Thanksgiving Proclamation of 1789

By the President of the United States of America, a 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 the People 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 course and conclusion of the late war--for the great degree of tranquility, 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 kindness unto 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 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.

Go: Washington

I dream of a country where big tech is broken up into small main street companies employing Americans instead of communists. I dream of a country where 6 people are not allowed to control 95%+ of our media industry. I dream of a country where freedom reigns.
I dream of a country where you can watch sports or a movie and not be hammered over the head with someone's stupid political beliefs. I dream of a country where elections don't always have life changing consequences and instead most times simply replaces the people within the
...system not the system itself. I dream of a country where the laws apply to All equally no matter the person's political influence, wealth, gender, age or color of their skin. I dream of a country where people are treated as adults, not children, by those we elected to govern.

I'm not one to doom& gloom and I don't like to do it. But, I would be remiss if I didn't point out that things can get really bad on many fronts from this point forward. To be clear, I can see things turning out "okay". Humans tend to step-in to prevent the worst cases occurring.
That being said, we as a nation are at a very dangerous point on an economic, political& national security front. Regardless of how the election turns out, half the country won't accept the results thanks to the people that introduced fraud into our elections. It doesn't matter
.....if fraud was "widespread" or not. The fraud has been seen by too many. The narrative makers overestimated their ability to set the narrative and a very large % now believe fraud occurred. At the very least that will mean, no matter the actual results, people won't accept it.

"Carone was sent to Detroit, Michigan, to provide technical support for the ballot counting process. While she was there she noted poll workers repeatedly double scanning ballots to generate multiple votes from the same batch of ballot sheets.
When she reported this to her employer, Mr. Nick Ikonomakis of Dominion, Carone was told it was not her role to review what the poll workers are doing; essentially to ignore it.
"Ms. Carone also witnessed election workers filling out ballots, fraudulently signing ballots, as well as the unloading of vans in an area of the Detroit election tabulation facility she was not permitted to inspect. Ms Carone was on Fox Business with Lou Dobbs to explain"

People should be concerned about the timing of these new lockdowns from an economic standpoint. We are moving into the busiest shopping season of the year. The Christmas season makes or breaks many retailers, restaurants, and manufacturers.
This is a date sensitive economic process. It can't be changed. You can't "make up" Christmas sales in February or March. Many people charge their gifts just to make Christmas special. Those sales will not be made in March or April.
This isn't toilet paper or canned goods that have a shelf life and will be snatched up as soon as the supplies get to the stores. This is gift buying, dinning out during shopping, Christmas 🎄 sales, decorations, speciality foods and spirits, big ticker consumer items.
