A couple of days ago I received a tweet on Twitter from a liberal I didn't know, the whole thing seemed random, but I'm thankful for the message she wanted me to receive.
Thanksgiving celebrates the day native Americans shared the harvest with illegal immigrants.
I don't want to reveal the handle of this microblogging sage, lest a stampede of tweeps rush her like some wise person atop an ant hill. That would be a precarious journey, especially for me, I HATE ants...definitely not thankful for childhood issues.
I will say that part of her Twitter handle shares the name of a certain plastic blond doll employed by Mattel and has proportions that are WAY more realistic than a liberals ability to think clearly about anything.
This tweet really got me thinking though. I mean, we all know that Native American's (NOT Indians) got a REALLY raw deal from European settlers, but not from the pilgrims Squanto helped! That Thanksgiving was pretty hunky dory. Yeah, hunky dory had a short shelf life, but so did the Obama luster and we'll have to live with that forever in the history books. So don't discount the good, however temporary, that sprang from the first ever Thanksgiving.
I then started to wonder how Native Americans and Pilgrims fit into the equasion of what Thanksgiving is today. Even though it started with that group, they were giving thanks for surviving the winter in an unfamiliar land without dying. By contrast, today we (hopefully) observe this day as a chance to reflect on being thankful for living in the most prosperous and abundant land that God has ever granted his children.
Everything we have and do makes our cup overflow, and nothing proves this to be more true than the abundance of time the poorest people in America have to say the dumbest things on things like Twitter with their cell phones when poor people in other countries spend every waking hour trying to find water they can drink without it killing them.
And then I thought, well, if doll brains wants to trip on her own guilt over what happened to the Native Americans in the years after the first Thanksgiving she is more than welcome to not buy a turkey, or any of the other ingredients needed to make a balanced turkey day meal, and just blow the money she would've spent on the nickle slots at her local Indian casino (now we can call them Indians, we get what we pay for).
Lastly, I couldn't get over this notion the pilgrims could be considered illegal immigrants. I think that it was meant to inspire guilt over public disapproval of illegal immigrants in the country today. After all, they're just here to enjoy a spread of the finest fixings our government can provide: welfare, free hospital visits, education, employment without verification, and this delicious meal is all tied together with a big HUGE helping of
taxpayer money turkey.
Just like the pilgrims.
All of that stuff swirled in my head, and I just had to respond to this tweet. Then it came to me...
Which immigration laws were broken?
...I'm still waiting for doll brains's response.
I'm thankful that ignorance really is bliss in America. I'm even more thankful that can it be swatted down so easily and publicly, for the edification of others, through the exchange of speech, ideas and technology that only comes with American freedom, a freedom that no other country can truly boast.
I'm also thankful that it can be done in 140 characters or less.Add a comment

NBC and its affiliates have been trounced in ratings over the last several years. With stations like MSNBC under their belt and liberals such as Matt Lauer and Keith Olbermann hosting programs, NBC is clearly disconnected with the average American. Another clear sign of their mismanagement: naming Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the Ground Zero Mosque, one of their "People of the Year."
What's this? Is the network itching like the yeast infection it is on Lady Liberty to do something to satisfy the void it must feel when Keith Olbermann ditched his World's Worst Person schitck?
What geniuses we have over there at NBC! Just go ahead and swing the pendulum the other way and find someone doing something despicable and then honor them. Is that supposed to change our minds about the Ground Zero Mosque. Are these idiots so full of themselves that they think a suck up session with Matt Lauer will win over the victims of 9-11?

The South Korean military went to "crisis status" on Tuesday and threatened military strikes after the North fired dozens of shells at a South Korean island, killing two of the South's soldiers and setting off an exchange of fire in one of the most serious clashes between the two sides in decades.
President Lee Myung-bak met with security-related ministers and senior aides in the underground situation room at the Blue House, the presidential office and residence, and ordered strikes on North Korea's missile base if the North made any "indication of further provocation," The Korea Herald quoted a presidential spokesman, Hong Sang-pyo, as saying.
The North blamed the South for starting the exchange; the South acknowledged firing test shots in the area but denied that any had fallen in the North's territory. It was in the same area that a South Korean naval vessel, the Cheonan, was sunk in March, killing 46 sailors. Seoul blamed a North Korean torpedo attack; the North has denied any role.
Details aren't totally clear but it looks like Lil' Kim Jong Il son is apparently the one who ordered the attack. He wants to show us he has some brass ones.
I always try to find the humor in everything, but I'm not sure I can here. The bum on the street who lives in a shopping cart and conducts important meetings in their head is amusing until he gets that nuke and plugs this...
...in to it.
North Korea is like some great Asian ventriloquist act. Everyone is entertained by the dummy and forgets about the puppet master controling it.
I have a really hard time believing that country does anything without at least a little bit of advance knowledge from China. Acts like this are toe dips in the water. Every time something like this happens it isn't really about South Korea, America is being tested.
One can hope President Obama will understand this, but his approval rating is at 39% and everything is reversed through that mirror of his. So he needs stop staring at himself and turn around to figure out its not 93%, and you can't reason with people who want to see us destroyed anymore.
In many ways our country is in a precarious position, I understand that. I also know I don't have all the facts, but I do know that we've been speaking softly for too long, and it plunges the world deeper to the point of no return. At some point, I'm afraid (but I hope I'm wrong), a big stick of some sort will have to get us out.
Oh boy, not that one Barry...

While Palin is said to not be offended by Barbara Bush's wish that she stay in Alaska, she did express a wish for Bush to stay in "the land of irrelevant."

Being informed that Palin would never do another interview with Katie Couric, a disinterested Couric retorts that she doesn't even know who Palin is talking about.

Newsweek's depiction of President Obama on its latest cover has irked some Indian Americans who, fresh off Obama's visit to the world's largest democracy, are not happy with the image of the U.S. president as the Hindu deity, Lord Shiva.
The Newsweek cover shows Obama with several arms carrying policy issues while balancing on one leg. The headline reads: "God of All Things" with a subtitle, "Why the Modern Presidency May be too Much for One Person to Handle."
Shiva, who is one of three pre-eminent gods in the Hindu religion along with Brahma and Vishnu, is considered the destroyer of the world, which must end, metaphorically speaking, in order to be reborn as a more universalistic place. However, the god's purpose is not to foretell an apocalyptic ending.

I didn't read the article, and I'm not going to. The premise is ridiculous and totally unfair to every president who came before BOZ the clown.
Why didn't Newsweek think the presidency was too much to handle for Bush? All of a sudden we make excuses for presidents who don't wet our whistle? Is this latest depiction of Obama as a deity meant to be a downgrade or pivot from the left's messianic delusions of grandeur?
Newsweak...um..."Newsweek cover Obama" and you would think he was the god of that magazine. PSST! maybe they're trying to save face.
Here's a little Newsflash for NewsWEAK (now that we don't have to answer to Google for the rest of this post)....are you ready?.....brace yourselves, because I don't want to cause any aneurysms over there.....every presidency is too much for one person to handle!
That's why they get to have entire administrations, with a Vice President, and a cabinet, and a chief-of-staff with advisors, and cool logos, and undersecretaries, and deputies, and they ALL have to work together because those 3,000 person $200,000,000.00/day trips to India aren't going to coordinate themselves!
I've got a great investigative story to pitch to them for their next issue. Its perfect for their style of hard-hitting journalism. It goes something like this:
Why a burning fireplace may no longer be the best place to store gasoline.
I REALLY want to know who brokered the deal to sell that rag for A DOLLAR. Seriously, because I've got some ice to sell to eskimos, and anyone who can sell something at a price that is 100% of what its actually worth is someone I want working for me.
If it really is true that Obama inspires the revelation that "the modern presidency may be too much for one person to handle" then we must all be ghosts, because I was totally unaware that he was the last person on earth.Add a comment
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she would not want to submit to an airport security pat-down, one of the new "enhanced" measures instituted by the Transportation Safety Administration ahead of the holiday season to screen airline passengers.
"Not if I could avoid it. No, I mean, who would?" Clinton said during an interview aired on Sunday's "Face the Nation."
Shhh! Nobody tell her the alternative...

I debated whether I wanted this any attention. But I know I have a lot of pro-life friends out there that might want to vote at birthornot.com
Basically a couple is putting to an internet vote whether or not they should abort their child. I don't know the motivation, but as of this writing abortion is winning.
I haven't voted yet, because I don't know if I really want to be another log on these a-holes fire. I might, to counter the jerks evil enough to tip it over to "abort."
Part of me hopes this is some sort of pro-life stunt, to make a point this country hates abortion. The current tally doesn't make it look that way though.
Voting ends December 7.
When the post was initially written Friday evening life was winning by A LOT, something to the tune of 80-20. So a lot of people who get jollies off of voting for infanticide have had a very busy weekend.Add a comment
Incoming Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said incoming Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is "known to cry."
"You know what? He is known to cry. He cries sometimes when we're having a debate on bills. If I cry, it's about the personal loss of a friend or something like that. But when it comes to politics — no, I don't cry. I would never think of crying about any loss of an office, because that's always a possibility, and if you're professional, then you deal with it professionally," Pelosi (D-Calif.) told the New York Times magazine.
Wow...That, and the rest of the article is almost worse than having the nerve to cry. Maybe she can't cry because she is a stone cold biotch who doesn't have an emotional connection to the turmoil our country is embroiled in.
Or maybe its because there is a film of plastic that resides beneath her skin and it has managed to seal her tear ducts shut.
In all seriousness I would rather have a Speaker of the House that sheds tears and lives in reality than spend one more day having to listen to any looney toon feed us loads of turd stew chocked full of vitamins B, F, and D, and then tell us we need to let them shove it down our throats so we can find out what it is AFTER its poisoning us.
Lets make the soon-to-be former Speaker harpy-I mean...happy, lets take some stimulus money and build a dam around Boehner's office.
Better yet, lets pay for it with the money taxpayers will be saving not having to pay for her private jet anymore. Either way, I don't care, lets just be done with this issue already so Nancy can stop being a sore loser and go back to being just a loser.
Here's one last gem from the article
"I was the first woman speaker. It didn't get that much play. And I'm not a publicity seeker..."
Oh man, I can't argue with that because she's totally telling the truth there...
By the way, I didn't call her a b**ch, I said "biotch," and rappers use that word in their lyrics. That's right, like women who pose nude in Playboy, I was being artistic. You're welcome.Add a comment
