Labor Day 2012

My hat is off to the men and women who fought the Man and won rights for workers in the streets outside the factories and mines they worked in. Most of you are dead by now from old age, but in your youth you took a beating from the police and governments pushing the company line, and pushed back harder than they could take. Change came through you, by your hands, and you were a greater generation than ours measured by your deeds and the challenges you faced.

I'm only sorry that your leaders ended up in bed with the Fed and the Mafia and in some cases the companies you fought. But what was won is ours. Ours to keep or ours to lose. Thank you for Opportunity.
