U.S. Rep. Hanabusa wants Memorial Day date changed

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 10:11 a.m. HST, May 31, 2013

U.S. Rep. Colleen Hanabusa wants to move the date of Memorial Day to encourage more Americans to focus on honoring military service members.

The congresswoman from Hawaii planned to introduce a bill Thursday changing Memorial Day from the last Monday of the month to May 30th.

Hanabusa says “many Americans have begun to celebrate the long weekend as the beginning of summer rather than honoring those who died courageously in battle.”

The weekend is known for shopping and leisure activities as well as memorial services.

Hanabusa says the holiday was originally celebrated on May 30th until Congress changed the date in 1968.

She says she is carrying on the effort of the late Sen. Daniel Inouye from Hawaii, who advocated a date change during his career.

From Colleen, I have heard: Senator Inouye wanted ME appointed. And we should change the date of Memorial Day. Oh, and Senator Inouye wanted that, too!

This election will be easier for me than I had originally thought.

Eventually May 30 will fall on a Monday or Friday so there will still be 3 day weekends. Those that want to conduct memorial services can still do it whether it is the last Monday of May or May 30th. I don't think changing the date is going to make a difference to the average person in the street, only those who do something special.

Isn't that her point - that more people should be doing something special, so set aside a special date so it doesn't get blurred. Yeah, it'll make 3 day weekends at times, but for the most part it won't.

If the 30th lands on a Sat or Sun, the "day-off" will be moved to either Fri or Mon...so technically, there will be more 3 day weekends than not. I just find it interesting that a Democrat is trying to change policy with the intent to instill certain "values" on the public...wonder if the ACLU will file a lawsuit. This being said, we all owe our service men and women a tremendous amount of gratitude and should honor them regardless of the day.

The hormonal theory of sexuality holds that, just as exposure to certain hormones plays a role in fetal sex differentiation, such exposure also influences the sexual orientation that emerges later in the adult. Differences in brain structure that come about from hormones and genes interacting on developing brain cells are believed to be the basis of sex differences in countless behaviors, including sexual orientation. Prenatal factors that affect or interfere with the interaction of these hormones on the developing brain can influence later sex-typed behavior in children. This hypothesis is originated from countless experimental studies in non-human mammals, yet the argument that similar effects can be seen in human neurobehavioral development is a much debated topic among scholars. Recent studies, however, have provided evidence in support of prenatal androgen exposure influencing childhood sex-typed behavior.

IRT:mikethenovice: Christmas! ah yes, just a thought since people are picking their brains about Colleen wanting to introduce a bill to change Memorial day from the last Monday of May to May 30th. What would be her logic for changing it from the last Monday of May to may 30th? Why not leave it the way it is and have the last Monday of May observed as Memorial Day. By having Memorial day observed on the last Monday of May, the work week will not have to be broken up in the middle of the week if it was observed on May 30. But since you've mentioned Christmas, the celebration of Thanksgiving and Christmas should be changed to the last Friday of November and December. There is a logic to this. Because Thanksgiving and Christmas is traditionally a time for families to travel and celebrate and spend time together, wouldn't it be nice and convenient for families to spend the three day weekend celebrating the joyous season and not worrying about having to go back to work the next day, especially if those days fell on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Sunday? Congress would have to vote if a bill like this was ever introduced by a congress person. Just a thought..nothing to get excited about.

What the hell is Rep Hanabusa trying to do? I mean after all we have a Veterans Day when we honor the vets both dead or alive. And so Memorial Day is for us to honor all our dead both Vets or non Vets. Now think about this, when I was a Kid, many years ago, Memorial Day was called DECORATION DAY! So we all commemorate our deceased loved ones. Not just the Veterans on that day in May. Now don't get me wrong about these fallen heroes who deserve to be remembered and honored but so do all our other loved ones past. There should be an emphasis that everyone else is an american and not just the veterans. Yeah, Hanabusa, don't you have anything else to do or think abour?

I appreciate what you are trying to say, but your facts are a wrong. Memorial Day is a day to honor our fallen soldiers. "Memorial Day is a United States federal holiday which occurs every year on the final Monday of May. Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces. Formerly known as Decoration Day, it originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the Union and Confederate soldiers who died in the Civil War. By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been extended to honor all Americans who have died while in the military service.

Hey clown, it never really had a set date across the country. It was celebrated on different days depending on what part of the country you were. The "bozo" you refer to changed 4 holidays to make them into three-day weekends mainly for the purpose of uniformity and to allow the people of the United States to have the time and ability to honor their loved ones on a long weekend (travel time, family gatherings, etc.). It was the right thing to do. Before you shoot your mouth off, do some research and understand the subject you are wrongly talking about. This loser of a career politician has no business being in office and making stupid, unneeded, useless requests that are beyond laughable. Every time she opens her mouth all that comes out is arrogance, lies and bull.

This is totally misguided. Apparently, families are enjoying the Memorial Day weekend too much, and she views it's perception as the celebration of the beginning of summer as somehow sorded. Growing up, our year revolved around Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, and the week between Christmas and New Year. Yes, we sincerely honor the Nation's heroes and fallen, and their sacrifice, too, on Memorial Day; and our nations workers on Labor Day. There is nothing wrong with this beloved American tradition that should cause us to break it up and remove the memorable, outdoorsy enjoyable aspects in order to more seriously spend the time in sackcloth & ashes.

I don't think that changing the date of the holiday will change the attitude or gratitude of those who want to give thanks and show respect for our fallen heroes. What will change it is how we legislate laws that will help our wounded warriors. For in doing so, we are showing how much we appreciate our military's service. It is really sad that our wounded warriors have to rely upon volunteers for help when it comes to reintegrating into civilian life. Our military should take care of its soldiers after they have been injured to the point of not being able to go back to serving. If Hanabusa wants to do something to show her diligence regarding our fallen heroes, she should put in real legislation. Not token ones to show that you care. She obviously has more time on her schedule to pursue such a legislation. Why not pursue legislation to ensure that our Congress works for the people. Currently, Congress work for themselves as can be seen in legislations such as the one where they made insider trading illegal but made an exemption for themselves. How hypocrite is that? And how about the time that they all went AWOL and dismissed themselves even after the real job was not done? They left the table while the sequester situation was still hanging claiming that there was nothing else to do. Maybe we need to take a closer look at their duties and see if their work justifies their salary. Either way, Hanabusa just made it easier on the voting public.
