People: You Wouldn't Like Him When He's Angry...
It's “Presidents’ Day” here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. and Triple P would like to take this opportunity to celebrate our favorite Leader of the Free World: Andrew Jackson. I’m not particularly fond of his chattel owning or Native American slaughtering, but I will always admire the man who had the good sense to see past the “hellish banditti” label and call up some of my ancestors to defend New Orleans and the young U.S. Plus you have to admire a leader who gets stuff done without adding to ignoble pursuits like the national debt. Andrew Jackson was, after all, our last “debt free” president.
So, on that note and just for fun, allow me to redirect you to Daniel O’Brien’s Friday offering over at the always hilarious – and frequently informative – Cracked.com. Here is “How to Fight Andrew Jackson: The Deadliest President Ever”. Spoiler alert: you will get your butt kicked.
