My belated Thanksgiving post, because why the hell not?

While reading this, imagine it is thanksgiving πŸ™‚

Every where I turn online people are writing about the things they are thankful for. Because they apparently are only thankful during thanksgiving. Yet, I struggle to understand this holiday. I struggle to understand how people can pretend to be thankful and then the majority of they year be filled with such negativity towards each other and such hatred.

So instead of writing a post about things I am thankful for, I am going to write about hypocritical things I do not understand

 

shit-just-got-real

1. People who are pro life, but only the lives they deem worthy. For some that is unborn, but not the innocent on death row. For others that is those who are in their religion, but not others. For some that is simply their life and no one else’s. How can you pick and chose whose life is worthy and whose is not. Do you really think you know that much about everyone’s life?

2. People who think the only people on government assistance don’t need it, and are living the high life, and then tell you, that you should try and get on food stamps because everyone else is. Because getting $4 a day for food from the government is really making you dependent on anything.

3. People who would rather spend tens of thousands of dollars a year on private school then a couple extra hundred a year in taxes to make the public schools better. You know because when you spend money on taxes its evil even when it is less than the alternative.

4. People who spend years and years complaining about their life, but do not want to do anything to make it better. Or have an excuse as to why they can’t do anything to make it better. (not talking about those cases where you truly cannot do anything of course)

5. People who think if you don’t hit your child they will grow up spoiled and useless. Yes, you are so right. We must teach our children the only way anyone learns anything is through violence. Because that is working so well for the world. P.S. 80% of american still spank their kids, so saying youth today are spoiled bc they were not spanked isn’t going to work for you. How about we all just do our best to raise our kids? Just a thought.

    • Your request has been processed and was denied. I blog about happens to come to mind, so maybe it will be happy maybe not no way to tell.
      I am trying to get her to write about it πŸ™‚ She is a busy girl. But it is coming.

  1. 2. gets under my skin like nothing else because I work with those people. They are the most hardworking people you’ll meet.

    BTW, I don’t get how on Thanksgiving we’re supposed to celebrate how much we have by stuffing our faces. I think it makes more sense to celebrate that by fasting, since you better appreciate things once you go without them.

  2. Great post. I hate all that thanky-thanky stuff. BTW, I wrote a column (back when I had a column) about spanking based on some research that showed it can actually lead to mental illness. I’m hyper simplifying this. BUT, I got so many readers who defended spanking. It was so sad. I was spanked/beaten with a belt. What’s sad is my most vivid memories of my father are either him spanking me or him rip-roaring drunk. Oh, and there’s the time he blew off my birthday…because he went out for a cocktail lunch with his buds from work. Bitter much??? Sorry.
