Thanksgiving Dinner Origins

Posted in Food & Drink, Society on November 23rd, 2016

In America, we’re about ready for Thanksgiving, our particular riff on the age-old harvest festival. Tomorrow the majority of us will be enjoying some variety of variants of our Thanksgiving dinner. Hopefully, most of us will enjoy our feasts and the company, be it family, friends, or both, that we are surrounded by while doing so.

One thing though – Thanksgiving, despite America’s spin upon it, is still at its heart a harvest celebration. Hence, I believe that we should spare a moment or more to consider our Thanksgiving dinner’s origin. And by that I do not mean the well-known legendry of Thanksgiving or the murkier and more complex history thereof; No, I mean the origins of the delicious food upon our tables.

Spare some time this Thanksgiving to think about and be grateful for the efforts of all those “rural folk” – the farmers, ranchers, and such along with the men and women who get those crops from the farms across the land to the stores you buy it at.

Yeah, it would be good and very likely pleasant to pause and consider the farm workers and such in those so easily dismissible fly-over districts, counties, and states. Instead of repeating the urbanites’ and suburanites’ mistake of considering the America’s rural population as forgettable but unforgivable, deplorable, uneducated hicks and rubes, consider that there’s a reason why they make up the heartland of America.

Thanksgiving  hate rants in 3...2...1...Thanksgiving Hate Rants In 3…2…1…

In America, it’s almost Thanksgiving. As such, we’re likely to be inundated with anti-Thanksgiving, anti-White, and anti-American rantings online by the Liberals and Progressives. Hence, I’ve decided to “Trump” their expected whining, ranting, and raving with a picture of a very beautiful White – blonde even – woman in Native American garb.

I figure that, if they’re going to bitch, I might as well see how many of their “triggers” I can pull in the same post. 😉

#NotMyPresident

Posted in 2016 Election, Politics on November 20th, 2016

It’s all too easy for Americans to mock, malign, lambast, lampoon, and otherwise ridicule the Liberals and Progressives as the protest, riot, and either scurry around in attempt to circumvent democracy or just cry, twitch, and shake in their “safe spaces.” Truly, it just too easy to do so. They do, after all. deserve such treatment by Americans. Sadly however, it is too easy and, as such, it’s but a passing pleasure that soon grows stale.

Especially interesting and of note are those losers who have embraced the #NotMyPresident twitter hashtagery and its real world pseudo-equivalent. They at least, if you look at it in a certain way, have something akin to a point. Mr. Trump isn’t and hopefully to my mind will never be their President. The Gods willing, he is and will remain our President.

And why not? For eight years – and it’s not quite over yet – the American people have been saddled with Obama, who very much wasn’t and isn’t our President. From the miscegenation of his first campaign to be the Democrats’ nominee for POTUS to this very day, the vast bulk of his rhetoric has proven this sad fact. Almost everything Obama has ever said was actively against us or, at best, dismissive of us, our beliefs, and our long-held and cherished culture.

So no, Obama wasn’t our President and Trump won’t be their President. In this, if in almost nothing else, these puling Liberals have a point – a point a counsel each and every American to hammer home into their minds.
