Remember Labor Day? The factories would all close. Huge picnics would break out and the last days at the beach would be celebrated, and schools would start the day after.

NOW, we’re a service industry driven economy. Restaurants and stores are all open. Schools have all ready started in August killing hopes of any late summer plans. Everyone is working to serve the public to squeeze that last dollar out of their pockets, ’cause it’s winter clothing sales at the retail stores now “Gotta get that snow suit and Halloween Decorations before they run out”.

And our dear leader, Ossama, is going to magically pull jobs out of his ass, of course he’ll take credit for the holiday hiring jump, but that’s just more service jobs.
When are you going to get it through your thick, Black skull that if you don’t stop the out sourcing and nullify NAFTA, all we are going to be are the worlds Butlers and Chauffeurs in the next 5 years. Not to mention that everyone, except the residents in the gulf, are ignoring the fact that the BP well is still leaking more each day.
The Republicans don’t want Ron Paul. Maybe the Democrats should draft him.
But, on the other hand, unless term limits are enacted, they’re as big a bunch of assholes as their tea totaling elephant brethren.

The point of the article is well taken. Why you felt the need to call the President, Osama, and use the term Black (capitalized B) head, I don’t know. This problem has been around for a long time before we had a black president, and it’s not like he’s the cause.
The monied elite, and what’s left of the middle class do get the holiday off, and they want to be able to shop and go to restaurants, and have a massage and get their hair done. They somehow think most people are working 9-5, M-F, because working people are invisible to them.

I spent 30 years in Restaurant Management being one of those ‘invisible people’ along with the thousands of people I managed over the years. I found that Labor Day was just that. Another day to Labor, just as more and more people are finding out who used to be blue collar factory workers and actually had the holiday off.
As far as capitalizing the word Black, it is always proper English to cap colors when describing an individual who is the first at something, particularly since it is entirely inappropriate to refer to him as a Negro, Kenyan, or a Questionable Birth Certificate President. And…being from the South as I am, he’s really getting off easy, by the standards of my fore bearers.

I find it odd that every president, and damn near every pol, is into this NAFTA/shift jobs overseas/no tariffs BS. Makes you wonder if we simply are a fascist state now, with an emphasis on the big corporate masters.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
