If garbage collection is cancelled how will obama supporters hug their garbage man ? As the negative obama ad shows Romney's garbageman sad because Romney has never hugged him.

why is public works closed? for what reason? isn't there something that they could be doing instead of sitting home collecting a full days pay? so they get paid for their day today and they'll get paid for Sat. This isn't a working mans holiday.

While Iam of Italian heritage, I do not think anyone should be off for Columbus day..he was horrible to the Indians ( native americans ) that were here ...the reason that this became a Natl. holiday was to get the Italian votes during an election, As a country, personally I think 9/11 should be a day of observance, its the day the World changed, & affected everyone, though the saddest day we all went threw, its also a time to reflect on how we all came together, for a short time we were United, & year after year.... its not any easier to funtion that day, for most of use we spend a good have of it remembering where were, still in shock & can barely talk about it, & IF we can, not able to do without tears & emotion...I think its a day we all need to STOP, pray, reflect , have memorials Thank all those that ran in & never came out... & maybe all remember how we all came together ..

1955 south? I have to ask, if we dont celebrate Columbus Day for your listed reason then why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? The English settlers killed and enslaved Indians also. Or how about Washingtons Birthday (made to honor our founding father, who grew marijuana (Washington today would go to jail for doing so). He also owned African slaves,yet we honor him. Columbus brought European settlers to America along with a slew of other things that were good. My personal favorite is he brought the tomato to Europe. Yes thats right tomatoes are from North America. Imagine Italians without tomatoes. For me its hard to do. But before Columbus they didnt exist in Europe. So next time you take a bite of that pizza or have some pasta with any kind of tomato sauce or gravy think of Columbus.

correct I think Prez day off is just another day for teachers & Grmt. to have have a day off. Thanksgiving while there were a lot of negative behavior, they also came together , Marijuana was used for medical reasons then ( as was cocaine) NOT only did he bring tomatoes he also brought tobacco, which seems to be a worse habit/tabow now than marijuana ... personally I can take or leave having tomatoes.. While I do have them Not something I miss or couldn't live without. My point was Presidents day, Columbus day are just days for sales & Gvmt to close down( most people DO work on these day & have to figure out where they're young kids are going while they are at work) 9/11 is a much more significant day in history that affected Everyone, & maybe for you its just another day, but for most find it extremely difficult to work that day
