Labor Day and 9/11 Anniversary

The Labor Union movement brought about child labor laws, the eight-hour workday, health and pension plans, work safety rules, and collective bargaining among other values.

On the tenth Anniversary of 9/11:
One group suggests flying an American flag of any size on 9/11 should mark the observance. Another suggests we fly the flag upside down. I disagree with a flurry of flags.

9/11/11 should be a day of mourning and lamentation for the victims of the attacks, the inglorious invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, our brutal torturing of enemy prisoners of war, killing of American soldiers, civilians and soldiers of the invaded countries, the horror of stealth bombers, denigration of the people of Islam and serious losses to our constitutional rights like Illegal wire and phone tapping by police and FBI and CIA and illegal searches of American citizen’s person and property.

We can rejoice that our country maintained peace and prosperity at home but we cannot forget that we have caused mayhem in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11.
