    “Like other holidays, including Christmas and Columbus Day, Thanksgiving is not based on historical accuracy, but rather on the importance and prevalence of maintaining a consumer culture”, Pewewardy, who is a member of both the Comanche and Kiowa tribes, said on Tuesday.

    Saying that Thanksgiving is based on the importance and prevalence of maintaining a consumer culture, is a big, unsupported assertion. It appears to be his heavily biased opinion.

    In 1621 colonists in New England gave communal thanks and praise to God for his abundant mercies and blessings. They were aware that they could not have survived their first year without the help of God. Help came through the Indians.

    This communal thanks became a tradition. In 1863 Thanksgiving Day was proclaimed a legal holiday. We ask that each person’s gratitude to God may bear fruit in loving service to neighbors.

    That is what Thanksgiving is about Pewewardy, thanks to our ancestors, yours and mine, and an inspiration to continue loving service to our neighbors.

    NBC is providing coverage to help start more fires and riots across the country.

    We have become a Third World country, just like the Muslims that go nuts when an infidel is accused of damaging or disrespecting their "bible," even though there is no evidence to support, or the accusation is false does not matter.

    Facts do not matter to those who have been given government handouts and entitlements. They just want more to be fair. Thus, they will help themselves by burning and looting and complaining there is no justice for any reason that their warped and twisted minds see.

    It is a bad idea to teach people from birth that the "system" is against them, while they take advantage of "black privilege" to take what they want and complain that what they are getting for free is not enough!

    They want chaos and destruction. Is that justice to them?

    Justice to me would be bringing to justice the race baiters for their crimes against their people and the rule of law. When will that happen?

    Obama’s controversial plan has been met with mixed reviews, but among those who support the order is Boston’s own Cardinal Sean O’Malley.

    Why would someone like Cardinal Sean O'Malley be a scofflaw? In all my readings of the bible Jesus obeyed the law and told others to obey the law. What does Cardinal Sean O'Malley say to those who wait in line and obey our immigration laws? Does he ask them why they are such dummies to actually believe that laws are to be obeyed?

    This kind of action is puzzling to me. I can understand compassion for those in danger of being deported, but supporting those who jump the line and rewarding them while ignoring the law abiders is disturbing.

    I would hate to think that our bishops and cardinals are corrupt. What kind of examples are they showing?

    Here’s a pop quiz. Which president once said, "Illegal immigrants in considerable numbers have become productive members of our society and are a basic part of our work force”?

    I remember that well. I also remember that a very important part of Reagan's argument was that we would secure our borders and NOT continue to let in another 30 million illegal immigrants. Promises were made to stop the influx of illegals to secure the legislation; promises to secure our borders were NOT kept because of lack of funding and lack of interest once the amnesty legislation was passed.

    The writer of this piece also seems to blur the distinction between legal immigrants and illegal aliens.

    “We have to act with more urgency” on climate change, President Barack Obama said in his state of the union address this year. Now he has concrete results to show.

    President Obama is correct that we have to act with more urgency. However the urgency is to settle the science because it is FAR from settled. But you cannot have the fox guarding the chicken house. The USA must put together a science panel with NO vested interest in man made global warming. The numbers of such scientists are legion.

    Just because we have those at the trough filled by billions of dollars per year to "prove" that global warming is being caused by mankind, does not mean that is correct. Do we even have global warming or are we on the cusp of global cooling?

    President Obama said once again that he won't wait on Congress to start making changes to America's immigration system.

    The "army" of illegal aliens has been here for decades. There is no urgency to deal with them. There IS urgency in securing our borders to stop the influx that has been continuing since 1988 or earlier.

    Common sense says to stop the leak, confirm that has occurred. In the past the Democrats have promised to stop the leak but they do nothing, or they pass a law to stop the leak and then defund it, because they want open borders.

    Stop the leak; deport illegal aliens who are convicted criminals (30% of inmates currently in jail).

    Then take the time necessary to develop a policy to deal in a fair way with the illegal immigrants currently in our country; be fair to those who waited in line to gain their citizenship in a legal manner.

    Why is this so difficult for our lawmakers? It is what fair minded people want, I would think.

    Polls had shown Warner, a popular former governor who'd been endorsed by his Republican predecessor, ex-Sen. John Warner, with a hefty lead. But Gillespie led Warner for much of the night as returns trickled in Tuesday -- and ultimately ended up trailing by less than one percentage point.

    Warner has already done a lot of damage to Virginia voters with his lock step support of Obama, but maybe the Republican majority in the Senate will neutralize Mark Warner.

    Mark certainly took advantage of the turncoat liberal ex-Sen. John Warner. I was glad to see him retire. Still surprised that so many Virginians would vote for Mark Warner, another corrupt disciple of President Obama and Harry Reid.

    They took no measures like reducing the tax burden on small businesses, reducing the regulatory burden ($$s, time, paperwork) on businesses, and taking other measures to ensure that businesses prosper enough to pay higher wages.

    The socialists have no concept of profit, loss, risks, and elementary economics of small businesses. They base their action on ignorance, jealousy, and basic mean spiritedness of their ilk. They could care less about the people who will lose their jobs, or the businesses that go belly up.

    The net result most likely will be a dampening of the local economy owing to fewer jobs and higher prices. Of course they will blame "greedy" businesses.

This is a disappointing reflection on NASA's apparent lack of scientific objectivity. There is no scientific basis for claiming that carbon dioxide is driving man-caused climate change.

    It is likely that the mission will show that CO2 has little or nothing to do with climate change caused by mankind.

    We hope that the mission is successful in lending a ray of light on the role of carbon dioxide and its cycle in the atmosphere. We do not need a copy of the final report before the mission is underway.

  • "Bush administration kicked a ‘hornets’ nest’ in Iraq"

    Governor Chafee said Wednesday that the George W. Bush administration kicked “a hornets’ nest” with its 2003 invasion of Iraq, an act that unleashed sectarian divisions among Iraqis that are playing out today as militants continue to wrest control of territory from the faltering government of Nouri al-Maliki.

    Governor Chafee also could have said that the Steelers would have won the Super Bowl last year if ... [you fill in the blanks].

    If "ifs and buts" were "peanuts and nuts" what a party we would have!

    The blame game will never end for the Democrats.

  • The VA Sacrificed Vets for Solar Panels

    The VA Scandal began at the Phoenix VA Health Care System where administrators earned promotions and bonuses by shunting patients who needed treatment into fake waiting lists.

    Will the VA now be spending its money on the health problems brought in by the hordes of young illegal immigrants flooding this country?

    If military bases are being used to house, clothe, feed, and control epidemics of TB, scabies, and other diseases being brought in, will they take away from the VA budget?

  • John Kerry launches global effort to save world´s oceans ´under siege´

    The US secretary of state, John Kerry, launched a new global effort on Wednesday to save oceans “under siege” from over-fishing, plastic pollution and climate change

    Like "Baghdad Bob" Kerry is talking about the ocean of water "problem" instead of the ocean of illegal immigrants taking over our country, while he ignores the chaos in the middle east.

    I guess worrying about "global warming" is the most important thing the United States Department of State has on their agenda.

  • Bowe Bergdahl Is All of Us

    ‘Was He Worth It?” blared the cover of Time magazine, as if that should be the question Americans ask in light of the release of Bowe Bergdahl after five years of brutal captivity by the Taliban.

    No, the question we should be asking is a version of the one Pope Francis made famous in a different context: “Who Are We To Judge?”

    Did he really experience "brutal" captivity?"

    Was he worth 14 lives lost attempting to rescue him?

    Where was the press during those five years?

    Should we depend upon the MSM and White House for information, or his colleagues and those with direct knowledge?

    It is difficult to judge anything with the lack of information, and the smoke and fog of spin. And, it is difficult to judge with no real source of information on what happened, similar to Benghazi and other scandals.

    So, we wait.

  • Rep. King: Paul, Cruz Will Use Cantor Loss to ‘Stop Gov’t from Functioning’

    “My concern is a lot of things are going to be dead and pushed aside,” King said. “I’m concerned that the Ted Cruz supporters, the Rand Paul supporters, are going to use this as an excuse to basically stop the government from functioning. Thank god there’s no debt ceiling bill coming up. Thank god there’s no way to shut the government down in the next few months, because I think we’ll get bogged down in those side issues. I think we’re going to see basically the status quo over in the next six months.”

    It appears to me that King is out of touch with the majority of the American people he is supposed to represent.

    Does King realize that a "lot of things" need to be dead and pushed aside, especially because they are destroying our culture, our constitutional form of government, and our economy?

    We recommend that Mr. King take a time out to reflect on his lack of common sense, and to reflect of what the people who elected him to office want him to do. He appears to be an out-of-touch establishment Republican.

    Get out of D. C. for awhile Mr. King; talk to your constituents, not those giving you the big money, but the "little people" like the masses of ignored veterans, jobless, hopeless, worried formerly middle class voters.

    “I am deeply disappointed by this news and the uncertainty it creates at a time when 400,000 Virginians are waiting for access to quality health care, especially those in Southwest Virginia,” Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in a statement.

    This is a stunning lie by Gov. Terry McAuliffe!

    He also said that he would NEVER hold the budget for the State of Virginia hostage to Obamacare!

  • Michael Savage: Charles Krauthammer is “overrated”, people “confuse his dour looks for intelligence”

    "Charles “Sauerkraut” of Fox News– a man I’ve not been impressed with– I think he’s way overrated. Because of his sad demeanor, people think he’s intelligent. They confuse his dour looks for intelligence. They think somehow if you’re depressed-looking, you’re smart. "

    Savage has a point here. Krauthammer often shows common sense in his analyses, but once in awhile he makes no sense at all. Maybe he is fundamentally unhappy and depressed. Thus explaining his outlier comments, and Savage's comments.

  • Who’d a-thunk it? Following $15 per hour minimum wage in SeaTac

    Last week I blogged about SeaTac employers who have responded to the new $15 minimum wage law by reducing or eliminating the benefits workers receive. Employees earning the new wage say they have lost benefits such as 401k, paid holidays, paid vacation, free food, free parking and overtime hours. As one SeaTac worker put it, “It sounds good, but it’s not good.”

    The pencil neck liberals and leftists who imposed the wage failed to help businesses prosper by reducing the tax and regulation burdens. Instead they stupidly assume that the businesses can simply pay more out of their obscene profits.

    The politicians who impose increased wages should be required to pass Economics 101, instead of helping the poor get poorer. But, of course, the leftists are excused because they have "good intentions."

  • WH petition to free Marine Tahmooressi from Mexico prison reaches 100K online signatures

    Tahmooressi said he accidentally crossed the border and immediately told Mexican authorities that he had three guns in his possession and that he was unable to make a U-turn.

    He said he was handcuffed and taken to prison and that his treatment worsened when he tried to escape.

    Why is not the United States treating people who cross the border illegally in a similar fashion, instead of dropping them off at a bus stop in Arizona? Why does the United States permit deplorable treatment of its citizens in Mexico, while doing quite the opposite to Mexicans who jump the line and enter our country?

  • Backlash over $15 wage plan (& Seattle's socialist Kshama Sawant)

    "They're not interested in income equality," Boze said. "They're interested in their redistributionist policies to combat the popularity in the Seattle area of the open socialist - closeted communist - Kshama Sawant."

    Do you suppose the Kshama Sawant took any action to pay for the increase in wages? Did she recommend lower taxes on businesses? Did she recommend lessening the government regulation and paperwork load on businesses? Did she recommend anything to help affected businesses prosper?

    Or is she the typical low information leftist who believes that businesses make too much money and can easily afford to pay more for less? Did she pass Economics 101?
