Even now, plans under way for Obama national holiday
WND ^ | November 09, 2008 | Drew Zahn

Posted on 11/09/2008 10:12:32 PM PST by RobinMasters

A civil rights organization in Kansas has launched a campaign to designate Nov. 4 as a national holiday, commemorating the election of Barack Obama as president.

"The reason why I want to have this holiday is because it marks the day America grew up," said Sonny Scroggins, founder and president of Bias Busters of Kansas, the organization pushing for the holiday.

Scroggins told WND that America has for too long focused on what our ancestors did during legalized slavery, but the election of Obama shows that we no longer allow race and gender to be the deciding factors in guiding our nation, but integrity and honor.

Why don’t we wait until events unfold a little, a more appropriate date may yet present itself...like his birthday perhaps, or the anniversary of his signing of a major piece of legislation...or perhaps something else...

I have a better idea. I’d like to see national election day every 4 years declared a national holiday .... that way people won’t have to try to vote in the few hours before and after work. (Yes, I know employers are supposed to allow you time to vote, but many discourage taking time off to vote).

I think a lot more people would vote plus it would send a message that this in an IMPORTANT event.

It's liberals who can't move past the slavery years. They dwell there because they believe they need to in order to keep african americans "riled" up so they will continue to vote for the democrats. So if liberals finally move into the present what are they going to do to convince african americans they are oppressed?

Good idea. Most libs do not work anyway and have an advantage. The ones that do would probably take the opportunity to get wasted the night before and sleep the next day. Brilliant!

“Two Words...HELL NO!”

Right; and the election was almost a week ago, and I have not yet received my mortgage pay off check from Barrack!!!

I am opposed to the holiday until I get the check and it clears. I mean, what gives? How long does it take to print and send a lousy check?

Come on Barry, get on the stick!!

“we no longer allow race and gender to be the deciding factors in guiding our nation”

97% of blacks voted for him simply because he is black. That's racist. The mostly male MSM treated HRC & Saracuda like red-headed step children simply because they are women. That is sexist.

“but integrity and honor”

Millions of fraudulent votes, suppression of Republican mail-in ballots, plus the fraud and dirty tricks in the Democrat caucuses. I guess thats the Democrat version of integrity and honor.

How about holidays celebrating toe nail fungus and diarrhea?

Or perhaps Che and Papa Joe. (Unfortunately, they would actually like to have those two - but never Uncle Adolf, even though the Dems are much more Fascist than Marxist).

Planning under way for Obama holiday
The Capital-Journal
Published Sunday, November 09, 2008
Plans are being made to promote a national holiday for Barack Obama, who will become the nation’s 44th president when he takes the oath of office Jan. 20.

“Yes We Can” planning rallies will be at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. every Tuesday at the downtown McDonald’s restaurant, 1100 Kansas Ave., until Jan. 13. The goals are to secure a national holiday in Obama’s honor, to organize celebrations around his inauguration and to celebrate the 200th birthday of President Abraham Lincoln, who was born on Feb. 12 1809.

At 7:30 a.m. on Inauguration Day, Obama Cake will be served at the downtown McDonald’s, and a celebration is scheduled for 8 p.m. to midnight Jan. 20 at the Ramada Hotel and Convention Center, 420 S.E. 6th.

Sounds like a bunch of moonbats who get together once a week at a McDonalds. Zero percent chance they get this thing to happen.

America has for too long focused on what our ancestors did during legalized slavery

There were thousands of blacks who were slave-owners. There were thousands of whites who owned no slaves. There were thousands of whites who were indentured. I'm so tired of hearing about what *our* ancestors did 150 years ago.

This election was stolen by a Muslim/Marxist who had the power of millions of dollars worth of illegal campaign funds from America’s enemies overseas, the documented voted fraud of ACORN, the unrelenting campaigning for him by the leftist MSM and the most powerful black radical racists, Muslim terrorists and America haters on the globe behind him.

He won’t bask in the glory of his victory in peace. We intend to go after him:
