It’s Christmas Time

    As you can tell I have not been posting much this month.   I just have not had much extra time to write about all the aggravating garbage that has been going on politically. The two main topics this month have been the Republican primary and the payroll tax holiday. It’s Christmas time so I’m going to be quick and charitable in what I have to say. As | Read More »

    Gay Liberation Network Boycotts Salvation Army

    The one charity that has the lowest administrative costs (i.e. more of your donation actually gets to the needy) is being boycotted by the Gay Liberation Network. Why? Because it adheres to its religious beliefs. It stands up for what it believes in. (Ever notice that folks who admire others who “stand up for what they believe in” almost invariably don’t appreciate it when they | Read More »

    Christmas Terror in Nigeria

    Christians in Nigeria face terror this Christmas Day, as reported by CNN: The Christmas Eve attacks in the volatile Nigerian city of Jos have claimed at least 31 lives, a bloody aftermath in a region long torn by Christian and Muslim hostility. Choji Gyang, a special adviser to the governor of the west African country’s Plateau state, confirmed the death toll on Saturday, and said | Read More »

    The Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Wherever you live on the planet, the jolly red-faced gentleman, hitching up his pants around his portly frame, will have visited you by now. Er… no, I’m not referring to Barney Frank! The Christmas holiday is a time to chill out (or perhaps ‘freeze’ would be a better description, Mr Gore!) and try to forgive those that have done us wrong throughout the year. There’s | Read More »

    For the Dual Citizens Among Us, Carol Excerpts on the Incomprehensibility of the Incarnation

    Recent references to Christmas on the site have emphasized its benefits in realms ranging from cultural to redemptive; its helpfulness in improving the state of that precious location, the interior life*, has been variously extolled. The enduring Christmas carols, taken as a whole, emphasize many aspects of Jesus’ advent and birth–prophecy revealed and fulfilled, the local manifestations of drama which occurred when the eternal covenant | Read More »

    Lenin and The Symbols of the Seasons

    You may think it strange that Christmas makes me think of V I Lenin, the founder of the USSR. But for 50 years he was the symbol of everything good and holy in a powerful and sizeable portion of the world. As Mark Twain once said of the Devil, “anyone who is spiritual head of half the world…and political head of the whole of it” | Read More »

    CONAD, NORAD, Santa, and Scrooges

    I’ve seen a few Facebook and several Twitter posts that sound a great deal like Scrooge. “Christmas! A fine excuse for NORAD to pick the taxpayer’s pocket every 25th of December!” from the childless who have apparently lost their inner child, and a few rueful remarks from parents who are suffering through the throes of their kid clicking Refresh every couple of minutes to see where Santa is RIGHT NOW! But the rueful parents will smile at the memory, as will their kids in later years.

    As for the Scrooges: Get over yourselves.

    And Wonders of His Love…..

    Promoted from diaries and bumped – Moe Lane My 23 year old son sent me this video. From there, came the idea of a Christmas post; though it is about more than Christmas – had Thanksgiving on my mind, and the year to come. As I watched this video, I was enthralled with the beautiful scenes of nature: the quiet of the woods, the light | Read More »

    The Liberals Continue Their War on Christmas

    It’s that time of year. Most Americans are putting their final touches on their decorations, getting their final presents, and getting ready to celebrate Christmas with family and friends. Well, not everybody: Nina Totenberg actually apologizes for saying she was at a Christmas party. As Ace says, Totenberg would never say “I was — forgive the expression — at a gay wedding”; remember, Totenberg’s outfit, | Read More »

    It’s CHRISTMAS and PC Does Not Change The Facts

    FACT – December 25 is celebrated as CHRISTMAS DAY and not the Winter Solstice, or some other variation on the anti Christmas theme. FACT – The celebration of Christmas is a celebration of a birthday of a Child who was born in a stable in the town of Bethlehem and the Child’s name was Jesus who is the Son of God. FACT – Though many | Read More »

    A Yuletide Target of Michelle Obama’s War On Obesity?

    Why the heck not?!? Even though it’s not illegal actors can’t smoke on screen anymore without someone having a fit. How could something like this not be next? Hey! We could finally recognize Santa as a threat to national security! How progressive! Crossposted
