Thanksgiving in Tragic Loss

Nov. 28, 2015  By Jack Jodell, American Dissident (in association withrge gifted writer BURR DEMING, creator of and chief author over at the brilliant blog site Fair and Unbalanced. com – see my Blogroll at the lower right hand column of this page).

How can we give thanks, as patriots mourn a rejection of national ideals?
History’s quiet heroes provide one answer. This election is nothing…now let’s get to work!”

About jackjodell53

I am an American Dissident trapped in a country where poor and middle class people are constantly being exploited and lied to by a very rigid and conservative plutocratic elite. I believe in government OF, FOR, and BY the people, not one controlled as it now is by corporations and special interests.
