I know, I know, I post this same video every year. However, Burroughs wrote this in 1986, and it's still spot on. Actually, it might be more pertinent in these partisan days of Glenn Beck and a "wholesome" white America. In fact, if I may, I'm going to humbly add my own Thanksgiving verses of appreciation...
Thanks for the Tea Party, and the perpetuation of "stupid" as an American ideology.
Thanks filibusters and assurance that nothing gets done in our government.
Thanks for fighting against gay marriage, and the vigilance it requires to protect the "sanctity of heterosexual marriages." Everyone knows that it's the anatomy of whom you lie with in bed that determines the level of your love.
Thanks for squawking about health care reform. Only the white or the wealthy or the educated or the employed deserve the basic human decency of being treated when they're sick.
Thanks for The New York Yankees.
Thanks for Fox News, and the perpetuation of "stupid" as an American ideology.
Thanks for reading my blog...no, seriously. Thanks.
