I know I have told you all about the routine for Thanksgiving before. Eating to much, telling stories about the kids, and getting wasted with my uncles. It's always so much fun. Just wanted to say thanks to all the linkers that make this place fun. I always love hearing about anyone's adventures so feel free to share your plans for tomorrow or any fun traditions you have.

I'm so fucking high.

I'm a big fan of Thanksgiving but what I have to say may come across as a bit harsh, but I mean no personal offense you god damn bums.

America deserves Trump. Your citizens have allowed the US to be the world's greatest threat. You brain dead fuck-holes have fallen for every boogie man the main stream media throws at you. You proudly invade sovereign nations, often arming them before-hand and make no mention of the millions of citizens you have killed in the name of fighting terror. Who the fuck is inflicting the lion's share of terror here? You are so pathetic that you can't even stop mass shootings that occur on a regular basis because you would rather have guns than no mass shootings. How the fuck don't other countries have travel advisories on you dipshits? Any other country with armed, dim-witted, and dangerous locals killing dozens weekly is getting a warning!?! Trump embodies exactly what you are; short-sighted, dangerous consumerists that don't have the self awareness nor the intelligence to understand how full of shit you are.

He's the perfect choice. And after four years of Trump (or eight because American stupidity cannot be underestimated) maybe then you can realize how much of a laughing stock your nation and citizenry are to the rest of the world. What a backwards cesspool of greed and corruption you stand for at the beginnning of every fucking NFL game! Maybe you fucktards could take the time and try to understand what a patriot is, and it's not about bombing children, encouraging big business to dominate your society, and raping the poor. Maybe somewhere down the line an American won't have a negative conatation in 9/10ths of the world. For that to happen you need to learn a lesson and I hope that lesson is Trump.

Someone needs to stun the lathargic, unwashed, Make America Great Again masses, desperately gripping their concealed-carry compensators and fumbling even the most basic concepts of your political process hoping to impress your 2nd cousin with how little you know about the world around you. :fu:

Happy Thanksgiving Linker. A bit of advice speaking to all of you and myself included...don't try and 'win" Thanksgiving. Don't argue politics or try and change your family's mind about anything. Just enjoy them. They won't be there forever.

You can't change anyone's mind thru convo it takes truama and force to shatter their pitiful illusion of reality. Crafted since birth by TV aka their local programming, channeled thru the broad spell cast to worship all harvest holidays along with the spring Equinox and the Winter Soltice. Worshiping Santa and the fucking Easter Bunny wtf why won't you people wake up? Once the veil is lifted the shock will kill most the rest will just fall in line, make sure to watch the NFL Entertainment rigged Football with their pink Cancer Awareness uniforms, consume, consume, you rotting meat suits. We are all being harvested like fat fucking turkeys.

Strong women, volume and more: The MMA stuff to be grateful for this Thanksgiving
https://www.yahoo.com/sports/strong-wom ... 33684.html

I spend a lot of my time criticizing what I perceive as injustice in the MMA world on these pages, but make no mistake that I’m grateful for so much that the sport we cover provide. This Thanksgiving, a few things and people come to mind in particular, and so without further adieu, here are some of the items I’m most thankful for in the MMA world ...
Women in big-league MMA

Women have always been involved in every aspect of mixed martial arts, since long before the sport was even called by its current name. This, of course, included female competitors who fought all over the world in many weight classes.

Yet, it wasn’t until just seven short years ago, in November of 2012, that the UFC ended its ban on female fighters and made Ronda Rousey the first woman signed to its roster. The ban was based on ignorance and prejudice about female athletes that UFC president Dana White unashamedly expressed.

Though they didn’t need to prove anything, female fighters like Rousey and many others have subsequently shown to neophytes what knowledgeable fans knew all along – when it comes to courage, ability, and martial arts knowledge, elite female fighters take a backseat to no one. In just the past seven years, many female UFC athletes have also become outright superstars and provided some of the most exciting bouts in the promotion’s history.

Though the UFC and White have a long way to go yet when it comes to the often sexist way they treat women, we’re at least thankful this week that elite female fighters are in the big leagues of MMA because they’re amazing to follow.

It’s not enough, but it’s better than what we used to have.
The sheer tonnage of MMA fights available for viewing


There is a type of modern MMA fan that occasionally complains about their being “too many” fights on television. Those people are spoiled and should be ignored.

True fight fans can’t get enough of high-level martial arts. Back in my day (pulls blanket higher up on my lap as I sit in my old timer’s rocking chair) we thought it was hubris when the UFC claimed it would produce nine events in 1999.

We were happy to read fight summaries from events we missed because it was banned from cable on the pages of the Full Contact Fighter newspaper a month after they’d happen, or huddle around the television of the rare friend who had satellite dish service to watch events or to even catch them months later from VHS tapes rented at Blockbuster.

I can’t believe this needs to be said in a world where MLB teams each play 162 regular season games per year but let me be clear — after spending years in the dark ages of the sport, I will never tire of readily available MMA to watch. So, bring on the torrent of UFC, Bellator, Invicta, Rizin, Pancrase, PFL, ONE, and many regional events now being broadcast and streamed each week for all of us!
Demetrious Johnson
American fans may not see as much of him as they used to since he was “traded” from the UFC to ONE, but the greatest flyweight of all-time is still out there, fighting, and being incredible. Johnson may already be the most well-rounded and accomplished fighter in the sport’s history, and he doesn’t appear close to retiring any time soon.
The 33-year-old fought and won three times in 2019 after losing a controversial split-decision to now two-division world champion Henry Cejudo in 2018. Johnson doesn’t have the stage he deserves, now, and he never got the respect from the UFC that he did, but he’s out there for the viewing if we’re motivated enough to watch one of the finest athletes in the world compete, and for that I’m thankful.
Amanda Nunes
The knockout artist known as “The Lioness” is a singular force in MMA, right now. It’s been over five years since her last loss and since then the Brazilian has improved and accomplished history multiple times.

Nunes may very well already have the most impressive list of conquered opponents in women’s MMA, and she’s only 31 years of age. In addition to beating many other stellar opponents, Nunes has not only beaten but knocked out arguably the three best and most accomplished female fighters ever, before her that is, in Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate and Cris “Cyborg” Justino.

Nunes stopped Tate – the only two-time women’s 135lbs world champion in history – to become the bantamweight queen in 2016 and in 2018 she moved up a weight class and knocked Cyborg out to become the featherweight champion as well. When Nunes beat Justino, Cyborg was the most dominant fighter in the entire sport, man or woman.

Nunes followed that performance up by knocking former bantamweight champion Holly Holm out and on Dec. 14 the American Top Team fighter will thrill us once more in a title defense against the dangerous Germaine De Randamie at UFC 245 in Las Vegas. Do yourself a favor and watch that bout.
Randy Couture
In late October the sport nearly lost one of its greatest pioneers, champions and ambassadors. Randy Couture — who shocked the world many times over by winning multiple world championships, in two different weight classes and against far younger competition — suffered a heart attack.

In true ironman fashion, Couture walked himself into the hospital while undergoing the cardiac arrest. Thankfully, the former four-time U.S. Olympic Greco Wrestling team alternate, light heavyweight UFC champion and two-time UFC heavyweight king says he’s on the mend, back in training and told me this week that he’s “back up and running.”

The 56-year-old fought at the highest levels of MMA far longer than most thought possible, and it would have been a tragic loss to lose him from this world so soon. We’re wishing “The Natural” a happy and healthy Thanksgiving this year, and we’re so glad he’s still with us.
I'm so fucking high.
