Drek The Halls

Well, you know Christmas approaches when Fox "news" rolls out its annual war on their imaginary war on Christmas, mixed with their predictable outrage that President Obama is taking some vacation time. You know, turning off the phone, going offline, recklessly disregarding all the duties and obligations of his office. The number of vacation days the America-hating black guy has taken is shockingly approaching a third of the number Mr Bush had taken by this time in his term.

That Daily Show clip is worth a watch: I hadn't known about the pilgrimoid views on Christmas.

Bereft of actual ideas, the right wing and their public organ disguised as a news network have become shamelessly dishonest to a level of laughability for anyone with a coma score better than fifteen. Really, you'd think even the sheep-like Fox viewers would get tired of this crap eventually, as Christmas propagation begins earlier and earlier each year and Christianity becomes ever more overtly embedded in our politics.

These are deeply disturbed people.

I laughed and laughed when I saw the local grocery store in my very red, very religious community had "Season's Greetings" and "Happy Holidays" painted on the front windows, but not "Merry Christmas." I don't think anyone around here would suspect a thing. But if it happened in one of those sinful blue communities. Well, then.

My 2 cents: There is way too much blurring of "church and state" in politics and way too many R-wing conservatives hiding their intolerance behind the cross. However, I like Christmas. The season inspires generosity and is a reminder to treat others as we would like to be treated. A tenet that is so simple--but so elusive in today's cynical, divisive, self-serving world.

Wouldn't have to be an Earthquake or Swarm of Locusts, just a little crosswind, hiccup in the Carburetor, something to make old Lee Harvey flinch...
And ditto for whatever day Martin Luther King got shot on..
Is it too much for God to make James Earl Ray sneeze at the critical moment? I mean if He can rise for the dead and walk on water, etc etc...
