I haven’t shopped at a mall for years. However, I do remember the days when our children were very young and used to take them to a department store in a metro are we lived near. That experience was always wonderful, for the children and for my husband and me. I know I am a senior citizen and have memories of happier times. I wish the kids of today could experience the same things I did and our children did. For instance: We would drive into the city and get on a “Christmas Bus” and go downtown to a department store. The top floor had “Santa’s workshop” where only children were allowed to go to buy gifts (for under 1.00). Elves and Santa were on hand to make the trip fun. Yes, we let our kids believe in Santa, the reindeer, the whole nine yards that fills the dreams of children’s minds. But we also taught them the true meaning of Christmas which is the greatest Gift of all…The gift of Jesus who laid down His life in our place on the Cross so that one day we may also rise as He rose.
God gave to us the greatest Gift of all. Therefore we give. Not just at this time of the year, but all year long. God bless Gonzo
They better not cancel parades. I like Kicka’s idea, too….call on AMERICAN Patriots to escort the parades with their concealed and open carries! NRA Motorcycle clubs, Vets, Militias. Show the world we are One Nation, Under God, Indivisible, with Justice for all. Let’s have a blow-out million American Family Parade right down Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the Islamist in our House.
But if the turd blows himself and armed Americans up, guns won't matter at that point.
After the way I’ve been demonizwd, I refuse to place myself in harms way so a bunch of liberals can go safely to their pride parades.
Best of luck to yall. I’m sure they will welcome you with open arms.

“The New York Daily News went after the National Rifle Association Executive Vice President and CEO Wayne LaPierre with its Monday cover — likening the pro-gun author and advocate to a jihadist.”
Foolish journalism written by foolish people. Liberty to protect oneself. What an bad idea, right New York Daily News? I don’t think you published such an article after 9/11. Further, I don’t think you would object to a concealed carrying American citizens from saving your ass if you would ever come under attack. Just sayin’

“Richard Haas, an American diplomat and president of the Council on Foreign Relations, said on Monday there are serious implications if a recent New York Times report suggesting the Obama administration “cooked” intel on the Islamic State turns out to be true.”
From the New York Times to the CFR. A “suggestion” that may or may not be true. Just think about it…the Council on Foreign Relations (an arm of the NWO) is floating a suggestion from the progressive New York Times, undermining the CFR/Tri-Lateral Commission’s water-boy (Obama) for the New World Order. Sounds like a commercial for the 2016 democratic ticket to me. ticket

This guy has no fire in his belly for the job of President.
He doesn’t even know that this is a spiritual struggle. The civilational struggle is a side-effect of this spiritual struggle in the hearts of man.

I am offended at having to pay taxes for an educational system that indoctrinates children and young adults with the “there is no God” ideology.
Just get on with reality already.
Morning, LOUISE! Thanks for your comment above and an earlier one under a post of mine. Here's information for you, too, if you haven't already seen it elsewhere. Our government has run amuck.Of course, the congress critters who haven't paid their back taxes are excused. https://www.newsmax.com/Finance/StreetTalk/passport-taxes-congress-irs/2015/11/22/id/703168/?ns_mail_uid=81060895&ns_mail_job=1644094_11222015&s=al&dkt_nbr=xr5jskeh
Hey Kicka...thanks for this good link! God bless
It is time to start billing the Gv for all the time, labor and resources. And irreplaceable life that is lost. To include lost or missed opportunity due the time spent meet their regulations. And it is theirs. Unless they can prove the majority physically approved "PER' act.
It would be just as illegal for public schools to suggest 'there is no god' as it would be for them to suggest 'there is a god'.
Lack of endorsement of one ideology does not equal endorsement of another. God does not belong in schools.
I do not understand what you mean by a "there is no god" ideology. Schools and colleges should teach factual subjects and any idea of religion or god is not factual just imaginary and should be left for children to find out about in their own time
Who the bleep are you to say that any idea of religion or God is not factual and just imaginary? Prove it, please. Schools should teach facts from ALL sides and let the students decide for themselves. They shouldn't just teach facts from just one side, imbecile. That's called indoctrination.

It’s never trivial! We are to pray unceasingly. Amen Kicka
Even while performing bodily functions of excretion?
Oh, sorry. That IS prayer.
Now, now, that was not very gentle.
Seems your real self is 'coming out.'
I happily admit that that was my snark setting pegged to 11.
Yeah well ...
some glorify in their shame ...
Some are not ashamed of their religion. Some are not ashamed of not having a religion.
Not having a 'religion' was not my point.
and unless your stupid you know what was.
Well then, I guess I'm just stupid. (Though, I do know how to properly use the contraction of "you are".)
You attempted to impute some shame to me. Why don't you use your words, such as they are, to be explicit about what it is that you believe I should be ashamed.

““If anybody is ‘offended’ by something so trivial as a prayer, they deserve to be offended.”
Trivial? Hawkins is saying,”In your face, God”.
BTW, what is a “gentle atheist”? lol
someone with soft marshmallows for brains I think!
He's also defending free speech. Pray for him and accept an ally in our fight for free speech.
To an atheist, a prayer is about as trivial as it gets. I don't think he meant to offend, just being frank.

When I posted the first one, it could be seen immediately. then several minutes later it was taken down. So I re-posted. That one also could be seen immediately, then several minutes late it was taken down, too. What is curious is that the lapsed time between my postings was longer than what you can read right now over to the right. This is not the first time this has happened to me. Yes, I am a pretty patient woman when it comes to digital screw-ups…..but I am spoiled by instantaneous postings, too.

Ok, Blaze, I want an explanation of why you have deleted 2 of my posts on this article this morning. Was it because I had a link to breitbart.com? What is the reason?
