No one provokes me with impunity

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

Merry — er . . .Politically Correct Version

Merry — er . . .

From the national review online:


To All My Liberal Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.



To All My Conservative Friends:
MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Priceless!! That just leaves my feeling all warm and fuzzy inside. Where's my blankey and my cookie?

Classic!

Nothing says lovin' like a good politically-correct holiday festival solstice greeting of implied warmth!

Rich, Merry belated Christmas to you and yours as well!

I'm looking forward to 2010 being a banner year for stuff to blog about!
