Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for remembrance and praise to God. We remember what those brave colonists did so many years ago to open the New World to freedom seekers despite difficult odds. And we know that without God's Divine Providence they would have never been successful, yet with the strength He provided they pushed themselves to create the beginnings of the greatest nation on earth.
But there is one thing that took place yesterday that put a temporary damper on the festivities which needs to be addressed. Simply put, that item was Obama's Thanksgiving message or to be better described, Obama's political speech once again trying to justify his massive refugee overload with people who cannot even be vetted.
Yesterday, Barack Obama compared the Syrian refugees to the Pilgrims, saying that they were escaping strife and only America could help them. The only problem is that we don't know for sure who is or is not a refugee, there is no way to identify their background or true intentions and they can only be a huge drain on our already depleted treasury as they seek food, housing, cash and whatever else this man with no economic savvy will give them. Furthermore, with nearly eighty percent of those in the queue being strapping young men of military age, the question which is never answered is where are the women and the children?
Now compare that to the Pilgrims, men and women escaping religious persecution and expecting nothing other than a place where they could make it on their own. No welfare, no food stamps, no free housing or Obamacare, none of these things. It was up to them to establish their own destiny; they were not dependent on a bloated government to solve their problems. They would solve them on their own.
It is clear that Obama needs a good history lesson, but then again, he has made it clear that as far as he is concerned, and history that is more than fifty years old is of no value. He truly does believe in his distorted mind that history began with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
And for Obama to use this most American of holidays to push his jaded political agenda is just one more example of his arrogance and disregard for the American people. They themselves, including people of all races and creed, are severely hurting from job cuts, the wave of illegal immigrants taking American jobs, loss of freedoms to more government regulations and, of course, the disastrous Obamacare to name just a few. And then, of course, there are our veterans, many of whom still can't get the care they need from the Veterans Administration while Obama pushes for open medical access for non-citizens.
So, yes, Thanksgiving was a good time to celebrate America but I would ask the President as he starts his last year in office one special favor. Please, please stop the political push for your unwanted and unwise programs as part of a national day of honor. You dishonor the office you hold when you do so and you show yourself to be nothing more than a political hack hawking for more chaos in a land that is at the breaking point. Isn't it time for you to act like the President of the United States with dignity and honor for her glory? But I guess the answer is that your dogma just will not allow you to open your eyes to what America truly is and that is exceedingly sad.
God bless America and save her. May she ever be free.
