Do you think International Left-Handers Day should be a holiday? That's today, August 13th.

    Sure! I'm left-handed and frequently get pissed at how right-handed the world seems to be. I'd like some recognition.

    I'm right-handed but I know some left-handed people. I know life is harder for them and people should be made aware of that.

    Another unfair thing for left-handed people:
    I'm a tailor, and left-handed fabric scissors are twice as expensive as right-handed ones.

    No more paid Federal Holidays, Congress isn't getting much done now as it is.

    Yeah, right.... sure it will.

    Money for nothing restores nothing and primarily exclusive to Federal & State employed majority only lessens representative confidence and add to an already overextended National debt at taxpayers expense.

    Actually I dont expect anyone to do anything except what they choose to do either by choice, necessity, convention or contract.

    You want to take the day off of work and celebrate your "left handiness" sentiment. GO FOR IT!! But I am not sending you a check to buy an Ipad under the guise of promoting consumer confidence...

    If you truly want to promote consumerism, make "Living Wage" the Federal minimum wage policy, rotate and split shifts with the qualified unemployed in Federal and State Right to Work laws, Reform Federal income tax laws that reflect fair and equitable FLAT tax rates with no deductions.Make corporations pay for the governing regulatory costs for the "privilege" of doing business in the US.

    And the list go's on. But it doesn't include "money for nothing" just because you think you are special, celebrate a myth, or want to hunt painted eggs.

    LOL.

    So you support a Federal law that would recognize "Left handedness Day" as a paid holiday?

    And where do you suppose the monies to fund the enforcement will come from? A Federal or State employee, taxes, (I pay taxes, city, county, state by way of sales tax, property tax, income tax, permits, licensing, etc, I would be paying).

    Private industry would increase the cost of services, products, etc. I would be paying IF the benefit outweighed the cost, NO CONSUMER CONFIDENCE promoted there.

    But you are right, It would be nice if policies truly reflected the interest and general welfare of the People so defined as citizens in the 14th amendment of the US Constitutions Bill of Rights and regulatory laws in the enforcement of compliance in the implementing of the "tools of privilege" were paid by those who access and exercise that privilege.

    A drivers license is not a right, its a privilege, just as "Doing business in the US" is not a right, but a licensed and regulated privilege.
