Are Sundays good for America and Americans?
In this day of relegating religion to the back burner or worse to no burner at all, it’s appropriate to look back upon what we’re missing. What’s the value of a Sunday in church, or temple, or a synagog or other religion Saturday; in addition to an attempt at cleansing one’s soul?
A Sunday (or other day) gathering of friends and those who somewhat think alike has not been replaced in any form, unless, of course, you consider Friday or Saturday night in the local bar, or your bridge club, or poker party. Most of those gatherings have a less admirable motive, and often as not a less admirable result than Sundays in church.
“I do verily believe that if the principle were to prevail of a common law being in force in the United States (which principle possesses the general government at once of all the powers of the state governments, and reduces us to a single consolidated government), it would become the most corrupt government on the earth.”

(1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President

Obviously Jefferson feared exactly what we’ve let happen.

Here’s a quick look into the three former Fannie Mae executives who brought down Wall Street.
I guess President Obama failed to read President Lincoln’s original creation of the holiday Thanksgiving:
“I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.” Abe Lincoln
Sherman Frederick in the Las Vegas Review-Journal:
In what I think almost all Americans would call “odd,” President Barack Obama delivered his weekly address with a speech entitled: “On Thanksgiving, Grateful for the Men and Women Who Defend Our Country.”
