Labor Day – The Antithesis Holiday to the Lazy Foreign Spies, Bozo the Clown and Chicken Little

Since the IdIoTTwins are staunchly against Christianity and anything it stands for, you would think Easter would be the antithesis holiday for to their iconic beliefs. I argue, though, that Labor Day in the United States is the antithesis of these foolish foreign spies. They don’t want all the contributions of the people of the United States to the the entire world to be honored. They make fun of working family people and in particular men. Then they pretend they are just one of the boys and work, like a regular working American. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are posers. They exploit workers all around the world. And they particularly hate workers in the United States because, as I was told repeatedly in the workplace before they destroyed my mind and health, “You are making us look bad.” Imagine that spoken constantly in the whiniest most bitter voices you could ever imagine.

Every place my husband and I go, Bozo the Clown and Chicken Little destroy the unions we are in and the ones around us. They DESTROY the unions. They won’t even give lip service to respecting the unions or the workers in general. They keep eroding all our retirement programs, all the stability of jobs in the workplaces, and they denigrate people for being proud of their work.

When I was a kid we were in general taught that working the most lowly and unnoticed jobs was still something to be proud of. You should be proud of committing to work and following through. You are a valuable member of society. Now, these clowns and fear mongers make people afraid they won’t have jobs, and they make fun of the hard work people do. There is a pride in doing your work to help your own family and community. These divisive forces behind the scenes, like these IdIoTTwins, are trying to destroy that with various forms of “comedy”, but it destroys the pride people should have when they are constantly made the butts of jokes. It’s full of irony and outright stupidity when you think of how absolutely useless the people are who are making fun of the American workers, who as they work are really doing what has nobility and of worth.

The IdIoTTwins like to pretend they feed us, house us, clothe us, etc. As if we didn’t contribute at all. They act like our pay checks are charity. They act like our workplaces are charity houses, no matter how hard we work. They cause toxic work environments and when people snap because they can’t take it any more, the clowns and fear mongers rush in to say, “See! I told you those workers were the problem!” It’s gaslighting. It’s an attack on the foundation of American work ethics and sense of independence needed to survive in the most trying situations.

I want to honor my husband today. He is relentless as a worker and an active union member. Every year I am more amazed that he continues on in the face of attacks by Bozo the Clown and Chicken Little every step of his life journey. I cannot express how proud I am of my husband. He is a real man. He cares and he works hard. He tries to help people. He has an amazing sense of humor, and he uses it to build people up instead of tearing people down. He can get along with union or non-union. The bottom line is my husband takes care of me, his work place, and his community. He is a shining example of a real American worker. I celebrate him today.

Thank you, REAL Husband, who I have had the wonderful experience of being married to for 31 years and exclusively with for 3 years before that. I love you, REAL Husband.

I hate you idiot posers.

A little history from Department of Labor, USA:

History of Labor Day 

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: What it Means

Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.

Labor Day Legislation

The first governmental recognition came through municipal ordinances passed in 1885 and 1886. From these, a movement developed to secure state legislation. The first state bill was introduced into the New York legislature, but the first to become law was passed by Oregon on February 21, 1887. During 1887, four more states – Colorado, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York – created the Labor Day holiday by legislative enactment. By the end of the decade Connecticut, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania had followed suit. By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, Congress passed an act making the first Monday in September of each year a legal holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

Founder of Labor Day

More than a century after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.

Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a co-founder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those “who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold.”

But Peter McGuire’s place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.

The First Labor Day

The first Labor Day holiday was celebrated on Tuesday, September 5, 1882, in New York City, in accordance with the plans of the Central Labor Union. The Central Labor Union held its second Labor Day holiday just a year later, on September 5, 1883.

By 1894, 23 more states had adopted the holiday, and on June 28, 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a law making the first Monday in September of each year a national holiday.

A Nationwide Holiday

The form that the observance and celebration of Labor Day should take was outlined in the first proposal of the holiday — a street parade to exhibit to the public “the strength and esprit de corps of the trade and labor organizations” of the community, followed by a festival for the recreation and amusement of the workers and their families. This became the pattern for the celebrations of Labor Day. Speeches by prominent men and women were introduced later, as more emphasis was placed upon the economic and civic significance of the holiday. Still later, by a resolution of the American Federation of Labor convention of 1909, the Sunday preceding Labor Day was adopted as Labor Sunday and dedicated to the spiritual and educational aspects of the labor movement.

The character of the Labor Day celebration has changed in recent years, especially in large industrial centers where mass displays and huge parades have proved a problem. This change, however, is more a shift in emphasis and medium of expression. Labor Day addresses by leading union officials, industrialists, educators, clerics, and government officials are given wide coverage in newspapers, radio, and television.

The vital force of labor added materially to the highest standard of living and the greatest production the world has ever known and has brought us closer to the realization of our traditional ideals of economic and political democracy. It is appropriate, therefore, that the nation pays tribute on Labor Day to the creator of so much of the nation’s strength, freedom, and leadership – the American worker.
