After wading through some of the usual tripe from bud, boca, chalice and a few others, it strikes me that today must have been an empty celebration for many people. For to be thankful one must appreciate all that one has, material and otherwise, and how it all came to be.
Take the freedom and liberties we enjoy by simply having had the good fortune of being born into the greatest and most powerful democracy the world has ever known. If you live in America, you have already won the lottery. Fewer than 4 out of every 100 people on Earth have that privilege. Regardless of your lot in life would you take a little blue marble with your name on it and drop it back into the bucket for the world lotto sweepstakes in hopes of improving your life? Are you kidding me?
Despite your good fortune, all some of you can do is complain, undermine our country, disrespect our military and denigrate the sacrifice countless of your fellow citizens have made for you so that you can live your life.
To be thankful one must have gratitude, appreciation and understanding of what others have selflessly done for you. Since you are unable to connect the dots on this concept, you will forever remain nothing more than a bunch of marginalized, malcontented, ingrates and dilatants. You will never understand the pride some of us feel every time we meet a person in uniform or have a lump in your throat when you hear God Bless America. You will never know what it feels like to win a hard fought battle or to achieve more than even you think you can when really tested. You will go to your graves criticizing the people in the trenches doing the dirty work all the while complaining that they didn't do more for you.
I wonder how many of the other 96 people that did not win the drawing would love to have the opportunity you are squandering? It's a shame we'll never know. Semper Fi? You're damn right Semper Fi!!! And God bless them for it.
How do you explain this mr. fascist?
Of course you being a sheeplike slave wouldn't hesitate to give any xyz quasi official looking dweeb your id and probably your wallet. You're used to being used and abused by government, it's why you love an incompetent like w who the majority of the country have now figured out is a liar and a crook, finally. Those with the slightest hint of intelligence knew it long before he was selected. Of course if enough people don't stand up to corruption then you'll just end up being happy government slave, I doubt you'll notice any difference.
Projection syndrome. It's you fascist freaks who are increasingly lonely because there are fewer and fewer of you. The majority of mainstream Americans are about to take America back. Look at the polls. Your 5-year experiment in fascist imperialism has failed just like the last one did under LBJ. The last remaining fascists like Cheney and Rumsfeld are dinosaurs. The future belongs to us patriotic Americans who support our constitution and everything its stands for.
Ript, you are one of the conspirazoid wonders, who wasted his life in ignorance, learning nothing. You then blame 'the system' for your miserable ilfe.
Maybe you can reform the 'Know-Nothing' political party.
Only wingnuts and you buy your bull
Eventually you'll have two choices - leave the US or remain forever marginalized. I don't care which it is. All but the really stupid wise up by the time they leave their extended adolescence and go out on their own.
