NEW HOLIDAY SLOWS THE FEDERAL LEVIATHAN FOR ONE DAY: Yesterday, the House of Representatives passed and Biden signed into law a bill declaring Juneteenth to be a federal holiday.  Since Juneteenth (June 19) falls on a Saturday, that means today (the very next day after the bill became law) will be the work holiday.  A meeting of the Commission on Civil Rights, which had been planned for a long time and noticed in the Federal Register, had to be called off.  I assume similar activities have been called off throughout the federal bureaucracy.  It’s interesting that even our nation’s leaders are unconvinced that what the federal government does is important.
