BigGator5’s YouTube Christmas Project: Luke 2:8-14
Ok, I am getting bored. When I get bored, I start doing stuff I shouldn’t be doing and things I should be doing get left undone. Good news everyone! I want to make a YouTube Christmas video! And I want you guys to help me make it! Here’s the idea:
Let’s Take The Language Back.
For far too long the left has managed to control the language of the political debate… not that there’s been much debate with this Congress. The left are masters of the non-specific. It’s usually a word, or a turn of phrase, that serves to divert conversation and debate away from an objective not their own. Assigning predominantly Republican cities and states the color red, as | Read More »
A senator with a backbone keeps ‘Christ’ in Christmas
Here’s one that should drive the Left crazy. The Tulsa World News reported yesterday Senator Jim Inhofe (R) Oklahoma isn’t going to ride in the local parade of lights because they changed the title from a Christmas parade to a holiday parade. Here’s the forum link I found, and by way of full disclosure was directed to by a close friend who runs that forum. | Read More »
Which is it Mr. President?
Is the Nigerian terrorist an ‘isolated extremist’ or part of an Al Qaeda plot? 3 days after the attempted bombing on Christmas Pres. Obama made the claim that this nut was an isolated person. Now, after gathering and reading the facts he has acknowledged he was part of a larger plot. Instead of waiting until he had the information, he jumps the gun. Just like | Read More »
Waiting for Sim: Christmas Eves With the Definitive Scrooge
by Michael Mandaville www.CitizenSoldierHandbook.com When growing up in Los Angeles, a singular delight was getting the TV Guide in the Sunday paper and scouring it, pen in hand. My movie search. In the sixties, Los Angeles had the greatest number of TV channels in any city: 2-4-5-7-9-11-13. In trips to San Diego, the Mid-West or anywhere else, you’d be lucky to get two, maybe three | Read More »
Report: WH in full CYA/BDS mode over Christmas attack.
A quick survey of priorities: In 2001, the American government’s response to a successful series of terrorist attacks was to look outwards to see who to hit for this*. In 2009, the American government’s response to an only-because-we-got-lucky unsuccessful terrorist attack was to look inwards to see who to blame for this. (H/T: Nice Deb) I think that, all things considered, I prefer the first | Read More »
Merry Christmas from Ronald Reagan
Often overlooked when contemplating the life and presidency of Ronald Reagan are his strong faith and his deep understanding that it is the “twin beacons of faith and freedom [that] have brightened the American sky,” as he eloquently described in his first Christmas address as President, on December 23, 1981. In that address, he said, “At this special time of year we all renew our | Read More »
Ho-Ho-Hobama the Santa Bandit
State Police in Pennsylvania are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect who robbed a bank in Chadds Ford Township dressed like Santa Claus. According to police, investigators are seeking a white male, wearing black sweatpants and sweatshirt and a fake grey “Santa Claus” beard. Santa Claus is the iconic symbol of giving.

On behalf of my editor Dee, and myself, we wish all of you who have helped make this endeavor a success… A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY AND BLESSED HOLIDAY SEASON.
The Adoration of the Shepherds by Charles Le Brun (1690) The Gospel of Luke 2:1-20In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.) And everyone went to his own town to register.So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth | Read More »

I Believe in Christmas
Christmas is an opportunity to take a step back from our busy lives to spend time with family and to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I wanted to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, and I hope you’ll take a minute to remember those who are out of work and those serving in the military | Read More »
Some Coal for Their Stockings
It has been a particularly potent strategy when dissidents have used object lessons to deliver their point. The dumping of tea into the Boston Harbor, sitting at lunch counters where they weren’t welcome, and candle light vigils for fallen heroes have demonstrated the power of symbols over simple, verbal speech. We have yet to begin really mounting symbolic demonstrative speech and we are consistantly ignored. | Read More »
