    Why are there still leaves on the trees in November in Massachusetts? Can’t Mr. Ramirez get anything right?

    Ever heard of evergreen trees such as Holm oak?

    The leaves are off deciduous trees in Massachusetts in late November. Any left clinging to the oaks are sere and brown, not lush and green arrayed in ferns. Is Mr. Ramirez troubled by misrepresentation of facts or figures? Need we ask?

    Good Grief! While I usually do not agree with this particular political catoonist, it is somewhat silly to be complaining about his artwork in cartoons that he makes to make a political statement!

    True the point is accurate though and not apolitical today.

    oh ya, and I bet you are one that cry saying the empire state building was traded away for a few beads and white guy only brought bad things and they were some peaceful people who never harmed mother earth and blah blah blah
    I for one am thankful someone came over the ocean and set up what has become the greatest Nation on earth. Something that would not have happened if “native” had been left in charge.

    "The leaves are off deciduous trees in Massachusetts in late November. "

    Except for it wasn’t held in November. It was held after the harvest. There is very little about the modern notion of Thanksgiving that is based on fact.

    Really is this your only criticism, you are that desperate to whine about something.

    Amen but that is not political, it is just pure unconstructive criticism.

    But seriously, folks, I do not think the early English settlers, like those who came to what is today Massachusetts, had any thought about subduing and killing off the natives. (The Spanish explorers DID!)
    When the “Pilgrims”, off the Mayflower arrived, they soon found some natives who spoke English! Where did they learn that? It seems that a little further north, in what is today the town of Ipswich, English fishermen had landed there for many years prior, after fishing the banks offshore. They built several structures, and dried their fish, and returned with their catch to England each year.
    Years later, as settlers moved inland, toward New York, things became more serious, as some tribes resented the intrusion. Settlers soon became enraged at some of the butchery practiced by a few tribes, and then began to treat all natives as barbarians, deserving to be slaughtered. It was unfortunate, but it happened. Add into the mix the racial pride of white supremacy, and that was it, for most Native Americans.
    If Columbus had foundered, and not returned from his voyage, it was only a matter of time that others would arrive. It is Man’s sorry history of the strong taking from the weak.
    (Not too unlike today’s economic scenario!)

    I’m pretty sure they would not have been outside in November during the little Ice Age.Nor would they be outside today.They would have had the feast earlier in the year .
