Yes Virginia, There is a War on Christmas

    There was a little snow this morning, but its melted putting in doubt the prospects for a white Christmas. Still we are in the holiday spirit, although this morning I realized I may have subliminally become a soldier in the War on Christmas.
    I was in line at the bank chatting with an off duty trooper and as we left, I said, "have a good holiday"....He replied "Merry Christmas."
    There you have it. As a long time, politically correct, secular humanist politician, I reflexively said "holiday" instead of "Christmas".
    Bill O'Reilly is right !

Only Communists, Marxists and Socialists say “Happy Holidays.” REAL Americans like Bill O’Reilly say “Merry Christmas!” And for a little added effect, it doesn’t hurt to throw in a little “Ho Ho Ho” every once in awhile.

Geesh… I thought you knew all this.

I always figured when someone said 'Happy Holidays', they were just combining Christmas and New Years, collectively 'the Holidays'. I see nothing nefarious about this. Hell,wasn't there a song made in the forties called "Happy Holidays"? I think the Tea Party nuts read too much into all this as a way to blame their despised black man in the White House for "changing" America. It is all much ado about nothing

Mister Mayor, you ought to just register as a Democrat again. You are making light of the war on Christmas by using a casual harmless encounter to trivialize when the real thing happens.

If by registering as a “Democrat” you mean choosing between the Party of Sanity vs. the Party of Lunacy, then yeah, that would be a far better option.

If "Sanity" means, "taking from others" and "insanity" means "taking care of yourself" then yes, that is what I meant.
