With Thanksgiving week upon us, we’re all supposed to be thankful for stuff.? Which I guess is fine.? My last few Thanksgivings haven’t had much on that front, but this year is different, so here goes.

I’m thankful that my country is no longer ruled by a bunch of incompetent ideologue lunatics obsessed with sex organs, who destroyed the country so thoroughly none of us can even predict when we’ll emerge from the catastrophe.? That’s a big one!

I’m thankful that Lebron James is a Cavalier, which means that I get to watch the greatest athlete on the planet multiple times a week on my TV.? I’ve been thankful for this for some time, and expect it to continue into next Thanksgiving, despite what Jay Z might think.

I’m thankful that I never gave up on life, despite having ample reason and opportunity to do so, thankful that I’ve got a future to look forward to, and that I’m writing for this very awesome blog, with most awesome co-bloggers, and we’re kicking some serious ass already.

And I’m thankful to be alive to witness the presidency of Barack Obama, to have contributed to his election in whatever small way, able to appreciate its importance to the history of my country.? I am still in awe of it.

And now, for some Thanksgiving entertainment.

  • I guess I'll add my thoughts here instead of start a new thread. I'll be busy getting ready for a KY trip Wednesday morning and probably won't post or comment much starting tomorrow.

    There are more things for me to be thankful for than not. I have a great family. The best kids ever. A wife that puts up with me despite many reasons not to. A great many – and growing number – of friends. I'm a lucky man all around.

    In response to this post, I'm also thankful that you never gave up on life and decided that your detractors be damned. The hardest roads are the ones worth walking because the experience is so deep and meaningful. You could have folded up shop long ago, but you didn't. Kudos there.

    Thanks go to everyone who has ever read anything here at PB that I've written, commented, sent words of support, or just silently shook their head in agreement. It keeps us going here.

    Despite the enormous challenges we face, I'm also thankful we have the administration and President we have now and that incompetents are no longer in control. Hope truly does spring eternal.

    Of course I'm thankful to have met the other bloggers here. They are the best of the best. I'm humbled to have them to this little site I started. It's theirs now. It's ours…and yours.

    Hopefully everyone will enjoy family and friends this week. Make some bourbon sluch if you can. Email me if you want the recipe. 😉

    you folks have a happy secular thanksgiving. being vegetarian, i'll get my tryptophan from chocolate or an intravenous injection. btw, i went to high school with the swedish chef. the guy sounded just like him and caught plenty of flack for it.

    I came over on the Crooks and Liars tip and I love your site. But Alex Ovechkin is the greatest athlete on the planet…just saying.

    I'm thankful that there are fewer days left of the American nightmare that is Nancy Pelosi, that knucklehead from Nevada, Barny Frank and that the combined weight of the stupidity of the American Left will result in its eventual, long-term demise.

    I'm especially thankful that American's with a real appreciation for freedom, individualism, self-awareness and a high level of responsibility for their own welfare, will eventually defeat the ambitions of the looney left, and return a sense of hope to the United States. America needs to be strong.

    As a business owner, I thank my customers for their continued support and sincerely wish each and everyone of them the strength to persevere during this incredible challenging economy. In that connection, I'm also thankful for the many friends that have been made in the day-to-day struggle that is the life of the small business owner. I am also thankful for the tax savings associated with Medical/Health Savings Accounts and High Deductible Health Plans.

    I'm thankful, too, that the bulb on my HD Theatre Projector has blessed me with an extended life so that I never have to venture into a regular theatre again. The Popcorn is too expensive and the youth of today have no manners, plus all live sporting events like the upcoming Winter Olympics are amazing at 111 diagonal inches of pure HD-bliss.

    Additionally, I'm thankful for my mother, RIP, who's choice gave me this opportunity to be thankful. Think about that, if you are inclined to argue that point or have considered the alternative.

    My thanks to my father, who provided a solid base from which I've always had the comfort of returning to, if needed and his fairness in all areas of life. A sense of humor and appreciation for knowledge has been his calling card.

    Thanks to my grandparents. That's something kids today probably won't have as much appreciation for, with all the divorce and disintegrating family units. My grandparents were the nucleus of the extended family, aunts and uncles, cousins and in-laws–the strongest unit of society which is more of a memory than a reality.

  • thanks for sticking around! but i don't think you've seen enough lebron james……:)

    Hey there Tim! Well I certainly am happy that you are thankful for all of those wonderful things. I don't want to draw attention away from the many items you listed but I find that in every piece you write, you always manage to mention that the Republicans have completely ruined everything and that they can't have their country back because they have utterly destroyed it, as i say in lighter terms. I'm not a Republican in any way, nooooo no no, and I agree with you that they have brought some serious disadvantages to our society. However, though we cannot ignore these obvious facts, and the damage that has been inflicted by their views, it's still odd that Democrats and other parties continue to say that the Republicans “can't have their country back”, it seems that this is simply creating more controversy and complaints. Its OUR country, the Democrats haven't taken it from anyone, we simply are in the power to express our views. I love bloggerinterrupted and I watch whenever you have videos up, they're thoroughly entertaining, only I wish you would think about what I said, not because I want you to change the way you look at things since I completely agree with you, but just so I can get your thoughts on the fact that people today think of the two parties as basically different countries, countries with set goals to destroy each other and gain the upper hand for the good of themselves… that's not going to solve any crisis…..we need to work together, don't you think? Thank you for your time!
