No, my friend Darby. We are not under attack. Dem or Rep, lib or con ... we are not naive ... I walk, I drive ... I go to Church ... drive by churches ... neighborhoods .... The sad thing ... you underestimate the power, the spirit, and the joy ... Have faith .... the Jewish are celebrating, the Catholics, the Methodists, the Episcopals ... and all ... denominations ... and non-denominations ... and those who do not share --- but respect -- the faith .... Oh Holy Night ... close your eyes ... remember that glorious choir ... singing that song .... Therein resides the true spirit of Christmas .... not bitter .... not angry ... not naive .... full of faith .... humble .... faith .... Merry Christmas.
Nice macho post. Why don't you tour the churches in America on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day? Walk in and call everyone there PC WUSSES .... Try it. Film it. And post it on you tube. Sheesh. Did you major in drama?
I've been responding to this for 10 years (at least) now. Correct me if I am wrong ... but I know Christmas ... I know Midnight Mass ... I know the rituals of the churches. No one in the United States can suppress Christmas. Next Wednesday is Christmas Eve ... a lot of people are "off" work ... some work a half day. So, around 4 PM, take a walk and listen ... things quiet down ... things slow down ... lights come on ... mangers light up ... Services begin ... the overwhelming majority of the country becomes quiet ... traffic is slower .... things slow down ... 4:30 PM ... the Children's Mass ... another Mass at 8 PM .. then the wonderful Midnight Mass .... and the morning .... Masses ... services ... 8 AM ... 9 AM ... 10 AM ... drive by the churches ... they are full. Nobody ... whether well-intentioned or evil-intentioned ... can stop what happens .... Yes, it is too material .... but it remains .... since Christmas was distinguished from European Harvest and Pagan rituals ... the birth of Christ. No one ... in the secular world (which is secondary) ... can rob or take away or make war on this ..... Again, on Wednesday and Thursday of next week, drive by the churches .... drive through neighborhoods .... creches .... as big as imaginable are out .... lights ... prayers ... There is no war on Christmas .... dissident voices yes .... we have confidence .... This is my 63rd Christmas ... I love it ... people love it ... Christian or not.... glad tidings and joy ... forget what angers you .... it is Christmas ... will always be .... despite the cacophony ... Merry Christmas.
Nixon, too? And Ford? And Reagan? And other presidents since Nixon who did business with far greater Communist superpowers.
You sound right out of Saul Alinsky, et al. Corporations? You mean the job creators, no?
If this is so-called treason? What would say of Nixon and the USSR as well as Nixon and China?
Neither did Nixon in 1972. No democratically elected government in China and Mao ranks among the biggest butchers in world history. And Republicans have been "on board" with China since then. Nixon-Ford-Reagan-Bush I-Bush II and whoever comes next to 1600 PA. Avenue with an (R) next to their name. Earl109 has a point.
In the 1960s, if the U.S. invades Cuba -- what do the Soviets do? Move on West Berlin? That would mean U.S. personnel hurt or killed. What does the U.S. do in response? What do the Soviets do then?
On your point of repealing the Electoral College. It takes 2/3 of the House and Senate (without a new Constitutional Convention) and 3/5 of the states. Explain to us ... here and now ... why small states (from Vermont to Alaska) will vote to diminish their influence? As Thomas Jefferson said, "take up your pen!" You do know that if the Electoral College is repealed that the small states will lose their over-representation in the selection of a president. You do know that, right? Go explain to Wyoming, Alaska, Vermont, Nebraska, the Dakotas and others that you wish to diminish their influence. Write it up and post it here.
