It's a Naked Christmas Tree Thing

Dear America,

miss me?
yeah, no, not really. got it.

that's cool.
just in case you wanna know, I have been busy.

Knee deep in reading this week -- just a little gift to self that keeps on giving [to myself]; and at the top of the book pile with top priority is..............The Naked Communist.  Oh MY Goodness.  Winner winner chicken dinner.  Un&%#*ingbelievable.  What a good book.  It is so good, I am taking my time with it.

So between the reading and the recently added part time work that has become a full time job -- my energies have been twisted at best, and totally shot at worst.  But enough about me.

I just had to jump in to chat it up a wee bit today.   And no, not to talk about my little sugar Cain; not to talk about Gloria 'pumped up kicks' Allred...of course, that little nickname of hers should make you wonder; and no, not even to talk about the hypocrisy of realities that surely lives and breathes within the Left aorta of the heart of society.

No, I am gonna lock into one thing and one thing only -- and as it would turn out, it has nothing to do with anything related to the Herman Cain scandal.

No.  I am here today to mention the Christian tax -- all wrapped up and tied with a bow at The Heritage Foundation.  [yeah, they didn't refer to it as a "Christian Tax" -- but I will]


I know.  What's the big &%$*ing deal, right Joe...as in Biden....because that's just the way we roll around here.... it's just fifteen cents.  

But think about it.

The Left continuously picks and chooses when they enter the 'separation of church and state' zone and when they don't (of course, the idea itself -- of this so-called "separation" -- is a whole 'nother controversy...which WE have not enough time for today).

But the whole thing is odd, really.

The Administration has decided it needs yet another department to elevate the image of the Christmas tree, of all things.  Which makes me wonder, why now?   which is funny, considering that it seems to be a common refrain around here these days (indeed, and it does sound like we are gonna circle around back to Cain, but no, not really).

But anyway, here's some details, handpicked from the post written by David S. Addington, from Heritage:

"In the Federal Register of November 8, 2011, Acting Administrator of Agricultural Marketing David R. Shipman announced that the Secretary of Agriculture will appoint a Christmas Tree Promotion Board.  The purpose of the Board is to run a “program of promotion, research, evaluation, and information designed to strengthen the Christmas tree industry’s position in the marketplace; maintain and expend existing markets for Christmas trees; and to carry out programs, plans, and projects designed to provide maximum benefits to the Christmas tree industry” (7 CFR 1214.46(n)).  And the program of “information” is to include efforts to “enhance the image of Christmas trees and the Christmas tree industry in the United States” (7 CFR 1214.10)."


ex squeeze me?

....in the era of let's take God out of everywhere -- and often -- especially that crazy Christian one, this administration targets Christians, in the particular, charging fifteen cents a pop to "enhance the  image of Christmas trees?"  under the guise of "helping" the Christmas tree industry, you think charging more for them is going to be a benefit?  in a recession?  (yes, the recession...still)  but seriously?

AND you want a bunch of left wing, secular bureaucrats to run the program?

hold up while I get a good belly laugh on the floor...morphing, of course, into an even bigger, better cry (aka fully enhanced)..

Way to ring in the Christmas season, Mr. President.

And pulleeze -- don't even try to give me the cultural Christmas excuses -- Christmas, all of it, including but not limited to all of it's symbols, especially the Christmas Tree -- is celebrating the birth of Jesus.  Do Jewish people get a tree?  do Hindus get a tree?  do Muslims get a tree?  NO  NO  and hat trick NO.

Sure, these days, it is hard to tell; but maybe that is the problem (and we'll save that for another day).

Given my mood -- being totally unnerved and unsettled by this little book highlighting the true color of red defining Communism -- perhaps this news is just poorly timed according to my own little world. 

But is it just me?

and call me funny -- but wasn't the president, just last week, mocking Congress (and God) all in the same breath, when he was trying to push his latest jobs bill?  When he thought congressional actions to be incredulous, spending essential time to "re-affirm" our motto, "In God We Trust" ...like, what a waste of time that was....stupid congress...and like, how is just trusting in God gonna help us make jobs...

So lets talk about waste then:   On a day, of all days, when you announce cutting back on government "swag" all the way around the evergreen branches --  tell me -- just how many bureaucrats will it take to "enhance" an image that clearly doesn't need this kind of help?  what will that really cost us, the taxpayer, when all things are said, and done, and promoted, by a government gaggle of unbelievers?   Is this part of that thing Michelle was referring to --  in re-defining our traditions and whatnot?

sounds like we are beginning to 'change our history' -- beginning with re-defining the Christmas Tree for us; playing with the altering of it's image, perhaps.... it's meaning... and overall, transforming and ENHANCING our traditions...because I'm with the government and I'm here to help.

from the little red book, The Naked Communist:

"...But in rejecting the Judaic-Christian code of morals, Engels tried to represent that Communism was merely moving up to a higher level where human conduct will be motivated exclusively by the needs of society: 'We say that our morality is wholly subordinated to the interest of the class-struggle of the proletariat.'"
Right, because people, by themselves and left to their own devices, are just      that      good.

Utopia here we come.  Can't wait.  Perhaps somebody could produce a secular Advent calendar to mark the days...hey, if you have the means, go for it, no need to thank me or give me a penny.

And make a mental note, if you will:  secular, faux-fir Christmas trees are not only the next big thing -- they are the only thing.  You heard it from me, little G, here first.   Jesus is not the reason for the season, got it? genericbegeesus dot gov IS, starting tomorrow....because, you know, "...[Marx and Engels believed that] Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the sentiment of a heartless world, as it is the spirit of spiritless conditions.  It is the opium of the people."

and now, it's time for me to curl up with The Good Book (the real one); then, get right back at The Naked Communist cuz it's getting hot up here in America.

Make it a Good Day, G

my apologies, drank the eggnog just before dropping in...

but just one more thing before I go:

....had no idea that Karl Marx was such a fruitcake...
but this, along with all the other things aforementioned, we will save for another day.
