It's About "F-Ing" TIME !
« on: April 07, 2019, 11:47:30 AM »



New Mexico officially replaced Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day


On Tuesday, New Mexico governor Michelle Lujan Grisham signed legislation abolishing Columbus Day as a national holiday. Instead, the state will celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which honors the heritage of Native Americans. It is the fifth state to do so, joining Minnesota, Alaska, Vermont, and South Dakota.

Although Christopher Columbus is commonly credited with “discovering” America, Icelandic explorer Leif Ericsson landed in the country five centuries prior. Rather than discover, Columbus jumpstarted the permanent European colonization of the Americas; a significant event, but controversy has arisen over its celebration. According to historians, Columbus and his men brutally enslaved Native Americans, subjected them to acts to extreme violence and introduced them to deadly new diseases that wiped out populations.

I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

Five hundred years after the genocide, and the government makes October 14th "Indigenous People's Day". Pardon me while I snicker at the politics that have brought us so far, so fast. Pure silliness. Columbus Day was silly, so is Indigenous People's Day.

Christmas is silly, Thanksgiving is silly, Memorial Day is silly...all holidays are silly.  They're just an excuse to get off from work or school.
