    Merry Christmas,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
    MERRY CHRISTMAS - YOUR FIRST CHRISTMAS CARD

    Cleverly done!!!
    T'was two months before Christmas
    When all through our land,
    Not a Christian was praying
    Nor taking a stand.
    Why the PC Police had taken away
    The reason for Christmas - no one could say.
    The children were told by their schools not to sing
    About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things.
    It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
    December 25th is just a 'Holiday'.
    Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and credit
    Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it.
    CDs from Madonna, an X BOX, an I-Pod
    Something was changing, something quite odd!
    Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
    In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda.
    As Targets were hanging their trees upside down
    At Lowe's the word Christmas - was no where to be found.
    At K-Mart and Staples and Penny's and Sears
    You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your ears.
    Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-is-ty
    Are words that were used to intimidate me.
    Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf Blitzen
    On Boxer, on Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton!
    At the top of the Senate, there arose such a clatter
    To eliminate Jesus, in all public matter.
    And we spoke not a word, as they took away our faith
    Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
    The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
    The reason for the season, stopped before it started.
    So as you celebrate 'Winter Break' under your 'Dream Tree'
    Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me.
    Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
    Shout MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
    Please, all Christians join together and
    wish everyone you meet
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    Christ is The Reason for the Christ-mas Season!
    If you agree please forward, if not, simply delete.

    Pray for our nation

    Why is it that the politicians want to remove Christ from everything
    yet they almost always close their speeches with "God Bless America"?

    As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.

    Make this year different. This year Americans can give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Oh.... Yes there is!

    Everyone -- yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

    Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

    Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

    Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down the Benjamins on a Chinese-made flat-screen TV? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

    There are a gazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint.

    Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

    How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

    Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

    My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

    OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

    Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip.

    And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

    Honestly people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community.

    If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

    You see, Christmas should no longer be about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is now about caring about US (We the People), encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we could not imagine.

    Have a merry American Christmas

    Well said, JTJ. Some good ideas, too.
