Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is an iconic American holiday.

I know the origins of the holiday are Puritan Christian.

I know it is based on the slow seductive, manipulation of Native Americans but Thanksgiving as we know it today is neither Puritan nor is it Anti-native American.

Thanksgiving is a 1941 contrivance to boost the economy under the FDR administration.

Today it continues to be a worship of capitalism and a wish for plenty.

Thanks

Whew. I better baste that turkey before it dries out. Don't want my guest consumers to order a refund.

I wish I could offer more profundity here, but sadly I am rather consumed by vodka and an unusually saguine heart.
