The War on Thanksgiving
Dear Producer, Let’s all hope for a good day for donations on tomorrow’s Thanksgiving Day extravaganza. Expect John to relate his traditional True Story of Thanksgiving with all the “fixins.” Perhaps he will even delve into the word of the day “fixins.”
Please join us for a great Thanksgiving Show (where we are actually working, unlike the lazy competition) on this very slow but important day. And you should think “thanks” and “giving” by supporting the show with a contribution of any amount by clicking here.
Tomorrow’s show. It’s gotten to the point where you read a rundown of news stories then see something very odd about Trump and notice that it is CNN and you just skip it completely. This happens a lot to a lot of people. And this will lead to a short discussion tomorrow about killing Thanksgiving and changing it to Friendsgiving.
As shown in the images above,Thanksgiving used to be a patriotic holiday. The change toward an association with Christmas (Black Friday) and football and now Friendsgiving has been slow but steady. Today nobody sees the holiday as traditionally patriotic.
This Friendsgiving idea may stem from family avoidance. There are entire groups of American voters who literally think that Putin is running the country and they do not want to take grief from gramps who voted for Trump.
It’s part of the non-confrontational lifestyle of today’s youth. So let’s skip Thanksgiving. When you dig deep enough concerning all this you will find PETA and the animal rights activists besmirching the eating of Turkey and promoting the soulless meatless Thanksgiving Dinner.
News does indeed slow down during this week, as do donations and listenership. So all we ask of you is any random donation. Or splurge and click here to be the Executive Producer of the Thanksgiving Day No Agenda Special It would look great on any bio or resume or your LinkedIn page.
Sincerely, John C. Dvorak & Adam Curry PS Checks should be sent directly to the No Agenda Show, Box 339, El Cerrito CA 94530. Your support means everything.
