No Idea What Memorial Day Is For

Street troll Mark Dice hits the beach in San Diego to ask the question:

memorial-day-folded-flag-cemeteryNobody cares;  that generally sums it up.  All most people know is they get a day off work, and there are possibly some sales at the stores they like that weekend.

Sad stuff.  Thoughts?

Many people do not appreciate the grandparents who made their very existence possible. Perhaps if war was explained in terms of gas prices they would actually care.

Here’s why you should care: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=iUWDpAhcHEI#t=296s

I had to watch this on again just to see if people were serious… “Beaten To Death With Dice covered Microphone” that’s what the headlines would read…

Enjoy yourself, get drunk and have a BBQ like I do. I know that’s what my brothers who didn’t come back with us would have wanted for all of us.

While people shouldn’t necessarily spend memorial day mourning, more celebrating the great soldiers and the American spirit; it’s fucking disgraceful for an American to not understand and/or appreciate these holidays and that which makes this country great. Same fucking style of people that vote for Obama, those which do not understand how shit actually works.

Here’s one for you:

You can mourn the proper American way. When you and your buddies crack open a beer, open an extra and put it in the extra chair. Toast to the soul(s) that could be sitting in that chair if they hadn’t given everything. Have a drink to their memory. When you say your prayer thanking God for the scrumptous bbq you have, say another thanking him for the people who made that sacrafice.

Mourn through celebrating the people who gave it up.

If this isnt a pefect example of societal decay, I don think ive seen one. Im always entertained at Mark Dice’s videos for thoroughly trolling the most oblivious and un-informed people they could find, the average person on the street of california it seems ha.

Is it the education systems job to teach us about a history and holidays like this, or the responsibility of GOOD parents to teach their children WHY they have the freedoms they do?

It looks like it’s filmed on the Oceanside pier. If it is, that would make this that much worse considering the fact that a large number of the Marines from Camp Pendleton frequent that area.

The thing that’s kind of hard with these things is we have no idea if this is a small subset of the people he interviewed or 100%. In the end if you don’t know what Memorial day is for you’re a douche. Just like the rest of the major Holiday’s Christmas and Easter (Not being religious is not an excuse), President’s Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, and Thanksgiving.

Surprised people don’t know…not in the least.

How about…if you don’t know what they are you shouldn’t be able to vote. Just a simple test.

I’m not sure Mark Dice cares about Memorial Day either after watching this video of his…

I made it about 4 minutes in before I gave up in disgust that Memorial Day is for lost surfers. WTF?

And what is really scary is that Jay Leno gave up Jaywalking because the ignorance of the public disgusted him.

Hallmark holiday. America’s sense of entitlement is nauseating.
More holidays than normal days. Not everyone is special.
You are not special.
