10 Highly Intelligent Questions To Ask Your Relatives This Thanksgiving

Isn’t it fascinating how the mainstream media is instructing people what to ask their family members this Thanksgiving? As usual, the questions they pose are all about promoting a specific political narrative, such as asking your hosts whether they “own guns” (with the presumption being that it’s bad if they do). To counter the complete idiocy of the mainstream media’s mind-numbing conversation starters, I’m proposing a much more useful list of eye-opening questions you might consider asking family members this Thanksgiving… or not, depending on how much you want to get along with them. One disclaimer, though: Don’t blame me … Continue reading 10 Highly Intelligent Questions To Ask Your Relatives This Thanksgiving

The True Story of Thanksgiving

Come Thanksgiving Day each year, many of us give the nod to Pilgrims and Indians and talk of making ready for a harsh first winter in the New World. But for the Christian, the deepest roots of our thanksgiving go back to the Old World, way back before the Pilgrims, to a story as old as creation, with a two-millennia-old climax. It’s a story that keeps going right on into the present and gives meaning to our little lives, even when we’re a half a globe removed from history’s ground zero at a place called Golgotha. You could call it … Continue reading The True Story of Thanksgiving

NYC ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL BANS CHRISTMAS, THANKSGIVING, PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

IMAGE CREDITS: WIKIMEDIA COM NEW YORK – Thirty-three year old Brooklyn principal Eujin Jaela Kim replaced her school’s Christmas parties with “winter celebrations,” and outlawed The Pledge of Allegiance.

We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David.” About 95 percent of students at … Continue reading NYC ELEMENTARY PRINCIPAL BANS CHRISTMAS, THANKSGIVING, PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE

Black Friday or Dawn of the Dead: What Is the Difference?

Remember that George Romero movie from the late 1970s?Dawn of the Dead? Everything about this year’sBlack Friday is even more gag-inducing than previous years. Maybe it’s just me, or maybe it’s because people do not realize how dire things really are here in America, but the fact that people continue to act like a bunch of mindless zombie sheep who would last out at each other over blu ray players and blenders makes me weep for humanity. Oh, apparently it isn’t even Black Friday anymore. They’ve stretched it out into a four-day event: (Photo: Kev Baker, Facebook) Did you know the … Continue reading Black Friday or Dawn of the Dead: What Is the Difference?

SCHLAFLY: THANK GOD FOR FOUNDING FATHERS: ‘Freest and the most prosperous country in the history of the world’

The millions of Americans who gather Thursday around a dining-room table with family members to celebrate Thanksgiving will heed George Washington’s call in October 1789 to commemorate “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God.” Ever since the days of the Pilgrims, Thanksgiving has traditionally been a time to thank God for the blessings in one’s life, particularly the blessing of the harvest. However, President Obama has failed to thank God in any of his five previous Thanksgiving addresses. Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly said she will … Continue reading SCHLAFLY: THANK GOD FOR FOUNDING FATHERS: ‘Freest and the most prosperous country in the history of the world’

What President Lincoln Taught Us About Giving Thanks

Abraham Lincoln (Wikimedia Commons ) Editor’s note: The preceding is the proclamation that set the precedent for America’s national day of Thanksgiving. During his administration, President Lincoln issued many orders similar to this. For example, on November 28, 1861, he ordered government departments closed for a local day of thanksgiving. Sarah Josepha Hale, a 74-year-old magazine editor, wrote a letter to Lincoln on September 28, 1863, urging him to have the “day of our annual Thanksgiving made a National and fixed Union Festival.” She explained, “You may have observed that, for some years past, there has been an increasing interest felt in … Continue reading What President Lincoln Taught Us About Giving Thanks

Obama vs. George Washington on Thanksgiving

Editor’s note: Chuck Norris’ weekly political column debuts each Monday in WND and is then syndicated by Creators News Service for publication elsewhere. His column in WND often runs hundreds of words longer than the subsequent release to other media. Last week, when “Fox & Friends” highlighted my column, “Neutering religious holidays,” liberals came out of the woodwork trying to defend the president’s record. So I decided to do a little research and see just how spiritual his past Thanksgiving Addresses were and compare them to our founding president, George Washington. In 2013, President Obama’s Thanksgiving Address didn’t give a … Continue reading Obama vs. George Washington on Thanksgiving

Feasting on Thanksgiving

In a week, most of us in the United States will gather as family and friends around a table and share in the lavish feast we call Thanksgiving. The tradition of setting aside a day to give thanks extends back to the earliest days of the U.S. The Continental Congress proclaimed a day of national thanksgiving in 1777, and President George Washington proclaimed one in 1789. After 1815, the practice disappeared until 1863, when President Abraham Lincoln established an annual national holiday of Thanksgiving to be observed on the last Thursday in November. This tradition is a merciful common grace … Continue reading Feasting on Thanksgiving
