Happy Privilege and Excess Day!
« on: November 28, 2013, 03:58:51 pm »
Where the middle class eats to the point of getting sick...
the people who live from paycheck to paycheck are actually grateful for the day to work...
and the entitled put on a show of complaining about how those poor workers are being exploited by working on Thanksgiving, then rush out the door for their Black "Thursday" sale so they can be rude assholes to every human being that isn't themselves.  Presumably.

Who knows what the rich are doing today?

So what has society demanded that you be arbitrarily thankful for? :3

(This has to be the cheeriest cynicism I've ever displayed, hahaha)

I am thankful that bitcoins were briefly worth over $1,200 each today.

I had lasagna today.  A coupla days ago, I had rabbit for the first time.  I'm thankful my family and friends are alive (Well, what's left of them).

It's cool.

My privilege and excess day lacked mashed potatoes. This is the worst day ever. I mean, it's just not right. I can't think of anything worse than eating turkey, stuffing, vegetables, and no mashed potatoes...

FML!

ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, stuffing... and pumpkin pie and egg nog for dessert.
There is light and darkness in the world, to be sure.  However, there's no harm to be had in walking in the shade or shadows.

I am thankful for the food I got.

And it isn't really arbitrary but I wrote a small thing that I really am thankful for and I'm not just pandering:

I am grateful for the Navajo code talkers. Who helped make an unbreakable military code during World War 2 that was never cracked by the enemy.

I am also grateful for the Cherokee, Choctaw (who developed the World War 1 code talking that also went uncracked), Lakota, Meskwaki, and Comanche code talkers.

I am grateful for all of the Native Americans who are the literal unsung heroes of many wars, stretching back to the Revolutionary War.

As well as the civilians who helped the fledgling Americans even though the Americans paid them back with disease and death and theft.

I'm not American, but I am thankful for how incredibly supportive my family has been for me over the last five years. And I am thankful for a best friend who is one of the kindest, most understanding people I've ever known.
I once had a nightmare about chickens pecking me to death on my driveway. I told my sister to save herself.

This is the #1 nightmare.

I'm thankful that my wife and I get to celebrate together, and that we also get to celebrate William Blake's birthday on the same day.

I am thankful that we do not have the crazy BLACK FRIDAY that is in USA. I could go and do my shopping pretty quickly and the lines were almost non-existant.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I'm grateful naps aren't taxed.
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.
