"Hear me ROAR!!"


Did you know that PRESIDENT'S DAY WAS  CREATED TO HONOR our FIRST President, GEORGE WASHINGTON? "Washington's Birthday is a United States federal holiday celebrated on the third Monday of February in honor of George Washington, the first President of the United States, who was born on February 22, 1732.Wikipedia "

  1. When my human was a kid, she says there were TWO president's days in February, one for Washington and one for Lincoln. She doesn't remember when they got combined, but she felt like she was getting cheated with a 2 for 1 holiday.

    1. actually what you are remembering is Abraham Lincoln's birthday is February 12, and Washington's is February 22nd......like you, I thought President's Day was created to celebrate both of their birthdays together (which I always hated when they did that)...then...when I was googling before posting.......all they are listing is Washington and NOT Lincoln! Do you freakin' believe it????? No matter what, I don't like the "2 for 1" thing either!

  2. If freedom of speech is taken away, that is one BIG reason for impeachment.

    Freedom of speech is so important. It's one of the "base" of democracy.

  10. George Washington was an interesting man, and he deserves all the accolades that we can heap upon him, even after all this time.
