Merry Christmas Anyway !!!!
Merry Christmas Anyway !!!
The tree is festively adorned with unique, memory-stirring
ornaments. The “Nativity Scene”, in all its politically incorrect
grandeur, sits proudly atop the mantel. Gifts are openly
hidden in the same closet they always are. Wafts of oatmeal
butterscotch cookies seductively entice from the kitchen.
Yes it’s Christmas time once again, and this year the lame
ducks of the 111th Congress have a present for you. Don’t
be surprised; it’s the same gift they’ve been giving for two
years. It’s a fully extended middle finger contemptuously
wrapped with thousands of pages of liberty-killing legalese,
all of course charged to YOU.
Having ensured that the great-grandchildren of the next
batch of New-Year’s babies will only know bed-time stories
of America’s economic greatness, and paying dearly at the
polls for it, the Democrat-Communists (Demonists) couldn’t
wait to try to reclaim for Progressive-Statism every area of
American-life they’d missed during the previous two years.
And so, in the true spirit of Yuletide sharing, the Demonists
let about a dozen Republican-Wimps (Republi-wimps) help them
attempt to compromise food security, military culture and nuclear
Of course, like most legislation that’s been passed within the
past twenty years, this lame duck push for new law is
redundant, wasteful, even dangerous. The Demo-nists know
this, so they really aren’t comfortable when the average person
That would explain why they’ve boldly encouraged some of their
FCC commissioners to enact Net Neutrality, under the guise of
ethical business practices. It’s the first step in what they hope
will give them the power to control the internet like it’s done in
their favorite country, China.
Yes, while you were getting ready for Christmas, the Demonists
and Republiwimps were continuing construction on the legislative
gallows from which they plan one day to hang us. And I was
damn mad about it.
But then last night, driving home through the neighborhood,
the various displays of Christmas lights illuminated for me the
fact that despite the best efforts of the 111th Congress,
America was still here. There was still Christmas. Take that
Then I remembered, they hadn’t gotten Cap & Trade. Had the
Demonists and Republiwimps been able to effect Cap & Trade,
the cost of many of these Christmas light displays might prove
prohibitive. Or, worse yet, the current for these displays on
private property would be controlled at a centralized grid,
manned no doubt by some Obama-loving bureaucrat.
Knowing it wasn’t likely that bureaucrat would free up some
power for a few politically incorrect light displays, I suddenly
wasn’t seeing Christmas lights, I saw a victory. A small victory
to be sure, but a victory nonetheless.
I think it’s Jefferson who mostly gets the credit for this quote:
“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance” If the people of
America haven’t learned that after the last two years, perhaps
one day those Christmas lights will be gone. Perhaps even
Christmas itself will be considered “hate speech”.
MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!! The fight continues !!
