...and that's good ol' Tom Turkey coming round to the dinner table! Get ready to spin that lazy Susan- we're having a full throttle feast!

Now I know you must all be wondering, "What the heck is a Thanksgiving topic doing on the political section?" Well I'll throw you a line, with a few simple holiday-related questions. Most importantly, don't forget to restate your answer. Now get gobbling!

1. Given the religious connotations surrounding Thanksgiving, should it really be considered a national holiday? Explain.

2. Let's think about our Japanese friends. They celebrate Labor Thanksgiving Day on Novemnber 23rd every year. What is the correlation between that and Liberia 1820? What about Thanksgiving Day?

3. Do you think that Thanksgiving has beginning to start a trend of early Christmas shopping?

4. Let's look back on the Turkey pardon. Is Turkey Hill all that it's cracked up to be?

*Critical Thinking* Please provide 6-8 sentences describing

5. There has been rumor going around that the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade will be cancelled next year, and so on, due to the clogging of city streets. There is speculation that there may be rioting as a result of this cancellation. What do you think will or would be the outcome of this hazardous situation? Is it really fair to the people to cancel the parade? What significance does a parade have to offer?



Wow, that was a mouthful! I doubt you'll even dare to take on one of them. Well, I better get back to my boat. Gravy boat, that is! Happy Thanksgiving from me, baseball777 to you, ______!
In 1492
Columbus sailed the ocean, too
He had three ships and left from reign
He sailed through sunship, wind, and rain (...)

Wow. That's all I gotta say, just wow. This has got to be, by far, my favorite holiday. And why not? It celebrates everyone's favorite explorer: Christopher Columbus! I just can't believe some people discredit him for the like of that old nut job, Zheng He. Some people are just ignorant.

On this wholesome family holiday, I would like to bestow a questionnaire regarding it, and the values it teaches us in day-to-day life.

Here are a few key-terms to keep us focused:

Pinta
Santa Maria
Squanto
Christopher Columbus
Scurvy
Mutiny
Great Britain
Vitamin C

1. Do you believe knowledge of past explorers should be a requirement for the right to vote?

2. From a political stance, would it be considered unnecessary for Columbus Day to be a national holiday? If not, why? If so, please explain.

It would be helpful if you would "echo" the question. Thank you, and I hope you enjoyed your holiday. :)

All right. This has been making me very cross lately, and it's something I have wondered all my twenty-one years of life: Why are there no lower-case numbers? Letters get all the pizzazz. They get to be big, small, bold, italicized, underlined, so many things. They remind me of Barbie, who can be whatever she god damn wants. And you know what? I say boo to people who shit on Barbie, saying she's a bad role model. Oh my fucking god. She teaches kids that they can be whatever they want, to pursue their dreams. That you're not stupid because you're pretty, you're smart and can have a wicked cool occupation instead of being a polecat. You know what I'm saying here? Numbers should be more like Barbie. People would like them more if they were that way. It's a real shame. Those numbers must be sad and envious of letters. Especially the fact that there are only ten of them, and twenty-six letters. It's as if they got so annoyed with numbers that they were just like,"Fuck it! Just fuck it! I'm sick of making these stupid things. Let's stop right here! Ten of these shits is enough!" You know?
