Give up? Multiple Choice, again:

If you haven’t heard, Chicago decided not to have the film, “The Nativity Story” at it’s annual Christmas celebration because they were worried about people getting offended and the ACLU getting involved. (= lots of leagal fees.)
Have people in America always been such a bunch of whining babies? Are people being forced at machete point to watch The Nativity Story?
What’s the freekin’ deal? If something offends me I just avoid it or ignore it. I don’t threaten to sue someone cause my “civil liberties” are suddenly under fire.
This is getting way out of hand.
I call to start a National Movement/Petition/whatever called: “CHILL (the crap) OUT!”
If anything, the current interpretation ala: “separation of church and state” has only caused more useless lawsuits, intolerable whining, idiotic collateral government decisions, and a general Un-Sensativity (aka. intolerance…I know – the sacred cow) in the general public.
Anyway, If I was the Mayer in Chicago I would tell people to stuff it. If they don’t think that the Birth of Christ is why Christmas is celebrated then they should go take a History class and stuff a cork in it!
Uh, time for a Multiple Choice question:
Thanks goes to Randy Vogl for notifying me about this one.
A quote by Arthur Brooks on the HH show:
“A few months back, uh, after the tax returns were released from last year there was a kind of a scandal about the fact that Vice President Cheney made so much money. He made about 8 million dollars–he and his wife did, that, you know, the Vice President of the United States is so rich in a country where not everybody’s rich, and so forth and so on. The part of the study–the part of the story you didn’t hear was the fact that the Cheneys gave more than 6 Million dollars away.
The Cheneys are unbelievably charitable. Now this, frankly, doesn’t fit with the pattern that we’re trying to, (in the press, typically) – were [they're] trying to make of Dick Cheney as a big mean guy, a big Halliburton money grubbing venial guy. In fact, unbelive…I mean, imagine giving away 80% of your paycheck?!?
Interesting, definately worthy of: What the Crap?
…and all of your household.
Seriously – It’s because of idiot spammers that you always have to type in those stupid
scewed random text codes things Word Verifiers. The worst part is that sometimes the word verifiers are so crazy, often, I can’t even figure out what letters are what. Here’s a question: What do you have to gain from leaving spam comments on random blogs? Do you really think people are big enough morons to believe, “I really enjoyed your blog – nice content. Check out my site,”
Ok, I retract that though – people are morons. Still – spam causes so many problems that I think the punishment needs to be heightened. Here are some suggestions:
Anyway, perhaps I am getting carried away. Either way – Blog comment spam get’s my “What the Crap?” for the day.
Type the word above to leave a comment:
I listen to the Hugh Hewitt radio show all the time at work for many reasons?
Well, at least the latest one where they were poking fun at Kenny Loggins Christmas music and Canadian Mobs was hilarious. It was especially nice to take a bit of the sting away surrounding political discussion.
Great show, interesting guests and topics, no commercials, Not a butt-kisser – Check it out here.
Let me know what you think!
