What are you thankful for?

A year ago, we had to dig deep to find things to be thankful for as progressive activists. This year, it's a bit easier.

So, as we start saying goodbye to 2006 and hello to 2007, what are you thankful for?

    It is always Thanksgiving if you live in the USA. Despite our political tribulations.

    I am thankful I am not forced to wear a burka in public. And I am grateful for all the other family stuff, really. And the gathering and meal that I just busted my butt to put together like a NW Martha Stewart.

    It doesn't get any better than this.

    I highly recommend Korbel's Extra Smooth brandy.

    I'm thankful for the technology that was there when I finally decided to stop carping on other people's blogs and websites and decided to start my own.

    Which, by the way is: http://urbanplanningoverlord.blogspot.com/

    Come visit. And carp away (within outer limits, of course)!

    I'm grateful for this website and the opportunity to read a reasonably diverse set of opinions, something that is distinctly not possible over at Portland Indymedia thanks to their censorship and ideological bullying.

    I'm thankful I have so many things to be thankful for.

    I'm thankful that about 30 years ago people like Paul Erlich were raising the issue of population growth. had they not done that, and had we not had American presidents supporting international family planning efforts, we'd be living on a planet with about 3 billion more people on it. I'm thankful that I'm living during this period of time rather than fifty years from now.

    And, I'm thankful to live in such a beautiful place with a lot of really wonderful people. I'm thankful to have my health and to be able to come home to a house that has heat. I'm thankful for the growing organic food movement and the ability to eat food that hasn't been sprayed or toxified. I'm thankful that the Democrats somehow managed to take back the House and Senate and particularly that we took the Oregon State House. I'm thankful that I get to live in a place that's feeling a bit more hopeful these days.

    SAVE DEMOCRACY, VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT!!

    I'm thankfull for an America that woke-up and took notice to their freedoms being eroded, their form of government being eroded, and a Republican power grab that has crippled the greatest human experiment in history!

    I'm not satified, or complacant, I would be on the Democrats back relentlessly to follow through, and on the offensive to retain the presidency in '08 as our nation will not restore her greatness, or honor, and rights until we have the levers of power long enough to undo the damage done.

    Happy Thoughts;

    Dan Grady
