It’s a Wonderful Life

It just wouldn’t be the holidays without watching this classic story of New Deal idealism.

Make the jump to see the rest:

  1. Savage would call George Bailey a Commie and Limpballs would call him a Bleeding Heart Liberal.

  2. Nice. And still a great movie.

    Sadly we’re headed towards Potterville because of these New Dems and the Repubs with each side working for the Potters and not us.

    Here’s to hoping people will notice and wake up. Here’s to a third party candidate to shake it all up. I can dream.

  3. My mom declared prohibition on thanksgiving without informing us in advance. This is PA. Even on normal days, the state stores are a pain in the ass with operating hours and selection.
    She was concerned that one of my cousins is in recovery and she didn’t want to tempt her. We were all in shock. Huh? She got an earful from more than one person including the cousin who was a bit insulted. Fortunately, cousin’s husband stopped at winery on the way here and picked up a couple of bottles. The selection is limited but it’s better than nothing. If I’d known, I would have stopped at my favorite wine store on the way here and picked up some nice gewurtzreminer. But, noooooo.

    • talk about a dry turkey

    • A big family gathering without booze, that could be a serious problem. What was she thinking.

      • Don’t ask me. We all looked at her like she had grown three heads. It did not compute. She said she wanted to save cuz from temptation. Cuz set her straight real fast but the damage was done. No place to get wine last night when we found out mum was a member of the WCTU. t-day in central PA? Looking for an open state store? Are you kidding me? Nahgahhappen.
        It’s not like we are a bunch of lushes. Usually mum gets some fine boxed white zin but no one complains. But this is ridiculous.

        • Still amazes me that you have to go to state stores in PA for wine. Really, wine. What’s with that?

          • No F#%*ing Clue. Probably better tha Nj’s lack of liquor licenses for restaurants because the mafia owns what’s available. Still, at one grocery store in Nj, you can buy wine. It’s just one but it’s within driving distance if I were at home today.
            But not here. Not one place to buy wine today. Very interesting that she announced this little extra special thanksgiving day feature *after* the state stores had closed.
            She has a truly evil streak.

          • Kansas has state stores also …. Luckily I remembered to run out for a box of Merlot last night before it closed!

          • All you yankees feel so superior to us southerners with our hookworm, bad teeth and all, but at least here in Louisiana we have drive-through daiquiri stands…

        • If you really need to, a quick trip down 83 to MD will solve that problem. OK, quick is relative.

          • And if really desperate, drive down 15 then 29 to DT’s Vineyard and Booze house of ill repute.

          • I’d say 81 to 33 to 29, but I really hate 81.

          • Thanks for the invitation. But I don’t think you want 12 of us dropping on you.
            BFF is visiting his fan today and they always have gallons of stuff including all the champagne you can drink. He says that they’re Presbyterians: whenever four or more of them are gathered, there’s a fifth.
            Yeah, they know how to party.
            So much better than a V8.

          • 81 isn’t so bad. 15 is too rural.
            I could have been getting sloshed with the BFF today. He is laughing right now in his texts.

          • The more I thought about it, I realized something. Visiting extended family without booze is one of those recurring nightmare where I wake up in a cold sweat screaming. God help us all.

          • Just stuff the turkey with prozac and all will be well.

          • It’s my mom who drives us crazy. Everyone else is fine.
            We are coping, but it could have been cheerier.

          • Booze is the first thing I buy for the holidays. (Actually, stock up in advance.)

          • Mom? Is that you?

  4. This was my deceased husband’s favorite movie of all. So, now it always makes me think of him.

    That’s true about Presbyterians, which is what I grew up with.

    I live in PA and do not mind the state store, even after living in CA where I picked up wine along with my groceries. Only thing – wine was cheaper in CA!

  5. It’s amazing how much work goes into a Thanksgiving Dinner even when there’s no company expected!

    I hope everyone is having a wonderful day.

  6. Sister just arrived with a bag of mixed beers and wine. We are SAVED!
    I am truly thankful.

  7. I love that movie.

    Happy Thanksgiving, all!


  8. Ah-HAH! This year, my cousin Michelle gave the blessing. She didn’t even ask. She just did it. No rambling affairs with multiple parts that just make your neck ache from bowing your head too long because some male relative was asked first. No, she jumped to the head of the line and pulled off a short, sweet, eloquent masterpiece. I gave her a round of applause afterwards.
    Damn, that’s the way to do it. Just jump right in and grab the reins.
