If you still have family and friends still visiting for Thanksgiving, please spend some time talking… really talking. We spend so much time conversing about nothing… nothing important, babbling. It is time we communicate or we could lose it all!!

We (our society) have been held together by Stuff… Entertainment… Unimportant Diversions! That is why we missed what was going on in America, in our churches, in our own homes.

We are beginning to do everything that Ancient Rome did, before its demise. People have been warning us for years… and we have been too busy… too diverted to care or give it much thought.
“The enjoyment of plenty will make them (the Romans) lose the enjoyment of freedom.” From the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. This is exactly what has happened to us. It is why we didn’t notice what has been going wrong with our country for years!!
Years ago, we did not watch football or TV at all at Thanksgiving. We all sat around and talked about our past, out ideas and our goals, usually with several generation. We learned about our family history, our country’s history and we shared our goal, dreams and fears. And if we did play games or had activities, they were interactive… without electronics.
When Glenn talked about this, I remembered doing exactly this with my family… every year, at every holiday and get-together. We had 3-generations gathered, who talked about their lives, their memories, their dreams, their goals… our/my heritage. And stated their opinions, argued about them and nobody worried about being politically incorrect or a bit contrary.
Last week a viewer sent Glenn Beck a (revolutionary war) coat that she found in a thrift store. It was his Dad’s Coat; it was Bill Beck’s coat that was given away around 1977. She found it in a thrift store shopping for her Vintage Clothing store and mailed it to him, asking for nothing in return. After receiving the coat, Glenn realized that he was exactly where he was supposed to be, that it is not an accident that he is where he is and doing what he is doing.
The coat came from a time where his home town, Mt. Vernon Washington, and its small businesses started dying and closing… because the Malls were putting them out of business. Glenn’s parents started a militia to march in the parade for the bi-centennial but also to stand up… bring some attention to their dying town and cause.
The gal who found Glenn’s Dad’s coat is Amanda Zitch… a single mom who is out of work. She has tapped into her own entrepreneurial spirit and started an online Vintage Store. She says she finds treasures and then passes them on… sells them or tries to return them if they are someone’s personal item, like she did with Bill Beck’s coat.

Owning things is good… Being Owned by Your Things is Not Good
It says in Genesis that it is not good to be alone… that was a prescription for all of us, not just Adam. Part of fulfillment and success is building relationships.

Rabbi Lappin says he loves Christmas because shopping supports the merchants and the economy and at Christmastime almost all the shopping is done for others… gifts and sharing; people generally become better at this time of year… even if they are not Christians.
We have become victims of the media and being “amused”, which is the opposite of being inspired!! Is it an accident? Absolutely not! It is a plan… a plan to keep the masses controlled, uninformed and dumbed down! That process has been ongoing and used by the Progressives for about 100 years now! They dumb us down with additives to the food and in our water, with meds, through an ever lower standard of education that discourages individual thinking and by keeping us distracted with 24/7 TV, video games, twittering, social sites, texting and even lack of sleep by those who feel they can’t turn off their cells to sleep and are awakened all night by every call, text and email (because it is sync’d up to their computer) so get no rest.
