Oh yeah, that's actually a great idea. I was thinking of it in the opposite way, as a day of celebration.

How come nobody did that before? I know there is controversy behind that event, but still it should have been designated a special day long ago.

Sounds like just about the same thing, what is the difference? Is this just a one time event these presidents sign?

The difference is really only in the wording from year to year.


NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim December 7, 2013, as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. I encourage all Americans to observe this solemn day of remembrance and to honor our military, past and present, with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I urge all Federal agencies and interested organizations, groups, and individuals to fly the flag of the United States at half-staff this December 7 in honor of those American patriots who died as a result of their service at Pearl Harbor.


That's from a multi-paragraph paper Obama signed in 2013 for his Pearl Harbor Remembrance proclamation.

I imagine Trump's proclamation will sound pretty similar.

What about a Midway day-to celebrate the greatest air battle of all time?

Pearl Harbor day? bah.

'OK so we need a new national holiday, any ideas?'

'How about we celebrate the time that thousands died because Japan kicked our ass in one attack?

'yeah let's go with that.'

Ah humanity-no wonder alien species don't want to contact us, but I shouldn't be one to throw stones at glass houses as I celebrate Star Wars day; May the fourth be with you.

So, it sounds like it is just a reoccurring crowd pleaser practice. Make it appear they are concerned. Nobody makes it permanent.

Yeah, he needs to support the military, since he didn't when his country called upon him more than once. Its the least he can do, and I am glad he is.

We has lost thousands of American lives in the South Pacific in a war we didn't start. We were attacked unprovoked AND no one really understood the implications of a nuclear bomb at the time.

While the idea of nuclear war is unthinkable now I think that much of the reason these weapons haven't been used since was because people saw them used then.

Not really funny to joke about either way.
