A Fine Line Between Stupid And Clever

Now With Electrolytes!

It’s Already Starting

Posted by bmac on November 15, 2007

I’m beginning to dread Christmas. Christmas is no longer a wonderful family holiday, a time to reflect on our blessings, the one time of year everyone is just a little nicer, regardless of your specific religion. 

No, Christmas has become a war. A yearly war, fought between liberals and traditional Americans. It’s not even Thanksgiving yet, and the battle has begun.

Lowes Blasted For Selling “Family Trees” Instead Of “Christmas Trees.”

And they’re off!

Santas Warned “Ho Ho Ho” Offensive To Women

Ok, the Santa one is from Australia, but I have no doubt we’ll get something just as stupid.

What do we have to look forward to?

City and state buildings wringing their hands over whether or not to have a nativity display.

Retailers wringing their hands over whether or not to authorize their employees to utter the words “Merry Christmas.”

Schools wringing their hands over having anything in the classroom that may possibly be offensive to anyone other than Christians.

Lot’s of OUTRAGE over all the wringing of hands, countless articles and commentaries about “Secular America” vs “Traditional America,” etc. etc. etc.

About a thousand more stories like the two above. Put on your kevlar and helmets, it’s time to go to war!

Merry Christmas.

    Oh, don’t be such a persnickety cricket! Ignore the foolishness and just enjoy the season. I can’t wait for it to be December and get colder so I can wear the Coolest Santa Hat Ever. It never fails to get a smile from everyone who sees it.

    Persnickety Cricket! I haven’t heard that one in a while!
    We need to get Al Gore to visit so it’ll drop below 75.

    Had a lady with the Salvation Army kettle tell me Merry Christmas at the grocery store today. Sigh. At least that hasn’t been PC’ed out of fashion, yet.
