    Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays to everyone!

    "In this blessed season, let not blind passion darken our counsels. We shall not solve a moral question by dodging it. We can scarcely hope to have a full Christmas if we turn a deaf ear to the suffering of even the least of Christ's little ones."

    ~Harry S. Truman

    A. There is no Biblical or canonical direction to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

    II. Jesus was born in October.

    3. If the head tax was eliminated, Jesus wouldna been born in the barn.

    D. Oreilly and Fox news is just an excuse to harrass women.

    Cinq.  Happy Saturnalia, ya filthy animal.

      There is no evidence of when Jesus was born though the scrriptual tale makes October a fair guess.

      Jesus was probably born in Nazareth.  There was no census requiring people to travel to their birth place.  Roman kept excellent records and there was no such census .

      The Bethlehem story was made up to make Jesus look like the family of David, thus conforming to Jewish prophecy.

      A head tax, when collected, was paid where you lived.  Nobody had to travel to pay such a tax.

      Trump Stinks!

      Happy Holidays.

    Happy Holidays … and to get you in the spirit, here is the teaser for Randy Rainbow's Christmas album, Hey Gurl It's Christmas

     And as a reminder, Rainbow has a take on impeachment.

    Have yourself a merry little humbug . . .

    Christmas won the war against pagan traditions centuries  ago, by appropriating and absorbing them….Christmas isn’t Christian. 

    Whatever your ethnic roots or religious traditions, enjoy spending some time with family, relaxing, and being a little less selfish for a few days at the end of the year.

    Christmas for some, Festivus for the rest of us!

    Former Sec State Natalie Meyers missing, “endangered”, per CBS4 News

    Giuliani is more jewish than Soros.
    I don't know how that gets quantified, but maybe Kirk notanazi Widlund is more jewish than Giuliani.

    I don't bother with ethnic/racial/religious/gender/income and the other isms that I am aware of  (Mostly. People who prefer the designated hitter are just inferior intellects and should not be allowed to further modify the art form that is baseball, Ray.).  Maybe Kirk notanazi will explain somewhere sometime. Maybe.




  10. Diogenesdemar says:

    When Olivia Nuzzi, the author of the piece, told Giuliani he sounded crazy, he "insisted he wasn't," Nuzzi reported.

    Uh huh . . .

    Colorado Springs Robbing Hood… .Robbed the bank, threw all the money up in the air, yelling, “Merry Christmas”, then went for coffee.  At least he was white, so they didn’t shoot him while he sipped coffee afterwards at the Starbucks.

    What is wrong with this picture?

    Fracking boom tied to methane spike in Earth’s atmosphere

    Scientists have measured big increases in the amount of methane, the powerful global warming gas, entering the atmosphere over the last decade. Cows or wetlands have been fingered as possible sources, but new research points to methane emissions from fossil fuel production—mainly from shale gas operations in the United States and Canada—as the culprit.

    The “massive” increase in methane emissions occurred at the same time as the use of fracking for shale gas took off in the U.S., says Robert Howarth, an ecologist at Cornell University and author of the study published Aug 14 in the journal Biogeosciences.

    “We know the increase is largely due to fossil fuel production and this research suggests over half is from shale gas operations,” Howarth says in an interview.

    • Duke CoxDuke Cox says:

      Professor Howarth was one of the very first to research and publish cradle to grave data on natural gas pollution. His groundbreaking research showed that natural gas is only cleaner when burned…not in its totality. The extraction and distribution process more than makes up for the emissions saved during combustion.

      Efforts by the American Petroleum Institute to mislead notwithstanding, natural gas IS NOT, NEVER HAS BEEN, and NEVER WILL BE a clean fuel. Period.
