SAVING CHRISTMAS, ONE RESOLUTION AT A TIME

In what may be the dumbest pro-Christmas move ever made, a Virginia congresswoman has introduced a resolution putting Congress on record as supporting "symbols and traditions of Christmas."

Rep. Jo Ann Davis sucked up to the right and pissed off the left with her meaningless resolution, according to the Daily Press in Hampton Roads:
The largely symbolic resolution triggered a partisan culture clash in the House chamber. Conservative Republicans applauded the measure, but many Democrats criticized it as religiously insensitive.

Davis, an outspoken Christian conservative from Gloucester, said she was spurred to act after seeing news reports of retailers telling their employees to wish customers a "happy holiday," instead of "Merry Christmas," and schools forbidding everything from Christmas plays to Santa Claus.

"Christmas has been declared politically incorrect," Davis told colleagues on the House floor. "Any sign or even mention of Christmas in public can lead to complaints, litigation, protests and threats. America's favorite holiday is being twisted beyond recognition."
We concur. Christmas is being twisted beyond recognition. And it's Republicans who are doing most of the twisting.

"Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one."
