I'm thankful for all you guys who continue to humor me and let me think I'm decent at this political analysis thing.
I'm also thankful I don't have to put up with assholes jumping over my fence while I'm eating dinner.
Have a good holiday, folks.

President Obama weighed in last night on the Laquan McDonald execution (and it was a summary execution by the police, point blank, six seconds after that cop got out of his car) and posted to Facebook:
Like many Americans, I was deeply disturbed by the footage of the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald. This Thanksgiving, I ask everybody to keep those who’ve suffered tragic loss in our thoughts and prayers, and to be thankful for the overwhelming majority of men and women in uniform who protect our communities with honor. And I’m personally grateful to the people of my hometown for keeping protests peaceful.
That's a good sentiment, but what we need is something like the Department of Justice coming in and breaking up the Chicago PD leadership, and putting the police under federal control. The fact that no Chicago PD officer has ever. Been. Charged. With. Murder. Until now astonishes me. No police department in the country has ended more black lives than Chicago. The entire department needs to be disbanded and reformed. It is by far the most corrupt police department in the country. They torture people there, you know.
Oh, and I'd like to see the President go to Chicago, go see his buddy Rahm Emanuel, and just deck him in public. I know that won't happen. I know Rahm is definitely part of the problem and I know the President has always been blind to Rahm's foolishness.
Maybe Michelle can deck him.
I'm not worried about President Trump or Carson. I'm worried about President Rubio.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says religious believers are called to “ignore” laws that violate their faith.
“In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally violate and sin — violate God’s law and sin — if we’re ordered to stop preaching the Gospel, if we’re ordered to perform a same-sex marriage as someone presiding over it, we are called to ignore that,” Rubio said in an interview with CBN on Tuesday.
“So when those two come into conflict, God’s rules always win,” he added.
Rubio said Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision creating a constitutional right to abortion, is open to revision.
“It’s current law; it’s not settled law,” he said. “No law is settled. Roe v. Wade is current law, but it doesn’t mean that we don’t continue to aspire to fix it, because we think it’s wrong.”
The Republican presidential candidate, who is rising in the polls, encouraged the faithful to work within the political process to change laws that violate their conscience.
“If you live in a society where the government creates an avenue and a way for you to peacefully change the law, then you’re called to participate in that process to try to change it,” he said.
Once again, this is a supposedly serious presidential candidate openly saying that rule of law and the US Constitution are both meaningless, because God. What the Supreme Court determines as constitutional has no value because no law is settled. Rubio will just ignore the laws he doesn't like.
There's a word for that.
It's called "theocracy". And this is supposedly the least insane of the GOP candidates.
Republicans cannot be allowed to win in 2016, or we lose the country.
