Can We Save Labor Day?

Danny Tyree, FloydReports.com

Labor Day isn’t what it used to be.

Parades are less prominent. Jerry Lewis has been ousted from the MDA Telethon. Summer weather seems to drag into mid-October, and even the “no white after Labor Day” fashion dogma has crumbled.

And our day-to-day lives have made the once-great notion of a day honoring the working people of America a farce.

When you think of how much the welfare state has grown since Jerry first sang “You’ll Never Walk Alone” (and how many able-bodied individuals are milking the disability system), you feel more like punching a brick wall than a time card.

There are still workplaces where management and labor have mutual respect and are in sync for a common goal. There are also employers who forget the role of providing capital, vision, and inspiration and instead merely dump unreasonable expectations on underlings, cut corners, and practice a “see no evil” philosophy under the auspices of rubber-stamp directors.

Politicians pay lip service to the working men and women who made this country great, even as they keep the masses stirred up with self-serving class warfare rhetoric. Of course they have to save time to craft tax laws and regulations that send jobs overseas and entice undocumented workers from across the border.

Workers like to have a sense of significance and contribution. But when you realize that every cent of income tax you sweat to generate — and every cent the other wage slaves in your department generate — won’t pay for one frivolous flight by Government Official X, you feel like….

    There are honestly disabled Americans who would like to work but the country would rather hire illegals than make reasonable accommodations for the Americans with disabilities.

    • And msamericanpatriot continues with her rediculous, conspiracy theorist, illogical nonsense. She provides no evidence. And in this instance, she has not evidence. Worse, she continues to out herself as a liberal in disguise. She wants cyberspace to believe she is radical right, but when she thinks that a government program will benefit her, she wants to keep it only for her. She wants cyberspace to believe she advocates for individuals with disabilities, but she clearly cannot stand other individuals with disabilities. And God forbid you dare disagree with her flawed reasoning.

  2. Keep working if you can. Michelle Obama has only spent $10,000,000 traveling around the world with her family so far. We can expect much more travel in the next year if she thinks hubby may be voted out. We may not be able to pay the country's debt but that won't stop her from running up more debt for us to pay. While Barack looks for ways to increase government revenue through theft of the labor class, Michelle does her best to spend it before it comes in. Same elite class as Pelosi, entitled to the best, they think.

  3. This country is so upside down, I do'nt think we can get it right side up for a long time to come. The values that made this country the envy of the world is under attack daily. Our religious beleifs Judea and Christian are being compared with what the koran teaches and nothing can farther from the thruth. We must stand strong a protect our freedoms based upon the law of the land and that is our Constitution. Obama has brought nothing but discord and has polorized this country like no one else before him.

    • ALL AMERICAN says:

      That was his plan, G.P.
      It is up to us, the AMERICAN PEOPLE, to take our Country, this Great Country, back from the hands of a sytematic Solialist takeover. I am on here conztantly, like many other Patriot watchdogs. Put your Flag out today America. I DID, despite what my whole street of Socialist HOA jerks think. I’d take ‘em all on if I had to.
      Celebrate was was and still is a day for the hard working true American.
      Stay strong and vigilant my friends and Patriots.

  4. FELLOW AMERICANS:
    The Labor Day Celebration today, may not be celebrated by millions of jobless and unemployed citizens of this BELOVED AMERICA; the hopes and dreams of AMERICA will be well celebrated when OBAMA leaves the COUNTRY WE LOVE. America will not celebrate MUCH TODAY, but will celebrate inside our hearts WITH GREAT ANTICIPATION, thinking that when OBAMA AND THE LIBERAL, LEFTISTS, COMMUNISTS , BIRTH CERTIIFCATE FORGER, ILLEGAL ALIEN, LIAR, AND LASTLY BUT NOT THE LAST, " THE MOST DESTRUCTIVE PERSON ON EARTH (as claimed and proven by millions of Americans)
    Why LABOR DAY TODAY seems gloomy and lonely celebration,? It's because of obvious reasons,; 14 millions unemployed were and are the VICTIMS OF OBAMA DESTRUCTIVE AND SELF-DEFEATING POLICIES. There is no more good reasons why AMERICA IS NOW DOWN AND DEEPLY BURIED INTO A GREAT DESPAIR. "IN EVERY HARD TIMES IN OUR LIVES; THERE WILL BE THE SOFTER SIDE OF LIFE THAT MAKES OUR LIVES BRIGHTER. IT IS THE HOPES AND DREAMS THAT WE ALL WILL ENJOY AFTER THE GREATEST STORM LEAVES AMERICA FOREVER. "tHAT IS OBAMA".

  5. I go along with Oscar Dar’s comment. The mood has changed in America under Obama’s
    Administration. I hope someday we will get our country back.
