    That is exactly what Andrew Jackson did to the Five civilized tribes--then sent them on The Trail of Tears....

    I wonder why...maybe because they were the last to get crushed... Or else they got the term from Canada....

    Down where I live, Columbus Day isn't celebrated anymore. All it is is a day off for government workers and banks. A far cry from the festivities when I was a kid growing up in the 50's. Heck, even the grandkids have to go to school on Columbus Day. So as far as I am concerned, it really isn't a holiday anymore, just a day off for some while most work. Heck, I haven't even seen the stores put on Columbus Day sales that use to happen.

    Since Columbus Day really doesn't mean anything anymore, it might as well be done away with. Not for the reasons you cited, but that it has really become just a dead holiday. Better just call it a dead day off for some. I don't care whether it stays or goes.

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    now there is an idea, replace Columbus Day with Tax Day. I say we make April 15th a Holiday. We should at least get a day off for all the money the government takes from us.
