I hope everyone has a great day and over eats!!! Posting will resume tomorrow as I avoid every store in town.
Newt Gingrich has graced the internet world with a Thanksgiving Day message that ends with:
Tomorrow we give thanks to the Creator who is the source of our sovereignty.
We pause in gratitude to He who has endowed us with the inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
And just as no government has granted these rights, no government can legitimately take them away.
This is the freedom the pilgrims prayed for, Washington fought for and Lincoln stood for.
As important as it is to give thanks tomorrow is to remember, as Americans have before us, to whom we give thanks.
May you and your family have a happy, healthy and blessed Thanksgiving.
Yeah Newt – the American Indians are so thankful for their sovereignty, rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness that was granted them by whitey. What a total ass.
Chris Matthews is dead serious about running for the Senate in Pennsylvania - and shopping for a house in the state and privately discussing quitting MSNBC as proof of his intense interest, according to NBC colleagues, political operatives and friends.
Even so, some NBC insiders think it’s all simply a negotiating ploy to jack up his contract.
The garrulous host of the show "Hardball with Chris Matthews" has already picked out a home in Philadelphia to establish residency in the state, according to a Democratic operative in discussions with him about a potential candidacy. Over Thanksgiving weekend, at his vacation house in Nantucket, Matthews’ family gave him their full backing.
If he does end up leaving MSNBC, then it will be interesting to see who MSNBC finds to replace him. Of course it won’t be someone new. MSNBC is a strong believer in recycling – especially when it comes to talent.
Have a good and safe Thanksgiving. I'll be out all day getting my tummy full.
This Thanksgiving can be considered one of irony. The holiday is to celebrate
the friendship between the pilgrims and Indians which of course turned into us
taking the land from the Indians and giving them a life time of repression.
This Thanksgiving is a little different though. It is almost a turn around.
While some of the tribes today have been still screwed by members of this
government and their buddies, some are now getting payback. That payback is
coming from Michael Scanlon and the cooperation he is giving the Justice
Department in going after the ones who screwed our current native Americans out
of millions. That is justice and it is sweet.
We can also be thankful this year that we do not have to face George Bush
getting re-elected to office. While we have three years left of the most
incompetent leader, we will make sure his remaining time in office is hell.
We find out news this week that Bush was told ten days after the September 11
attacks he was informed Saddam had no ties to the attack. With our continues
fight and pushing to hold our leaders accountable, this is a milestone in
finding out the true reason for attacking Iraq. That is very promising news that
I am thankful for.
The biggest thing I am thankful for is the extension of Fitzmas this year.
Bush is now looking at a dark cloud hanging over the remainder of his Presidency
as we wonder and find out who in his administration disclosed classified
information. The prosecution of a traitor against our great nation is something
to be extremely thankful for but until that time we can rest assured that
traitor is scared and hiding.
