"Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever."
How was your Thanksgiving? Mine was great. I did all the cooking and for the first time learned how to make my own gravy which is much superior than the canned gravy in the stores. We sat around and enjoyed the food. Then watched the tube while drinking lots of beer. All in all a very pleasant Thanksgiving. However, there is a group for whom Thanksgiving was absolutely MISERABLE this year...the KOmmies (and probably DUmmies). Yes, the KOmmies just couldn't get politics out of their heads for the holiday. For that reason it has ruined their holiday as you can see in this KOmmie THREAD miserably titled, "Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever." So let us now watch the KOmmies complain about their miserable Thanksgivings in Bolshevik Red while the commentary of your humble correspondent, already hungry for another turkey dinner, is in the [brackets]:
Worst. Thanksgiving. Ever.
[Best. Thanksgiving. Ever.]
Yeah, I ate some turkey. I saw some relatives. My family is pretty healthy. But something just wasn't right this year, and apparently I'm not the only one.
[The USA is WINNING in Iraq. This makes it hard for KOmmie crowbar317 to digest his turkey.]
Usually, when the holidays come around I get excited. I get up early and call people I haven't spoken to in a while. I tend to smile and laugh a bit more. I feel like I am on vacation at home.
[Especially when a Democrat is in the White House.]
This year I had no such feeling. I slept until Noon on Thanksgiving day and ate a turkey sandwich in silence around 3pm. I couldn't even get into my precious football.
[I guess just having a lousy turkey sandwich for Thanksgiving would make me miserable too.]
At first, I thought I was just in a depressive state, but then I made my once enjoyable now obligitory phone calls, and everyone else was suffering the same malaise.
[Were they also eating just turkey sandwiches instead of complete dinners?]
People were tired and in crappy moods. When I asked how their day had gone, the best I could get was "okay" or "alright." Everyone tried to put a positive spin on things, but the facade was obvious.
Now I'm no expert, but I can't help but think that the current state of the nation played some part in this. When some 70% of the people believe that their country is on the wrong track, it takes more than some turkey and pumpkin to make them feel better.
[A booming economy and military success in Iraq makes the KOmmies think we are on the wrong track.]
So if you and yours had a crappy Thanksgiving this year, vent it out right here. You will not be judged by the fowlness of your mood.
[My fowl was quite tasty.]
[Including the fact of eating just a turkey sandwich for Thanksgiving.]
Could it be that the effect of bread and circuses has worn off? And another invasion or more foreclosures will not suffice to calm the masses?
[Hee! Hee! If this KOmmie thinks his Thanksgiving was horrible this year, wait until Thanksgiving 2008 following the election. Hee! Hee!]
Alec Baldwin posted this yesterday over at Huffpost:
Thanksgiving was...peaceful. In all of my adult life, I have rarely seen Americans so in need of a vacation, a break, a place to go that is safe and comfortable. I have rarely seen Americans rush toward the Thanksgiving weekend with such need and commitment. This country is coming apart. And people are in a lot of pain about that. Eight years of these lunatics raping everything they see has been exhausting. Americans are exhausted. Our system is breaking down, slowly, and people are, when they get honest about it, frightened about what that means, short and long term. Iraq is a mess and they botched that so badly. Now, some say Iran is next. How can that be?
[The only thing coming apart is Alec Baldwin. And speaking of lunatics...]
Bush has sapped the life from us.
he's made us fatigued by rage.
We are rage-fatigued.
We have come to accept the lowest common denominator on his watch.
We have gone backwards in almost every way.
Ater 7 years of madness, we are weary.
[Your Thanksgiving was ruined? Bush's fault!]
Thanksgiving 2004 was worse. Bush was re-elected. Four more god-damn awful years of the stupid SOB.
[And Thanksgiving 2008 will be even worse for you than Thanksgiving 2004.]
As a vegan, I also have the "carcass in the middle of the table" thing to cope with.
[I love to see vegans get upset by good wholesome meat!]
Eh, I had a good Thanksgiving, but frankly am not inclined to celebrate Christmas, in any way, shape or form. After so many years of Bill O'Reilly's annual claptrap of the "War on Christmas" I am getting just a little grinch-like as a committed secularist.
[Amazing how much power you allow Bill O'Reilly to have over you.]
Spent Thanksgiving with my parents. (I'm in my 40s.) Seeing my father brings up a lot of bad memories of how he treated me when I was a kid. So I am surly toward him, even though he's old and harmless now. I need to move on. I know it. And preferably while he's still around. But I just don't seem to be able to. Any advice?
[Get over yourself.]
Sometimes when I think it's all going to go to hell, I also think gun would be a good thing to have.
[Here's a great Thanksgiving guest to have...NOT!]
It was one day closer to the end of the Bush Administration. Truly joyous!
[And one day closer to the beginning of the Romney Administration. Truly joyous!]
