Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!


" Labor Day 2019

On September 2, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor celebrates and honors the greatest worker in the world – the American worker. Labor Day 2019 is the 125th anniversary of Labor Day being celebrated as a national holiday. "

" Labor Day is more than just a Monday holiday marking the end of summer.

At least it should be. For many of us in the union movement, it's a time to hold Labor Day picnics and rallies and often, as this election year, move full-speed ahead in political action on the way to the November elections. It's also a time to reflect on the sacrifices of those U.S. workers who came before us-especially those who lost their lives in the fight for justice at the workplace.

While the radical origins of May Day are not contested, as labor historian David Montgomery notes:

Labor Day is more a complicated affair.

Only the United States celebrates Labor Day in September. Elsewhere around the globe, nations honor workers on May 1-May Day. "

" Most people living in the United States know little about the International Workers' Day of May Day. For many others there is an assumption that it is a holiday celebrated in state communist countries like Cuba or the former Soviet Union. Most Americans don't realize that May Day has its origins here in this country and is as "American" as baseball and apple pie, and stemmed from the pre-Christian holiday of Beltane, a celebration of rebirth and fertility.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!!

Enjoy your holiday, you've earned it!

Republicans to destroy Social Security and Medicare

Washington Examiner, 8-20-2019

" Payroll tax cut would destroy Social Security and Medicare "

" If President Trump actually proposes to cut the payroll tax in order to ward off a recession, Congress ought to ignore the scheme without a second thought.

Several news organizations reported Monday evening that Trump administration officials are considering cutting those taxes in order to stimulate the economy — yes, the same economy that Trump keeps bragging is already supposedly the strongest in history. At least one White House official later denied the plan is under active consideration. Let’s hope he’s right. The idea is a stinker.

The total payroll tax of 15.3%, half paid by employees and half by employers, finances Social Security and Medicare. Both of those retirement funds are already running out of money. "

…………………………..

...we need to increase funding to Social Security and Medicare not cut it...defunding Social Security and Medicare to let it wither on the vine for tax breaks is un-American and something only Republicans would conjure up...

...harming America and the American people seems to be a way of life for Republicans...

...why do they hate America?

When did the Republican Party turn openly fascist?

CNN, 8-17-2017

" Portland protests wind down after 13 arrested and six injured "
…………..

" Saturday morning, before events in Portland had gotten underway, President Donald Trump said "major consideration" was being given to designating Antifa an "organization of domestic terror." He added, "Portland is being watched very closely. Hopefully the Mayor will be able to properly do his job." "

https://www.cnn.com/2019/08/17/us/portland-protests-saturday/index.html
……………………….

...trump and republicans are backing their right-wing, racist, white supremist, neo-nazi supporters by attacking patriotic freedom-loving Americans and Mayor with threats of branding them all as an, "..organization of domestic terror.."....

...ironically, it's the republicans and their fascist comrades which are being the obvious "terrorists" in Portland...


…"Portland is being watched very closely."

...fascist republicans should be watched even closer...


...May God Bless our defending Patriots and all Americans...


...when did the republican party turn openly fascist?

" Trump promotes Epstein-Clintons conspiracy theory, the latest in a pattern of baseless claims spread by President "

" Berkeley Heights, New Jersey (CNN) — President Donald Trump on Saturday promoted a conspiracy theory linking the Clinton family to the death of multimillionaire and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, the latest instance of Trump propagating baseless conspiracy theories and falsehoods. "

"So it's up to us."

NBC News, 8-7-2019

Joe Biden today,

" 'No moral leadership': Biden assails Trump in blistering speech "
……………..

" “We have a problem with this rising tide of supremacy, white supremacy in America and we have a president who encourages and emboldens it,” Biden said. “His own FBI director recently testified to Congress that extreme white right-wing groups, white nationalists, pose the greatest threat to racially motivated domestic terrorism. And what has Trump done? He's poured fuel on the fire.” "
……………..

" “Trump offers no moral leadership, seems to have no interest in unifying this nation. No evidence that the presidency has awakened his conscious in the least,” Biden said. “Indeed, we have a president with a toxic tongue who has publicly and unapologetically embraced the political strategy of hate, racism and division. So it's up to us.” "

...sounds like Joe's describing a lot of high crimes and misdemeanors inflicted on us by trump.

"So it's up us."

...or is it up to Nancy?

...impeach...

Are the gun terrorists winning?

...a panic stampede in Time Square over motorcycle backfire -- false panic in a Baton Rouge Walmart...

...and still Republicans do nothing...

...worse than that; Republicans stand in the way of doing anything meaningful...

...Americans are dying and need protection from gun violence...they're not getting it...

...the gun terrorists are winning...

...

Republicans are getting us killed.

...through their words, their inaction and indifference...

...Republicans are getting us killed...what's their goal???

...

It's the 2nd Amendment...

...get rid of it...

...it's the guns...even a die-hard looney couldn't mass murder 9 people in less than a minute with a baseball bat...

...make firearm ownership a privilege not a right...it would make controlling firearms much easier...

...I'm a gun owner and a gun lover...but we've got to do something meaningful about this out of control gun violence epidemic we're experiencing...

...tighten use laws, taxing, licensing, educational requirements, testing, stiff fines, imprisonment, nationwide registry, exclusions, tracking and identification would all help to keep guns under control...and limit the type of a legal gun...a single shot bolt action rifle won't pump out 30 rounds in under a minute...but you could take a deer with one...

...the government knows where your cell phone's located minute by minute...why not your gun?

...I'm willing to live under much tighter gun laws...most sensible gun owners would agree something has to be done...

...want to get rid of the NRA?...get rid of the 2nd Amendment...

...I don't know about you, but I'm tired of living in a war zone...

...do it...

America is a Gun

Who's going to protect us?

...weekly mass shootings are now occurring daily...two mass shootings in less than 24 hours...

...Washington won't protect us and local police can't...

...who's going to protect us?
