know - not "no".

    Having said that, ultimately it's not important.

    I think we need more holidays that revolve around turkey and drinking, not less. I could do without the bottle rockets, though.
