Conservative Jews need not apply.

Conservative Jews need not apply.

Members only pimp swag

The NRCC is straight pimpin a t-shirt that tries to insults liberals. Oh yeah, it insults Jews, Muslims, and any other non-christain group that celebrates this holiday season in some fashion. Are they really saying the Republican party is just for old, christian, white guys? In a word – Yes.

 

 

 

 

Wow, that escalated quickly. Brick killed a guy.

Simpletons drawn to the stupid like a moth to a flame. As Administration works to avoid conflict with Iran,  Congressman Duncan Hunter, R CA,  says we should deploy tactical nuke fleet and destroy Iran. Merry f*&^%ng Christmas and good will toward men, except toward muslims, persians, and others who are different from us.

First in space, first in our hearts

NY group goes to court to get “Tommy” the Chimpanzee recognized as a legal person. Shouldn’t the descendant of Lt Ham, first life form ever in space, be given special consideration? Should they succeed would that make Tommy eligible for congress? I know a seat that may come open in California. Looking at you Duncan.

The War on Christmas part II (I’m dreaming of a White….Holiday)

bing

Sub-title two “The Grinch Who Stole “A Holiday’”

In my first 10 years or so in the Air Force, I usually served on the Christmas party committee.  Just to contribute to the effort. One year, at Pope AFB, I think I’d been in about 12 years at the time, I participated again. “Well, the first thing,” the committee chair said, “ is that we have to change the name from the “Christmas party” to the “Holiday party.”

“Um, what? Why?” I inquired.

“Well, because it can offend people if it’s called “The Christmas party.”

“Really?” I said, “I’ve never heard of anyone being offended. Who are they? I’ve been involved in Christmas parties for about 11 years, and I’ve never heard anyone say anything?”

“Well, it could offend people.”

“Oh, ok, so it’s just BS then. You don’t actually know that it’s offended anyone or stopped anyone from coming.”

“Well, we’re just trying to be PC, you know.”

See, I don’t know anything about “The War on Christmas.” Here’s what I know.

When I was a kid, we watched “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” Charlie Brown talking about the meaning of Christmas. “The Grinch who stole Christmas.” You, know, about how he “Couldn’t keep Christmas from coming.” Yahoo door-ehs, all that stuff. Endless Christmas carols and Christmas eve services.  I don’t have anything against what anyone does. I, however, grew up with “Christmas.” As did millions of other Americans.

From my perspective, Christmas is a part of the American culture. And I am referring to the Christian holiday. You can’t really deny it, it’s not an argumentative point. It just is.

In America, you can worship who you want, celebrate or not celebrate what you want. But there is a culture of the majority of Americans. So when people get upset about “The War on Christmas” what they’re really upset about is seeing a piece, a very large, important piece, of their culture slowly being eradicated from the public sphere.  You only have to consider that two of our major holidays are centered in the Christian religion to understand how engrained it is in the culture. When you take the manger scene out of the town hall, or call the Christmas tree the Holiday tree, I don’t care who did it or why. People see it as a cultural issue, even if they don’t express it as such.

December 25 is still called “Christmas.” If it’s a legitimate argument, why do we even allow it to be called “Christmas”?  Why don’t we just call it “The Holiday”? While we’re at it, we better think about Easter. I’m no Bible scholar, but I think both those days are about the same guy.

I understand the media makes a mockery out of it. I don’t know about “The War on Christmas” or that there’s an enemy. It’s about culture, and people take their culture very seriously.  It’s not about excluding anyone or disrespecting what someone else chooses.  In America, we seem to have a tremendous capacity to respect everyone’s culture but our own. Worse, we’re getting to the point where we refuse to even acknowledge what it is, we can’t say what “our” culture is, for some notion that it may exclude someone. Some view it as progress. I view it as progress towards our own end. Language, culture, borders. The march to our end continues. Merry Christmas, and Happy Holidays.

The War on Christmas…. Who’s winning?

I actually started to write a serious piece for this, but 2 sentences in I realized there is absolutely no serious discussion to be had here.

I mean how can you have a serious discussion with pictures like this floating around?

War-On-Christmas2

Santa, you best get that RPG slung properly, quick, fast, and in a hurry!

OK, for the plug nickel they are worth, here are my observations as a non-combatant in the Was on Christmas. Why am I a non-combatant?  Cause I don’t give two yule tide craps about a trumped up issue that’s being used to separate Americans even more then we already are.  On to my observations.

The art work is worth the fight:

Look at that first one.  Just awesome. The first picture is from the blog I CAN WRITE FUNNY at blogspot.  Except the piece he wrote is serious.  He’s mad because people treat him funny when he tells them he doesn’t celebrate Christmas.  Damn commie.  I mean what does he think, this is a free country or something?

Here are three of my favorites.  All I did was googlize War on Christmas.  Trust me it was hard to pick just three.

war-on-christmas-card-1

This last one of Bill O’Reilly is my ultimate favorite.  It’s not really a picture.  It’s a Christmas card you can actually buy.  Oh yeah, you ain’t a patriot if you don’t send out these for Christmas.  O’Reilly is the Bob Hope of the war of Christmas. He leads off every December with shows about it.  He has the most guests on his show throughout December to talk about it, and he is the town cryer when a new combatant joins the fray. Which brings me to the next observation.

Who is the enemy?

Is it liberals or just democrats, libertarians, atheists, muslims, who?  Who should I be throwing Christmas balls at, or stab with the star from my tree?

My good friend Andy is Jewish.  He doesn’t celebrate Christmas, is he the enemy?  I mean he killed Jesus, that must qualify as an act of war.  Well he didn’t kill Jesus personally.  I know this because he’s not particularly skilled with tools and hates the sight of blood. But he digs a Menorah this time of year.  But Jesus was a Jew too.  And of course had Jesus not be killed he never would have rose from the dead and saved us all from eternal damnation.

Mind you it’s not a green tree with lights or a fat dude in a red suit, but the empty tomb and folded wrap that was around his body that are the true symbols of Christ and his ministry, started around 3 BC  in that little town of Bethlehem so long ago. OK that’s too complicated.  Oh well, Chag Sameach Chanukah Andy my friend.

Yeah, Andy can’t be the enemy.  Know why, he makes a mean Kugel.  I think his wife makes it, but he always carried into our end of year holiday party at the base.  No one seemed too pissed about that.  No way you could be an enemy making a righteous dessert like that.  I can and almost did eat my body weight in Kugel one year.  Click it if you want to learn about a great holiday dessert.  Of course if you get offended at the word holiday, just skip it.  You’re not allowed to have Kugel.

Now I know O’Reilly knows who the enemy is.  I must say of all the newsmen reporting on this, he at least has the opposition on to tell their side.  Like the other night when he had the Governor of Rhode Island on.  Chris there are some hard truths coming, avert your eyes.  The state house in Rhode Island put up a tree this year like they have done every year, but they call it a holiday tree.  The Governor was on to defend that.  He is independent, which to a conservative means he’s a spineless democrat.

So Bill is giving this dirty commie the once over twice, when the dude finally blurts out under duress that he didn’t start calling it the holiday tree, it was the Governor in the 90ies who started that tradition.  If there was a way we could search a data base somewhere to find out who the governor was in the late 90ies in Rhode Island. Ah well, maybe in the future.  But we’re in luck, I know who it was.  Lincoln C. Almond was the governor from 1995 – 2003 and he indeed started the tradition of calling the tree in the state house a holiday tree.  So we have one of the enemy leaders ID’d. Now, searching his FBI file we find that… wait… this can’t be right.  It says he’s a Republican.  How can that be?

What about the next dude, a Mr Donald Carcieri.  He was governor of Rhode Island from 2003 – 2011.  Another good republican.  He must have changed it back to Christmas Tree before this commie pig independent went to that socialist term of holiday.  And checking the records… and we find that yes, yes, .. no, …no he kept it holiday tree as well.  None of this makes a lick of sense.  Two, count them, two republican governors called it a holiday tree long before Lincoln Chaffee became governor and yet he’s the one, this independent swine is the one getting all the credit?  How can that be?  Must be some sort of holiday miracle.

Where are these people who get mad when you say Merry Christmas?

Really, who are these people.  Me and Frank are out a lot and we say Merry Christmas to everybody.  We start the first time we’re out after Thanksgiving and don’t stop until December 31st.  I have yet to be rebuffed, rebuked, stared at, sneered at, hushed, shushed or anything else.  We just get a Merry Christmas in return.

So if you run across some of these people who deny you the right to say Merry Christmas, make you stop singing carols, dump your egg nog or what have you, take hold of them and call me.  Then I can come give them a good yule tide punch right in the snot locker.

You know what this war needs, a good Christmas fight song for our boys in the trenches who are fighting this war to save Christmas.  I’ll be Home for Christmas is already taken. Besides the guys fighting the war on Christmas are already home… fighting… for Christmas.

This is hard.

Y’all keep fighting the good fight against these people destroying Christmas.  I’ll be at church, in town, and then home freely celebrating Christmas.

Let me know who won.

You know what I was wrong.  There is a serious issue here; the ridiculous phrase War on Christmas.  It’s an insult to everyone of our men and women fighting and dying for us in a real war in Afghanistan.  They’ve been there for a decade and they won’t be home for Christmas.  If you must be a hyper-sensitive, weak minded fool, who can’t function without being offended by something, be offended by that.

At least you’ll finally be focused on something real.
