This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

September 11th Day Sales!!!
Just a few days ago we passed a national holiday in remembrance of the great strides the working class has made in this country. Many of us noticed the day simply because it marked another holiday in which there were promised to be "magnificent savings!".

For this Labor Day, I worked. Sure, I made time and a half because of federal laws, but I worked nonetheless.

The most powerful institutions in this country, the corporations that run it, are more than happy for many of us to forget that the struggle of the working class has been a battle against their power. So its not simply about a day. They would like us to forget that much of what we have gained as working people in America has been earned through conflict with the rich and powerful.

Today is September 11th, and I have to wonder just how long it will take before the significance of this day will succumb to the cult of consumerism. After all, we have learned (or we should have learned) that nothing is sacred in the eyes of the marketplace. I suspect that a generation or two will have to pass before people look upon this day as yet another occasion to head to the malls and spend money. After all, we've stripped much of the sacred nature from all our other holidays. And lest you think a day like 9-11 could never been used for such crass purposes, I simply have to turn your attention to the various Memorial Day sales each year. Memorial Day - a day of remembrance, has been mostly forgotten expect by those who still remember why we should observe a day for the fallen.

More and more I find that the only thing that Americans seem to stand for is the acquisition of wealth and power. For that goal we will be willing to strip any and all meaning from our culture, to believe whatever lies might serve that end and follow whomever promises to lead us to our goals.
