Reading companies’ annual reports to the Securities and Exchange Commission is a reliable cure for insomnia. Every so often, though, there is a significant revelation in the paperwork. This year, one of the most important revelations came from Microsoft’s filings, which spotlighted how the tax code allows corporations to enjoy the benefits of American citizenship yet avoid paying U.S. taxes.http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/970S/5257572c

#2014SEPTEMBER1  #PDMFNB #UniteBlue #GOTVLabor Day - It’s More Than Just a Day Offby Pat Taylor FullerWhat does Labor Day mean to you? It is for many a day off work and school. It’s a time for family events. But for many of us, it is much, much more. According to the U.S.Department of Labor, it is a day to recognize the contributions that American workers have made to the “strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.” http://www.dol.gov/laborday/history.htmThe history of celebrating Labor Day goes back to 1882 when the Central Labor Union in New York City held the first Labor Day celebration on Sept. 5. In 1884 the Labor Day event was moved to the first Monday in September. So Labor Day was started by Unions to recognize the American worker. Many cities still hold Labor Day parades. Often, there will be speeches by leading Union officials, business owners, politicians, and workers.What will you do to celebrate Labor Day? Will you attend a sporting event? Have a family reunion? Go watch the local parade? Whatever you decide to do, don’t forget to thank a Union member for getting this whole celebration started!https://www.facebook.com/ProgressiveDemocratsMovingForwardNotBack on Twitter @PDMFNBhttp://click-to-read-mo.re/p/96GJ/5257572c

Labor Day - It’s More Than Just a Day Off

What does Labor Day mean to you? It is for many a day off work and school. It’s a time for family events. But for many of us, it is much, much more.

He’s an American Political Aberration…if there’s a bit of controversy, you’ll find Ted Cruz lurking around, or almost certainly…in the center of it all. How can’t you have a week pass without Ted Cruz getting into the media spotlights? He lives for controversies…the ultimate political publicity hound.When it comes to making friends and influencing people, Rafael Jr. needs to read the book. The psychobabble he spews to his fanatical flock of flunkies is classic demagoguery…you got to admire him for ‘that’…he’s the GOP’s #1 star politico, when it comes to bashing opponents or causes. He also ranks among its biggest fools…often embarrassing himself, his Party, or both.From the man who brought you today’s cheap version of Tail Gunner Joe, with his own witch hunts for Commies and Terrorists…they never amount to anything, but he gets his sound bytes and photo-ops. This character seriously wants to sell all of America’s Public Lands…he’s proposed legislation on it. Nothing will come out of it, either, but he got another 5 minutes on the nightly news!His public rudeness, lack of respect to everyone who’s not a phony Christian like him, his lack of humility, and his total lack of personal moral values; a Canadian who wants to sell America’s Lands…will never get him elected President…his ability to make himself look like a total fool, doesn’t help either. “Worth noting, Dallas has a worse murder rate than the Bronx” tweeted John DeSio, spokesman for Bronx Borough President, Ruben Diaz. Another embarrasing moment for the GOP, because of Raphael “Ted” Cruz. Diaz said; “Cruz needs to grow up”. John McCain would say; take his toys away, and send him to his room. Like John, many in the GOP are tired of his negative antics…but hey! live with it…he’s just voicing the GOP agenda!http://click-to-read-mo.re/p/96D0/5257572c
