We are treated to THIS Labor Day sermon from our FAVORITE asshat, David Sirota. From Salon.com. Read, enjoy, learn. Monday, Sep  2, 2013 07:45 AM EDT How Labor Day was hijacked: 5 reminders of the day’s real purpose    Yes, plenty of holidays amount to just days off and barbecues. But this one has become particularly corrupted – By David Sirota .   Though national holidays are too often treated as cheap rationales for carefree days off, most still involve some sort of salute — however superficial — to the particular occasion’s ostensible purpose. Sure, Memorial Day is treated as the … Continue reading

Some Labor Day Observations.

Here we are, at the Labor Day holiday. A day off work, the last day of summer vacation for school students, and RELIEF on the way for beleaguered  moms who’ve been hearing cries of “I’m BORED” since mid June. I have a different take on Labor Day, and would like to share it here. What Does Labor Day Mean? In years past, we celebrated this day by remembering those who toil in all fields of endeavor, from farm hands, to factory workers, to doctors, nurses, lawyers, and Indian chiefs. Truck drivers, mechanics, hair dressers, teachers, rubbish collectors, chefs, waiters and waitresses, … Continue reading

The Next Time You Hear THIS…….

…..” We have MORE full-time workers than 2007″, hit them over the head with THIS. From Investors Business Daily.com By Jed  Graham   ObamaCare Cuts Low-Wage Workweek Near Record Low Here’s something worth paying attention to this Labor Day: The workweek in low-wage industries has fallen back to the historic lows seen at the depths of  the recession. The White House and like-minded economists have disputed the notion that  ObamaCare is having a meaningful impact on work hours by noting that the  private-sector workweek has recovered pretty much back to where it was in 2007,  before the economy tanked. But that view … Continue reading

Sometimes, Senator Lee, Motive Does Matter

Recently I saw the old Hitchcock movie, Lifeboat.  The story centers around a group of Americans whose ship is sunk by a German U-boat, leaving them stranded on a lifeboat.  Soon the U-boat is also sunk, and an evacuated German sailor seeks refuge with the Americans in the lifeboat.  The Americans disagree about whether or not to let him on the boat but ultimately they do.  The plan is to try and guide the lifeboat to Bermuda, but they have no compass and are unsure about the accuracy of their course.  Eventually the German sailor takes charge of the boat and … Continue reading

Meet Your Fate

Welcome liberals and the uninvolved: Think of the United States as an airplane.  Its structure is held together with rivets.  These rivets are made of the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence.  Their placement is dictated by the U.S. Constitution.  The result is the airplane called the united States, a Constitutional Republic. A unique country amongst all the others. Some rivets have corroded over time.  Individual liberty and freedom have been rusting away almost from the beginning.  Man has a tendency to want power and control over others.  We rejected a monarchy once upon a time and now have … Continue reading

It’s Time to Demand Accountability

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”   – Ronald Reagan From Fox News today: Student left in DEA cell to get $4 million from feds SAN DIEGO –  A 25-year old college student has reached a $4.1 million settlement with the federal government after he was abandoned in a windowless Drug Enforcement Administration cell for more than four days without food or water, his attorneys said Tuesday. The DEA introduced national detention standards … Continue reading

“Means Testing” and Marxism

“From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs!” ˜Karl Marx In the battle over government spending, we hear a lot about the need to cut “entitlement spending,” which generally means Social Security (SS) and Medicare.  What qualifies these as “entitlements,” I assume, is the obligation that’s incurred when we pass a law (unconstitutional as it may be) that requires people to pay into these programs in exchange for some promise of payment or service in the future.  Thus you are “entitled” to your promised benefit. The fact that both democrats and republicans are talking about “means testing” as … Continue reading
