Why is Delaware Day no big deal?   Because it celebrates a bunch of colonials sitting in the Golden Fleece in Dover,  having a brief discussion, then voting for ratification, then hurrying home….   The timing of their decision would eventually lead 216 years later to Delaware having the first quarter minted in its honor…  That was about it…

So why is Pearl Harbor a big deal?  We got beat… Hey lets go down to the bar and celebrate that time Biff beat us up real bad as kids… 

No, we celebrate Pearl Harbor Day because on that day, Republicans everywhere (except for the DuPont family) stopped being Republicans.  The entire nation became Democrats, solidly behind FDR, committed to their government for its fulfilling of one task no matter what the cost…. 

Great things were accomplished because of Pearl Harbor…  That is why we celebrate it… It proved the Republican philosophy that we should leave the world alone and just support our billionaires, to be wrong, and it stayed wrong for the next 53 years later…  That time frame turned out to be America’s greatest, ever, btw…   So it is worth that we celebrate Pearl Harbor Day….  It caused the disappearance of the Republican Party…. 

Fingers crossed that perhaps we will celebrate November 4, 2014 the same way?…..  for the same thing?  For getting rid of all influence by the Republican Party?…. 

(Note, to reader:  I started this post in jest, but now it is scaring me exactly how closely similar the Republican Party was leading up to Pearl Harbor, as it is today..)
