President’s Day

Normally, I don’t write about holidays, unless I have the day off, but I will make an exception. This post will be about my favorite President. (Maybe you will feel the same way I do!)

I know what many of you must be thinking; as a minority, living in America, my favorite President has to be Mr. 44, Barack Obama. You are wrong. It’s great that Barack became President of these United States of America, but he is not my favorite, although he is high on the list.

“Oh, of course! This is pretty easy; your favorite President is sweet sixteen, Abraham Lincoln, Mr. Emancipation himself.” NO! I am a big fan of Lincoln, but he’s not my favorite. I will definitely put him in the top five.

“I’m not sure who your favorite is, but I know it’s not number 43, George W. Bush.”  You’re right; Bush isn’t my favorite, but he also cracks the top five. W is one of my favorites. I don’t really judge presidents by their politics, I just like the ones who make me laugh.

Two other honorable mentions are Number 42, Bill Clinton and number 35 John F. Kennedy. Big Willy and JFK abused their power and got some White House strange. I’m against men cheating on their wives, but if you’re going to be President and run the most powerful country in the world; you’re probably entitled to an intern or two. If you can get a playmate, which I am almost certain is extremely easy for any Head of State, go right ahead and enjoy yourself. (Don’t get married if you plan on cheating; it’s a dumbass move. If you don’t believe me, ask Mr. Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers. THAT GUY IS A CERTIFIED IDIOT!)

Now to the moment of truth! My favorite President is number 21, Chester A. Arthur. Not only is he twenty-one, which is the age every young person aspires to be, but I like Chester for a completely different reason. I will never forget that Chester A Arthur is the twenty first President. It all has to do with one of my favorite movies of all time, DIE HARD WITH A VENGEANCE!

Samuel L. Jackson, I’m sure in between some swears, pointed out that the bomb was at Chester A Arthur middle school in New York City because there were forty two Presidents and he was twenty one which is half. Chester A Arthur is my favorite President because of a movie. Go figure!

      ***If you take all of the numbers provided above, you’ll probably win the Big Game. Don’t forget to send a couple dollars my way! (For the bonus number, use the number that coincides with your favorite President!)***

Enjoy the day if you have it off; I’ll be working!

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.
