Did everybody have a good Thanksgiving? You’re probably still finishing up leftovers so here’s an open thread for those who aren’t out in the post-Thanksgiving shopping madness.

A few things to kick it off…

In his weekly address that aired on Thanksgiving, President Obama really used the occasion to keep selling his call to bring thousands of Syrian refugees to the U.S.:

President Obama used his weekly address to appeal to families counting their blessings on Thanksgiving, reminding Americans that the holiday isn’t only about turkey but a tribute to the deep immigration history that led to the nation’s founding.

“In 1620, a small band of pilgrims came to this continent, refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land,” Obama says. “Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story – and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need.”

So the Mayflower pilgrims were also fleeing climate change? Gee, you learn something new every day!

*****

Speaking of global warming, according to Obama, what’s a “powerful rebuke to the terrorists”? Refusing to cancel a meeting of bureaucrats pushing the climate change sham:

If continuing to blame terrorist atrocities on “climate change” isn’t part of “what ISIS wants” I don’t know what is.

*****

Here’s a headline for you: Anti-Gun DC Police Chief Urges Public to ‘Take Down’ Active Gunman If Possible.

How so? With a chair or maybe a fire extinguisher.

*****

And finally, what would Black Friday be without some people displaying the spirit of the season?

Enjoy the weekend all!
