The proclamation goes on to call Thanksgiving Day "a unique national tradition we all share" that unites people as "thankful for our common blessings."
"This is a time for us to renew our bonds with one another, and we can fulfill that commitment by serving our communities and our Nation throughout the year," it continues.
All other presidential Thanksgiving proclamations directly refer to "God," "Providence," or another appellation for the divine being.
But Obama's historic decision to avoid directly mentioning God in the Thanksgiving proclamation doesn't necessarily come as a surprise. Earlier this year Obama similarly made history on Inaguration Day by explicitly referencing "non-believers" in his speech, which, according to USA Today, was the first time in history that a President had done so."
Yeah, well, you know what they say when you're ashamed of God.
Good luck with that.
Michelle also had a Thanksgiving message - A one day pass to eat whatever we want.
Here are the wondrous statements from Mrs Messiah, at the end of this UPI article.
Michelle Obama said it's fine to eat what you want on Thanksgiving. "Don't worry about how much you eat. Just enjoy it," she said. "This is the time. Have pie."
Got that? We could have eaten anything that we wanted last Thursday! Why? Because Michelle said we could, that's why! Wow! I wonder if that applied to trans-fats! Does that mean that Happy Meals, with toys, returned to California McDonalds?
Then she said, "have pie". Next thing you know, she'll be saying "let them eat cake!" Oh, joy!!
But... on a serious note, Thanksgiving is over! Does that now mean we cannot eat what we want? Does anyone realize how arrogant these statements are?
I can't wait until these two turkeys are out of our White House!
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel shall come to Thee Oh Israel.
