Labor Day, a brief rundown

1) an American Federal Holiday observed on the first Monday in September that celebrates the economic and social contributions of workers, whom make up the backbone of our (faltering) U.S economy.

2) symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, barbeques, etc.

3) an important sale weekend for many retailers in the United States. Paradoxically, because of the importance of the sale weekend, many of those who are employed in the retail sector not only work on Labor Day, but work longer hours. (not much of a celebration is it?)

4) a three-day weekend for some people.

AND MOST IMPORTANTLY…

5) Labor Day signals the beginning of the NFL SEASON!

Happy Labor day, and LET’S GO GIANTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.

I think you’re seeing the resurrection of an imperial presidency and the arrogance thereof. The last time we had this was with King George III and we didn’t like it too much.

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
