Mandeville, LA - Exclusive Video and Audio - Happy Presidents Day, or Washington's Birthday as it used to be known and celebrated on it's correct date of February 22nd, before the Uniform Monday Holiday Act in 1968 which moved some holidays to Mondays for Federal employees but has no authority over states and private citizens. And don't forget to go out and do what Washington would've wanted you to do on his birthday: take 50% off of a new mattress or furniture set.

"Whatever capital you divert to the support of a shiftless and good-for-nothing person is so much diverted from some other employment, and that means from somebody else. I would spend any conceivable amount of zeal and eloquence if I possessed it to try to make people grasp this idea. Capital is force. If it goes one way it cannot go another. If you give a loaf to a pauper you cannot give the same loaf to a laborer. Now this other man who would have got it but for the charitable sentiment which bestowed it on a worthless member of society is the Forgotten Man." - William Graham Sumner, The Forgotten Man
