This will be the second year that my family will choose not to celebrate the annual consumerism festival. Instead of exchanging gifts with friends and family that ultimately feed the regifting loop and next season’s garage sale, we ask that everyone make donations to their own favorite charities in our honor as we do the same. Christmas is about giving in love in honor of God’s gift to us. Not Snuggies and gift certificates to Victoria’s Secret.

of course… YOU are tangible evidence. otherwise we are left with trying to understand how we started with a whole lot of NOTHING, then nothing happened to the nothing but it magically exploded for no reason creating EVERYTHING. Then little bits of everything magically by chance rearranged themselves into self replicating bits that turned into dinosaurs. This exceptionally astute and logical ‘science’ comes from the very same ‘scientists’ that just recently (in the grand scheme of things) told us unequivocally that the world was flat, disease was caused by ‘bad humors in the air’ and people could be cured of them by bleeding them to death. Yes, by all means, trust implicitly and only in the minds of men, they have done so well so far…I give you the global warmists who KNOW what the temperatures will be in a decade but couldn’t prevent my motorcycle ride from being rained out today… if you can’t predict tomorrow reliably how can you predict a year from now? These are the same human minds that can learn to feed the world, but can’t get people to stop killing themselves and each other long enough to distribute the food.

Girl Scouts are one of the few organizations that still recognize the value of public faith. Any troop or council will be as liberal or as conservative as the community members that participate. For the poster who said that ‘God’ was taken out of the Law, that is incorrect. Girls are allowed to apply their own definition of God to it, but the Girl Scout Law and promise are intact. Girls may still earn religious awards in their various faiths that are worn as part of the official uniform. And for the record, Boy Scouts have Explorer troops that are coed and allow girls. I speak from experience, having been troop leaders in both.

Only in Big Brother’s Newspeak can we express the failure to get meaningful spending cuts and debt reduction as “The Tea Party won!” They think this will make us go away but they are wrong. We did have an impact, but not nearly enough. We need more conservatives with actual principles and spines in the House, Senate and Whitehouse.
