The First Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

November 24, 2011

The First Thanksgiving Day Proclamation

WHEREAS it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favour; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me “to recommend to the people of the United States a DAY OF PUBLICK THANKSGIVING and PRAYER, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:” ~ George Washington

Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!

Christmas is Making a Comeback!

December 21, 2009

Suddenly this year, “Christmas” is increasingly back in style.  Though some retailers (virtually all the drug store chains; Best Buy; and Gap, which owns Old Navy, Banana Republic, Forth & Towne and Piperlime for example) continue to ignore Christmas, many retailers like Wal-Mart and Bass Pro Shops lead the way in unabashedly attracting Christmas shoppers in their advertising.  Others (Lowes, K-Mart) seem to be returning to their senses, while others (Hobby lobby) never left theirs.

Outside the retail world, Christmas is making a comeback…in leaps and bounds.  For example, last year’s Hollywood Christmas Parade went to great lengths to explain the rationale for suddenly changing the name to the Hollywood Santa Parade (for good reason – click the link to their website and read it yourself). 

Known as the Santa Claus Lane Parade since its inception in 1928, the parade was renamed in 1978 as the Hollywood Christmas Parade in order to attract more celebrities.

2009 Hollywood Christmas ParadeThis year, however, and with no explanation at all, the name is back to the Hollywood Christmas Parade.  Although the parade is broadcast live the day after Thanksgiving, you can still catch it December 10th and December 24th 8:00-10:00p, local time (7:00p Central time) on MyNetworkTV.

Here’s a well done article from 2008 in the Examiner called The Christmas vs. Holiday Battle Ensues.

Visit the website of this customer-focused rate-a-retailer campaign conducted by “Stand for Christmas” (by Focus on the Family Action), where consumers can post their ratings based on their shopping experiences.  The clear message is: don’t spend your Christmas dollars at the stores owned by Naughty retailers who don’t acknowledge Christmas.

Best Buy hates Christmas and America

December 7, 2009

happy_eid This retail giant has long led the way in eschewing Christmas.  But this year, they took a giant offensive step to bite off the hands that feed them: capitalism, and Christmas.

In their Thanksgiving Day ad, Best Buy wishes their shoppers a “Happy Eid al-Adha”.  A completely unknown holiday in the West, Best Buy puts up considerable money to bet that it’s on par with Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Lenin said, “The Capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them.”  Reagan’s defense build-up forced the collapse of the Soviet Union, sparing us from completing the transaction Lenin predicted.  Best Buy seems eager to fulfill Lenin’s prophecy, only with Islam instead of Communism.

Capitalism allows Best Buy to advertise and sell to whomever they wish…and it also provides consumers with a choice on where to spend their hard-earned money.  Vote with your dollars – every dime you spend at Best Buy strengthens Islam’s growing influence on the world economy and brings President Obama’s vision for America that much closer to reality…

Christmas Chaos in Chelmsford, Massachusetts

December 5, 2009

Here’s the only copy of last night’s Impact Segment I can locate on the internet.  In it, O’Reilly reports on an elementary school in Chelmsford, Massachusetts that has banned any and all Christmas and Hanukah items, even including candy canes and stockings. Factor producer Jesse Watters paid a visit to the school, but officials refused to comment.  Watters reported on a raucous town meeting in Chelmsford.  "75% of the room supported Christmas and candy canes," Watters said, "but there’s this weird 25% who think it’s going to be offensive if they have a Menorah or a candy cane or even Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer.  They feel like the atheist children are going to feel offended and left out, and one of the parents actually compared Santa Claus to a swastika.  But other parents have said that if the school doesn’t drop the ban, they’re going to file a lawsuit saying that the school has censored religion."

Public schools receive state &/or federal funds for their average daily attendance (ADA).  In order to choke off the unresponsive education system that has long been high jacked by the Left, parents need to pull their kids from the public schools immediately.  Put them in private schools or home school them (not charter school – the public school still gets ADA money for your kids enrolled in charter schools).  For more information, contact CHEA of California or Home School Legal Defense Association.

What’s in a Name?

December 3, 2009

Christmas Vacation versus “Winter Break/Holiday”; Easter Vacation versus “Spring Break”…having homeschooled our children and, therefore, having little exposure to the public indoctrination system (aka public schools), we were unaware of the Left’s assault on the terms Christmas Vacation and Easter Vacation over the last 10 years.  Anti-theist crusaders have threatened milquetoast school board members across this nation that referring to Christmas and Easter Vacations as such violates the Constitution (written by men with Judeo-Christian beliefs) and is otherwise insensitive.

Historically, the only reason these two vacation periods have existed was to allow sufficient time off from school to celebrate the Birth and the Resurrection of Christ.  Now, the Left would have us believe that an en masse departure has suddenly occurred and these simple terms must replaced.  There’s no longer any need to recognize Christmas or Easter.  in its place, a universal desire to have a vacation in the middle of winter for no apparent reason (other than maybe to celebrate the winter solstice), followed by another vacation in spring so heathen college kids can take over resort destinations to get drunk and hold wet t-shirt contests.

The Petoskey News gives us an example of a successful return to sanity taken by the Petoskey Board of Education.  Board member Jack Waldvogel proposed, and the board voted unanimously, to rename the “winter holiday break” in the Charlevoix-Emmet Intermediate School District calendar to "Christmas break."

Daniel Dankoff wrote to the Petoskey News-Review to criticize Waldvogel saying,"We’re a nation of many faiths, and he’s jamming it down the throats of everyone who’s not a Christian."  Of course, it’s perfectly acceptable in Dankoff’s eyes for the 5% of the U.S. population that does not celebrate Christmas to jam their hatred of Christmas down everyone else’s throats.

Be sure to email Jack Waldvogel to express your support and encouragement to help him endure the assault of the Grinches.

Rasmussen: ‘Merry Christmas’ vs ‘Happy Holidays’

November 30, 2009

Sunday, November 29, 2009

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds:

  • 72% of adults prefer "Merry Christmas," while 22% like "Happy Holidays”
  • Older Americans favor "Merry Christmas" more than younger adults
  • Married adults fancy the traditional greeting a lot more than unmarrieds, although there is virtually no difference in the views of those with children in the home and those who don’t have children living with them
  • 91% of Republicans and 70% of adults not affiliated with either major political party like store signs that wish them a "Merry Christmas," compared to just 58% of Democrats
  • Last year, 68% of all adults wanted holiday signs to read "Merry Christmas," while 25% preferred "Happy Holidays"
