Things I'm thankful for...

With Thanksgiving upon us, I thought I would come up with a list of things I'm thankful for. Some are more serious than others:

-That Bush won the election

-That despite claims to the contrary by some on the left, we live in a country where we are pretty much able to do what we want, say what we want, wear what we want, sleep with whom we want, live where we want, watch and read what we want, worship (or not) how we want, and in general live our lives in a manner that we choose rather than a manner that is decreed by the government. I may complain about high taxes, and think the federal government could reach a little less into certain areas of our lives, but compared to socialist countries or Islamic theocracies, we have it pretty damn good.

-blogging. What would I do with my time without it?

-beer. As Homer (Simpson) said, it's the cause of, and solution to, all of life's little problems.

-the fact that my employer keeps letting me work overtime

-the fact that I have a job, period

-the fact that there are people on eBay who are willing to pay way more than I did for stuff

-my family. They truly are a great bunch of people who care about me, are supportive of me no matter what stupid situation I've gotten myself into, and I owe them a debt I can never repay.

-the fact that there are people willing to join the armed forces, and accept low pay, horrible conditions, and possible serious injury or death, to defend those freedoms I mentioned in the second item of this post
