A recommended post on holiday political correctness.

I really enjoyed this piece by Lou Dobbs, parts of it are here but there is more at the link:

This mindless movement of political correctness at all costs is one of the most un-American and crazy twists in our culture as anything we've witnessed. Remember, we're Americans, and we have freedom of speech, that whole life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness thing. Or at least we did.

And I hope you'll celebrate the Christmas season by offending someone. If you're Jewish, how about a hearty "Happy Hanukkah" to a good Christian? If they're offended you've revealed a fool, not such a good Christian and someone you shouldn't waste your expression of good will upon. But get ready for a few robust "Merry Christmas" calls to be thrown your way as well.

My chest is completely filled with air as well as pride, Dobbs hit it right out of the park. I agree with him 100% - I read the entire article from top to bottom but of course the last line just after his article reads...

The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of the writer.

Which you and I know is one of the those lets make sure we don't aquire a lawsuit because of this article.

I posted this same thing on my blog!!! I absolutely agree w/ Mr. Dobbs. I'm so tired of the whole "politically correct" Christmas nonesense. :)

And with that...a Merry Christmas to all. :)

I tried to comment on your blog Traci but I guess beta blogger doesn't like me right now -

I'll try again later but MERRY CHRISTMAS to you too!

Damn beta blogger.

If you aren't signed up for the beta, you have to comment as Anonymous. At least that's what I had to do on a friend's beta blogger before I made the switch (to the dark side!).

Merry Christmas to you too! :)

That's all well and good, for now.
I can't help but wonder what American Christians will say when Islam becomes the religion of choice of the majority of American citizens.

Then I guess we'll have to adapt, which would mean we wouldn't have to worry about Christmas shopping anymore.

I'm still having trouble getting over the concept of political correctness.

I don't believe that I qualify as one who practices it ;-)

Lou should get a national award for that piece!
