Season's Greetings

Not original, but somewhat amusing...
To All My Democrat Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, 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 2009, 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 Republican Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Thanks to James for the email.

Someone forgot to tell the Dims make sure and temper their joy and celebration with the remembrance of starvation and plague in the world, and knowledge of all the atrocities the US has committed domestically and abroad, and thus without an over-developed sense of national pride or jingoism. Just like we do with Thanksgiving :)

Merry Christmas scoundrel, and to your good lady as well! :)
