Labor Day !!!!!

Discussion about all things non-checkers.

Labor Day !!!!!

Postby Jay H on Sat Sep 03, 2011 1:55 pm

Anyone seen Bob Newell's 'Checker Maven" for 9/3/11.....LABOR DAY 2011...?
This post goes with it.
As an American, I feel Labor Day is the single most celebratory day of the year....it is a demonstration of the strength of American Labor.
And yes, I DO HAVE THE DAY OFF !!!
While I was considering what brew to buy for the picnic I am having, it became , once again, a no-brainer to me...

Why...?
As simple as the verbiage pasted to the side of the can....

Image
That's right....
UNION MADE !!!!
Thanx for the Maven, Bob, and....
GOD BLESS AMERICAN LABOR !!!!!!

Thanks for the info Jay,
If I ever start drinking again, I will know exactly where to look to decide which beers not to drink or support.
Only Non Union companies will get my support.

Greetings:

Speaking of unions, the following article concerns me:

I hope I don't lose any friends over this, but I happen to be a Republican and a supporter of the Hampton Roads Tea Party.

God Bless America.

Best Wishes,

I see President Obama, a Democrat, and Michigan Governor Snyder, a Republican, have common ground. The President wants more infrastructure projects for America, and the Governor wants a new "bridge to Canada," the Detroit River International Crossing....The Checker Maven's most recent weekly edition was just inspiring! --George Hay

Jay I'm somewhat disappointed. Granted that beauty is in the eye of the beerholder, but in my opinion there's a much better beer brewed not too far north of you.

Of course they booted out their union a few years back, so you're welcome to spend your money to support whatever you like. Personally I support local brews (market cross in carlisle, troegs and abc in harrisburg, etc) mostly, but will buy a Yuengling before any other American beer.

LOL John .... that's a bit of a conundrum...

I am partial to beer.... although i prefer wine.... but either way i am not a big drinker at all....
but i do not like unions or their bullying tactics very much at all... to each their own i guess !

cheers

PS which date do you guys celebrate labour day up there??? here it is May 1st (very close to the queen's birthday holiday, which by the way it isn't the queen's birthday at all, but who would be silly enough to knock a free holiday???)
