Welcome new members of 2011, and new members from December, and anyone who feels neglected. The first week of this new year hasn't done a whole lot for me, but I hope you are all getting off to a good start.

Possibly of interest here, I'm trying to collect bible or other "holy works" quotes that support racism, as a resource - collection started here.  So many religious people seem to think that religion promotes love and equality for all, when the book clearly supports slavery and ethnocentrism.  Jesus, the long haired love-everybody hippie of the new testament was also pro slavery, and had no problem with beating slaves.  Hence the religious support for the practice for centuries of US history.  Jesus didnt suddenly change his mind with modernity, it's all still there.

I have always thought about the food & food only. Never gave a thought to either Pilgrims or Indians & the only time I heard about it was in elementary school. For me, it's my favorite holiday, because the consideration is food and nothing but food.

You, enjoy your day also. Happy Thanksgiving Bay to all. While you indulge, try to remember the Natives of this land.

Happy Turkey Day to you and all. I'm going to have a first class feast today, and another on Saturday.

For those of us who chose to come out of the closet and have commited social suicide, I would like to say Happy Thanksgiving (Turkey Day). No we don't need to a sky daddy in order to be grateful for our time here on this side of the earth. Enjoy your day, even if you don't celebrate this holiday.
