Bill Hicks, standup comedian, musician, and social critic, died February 26, 1994 at age 32.  He spent his time telling it like it is; exposing the corporate mainstream media and corrupt politicians, and spreading consciousness.  This interview on Public Access TV in Austin on CapZeyez, was Bill’s final interview before his death.  In it, Bill shows footage of the Bradley tank the government used to smash into the Branch Davidians’ compound in Waco, Texas.  Bill had this to say on the incident (go to 56 minutes):

“The implications of this, just ponder that, that every MSM news source told us that they launched tear gas in order to convince the moms and the kids to get out.  This meanwhile, as you can see, they’re destroying the compound which the kids were inside of – how they knew that they weren’t going to run a kid over, I don’t know.  Just think of what that implies, that no one has picked up on this news story except public access, A.  And B that the ATF and the FBI are liars and murderers and if they had any honor, if they were truly human beings, they would commit suicide, and explain their role in this murder and mass murder of innocent women and children.  Why’s it’s not news worthy, you tell me, you call me and tell me why it’s not on the news.”

The story of Thanksgiving, with its costumed Pilgrims, turkeys and pumpkin pie, zigzags through American history with some surprising twists.
In the 19th Century, some southern states thought Thanksgiving was an abolitionist plot and refused to celebrate it and Thanksgiving didn’t become an annual national holiday until World War II.
Thanksgiving… What started as a somber Puritan day of prayer is now about commercial sales, football and food.
How did we get there?

    So, in fact, the holiday was an outright thievery of original Native American Thanksgiving. As usually, stolen by the white Men.

    Well at least you don’t have to feel obligated to buy presents. It’s kind of nice to take a rare break in the middle of the week and be with friends and family. No one is making you shop, watch tv or football. People that line up to go to walmart or kmart or minimart —it’s their lives.
