Ever wonder how, when, and why it came to be that we have a 40-hour work week (as a presumed norm), or why there are child labor laws, or a minimum wage? 

 

Do you think today’s corporatist conservatives on the Supreme Court must be the worst ever?

About Peaceful Patriot

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
