MUST READ ► My Horrific Experience With A Psychopath

January 24, 2013

The quest for truth is a tough proposition.

Mormons and Jehovah's Witnesses both say they have the truth. Both can't be right.

Even the obvious truth is fleeting.

Take, for example, a recent Facebook photo floating around that declares unions invented the weekend. The pic's caption reads something like, "If you enjoy weekends, thank a union."

Correct me if I'm wrong (and sometimes I miss the mark), but my memory tells me that the concept of taking a day off each week can be traced back to Moses. It was literally written in stone, according to the biblical narrative.

Here's the syllogism:

In the beginning, unions created the weekend. Moses introduced the weekend via the Ten Commandments. Therefore, Moses must have been a union member.

That means that as far back as 1400 BCE people were reading the funnies in the Sunday Times while watching football.

Come to think of it, the idea of a workless weekend actually began with the creation event. On the seventh day, the story goes, God rested. That precedent was set in 4004 BCE according to Ussher. The fact that both God and Moses were members of the AFL-CIO should weigh heavy on our elected representatives when considering right to work laws.

Maybe it's the TWO-day weekend for which unions take credit.
