Please stop, Please!?!

Well it's that time of year, Holly Jolly, and Ho Ho Ho. Oh yeah and the time when every secular progressive, or "wannabe" comes out and complains about something that bothers them about Christmas, and displays regarding the Holiday. I've already seen such things on local news, and national news and I'm sick and tired of it. I'm not going to rehash other arguments I've posted in the past on this topic. Rather, I'd like to offer this. Outside of any religious context, Christmas is a FEDERAL holiday recognized by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT of this country. In that regard, it is no different than Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Memorial Day, or Martin Luther King Jr. Day. As such, there should be no restriction on decorating of public land for this Holiday, just as there are no restrictions on decorations for any of the other FEDERAL holidays. If public buildings (city hall, parks, post offices) can post displays of Fireworks, Turkeys and Pilgrims, Portraits of Martin Luther King Jr. there should be no reason why a nativity scene cannot be put up. Oh and just in case you wanted to argue that this country is secular in nature, check out these familiar lines...

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

No should we go back and change this document to make secular progressives feel good? Or... maybe it would be more fitting if they actually practiced about the concept of "tolerance" that they so brazenly preach about, and so openly wish all would follow. In other words, grow up, practice what you preach, and realize that no-one is intending to insult you or hurt your feelings by celebrating a Holiday formally recognized by this Nation.

Hey it's me!

Sorry I was gone for so long, had a lot of things happening recently, busy, busy, busy. I'll not bore you with that stuff, but rather talk about lite fare. Thing #1: Jim Norton's Monster Rain standup on HBO is priceless, if you haven't seen it, you must. Thing #2: I just watched a film called Amazing Grace. I thought it was wonderful. It had some of my favorite actors in it, (Michael Gambon, Albert Finney, Ciaran Hinds, Rufus Sewell) and is a fascinating true story. A word to you all, if you choose to view this film, I hope you like British History and Politics, as the movie is basically a 2 hour long House of Commons debate. Thing #3: Call of Duty 4 is now in my "Top 10 Video Game list" Damn it, and I just changed that recently. My friend has it on his 360, and it is unreal.

You Rock!

Ok, so by now I'm sure you've all heard of Guitar Hero. I think it is the best 'party video-game' ever invented. The premise is simple play songs on a guitar shaped video game controller in accordance with the color coded 'notes' scrolling on the screen. Simple? Oh no my friends. I just picked up my copy of Guitar Hero III for my Nintendo Wii last week. (yay Best Buy gift cards!) The song list is phenomenal, best yet in my humble opinion, but the difficulty level has definitely been ramped up. It's simple to learn, nigh impossible to master. I keep trying though, it's too addictive to stop.

-In other news, some friends and I had a discussion last night at the bar, about what comedic films we thought were the most funny. I really had to think of my top ten, so here goes: (in order)

1. Wedding Crashers
2. Caddyshack
3. Swingers
4.(tie) Christmas Vacation
4. (tie) European Vacation
4. (tie) Vacation
5. Old School
6. Animal House
7. Borat
8. Blazing Saddles
9. Monthy Python and the Holy Grail
10. Anchorman

How about you?
