We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
The Spanish (Latino?) immigrants to the New World were just looking for the opportunity for a better life with free trade and open borders. (In NYC, Columbus Day is a celebration of Italian immigrants because Chris of course was Italiano. After all, without Columbus, there would be no tomatoes or peppers in Southern Italian cooking.)
Yeah, but we need to find someone other than Columbus, who was evil not only by modern PC lights, but by the standards of his own day. We named America after someone who was just sorta standing around during the key explorations; we can find someone at least as likely to take Chris's place.

When Hillary Clinton during the debate, said Supreme Court Justices must have a world view, you can expect to see, many
U.S. holidays renamed under her presidency. Fourth of July
will be removed from the calendar so it does not offend native Americans.
The Hillary Regime will also have to do something about Thanksgiving, since it is a national day of prayer proclaimed by the president. Although Obama has increasingly watered down the proclamations to make them more and more secular. (I.e., instead of giving thanks to the Almighty, we now give thanks for our police, firefighters, first responders, etc.)
