    Great to see our County celebrating the Nations first Democrat . . . When he left Europe he didn't know where he was going, when he got here he didn't know where he was, when he got back he didn't know where he'd been and he did it all on the government's money. The celebrated tradition continues to this day.

    "When Columbus and his sailors came ashore [at the Bahamas], carrying swords, speaking oddly, the Arawaks ran to greet them, brought them food, water, gifts. He later wrote of this in his log: . . . They would make fine servants.... With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want." - HERE
