A picture postcard I received from someone who lives in France.

*"Thanksgiving e-commerce sales pass $1.5B, up 17% year-on-year." The Trump effect. 

*"The Macy's Thanksgiving day parade in NYC had police snipers and heavy 

security." It's a damn shame that's its come to this.

*"On Google search page: "Black Friday deals on Google Home Mini, Google wifi 

and more at Google Store." Click on Black Friday deals and see what they have. 

*"Debate stifled in Cambodia as crackdown spreads fear.

Turkey to detain 79 former teachers in post-coup probe: Anadolu (international 

news agency headquartered in Ankara, Turkey and is a state-run news agency of 

the Turkish government..)"" State run means the same fewer freedoms as the 

two news articles above. No first Amendment rights there.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or 

prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of 

the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the 

government for a redress of grievances."

*"PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) NewsHour’s guide to holiday civility.

Hard conversations are never going to be easy — but they can be more civil. 

Some 58 percent of Americans are dreading talk of politics this Thanksgiving, 

according to our latest PBS NewsHour-Marist poll. We hope this guide can help 

you and your family survive your holiday feast.

We’ve gathered advice from some of PBS NewsHour’s most respected authorities 

on civility and put together a handy placemat you can print out and share during 

your holiday meal."

I know your Thanksgiving dinner is over unless you're still eating, of course, but 

you can still "print out and share" for your Christmas dinner by going to the URL 



*"Overthrowing Assad and the Neoconservative Agenda in Syria."

Paul Jay talks with Larry Wilkerson, Part 2.

Reports say that Assad lives in Damascus or at least somewhere in Syria, I 

believe, and he has left Syria once or twice since crisis started. Chicken sh#^. 

He's just as bad as that fat, little son of a *^$@#, Kim Jong-un, dictator of North

Korea. They're both narcissists (cares about themselves only) and I don't believe 

there's a cure for that.

*"YouTube failed to remove sexualised comments." For those who do not know, BBC stands 

for the British Broadcasting Corporation who are more neutral than most.  

One of my videos on YouTube show me taking a shower, but it didn't involve

"sexualised comments" because I had my shorts on the entire time. 

*"Colin Kaepernick makes surprise appearance at 'Unthanksgiving Day' on 

Alcatraz." (San Francisco news). Take away the boat and let 

him swim for it.

*"African Americans Are Disproportionately Arrested for Low-Level Marijuana 

Violations—and the Disparity Is Growing." Paul Armentano. No comment. I don't want to say anything that will

hurt someone's feelings.

*"Marvel Heroes publisher Gazillion shuts down after Disney severs ties." Reports recently that Disney is enjoying less profitability

may be the reason for telling Gazillion to go.
