WORD: Occupy Parenting — Getting big corporations out of our families

     The great thing about Thanksgiving itself is that it's the ultimate non-commercial holiday.  How do you sell people stuff when you're dealing with a holiday that's all about giving thanks for what you have?  
   You can't!  That's why the media and businesses work so hard to have you ignore the holiday, trying to prime you to go right for the "Black Friday" aspect of things, hoping you'll be all set for a four-week bacchanalia of debt-fueled spending.

  Nice to see some sanity creeping in.
