‘Celebrating’ International Workers’ Day

Here are a few photos taken today as worker’s “celebrate”. As it has been said so many times, “A picture is worth a thousand words.”

  • Demonstrators in Paris, France, destroyed shops and threw rocks at police who responded with tear gas
  • Protests in Istanbul, Turkey, took an ugly turn as demonstrators clashed with armoured riot police officers
  • Workers in Sri Lanka, the Philippines, Cambodia, Russia and even England also held celebrations of the day

    Well, I kind of feel like celebrating and completely forgot to break any windows when I went to pick up some flower seed this morning.

    Missed opportunities. And that’s the way it goes………………

    Yeah, it’s always easy for the ‘socialists’, leftists and other ‘ists’ to round up a few battalions of pissed off youth who are on the cusp of having to work for a living to protest the impending horror of having to earn a living.
    They should also pick up a few history books and read what happened to so many of those who took to the streets and barricades in other ‘peoples’ revolutions.

    Here we had may poles at the beginning of the day, and by the end its this crap. Hubris and ignorance of history. Then, the evil of those who do know history but push this ideology anyways.
    Is it doggy day yet?
