    Merry Christmas to all and to all a Good night.

    Of course I also think political correctness is a pansies way of ducking out of standing up for whats right.
    Anyone who doesnt like that to bad I'm not now and never will be politically correct, I may sometimes alter my way of getting the point across to spare someone unneccessary hard feelings.
    If you dont tell it like it is people have a built in excuse to construe things anyway they want.
    I feel political correctness inhibits my "Freedom Of Speech" which is, at least for now, a right of every American, and since it's Veterans day I might add it's a right every Veteran has laid his life on the line protecting, so dont squander it just because some other weenie doesnt like your oppinion of things.

    All my criticism for him will come in the form of my vote during the next election.

    They started to put out the Christmas stuff around here the same time they put out the Holloween stuff.

    Dang they hadn't even thought of plucking turkeys here before they were selling XMAS tree decorations. Wouldn't it be nice to go back in time where they actually waited for one holiday to end before moving to the next?

    Happy Holidays!!

    A good reminder from attorney Kelly Coghlan...

    "Every year at about this time, in our schools and in the market place, there seems to be confusion about the name of the holiday that occurs on December 25th. All federal holidays (and there are 10 of them) are created by federal law under the United States Code, 5 U.S.C. Section 6103. Each of the ten federal holidays is listed and named in this statute.

    To view the federal statute, click here on the website http://law.justia.com/us/codes/title5/5usc6103.html.

    The official federal holiday that occurs on December 25th is "Christmas Day." It is the only federal holiday in December. Therefore, all of us in America should not hesitate to wish everyone "Merry Christmas." By doing so, we are merely using the official and correct name of the federal holiday, as provided by federal law. One is operating on a sound legal basis when proclaiming "Merry Christmas" (and asking schools and companies to call the holiday by its correct federal name).

    What about "Happy Holidays"? We also have a federal holiday named "Labor Day," but we don't go around wishing everyone "Happy Holidays" leading up to the first Monday of September. Why should Christmas be any different? We should all call the holiday by its official legal name as stated in federal law: "Christmas." Few people know this. Pass it on. Merry Christmas!

    Sincerely,
    Kelly Coghlan"


    I whole-heartedly agree, but I might start saying "Happy Holidays" for all of the other holidays, just to be ornery!

    Merry Christmas. Even at work where I am supposed to be politically correct and am expected to say happy holidays.
