100 Words- Something for Labor Day.

Labor Day: First established, Federally, in 1894, after the Pullman Strike. The September date was chosen to divorce it from the May 1 celebration of International Workers’ Day because of fear it would be connected to Communism. It’s the day business pretends to honor the people who made them filthy rich. If they really wanted to honor them, they’d pay a living wage.

Labor Day: One of the biggest retail sales days, so of course, retail sales people have to work, not to forget all the health and safety workers. Ironic, isn’t it?

Fuck it; Let’s fire up the BBQ

I never know what to say about myself. I let what I write try to speak as to who I am. I can only add, here, that I am 72, live in a nursing home, am twenty years a cancer survivor, and identify as a gay male. I intend to use this blog as storage for poems? written over the long years (and still being written). This does not preclude other uses.

    The final line makes it! Also, spent yesterday listening to two people talk about how Obama is a bald-faced liar, dragging us down the path towards Communism and that Palin should be our next president because all she does is “tell the truth”. I never uttered a word. If people can be that lost in delusion, clearly there is no hope for them.
