We celebrate it by taking a day off from work?
Oh, yeah-I forgot, government loves and understands us better than our employer, who typically has face to face contact with us on a daily basis.
So government lays the heavy hand of enforcement (read the power of the gun) on your employer, mandating the employer provide a day off with pay; something for nothing!
On the surface, given our personal corruption, we are favorably disposed to the idea..
But, upon reflection, we ought to recognize, “…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…”.
Somebody has to pay.
First off, your employer.
Who passes it on to the consumer.
And YOU are a consumer, so you pay!
On top of that, because Govt. intervened on your behalf the”bureaurats” who have to be paid for their involvement; hence, and increase in your taxes!
ALWAYS remember the simple axiom,: There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch.
Somebody has to pay, and since it typically isn’t the politician; guess who foots the bill?
Hence, “…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch…”
