LA Times: First Thanksgiving Got It Right

By Remy Benoit

BRAVO to the LA Times Editorial for taking a stand and reminding us of the negative potential of fear, and yes, scapegoating.

From the LA Times at Reader Supported News First Thanksgiving Got It Right.

It might be a good idea for all of those touting our precious Constitution to actually sit down and read it.

It is a good time to remember why all those "illegal" immigrants, for the most part our ancestors, came here via a hellish sea voyage.
The key word there is freedom, mostly religious freedom.

It might be a good idea to actually look at what happened economically and place the blame where it really belongs, with Bush and company.

It might be a good idea to ask why so many millions of dollars went into elections, and who funneled them there.

It might be a good idea to search for truth instead of swallowing and disseminating fear and hatred.

It might be a good idea to recall that you have the freedom to seek the truth rather than to swallow the big lie.

It might be a good idea to protect that freedom with truth rather than undermine it with hatred.

A Blessed, and compassionate, Thanksgiving.
Miz' Remy
