the reason for the season

“Is there not an appreciation for the Jewish holidays? The Christmas holiday? Kwanzaa? All the other things that families come together around? Bonding rituals important to the strength of our society? Do we not care about that? Well, the American people do. And they want to shop for it.”

- Wednesday, December 12, 2012, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on the house floor

    Congress should not be allowed to beak until there is a solution to the nation’s financial debacle.

    They have been “working on this” far too long to be allowed to take a break with no agreement.

    The tyrant Obama refuses to budge from his Communist ideals, carefully hidden by the Democratic pimped “news” media.

    And then the BASTARD goes on vacation.

    With tens of thousands of military votes still uncounted.

    THE COMMIE OBAMUNIST BASTARDS CHEATED AND THEY ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT!

    THEY ARE VILIFYING THOSE OF US WHO WANT TO ADHERE TO THE CONSTITUTION.

    And we haven’t seen their real ugliness yet.

    But we soon will, and not even the brainwashed fools who voted for the asshole will like it.

    Every time I see her, I remember Dennis Miller saying that when he realized she was the new Speaker of The House, He felt like he woke up lying in a field and the monkeys were riding ponies.

    The consequence of a big block of the population determined to vote for people nearly as silly as themselves. It’s called identity politics, or some damn thing that sounds better than it is.

    Nancy Pelosi – a living monument to banal stupidity.
    Or stupid banality. Either works for me.

    I couldn’t force myself to click on that link. I only have so much time left, and just the thought of checking-out while reading something that came out of her cake hole scared me halfway there.

    So, to Rep. Pelosi, the birth of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Son of G_d is a “bonding ritual?”

    A bonding ritual? The one day when this Earth received its King, the day when the Creator of all of Heaven and Earth sent his Son to save every willing soul on this planet and this woman has the ignorance to refer to that as a “bonding ritual”….

    What do you do with that?

    Forgive me father for I have sinned: All I know about Kawanza(sp…) is some prisoner invented it a couple decades ago. I don`t know anybody who celebrates it, but one can never tell who might show up on this Blog. Are gifts exchanged? Never seen Kawanza in any big box stores; ever. Sooo, is a hardware store the place? Like, you know, to select *files* for instance or a pouch w small tools for unlocking doors, like on McGiver? I am so dumb…….

    It wasn’t a prisoner, it was a “counterculture” thug, criminal, and FBI informant who created it with a smattering of random African anecdotes and a healthy smattering of Communist Manifesto and racial separatism.

    He did do time in prison for torturing two women with, among other things, a vise and a soldering iron. But the Kwanzaa thing came later.

    If you look at “mainstream” sites they skip all of that and rewrite it as all happy-fun inclusiveness. It’s like we have some kind of volunteer Ministry of Truth.

    At least one governor, and lots of local communities, are putting up “holiday trees”. This is most likely to avoid offending Muslims (many of whom are born to be offended), or atheists (who should just roll up their eyes and moveon), and their close cousins, the anti-theists.

    OK, then, if it’s a “holiday tree”, let’s put it up again on the 4th of July, and Labor Day, and, …

    Speaking of the Constitution (some of them may have heard of it), I heard someone on talk radio today say that a lot of people think that the Constitution gives us our rights.

    The Left won a long time ago, because they started with the schools.
