"Merry Christmas" versus "Happy Holidays"

OK here's the deal. We have people dying needlessly because of wars, poverty, hunger, disease. There are children in this country who don't have homes or shoes, people who don't know where their next meal is coming from. Our educational and healthcare systems stink, gas and heat cost a fortune, and racism and greed are thriving problems. Surely there are more important things to bitch about than whether the clerk at Walmart wishes you "Happy Holidays" or "Merry Christmas". Why is respect for diversity suddenly such a bad thing? Seriously, some of these whiners act like political correctness has robbed them of an essential American right. The bottom line: Not everybody celebrates Christmas or even believes in Christ, and you know what? In America, IT'S ALLOWED.

So HAPPY HOLIDAYS everybody.
May JesusAllahBuddhaKrishna bless you on whatever holiday(s) you choose to celebrate. Personally, I plan on having a very lovely Christmas :). Thanks for reading.

If you want to put the shoe on the other foot, try working for a government agency or state school where they make it just short of a criminal act to even say "Merry Christmas". Christianity is a major part of our heritage and is probably still the major religion in America, but in the name of diversity, governments and Hollywood seem to want us to feel guilty for that.

It was certainly refreshing to see Cavuto's Christmas on FOX and note that not all the media have jumped on the anti-Christmas bandwagon.
