Happy George Washington's Birthday!

For those of you that don't know, the official Federal holiday today is George Washington's Birthday, as it should be. The official holiday is not president's day. Let's give President Washington the honor and respect that he earned and deserves. I realize that media and pop culture switched it at some point to make it about shopping and gigantic sales, but officially it is still George Washington's Birthday and it would be nice to honor the great man and Father of our country the way the holiday was intended instead of insulting his legacy by calling it president's day. It's a disservice to the history of our country and to our children who are already the victim's of revisionist history in so many ways. I hope all of you will take the lead and refer to the actual Federal holiday as intended, George Washington's Birthday.
