Subject: RE: BS: Happy Thanksgiving America!
Many of my Native American friends fast on Thanksgiving--their interpretation of what was done to them by Europeans when they came, which was largely kill them all off and steal their land.

I treat the day like I do any of the nationalist holidays. A day off of work. Sure I'll feast with family for mom's sake, but once she is gone, I'll be free for a four day weekend to do what I like every year, rather than spend it with relatives who annoy me.

That will be something to be thankful for.
