WE WON'T BE SAFE WHILE POLITICAL PARTIES ARE LEGAL

My Christmas Wish List

Posted by politicalpartypooper on December 24, 2010

I’d like to say that every year, I write one of these.  I don’t.  So that’s my first wish; to review the list from the year before, find out what wishes came true, and write a new list with some repeats from the last year, and maybe some new additions…oh, who the hell am I kidding?  I’ll probably be repeating this same list every year for the rest of my life.  Here goes:

1. That Christians would just call Christmas “Christmas” and stop worrying about those who don’t.

2. That those who don’t would just shut the hell up already.  It’s a religious holiday.  Deal with it.  You’re not that important…no one cares how Christmas makes you “feel”  You’re the only one who does.

3.  That the Democratic and Republican Parties would die a peaceful, but certain death.  If not, an unpeaceful death is just as good.

4.  That we bring an end to the experiment of Free Trade, at least until the rest of the world catches up to America and Western Europe in wages and employee protections.  I don’t like unions, but the responsibility for sane, compassionate employee treatment belongs with the employer.  Shame on you for making unions a necessity.  Shame on you for shipping jobs overseas to places where unions are illegal and there are no worker protections.  In doing this, you show just how un-Christian America really is.  How would Jesus treat his employees?

5.  No more war, anywhere, ever.  It’s so uncivilized.  Of course, we still solve our diplomatic problems this way, so that wish will die with me.

6.  That Americans would stop hearing the loudest voice and start hearing the small, quiet, rational one.  In listening to the loudest voice, we have given our country over to two thuggish political parties who hold a death grip on our political process, and given birth recently to a third, thuggish party that promises to be just as inept at obeying the will of the people as the first two.

7.  That we would remember our responsibility to our children and to our neighbors before we go selfish and do something stupid that damages their lives forever.

8.  I wish that FoxNews and MSNBC would inexplicably go off the air…permanently.

9.  No more money in our politics, no more corporate or union domination over our elections.  (Did hell just drop a degree in temperature?)

10.  That somewhere, there is a real Santa for every child on earth.

11.  That birthers would just shut the hell up already.

12.  That Democrats would stop whining about the President they elected.

 

This is my Christmas wish list.  May it come true

May your Christmas be merry, and your wishes all come true.     Ω

    Re: 3,4,5,6,8,9; Sounds like a lot of irrationality on your part, 3P. Happy New Year.

    You’ve got some great thoughts there my friend. I have to say that this list is so good that I just may take it for my own.

    Anyway… I just dropped by to let you know that I am alive and well and living in my own little world away from all this hatred and derision. And I also wanted to wish you the Happiest of New Years. May all your wishes come true… and I mean all….

    Willpen…

  3. 1. That Christians would just call Christmas “Christmas” and stop worrying about those who don’t. (Oh, you approve of fake celebration[s] based upon misinformation?)

    2. That those who don’t would just shut the hell up already. It’s a religious holiday. Deal with it. You’re not that important…no one cares how Christmas makes you “feel” You’re the only one who does. (You of the ‘Room Temperature IQ’: you are completely incorrect. Government workers get the day off. That is not merely a religious vacation. Go for the facts * not just your preconceived biases.)

    3. That the Democratic and Republican Parties would die a peaceful, but certain death. (Lake: Or at least suffer irritation, severe and even mortal wounds ……..)

    4. That we bring an end to the experiment of Free Trade, (Lake: what do you want? Some thing like ‘Fair Trade’?)

    9. No more money in our politics, no more corporate or union domination over our elections. (Did hell just drop a degree in temperature?)

    10. That somewhere, there is a real Santa for every child on earth. (Lake: For what? For CHRIST MASS, oh see above! Next, large rodents laying colored chicken eggs?)

    * Jesus Christ was NOT born on December 25th (or the equivalent) in the Roman Year Zero! Was not, was not, was not!
