May Day, calling Mr Orwell, May Day May Day
May 1, Labour Day, May Day
in the US not so very popular lately
they prefer Capitalist Overlord Day. or, wait for it
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2006, as Loyalty Day. I call upon all the people of the United States to join in support of this national observance, and to display the flag of the United States on Loyalty Day.
My Hand To God, I swear I couldn't make this up.
but wait, there's more
it's also Law Day, where Americans celebrate the time-honoured separation of powers as laid out by the Constitution:
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, in accordance with Public Law 87-20, as amended, do hereby proclaim May 1, 2006, as Law Day, U.S.A. I call upon all the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate ceremonies and activities. I also call upon Government officials to display the flag of the United States in support of this national observance.
The fact that US Immigrants are planning a country-wide work boycott and rally I'm sure has nothing to do with these noble proclamations.
