Who needs Thanksgiving. That's so 20th century. This year, stores were open before Thanksgiving was over.. the gravy was still coagulating when door buster deals went up for grabs. People formed lines for gadgets and gizmos, and most likely left dirty plates and turkey bones in the sink.. This is how you shop in the modern era. There may be a return policy on the item, but will there ever be a return to sanity again? Nah! There's just too much to buy and too little time to labor our mind with such questions..

Hope you gobbled without a hobble and wobble

Thanksgiving is over..
Shopping will begin.
Don't lose yourself,
Or the spirit within.

I would say this is the best meal of the year..Seriously great food, great family, great fun.. Great thanks. 

Sure, we have this silly notion that Thanksgiving is about Pilgrims and Natives sitting at a table enjoying a meal. That may have happened but it wasn’t until Abraham Lincoln that this whole thing even became a national holiday, and that was after a big social campaign to have him do it during the Civil War. And yes,some even think there is a much darker and more sordid history of Thanksgiving than one portrayed in history books. We do know there is a pretty rough section of history large not told to young aspiring students in school. America’s government often (and still often does) treated Native Americans with contempt.. White landowners didn’t have their land until a trail of tears forced original settlers off of it. That is the dark history of this nation. One that cannot be ignored. 

But we really cannot change much of that now. can we? 

At this point we can only make sure …

Michio Kaku voices his solar flare fears on Coast to Coast AM

Physicist Michio Kaku was a guest on George Noory's Coast to Coast AM last night.

Kaku quickly directed the conversation towards his fears over solar activity  He told George Noory that he was disturbed by the size and strength of recent solar flares..

Kaku said that the fear  is one of the flares could hit earth and 'all hell could break loose'..

Kaku said it was a matter of time, mentioning that the last big flare happened 150 years when telegraph wires were shorted out. He mentioned that people in Cuba were reading newspaper at night because the Northern Lights went that far South.

In our modern world, Kaku said the satellites would be fried, power plants could go down, and he said it could be worse than 20 Hurricane Katrinas across the planet.. The scary possibility is more possible as the 'maximum' of solar activity is occurring  The sunspot is like a rifle, Kaku said, and the flares are like bullets. "One of these days one of these solar flares is going to h…

Some photos hit hard.. these both did. The innocence of childhood lost during the Israeli/Gaza conflict.. an innocent child's life also lost

Of all of the photos I saw from the Israeli/Gaza back and forth bombings, these both hit me.. A child, innocent, tries to salvage any bit of childhood he can while adults around him act more immature than him.

The fact that a child 'does not understand' war and the world means that the child is more humble and honest than any adult in power..

And in the other photo, an adult cries tears of humanity as he carries a dead child from the rubble after a missile strike.

There are many innocent people that die during warfare... they are the 'collateral damages' often uncounted by governments embroiled in hostility.

That is beyond disrespectful. They are people with lives, hopes, dreams.. and often innocence of childhood. Innocence lost in a second, dead bodies litter the streets..

War across the world. Isn't this season supposed to be one of peace on earth??

Whatever happened to that..

Send in the clowns: Chris Christie's skit on SNL draws tough criticism as his state's residents still suffer in the wake of Hurricane Sandy

You can't please everybody all of the time.
That is exactly what New Jersey Governor Chris Christie realizes today. He appeared on Saturday Night LIVE last night during the 'weekend update' segment with Seth Myers. During the skit, he lampooned people with New Jersey attitudes, his fleece, and made a joke at the expense of the Mayor of Atlantic City.

But the Governor's appearance on the show is drawing fierce criticism.  Front Page Mag is running an article showcasing how New Jersey residents are still suffering while the Governor joked around on comedy TV..

Even more troubling is this: It has been two weeks since Hurricane Sandy struck the East Coast. And tonight, this cold Sunday evening, there are still people without power in New Jersey.

A new economic boom in the wedding business

With states either legalizing or considering the legalization of gay marriage, a new monetary fact has entered the equation: Gay marriage may lead to an economic boom for those involved in the wedding business!

Just think of the parties! The decorations! the flowers. The lavish dinners..

A whole new segment of the population can now come out of the dark and enter the mainstream. And have catering companies give them the services that straight couples have had for generations.

And speaking of the advantages that straight couples have.. I would imagine divorce attorneys will undoubtedly have the same windfall that catering companies and the like are going to have.
