Labor Day

An important question to ask yourself this Labor day is where would we be without our strong industrial base?

Answer: Living as subsistence farmers like a bunch of fucking savages, while doing circus tricks for our German/Japanese overlords.

Little Drops into the Pool of Life shows off her latest in patriotic hard hats, which is way cooler than the monochromatic gray hard hat the Navy issues us while we are in the shipyard. Pay her a visit if you have time (she's a good friend to milblogs).

Unfortunately, America's corporate income tax is the second highest in the world (first is Japan) with a political leadership that is openly hostile to improving industrial infrastructure at home. Could the Democrat-proposed green jobs be a renaissance in reviving our industrial might? Obama says yes we can, but the Wall Street Journal is a bit more skeptical.
