It is Presidents Day. Across the country schoolchildren (except the poor children that are making up snow-days), bankers, and postal workers are enjoying a nice day at home.  For the rest of the country, it is just another workday.  Higher education, fast food, restaurant equipment sales, material handling sales, MLB Spring Training, and all those other occupations that keep the nation running are honoring our dead presidents with hard work.  I thought about doing a short blurb about all the presidents today, but there have been a lot of them, and I don’t think I could hold your interest for that long. So, today I am just going to give you some great quotes from five of our manliest presidents.

The Top 5 Manliest Presidents of the United States
