A Special Thanksgiving

A Special Thanksgiving
Al Ritter

I am thankful today because:

Al Gore was never elected as our president

Nancy Pelosi lost the speaker of the house position

Chris Dodd retired

Carbon Credit trading collapsed last month

Barack Obama continually makes major mistakes

Joe Biden has his foot in his mouth constantly

Unless Ron Paul wins the nomination his political career will be over soon

Chris Matthews has lost that tingling feeling up his leg

Thousands of military men and women are protecting my freedom

I had a wonderful mother that formed the man you see today

My mother made sure I travelled the United States to see the real spirit of the country

The father that instilled the work ethic that allowed me to retire early

A son, daughter-in-law, and grandson who love me

I have a wonderful girlfriend who loves and appreciates me

A rescue dog that loves her daddy

A wonderful house, a little bit of property that’s paid for

Fortunate enough to be retired and happily busy

Fortunate to have some of the best friends in the world that would do anything for me if asked

I am lucky to have been born in the best country in the world!
