Labor Day 2012

Today is Labor Day, an American federal holiday observed on the first Monday in September that celebrates both the economic and the social contributions of workers.

Labor Day pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. It also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events.

Is there a solution to the economic problems facing the United States of America? Of course there is. A simple solution.


Invalidate ALL the Tax Exemptions, most especially the self-proclaimed churches, of any and all denominations . All (meaning everybody) should be taxed at the highest rate available in the land, and the IRS should be charged to dutifully and rigorously collect every single penny due.


Corruption, greed, and downright fraud in government perpetrated by lobbyists, staff members, and myriad lackeys of elected government officials should be sought out and punished to the hilt. This would free up many millions (billions?) of dollars for use in government programs that will bring prosperity to the citizens that only a truly benevolent small government can provide to a free society.

Most of all . . .
