Season's Greetings to my Left and Right minded friends..

To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit,
my best wishes for an environmentally conscious,
socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive,
gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice
holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable
traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice,
or secular practices of your choice, with respect for
the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of
others, or their choice not to practice religious or
secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally
successful, personally fulfilling and medically
uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the
generally accepted calendar year 2008, but not without
due respect for the calendars of choice of other
cultures whose contributions to society have helped
make America great. Not to imply that America is
necessarily greater than any other country nor the
only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this
wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color,
age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual
preference of the wishee.

To My Other (intelligent) Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I think I may be sensing a teensy bit of bile in there somewhere. Your point is well-made, but color-coded or directionally-based political parties should stay out of the equation for full effect. Also, insulting the intelligence of other members is certainly not a great idea.

So the Jewish and Muslim posters aren't intelligent nor do they deserve a happy new year.

And all you non-believers, you aren't even true Americans.

This thread: negative stars!!!

I believe the intelligent refers to non-Democrats.

It's supposed to be humorous I guess. Intelligence insulting is nothing new.

^Make that the 3rd post. My lack of god clearly removed all trace of intelligence. Also, the fact I am not a god fearing american addicted to fast food.

Geez.


ps, no offence to your post, irvine, by the way. you're alright and all that, but you're gay (and as a result you're probably a heathen!), and well, your posts will never be 10/10 thread redemtion worthy. sorry mate.

An often-overlooked corollary belief of those subversive miscreants who regard 'Happy Holidays' as a courteously neutral greeting for individuals whose religious and cultural background they don't know is, if you do know which holiday they celebrate, then naturally you make the greeting specific for that!! And, the nice thing about the Internet is you're never addressing individuals anyway, so...why not make it a Merry Christmas thread, eh?

it's something i've come to accept, my inherent inequality. no matter what i say, someone will always come back and say, "yes, but i'm straight with the Lord, and with my sexuality. so it counts more." and what am i to do but plead sin and go self-flagellate?"

clearly, if the love of Christ were in my heart, i'd be all about pussy.

I'll buy you a new sarcasm detector for Kwanzaa, or Boxing Day, or whatever it is you celebrate.

Though my post may be ironic, considering your post may be sarcastic as well. A smiley or two would help.
