Today I went to comcast because I needed to exchange some equipment and I find out they are closed because of MLK day. The sign said "In honor of MLK, we are closed today" But what I read was "its black people day, we ain't going to work" MLK is a racist holiday that does nothing to help the american people. Its just a day that is an excuse not to work. Other holidays all help the economy. 4th of July, people are out buying fireworks and going out spending money. 4th of July creates jobs. Christmas people are out buying presents, trees, and donating time and money to others. Christmas creates Jobs. Thanksgiving, people are out buying turkeys, flying or driving to see family, ect. Thanksgiving creates jobs. New years, people are going out, buying alcohol, throwing parties, ect. New years creates jobs. Martin Luther King day....Nothing. Its just a day that people have 1 less day of income. Traders have 1 less day to trade. Businesses have 1 less day of business. Nobody makes money from this day which makes it a useless holiday. The government will lose between 1 to 2 billion dollars in lost tax revenue because of this holiday. Money that could go to schools, to health care, or a variety of other things. People should not get a day off work if that holiday doesnt somehow boost the economy or at least create some kind of income that doesnt cost us money. I mean, its pathetic when even Arbor day generates more income for Americans than this stupid holiday.
