Occupy Plymouth Rock!

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I had to share this timely cartoon. 

According to historical record, the Pilgrims celebrated A Feast of Thanksgiving at Plimoth Plantation (now Plymouth Massachusetts) in 1621. For those of you who are still suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from your plight of having to deal with an inconvenient power outage two weeks ago, this is a good time to take heart and be assured that any inconvenience you suffered was probably about 1/1000 that of the daily hardship endured by our brave ancestors.  In comparison, our temporary self-pity over lack of television, or a fully-charged cell phone is rather minute.

The Occupy Wall Street crowd is a step beyond this:  unimaginative, lazy, tired, whiny, and ironic.  These sorts would have likely been the first to perish after one cold winter at Plimoth Plantation. Of course, that's if they survived the proper whippings they would have been administered by Governor Bradford and his Council. Yeah, back then there wasn't patience for the welfare mindset that so many of our fellow citizens have come to adhere to in this century.

While you're sitting at the Thanksgiving table eating turkey and stuffing, remember that even though it's been a rough year - there are so many basic things to be truly thankful for - life, family, a few pennies in the bank, and food on the table.  These are things that most of us have earned through hard work and self-determination.  And you can also be thankful that you and your kids didn't turnout to be anything like the indolent fools in the Occupy crowd.  That in itself is a blessing worth getting on your hands and knees to praise the Lord for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
