Ahhhh, Thanksgiving again. Another Government-endorsed Holiday celebrating something that didn’t take place, with traditions which are in no way tied to the event itself, mired in religious concept and is little more than an excuse to try and boost the economy through travel, retail spending and media.
Kind of like Valentine’s Day and Christmas, when you think about it. Completely pointless. This year it’s even worse with the Economy being what it is – many will dine this Thursday on hot dogs, pizza, or hamburger helper, if they get to dine at all. Yet we promote this nonsense and make those less fortunate than us feel left out amongst the shopping throngs in the grocery stores across America.
If that’s not good enough for you, let’s beat down the economically-downtrodden a little more by offering to cut prices to the bone on Black Friday, once again leaving them to wonder how they’ll pay for their heating bills this winter instead of hopping onto the latest deal at Sam’s Club.
I’m not sure that’s the American Spirit our founders had in mind, folks. Yet we do it every single year.
So, instead of turkey (which nobody really cares for but tolerates, if sales have anything to do with it) on the dinner table, the good folks at The Mobius Trip will present you with a banquet of Political Turkeys.
You won’t see THESE turkeys on CNN, which has put out the EASY list. We have a LOT to choose from this year, but the major Political Turkeys of 2008 would have to include the following:
Obama’s Grieving Process
This man’s mother (technically his grandmother, but this is the woman he CLAIMS raised him) dies on the day before he’s elected President, and here 3 weeks later he has yet to attend a funeral for her.
Is it just me, or is that highly suspect?
Why are there no RECENT photos of this man with her? The most recent photo that has surfaced is at least 20 years old.
Perhaps their relationship wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. Perhaps she was offended at being drug into the whole scene by Barry. Perhaps it was just another Obama lie.
Whatever the case, the failure of this man to to attend a prompt funeral and burial of this woman is an oddly immoral and highly suspicious act by someone who the O-bots characterize as the “New Dawn in American Men”. Let’s hope not.
Anything done by George Bush
Goes without saying. This man has disgraced the United States Presidency almost as much as Bubba Clinton. Almost. Only reason Georgie gets graded higher is that he DID achieve his objectives while in office, and he did it right in front of your blank faces, America. He trashed the constitution, started two wars, generated billions of dollars for his friends, and laid down fundamental laws (Patriot Act, FISA, etc) for the Police State to come.
Obama’s “Vetting” Process
It’s huge. It’s massive. It’s thorough. And it is ALL themed to one specific element: Is there ANYTHING about you which could embarrass The President?
Not our Country, not our Government, but Obama himself.
That’s where the concern is with Mr. O and his machine – his pristine image.
Despite this, Obama hasn’t provided even as simple a document as his long form Birth Certificate, and he’s asking his staff to talk about DIARIES they’ve written. It’s presumptive, it’s elitist, and it’s completely a ‘secret society police state intrusion’ into the lives of what otherwise may be good people to serve in Government. Why? Because this tyrant-in-training wants the goods on YOU, not vice-versa. Welcome to an oppressive police state, coming your way in the next 4 years. Sadly, most of you won’t see it until it’s too late.
Hitler himself never vetted his staff in this way, but only because he had the freedom of shooting them when problems arose. Perhaps with the proper anti-gun legislation, Obama will be able to accomplish the same thing.
Oprah, Jesse & Co – In Tears
Sorry to break this news to you folks, but he only LOOKS like you. In every other aspect he’s an elitist, corrupt, self-serving politician. He’s a multimillionaire whose only actual achievement to date has been being elected to public office. The very few ACTIONS he’s actually taken in the last 5 years bear this out. Sorry you guys got suckered so publicly, but if you’d kept your opinions and endorsements to yourself, perhaps you wouldn’t lack the credibility you do now. While we’re shaming people here, shame on ANYONE who allows a fucking Television or Movie celebrity to tell them how to vote.
Obama and Hillary crash Bilderberg
No, they weren’t meeting – Obama never even considered Hillary for the VP slot. They ditched the media to crash the meeting of The Bilderberg Group in Chantilly, VA this year. How do we know? Find some of the 150+ people who attended the protests that night and ask THEM who they saw sneaking into the Marriott that night.
Amazing that the election, in itself, was the false flag attack distracting you from the fact that the United States Government has managed to give away almost 9 TRILLION dollars to industry giants like AIG, Citicorp, Goldman Sachs and others. You know, Wall Street Banker types – folks who REALLY need the money. In the meantime, people are losing jobs, losing homes, going without necessities and yet STILL go out and vote FOR the morons who voted in this package. It’s amazing what the unwashed masses put up with and manage to screw up for the rest of us because they’re too absorbed in their own little world to understand that these criminals have just raided YOUR treasury and that of your children…and it’s not over yet.
McCain Picks Palin for VP
This still amazes me, or at least it did. I said, on more than one occasion (and thought it more often) that it almost seemed like the Republican Party was throwing the election. If I wasn’t aware that the other side is firmly owned by the Bankers, The Bilderberg Group, The Council on Foreign Relations, The Trilateral Commission and other very elite special interest groups, I’d think that the Republicans had all suddenly gone insane. Instead, picking McCain and then Palin makes perfect sense. Enough to stir rage, emotion, hype and controversy, but also no WAY that most thinking people would vote for them.
Disenfranchisement of Democratic Voters in Michigan and Florida
This was a masterfully strategic move on Obama’s part, providing that you believe there was ever an actual competition for the Democratic nomination this year. The DNC sweepingly discounted all primary votes for these two states for some perceived violation of their rules, and while Hillary screamed to have every vote counted, the Obama Machine lobbied heavily to keep these votes OUT. Once he had secured enough votes to win the nomination, he changed his tune. Hey! Whaddya know? That might count as change after all! Still, in overwhelming numbers, the mindless cultists in both states voted for the O-Man on election day.
Alex Jones and his $250,000 Money Bomb
In May, documentary maven and popular Truth Movement personality Alex Jones held a Money Bomb a la Ron Paul. Prior to this, Alex was very active and vocal – we had a lot of events that he covered during the year, even Bilderberg in the DC area. After raising nearly a quarter of a million dollars, we don’t hear from Alex so often anymore. Draw your own judgement on that.
Osama Bin Laden
Yes, they’re still pushing this mythical figure at us. The most evil man in the world, or so they say. Dangerous, diabolical, mysterious and, conveniently enough, still missing. Children all over the world have found Waldo, yet nobody can seem to find this dirty, disheveled man living in a cave with a camcorder and a laptop, causing all manner of chaos all over the world. No big surprise, folks – he lives with the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny, and what your friends in Mainstream Media and Government won’t tell you is that he is EVERY bit as big a threat as his roomies.
People who voted for Obama and “Change”
Perhaps the biggest Political Turkey of all time, I almost feel sorry for those who had been taken in by all the O-Hype. Hope. Change. (What. The. Fuck. Ever.)
Let’s face it, so far the President Elect hasn’t done anything differently than anyone else in his position.
He’s appointed veteran Washington insiders to vital positions, has placed the foxes in charge of the henhouse in Treasury, and has continued to put forth campaign statements as if they could somehow magically transform into policy and law.
He’s already ripping our constitution as badly as Bush has done (enjoy your ‘free speech zones’ at the Inauguration), and will soon relieve you of many of your pesky constitutional rights, which you’ll gladly give away in order to be able to get back to your television set.
So this year, we’re thankful for:
- Our freedom of speech, although we’re losing it slowly but surely.
- Our right to bear arms, although The O-Man has that firmly in his sights.
- Our financial security, well at least until Congress started rewarding corrupt and failed businesses with bailouts.
Guess now that I think about it, the really big (and only enduring) thing we all have to be thankful for this year is the Truther movement. We’ve opened the eyes of many this year, and still have a long way to go.
In the meantime, to paraphrase Barney Frank, we’ll continue busting balls, because it’s a helluva lot easier than actually governing.
In Truth and Gravy, I am,
