Bloviating Zeppelin: Giving Thanks

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Giving Thanks

For what am I thankful on this, a purposeful day of Thanksgiving? Why, that would be:

  • I am thankful that, despite the hard years of abuse, I am among the living, can still stand erect;
  • I am thankful for the rock-solid support and dedicated love of my incredible wife;
  • I am thankful my father is still alive, has left the hospital and is back in his nursing home;
  • I am thankful that I have a job where they need me more than I need them
  • I am thankful that I have a modest cabin that I have completely redesigned by myself;
  • I am thankful that I live amidst the natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains;
  • I am thankful that, when all things were considered and done, I lived the life I chose, plotted my own path, hitched my star to no one else's, was beholden to no one and yet, in my own small way, became successful in a venue where I originally had no reason to be;
  • I am thankful that I had the wondrous opportunity to live my life as a child in the late 50s and early 60s, to have experienced the freedom and naivete that no child can or will enjoy today;
  • I am thankful that I was born with all my limbs, with my mind, complete and functional;
  • I am thankful that I was born of American parents of The Greatest Generation;
  • And I am thankful that I was born in an American hospital on United States soil;
  • This nation being, of course, the last and best hope for the entire planet.
God bless you and your family, my dear readers, on this day of thanks.

Thank you for continuing to frequent my blog, for believing in me, for coming back day after day, for being, in truth, My Dearest Readers.

Live long and prosper.
