Big Rollerblades To Fill
March 1st 2012. On that day The conservative movement lost the most vibrant, vital, and vocal leader we’ve had in decades, the inimitable Andrew Breitbart. Of course, when I say “inimitable”, it’s not for a lack of people who, surely with good intentions, declared that they “are” Andrew Breitbart. That’s writing a pretty big check, and sadly, it’s a check that’s bounced. Badly.
The Annual War on Christmas (It’s Not What You Think)
Every year at this time the airwaves become filled with complaints about how an increasingly secular society is waging war on Christmas because one store tells its employees to say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas” or some national coffee chain’s holiday cups aren’t “Christmassy” enough. The fact of the matter is that all of these stores have been working to take Christ out of Christmas for quite some time and a whole lot of Christians go happily along with the plan. Rather than Christmas, December 25th should be called “Consumermas”, because that is what it seems to be all about.
Peace on Earth?
People got politics in my Christmas. And I’m exhausted by it. The idea that there’s a War on Christmas isn’t entirely without merit, but this hypersensitivity is driving me crazy. And I can’t escape it. I don’t watch television, so I miss much of the advertising that goes around. But people take these battles over the holidays right into my social media feed. It finds ME. This week alone I’ve had to hear about Starbucks cups and Santa glaciers, AND IT ISN’T EVEN THANKSGIVING YET.
Consider The Source. Really.
So the other day JD drew my attention to a video by the Vlog Brothers entitled ‘Benghazi: Explained’ and I knew we were in for trouble. I’ve been chewing on it for a couple of days, and it’s something I think we need to talk about. You’re going to want to set aside a block of time for this post, because this isn’t going to be an easy one, or one that will be a quick read. Settle in; we need to get serious here.
