Despite the fact that America faces internal threats from progressives who want to take away our constitutional freedoms, and threats from radical Islamic terrorists who would have us blown up into little pieces and scattered around the neighborhood there is no need to fear, because the United States is still the strongest and most free country God has ever created in this earth.

We have so much to be thankful for not the least of which is that the New York Jets will not be playing today so the team’s fans will not have to suffer the indignity of another butt fumble.

Therefore as Thanksgiving is tomorrow, I would be remiss in not wishing all of my readers a joyous holiday filled with love of family and friends, good food, and good football.  Please don’t let the day go by without thanking the God of your choice for the freedom and bounty.  And please pray for the health and safety of our heroes fighting overseas and for the police, firemen, and other first responders who risk their butts to save yours.

And most importantly:

From My Family To Yours….

Have A Very Happy Thanksgiving!
