Presidents’ Day: Saluting the Original American Badass, George Washington!

Today, as the nation begrudgingly celebrates “Presidents’ Day,” a time when most people just want a day off work and stores try to hawk cheap imports, let’s take a moment to remember the original American badass, George Washington. Before this holiday was watered down to honor all presidents, it solely commemorated the leadership and courage of our first president, a true legend in his own right.

Sure, most folks remember Washington as the stoic figure in the powdered wig who couldn’t tell a lie about chopping down a cherry tree. But there’s so much more to this man than meets the eye. Standing tall at 6 feet 3 inches in a time when most folks were half a foot shorter, Washington was not just physically imposing but also a force to be reckoned with in any setting.

From his days as a teenage surveyor trekking through the untamed Shenandoah Valley to his daring mission to confront the French at Fort Le Boeuf, Washington lived a life on the edge of danger and excitement. Despite facing peril, like being attacked by hostile Indians and nearly freezing to death on a snowy river island, Washington’s resolve never wavered. Even in his forties, he outshined younger men in physical competitions, proving that age was just a number to this true American hero.

But what sets Washington apart as a certified badass is his run-in with the law. When a local man tried to slap him with a warrant for trespassing and causing damages, Washington didn’t back down. On three separate occasions, sheriffs attempted to apprehend him, but Washington was always one step ahead. In one memorable encounter, he even used a sword or pistol to fend off a deputy sheriff trying to arrest him, showing that no one could mess with the man who would later become the father of our country.

In a world where politicians bend over backward to please everyone, we need to remember the sheer grit and determination of a leader like George Washington. Only he could boast of singlehandedly triggering a world war, thwarting a potential coup, and staring down the law with a weapon in hand. So, next time you think of Presidents’ Day, don’t forget to raise a glass to the original American badass who set the standard for courage and bravery in the face of adversity.
