An Obama Thanksgiving.

Or is that Thankstaking?

I think that is "Redistributing the Wealth" which leaves the family STARVING while Obama walks out with the food that he will give away to those who will THANK OBAMA for the food, who then will gladly VOTE for him.

What are Obama's exact words on that? In a campaign speech on July 13, 2012, in Roanoke, Virginia, he said

"If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help. There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you've got a business—you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen."

In other words, the government giveth, and the government take away what they giveth. Be grateful on this Thanksgiving that they let you live relatively unmolested, for now.

That cartoon has more truth than most people know. The Pilgrims were starving because of socialism, because of redistribution:

"The experience that was had in this commone course and condition, tried sundrie years, and that amongst godly and sober men, may well evince the vanitie of that conceite of Platos and other.ancients, applauded by some of later times; -that the taking away of propertie, and bringing in communitie into a comone wealth, would make them happy and florishing; as if they were wiser then God. For this comunitie (so farr as it was) was found to breed much confusion and discontent, and retard much imployment that would have been to their benefite and comforte. For the yong-men that were most able and fitte for labour and servise did repine that they should spend their time and streingth to worke for other mens wives and children, with out any recompence."

The great lesson of Thanksgiving, that should be mentioned at every Thanksgiving feast, is that SOCIALISM DOESN'T WORK!
