Work From Home, Send Money

The list of things you can’t talk about over Thanksgiving dinner is growing by the day - everything from Donald Trump’s tweets to  Donald Trump’s policies. The idea is to avoid anything that might trigger the social justice warriors in your family.

I’ve got a better idea, how about all you social justice warriors out there who want to save the world stay home and think about how you can do that. Better yet, try actually making the world a better place and head down to the soup kitchen to help out.  Oh wait – they don’t want you either. Apparently, just like in real life, if you have no idea what you’re doing you just get in the way of those who do.

Dawn Goodrow, director of the East Side Soup Kitchen in Saginaw, said they get an influx of one-time volunteers during the holidays.

"The only issue is that we have regular volunteers that know their way around our kitchen, know how we do the processes."

So I’m back to “just stay home,” but you could donate your Thanksgiving dinner plate-charge to the homeless shelter. They always appreciate your cash.

"The best donation is cold hard cash. We have opportunities to purchase food at a greater value than what the average person can donate," Goodrow said.

In summary then: work from home, send money. And be sure to thank the government for your opportunity to help out again this year.


SPECIAL NOTE: Please keep our Blue Dog JettieG in your prayers. Sadly, we received word last night via Weasel Zippers that she is in hospice care.

I spent several years in the local Jaycees supporting, among other things, the local food pantry. One year I asked our contact what the food pantry needed this year, that the Jaycees could work on. His reply? "Volunteers who speak Spanish, because so many of the families only speak Spanish." Since I did not know anybody in town who only spoke Spanish, and I knew a lot of people, I thought that these people were not actually neighbors, so my support of the local food pantry decreased dramatically.

And, no, I don't think that made me a bad person.

The Social Justice Warriors are just dying for any excuse to be triggered and ruin everyone’s holidays. They love making a scene. Stop inviting them.

Aren’t the holidays too “commercialized” for them anyway?? What self respecting SJW wants to sit around the table with their stupid racist family anyway?? They could be out virtue signaling something somewhere!!

I would love if a few of my SJW cousins would be there tomorrow. I would make them go ballistic
