Sardonic Thanks-- 16 things to be somewhat thankful for

Here are some things to be thankful for:

-The losses in the Iraq occupation have not been in excess of 50,000 as they were in Vietnam, or over 500,000 as they were in WWII.

-The dollar has not YET been replaced by the Euro by the WTO or the Oil traders.

-With Fascists in control of the Whitehouse, the terrorists have chosen to wait until less anti-democracy Democrats take power, so they can send the message that terrorists prefer to attack liberals. That will help the fascist right wing forces to take back the USA, thereby accelerating the collapse of democracy in the USA.

-thankful that we still have the right to discuss the crimes-against-humanity corporatists and neocons who are happy when democracy is attacked, joyful when the middle class is crushed. Matter of fact, there ought to be a name for people who commit crimes against humanity. They are not necessarily war criminals. What would we call them? Inhuman criminals?  Antihuman criminals?

-We can still, at least for this holiday season, still afford a lot of lead paint coated, cheap Chinese crap that has been produced by slave laborers who have put tens of thousands of Americans out of work and whole American industries out of business. We can thank Bill Clinto for signing up with the Globalist WTO and NAFTA, thus selling out those workers and industries.

-We can be thankful that right wing democrats like Hillary have not yet ruined the word PROGRESSIVE yet, like they helped to ruin the word liberal. We do need to be sure that we make it clear that she is no effing way a progressive.

-We have to be thankful that the rest of the industrialized world is as short sighted as the US, when it comes to the failure to develop renewable, alternative energy resources. Oh. Yeah. I forgot about Brazil. Make that except for Brazil. But hey, they're not a part of G-8. What the heck, they're barely beyond banana republic and they have some left wing leader. Why pay attention to them?

-We can still decide which channel we want to watch on the TV. Pretty much most of the programming is crap, but we get to choose which crap we watch. But... it's profitable crap, so it's okay, right?

-There are only about 420 days left of Bush Cheney control of the Whitehouse. What could go wrong?

-That turkey you'll be eating, unless it's free-range, or tofu, will be loaded with antibiotics and possibly, hormones. And you don't even have to get a prescription. What a bargain.

-We have no-calorie democrats running the congress. They're in power, but they don't cause any weight gain, nor any democracy or freedom or impeachment or ending of war gain. They can vote as much as they want and nothing gets done. But they think that by doing nothing, they'll avoid looking like they are wasting their time. Go figure.

--Scott McClellan admitted he lied for Bush, Cheney, Rove, Libby and Card. If only he'd told the American people and the prosecutor. But his book doesn't come out 'til April, so maybe there will be more revelations, maybe enought for Nancy off-the-table Pelosi to put impeachment back on the table.

--Newsweek, the news magazine I've subscribed to for over 30 years, now has a real progressive-- Markos Dailykos Moulitsas. But it also has Karl Rove. Actually, that's not bad. We'll get to see the thinking of what of those anti-human crimes against humanity types on a weekly basis. Too bad he'll get paid for it.

-There's still a month and a half for the worst of the presidential candidates on both sides to crash, with the sure to be seen attacks amping up and the MSM certain to attack, with "high rotation" flashes of three second embarassing images of the candidates who they feel most threatened by.
