What’s The Deal With Presidents’ Day?

Presidents’ Day is celebrated as a federal holiday on the third Monday in February. It is usually commemorated in the United States by the closure of government offices, no school, and plenty of mattress sales. However, if you ask people what the holiday is about, you might be surprised by some of the answers. For instance, which President is being remembered? By the name, you might think it is all Presidents of the United States. The apostrophe at the end of the word would indicate that its meaning is plural – as in more than one President. However, some people spell it President’s Day, meaning one President. It’s all very confusing. Here are the answers to some perplexing questions on this national holiday.

What If…America Had Lost The War…?

As wars go, America has been pretty lucky.  Most of the early wars we fought, we won, either because of fortuitous turn of events, help from an outside force, or sheer tenacity.  The question rises, however, is ‘What if America lost these wars?’  The enemies of the United States certainly had plans for their spoils, but what would they have been?  Here is a list of the plans that were laid out by America’s enemies should they have been victorious.

Best U.S. Presidents

Here are the choices for the best five United States presidents.  Most people have a pre-conceived notion that Abraham Lincoln should be right on top.  I don’t think so.  The man was hated as a president in his time.  Note: he was assassinated.  He did a lot of unpopular things and all of them can’t be blamed directly on his presidency, but he certainly wasn’t the person we remember.  Similarly, FDR is famous for being the person that brought us out of the Great Depression and led us in WW2.  He served 4 terms as a US President, but I argue that he really didn’t do anything that Herbert Hoover hadn’t already planned to do, didn’t really stop the unemployment rate, and if WW2 hadn’t have happened, he wouldn’t have got us out of the Depression. 

Below are my best five.  See if you agree! If you don’t, tell me about it.
