National Loyalty Day....

Apparently May 1st is now National Loyalty Day, by proclamation of the President of the United States.

The purpose of Loyalty Day is to pay honor to the men and women who serve and who have served in the armed forces and have sacrificed to keep this country safe. I think the idea is a good one, but he could have picked a better name, especially given the bad press about having to sign loyalty oaths to have had attended his presidential campaign appearances. Not to mention the screened and scripted "Town Hall" meetings to push his SS agenda.

Update 04/03/05
Note: I have just learned that in 1958 the act was passed by Congress and President Eisenhower signed it into law. Bush just felt the need to reiterate this. He does loves the loyalty thing.
