Happy Columbus Day to those of you who are Proud to be a US Citizen.

To those of you thin-skinned snowflakes with "SJW" on your resume, kiss our asses.

EDIT: My wife just tactfully pointed out that the "SJW" crowd probably don't have a resume and still live off their parents, so... regardless, the people who feel the need to re-write history because it offends them or someone else, those people can still kiss my ass.

I’m somewheres around 25-28% Cherokee and I think this is dumb. Proud American. Oh and you’d be surprised at how many natives that live on the res think it’s dumb too.

You wouldn't say its dumb if you had ever been to the Columbus Day Regatta at Elliot Key in Biscayne Bay. It's a party to end all parties.

I’m not getting what your getting at? Do I think it’s dumb to take or rename Columbus Day? Of course I do. It’s part of our history. I bet the regatta would be cool to see. I hear there are thousands of boats out there. Would I participate, no way too many people for me. If they wanna do it, cool boat it up. Like previous stated, if you want a new holiday then fine but don’t take away one because I a tiny amount of large mouthed people. As far I me being part native, I understand how the world works. Peoples conquer people and take land. Victor goes the spoils. People scream about taking away indigenous peoples land, well those that had it at the time once fought and took it from someone else. Tribes were killing each other and taking each others land(space) long before Columbus got here. So I don’t get it. They say it belongs to indigenous people well which ones? The last owners, or the ones before that or before that? So as to your post ????? I don’t get what you were saying. Am I not native enough? Or am I too native? I don’t get it.

I'm more than half Italian, born and raised in Brooklyn, my birthday is the 13th (today). Growing up I had several times where the holiday fell on my birthday so had the day off. YES, I enjoy Columbus day. Fuck this "indigenous people day shit!!!!

I took a walk along the back fence line today, I stepped behind a large pine tree and took a piss. I’d bet good money that someone is offended that I pissed on a pine tree. If you are not offending someone then you aren’t doing it right.

Topped off the fuel this evening. Total stopped at $14.87, and I couldn't possibly let that ride, so I bumped it up 5 more cents. Receipt wouldn't print, so I went inside and asked the old fella working behind the counter for the receipt for pump 7.

He said, "Sure! 1492?"
I said, "Yessir."
And without skipping a beat, he said "Columbus sailed the ocean blue! You can't say those numbers without finishing it off!"

We both laughed.

America. :)

Sorry but I thought you were implying that celebrating Columbus Day was dumb. The truth is, it wouldn't matter what it's called. It's just a weekend where everyone can let their hair down and enjoy the biggest T&A show you'll ever see in your life. It would also most likely violate forum rules if I described what else you might witness at this floating, drunken orgy.

No worries friend, I have thick skin anyways. And I agree wouldn’t want to be apart of something like that if what you say is true, that’s definitely not what I would enjoy.
