War on Christmas

Well, I know most of you already know about the so-called "War on Christmas" that Bill O'Reilley is pushing with his pal John Gibson (who's really just trying to shill his book - wonder if BO gets a cut).

Anyway, I just joined Americans United for the first time and it's because of one reason: Rob Boston ROCKS!

Check out this video .

I have been really disappointed with some of our Progressive leaders because they just don't seem to want to lead - they've allowed the Religious Right to run rough shod over the US. Rob Boston really goes on the attack in the above video, and rightly so. These guys are LIARS!

Go Ro-ob, go Ro-ob, go Ro-ob!

Then there's the stupid House Resolution 579 recently passed to "protect" Christmas.

Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and (Engrossed as Agreed to or Passed by House)

H. Res. 579
In the House of Representatives, U.S.,
December 15, 2005.

Whereas Christmas is a national holiday celebrated on December 25; and

Whereas the Framers intended that the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States would prohibit the establishment of religion, not prohibit any mention of religion or reference to God in civic dialog: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives--

(1) recognizes the importance of the symbols and traditions of Christmas;
(2) strongly disapproves of attempts to ban references to Christmas; and
(3) expresses support for the use of these symbols and traditions, for those who celebrate Christmas.

Come on guys! We're at war where real guns are being fired. Can we worry about that war, instead?

I love this video that addresses the silliness of this "war". Congressman John Dingell is a new hero of mine!
