Turkey fever.

It must really suck to be a turkey in A-merry-ca. Can you imagine a day dedicated to millions of people eating your ass? If you are a young turkey that is not the kind of future you want to look forward to. "What are you going to be when you grow up there little turkey?" "Some lucky family's meal on Thanksgiving Day, sir. And if I grow really big and strong, I will feed a really large family on Thanksgiving Day."

Wow, talk about f*&^%d up options.

Anyway, I wonder what would have happened if the Pilgrims (and let's not forget the Wampanoags) had caught some wild pigs instead of wild birds during that three day celebration back in 1621? A lot of us would have been pretty much left out of this whole Thanksgiving Day thing. I know I would have. Thank you Governor Bradford.

I know that I don't act like it sometimes, but I really have a lot to be thankful for. ---I can't even begin to count the ways.--- I suspect that a lot of you reading this feel the same way. You are bonding with your families and friends while surrounded by all the creature comforts that life affords you. It's hard to think about those folks here in A-merry-ca -and all over the world- who don't have much to be thankful for, but we should. And we should never forget how fortunate we are.

Life is all about perspective, and we should always keep things in their proper perspective. We should also do whatever we can to improve the plight of others less fortunate than we are. I know that you Christians reading this already do that, but I just thought that I would remind you

So Happy Turkey Day A-merry-ca, enjoy your meals tomorrow while you connect with your loved ones. And remember; be grateful for what you have. Because if you think about it; you could have been a damn turkey.

Oh another spurt of genius from the resident seed of incest. Why are you always talking about fucking your mother? Was she that good? I mean I know she was your first but get over it.

One of the great myths of history is that the Pilgrims went to America to evade religious persecution. In fact they were looking for a place where they would be allowed to practice religious persecution without hinderance. The Puritans murdered others for holding different views to themselves both before and after they left England.

The coincidences between the views of the Puritans and the Taliban are quite startling.

Field, knock off the bullshit. You know there are some angry folks in A-merry-ka. You can't camouflage Negroes' or anons' anger. Hell, neither one of them have two nickels to rub together. They can only begin to dream of buying a turkey for Thanksgiving....they have to steal one.

I am one of those broke-ass anons and I don't appreciate you and Desertflower rubbing my face in all of your boundless gratitudes cause y'all got so much. You two sound EXACTLY like a bunch of Republicans.

As I said before, I will be eating a McBurger WITHOUT cheese, cause I can't afford the cheese. So go ahead, talk about how grateful you Negroes in Philly and on that tiny-ass island out in the middle of the ocean called Puerto Rico.

I hear they don't even have turkeys in PR--they eat Black Condors shipped from CA....Lord have mercy.

"Field, I hear some blogs will be closed tomorrow. Will FN be open? "

I thought about it, but no, it's better to stay open. I just wish that I could share some turkey with Anon @ 8:51 PM. The poor soul sounds like he could use some cheering up.

I am trying to stay positive and upbeat on the eve of giving thanks and these Anons keep trying to pull me down.

Anonymous said...

Field, stop telling on me to my boss. What are you trying to do, ruin my McBurger without cheese and WITHOUT fries tomorrow? You see, tomorrow is just another day for me. Maybe YOU look forward to being with family, but I don't. Yeah, that's right. There are some of us who feel that if they EVER see some family again, it will be too damn soon.

So go ahead and throw down your turkey. Obviously you are not feeling that sorry for a turkey if your mouth is watering for his ass tomorrow. Gobble, gobble.

Looking forward to being on your blog tomorrow after I finish my one McBurger, which shouldn't take too long. God, I hope Mellaneous doesn't show up.

Just last night I watched a documentary about the Wampanoags and how the settlers forced them to stop speaking their language. So now they are trying to re-learn the Wampanoags language.

The settlers also stole just about all of their land. Oh and the Wampanoags were almost totally killed off by diseases the settlers brought with them from England.

And on that note; Happy Thanksgiving, Mr. Field!

That explains everything. Were you one of those nightshift nurses who harassed the patients?

Desertflower, you need to quit. They don't have turkey burgers at Burger King. You are really going to make Anon mad at you now.

Anon, please come by tomorrow. I promise I will tell Mell to stay away. Besides, he will be out feeding the less fortunate or something.

"The settlers also stole just about all of their land. Oh and the Wampanoags were almost totally killed off by diseases the settlers brought with them from England."

Oh yeah, where did I put that medicine again?

On a serious note, speaking of feeding the homeless; shout out to the "Philabundance" folks. They really do some good work this time of year.

Val, why is it that you are ALWAYS trying to make Whites look bad? You know half of these documentaries are false, don't you? But you would rather believe the settlers killed off everybody and brought a lot of diseases with them. That is NOT true, at all. If it were true, there would be no person of color alive today.

The fact is the Whites helped save us. That's why folks like Field, Desertflower, and you celebrate Thanksgiving. While you are giving your thanks tomorrow show some gratitude for the Whites who have made your life immensely better!

Was the last sentence in your comment intended to tease me? Was that a dig to let me know that even homeless people are having turkey while I have to eat a McBurger? I swear, there are some cruel folks on FN, esp those from PR. Desert remained in the health field waaay too long. I am changing her name to FrostyFlower.

Interesting, tough job being a Nurse. Just wondering do you find it Titillating and how do you keep abreast of new developments in your field? What do you do to keep a head and do you find yourself really spread thin on some nights that force you to bend over backwards for demanding patients? Do you like it on the floor? I think thats what nurse's call it when they make the rounds?
Do they still make you wear those loose but revealing uniforms? What color is the one you use? Are you wearing it now? :)

Oh Lordy! There was a movie called "Night Shift Nurses" years ago that took the porn industry by storm.I bet Field saw it many times.

Anyway, my wife made me throw it away. That was 20 years ago and I really miss those nurses. I finally divorced my wife over it. What a b***h!

And now, a tradition as American as pumpkin pie: Rush Limbaugh's "true story of Thanksgiving."

Remember the story of the first Thanksgiving? Well, according to the story that Limbaugh tells almost every year on his radio show, history books, your parents and all the best elementary school plays left out one crucial part: socialism.

Yes, the pilgrims came to Plymouth, Massachusetts to seek religious freedom and build a new home. But, as Limbaugh explains, their plan was almost scuttled when a social contract they'd made backfired.
The original contract the Pilgrims had entered into with their merchant sponsors in London called for everything they produced to go into a common store, and each member of the community was entitled to one common share. All of the land that they cleared and the houses they built belonged to the community as well. Now, they were going to distribute it equally; all the land they cleared, all the houses they built belonged to the community. Nobody owned anything. They just had a share in it. It was a commune.

Field said, "No, they don't. But it's all good. Eating healthy is one doctrine I can get behind.

Damn, Field. I didn't know that pork was unhealthy. I bought a huge ham for Thanksgiving, thinking I would go half vegan and save some fowl lives. I figured God wouldn't give a damn about pigs. Come to think of it I bet you have a few pigs on your blog, esp on Thanksgiving Day.

BTW, I am so glad you are open today. It shows your dedication to Blacks, uninvited Whites, and zero Latinos. Do you ever wonder about those Latinos? I mean, at least the white racists show up to let us know they think we are slaves. But the Latinos act as if we don't even exist.

I guess they follow the slogan, "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all."

Don't forget to watch the Packers/Lions game. That is going to be a knock down drag out fight...49ers/Ravens too.

Pork isn't really unhealthy - it's actually just as healthy or moreso in some cases as beef. However there are many cultural taboos - going back to seventh day adventists follow the same dietary restrictions as Jews.

So do we have a Sammy Davis Field in our midst who follows the laws of ancient Jews? Islamists also follow the same dietary rules with the restriction of Camels, they believe you can eat a camel if needed. Jews do not.
