Who? The Natives or the Italians ?
Whoever wants it.
Why not just have checkbox day.
Then anyone can celebrate whatever they think makes them part of whatever group they like.
Or I could be nice about it and call it heritage day.
Who owns the casinos now?
There's your answer.
Dude. Don't be that guy. Indian casinos don't even COLLECTIVELY equal Vegas' total take .... before Covid or after. It isn't close. You know that.
Also ... Indian casinos make native populations poorer overall. A fragment of the tribal leaders get rich, while everyone else slides deeper into poverty, alcoholism, suicide, and crime.
I get your intended point ... but Columbus Day doesn't mean shit to most native people. They'd endure if it their men weren't living out of a bottle of booze almost 75% of the time. I'll put you in touch with the head man at the Pine Ridge Reservation in SD. Those guys are woke, sure. But their people would be glad to see casinos go away quicker than Columbus' irrelevant day off in October.
So you agree is what you are trying to tell me lol
Maybe. I don't know. Perhaps.
Truth is, Rube, as one of the few here that reads every word you post, and I usually dig it .... sometimes ... how do I say this?
I don't know what in the blue fuck you're talking about.
I thought we were talking about who has the financial and political lobby strong enough to influence some group of crats or cons to get them a holiday.
I think that's backwards.
Those holidays are for buying votes, not buying politicians.
Next gone is St. Patrick's Day...
Sure. Why not. How about that racist MLK, too? He said all lives matter. Cancel his Uncle Tim ass.
I guess Christmas is safe ? Too much money made behind it...but considering the atheist/ agnostic group growing by leaps and bounds, it would seem, at least, a distant target.
I'm just going off the godfather.
The politicians want italian votes and the italians want political cover.
If a politician is buying votes it's because someone opened up that market for him.
You don't just get to buy whatever you want.
There has to be a deal made first.
In a circle jerk no pennies trickle down.
Nah. The beverage industry is too invested in that one.
Yeah, and nothing like picking up a drunken Irish chick outside a Blarney Stone either about 2:00 AM on March 17th.
Slurring her words and yelling "Erin Go Bragh", spilling her beer all over herself...and man, those freckles...

completely accurate BTW
Where would the world be without the Irish ?
That's funny, but I really meant every word...
Separate names with a comma.
