No Politics Day

No Politics Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on February 1

Isn't it about time somebody said .... "Give it a rest!!"

After all the angst, bitterness, and negativity of recent elections, and the protests over installation of newly elected officials at just about all levels, normal Americans have had it with both politicians, and the political rancor. Isn't it time to take a break from politics? I think one thing we all can agree upon, is that a break from politics would be refreshing, if only for a day. 

Today is No Politics Day. That means no political activities and no political statements of any kind whatsoever.... no facebook or twitter posts, no discussions or debates, and no sharing or spreading political articles, comics, or other materials. And, certainly, no fake news today. The news media should also participate in this special day. We have little faith that the media will comply, as all the negativity sells TV, radio and print ads. 

It was quickly decided not to make this a national day, as that would require an act of congress or a presidential proclamation. There is no way or politicians would do this, without a whole lot of political lobbying. And, could you imagine any politician voting for no politics, even if only for a day.

So, let's all celebrate this refreshing and relaxing day. There will be plenty of time for politics tomorrow.

Deep Thought for Today: It is rather ironic to realize that a successful No Politics Day would be a political victory!

Todays Quote: The political environment has become so toxic, we offer three very appropriate non-political quotes:

  •  "A healthy democracy requires a decent society; it requires that we are honorable, generous, tolerant and respectable." - - Charles Pickering
  • "If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in freedom at all." - - Noam Chomsky
  • "If voting changed anything, they'd make it illegal." - - Emma Goldman

History and Origin of No Politics Day:

Many Americans from both sides of the aisle, are disgusted and fed up with the ugliness of politics as of late. We want a break from all the arguing, bickering, nastiness, and negativity.  We need a break from it. It is for this reason, that No Politics Day was conceived  

This special day was established in 2017 by Bob Matthews, of Rochester, NY.
