Please accept with no obligation, implies or implicit, 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 tradition of the religious persuasion of your choice, or
secular practice of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular
persuasions and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice
religion or secular traditions at all.



And a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling, and medically uncomplicated
recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2005, but not
without due respect of the calendars of choice of other cultures whose
contribution to society have helped make America great, ( not to imply that
America is necessarily greater then any other country or is the only "AMERICA"
in the western hemisphere), and without regard to race, creed, color, age,
physical ability, religious faith, choice of computer platform, or sexual
preference of the wishee.



(By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is
subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no
alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wishee to
actually implement any of the wishes for himself or others, and is void where
prohibited by law, and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This
wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good
tiding for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday
greeting, whichever come first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this
wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher.)



Best wishes for a Happy Holiday

I'm going to start being hard nosed about this PC crap.

I just received a card from my insurance agent saying "Happy Holiday Season". I put a note inside the card stating "Please don't offend me with your trivializing of a holiday that I've enjoyed all of my life which is "Christmas". If you don't want to send out Christmas cards thats fine with me, but don't send me any more politically correct cards - I find that insulting". I then slipped the card back in the envelope and taped it shut, and re-addressed the card to my insurance agent and put a stamp on it. I'm a getting ready right now to put it in my mailbox.

I might be an old grump, but I'm getting sick and tired of all of this PC crap.

I am getting the same way and I am not religious.

It is way out of hand but I think it is going to swing back now. People are fed up with this foolishness.

Custer,

I think it is condescending and patronizing to send someone a generic card concerning a event that the receiver may consider special. I have a brother in law that is Jewish. When my wife and I send him a card, we send one that says Happy Hanukkah.

And, I do find it insulting that a minority of the people in the US can change traditions of everyone because they say they are offended. Well, I'm going to start letting everyone know when they offend me.

I tend to root for the underdog. Amazingly, the majority of the people in this country are the underdog these days.

This is how idiotic it is. A few years ago people grumbled. Now they are fighting back at this stupidity.

Texas School District
Bans Christmas Colors
( MCNS) -- Attorneys filed a federal civil rights lawsuit today against the Plano Independent School District for a discriminatory policy that censors the Christmas religious expression of students and their parents.

?The policy is a perfect example of politically correct extremism,? said Alliance Defense Fund Senior Counsel Gary McCaleb.

?School officials have gone so far as to prohibit students from wearing red and green at their ?winter break? parties because they claim they are Christmas colors. Even the plates and napkins must be white. The district?s policy is ludicrous to even the most common observer.?

In addition to banning Christmas colors, school officials have reportedly prohibited students from exchanging candy canes and pencils with religious messages on them, using reindeer symbols, or writing ?Merry Christmas? on greeting cards to U.S. soldiers because the phrase might ?offend someone.? The district has even applied its policy to parents involved in school activities, barring them from exchanging ?religious? Christmas items with other parents.

?The district?s policy is what is offensive. It is offensive to the 96 percent of Americans who celebrate Christmas,? McCaleb said. ?If the district truly wants to avoid offending someone, then they will change their incredibly restrictive and unconstitutional policy.?

The lawsuit, Jonathan Morgan, et al., v. the Plano Independent School District, et al., was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Sherman Division.

?The U.S. Supreme Court has never ruled that public schools must prohibit the distribution of candy canes or Christmas cards. They have never ruled that you can?t say ?Merry Christmas? in the public schools,? McCaleb explained. ?These attempts to stifle all religious expression and sanitize Christmas of all religious content are tiring to the overwhelming majority of Texans and all Americans.?
