Hopefully you have enjoyed a great Thanksgiving with your family and you’re trying to figure out how to make best use of the leftover turkey. 

Remember last year at this time, Dr. Fauci was telling us not to gather in groups of more than 8 or 10 and better to just eat by yourself while wearing 2 or 3 masks. Not many of us did that last year, and probably no one paid any attention to that kind of stuff this year. Most people by now have either had a vaccination or have had Covid and have natural antibodies. I just can’t imagine that many people worried about what some big-government cosmic kill-joys had to say about enjoying Thanksgiving with your families.

Sadly, some people from the cancel culture left didn’t enjoy a Thanksgiving this year. To begin with, they think the Pilgrims were a bunch of imperialist racists who stole the land, and whose Puritan religious views were bigoted because their beliefs came right out of the Bible. I feel sad for the irreligious left, as they probably gathered in groups of 3 eating tofu, raw radishes, and baked carrots.

This uniquely American holiday of Thanksgiving is one of the most important to me. It’s a reminder that our nation was started by people who sought religious liberty and the freedom to worship God. They risked their very lives to come to a country they didn’t know to try and make a better life for their children. They weren’t perfect, but after some failed attempts at what we’d call socialism today, in which they tried communal living, they resorted to capitalism and allowed families to own land and reap the benefits and rewards of their labor. The result was that the greatest and free-est nation in the history of the world was birthed, and in a really short period of time that colony grew into what would become the United States of America and would rapidly become the most powerful and prosperous nation in the history of civilization. We are rare in that people from all ethnicities, colors, religions, and races make up America. And all are equally endowed by their Creator with life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That alone is plenty of reason to celebrate this holiday and to take time out to offer a sincere prayer of thanks for this God-blessed land.

I have much to be thankful for. A devoted wife. Three grown children. Seven truly extraordinary grandchildren. Lots of friends. A roof over my head. Food on the table, even if thanks to Joe Biden and Congress it costs a lot more this year. And because gasoline was so much more expensive this year, most of us stayed close to home and that was good too.

I hope you made your list of reasons to be thankful as well. And that you expressed your thanks to God, from whom ALL blessings flow!

    Governor Huckabee:

    Thank GOD that we can still celebrate our RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS (for now) which is the bases of THANKSGIVING due to the sacrifices of those who came before us. These FOLKS who want to re-write HISTORY to make it appear that the colonization and eventual formation of the United States was some form of Genocide of the American Indian DOES NOT KNOW REAL HISTORY. The FIRST THANKSGIVING was between the Pilgrims and an Indian Nation that embraced the new found alliance to fight off HOSTILE Indian Nations that would loot their crops and kidnap their women, young girls for sex slaves and kill the men, now that is Genocide. Unfortunately this re-writing of HISTORY has INDOCTRINATED our youth to condemn the founders of this Great Nation and causing a destruction of our HOLIDAYS! I want the THANK YOU and YOUR STAFF for not becoming part of this FALSE HISTORY and promoting TRUTH in your articles. THANKS

    I don't understand Goodwill needing this. Goodwill started in Indianapolis, and growing up nearly ALL my clothes came from their first store. The aunt of a friend, who had been one of the thalidomide babies and only had one arm, was one of the supervisors at the register. In fact, ALL Goodwill did was hire & train disabled individuals and the store was located in one of the poorest areas of the city. So did they wander from this initial mission? Sure sounds like it.
