    • Killing Herd Animals
      One of the great crimes and tragedies of our world is how we treat the animals we eat (or whose milk or eggs or other products we eat and use.) Factory farming keeps them in tiny enclosures, feeds them monotonous foods, and then when they’re slaughtered it’s a terrible experience: they’re terrified and die in […]

Happy Thanksgiving

Freedom from Want, Norman Rockwell

Jeez, it’s only 12:27pm and I already have a buzz.  I blame my sister.  She held me down and poured Jaegermeister shots down my throat.  Dang!  I have to peel potatoes in a moment.

Anyway, I hope you are all having a lovely Thanksgiving.  I’m in central PA.  It’s a beautiful day outside but we’re watching a football game and all of the NYTimes videos for preparing and carving the turkey.  OMG, the singer just forgot the words to the national anthem.  Disgraceful.

By the way, OWS is serving Thanksgiving Day dinner in Zuccotti Park:

This Thanksgiving, Occupy Wall Street is celebrating unity and community with an open feast at Liberty Square. From 2 to 6 p.m. at Liberty Square (Zuccotti Park) we will meet to share food, stories and inspiration. All members of our global community are invited to break bread with us.

“This is all about supporting the 99%,” said Megan Hayes, an organizer with the #OWS Kitchen working group, and a former high end chef. “So many people have given up so much to come and be a part of the movement because there is really that much dire need for community. We decided to take this holiday opportunity to provide just that – community.”

Wait, why does this story sound so familiar?  Damn do-gooders.  What kind of example will they set for the country by sharing?  It will only encourage the young to go into poverty.

Or, a lot of people will have dinner together.  Works for me.

Freedom from Want, Occupy Wall Street
