    It's not an insult to recognize real genocide. Ancient bullcrap does not qualify, as it was purely profit and land driven.

    I'm glad that you agree about celebrations, though I do not celebrate any holidays.

    George Washington was of English descent. What you fail to understand Medusa is that most people who reside in America today are the descendants of immigrants. Very very FEW people can claim ancestry to the original colonists.

    I don't think you do know much about it. The only people who are really Americans are native Americans. Most of us white Americans are of European descent. America is a melting pot of different cultures and ethnicities. For example, I am Irish, Italian, English, Welch, Polish, Canadian Indian.

    Since hardly anyone celebrates Columbus Day anymore as they did in the 50's when I grew up, I say just do away with and replace it with nothing. We have more than enough federal holidays. I also would like to do away with President's day and go back to celebrating Washington's Birthday which was the way it was until Carter changed the name of it.
    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.

    I guess that's better, but probably still influenced by those crazy people up north.
