Thanksgiving

I need a break.......I have a week off from work and am going to make it a week away from the blog, too....if I can keep away.  There are so many stories worthy of coverage but I know I can count on all of you to do that and I'll try to come by and comment at your blogs.  Have a wonderful week and may God bless you and your family this Thanksgiving week and may He continue to bless America.  I'm so grateful for your frequenting GeeeZ.  It means a lot to me.

I know I speak for Mustang, Elmer's Brother, Pris and Kid, all of us who write for geeeZ, in wishing you the very best.....

It's good to take some downtime every now and then. Enjoy the week!

Enjoy your Thanksgiving break, Z.

conservativesonfire said...

Enjoy your week, Geeez. The problems of America willl still be hear waiting for your input when you get back. We all occaissionally need to step backk and allow our batteries to recharge. God bless!

JonBerg said...

Enjoy your break! Here's looking forward to the return and, by then, there is sure to be plenty of new 'grist' to grind!

FreeThinke said...

A well-deserved rest, I should think.

You will be missed -- but we look forward to your return.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

It's good to be with family and friends on that special day, and always to count our blessings, especially when times are tougher than we'd like.

Hi, everybody...such a luxury to comment and know I don't have to post every night!

I do love posting but with working sometimes 12 hours, it's TOUGH!
The Monday of my return will be approx 11 hours, too...and I DO have to plan for that function this week, and have a ton of other stuff (most of it fun, thank goodness), but thanks for coming by and wishing me a good week off.

see you later!

Have a great week, Z and a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm thankful to have you as a good friend in L.A.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, including the ones I strongly disagree with.

Divine Theatre said...

Have a blessed holiday, my friend. I pray you find renewed strength in God's love.

@Z..

Blessings, Peace, Thanks & Happiness for you.

Joe said...

Have a Thanksgiving filled with the attitude of gratitude...as I know you will.

Kid said...

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone.

Z, Enjoy your time off. I feel the same way myself.

Impertinent said...

@KID


Ditto....great battle you did with "shawn".

Z said...

"Gazans in survival mode" is the headline on Yahoo tonight.

I know Israelis who tell me they're bombed regularly and the media doesn't advertise that fact around the world so that sympathy for Palestinians stays high. WHY? What does the media have to gain?

Yup...so Americans who don't know the truth, think "Gazans, those POOR SOULS...those darned Jews are bombing them, how horrible" Ya, except that Jews have this ALL THE TIME...like weekly...year after year so where's the sympathy?

These recent problems are obviously a stepping up of hostilities but it reminds me of how we saw France in flames a few years ago because Arabs were burning cars in Paris; when, having lived there, I knew that cars burn EVERY SINGLE NIGHT in the suburbs around Paris.

The media's so in the bag for terrorists and against Israel it's unbelievable.

Then there are black congresswomen calling McCain shameful and racist because he disagrees with Susan Rice's behavior, and he waited till WE KNEW SHE WASN'T TELLING THE TRUTH THAT THEY"D KNOWN AT THE WH FOR ABOUT FIVE DAYS before he said anything.....

REALLY? Is THIS the left in America now? Is this a contrived racism that they're promoting?

You can't criticize a black person without being RACIST?

Is the wonderful and black Michael Meyers of the NY Civil Rights Coalition RACIST? By the way...email his group; I did about 2 years ago telling him how much I admired his objectivity and he wrote me back right away. Fabulous guy. HE is what we need to really solve race relations or at least get them back to before Obama started stirring the pot (oops..sorry, it's those mean old racist Republicans who vote for Alan West who've stirred the pot, right? :-)

see? I just stay away from you guys on this blog!!!


Thanks for your VERY kind words/comments...xxx

Z - Enjoy your time off and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone on Z's blog.

Impertinent said...

Allen West Conceded.

Gotta keep dem upstart, unka toms out of the CBC, ya know.

Kid said...

Z, Exactly. The media are for the terrorists. Cowardice? Figure they'll be eaten last? Think the world can be fixed using some kindergarten view of reality. Supports their boy obama? Probably all of the above.

So, the pali's are wanting to talk cease fire because their leadership is being blown to smithereens, and watch that 274 year old vampire hilrod clinton take credit for it because of her diploooooooooomacy.

Good God.

Kid said...

IMP, Thanks. on shawn, Yea, make it real or go away.

PS - as far as moving out, if it gets to the point I'm being eaten alive by parasites, I'll be very seriously looking at another country.

Z said...

Sue, thanks very much. Am enjoying my time off, that's for sure.
Had a little computer help today and more's coming so I'm much happier back on my bigger monitor and with a larger keyboard.


Imp, Yahoo News has been saying "Alan West FINALLY concedes" (emphasis mine)...ya, FINALLY, as if "you believe that guy?"

The media stops at nothing and grabs every chance it can to demean those whose character is too good for them to grasp and appreciate.
Finally. Ptui

Kid, this is the scenario: For the first time, an American president will get things calmed down and Obama will win another Nobel...wait for it.
Or, as you suggest, Hillary will. If she does, let's hope she gets a haircut.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Z!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Bloviating Zeppelin said...

Have a great Thanksgiving, and have a very nice vacation away from the things that task and vex you.

Just a thought and perhaps some prayers for those who protect us daily, with no holidays extant: our American soldiers, and our domestic Law Enforcement officers and emergency responders:

There are no holidays for us, in truth. Even at my age.

Z said...

I'm reading your comments and wondering what I ever did to deserve THE BEST commenters EVER.
I'm blessed and cherish so many of you.

God bless you all..this Thanksgiving and always.

Have a great one, and a great week off.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all. May you have a wonderful day!

just a reminder of one of the first true miracles to happen in the early days of America..please see Ed's blog!

this is disheartening...better to have no job than less benefits; why not, when you can get a hand-out from the state?

sad.


Well, we wish that type of thinking a Happy Thanksgiving, too...


i guess. :-)

Impertinent said...

@Z

"this is disheartening...better to have no job than less benefits.."

Look at the bright side...a union just got crushed...18,500 morons were sold out by their union...and that union will be missing monthly dues from those idiots who are now...unemployed.

Who ever buy the pieces...won't have a crummy union shop....they'll be replaced by illegal "dream" brats.

Kid said...

IMP - Don't read this until tomorrow ;-)

Taxpayers will likely be on the hook for the Hostess employee pensions.

The unions are eating us alive man. Now they have their own dictator at the helm and majority in the Senate once again.

Hope your Thanksgiving is blessed with family, friends, and great food!

At the top of my list is my hubby. I am so thankful for him, that I met my soul mate, married him and have been happy every day since.

Happy Thanksgiving

Z said...

Thanks, BetteJo.

Debbie...cherish him; this is my third Thanksgiving without my wonderful Mr. Z....it doesn't get too much easier.
But, I'm doing really well, considering. I know he'd be VERY VERY proud of me and that's something I'm very thankful for.

Z said...

and, the way, if Debbie comes back and reads my response, I don't at all feel badly about your comment; I welcome it.
Every spouse should feel the way you do about your husband. I sure did. And so I hope your comment, on this Thanksgiving, reminds all of you with husbands and wives still well and with you how lucky you are.
Sometimes we forget to voice our thanks for the most obvious things, like the fact that your spouse goes to work for you, cooks for you, thinks of you all the time...don't we.

Cherish them, friends...it's the biggest gift EVER.

Jan said...

…and in addition to all the other blessings

you have conferred on my reflective frame

I wish to thank you, Lord,

for the companionship of steadfast comrades

whose wit and wisdom and strength

help steer me through these tempestuous seas

of flattery and lies churned to fury by the ill will of demagogues.

And thanks to you, Z, and to all of my fellow sojourners here.

I hope this has been a wonderful day of Thanksgiving for you all.

xoxo

Z said...

Jan, thank you for that PERFECT prayer.

I hope you had a marvelous Thanksgiving...I sure did. 34 of us and pictures will be at my food blog very soon... it was GORGEOUS and DELICIOUS!


My earnest and sincere thanksgiving for ALL of you.

Listen good all you Dummy Repubs. Barack Obama is the US President... Live with it or leave!

Z said...

Anonymous, thanks for reminding us why we're not liberals.
Very gracious comment on a Thanksgiving post...does it make you feel good?

I think it's you who'll be very surprised and upset when you hear what's up for you under another four years of a president like Obama.

If only more people had understood how silly it is to believe the mischaracterizations of the left; Republicans want people with healthcare,they just don't think this awful new plan will work. Do the math, please before you vote next time! It's SO important to be informed.
And remember, you're a party that bought into "repubs are racist" even as we championed many black and hispanic candidates...
So, I think THINKING is a valid part of VOTING, huh?

I could go on, but I'll leave it here; wait for the shock. Sadly, you dragged US into the mess, too.

I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
