    Aaannddd….if you live in Washington D.C., besides having your guests PCR tested in the garage while being served snacks, DC Public Schools has an idea about how to celebrate once you are allowed inside the house

    In a message sent to DCPS families on Tuesday, November 23, Chancellor Lewis D. Ferebee states that “Thanksgiving is a day that can be difficult for many to celebrate as we reflect on the history of the holiday and the horrors inflicted on our indigenous populations. If you celebrate, our Equity team has shared resources for how you can consider decolonizing your Thanksgiving.“

    Thanksgiving Day in the Hurtgen Forest 75 Years Ago

    Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 23, 1944: more dreary freezing rain saturated the Hurtgen forest. Rhineland rivers overflowed their banks, and U.S. Army vehicles skidded on muddy roads. War-weary 26th Regiment infantrymen — many of whom had been in near-constant combat since the Normandy landing in June — spent this soggy day crouched in their foxholes, as always, on alert.

    Also on this day, several combat patrols captured exhausted German soldiers willing to be taken prisoner and shipped out to the comfort and protection of one of 511 POW camps in America. The prisoners were brought to the company command post, where they were temporarily put to work as stretcher bearers hauling numerous American dead and wounded to evacuation vehicles.

    Before those on patrol returned to their foxholes, they were instructed to spread the word that every GI on the line would receive a hot turkey dinner. Most of the GI’s didn’t even realize it was Thanksgiving.

    Good afternoon and Happy Thanksgiving! to all who celebrate it.

    There is no such celebration of Thanksgiving in England however. The people that remained in England in 1620 managed to continue to feed themselves, albeit with boring British food.

    Those brave pioneers that sailed to The New World without a plan of how to survive were saved from certain death, due to starvation, by those nice Indians.

    Several centuries later the Indian population was almost completely wiped out by John Wayne…

    Also, I have studied American history thoroughly and I have discovered something significant which is not acknowledged by other historians.

    Why is there a difference in the spelling of so many words between English English and American English?

    Well I have the answer. The difference started in 1620 when the Mayflower set sail, followed by Speedwell. Most of the passengers traveled in the Mayflower with the smaller ship, the Speedwell, used for baggage and other items that would be useful. However after a couple of unsuccessful attempts eventually the Mayflower set sale alone leaving the Speedwell behind.

    The two ships began the voyage on 5 August 1620, but Speedwell was found to be taking on water, and the two ships put into Dartmouth in Devon for repairs. On the second attempt, Mayflower and Speedwell sailed about 100 leagues (about 300 nautical miles (560 km; 350 mi)) beyond Land’s End in Cornwall, but Speedwell was again found to be taking on water. Both vessels returned to Dartmouth in Devon. The Separatists decided to go on to America on Mayflower.[1]

    So there you have it. The reason American spelling of many words is still incorrect to this day.

    They packed the dictionary onboard the Speedwell.

    Speedwell’s replacement, Fortune, eventually followed, arriving at Plymouth Colony one year later on 9 November 1621 bringing the dictionary.

    By then it was too late and American English had been born…..

    Hey just wait until you hear my theory about 1776 and the fact it was not about taxation without representation but slavery.

    The basis for my thesis. The people of Boston objected to paying taxes on tea. That may be correct but….

    They then stole the tea, meaning they got it for free! No paying tax, or even paying for it.

    Then, after getting the tea for nothing what did they do?

    Throw it away.

    Nah, 1776 was about more than taxes on tea.

    Another interesting fact you will not see, or I have not seen it, Black people in the UK calling out for reparations for slavery.

    About 3-4% of the UK population is black.

    Most, if not all, black persons living in the UK are descendants of people who came to the UK by choice. ( not including the recent influx of ” refugees ” which is causing much of the current racial tension in the UK )

    Up until the mid 80’s I think ANYONE who lived in ANY of the former British colonies, now called the Commonwealth ( Yep many countries that are now independent nations still want to be part of the team ) also had the right to abode in the UK.

    If Aussie Infidel still has a very old passport it may say that on there..

    @ Bunk Five Hawks X:
    Rhyming slang is a London thing. Apples and pears = stairs. Shortened to apples as in ” I am tired, time to go up the apples ”

    My pieces are sore, as in pieces of meat = feet.

    As you can see sometimes cockney rhyming slang goes down to two levels or more.

    I am not from London. To me it is stupid.

    Tickety-boo seems to be a remnant from the British colonial times in India. tickety-boo may be a holdover from the Raj, from Hindi ṭhīk hai “It’s all right,” or ṭhīk hai, bābū “It’s all right, Sir.” Tickety-boo entered English in the first half of the 20th century. That seems plausible.

    Many words in the English language are derived from colonial times. The one that springs to mind is shampoo.

    It seemed like a new era was dawning in Sweden on Wednesday when Magdalena Andersson, the leader of the center-left Social Democratic Party, became the country’s first female prime minister.
    Ms. Andersson, 54, announced that she was the new prime minister in a Facebook statement a little before 10 a.m. local time on Wednesday. A little after 4:30 p.m. the same day, she released a second Facebook statement announcing her resignation.

    NYT calls the Social Democratic Party “center-left.”

    Dr. Ding says BAD BAD BAD DOMINANT DOMINANT DOMINANT about new ‘Vid Variant.

  49. lobo91
    50 | November 26, 2021 2:02 pm

    On Friday evening, the World Health Organization said the new variant was “of concern” and gave it the name Omicron. “This variant has a large number of mutations, some of which are concerning,” the W.H.O. said in its official description. “Preliminary evidence suggests an increased risk of reinfection with this variant, as compared to other” variants.

    Earlier on Friday, the European Commission proposed that its member countries activate the “emergency brake” on travel from countries in southern Africa and other countries affected to limit the spread of the new variant.

    “All air travel to these countries should be suspended until we have a clear understanding about the danger posed by this new variant,” Ursula von der Leyen, the president of the European Union’s executive arm, said in a statement. “And travelers returning from this region should respect strict quarantine rules.”

    I thought travel restrictions were racist? Particularly restrictions against people from Africa

    Hello, I’ve been gone all day doing the CAR TRIP TO HELL to Gatlinberg more about that later.

    Anyhoo, Dr Malone was on Bannon this morning and from early studies, yes, this new variant is a bitch on wheels. At the top of the spike is a little hat-like thingy that attaches to ACE (inhibitors?) and interferes with the bodie’s ability to produce antibodies. Too soon to tell if the so-called vaccines are any help, probably not, but natural immunity of the previously infected may be a bit safer. AND it seems the ‘vaccines’ currently in use had some role in creating this darling creature.

    The good thing to see is that finally the White House stomped on Fauci.

    My sister decided she had to have some moonshine from this distillery in Gatlinburg. Gatlinburg isn’t that far away, a little over an hour and you can take a route thru the Smokey Mountains that is just a gorgeous drive. So we did. And hit the traffic backup from SATAN. It turns out Gatlinburg is a tourist trap and the day after Thanksgiving every spawn on the planet was headed there. A drive that should have been no more than 2.5 (both directions total) hours was 6. Traffic was backed up halfway to Nashville. AND we had the heathen beagles with us – who are now totally traumatized.

    The other thing I learned about Tennessee is that – you actually can get moonshine here. I had 2 sips of something called White Lightening and guess what? It’s white lightening! I have decided to sit down.

    Not smarter.

    It easy to look smart when your opponent keeps changing his tune and expecting the folks to forget what he said just a few months back.

    The virus is doing what viruses do (always) they try to survive by NOT killing off their hosts and making it easier to pick up the virus, thus maximizing their chances of surviving. Mutations are the name of the game for viruses.

    It’s when ‘experts’ and I use that term advisedly, try to play by the rules of the virus, rather than hitting it hard from several different directions giving it no chance of mutating throughout a population.

    Why would these ‘experts’ do that knowing the rules by which viruses operate? The sad story is a combination of hidden agendas, professional stand over tactics including professional threats and pandering to insiders who are in it for the $$$$s.

    That 1918 virus came back from two knockouts and KO’d the world on the third run then threw in the towel. (reading that idiom book has affected me like a virus)

    @ lobo91:
    I’ve heard that Africa is under vaccinated.

    And that the covid is mostly over there.

    It looks a lot like a skinny country fights off the virus the best.

    The virus is natures rule on getting fit. A skinny country would be wise to ban all physical interactions with a fat country.

    I am really happy that billions of people took an experimental substance that caused their own body to manufacture the so called “spike protein” and then their bodies developed antibodies to attack and defeat this alien “spike” that their own bodies manufactured.

    The planet is saved!!!!!

    Oh dear. The spikey thingy on Covid-19 changed.

    Let us start again. Lockdowns, masks, stop international travel.

    So why does Measles vaccines provide life long immunity? Does the Measles virus not mutate?

    Well yes the Measles virus is as primitive and as faulty at replicating as all other viruses. So defective copies ( a.k.a mutations ) of Measles viruses do occur and the immune system attacks the mutations because the immune system attacks anything that even looks like or smells like it may be Measles. Because the immune system has been exposed to, and is on the lookout for, all parts of a Measles virus. Its eyes, ears, lips, asshole and other Measly parts. Not just its spike.

    Yeah I did look this up months ago. Measles does mutate.

    But unless a Measles virus managed to mutate into something that would escape detection, such as turning into a daffodil or tulip for example, then once immune always immune.

    Only “vaccine” for covid is a dead and mushed up covid virus.

    On a side note, did you notice how I sneakily injected ( pun intended ) tulips into a diatribe about viruses?

    @ darkwords:
    That is another study mentioning Ivermectin as a possible reason.

    In Africa it is normal to take anti-parasite meds just like it is normal in the USA to give dogs heart worm meds.

    yeah, nobody has brought up the idea that Africa has a high ivermectin use to stave off their indigenous bugs so that would have been protective against the ‘original’ bug. But nobody has asked/talking about its properties against this ‘Nu’ bug or whatever they’re calling it.

    HA! I have auto-immune hepatitis. I drink alcohol VERY rarely. Except for this bit of a taste I think it’s been about 4 years….and that was just to taste something or other I don’t even remember.

    The virus has been isolated, almost a year ago

    SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, was isolated in the laboratory and is available for research by the scientific and medical community.

    One important way that CDC has supported global efforts to study and learn about SARS-CoV-2 in the laboratory was by growing the virus in cell culture and ensuring that it was widely available. Researchers in the scientific and medical community can use virus obtained from this work in their studies.

    more than a year ago. This is Canada, March 2020

    A team of researchers from Sunnybrook, McMaster University and the University of Toronto has isolated severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the agent responsible for the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19.

    Also, there IS an honest-to-god vax in the works from the French, Valneva. How you get it to 3rd stage trials w/o an isolated virus is beyond me.

    from this past October

    Mr President is restricting travel from 7 African countries because they have the new Omicron variant.

    I wonder what he will be doing about travel from the U.K.
