Happy Thanksgiving!

As I've previously mentioned, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday.
1. It's purely American.
2. It's more-or-less secular.
3. Food with family & friends is a good idea.
This year we - my Jewish wife & I - are also celebrating Hanukkah... which is also a more-or-less secular holiday commemorating a small miracle in late Second Temple times.

We'll be joined by sisters and new in-laws-to-be - my son's fiancee's family.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Why are they surprised?

Regarding House GOP threat of government shutdown or government default, several commentators have questioned GOP's willingness/ability to govern.
Republican congressmen routinely campaign on anti-government platforms. The Federal Guv'mint is evil, sucking the life blood from all true Americans.
Why is it now surprising to learn they were serious?
