Serendipper is correct on this.

"We" will have to change that.
A culture that doesn't know its father is adrift.
A culture that doesn't know its children is a vagabond.
We're no longer that, the world has gotten too small to roam.

Thanksgiving could be taken as the self-valuing festival to self-valuing of the enterprising wold. Festivals are required, the right kind. They start with the feeling of home, inevitable facts. The hearth, it is time to kindle it.

Agreed 100%


Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. It just makes sense, somehow.

Odin’s Blood will run in my cup tomorrow. That is thanks giving right there, but a feast among equals.

Yes.



All hail all true gods and goddesses. Especially the human ones.

Thanksgiving is mine too. Lots of food and I like the Fall of the year. The rest of the holidays are pains in the ass.

We had festivals in OH where I used to live.  They were Polish, Hungarian, and German.  It was occasion to get drunk, eat sausages and funnel cake.  Not much was educational about it unless one drank too much, then he received a good lesson.

The problem is that no one really identifies as anything since we're all mixed up.  There is no one who is all German or Polish or Dutch and seemingly everyone has some Irish in him (The Mc's really got around).  Lots of people claim to have Native American even when they don't simply because they think it's cool to boast about it.

I don't particularly care for the Natives since I've read too much about them and have met a few, but most Americans see them as proud, noble, strong people who were victimized by the white man.  I don't want to speak ill of anyone, but the worst enemy I could imagine is an Irish Native mix.  That's the pitbull terrier of the humans.  Not in terms of strength, but meanness.  Note Conor McGregor but with a grudge.

America really is the melting pot and that's why not much attention is given to heritage.  So I suppose it's predictable to project that view onto Europe with the assumption that all Europeans are basically the same, like Americans.

Really nice perspective on that, I’d have to agree.

We will never give up our guns. Nor our gun rights.

Fuck these mind controlled kids. Worthless trash of subhumanity.

There is a limit to how far these fuckers behind the scenes can pull strings. Reality is not pleased.

To all the cabals: get on the right fucking page you scum shit. Or see what happens when reality grows tired of your utter bullshit.

No, not a chance that Americans will give up their guns.

There is a gun for each citizen in the US, and thats just what is registered.

This 1 to 1 ratio nicely speaks to the fact that guns are part of the American self-valuing.
