Solari Update: What Ever Happened to Thanksgiving?

Solari Update: What Ever Happened to Thanksgiving?

"In everything give thanks"
-- 1st Thessalonians 5:18

A note from Catherine:

This Thursday, there is no Solari Report. The next report will be a pre-recorded report with Jon Rappoport on November 29th. I invited the newest member of our team, Solari Report producer Kristen Linton, to write a special blog post to celebrate this Thanksgiving. I hope you will take the time to enjoy this wonderful season and contemplate our many blessings. On behalf of all the members of the Solari Team..... Happy Thanksgiving!

By Kristen Linton, "What Ever Happened to Thanksgiving?"

It's easy to forget about Thanksgiving. On November 1 you find yourself at the Target walking past a display rack of synthetic wigs, face paint, fangs, and witches hats which have found their way to the front of the store at prices marked down 50%. As you scurry past the mountains of enticingly priced, high-fructose corn syrup pumped sweets (why do you still have trouble resisting them even after watching numerous documentaries about the poisons they contain?) you find yourself singing along to Elvis Presley's "Blue Christmas". Suddenly you shake your head in an Etch-A-Sketch motion and wonder aloud "Wait a minute! What ever happened to Thanksgiving?"

As good American capitalists, we are trained to consume. Consume candy candy candy. Get all hopped up on treats and buy glow-in-the-dark fingernails, Mitt Romney masks, princess gowns, skeletons, and plastic spiders. Once that consumption is over, the push for the holiday sell is on. It's time to buy the Christmas necessities: Santa hats, reindeer headbands, and inflatable snow globes for your lawn. All of this has me wondering: What does Thanksgiving have to offer?

Find out at the blogpost!

Thank you! Give thanks and praise!

Trying to Keep Your E-Mails Secret When the C.I.A. Chief Couldn't
If David H. Petraeus couldn't keep his affair from prying eyes as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, then how is the average American to keep a secret?

Granted, most people don't have the Federal Bureau of Investigation sifting through their personal e-mails, but privacy experts say people grossly underestimate how transparent their digital communications have become
