Not one of my best years but there are still somethings I am grateful for…
-That in this tough economy, I still have a job that pays my bills and keeps a roof over my head.
-That my mom who survived Breast Cancer and is living with Diabetes is in remission and otherwise healthy.
-For all of my friends, both on line and in the meatspace.
-That I do not have Pamela Gellar’s brain.
Anti-Muslim blogger Pamela Geller, one of the driving forces behind the Ground Zero mosque controversy, has set her sights on a new manifestation of the stealth jihad: YourThanksgiving turkey. Geller is calling for a boycott of Butterball, accusing the compainy of selling “stealh halal” turkeys prepared in accordance with Muslim dietary laws:
Across this great country, on Thanksgiving tables nationwide, infidel Americans are unwittingly going to be serving halal turkeys to their families this Thursday. Turkeys that are halal certified — who wants that, especially on a day on which we are giving thanks to G-d for our freedom? I wouldn’t knowingly buy a halal turkey — would you? Halal turkey, slaughtered according to the rules of Islamic law, is just the opposite of what Thanksgiving represents: freedom and inclusiveness, neither of which are allowed for under that same Islamic law. (Bold face mine.)
I am grateful that I do not have Pamela Gellar’s tiny fear filled brain. Turkey is turkey is delicious, no matter how it’s prepared.
-I am grateful for the #occupywallstreet movement for changing the conversation.
-I am grateful that I am still alive. And that we are not yet living in a world where I could be hunted down by a Cannibalistic Rape gang. (So far.)
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and I will celebrate by cooking a big meal and staying the hell of the Internet. No blogging, no Tweeting, no Facebooking, no nothing.
God willing and the creek don’t rise, I’ll see you all Friday.
