Today, marks what would’ve been our nations’ leader’s 283 Birthday.
In 1968, congress did away with recognizing President Washington’s birthday on February, 22, to provide government bureaucrats and their staff to get their 3-day weekends, which has become commercially known as Presidents Day Sales for the retail industry.
Sometimes, I wonder what all of our Founding Fathers would think if they saw their gift to us today.
My thoughts are that they would be repulsed at what we’ve allowed their dream to become. I wouldn’t blame them.
At least there is record of what General Washington, thought of this.
