Labor Day Weekend Open Thread

Enjoy your Labor Day holiday weekend, everyone. I’ll check in when I can. :)

Southern sunrise

Southern Sunrise - The rising sun highlights Earth's atmospheric layers in a high-resolution picture taken August 27 by astronaut Ron Garan from aboard the International Space Station. The picture was taken as the orbiting lab passed over Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Flying high above Earth, the ISS completes an orbit every 90 minutes, so astronauts see 16 sunrises each 24-hour day.

    Today, I am taking down my ever-present American flag from the front porch and replacing it with the golden Gadsden snake flag.

    It’s my show of solidarity with all anti-union workers who labor without complaint and help build a stronger America.

    Call it my contribution to raising awareness of right to work states and the struggle of workers to work unimpeded by the government/union complex.

    It’s the least I can do : )
