Renaming Thanksgiving – Suggestions please

Some of my American Indian friends and relatives call Thanksgiving turkey day as that is about all the respect it deserves from them, despite the phony message of the day when you take into account the genocide that followed. Personally I want to see it renamed as Ungrateful Bastards Day. Anyone got any other suggestions?

  1. this is from my tweet from earlier today:

    Happy Thanks-For-Nothing Day. or. Happy You’re Welcome Day. or. Happy Get The Fuck Off My Land & Pass The Gravy Day. or. Fuck Columbus Day.

  2. I call it Gratitude day, as that was it’s original intent, but instead of saying HAPPY Turkey day to my relatives I say Happy Thursday! They laugh at me but thats all it is to me. A designated thursday where I get to show my appreciation and gratitude that Creator chose to make me Oglala Lakota and Pomo. Genocide is the horrific reality commemorated by a false pretense, the Government is just a big False advertisement. Land of the free home of the brave, indeed we are, I served in the US military because because I wanted to be able to march with the Tokalas at powwows/and in order to defeat the enemy you must understand them. If we could fast forward that first massacre to today I guarantee we would be celebrating a different holiday, and the death marches and massacres would have been initiated by us. But you cannot kill mother nature, that is the one thing that stays beyond mans power. The earth beneath the concrete and skyscrapers is soaked in blood, we cannot ever forget that, one day the entire earth will swallow everything that is not “natural” and we will have our reckoning.
