What a historical week. Even if you dont support OUR new President you have to agree this week is historical. The Irony of the inauguration following MLK day kinda gives me goose bumps.

You need to use a dictionary, this situation is nothing like irony.

Presidents' Day is in honor of both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I suppose you'll split the hair that it's not actually NAMED after one of them.

Hey Dan.

Yeah. There aren't any holidays dedicated to white people.?????? Gosh, what will we poor white people do? Blah on political correctness. Yeah, this is getting waaaay out of hand.

**please do not let the sarcasm flow above your head too far!**

Go ahead and shut up now! No one is holding a gun to your head to make you honor this holiday. Get over it. President's Day is around the corner. We can all honor white guys then. Thanks.

Have a great day. God Bless!

Although I am NOT an Obama fan I have to say that no matter who our president is, we as a nation need to uplift him and pray for him. This is the most difficult job there is and it doesn't matter what color you are, you need prayer. We should do this for all political offices...even our Tulsa mayor. Which is difficult...LOL

You are very right! Maybe white people are just jealous they don't get off work for Presidents day.

SumR, thanks for proving my point. You cant name one national holiday named after a white man. I have nothing against MLK. Give the race thing a rest. After tomorrow Presidents day will have nothing to do with white people. A half white (the part of Barack that he has denounced) and half black man will be our President. I did not vote for him but will respect him as our President. I just get sick of the race crap!!

MLK wanted people judged by the content of their charicter not the color of their skin. So why is so historical about this week? Your excitement goes against what MLK wanted.

oh bite me seriously. It wasn't me thinking that. I was simply thinking maybe that's why most white people make a big deal about MLK day. I could care less about it one way or the other.

People argue this holiday and never even took the time to listen to what the man said. I have no problem honnoring a great man, but do not honnor the color of his skin but the content of his character.
