If anyone asks, I’m off the grid for the Thanksgiving weekend. Not that I’ve been on the grid that much lately due to work “opportunities” and other such poppy-cock. With six-ish weeks until Iowa, I’m beginning to get some fire in the belly. And all this time, I thought it was an ulcer from work.
Irregardless, this holiday is for giving thanks for the bounty God has bestowed on us, including a nation like no other in the course of human history. While there may be a buffoon currently at the helm, give thanks for him, too, because he is a reminder of our freedoms. Freedom of speech. Freedom to worship how we choose. Freedom to protect ourselves. Freedom to live where we want and do what we want to do, marry (or not) whom we choose, have as many children as we want. Freedom to limit him to one term.
Pray for his strength to hold out, because he has single-handed woken the sleeping giant of regular work-a-day Americans to fight against tyranny and government-overreach.
America is still the shining beacon on the hill, no matter who or what tries to tarnish it.
Be like George. Be grateful and seek direction for the coming months as we battle for America.
