Today, on this beloved American holiday — when we celebrate the 11,000 loyal patriots who perished on British prison ships during the Revolutionary War — here's hoping you have a festively tall Evacuation Day pole on which to climb.

This Newtsgiving, let's all take some time to consider the bounty of blessings from the former Speaker of the House for which we're thankful.
This exercise will most likely take up most of our day, so let's just say that we'll see you tomorrow.
Have a great Newtsgiving, everyone! Don't eat too much Newtkey.

Conservative blogger Pamela Geller — writing for American Thinker — just unleashed a shocking torrent of Terror across our collective holiday weekend.
You probably thought that you were going to enjoy a nice Christian Thanksgiving with your nice Christian family and your Christian friends in your Christian dining room tomorrow. But then… Surprise, Muslism!
A citizen activist and reader of my website AtlasShrugs.com wrote to Butterball, one of the most popular producers of Thanksgiving turkeys in the United States, asking them if their turkeys were halal. Wendy Howze, a Butterball Consumer Response Representative, responded: "Our whole turkeys are certified halal."…
Across this great country, on Thanksgiving tables nationwide, infidel Americans are unwittingly going to be serving halal turkeys to their families this Thursday. Turkeys that are halal certified — who wants that, especially on a day on which we are giving thanks to G-d for our freedom? I wouldn't knowingly buy a halal turkey — would you? Halal turkey, slaughtered according to the rules of Islamic law, is just the opposite of what Thanksgiving represents: freedom and inclusiveness, neither of which are allowed for under that same Islamic law.
Oh no! I don't want invisible Musliminess all over my Thanksgiving bird! Get it it off! Get it off!
I don't know about you, but went out shopping this past weekend with three very specific prerequisites for my turkey: 1) That it be heterosexual, 2) that it had signed a pledge in opposition to all tax increases prior to its slaughtering, and 3) that it had been brought up in a good God-fearing Lutheran family.
Maybe I'd settle for an Jewish turkey. Maybe. But not like a liberal Jewish intellectual turkey or anything. If it wants to be slaughtered for my family and served with my sister's recipe for raisin and walnut stuffing, it best have had a literalist view of Biblical history, or no dice!
