Nice try. I used to like being whipped - as you know - but I've grown tired of that kind of foreplay.

1. President Trump

2. No current holiday, just wait until the new one for President Obama is implemented, and then change it.

Or...take the same day - 1/2 for Obama and 1/2 for Trump.
Maybe even alternate each minute of that day back & forth..lol

I like your "Or" option best. Obama would represent the working hours when stuff gets done. The 12 hr night shift can be the Trump half... time for tweeting, watching Hannity, binge eating cheeseburgers... (hehe)

Hey..it would be a holiday.

Obama would be at Martha's Vineyard with the media celebrating his golf game.

Trump would be at Mara Lago with the media vilifying his golf game.

Or Kim's North Korea, officially known as "Democratic People's Republic of Korea"?

It's anything but what the official name touts.

(Did you leave out the "ic" on Democratic intentionally?)

The official name makes no sense IMO -

It's not "Democratic"
It's not the "People's"
It's not a "Republic"

Or, is it?

About the missing "ic" - good guess (biggrin)

NK can call itself anything it wants. It doesn't necessarily make it so. Any nation can for that matter.

Sure a nation can.

No reason for NK to officially name itself the "Totalitarian Inhumane Dictatorship of Korea".

The official name as it is sounds much more appealing.

"Still be"?

Just because no states have yet seceded doesn't mean they are "united"...except for those emotional "kumbaya" moments, (and then nobody means it any longer after the emotion wears off).

And the fact that the U.S. legislative body which makes up representatives from each state still take their scheduled vacations together after a few months in DC of posing as representatives of those "united" states.

Christmas is now "The Holidays"...and Easter (Easter eggs are now called "spring spheres") doesn't contain Christ's name. Yeah, MLK was OK, for a riot agitator.

Christmas is still Christmas, no matter what the PC douchebags try to tell you. Easter doesn't need his name; it's all about his sacrifice. MLK preached peace; his followers were really bad listeners.

Got it. Yeah, I was referring more to the national chain department store and Mall mindset and their TV commercials. For 10 years, you couldn't see "Merry Christmas" anywhere in any national department store. Glad the public rebelled.
It will always be Merry Christmas out of my mouth too.

Merry christmas has always been in the mouths of people here. It never went anywhere. Happy holidays has also always been a vocal greeting or parting words.
