The Day after Turkey

We had Turkey early yesterday giving me the chance to read some good writers online.

One of my favorites for several years now had been Christopher Hitchens, this piece on Thanksgiving from the point of view of an immigrant is wonderful and compared to the vile thing put out by a certain professor in Austin several days ago, who I will not link to, makes me yearn to be able to trade some US citizens for some bright non-citizens who understand what they have in the US and can appreciate it.

Speaking us trading I see where Boston picked up Josh Beckett from the Marlins. That does not help the Yankees at all who more than anything could use some good young pitchers.

George Will has a nice piece on Willaim F. Buckley who turns 80 years young and proves it in his own column.

I am off to see if I can find an open barber shop, have a nice day recovering , I will.

Happy Turkey

Have a Happy Thanksgiving.
We have a lot to be thankful for as a nation.
A lot of that is nagitive stuff like:
1) thanksful there has been no terrorist attack in the US.
2)Thanksful we are not France.


We do have some things to be thankful for that are positive.
I am thanksful my family is all together
That they are all in good health.
That we live in the greatest country in the world.,,
of course in my case that is just an accident of birth but I think I would have ended up here anyway just because there is no place on this planet that is anywhere as good to live in as the US.

Proof of that is all the left wingers who constantly are trying to there the US down do not seem to be in a hurry to move to whatever they feel if the country of thier dreams,

I wish they would we have much too much important stuff to do to be bothered with that kind of nonsense.

What is wrong with this Picture

I have not blogged about what is going on in France for several reasons aside from my general lack of posts. This item caught my eye today and I could not let it pass.
I was reading this article and down aways a saw this.

If the downward trend continues, "things could return to normal very quickly," National Police Chief Michel Gaudin said, noting that French youths burn about 100 cars on an average Saturday night.

Is it just me or does anyone else think it odd that on an average Saturday night the youth of France burns 100 cars. I mean I knew their movies were bad but the bars must be awful too.

A lot of people in this country how much countries in Europe are ruled by their elites.
Even the elites though seem to be fed up as this quote shows.

In the next few days, France is expected to start deporting foreigners implicated in the violence a plan by law-and-order Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy that has caused divisions in the government.

I wonder what they are going to do with the ones who are French citizens if in name only.

A bright note is that the people themselves seem to understand that Sarkozy is not the problem.

A poll in the newspaper Le Journal du Dimanche suggested Sarkozy is the politician that French people trust most to deal with the troubles. Some 53 percent said they supported him, while about 71 percent said they lacked confidence in President Jacques Chirac.

Another one Bites the Dust

I know I have not been looking at as many blogs as I once did but it truth it is really sad when I do because so many of those who inspired me early have left the scene. Today I looked around at some I have not in a while and that first thing I notices was that michele catalano has stopped blogging. I know things change a lot in 3 and a half years but in most of that time reading Michele's posts was one of the high points. I don't know exactly when she stopped but I think it was pretty recently.

Thanks Michele I will miss your posts and look forward to your finishing that novel as you have always meant to.
