Happy Day Before Thanksgiving

I want to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving and thank the good Lord for all the blessings in my life. I hear the ACLU or some other organization wants to take God out of this holiday, too. Of course, if you take God out, you have no reason for the holiday, since the Pilgrims came to this country looking for religious freedom, and the first thanksgiving was held to thank God for the blessings He had bestowed upon them.

Of course, they've already taken Christ out of Christmas...businesses, afraid to offend someone, now paint Happy Holidays on their windows instead of Merry Christmas.

Honestly, I don't understand why the few have the right to dictate to the many. If you don't want to say "under God" in the pledge, then don't say it. If you don't want to pray in school, then don't pray, but why stop those who want to say "under God" and pray in school from doing so?

I can't believe the ACLU objected to the tiny cross that was on the L.A. County seal. So L.A. made a new one, and put a mission on it. Of course, they took the cross off, so you can't tell it's a mission. Someone said it looks like a Wal-Mart.

Honestly, it's time for the silent majority to speak up!!!!!!

Sorry for the rant. I came here to wish you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving, and to say GOD BLESS AMERICA.
