Traditionally, Thanksgiving Day, is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada celebrating the harvest and other blessings of the past year. Looking back on 2020, I’m sorry, but I was having a bit of difficulty this year…
Beginning, and happening right off the bat in January, America was visited with an infectious virus from China. A virus that went on to wreck havoc for individual citizens and for businesses in America. No, I was not very thankful for that.
Then, there were the riots that spread all over America, over the alleged killing of a black man by the police. Upon investigation and after reviewing police and medical reports, he had a interesting cocktail of substances in his body that would easily and likely did kill him…. the officers knee notwithstanding. The guy was also apparently something of a crook. And, yet factions of the extreme Left aka Antifa and BLM took it upon themselves to destroy hundreds of businesses (many black owned btw) in what? The name of justice?? Again, I was rather pissed off and whatever love I had had for blacks had pretty much dissipated.
Then, there was the election in November. An election that saw tens of ‘mail-in’ ballots to wit there was a very high likelihood of shenanigans to be exploited. I feel quite certain that what should have been a cakewalk victory for Trump, was upended by cheating in key swing states. This bit of bullshit continued the divide that was growing in America, and which was spread by the Left leaning mass media.
So, as our country was headed into the day, November 26, we were all supposed to be thankful? Biden the lame as President, Governors like Cuomo and Newsom busy locking down entire states, An economy with a National debt of 27 trillion and no end in sight. A country almost at each other’s throats! You know what, I plan to hunker down and wait for 2025 when Trump is once against asked to take the reins of a smoldering wreck of a Republic. Assuming there is anything to salvage.
