Dave!Christopher Columbus was a genocidal maniac who murdered and enslaved countless people. He was also sadistic asshole whose lust for gold resulted in massive amounts of destruction, torture, and death. As if that weren't enough, his one accomplishment... "discovering the New World"... is complete bullshit considering indigenous peoples were already established in the Americas. And, oh yeah, the Vikings were here 500 years earlier. It's possible that the Phoenicians were here even earlier.

And yet here we are, celebrating "Columbus Day" like the piece of shit is actually deserving of being celebrated.

Though there are some forward-thinking cities, like Seattle, who have replaced the holiday with "Indigenous People's Day." Why this hasn't happened nation-wide is a mystery to me, as getting rid of Columbus Day is clearly something everybody should be able to agree on.

Much like abolishing the penny...

Though we don't seem very close to getting rid of that stupid shit either.

    I’m linking a page just for your info on how we did it here in Canada.

    It really has made a difference but I did hear recently that they were thinking of introducing a 5 dollar coin. We have 1 and 2 dollar coins that already strain our wallets and I’m assuming the pockets on mens pants. The day can’t come soon enough for me where we have a society that doesn’t rely on paper money or coins. Credits, debits whatever but anything is better than germy filthy money. Ugh I recently did a stint in retail and I was constantly using wipes to disinfect my hands. People with disgusting dirty nails, sweaty yucky hands, having to take money from them. UGH

    That’s why I’m at work today !

  3. omg yes pennies must die! Same with 1c and 2c euro coins, 1 yen coins etc etc.
    We’re fairly civilised here, 1c and 2c coins disappeared years ago. NZ even got rid of 5c coins. Much more sensible :)

    I didn’t get the day off. Thank the lucky stars. Down with Columbus Day.

  5. My wife is half Native American and to say that Columbus Day doesn’t sit well with us is quite the understatement.
