Remembering Thanksgiving

The day before Thanksgiving, I wrote about the things which I am thankful for. On Thanksgiving day, my family went around the table and said a short prayer thanking God for what he has given us. Some mentioned good health. Others mentioned being together a s a family. I said that I was thankful for our great country and those who are protecting it.

These are the types of prayers that recognize what the holiday is truly about. These are the types of prayers which express genuine gratitude for the things God has done for us.

But, how do others choose to remember thanksgiving. How do others express gratitude? What kind of prayers do they offer?

Let's take a look at one of my favorite sites to pick on...The Huffington Post. For Thanksgiving, one of the regular contributors wrote a piece which epitomizes the mindset of those who can't stop hating for even one day. The author's name is Tony Hendra. Here is a portion of what he wrote:

I give thanks O Lord for Dick Cheney's Heart, that brave organ which has done its darn-tootin' best on four separate occasions to do what we can only dream about.

O Lord, give Dick Cheney's Heart, Our Sacred Secret Weapon, the strength to try one more time! For greater love hath no heart than that it lay down its life to rid the planet of its Number One Human Tumor.

I give Thee thanks for the possibility - at long last - that this axis of incompetent evil is OVER. That a crime family who gave us two disastrous Presidencies in the space of a decade might finally be bound for the oblivion it so richly deserves. For Thou knowest Lord in Thy infinite wisdom that with truly evil stupid people - the Nazis spring to mind - it always takes TWO defeats to finally bring them to their knees. So let it be with Bushdom.

Let's see...wishing death upon Dick Cheney? Check. Accusing Cheney of destroying the world? Check. Accusing Bush of being a career criminal? Check. Comparing the Bush Administration to Nazis? Check.

This is really nothing new. Cindy Sheehan wrote a book about her desire to go back in time and murder George Bush as an infant. A European filmmaker made a movie about the President's assassination. Liberals take to the blogs, all the time, to call for the execution of Bush Administration officials.

Being so filled with hate that they actually fantasize about the death of Republicans, is just par for the course. But, to center your thanksgiving celebration around a desire to See Dick Cheney dead...that's just sick.

But, that is what you get with Liberals. They have nothing to be thankful for.

In their world:

1. America is creating all of the world's problems by invading soverign countries, committing genocide, robbing poor countries of their resources, etc.

2. America is destroying the planet with our manufacturing plants and our SUVs, and we refuse to acknowledge the proven science behind the fact that we are causing Global Warming.

3. America is committing war crimes by murdering innocent civilians in cold blood in a war which we started to get our hands on foreign oil supplies.

4. America treats minorities as third-class citizens, taking away any chance that they have to succeed.

5. America treats Islamic freedom fighters as if they were an actual threat to us.

6. America holds an iron fist over any nation who tries to acquire nuclear technology in order to maintain its tyrannical rule over the earth.

7. America routinely tortures innocent prisoners of war to within an inch of their lives without even considering the facts of the case, and without acknowledging the fact that torture has never worked at any time in any situation…ever.

8. American citizens are living under the rule of “Big Brother.” The Government taps all of our phones, reads transcripts of our very personal conversations, in an attempt to use the information, one day, as leverage against us, or to just keep us in check by fear of their power.

9. The current American government hates the poor. It denies them access to basic health care, refuses to pay them a liveable wage, and lets them drown when their cities become flooded. While it seeks to destroy the poor and the middle class, it simultaneously tries to make the evil, rich, white men, who control Corporate America, even richer by giving them huge tax cuts.

10. Ordinary Americans can not even hold our Government officials accountable for any of these actions because we will be labeled "unpatriotic." Or worse, King Bush will use the Patriot Act to charge us with treason and have us executed.

This is the world that they see themselves living in. What would they have to be thankful for?
