This is another thing that irks me. Why did they eliminate Lincoln and Washington's days? These were extraordinary men who deserve special recognition. To lump them in with all the presidents in one day is a disgrace!
lost in a dark abyss mired in an unceasing melancholy my soul aches a cold darkness engulfs me it chills me to the bone waves of dread wash over me i cry out in despair my mind is numb yet at my worst He is still present Christ's love reaches me even in my lowly wretched state how amazing and wonderful thank you Lord! i will keep running the race (c) By Zachary Uram, 2015
In the Garden, man did fall For eating the forbidden fruit Death and sin consumed us all We once walked with God In the garden of Eden To survive we'd have to work the clod This Messiah was foretold The prophets recorded In the days of old He would save the human race By reconciling man with the I AM Jesus would die in our place Truly God and truly man The hypostatic union He carried out the Father's plan He was born in a humble stable With sheep and donkey This was no fable He taught the 12 Apostles truth And healed and spoke with power and authority His reputation spread in Judea forsooth The Pharisees devised a wicked plan He rebuked them and challenged their hypocrisy They schemed against the Son of Man He was judged by Pilate of Rome And sentenced to death As recorded in many a tome On Good Friday He hung on the cross The God-Man would face God's wrath Such an incalculable loss At 3 pm He spoke His last "It is finished."

This movie is a disaster! The acting is so bad I often laughed out loud at the delivery. I could write better dialogue when I was in 9th grade! The plot is very implausible and the premise is ridiculous. One would have to be wholly ignorant of science to not be incredulous. First of all the glacier would not be speeding across the ocean no matter how big it was. If such a gigantic glacier shelf broke off (1,000 miles wide) it would have triggered a massive tsunami. The shortest over-water distance between Europe and America is 1,630 miles so if glacier will reach the eastern US coast in 19 hours it is traveling at 86mph! This is just not possible. The Indian scientist is a complete moron, he sees explosions less than a mile away and waits until the last possible minute to take off in the helicopter. Then the fool travels along the fault line! All he has to do was fly at a 90 degree angle to the fault line and he would have been safe. Or he could have just flown higher, the helicop
Some might argue for Thomas Jefferson, FDR, Teddy Roosevelt, Andrew Jackson, etc etc etc. How many holidays do we want to give government employees and post office workers?ReplyDelete
I think these two are the greatest presidents. And lawmakers did too. You make a point, we don't want to have too many federal holidays.ReplyDelete
