War on Common Sense
Crashfrog asked:
And why would a "leftwing nutjob" be shopping at Wal-mart in the first place?
Because it's the only place to shop in the small town in which I live.
But I always drop a dollar into the bell ringer's bucket when I pass.
I don't mind being wished a Merry Christmas, and I will wish others a Merry Christmas when I'm pretty sure they won't be offended (otherwise I will wish them Happy Holidays). Hell, I like Christmas. Presents, gaudy decorations, displays of greenery, and peace on Earth and good will to all men and women -- what's not to like?
Bill O'Reilly is the only source I know of for this so-called "War on Christmas". Talk about nutjobs.
And not putting religious symbols in publically financed places is not a "War on Christmas". Trying to live peaceably among a diverse population is not a "war".

Ridiculous stories of stores selling "Holiday Trees" or "holiday lights", just pisses me off.
Odd. Why would anyone be pissed off because a privately owned establishment recognizes that it does business with a diverse clientele and wishes to be inclusive?

And isn't the main defining event of Christianity celebrated at Easter, anyways?
