Most forget what Thanksgiving is about, it is good to be reminded why we give thanks.

I Personally think most people don't really think about Thanksgiving as more then a Big meal and a football game. Most Brand stores don't really even celebrate it. It's Halloween (with a little "harvest" stuff in there) then Christmas. And we wonder why the youth of our country are so ungrateful.

Most of the youth in this country do not even know how to say thank you.

I don't know about that. I always get thank you from the kids as they get off the bus. Even if it doesn't really mean anything, they know it's polite to say. But that doesn't mean they are Grateful for it.

And then we spread like a virus and infested America, killing Native Americans as we went, taking what we wanted.

But hey, they get free schooling, can operate casinos and get tremendous tax breaks, so I guess it was a fair trade.

Well just think where would the indians be without us? Living in tents and hunting buffalo on foot, remember there were no horses until the white man brought them. We did alot for the indians and not so nice of things either. So we also need to thank them.

our founding fathers have almost succeeded in what hitler was hunted down for, the extinction of a race.

You seem like a stand up kinda guy, you should donate all you assets to some Indian tribe and offer to work for them for free for the rest of life as a means of apologizing....
