My Thanksgiving List

The other day I wrote a piece about being grateful.

I don't spend a lot of time wanting shit- I am grateful for what I have.

So what I thought I'd do today, is write a brief list of things that I am thankful and grateful for- but first I am going to embed one of my favorite all time songs.

The List

I am grateful for my family, my girlfriend, my friends. I surround myself with intelligent conservatives. If I need any variety- I can call up Billy Moonbat or read some garbage on Huffington Post.

I am grateful for the continued health and safety of my loved ones. I get another year with them.

I am grateful for my own health. That I can get up in the morning when I damn well feel like it.

I am grateful that I have had a very rewarding career and that I have a few dimes to rub together. I am grateful that I can do what I want and not have to take shit from one more domineering boss.

I am grateful for my Harley, my shack and my dirt, and those that made it possible.

I am grateful that I live in a REPUBLIC...a republic that is supposed to have a rule of law rather than a mob rule democracy. I am grateful that I know the difference.

I am grateful that I am sober. I am grateful that I was present the day that a man who listed his former address as the Claiborne Bridge in New Orleans said that he was grateful for clean socks. That was the moment when I realized my problems were bumps on a gnat's ass.

I am very grateful I hit the early pick 4 at Delta Downs last night and keyed the 6 at the top of my trifecta.

I am grateful for all of these things- things which I probably don't deserve. One last thing.

I am grateful for the freedom to express myself. Day after day, I put it out here. I try to help people understand how we are being manipulated and over run. The ability to communicate is the only thing that will save us. There will come a day when they'll try to take that. History always has a lesson. Pay attention.

Happy Thanksgiving!
