NATIONAL DAY OF PATRIOTIC DEVOTION9570
-------
BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
A PROCLAMATION
A new national pride stirs the American soul and inspires
the American heart. We are one people, united by a common
destiny and a shared purpose.
Freedom is the birthright of all Americans, and to preserve
that freedom we must maintain faith in our sacred values and
heritage.
Our Constitution is written on parchment, but it lives in
the hearts of the American people. There is no freedom where the
people do not believe in it; no law where the people do not
follow it; and no peace where the people do not pray for it.
There are no greater people than the American citizenry,
and as long as we believe in ourselves, and our country, there
is nothing we cannot accomplish.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United
States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by
the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby
proclaim January 20, 2017, as National Day of Patriotic
Devotion, in order to strengthen our bonds to each other and to
our country -- and to renew the duties of Government to the
people.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand thistwentieth day of January, in the year of our Lord two thousandseventeen, and of the Independence of the United States ofAmerica the two hundred and forty-first.

In 2009, President Obama declared the day of his inauguration a "Day of Renewal and Reconciliation."

Bush declared his inauguration a "National Day of Prayer and Thanksgiving." (https://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/releases/2001/01/20010123-3.html)

When your "day concept" gets blown away by what W came up with, you have some issues.

Is this man really that clueless? "I said it, so it's true" seems to shine right through it...

Will I get a "Loyalty Card"?

This isn't the USA.

No surprise he chose 1776 instead of 1789. It's like he forgot the oath he swore that very day.

His writing style is a bit labored - it lacks a beginning, middle or end. And each sentence lacks a coherent thought. Other than that it is very impressive.

Most of the sentences have more then four words. Also, commas and semi-colons are correctly used. Certainly above his grammatical abilities.

He became President at noon. Then there were parades and stuff, so he didn't sign the thing till about 1600. Doesn't that make it "The National Afternoon and Evening of Patriotic Devotion"?

I'll et Bannon wrote the damn thing. Its got those Goebbelsesque touches.

... and it wasn't actually made official until 4 days later.

Glad we dodged that one.

National Upsidedown Flag Day

National Upsidedown Flag Day

People don't get this, in general. On the news last night was a story of a veteran with his viral selfie decrying the act of protesting by burning the flag as unpatriotic and insulting to service members and vets. Completely missing the point of the flag as a symbol, while in the background imagery for the 'news' story, they also had a shot of a flag mounted upside down, as if that were just some mindless commie-fag, unpatriotic jerk thing, like burning one.

It is a disservice to not mention to the general public that flying the flag upside down is a universal distress signal, and that the community that recognizes that, also recognizes that the proper response is to render aid.
