Happy Thanksgiving — CHEERS

Good afternoon plebs.

The turkey is browning in the oven. My MASTER GRAVY is on the stove, powered by a turkey neck. The stuffing was completed last night and I will place the finishing touches on it today. Cooking is an avocation for me. I’ve dedicated countless hours learning how to cook properly and I can honestly say I am immensely thankful to the FUCKED FACES at YouTube for providing a venue for me to learn about the wonderful art of culinary mastery.

If there’s one thing that you should put into perspective, on this very unique 2020 COVID edition pandemic style Thanksgiving, is nuance. Sure, the faggots at Twitter are absolutely terrible people — but they’re also wonderful. Look at the platform they’ve maintained and cultivated, offering people a venue to discuss topics and to connect. There is nothing like it. Same goes for all of the tech tyrants — great and horrible — just like everyone else. The only difference between them and the average Joe showing his ass-crack to his neighbors is power. They have it and you don’t. Nevertheless, I am bullish that normalcy will eventually prevail. Most of the arguments people have these days is about politics. If you just removed that subject from your dialogue — well then — you might be arguing about who’s better — Mets or Yanks again.

Same goes for finance. Sure, we HATE the Fed and their malevolent ways — always printing money and doing stuff to make those damned stocks go up. But then we look at our monthly statements and then we buy ourselves NEW STUFF — because we love to consuuuuume. It delays the melancholy and we buy into the notion that that new iphone or that new jacket is going to make us feeeeeeel better and improve our lives.

Today is a not a day to celebrate the extinction of the natives on American soil, but to be thankful for what you have: health, wealth, and love. Two out of three will suffice. If you don’t have any of them yet, work towards them and stop being such a pussy.

As caretaker of this site for more than 13 years, I want to tell you all reading that I am grateful for the time you spend on my inane missives, putting up with my temper tantrums and hubris. Doing the site and trading with all of you has been an immense gift for me.

Cheers and don’t forget to consuuuume.

    And a Happy Thanksgiving to you, the Fly Family, and all of the readers and traders.
    I hope you put your Mother In Law to work.
    Hopefully next year, it will be a more positive Thanksgiving.
    Our Kids and Grandkids reside in Fascist States (NY (Manhattan) and Oregon) so no visits this year.
    Again, Gobble, Gobble.

    You live in the (almost; NC is way the heck up there) south now; smoke the bird on a kamado like a proper man.
