Thread Name: BS: Happy Thanksgiving America!
Subject: RE: BS: Happy Thanksgiving America!
DougR--no politicizing Thanksgiving? Don't make me laugh. Thanksgiving has become another nationalist propaganda day to promote the US military. Remember your Bushie boy's surprise visit to Baghdad?

Like I said, once Mom is gone, I'm free of this phony nationalist crap for a 4 day weekend. Thanksgiving is the phoniest of phony nationalist holidays, a slap in the face to the indigenous peoples of the entire continent, and just another pathetic excuse for certain industries to go into capitalist overdrive.

Being the most arrogant, belligerent, hostile imperial nation on the planet isn't exactly something to brag about, which is why the lot of you choose to remain in denial about for the sake of phony holiday harmony.

Fuck that shit.
