COVER

Labor Day, the

first Monday in

September, is a

creation of the labor

movement and is

dedicated to the

social and economic

achievements of

American workers.

It constitutes a yearly

national tribute to

the contributions

workers have made

to the strength,

prosperity, and wellbeing

of our country.

To others...

When Congress

passed the

Thirteenth

Amendment to the

U.S. Constitution

in 1865, ending

slavery, servitude

could continue as

"punishment for

crime whereof the

party shall have been

duly convicted."

This effectively

legalized slavery

among imprisoned

populations,

allowing former

slaveholders in the

South to implement

a convict lease

system,

Some would argue

this became the

modern labor

movement.

ALASKAN AMERICAN NATIVE ARTS AND

ACCEPTANCE OF LGBTQ IN THEIR CULTURE

The Alaskan Natives were first called

Eskimos which is now considered a

derogatory term as it has evolved over

the last century. The term Eskimo

is historically assumed to have come

from an Ojibwa word meaning to net

snowshoes. The people of Canada and

Greenland prefer the word Inuit to define

the native peoples. Inuit has the meaning

of "people".

Figure

$116.00 amazon.com

From the BL manga series that has

sold over two million copies and

has an anime series in the works,

"TEN COUNT"(Also in this week's

Picks), come 1/8th scale figures. The

first in the series is a figure of the

psychotherapist loved by BL fans

around the world, Kurose Riku! He is

the very first male figure to join the

B-Style series, with an original design

illustrated by the manga's author,

Rihito Takarai.

#2 ZX 4000 4D Shoes

$350.00 adidas.com

In the '80s, the science of sport

and wearable technology were new

concepts. The ZX running series

adopted these ideas with a visibly

technical design that became a

hallmark of its style. In this version,

an adidas Primeknit upper offers

lightweight support.

#3 Ten Count, Vol. 1

$12.99 amazon.com

Corporate secretary Shirotani suffers

from obsessive-compulsive disorder.

One day he meets Kurose, a therapist

who offers to take him through a

ten-step program to cure him of his

compulsion. As the two go through

each of the ten steps, Shirotani's

attraction to his counselor grows.

#4 FUKR Venom Mesh Ring Singlet

$35.00 andrewchristian.com

Featuring our sleek black snakeskin

print and mesh detailing, this singlet

is downright toxic. What more

could you want? Maybe the built-in

Almost Naked pouch, which will

make you feel like you’re not wearing

anything at all! We’ve virtually

eliminated sticking, squashing, readjusting,

sweating and chafing. Your

package will fall naturally into the

anatomically correct pouch to create

a truly enjoyable and unique wearing

experience.

THE LAST WORD

List of companies supporting

Trump’s re-election:

- Bang

- Inn N out

- Chick-fil-A

- Taco Bell

- McDonald’s

- Wendy’s

- KFC

- Pizza Hut

- Olive Garden

- Waffle House

- IHOP

- Carl’s Jr.

Many celebrities along with social media

users are bringing awareness to and calling

for the cancellation of companies that

support Donald Trump and his campaign

efforts.

Those that remember the Watergate

scandal, know it’s illegal for people to

secretly donate to a presidential candidate.

Hush money powerful politicians and

company leaders get around this is by

donating to 501(c)(4), 501(c)(6) and other

advocacy groups that donate money to

single candidates during their campaign,

according to the Center for Responsive

Politics and the Brennan Center for

Justice. This form of “dark money” or

“dark donations” is how elected officials

are essentially able to receive unlimited

amounts of money from private donors

since these non-profits can engage in

limited political activity and raise/donate as

much as they want without disclosing their

donors.

People can look up which individuals from

certain companies donated to politicians’

campaigns using the FEC or websites like

Good Unite Us. According to the Federal

Election Commission, Trump has already

received $43,814,715.72 in contributions

for his re-election campaign and also

notoriously funds his own campaign being

a billionaire.

Uline faces boycotts over its owner's

association with Donald Trump and huge

dark money donations.

If you're not familiar with Uline, this

company is the preferred shipping supplies

vendor for the beauty industry. The

founder Rihcard Uihlein has donated

millions of dollars to pro-Trump PAC's and

committee. According to reports, Richard

donated $500K to America First Action

Super PAC, $200K Great America PAC,

$3.5 million to Tea Party Patriots Citizen's

Fund Super PAC, $500K Trump Inaugural

Committee, and $5.4K to Donald Trump's

2016 election campaign. During the 2020

election cycle, Uline is the second biggest

donor of Trump's campaign.
