Giving Thanks: A National Tradition

Giving Thanks: A National Tradition

As we, once again, approach this national day of “thanksgiving” I thought it necessary to reflect upon our nation’s long history of acknowledging and giving thanks to Almighty God. On October 3, 1789 George Washington issued the nation’s first presidential proclamation in which he called the nation to set aside a day for giving thanks to that “great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be….”

OWS Weekend Update on the Chaos

OWS Weekend Update on the Chaos

If the Marxists in the Occupy Wall Street movement can behave for 12 hours or so, maybe we can do one update for all of today of their childish, anti-American, fascist, disgusting behavior. Let’s give it a try. We’ll learn about the HAZMAT team called in to haul away 200 pounds of human feces neare one Occupest haven, as well as watch Marxist swarm private businesses and attempt to disrupt their lawful operations. Finally, we’ll see Occupests letting it all hang out in New York.

Symbiosis is the living together in more or less intimate association or close union of two dissimilar organisms as in parasitism. What we are witnessing today is symbiosis on steroids wherein the parasite isn’t merely along for the ride but instead demands the driver’s seat. America has taken such a bizarre turn that oxymorons are the only things that make sense any more.

Assimilation: Is it time for another time out?

Assimilation: Is it time for another time out?

Millions of Muslims are seeking to immigrate to America. Islam is a civilization that has never accepted Christianity equally, and many seek Shariah Law that would expunge Christianity entirely. With this in mind, don’t you think we should solve the problem of their assimilation into our culture and language before we bring in millions more into this country? Or to put it another way, is it wise to bring in millions more into our country at such a time?
