    Some people don't have families or are so far away that they can't get there, so what are those people supposed to do on Thanksgiving?

    Doesn't mean that's not the way it is. Capitalists like you have diluted Thanksgiving to be about Black Friday, shopping, spending, looking at cellphones. Everything to keep us occupied and ignoring our families.

    I never said what I did yesterday. One of the things I did not do was take time away from my family and being together and enjoying each other's presence to come here and have petty and arrogant arguments with strangers. That, as they say, makes one of us.

    You sure you didn't go to the movies instead and praise the all-mighty dollar?

    Nope. Never left the house other than walk over to the neighbors and have a few drinks. But your assumptions are hilarious, and your arrogance is hysterical, especially considering that your pettiness and anti-spirit yesterday is documented. Pro-tip -- don't get all high and mighty about keeping the spirit sacred, enjoying time only with your family instead of hanging with strangers, when it's beyond doubt that YOU did not.

    How is it beyond doubt? Lol. I must have touched a nerve. Now, I'm more than convinced you probably spent it shopping for the latest deals or enjoying a movie ignoring the family.

    I think the litmus test for "the struggle" is really just this: Do they make a profit? If Yes then they are the enemy.

    Lol. I must have touched a nerve.

    If you can prove that, by all means, do so. In the meantime, here's what you were doing yesterday:

    I can't help but think that this is where extremist left wing multiculturalism has led us. I'm all for understanding and supporting cultural values, morals & traditions or customs as long as what the add to the melting pot is positive or has no negative effect. However, since when is violence against women a tradition, a value or custom? The UN is a dirty ****ing joke. These concessions go against their very own charter. Hang them all.

    Ah, Harshaw being dishonest, what a surprise:

    First post on DP: Yesterday, 12:02 PM
    Last post on DP: Yesterday, 02:22 PM

    So I posted 6 times exactly a 2 hour time span (1.25 posts every half hour) made while I cooked and that discredits claims about spending time with my family? Talk about a stretch. Harshaw, you went through my posting history and forgot to include the time the posts were made? How unlikely for you to be dishonest. Now tell me, how were The Hunger Games?

    I'm dishonest? Where'd you get that from? I didn't log in at all yesterday. If you can find posts from me yesterday, quote them.

    I mean, it doesn't take much to figure out that whatever you're looking at, if indeed you're looking at anything at all, is pretty screwy if it says my "first post on DP" was yesterday (I made over 20,000 posts in one day, after being here silent for 8 years? I thought you were smart, or something), and that my "last post on DP" was at 2:22 PM yesterday when I've already made several TODAY.

    Did you think about this before posting, at all, in the slightest?


    So I posted 6 times exactly a 2 hour time span (1.25 posts every half hour) and that discredits claims about spending time with my family? Talk about a stretch.
    Backpedal on your haughty pronouncements of how sacred you find your family time on Thanksgiving if you like, but for those hours you were posting here, looking up data, everything you were doing, you weren't spending it with family.


    Harshaw, you went through my posting history and forgot to include the time the posts were made? How unlikely for you to be dishonest.
    That's weaaaaak sauce. It's not like clicking back in the quotes won't reveal the times the posts were made. They were all between 11 am and 2 pm Eastern.


    Now tell me, did you cop a lot of sweaters yesterday?
    As I said, if you can prove I left the house yesterday other than going to the neighbor's, you feel free to do so. I'm not making anything up about you. It's not my fault you didn't live up to your own judgments of others.
