rush limbaugh has officially went over the edge. anyone who listens to this asshole and thinks it makes sense is as crazy as he is. on his show limbaugh tied john kerry and the democratic party to the "war" on xmas. first, isnt calling this a war on xmas an insult to our soldiers fighting a real (if misguided) war in iraq. it even pales to the mythical war on drugs. apparently nobody should talk about our government or the war during december because its xmas time. limbaugh said "john kerry is a member of the political party thats trying to get xmas, you know, out of the public consciousness. theres a movement against public displays of xmas. xmas trees gotta go. nativity scenes gotta go. its a bunch of liberals, and most of them are democrats. thery're the ones trying to stamp xmas out. a bunch of secularists and atheists and so forth. what bugs them about it? i'll give you one word: g-o-d". limbaugh is as crazy as they get. i cant believe he didnt blame clinton. hes a shill for the republican party. the funniest part of all of this is that the christians that are up in arms about xmas dont even know where it comes from. xmas was a pagan ritual that was supposed to happen arond the shortest day of the year. they believed that the worst of winter was over and the days would now start getting longer....etc. the christians, after having no luck getting them to stop their pagan rituals, co-opted the holiday and threw christ into it. the xmas tree was used in these rites because it was seen as the hardiest of plants.....get it.....evergreen. it didnt die in the harsh winters and so it was used in the pagan celebration. so as you bemoan the lack of christ in xmas remember your celebrating a pagan holiday.
sorry i didnt post yesterday but my computer had a meltdown. i believe that the republican party in general and george bush in particular had alot to do with that.
