Wait, you're telling me that most Americans aren't small business owners or corporate executives but rather people who work for others? Lol. Everyone knows that's a lie, dumbocrats. Only liberals work together cooperatively for a salary instead of stock options, that's why they're so stupid.

/The only reason I work for someone else is because I happen to need health insurance right now . . . but I'm totally going to strike out on my own someday and be filthy rich, and then I won't pay anything in taxes just like Romney.

//Okay, not really any of that, but it's still lovely to watch a Republican tout the managers on labor day.

It's funny that this is about to go to the main page and only two people have commented.

It's so obvious that no one even thinks it's funny enough to comment.

Today, we celebrate those who have taken a risk, worked hard, built a business and earned their own success.

So on Labor Day we honor everyone who created a business that had no employees?

I think Eric Cantor is a masochist and everything he does is supposed to get people to punch him in the balls. I think it turns him on.

Hell yeah... This whole 'In honor of the American Worker' bullshiat is just a Socialist plot carried out by Obama who time traveled back to the 1800's to plant the idea in good Americans' heads. They can't be blamed that they fell for Obama's fancy patter, he was from the future, after all. Thank God Eric Cantor is here to right that wrong. Maybe he's a TimeCop like Van Damme?

Job creators - who need tax cuts to hire people, by the way - don't need employees, they did everything and earned everything entirely on their own.

Yesterday must have been folk labor protest music day on the local CC radio station. I heard this beauty on the radio, that better encapsulates labor day than Cantor's BS.

Well I've been working here for fifteen years
and I've seen some changes come.
I've seen some Okies called Californians,
I've seen some poets called bums.
I've seen people working for safety,,
there must be a reason why.
Maybe we just come to work here,
We don't come to die.

Chorus:
"Cause if it's always level on the floor where you're working
and your telephone is OSHA approved
When you tell me how much you're spending on safety,
pardon me if I'm not moved.
Ever since 1970 the law has been on my side.
And I just come to work here, I don't come to die.

I would like to end up with all of my fingers,
I don't want my brain to get numb
I would like to have my ears when retirement nears,
I wanna hear that applause come.
And I'd like to see my grand-children....
Be able to pick them up when they cry.
That's why I just come to work here, I don't come to die.

Now I'll be the pitcher, and you can be the batter-
you know that's just the old ball game.
But when the line starts popping and that load starts dropping,
our situations not he same.
And I'm not saying that you don't care........
I'm not saying that you don't try
I'm saying we just come to work here....
We don't come to die.

Now you and I know that the things that aren't code
could be fixed with relative ease.
But we never did get anything by asking on our knees.
So now we're looking you straight in the eye.
Shoulder to shoulder and side by side.
We're saying we just come to work here .....
we don't come to die.
We're saying we just come to work here MISTER!
We don't come to die.

April thirtieth, the souls of the risen are leading the way The first of May, black magic night witches holiday Their torches glow, eternal evil, it summons the lords of hell
Just once a year compel and beware the spell of the jackal Can't break the spell, won't break the spell The spell of the shadowless man
Along witches fornicate, the demons dance, black mass romance In hellish praise 'round Brocken they prance Their numbers grow
A harpie chants, fire fountains glow, virgin of snow burnt By the torch of the one with no shadow, I saw his face I've seen him before, the face of the shadowless man
As dawn breaks through the trees, lonely town falls to their knees A solemn belfry begins to toll, the mass begins sing familiar hymns Man in black has his back to the crowd Spreads his wings and turns around, as my heart begins to pound
Because you, you're the one I saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night You've betrayed and cursed the light at Walpurgis Night You're the one I saw in flight at Walpurgis Night At the setting of the sun
Because you, you're the one I saw in flight, at Walpurgis Night You've betrayed and cursed the light at Walpurgis Night You're the one I saw in flight at Walpurgis Night At the setting of the sun

/May Day
//Obscure as shiat, unfortunately

From Wikipedia: Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

Those workers were obviously wealthy capitalists, fighting the oppressive marginal tax rates that Uncle Sam was imposing on them.
 
2012-09-04 02:25:20 PM
On Labor Day we celebrate the small business risk takers like Eric Cantor ... the guy who was a professional academic for 8 years, and then ran out of degrees to pursue and then went to work in the family real estate business, and then utilized his father's political connections (Reagan's state treasurer for Virginia) into a political career.

Or, conversely, that they support plutocracy and the golden rule (he who has the gold makes the rules). Can't live off the interest from your assets? Time to get bootstrappy!

/never mentioned is where the people who carry out the tasks "job creators" deem necessary are supposed to come from
//though I suppose looking at China today may be instructive regarding where the party of plutocracy and its backers wish to end up

I just find it funny that workers across the world recognize something that happen in the U.S. and it goes unnoticed in the U.S. Just strikes me as weird.

His district houses most of the nation's major defense contractors. 80% white and has been voting solid Republican since 1970. His job is to bring military pork to his district, and he's pretty good at it. You'll be hard pressed to find a Congressman who has pushed for more government spending. He actually voted NO against regulations to limit no bid defense contracts.

Even besides defense, he's pushed a lot of wasteful government spending. He voted against Medicare being able to negotiate lower drug rates for seniors which would have saved the government about $50-100 BILLION ... .of course, Big Pharma filled his campaign coffers with about $168k to get that kind of service.
