    While the rest of America stands by with their fingers in their nose, and other orifices, state by state, the America most of us knew for a lifetime is being changed.

    Do we have Obama to thank for all the changes? I say no! Even so, it is his liberal policies, and the freedom people are sensing to change things to what they see being best for America, that is to blame.

    So, if you happen to be visiting the state of Washington on October 12th .... light up some weed and forget about celebrating Columbus Day, because it is now "Indigenous Peoples' Day!"

    It's not the end of the world as we know it, BUT things are a changin' so fast, that if you over slept tomorrow, you'd be shocked at the changes you'd awake to? :smilewinkgrin:

    * Open borders [not a law, but a wink and nod from DC, make it just the same].
    * Selling recreational pot is coming to your state soon.
    * Same-sex marriage is just about to become a national pastime.
    * Terrorism is not terrorism if it happens at the workplace, or any other place within the boundaries of America?
    * English and assimilation to our culture are no longer the PC thing to do.
    * Sharia law is merging with Constitutional law.
    * The president was elected to raise funds for his political party, play golf, and take vacations to parts unknown?
    * Everyone now has low cost health care, if they can afford it that is?
    * More Americans are on welfare than working for a living.
    * Entitlement has become the rallying cry of the lazy, corruptible and illegal immigrants.

    I could go on, but what I am trying to say is, this nation is no longer what it was just twenty years earlier. Is it better now than twnety years ealier? Well, that answer depends on who you listen to! But the truth is, america is undergoing a revolution of sorts, and right before our eyes it is being changed without a shot being fired, or a vote being cast!

    And this is sad. What the liberals that taught us as teens and young folks, has slowly but surely taken over, and conservatism as we knew and loved it, is on the way out, along with democracy.

    Wow! NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV once said, "We cannot expect Americans to jump from capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving Americans small doses of socialism until they suddenly awake to find they have Communism."

    It looks as though he may have been prophetic in a way no one back in 1960 could ever have imagined! :tear:

    Well, it would probably be a more historically accurate name wouldn't it?

    If you say so! Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But if they are going to change Columbus Day, what's next? Easter? Christmas? Thanksgiving? The 4th of July?

    I'm just saying things can and will get out of hand quickly in the name of tolerance. Ask any atheist or Satanist or LGBT? What will be the next institution to be challenged and changed? Shalom!

    Why did we ever celebrate Columbus day anyway? It isn't like he ever stepped foot in this country. And he was a terribly cruel person, responsible for the deaths of about 1 million people.

    My brother is a history major, he was telling me about this a week or so ago. But government run schools aren't much on facts, so it isn't surprising that most people don't know things like this. How many people in America actually believe that Lincoln fought the Civil War to free the slaves? Leave out enough facts, and you get whatever you want out of just about anything.

    Look how many preachers do this, pick a verse here and there, never take it in context, and you get any doctrine you want.

    This is the new, liberal, radical approach to teaching anti-US history. It began in the 60's and has gathered enough steam and support to begin making its move on the populace. These folks want to paint history in a truthful way. Well, truth according to them? :BangHead:

    I know what it is. They tell half the story to paint the wrong picture. The campaign against Columbus started in the 70s early 60's

    I never understood the whole Columbus Day thing. So what? There are a lot of other, far more worthy people to celebrate and honor, why don't we choose one of them.

    Why the need to defend Columbus?

    Same reason they try to defend their stance that America was founded by Christians and that it was a Christian nation. Or that the War of Northern Aggression as a war to free the slaves. People don't like to accept that fact that they have believed the same thing all their lives.

    If that 1 million refers to the European diseases he and his crew brought to the Western Hemisphere, yes. Even if it means all the atrocities committed by the conquistadors that followed, maybe. But to claim that Columbus, for all his faults, was personally responsible for all those deaths seems a revisionist stretching of the concept of responsibility. JMO, though.

    Yea, his men used the infants of the natives to feed their dogs. Revisionist history is what gave us Columbus day. It was started by the knights of Columbus who were looking for a Catholic hero. The accounts of what he and his men did, comes from the journals and records of the people that were there.

    How does not defending Columbus and his somewhat mythical legacy, make one an "American hating" liberal?

    You know, don't tell anyone, liberals have a plan to take over the world one internet forum at a time. Started with the A's, now have moved on to B's

    People who have no facts generally jump to name calling to 'win' an argument.
