This is a reposting of my weekly Da Tech Guy Column: Giving Thanks and Flying Cars
By A.P. Dillon
The rising of the oceans was supposed to slow.
The planet was supposed to heal.
We were promised flying cars…
Yes we can!

On this Thanksgiving Day, we’re supposed to take stock of how blessed we are. We’re supposed to be thankful for our health, for our families and for what we have. Sadly, some in our nation are ‘thankful’ for what they took from others through an abused definition of ‘justice’.

‘Mostly peaceful’ protests, except for those who were injured or wounded.
This is why we cannot have nice things. These tweets contain a scant few of the images and video captured. Twitter is littered with them.
That sentiment of being pleased with themselves goes double for the shameless media attention seekers like the North Carolina based ‘Moral Monday’. Nice job pulling stunts like at Wal-Mart stores.

What does Wal-mart have to do with this? How is this seeking justice exactly? How is this ‘moral’? It’s not. It’s exploitation of a situation.
How many of the ‘peaceful’ protesters were among those cleaning up the next day?
How many of the media who circled like vultures put down their cameras and picking up brooms?
Take heart. All is not lost, as evidenced by those who did come out the next morning to clean up in Ferguson and elsewhere. Volunteers even came out to the Cake shop from the tweet above and helped the owner get things back in order.
This Thanksgiving, we should be thankful citizens like those cleaning up in Ferguson exist. Perhaps, by cleaning up yet again, they are the ones truly protesting.
If you enjoyed this article, you should really check out other pieces written by Da Tech Guy’s Magnificent Seven writers and maybe hit that tip jar!
