Really? Where?

I don't remember seeing any radical Socialists getting elected last month.

Huh?

Re: Season Greetings
Yeah, having good manners IS a bunch of crapola.

No, its not.

Having good manners would have been thanking someone for wishing you a Merry Christmas, not bitching about it because you're not Christian.

Don't they realize that the United States of America is a CHRISTIAN NATION?

You mean: the United States of America is a predominantly Christian nation.

Radical Socialist = left-wing nutjob.

Or, where are the radical left-wing nutjobs you referred to?

Is it good manners to assume everybody is the same religion as you are?

No, it's a CHRISTIAN NATION.

It was founded on the Bible.

Everybody knows that.

Re: Season Greetings
So having "Good manners" is all about putting up with other people's bullshit religions and holidays with a smiling happy face? Screw that! Now go have a happy winter solstice, because Christ wasn't born in the winter (if he even existed).

Christmas crap
A AMWAY sales lady gets in an elevator and just before the elevator reaches her floor she lets out a rip-roaring paint peeling fart.

Embarrassed now because she knows when the door opens she will be blamed since she is the only one in the elevator. She reaches in her AMWAY bag and sprays some pine scented air freshner.

The elevator opens and a big burly biker steps in and say wow...whats that smell?
The lady proud of her AMWAY product says "what do you think it smells like?
The biker says "Smells like someone took a shit on a Christmas tree." :D

Oh, you misread me, I meant:

left-wing = nutjob

I wasn't really refering to the most extreme leftists.

where are the radical left-wing nutjobs you referred to?

Nope. I don't think wishing someone a Merry Christmas makes that assumption.

You don't have to be christian to celebrate christmas, and most people do celebrate christmas, whether they are christian or not, so to not say Merry Christmas becuase of a small percentage of the population might get offended is retarded. Especially, when 99% of the people you say that to, will be celebrating christmas anyways.

Its lame to forbid the greeters at walmart from saying Merry Christmas, don't you think?

No, its good manners to NOT BITCH ABOUT IT, you don't have to smile.

Now go have a happy winter solstice

Thanks, I will.

Re: Season Greetings
Actually, really good manners is to try and not to force you views on strangers. Your view is that, since Christians are the majority in this country, that we non-christians should just suck it up and put on a happy (non-bitching) face. So you just don't care about people who aren't Christians, they can just shutup about it already as far as you are concerned. You do know that the Christian religion isn't the largest organized religion on the planet?

You mean like forcing the view that greeters shouldn't say Merry Christmas, if you are saying that is bad manners then I agree.

Wishing someone a Merry Christmas isn't forcing your views on them. Conversly, demanding that people don't use the phrase 'Merry Christmas' IS forcing your views on people.

Re: Season Greetings

To my mind, this whole "issue" of the "war" on christmas is just another right wing christian ploy to force their religion onto other people.

They not only want to force people to be greeted with a christian greeting, they want to force workers - whether they are christian or NOT to MAKE the greeting. By guilt and oppression.

The campaign against wallmart shows the venality of this position: there are MUCH better reasons to boycott and protest wallmart, yet they skip over those issue to push an agenda instead.

Real manners would involve determining FIRST if the person were christian or not before offering a christian greeting.

But maybe I come from an older generation that is out of touch when I feel it was just good manners not to wear your religion (or politics) all over your clothes.

Religion is between you and your god eh?

Enjoy.

I'm not Christian, and people wish me a Merry Christmas all the time? H

How many people actually celebrate the holiday in its traditional sense anyhow? To most people, I'd say, it's just Jingle Bells and pine trees. Fat dude with presents, cookies, etc.

So, why be so uptight about the whole Christmas thing? If someone wished you a happy Fourth of July, would you be offended if you were a visiting Canadian?

Nevertheless, I still refrain from wishing people Merry Christmas, 'cause of the few crazy people out there who are insane.

Oh... and I thought this thread was supposed to be PHUNNY!

A: Five. One to handle the light bulb, four to rebuke the spirit of darkness.
