GOOFY-LAND USA: HOLIDAYS
JANUARY: Martin Luther King Day. Supposed to honor a great
American. Really, a day for whites to feel guilty about being
white, and for blacks to wonder, "Who exactly =did= kill Dr.
King, since it wasn't James Earl Ray?"
FEBRUARY: Presidents Day. Supposed to honor two great Americans,
George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Really, a day of "this
day only" furniture sales. Plenty of commercials with George and
Abe at the fabulous furniture sale.
MARCH: St. Patrick's Day. Meant to honor Irish memories of "the
auld sod." Really, a day to get drunk.
APRIL: Easter. Meant for lofty contemplation on the concept
that God came to Earth, lived as a man, experienced first-hand
what that meant, and triumphed over evil. Really, a day to dress
up for the "Easter parade," (thereby benefiting clothing
merchants). Also, a day to give candy to the kids, courtesy of
the "Easter Bunny."
MAY: Memorial Day. Meant to be a day honoring the thousands of
average Americans who gave their lives in a cause =they=, at
least, believed in. Really, a 3-day weekend! Short vacations
and outdoor barbecues.
JUNE: Flag Day. Meant to freshen historical memory and pride in
the dream of America. Really, everyone forgets all about it.
JULY: Fourth of July. Meant to celebrate our nation's
independence from the plots, cruelties, ignorance and tyrannies
of the Old World (Europe). Really, a day of barbecues, and
parades featuring corporate floats and politicians. It will be
hard to turn this holiday into a yearly 3-day weekend; it is
saved from meddling by its very name: =Fourth= of July.
AUGUST: No major holiday! So this month has the "create your
own holiday" holiday: everyone goes on vacation.
SEPTEMBER: Labor Day. Meant to honor the American worker, the
actual =producer= of the =real= wealth, which gets robbed from
him by Monopoly Capitalists and the government. Really, a 3-day
weekend. Short vacations and outdoor barbecues.
OCTOBER: Halloween. A Satanic holiday. Candy for the kids,
costumes and parties for the adults.
NOVEMBER: Thanksgiving. Officially declared a holiday by
Abraham Lincoln, so that we might pause and give thanks for our
many blessings. Really, national gluttony day.
DECEMBER: Christmas. Meant as a day to pause and consider that
God cared enough about us to be born as a man. Really,
materialism reigns. Spellings of "Santa" and "Satan" almost
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
