Giving Thanks On Thanksgiving - There Is Hope

While the majority of Americans believe that our country is headed in the wrong direction and we are disgusted by all the waste, fraud, abuse, redundancy, failures, scandals and corruption that exists in our government, we still have many reasons to give Thanks On Thanksgiving.  And, though we still have to work very hard to push back the 100 years of Socialist Creep that is bankrupting our country, to once again establish limited government, lower taxes and less regulations to get the government out of our everyday existence,  we can still be thankful that we live in America rather than any other place on earth.

Every once in a while we see something that gives us hope that all is not lost.  In the past few days as Blacks in St. Louis were rioting, looting and committing arson in response to the Grand Jury ruling that Officer Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown in the line of duty, one occurrence caught on video was that glimmer of hope.  As about 100 Black kids broke into the family owned Ferguson Market, in order to loot it, the very same market that Michael Brown and his buddy robbed just minutes before the interaction with Officer Wilson and the same market that was looted last August when the killing occurred, a young Black woman went into the store to put out the fire that an arsonist had started.  She used gallons of milk from the market refrigerators as the nearest liquid to put out the fire.  She apparently was determined that the market that she shopped at frequently was not going to be burned to the ground.  This young Black woman is a hero; but more importantly, her parents taught her the values of right from wrong.  In this case, good prevailed over evil and that gives me hope that America is not lost. 

And then, Socialist Senator Chuck Schumer of New York went on TV to tell the American people that the Democrats made a big mistake when they enacted ObamaCare instead of focusing on the economy.   Schumer admitted that they should have focused on the 15% of Americans without medical insurance and enacted some reforms to impact all Americans; but not tampered with medical insurance for the 85% of Americans that were perfectly happy with their medical plans.  Of course, Schumer's admonition is really just political in nature because he finally recognized that creating this huge redistribution of income Socialist Scheme cost Socialists both the Senate and the House of Representatives.   Schumer essentially admitted that when they enacted ObamaCare, without a single Republican vote, that it was at the expense of young people, the Middle Class and Senior Citizens.  All the lies about ObamaCare are finally recognized; though this Blogger and anyone with a brain has been saying these things since this monstrosity became law.  Now that the truth has seen the light of day, there is hope that ObamaCare will be repealed and replaced by real health care reform.  

Most important, even though our country is going in the wrong direction in so many ways, the American people have it right.  We support many worthy charities and causes that intervene to change life's.   We fight for the unborn because we know that a culture that condones infanticide is evil.  We cling to our faith, families and guns because we also understand that these are the foundation of our freedom.  Every year on Thanksgiving we give thanks for the bounty that God has provided our nation.   At the same time, we recognize that freedom is not free.  Millions of Americans, since our nation's founding have sacrificed blood and treasure to protect our freedoms and to make America the greatest country in the history of the world.  And to them especially on Thanksgiving, we should all say Thank You.
