Thank Them Anyway — Or, Maybe Not

This Thursday you might be going to your daughters’, mothers’, grandmothers’ or other relatives’ homes to celebrate and remember we still have a country. You may luck out and have conservatives for the aforementioned kin, or you may be like me, and not be so lucky as to have conservative close relatives  In such case, you may wish to duck (no pun intended) as you walk through the door and hear the previously named relatives shout, “The old turkey has arrived.”  You have to guard against any chance the dinner guests do not end up saying “Thanks,” over your carcass … foul or fowl.

To assist in warding off their slings and arrows and general bull butter slung or bounced your way, access the following.

Repatriates and Repartees

Lastly, do not let them stuff you with anything except turkey, ham and all the trimmings and traditional deserts. And show them your proud Republican buttocks leaving in haste, should things get too rough:

    I sense a feeling on the part of the writer that he hast a feeling of guilt by not being a part of the
    festive “progressive” group( excuse the typo! I meant “regressive”). If he is truly bothered by this situation and doesn’t have a group of like-minded friends with whom he could seek “discernment” with {a favorite word of a learned mentor), he might want to go spend the day serving others at a communal dinner or foodbank. After all ,this American “Thanksgiving thing” is just another one of those “pesky” Christian traditions that radical refugees from England imposed upon themslves and others.

    The next thing youll be telling me that those same radicals meant to establish a Judeo-Christian nation here, just because they ackowlegded the Creator some six or seven times in a document called “the Mayflower Compact”, This was the first written set of rules and laws written for the new colony. Take heart, once we progressives attain our true goals, we will eliminate such foolishness!

    With regard to those socialist deviates who are stuffing themselves with a gargantuan meal on this day, paid for by exploiting the less-fortunate, next year will bring changes! They may have to pay for their food with another currency, food stamps.

    They wanted change!!
