Labor Day clipart 1 II

It's been a tough week for Texas and other Gulf Coast states, which have plenty of work ahead of them in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. It's our hope that no matter where you live in this big country of ours, you'll take some time to appreciate your freedoms, family members and maybe show a little love to your pickup truck on this Labor Day weekend.

In the spirit of the holiday, let's remember there are many people doing a lot of hard work throughout the country, so don't be shy about saying thank you. And in that spirit, we'd like to say thank you to our readers and prolific commenters on this site. Your opinions and insights are hugely appreciated. Happy Labor Day.

As a former military officer, I very much appreciate your patriotism, PUTC!
Thank you, and may God Bless America.

This isn't veteran's day, nmgom. Instead of patriotism, we should be celebrating the work of ALL individuals who have worked so hard to make this country what it is. Labor is as important as military and the people are more important than any of it. We're taking this day off to celebrate all those who spend every working day making the things that make our lives easier.

I appreciate the freedom to go to the movies, have an iPhone and buy whatever truck I want. The second-generation Honda Ridgeline may not be as macho or hardy as Papa Jim's 2wd RC WT 5.3, but it's a solid suburban workhorse that is quiet and comfortable.

Love? I personally love the Honda Ridgeline better than any other truck for everyday driving and basic weekend home-improvement-type tasks, but if Papa Jim wants to keep hating Honda that is his choice. Happy Labor Day. We know you'll be laboring all day on Putc.

Papa Jim--How many 2018 Honda Ridgelines have you driven? Exactly. Zero. Go test drive one and get educated before it's too late and you miss out being that you believe it's being cancelled and all. But you will find is why owners agree it is a better truck than Chevy and better for retirees. Happy Labor Day to all.

Someone is posting in my name again. Article has nothing to do with Ridgelines. Labor Day is a day to recognize the hard work and sacrifice of those workers that made the USA what it is today. It is good to appreciate veterans but veterans have their own day which is Veterans Day.

I would like to take this day, to thank all the people for the labor of love they showed to Southeast Texas and Houston!

Agree it was a labor of love and it restores faith in our country. We are still a nation where we are at our best during a crisis.

Nonsense. Labor Day is a patriotic day, RoadWhale. And that's precisely why it's one of the national holidays on which we fly the American Flag (for those who don't do so routinely):
http://americanflagfoundation.org/all-about-the-flag/flag-holidays/

It's also a specific tribute to the American worker, --- yes, starting in 1888 --- but whose incredible efforts culminated in winning WWII, according to (then) President, Harry S. Truman. Without the incredible production** by the American worker, the US Military would NOT have been able to pull off its resounding victory.

Again as a former member of the US Military, I owe America's workers a huge debt of gratitude. The link is unmistakeable: why do you think that PUTC shows a patriotic banner and a photo of a military parade (see above)? BTW: What branch of the US Military did you serve in, RoadWhale?


-------------
** After the attack on Pearl Harbor (7 Dec 41), President Roosevelt offered a speech to the nation, January, '42. He challenged American industry and its workers (many of whom were women, by the way) to produce 20,000 aircraft by year's end. According to my dad, everyone thought he was nuts for demanding such an impossible task.
By the end of November, we had produced 80,000. Any questions?

And it wasn't just "Rosie the Riveter": ALL American workers laid their lives (and families) on the line just as surely as US Military personnel, but, of course, in a different way....
