How Are You Going To Celebrate Mothers' Day?

The President has issued a proclamation to help us Patriots understand what is best for Mothers everywhere. Have a gander at what he thinks about Mothers of the GIs he has put into harms way:
On this special day, we remember the many mothers whose sons and daughters serve in harm's way. The determination and courage of these women demonstrate the spirit of our Nation, and America will always be grateful for their unfailing devotion. We also recognize the dedication of the many mothers who serve in America's Armed Forces. These brave women protect the safety and security of our Nation and help ensure a peaceful future for our children...

...NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim May 14, 2006, as Mother's Day. I encourage all Americans to show their gratitude and love to mothers for making a difference in the lives of their children and communities. I call upon citizens to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities...
Where's the remorse for those mothers with sons and daughters lost or maimed in the name of "spreading freedom?" Now, wouldn't it be better for him to issue a proclamation to bring our Nation's Mothers,sons and daughters home from Iraq? I think that would be a more fitting tribute than encouraging us to celebrate in some way.

By the way, what are you going to do to celebrate mothers everywhere?

Hmmm... how am I going to celebrate Mother's Day? Better to ask, how are you going to be feted?
Oh, hell, it's just a frickin' commercial holiday lately. I did get my honored aged mother some excellent choclates and a card, but how am I supposed to know if my menfolk will remember and fete me?
I'm in a very bad mood.
