US Presidents Day 2010
On US Presidents Day some people -- get patriotic, many take advantage of having a three-day weekend which in some places is part of a week off from school called Winter Break, some shop for bargains, while others celebrate the other holidays going on at this time. Mardi Gras is a favorite as New Orleans is still riding the high from winning the Super Bowl XLIV last Sunday February 7, 2010.
The economy is foremost on people's minds these days. Never have I seen so many people knowledgeable about what's going on - drawing from the past, present, and predictive future. Thanks to the Internet, we are aware of the homelessness and hopelessness many people face, yet always knowing that in our reality ultimately everything changes.
Do you think US Presidents back in 'the day' had financial woes? It would seem so ...
Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson are noted for many things, but bankruptcy usually isn't one of them. Yet both President Lincoln and President Jefferson were declared bankrupt in their lifetimes. According to historians, Thomas Jefferson is thought to have faced personal bankruptcy several times during his adult life. As more Americans are forced to file bankruptcy today because of our recession, Presidents Day can remind us that even America's finest presidents had financial problems.
Abraham Lincoln is often considered the wisest American President. Lincoln guided the United States through a devastating Civil War by relying upon his incredible intelligence, leadership skills, and charisma. However, many years before Lincoln became one of history's finest Presidents, Lincoln was a failed shop keeper. Lincoln opened a shop in 1832, became bankrupt in 1833, and spent the next 17 years paying off debts from his failed venture.
Former U.S. Presidents Ulysses Grant and William McKinley were also bankrupt at one point.
Do you enjoy politics? conspiracy theories? believe the political systems are all doomed to failure? believe in a New World Order? the world is run by a group that remains unseen?
What is the biggest conspiracy perpetrated on humanity? Will the truth ever be known?
Each US President, before leaving office, writes a letter to his successor, that only the latter can read. What do you suppose George W. Bush wrote to Barack Obama?
