OT -- Enough!

Super market yesterday - a guy was sitting on a big chair in a Santa suit - kids lining up to sit on Santa's lap having a great time. Santa kept saying "Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas."
You know the scene.

Some a-- came up and told Santa he couldn't say Merry Christmas. He wasn't an employee - just some jerk off the street.

Sorry, I went postal. I told the SoB he wasn't big enough or smart enough to stop me from saying it - or anyone else! I said it several times right in his face. "Merry Christmas"!!!!

I was honestly hoping he'd take a swing at me.

Unfortunately he didn't. I wasn't going to swing first, but I would swing last!

The folks gathered around with their kids looked like they were going to take him apart too!

If I went to Asia I certainly wouldn't expect them to not mention Budda or celebrate Budda's holidays. I certainly wouldn't expect Middle Eastern countries to not talk about Mohammed or celebrate those holidays.

We speak ENGLISH here, and celebrate Christmas. Whoever doesn't like it has 2 choices, leave, or call Dr. Kevorkian.

This "politically correct" stuff has to stop! Time to make yourself known! Write your mayors, city fathers, governors and congressmen - don't bother with your Senators - they can't read. Don't forget your newspapers.

Boycott stores that use "happy Holidays" instead of Merry Christmas.

We CAN stop this crap once and for all IF enough people stand up and be heard.

Hang 'em high!

Re: OT -- Enough!

Yesterday - right here in Yucca Valley! To me!

Why would you think I passed it on?

He He - I may be old, and with a heart condition, but that wouldn't stop me from shoving my thumbs through his eyes!
Old yes, dead no!

Besides, the way the crowd around was acting - the women would have torn him apart too.

Re: OT -- Enough!

I have said this for some time. We have let politcal correctness and making everyone happy get in the way of the things that started this country. There are so many examples of this in this country that you couldnt possibly name them all. My favorite is the requirement for high school student to learn spanish. What is the logic behind this? To be able to interact with Spanish speaking people who you may incounter in the United States later in life.

Here's an idea, how anout we spend those funds on teaching the damn Mexicans how to speak ENGLISH instead of us going out of our way to make thier lives easier.

Sorry for the thread high jack, just had to vent that real quick. If you dont like the way we do things here go back home, buncha damn illegals

Re: OT -- Enough!

Actually I can relate to this story. My dad has worked as a mall Santa in the past trying to make some extra holiday cash to pay for us kids, and I think he only did it for a very short period of time because of this. He was actually instructed by the mall he was working for that he wasn't allowed to say "Merry Christmas" to the kids coming to sit on Santa's lap. Now why on earth is a kid going to sit on Santa's lap if they don't believe in Santa? He didn't stick with that job for too long because it was so rediculous.

Re: OT -- Enough!

Rich, Thank you! Thank you for getting in his Face and Letting it be known to ALL that were around you, just what you thought.

BTW, Steer clear the new Honda commercial. I couldn't believe it... they are singing "We Wish you a Merry Christmas" Song... but they were'nt saying Merry Christmas... We Wish you Happy Holidays....

That's what I thought at first too, but if you listen closely it's "Happy Honda days."
