Thread Name: Juneteenth - another US Independence Day
Subject: RE: BS: Juneteenth
Juneteenth is not a bland nothing. "Happy" doesn't suit it. It's an important date that, despite what the current despot in the White House thinks, has been on the public radar for a long time. Only now it begins to feel like legislation to make it into a federal holiday will have the teeth to make it happen. Not with this president, but in the next administration.
The first year of the next administration is going to be spent undoing all of those executive orders Trump threw around like confetti, and that same first year or more of the next administration is going to be spent rounding up disaffected former federal employees to come back to the jobs and clean out the appointees who Trump put in to destroy the federal government.
