9.3-5 Labor Day Weekend Open Threads
Happy and Healthy Labor Day, fellow Birdies/Progressives!! 🙂 Our fellow Birdie Aint… gave me the musical inspiration to Open this Holiday OT with Isaac Hayes.
His “Hot Buttered Soul” is one of the great standard R and B albums. I own it along with several others. 🙂 Anywho, the latest news from the Space Coast is the second attempt to launch Artemis this afternoon. Weather will be the big ? We’ve had some wicked t-storms lately, and two tropical storms are forming in the Atlantic. Well, it’s that time of year, unfortunately. From our casa to yours, everyone enjoy and have a safe and healthy Holiday weekend. Our Nest is Open. 🙂
Guaranteed the GQP will take this decision to their state and US supreme courts to be over ruled.
Labor Day Sale- all must go need money for lawyer’s.
You’re a mess, fellow Futurist! 🙂 LOL.
Thanks Orl! Happy LD weekend!
Uh huh and a national strike would cut them all off at the knees, and show them who’s really the boss.
CNN is just more corporate news, and yes, you can’t believe a damned thing any of them say anymore. And honestly, we probably never could. It just used to be there was less noise and we mistook that for clarity.
We all know that May 1 is the real Labor Day but here’s a few songs
Never was into country, but this lovely smart gal is talented…period!
One of my favorite musicals ever. And definitely one of the most pro labor musicals ever. F’k Thatcher!!!!
Great tunes, jcb!! 🙂 Happy LD back at ya!!
The US has a ruling class – and Americans must stand up to it by Senator Bernie Sanders
This situation didn’t happen overnight. It was plotted and planned over decades. The bad part is it is a pattern repeated throughout recorded world history. It would be one thing if these “elite” aholes had any sort of positive vision. Their out-of-control greed blinds them. I am reading more and more comments stating folks are glad they didn’t have kids. It’s a pathetically sad statement. I have no answers, and the natural optimist in me wishes I did. 🙁
Thanks, obf. Yep, I had forgotten how Isaac Hayes could bring the funk until the Terry Gross show reminded me a few days ago. Happy Labor Day weekend.
You and I are on a similar wavelength when it comes to soul/R & B, Aint…. I hope you are getting down with your family and enjoying the long Holiday weekend. 🙂
Eeewww. That’s awful, and no amount of boiling would make it safe. Boiling may kill microbes, but it doesn’t kill chemicals.
I hope they get some relief soon. Of course you can get drinking water brought in, but you can’t bathe. I remember after the tornado, when we had no water for days, that the thing I wanted more than anything was a shower!
We just went through a weather situation where our power was out for 5 hours earlier this week. I know exactly what you’re saying having been through hurricanes, pk. Thank god, hubster was working back when Charley and crew came through in 2004. We lost power for almost 2 weeks. He was doing tech at the old O-ville Arena, and we were able to use their showers and hang out in the a/c as they were on generators. But, that pales next to what’s going down with folks losing their homes to floods and wildfires. 🙁
OH HELL NO!!!!!!! Have the congresscritters and their families go first then i’d believe it. maybe…..
More updated version of Pete Seeger’s tune..
I have always felt that this song should have been our National Anthem from the first time I heard it done by the great Pete Seeger. 🙂
Unfortunately, I think the libertarians wouldn’t agree with the sentiment it poses.
As this is an open thread….
This young woman reminds me why I can no longer watch Rising or Crystal and Saagar’s program.
Alpine’s pop is 6040 according to the 2020 census, which means 10% of the populace potentially went to the rally. I would imagine it was more of a county turnout rather than the little town.
Y’all have tolerated my howling about the 50-State-Strategy. LOL. I do it cos it works!! 🙂
