Zombie Americans Don't Know What Memorial Day is For! (Video)

Damn...it's hard to beleive we have become so collectively stupid. I wouldn't expect this guy to find the people in Washington DC to be much different...even some on Captial Hill.

Great to hear at least 2 dudes who actually knew wtf we memorialize this weekend.

How pathetic, how sad

Thanks for "making us" THINK

Memorial Day is not about division. It is about reconciliation; it is about coming together to honor those who gave their all.

If I had known it was Mark Dice,

I wouldn't have clicked the link. He's a dick.

This survey proves nothing because he "leads" those he's questioning by purposely mis-framing the question. For example, "So, are you here this weekend to memorialize all the surfers who have lost their lives to the sport?" blah, blah, blah. He does this with every person he "interviews".

An honest survey would just straight out ask the question, "Why do we celebrate Memorial Day?" But he's a glory hound, so he has to cheat.

Please don't give this video any hits.

A Day set aside

A day set aside in memoriam to the "truce" that ended "The Civil War"....More of a day of reverance....
and reflection... on peace, and those who perished in wartime.

"first observed on 30 May 1868, when flowers were placed on the graves of Union and Confederate soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. The first state to officially recognize the holiday was New York in 1873...While Waterloo N.Y. was officially declared the birthplace of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson in May 1966.."

For years, the legendary Levon Helm of Woodstock fame would pay tribute to this day in a free concert as a personal salute to the troops..and that day.

Another Woodstock native-son was Tom Pacheco, and he also sang of a time not so long ago....do we remember when..."There was a time"...
