    It's a useful nationalistic holiday with a decent chunk of historical viability for European colonial settlement and exploration.

    Disgusting. And the lies our "educators" tell us in school are also awful. Reminds me of the Thanksgiving Day lies.

    Yes, Columbus day should be eliminated.

    No, it should not be replaced with some political correctness of an obscure unknown.

    I must say that I'm glad you lefties are able to educate the rest of the folks in this country
    that we are indeed the most horrific nation ever founded in the history of mankind.

    True Modern Science began with these explorers, whether you like their personals or not..
    Not liking personals seems to be a 'man' thing..
    Different century, same warring and hatred and personals..
    I didn't say 'woman, I said 'man'.

    I don't know what you're talking about. Not liking personals? What does that even mean?

    I'm not talking about the nation. I'm talking about Cristóbal Colón.
