Why We Eat Turkey On Thanksgiving Day

Hat/Tip to Ethan Trex at mental_floss.   When Americans sit down with their families for Thanksgiving dinner, most of us will probably gorge ourselves on the same traditional Thanksgiving menu, with turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, and pumpkin pie taking up the most real estate on our plates. How did these dishes become the national “what you eat on Thanksgiving” options, though? THE PILGRIMS MAY NOT HAVE HAD TURKEY Turkey may not have been on the menu at the 1621 celebration by the Pilgrims of Plymouth that is considered the First Thanksgiving (though historians and fans of Virginia’s Berkeley Plantation might […]

It’s time to kick that “turkey” Turkey out of NATO

  In the 60’s, the expression: “You’re such a turkey!” implied that the person on the receiving end of the comment was a loser, inept, a fool, or generally uncool. Turkey a member of NATO has become all of those things and much worse under the leadership of  Recep Tayyip Erdo?an. A much stronger adjective is need to describe what a non-ally Turkey has become. Under Erdogan, Turkey has gone from being a decidedly secular nation to a decidedly Islamic nation.

Anyway.  What did I want to talk about? Oh yes. As you […]

Armenian Genocide Day; Also, Another Opportunity for Obama to Lie

The word ‘genocide’ is a recent word that means destroying, either in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial, or religious group. This can be done by killing them all off, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life that are calculated to kill them off, imposing measures on the group intended to prevent births by the group, forcibly transferring children of the group to another group, and trying to breed the group out of existence by systematically raping the women of the group. The 20th Century has a brutal legacy of genocide- Darfur, Bosnia (1995), Rwanda (1994), Cambodia […]
