This Thanksgiving we can still reflect on the things that make us hopeful


By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Today is a day for pausing to remember how blessed we are to be here in America the greatest country under the watchful eye of God. Think of your advantages; love your family and let this day renew your resolve to fight to keep the blessings our Founding Fathers gave us.  

While things are as dark and dreary as they have been in our lifetime, there is room for gratitude to God for what we have. We are the people who have made this country what it is. Even though we are facing the worst the liberals can throw at us we have to take stock of what we have and turn our focus toward the future.

We have a system that allows us to change the leadership of our nation – however difficult it may be. We live in a land that offers opportunities not available in the rest of the world.

Even those in poverty here live several levels above the grinding actual poverty seen in so many places around the world.

We KNOW what we are capable of. We know that however far we have been pushed down by those who would destroy America, we can and will bounce back. In just four months after the 2008 election we organized and made ourselves a force that overwhelmed our enemies in 2010. We KNOW we can and must do this again because we are the ones who understand what America is supposed to be.

As you sit at your Thanksgiving table today look around at the young people among you. Look at your children and grandchildren. They are the future and we can see them succeed because no matter what the enemies of freedom do or say, we will eventually prevail.


Proudly bow your head in prayer to the Almighty and praise Him for the blessings He has sent to you.

 Thank him for the United States Military whose war fighters keep us free. Thank Him for the Firefighters and Police Officers that keep us safe each night as we sleep.

Search your heart and you’ll find many reasons to be thankful. It won’t be as easy this year, but we’re Americans, we turn to God at times like this, and He will hear our prayers.

 Those who have spent the last decade or two listening to Rush know that he is adamant about presenting his audience with the true story of Thanksgiving.  “We ordaine that the day of our ships arrival at the place assigned for plantacon in the land of Virginia shall be yearly and perpetually kept holy as a day of thanksgiving to Almighty God,”  reads the 1619 Charter of Berkeley Hundred.  In school we were taught that the Pilgrims gave thanks to American Indians, but Thanksgiving is and has always been a day of giving thanks to God for leading the first settlers safely to the “New World.”

 God Help Us; God Help Our Land; God Help Our Unborn Children; our Servicemen fighting other people’s Wars.  God Help United States Citizens.  Let us grasp hands together today at our Thanksgiving Day tables and pray that America is saved from the District of Corruption, from the Federal Reserve.  We Need You God.

 I thank God for the continued good health, against all odds, of the elders in our family. I am also thankful for having been born in America, a land of infinite possibilities. I am also thankful for the awakening of the TEA party, even though their past apathy, like the Silent Majority before them, allowed these problems to rise and thrive.

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

 James Lewis

 Thanksgiving is a day we express gratitude to God for all of our blessings. Please take time and give thanks and prayers for the best this country has to offer whether they are soldiers in harm’s way, police officers, firefighters, and medical personnel. God bless these heroes and God bless America.

 God told Adam to “subdue the Earth,” discover its elements and beauty; build great things and rejoice in sharing His ongoing creation. Lowly silicon had capabilities we couldn’t even imagine. Be good stewards of our myriad gifts from God. Never return to horse manure and flies teeming on city streets.

 Emma K. Emmett:

 The curses of today may well be the gifts for tomorrow. As painful as it is to watch, I am thankful to see capitalism vs. socialism on display. My prayer is that the most egregious outrages of 2011 will be the enlightenment for hoards of voters in 2012.

Be of good cheer on this Thanksgiving Day

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Today is Thanksgiving Day a time for giving thanks to God for all the good things He has showered upon us and our nation.

Yes, we were badly beaten and sure it would be easy to cynically say, “There is nothing to be Thankful for” but that’s just not the case, because there’s still so much good all around us.

God most certainly loves America.

From the early days of our Revolution, God has blessed and protected Americans as we worked to form His most favored nation. Under God’s watchful eyes our liberties were secured for us by America’s Founding Fathers; patriots who fought and died for us.

For this we must be thankful.

We must be thankful to live in this, the greatest country in the world, because there could be no better nation to start the movement we need to restore those liberties lost on Election Day.

America is still the country the world’s people want to come to.

By God’s grace we have plenty of food and clean water for healthy lives; we have a political system that allows us to regroup speak out and try to win converts to our ideas after such a terrible beating; and we have a financial system that can and will survive this socialist assault.

Even at this darkest hour we must still be thankful to the Lord for all the graces and blessings He has sent us. America is clearly God’s favorite country; so we will succeed in making things right again.

Country, community and family are all of the advantages we need to get the job done. We have them all, thanks to God’s love for America.

Remembering these things should bring us good cheer as we eat a meal so much of the world can only dream about.

Because we have won favor with God America is the jewel of the world’s nations. We can and will survive this temporary swerve to the left. Americans are not socialists and shortly that fact will become apparent. Everything swings from side to side and nothing in politics is permanent. Let’s count our blessings and be ready to do God’s work by righting America when He calls us to duty because that day is coming sooner than we think.
