George Washington’s 1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation

The story below is by  Rush Limbaugh.

It is a very good history lesson.
The George Washington 1789 Thanksgiving proclamation.
Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me “to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.
“Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be — That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks — for his kind care and protection of thePeople of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation — for the signal and manifold mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we experienced in the tranquility [sic], union, and plenty, which we have since enjoyed — for the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and particularly the national One now lately instituted — for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing useful knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he hath been pleased to confer upon us.
And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to pardon our national and other transgressions — to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually — to render our national government a blessing to all the people, by constantly being a
Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed — to protect and guide all Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn [sic] kindness onto us) and to bless them with good government, peace, and concord — To promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease [sic] of science among them and us — and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as he alone knows to be best.
Given under my hand at the City of New York the third day of October in the year of our Lord 1789.
George Washington You want me to count the number of references to God?
How about just the first line? “Whereas, it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and to humbly implore His protection and favor.
“Let’s see. One, two, three, four references in just that first clause.
What a fanatic, George Washington!Just wanted you to hear that.
That’s the first Thanksgiving proclamation in 1789.
The real story of Thanksgiving — and by the way, the real story is continuing, what I just read to you.
The thanks was given to God, not the Indians.

New York City Wants to Ban Hot Dogs to Stop Global Warming

H/T Godfather Politics.

This proves what many Conservatives have been saying Liberalism is a mental disorder.

The City of New York is banning hot dogs from government facilities in order to save the earth from global warming. No, they are serious.

Bill de Blasio’s jack-booted city authorities are moving to ban all processed meats from schools, and government-run cafeterias to save the earf.

The new measure comes as part of the city’s version of a “green new deal,” according to Daily Wire:

“The plan,” Z100 says, “will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017.”

Mayor de Blasio hailed his new plan.

“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan. … Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same,” de Blasio said of his global warming plan.

The ridiculous policy would not stop restaurants or street venders from selling hot dogs, granted, but this is obviously the “camel’s nose under the tent,” if you will.

How long will it be before the city fathers, in their wisdom, decide to ban hot dogs in people’s homes, too?

Remember when people said banning smoking in government buildings would never leek over into everyone’s private lives? Then lawmakers began pushing bills to stop people from being allowed to smoke in their own homes.

The point is, liberals are never satisfied. When they get on small win, they then work to expand that win to become universal and never limited in scope.
