Fire up the grill! It’s Labor Day! A celebration of working America. Now, I’m wondering…does this mean non-working America should sit this one out? I mean, there are a lot of unemployed, layed-off, no work to be had, people in our country right now. People who would love to be celebrating Labor Day because they are part of the labor force that drives our nation forward. What if they’re collecting unemployment, using food stamps, and have medical paid for by the rest of us?
Not to put a damper on Labor Day or anything, but it’s not quite the celebration it used to be. Maybe this year we should focus our attention on the state of the union. On how the countries staggering debt could be managed more effectively for the benefit of the people of the United States. The people who’s taxes allow for such benefits.
As a tax paying, law abiding American, I would like to receive the same advantages as foreign people do who come here to live. As an American, I should be able to get a loan to start a new business easier and at a better rate than an immigrant who isn’t even a citizen and has never contributed a dime to our economy.
There comes a time when we, as the bleeding heart of the world, need to face reality. We should be able to trust our government to look out for our own first. That isn’t happening. We should be able to trust our government to secure the future for our children and grandchildren. There should be no doubt that English is the official language and that our country was founded on a belief in God.
I think it’s time for a change. I think it’s time to reclaim our nation for the benefit of it’s citizens. I thank God I live in a country where I am allowed to voice my opinions without retribution. At least for now, anyway.
Happy Labor Day!
