Warm Springs, Georgia--here are Eleanor and FDR at his first Thanksgiving as President, 1933: #AP

Thanks for the reminder, Kevin M. Kruse

I saw a remark somewhere last year, I guess it was, that Roosevelt carved the turkey so thin you could practically see through it.

These look like two different Thanksgivings to me. The rooms are different, the people are different, Eleanor is not wearing the same dress, and so on. Ayone?

“May we ask guidance in more surely learning the ancient truth that greed and selfishness and striving for undue riches can never bring lasting happiness or good to the individual or to his neighbors,” read Franklin Roosevelt’s first proclamation in 1933.

1. Two different ones. Everything you said. . and the people are different as well.

2. "...greed and selfishness and striving for undue riches."

Really, that's all the definition you need for conservatism. Codify it and force everyone to partake in it in order to get things like health care and retirement. Boom goes the dynamite.
