"Labor Day"?Submitted by bcfast on Mon, 09/03/2012 - 10:55
"Labor Day: How it came about
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."
In light of the fact that few Americans actually work anymore, that we as a nation no longer have strength, prosperity or well-being...nor do we have social or economic achievements (other than those by the Military Industrial Complex), should we as a nation continue to observe Labor Day?
Other than a day off for those fortunate-enough to have a job, what's the point anymore? We can't even build a decent car, for cryin' out loud! Housing? Anything built today is done largely by Mexicans using power tools, nails and drywall made in China, lumber from Canada...I guess we do make wire, switches and roof shingles here...but not much else anymore.
My beef here is, this "holiday" is mute...(or moot)..however it's spelled...
Let's all do our best to educate the public this week about how this day came about in the first place...and that getting the federal government out of the way is the first-step in rebuilding America...and the ONLY way to do that is to avoid Rep/Dems.
