Why I am Thankful.



This is going to seem remarkably petty and for many misguided to say the least but the thing I am most thankful for when you eliminate the current good health and safety of my family is that I do not have to utter the words “President Romney”.  If I did, it would be in the form of “We sure dodged a bullet not having a…” or  if he won, “That damn pompous bastard (insert that name here) is a complete idiot.” Yeah, I know millions on the right feel far different but I simply do not give a damn.

In fact, I am sorely tempted to call certain members of my family and gloat knowing that several might be even now preparing their Doomsday redoubts since to varying degrees they believed Obama’s reelection would mean the end of the world. But of course, the better angels of nature will stop me from doing anything like that. I will content myself with a good meal and afterwards several beers as my family and I watch some football and later, assorted movies.

I send out my sincerest best wishes to everyone, both on the left and right of the political spectrum realizing that our problems will not be solved from strictly Democratic or Republican ideas but from a combination of both. My purely American prayer is that the opposition party comes to their senses and actually compromises for the betterment of the country and not act like a petulant and moronic child.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. And yes, I am SO HAPPY that the election turned to the democrats rather than the rapepublicans as I feared it might. I am unduly influenced by all the teabaggers around me I think but it's good to know the country isn't as batshit crazy as all of that!!! :)

Yes, it would taste sour on the tongue if had to say President Romney. A chill up my spine.

Beach Bum said...

Akelamalu: Thanks! Recovering from all that turkey even now.

Mike: Thanks buddy!

Life As I Know It: Like I mentioned I have the half-assed idea about calling my right-wing kinfolk but truthfully I am just too lazy.

Jerry: Thanks buddy!

Rose: Yeah, it would have been worse than saying zombie apocalypse.

Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!

I don't watch football, but we do watch the movie "Planes, Trains and Automobiles" for Thanksgiving every year. It's to Thanksgiving what "It's a Wonderful Life" is to Christmas.

Bah, and humbug. I was stuck rooting for a Tony Romo comeback so my stupid fantasy league team can actually win a damn game. Thanksgiving go to hell.

Ole corn cob, as we called him, finally met his doom!

You know there is a down-side to Romney not becoming president... Holy Mormon Underwear (aka: Temple Garments) are allegedly able to protect the wearer, including but not limited to, stopping bullets! We taxpayers (excluding the top 2%) would have saved a bundle on Secret Service protection.
