If you don’t see Merry Christmas in the window, no, you don’t go in that store! The Star of David used to do that trick.

This season's War-On-Christmas email is pushing a holiday ditty whose refrain goes "If you don't see Merry Christmas in the window, then you don't go in that store." Seems like it might be easier to mark those stores with a Star of David on the window, or would that be too obviously Nazi? On the other hand, it is refreshing to see even Dumbfox recognize the imperative of targeting commerce to make your point heard. So, boycotts do work? 29370

Violent fight, unholy sight, Machine gun fire lights the night…

screams of the wounded men, writhing in pain. Details work day and night burying the slain.. all their murders done in Christ's Holy Name, Jesus looks down, and He weeps... Jesus looks down and He weeps. Ok, so that story bugs me every year, they tell it ad nauseum, about the British and Germans taking a couple of hours break from slaughtering each other, in the name of God, at the battle of the Somme. From the German trenches comes the melody "Stillich Nacht, Heilig nacht" Then some Tommies in their trenches start singing it in English, more Germans and more Englischers join in... An impromptu Christmas party just congeals in the middle of No Man's Land. They sing songs, exchange gifts, show pictures of their families to one another... And then go right back to slaughtering each other. As you may have guessed, it's time for my annual Christmas on War uncelebration. I go to fetch my e-mail, there's a flash animation of a black Jeep SUK involved in a battle, a dual advertisement because they're also hawking a video "game" called Call of Duty - BlackOps. where the mission apparently is to go in and assassinate as many locals as possible and kidnap their leaders

The war on Christmas they worry about

What it's going to take to revisit 350ppm, to reverse climate change, is not carbon trading, wind turbines, miraculous scientific leaps, or a COP15 conference. The anti-technology has been known to us since sustainable times, when mankind didn't have to transcend his wants, because it was challenge enough to seek for his needs. Conservation.

Tis the season once more….

for the Talk Radio Hate Speech about a "war on Christmas." I don't actually think they're stupid, mind you, they know full well that they're lying... and omitting a HUGE amount of data. 11685

Jesus vs. Santa rivalry is nothing new

A holiday detente: As Easter sprung from fertility celebrations befitting the rebirth of spring, so Christmas originated from offerings of the season's greetings to the winter solstice. And while Christians might have taken over the party, they've had to retain the yule tree and other pagan party favors to ensure converts would still RSVP to the festivities. The struggle between Jesus and Santa is nothing new. 2282

The real war on Christmas

  A rabbi in Seattle wanted to put a menorah in the municipal train station to accompany a display of Christmas trees. Was he thinking the trees were another faith's religious symbols? Did he mean to ask to juxtapose a dreidel instead? 822

War On Idiocy

The WAR ON expression has come to mean what any more? War On Drugs. What did that mean? Trying to address the drug addiction problem, obviously. Wouldn't it have been better to call it: "addressing the drug addiction problem?" Declaring a war on the noun drugs has meant thousands incarcerated for being victims. 171
