    Default Cinco de Mayo more relevant than Labor Day

    Speaks volumes about Detroit. Not a single presidential candidate nor UAW official will speak today at the Labor Day parade.

    Yep CD, noteworthy in a much as this states union background/ history.

    I been on both the good and bad side of union representation (mostly) good. I guess no one could break away to attend!

    When you read the News or Freep... did you miss the part where it started out "Amid UAW crisis.... no shows"

    Detroit's time has long faded away. ..and with it the state of Michigan. Every census leaves Michigan with fewer representatives in Congress... Fewer national politicians, especially from the left will want to be associated with Detroit.

    The irony of that. To think we've been so loyal party-wise (Dem-Detroit)......

    Good I refuse to put all my bushels in that basket!

    What kind of sing the praises narrative would a candidate speak about, regarding Big Labor when the UAW is under investigation for corruption ? I think that is the correct move, at this point.

    The only people who celebrate Cinco de Mayo in Mexico are American tourists.

    Where as in Fla with a heavy Hispanic population it is widely celebrated with events and concerts,us gringos do not attend as much if not all is in Spanish,it is not just a Mexican thing.

    Most are working on Labor Day so in general it becomes another day or a day off,nobody really celebrates it on the scale Cinco de Mayo,not even close.

    Labor Day gets me a little depressed (I snap out of it when Football starts) May 5th makes me happy.

    I'll do everything I can to support the workers, the rank and file and to prosecute corrupt organizations and their officials.

    Vote for me. Vote often.

    Is this more evidence of the postmodernists movement of abandoning your own culture, embracing others and leaving you with nothing?

    Pretty much in urban settings but if you were to try it in another country you would be shunned.Rural areas still celebrate American traditions and shockingly even Christmas.

    ^ thread is about Cinco de Mayo Outside when used as an example of a holiday or tradition that is increasingly less celebrated why would I elaborate on it?

    The best that you could come up with is clearly spelled out in the first reply to the thread.

    Another Fifth...

    The Fifth of November
    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.

    Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.

    What you said reminded me of V for Vendetta. Couldn't help myself.

    Unions ate their own lunch for 40 years! Now the next generation is paying the price. Good paying jobs and great benefits were not enough!
