Most I read said "so what, who cares?"

Frankly I am more interested in knowing what state.
Obviously the Obama-led, crypto-fascist, Kenyan, socialist, anti-American state that's in bed with the rapacious, Christian right, WalMart retailing cabal. Duh.

I think you left out the "Those who disagree..." part at the beginning of my sentence. I was specifically referring to "most of the comments" coming from those who say or imply that we should not associate ourselves with Christmas. I am fully aware that most of the comments on this thread take indifferent positions.

Well, I'm not exactly a fan of America, people aren't bad, I just don't like the way it looks...

A single action is worth more than the words it takes to describe it.

Better check your irony detector; is the fuse blown? Consider

I understand. We are getting a little chunky around the middle.

I checked my fusebox, nothing out of the ordinary, aside from what I think was a skink taking refuge from the rain...

I'm sure my irony detector is still functional..

Bah! Humbug! ... At least that's what I do. Drinking Beverage

Breathing - it's more art than science.

Seeing as it appears to be time for the ludicrous responses, see what their reaction is to "Get off my lawn! Damn carolers!"
