Call for cessation of secession
The Americans that are petitioning the government to succeed from the Union are like the spoiled child that when corrected, throws a fit, falls down on the floor kicking and screaming, and when their fit doesn’t work, they threaten to run away from home.
However, these people aren’t children and are responsible for their actions and threats.
The reaction of the sane loyal majority makes me proud to be an American. In many other countries these secessionists would be arrested for treason or murdered by the mob. It is ironic that the people who would destroy the Union are the ones who enjoy the greater share of the protection and liberty it guarantees.
I hope these people are called out for their arrogant stupidity by the vast loyal majority of Americans.

A war on Christmas
Get ready folks, you are not going to believe these current headlines, or sadly enough maybe you will!
• The 2012 White House “Holiday” card spotlights the Obama’s family Portuguese water dog — instead of Christmas. A lot of thought must have into this non Christmas card.
• The University of California in Berkeley is considering a student government resolution calling for Salvation Army bell ringers to be banned from campus over allegations the charity is “anti-gay.”
• The owner of a New Jersey business is facing thousands of dollars in possible fines after he refused to remove a 40-foot tall inflatable Santa Claus from his rooftop.
Residents of a senior adult apartment complex in California staged a protest after the management of their building announced a ban on Christmas trees and menorahs in communal areas.
• A British primary school has created a yuletide uproar after telling parents they would no longer be able to donate homemade treats to the annual Christmas fair unless they had government certification.
The best, or shall I say the worst, is the fact that not even Charlie Brown is safe from persecution.
