    As you gobble your Thanksgiving turkey, imagine being a Pilgrim in March 1621. Hardly four months after the Mayflower reached Plymouth Rock the previous November, you still struggle for food, shelter, and survival in the state of nature.Suddenly, an Indian reaches your outpost. Friend or foe? What brought him here? How would you ever communicate with him?And then he opens his mouth. He speaks English! More amazing, he does so with a British accent and the demeanor of someone who had lived and worked among England’s elite.Who on Earth is this incredible man?Squanto, a.k.a. Tisquantum, was born about 1580...

    That “first” Thanksgiving in the autumn of 1621 involving the Pilgrims and members of the Wampanoag Confederacy under Massasoit occurred with many signs of God´s providence. That three day festival of meals including 5 deer (provided by the some 90 Indians attending); abundant wild game (probably waterfowl and wild turkey); fish, corn and bread was undoubtedly not the very first of celebrations giving thanks to God in the New World as these were a feature of the great Christian piety of the Europeans who came to the Western hemisphere after Columbus. But the Plymouth culinary event was the celebration most...

    These men in history set themselves apart because: they thought it worthwhile to have God in their thinking. Even through their unimaginable hardships and loathsome past that make many today scream “victicrat.” Hindsight shows us that these modern “victicrats” are the Progressives of today. * “A victicrat is one who blames all ills, problems, concerns, and unhappiness on others” (Larry Elder, Ten Things You Can’t Say in America, St. Martins, New York: NY [2000], p. 22-33). Thankfully, these men (and women) of history — especially Squanto — saw God’s providential hand working in their lives and considered it all joy...

    Yaa, you repukes are not doing so well, huh? Imagine, you repukes control the presidency, both houses of Congress, and appointed 7 of the 9 Supreme Court justices. Yet the Supreme Court thre out sodomy laws in all 50 states and recognized the right of government to seize land for any reason. And you couldn't pass your Social Security changes could you? Sorry, that was your last shot. Come November, we're going to start seeing more Democratic faces in the House. It's the end for you guys. You guys are celebrating when Bush's numbers go *up* to 45%.

  • Bush's Job Growth WORST in 50 Years (Roll out the red carpet for this “staunch Bush supporter.”)

    Bush’s giant Right Wing Noise Machine (RWNM) loves to preach about the Bush economic miracle. In fact, the RWNM’s current thinking is Bush doesn’t spend enough time talking about his economic triumphs. If only he did, then everyone would fall in line and believe in the great Bush economic miracle. There is one problem with this argument: it’s a lie. Any way you look at the Bush economy, it comes up short. Today, I want to compare Bush’s job creation record with other economic recoveries. As usual, Bush comes up way short. The national Bureau of Economic Research has identified...

    Why does anybody support George w Bush as President? He is clearly the worst President I have ever seen -- a complete disaster. And before you say anything, I have been a registered Republican for 25 years.

    Lies of omission about 9/11 -- stoking fears of terrorism THEY WANT YOU TO BE AFRAID The following post was censored by freerepublic.com shortly after it was posted on their "public" forum on 9/11/04. That forum is designed to appear as though it is a community forum open to all, but this post only received three responses before it and its replies were deleted, and a repeat posting at 4 am PST on 9/20/04 didn't stay online for 5 minutes!

    What is Derr you may ask? Derr may be the most important thing you may have to worry about. Derr is very evil, very naughty and very ungodly. It is believed to be the reason for why we aren't doing so well in Iraq. But back to the question... What exactly is Derr? Derr is a satanic ritual performed in this country long ago by the Canaanites, the Perezites, the Gurgashites, the Ammorites, the Moabites and the Hittites. It involved taking a stick from a wheat tree and sticking it up your nose while shouting, "Hey mom! Ship ahoy! There...

    <p>The Pilgrims were brave Christians who risked everything to gain religious freedom in the New World. Or they were fanatical European interlopers, guilty of "genocide" against American Indians. Multiculturalism has taken its toll on the reputation of the small band of Protestant separatists who landed at Plymouth Rock in November 1620.</p>

    Remembering Thanksgiving Day The Mayflower  1620- 2002 The voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 from Plymouth England, to Plymouth Rock started as a journey to find peace and justice in a new world. It began as a fervent prayer to give freedom a chance, and remains today as the promise each year for a new beginning. Thanksgiving Day is a celebration of hope, and remembrance. Today, we bring our families and friends together to share our tables and our hearts, and give thanks for all that we have to be grateful for in our new and glorious country. From this grand...
