Christmas




 Christmas

*Twas the month before Christmas*
*When all through our land,*
*Not a Christian was praying*
*Nor taking a stand.*
*See the PC Police had taken away,*
*The reason for Christmas - no one could say.*
*The children were told by their schools not to sing,*
*About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.*
*It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say*
* December 25th is just a ' Holiday '.*
*Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit*
*Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it!*
*CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-pod*
*Something was changing, something quite odd! *
*Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa*
*In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.*
*As Targets were hanging their trees upside down*
* At Lowe's the word Christmas - was nowhere to be found.*
*At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears*
*You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.*
*Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty*
*Are words that were used to intimidate me.*
*Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen*
*On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton !*
*At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter*
*To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.*
*And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith*
* Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace*
*The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded*
*The reason for the season, stopped before it started.*
*So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'*
*Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.*
*Choose your words carefully, choose what you say*
*Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS ,
not Happy Holidays!*


 Please, all Christians join together and
wish everyone you meet during the
holidays a
MERRY CHRISTMAS!
Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!

Southern Charm


Two informally dressed ladies happened to start up a conversation during an endless wait in the LAX airport.

The first lady was an arrogant California woman married to a wealthy man. The second was a well mannered elderly woman from the South. When the conversation centered on whether they had any children, the California woman started by saying, "When my first child was born, my husband built a beautiful mansion for me." The lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?" The first woman continued, "When my second child was born, my husband bought me a beautiful Mercedes-Benz.. Again, the lady from the South commented, "Well, isn't that precious?" The first woman continued boasting, "Then, when my third child was born, my husband bought me this exquisite diamond bracelet. Yet again, the Southern lady commented, "Well, isn't that precious?" The first woman then asked her companion, "What did your husband buy for you when you had your first child?" "My husband sent me to Charm School," declared the Southern lady. "Charm School?" the first woman cried, "Oh, my God! What on earth for?"

The Southern lady responded, "Well for example, instead of saying "Who gives a CRAP?" I learned to say, "Well, isn't that precious!"



We Noticed

"WE NOTICED"

This was written by Sherry Hackett, Buddy Hackett's widow.

President Obama:

Today I read of your administrations' plan to re-define
September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it's time we
had a talk. During your campaign, Americans watched as you made
mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart
when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four
people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition.

YES, "We noticed."

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say
that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not
America, has 57 states.

YES, "We noticed."

When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently
placed a flower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly tossed
your flower onto the pile without leaning over.

YES, "We noticed."

Every time you apologized to other countries for America 's
position on an issue we have wondered why you don't share our
pride in this great country. When you have heard foreign
leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended
us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.

YES, "We noticed."

When your pastor of 20 years, "God-damned America " and said
that 9/11 was America's chickens coming home to roost" and you
denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered
how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church
and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so.

YES, "We noticed."

When you announced that you would transform America , we
wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country
on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, "if not for America and the
people who built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House now.
" Prior to your election to the highest office in this country, you were a
senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records
available, not a very remarkable one.

YES, "We noticed."

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded
yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions
for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them
are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or
affection for this country and her traditions.

YES, "We noticed."

You are 9 months into your term and every morning millions of
Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek
to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform
package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation.

YES, "We noticed."

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are
not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled
"un-American","racist". We wonder how we are supposed to let you
know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests
seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans
had the right to speak out.

YES, "We noticed."

On September 11, 2001, there were no Republicans or Democrats,
only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in
whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because
we are Americans.

And YES, "We noticed."

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could
help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy
this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us.

YES, "We noticed."

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose
to make 9/11 a "National Service Day". While we know that you don't
share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your
proposal as what it is...a disgrace.

YES, "We noticed."

You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you
hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and
policy.

YES, "We noticed.."

We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When
Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office.

Take notice.
