Today’s the day the entire nation stops and takes a minute or more to remember just what it is about this country that makes it so great!

Umm, or not.

Apparently, places like Wal-Mart, Jewel, Family Video and Blockbuster all seem to think it is okay to have their people working on a holiday.

Remember when no one was working on a holiday?

Too bad those days are gone.

If we really, truly believe in family values, let’s make every company give their employees — with the exception of emergency needed personnel — Sundays and holidays off. Every one should be able to spend time with family members at least once a week and on every major national holiday. Otherwise, we are just blowing smoke about caring about families in this country.

God Bless — Happy 4th of July!
