New Years Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day (for those who forget that’s the day after Christmas Eve - I myself used to confuse the day of Christmas Eve as Christmas Day)

That's a good idea too. But I meant keep the total number of all federal government laws to 5 pages ( or 5000 words). It's not just that laws are too long but that there are too many laws .Every year there are thousands of pages of laws passed at all levels of government :This is chocking our businesses and freedom, and capitalism.

Government is the problem and needs to be limited. So the only way is to quantify it at all levels, limit every government state, federal, local to 5 pages of laws.

It is obvious democrats violated the constitution that intended to keep a limited government . but they can't violate a constitution that limits government numerically.

I have always disputed the King birthday as being hollow, empty and illegitimate.

All veterans both living and no longer with us, including all Congressional Medal Of Honor winners, get one day named “Veteran’s Day”.

Presidents, all of them, get one day.

Now, along comes a known conscientious objector who never held elective office and he gets his own day? There is absolutely no logic to that whatsoever.

My five:

Christmas Day
Memorial Day
Veteran’s Day
Thanksgiving Day
Independence Day

March 14th - S & BJ Day
September 19th - Talk Like a Pirate Day

My dad knows a guy who worked for a machine shop. He was upset that the shop was open on Good Friday. He went to the owner and asked that it be made a holiday.

The owner said he could see his way to adding one paid holiday. But that it was not fair that it be Good Friday just because one person wanted that. So he said they would put it to a vote.

Long story short...they’ve been closed the first day of Pennsylvania Deer Season ever since.

Intrinsically American holidays:
Independence Day, July 4
Thanksgiving Day, Last Thursday November
Western Civilization Holidays:
Christmas Day December 25
New Years Day January 1 (in a rational world these would be the same day)
New Holidays:
Contributor's Day, April 15
(the day we honor the civil and uniformed fallen in war, the innovators and entrepreneurs in peace, the past, present and future Uniformed Services, and the taxpayers)
Taker's Day (AKA National Day of Contempt), Late August?
(the day we show our appreciation of government drones, politicians, career criminals and chronic welfare recipients.
Just my take, actual day count varies between 5 and 7 depending on whether one includes the Friday after Thanksgiving, starts the year on Christ's birthday, etc.

I understand what you meant, and your idea and reasoning are worthy.

Usually I am sarcastic or succinct. In this case I intended to convey the message that you are trying to deal with (mostly) DemoRat politicians and lawyers while assuming they are trustworthy and genuine in their compliance and enforcement of the law.

For further reference, read my tagline.

I propose a new one: Obama capitulation day

The day when we celebrate the end of the most destructive regime in US history
