The Real T- Day Story

I'm breaking tradition today. I'll usually go out of my way not to mention traditional holidays on this blog, at least not in a favorable light. Today will be different.

I saw this story about the origins of Thanksgiving all over the web the last couple years, in slightly different versions from a variety of different sources . Only saw it one place this time so thought maybe I should help spread it around.

Hat tip to the Right On blog for the link.

So, we should be fasting instead of feasting, eh?

In conclusion, the article reads:

"Thus the real reason for Thanksgiving, deleted from the official story, is: Socialism does not work; the one and only source of abundance is free markets, and we thank God we live in a country where we can have them."

Wow. So that is what a Libertarian Thanksgiving is about.

Happy Thanksgiving, Fred.

Fred,
Congratulations! You actually tricked at least two lefties into reading something worthwhile.

Happy Thanksgiving to ALL!

I confess, I didn't read the whole article, just the conclusion.
