“No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.
It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.” _ By the President: Abraham Lincoln
Went to work this morning, plenty of coffee by 11:00, computer went down at 11:30, spent half hour on hold for internet provider tech support, was told a tech would be at my office between 12:30 and 4:30, it was 5:00 when I gave up waiting and return call to tech support was a non starter.
Wanted to have a short day, that didn’t work out, start of four day weekend, start of new bottle of wine.
Wish it cleaned some of the human scum off…..forever.

Fucking eyeroll. The American middle class is tired of seeing its wealth destroyed for the sake of non-Americans. It is tired of fighting wars for a high ideal that will surely come into focus and make it all worth it if we just send more troops, wealth, and give it another 10 years. And lastly, the American middle class is bone weary of being lectured by politicians who are long on words and short on accomplishments. Hold the let us, already. Every once in awhile Americans want a little beef.
Kelly gives one of the most succinct and touching explanations about Trumps phone call to the widow of a fallen soldier. Congresswoman Wilson should be ashamed of herself….twice. Take the time and watch all of it if you can.
God bless America and the people who fight and die for her.by jeffli6 with 5 comments
