    Why is Reagan's the day before his birthday?

    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    typo. corrected.

    Additionally. Presidents Day or President's Day or even Presidents' day. Depending on what kind of liberal persuasion you happen to be. And If you REALLY want to get down to it. Washington's Birthday is on the 22 of February NOT the 21st. It has been changed actually to something like the 3rd tuesday and then renamed Presidents Day so that it sorta fogs the actual goal of honoring our first president.

    So yeah. SCREW THEM. I think i was sorta torn with trying to be tolerant. WELL BAG THAT.

    Now I REALLY hesitate telling you this. I LEFT OUT Feb 1 which is the 13th amendment signed on that day. Feb 1, which outlawed slavery for you northerners seeing as Lincoln's emancipation proclamation ONLY freed the slaves in the southern states that were rebelling. Of course, neither amendment nor proclamation ever freed the mexicans or women.
