The economic meltdown, the election in general…a lot of folks won’t have much to be grateful for this coming Thursday. Damn, I’m glad I just have the gun corner here at the Backwoods Home blogs. The gun stuff is enough to be worried about.
Some, on both political sides, are predicting that the new President will be too busy with real problems to bother with illusory solutions like “gun control.” If I believed that, I’d be giving thanks for it before Thanksgiving.
However, appointments announced thus far by the President-elect don’t bode well for gun owners’ civil rights. Eric Holder for US Attorney General? The guy is “anti” in the extreme.
At this writing, it has not yet been confirmed that Hillary Clinton will be our next Secretary of State, but it’s darn sure lookin’ that way. Until she tried to reinvent herself as a supporter of the Second Amendment during her failed primary campaign, Senator Clinton was extremely “anti,” indeed, the most vocally anti-gun First Lady in history.
It’ll be interesting to have a Secretary of State whose husband has received so many millions of dollars from assorted foreign countries, as donations to his library and such…
Good that the new Prez is gonna bring us change…J
For the moment, though, I give thanks that my family and friends are together and well and still have their freedoms.
A most pleasant Thanksgiving to you all!
