    The H.I. area may be the place for this, maybe not. You may have seen it already but I just saw it. As poetry it's not that great but the message is loud and clear.Thought I would share. ...W

    Merry Christmas
    Twas, the months before Christmas. When all through
    our land
    Not a Christian was praying nor taking a stand.
    See, the Politically Correct Police had taken away,
    The reason for Christmas - no one could say
    The children were told by their schools not to sing
    About Shepherds and Wise Men and Angels and things
    It might hurt people's feelings, the teachers would say
    December 25th is just a "Holiday"
    Yet the shoppers were ready with cash, checks and
    credit
    Pushing folks down to the floor just to get it
    CDs from Madonna, X BOX and I-pods
    Something was changing, something quite odd
    Retailers promoted Ramadan and Kwanzaa
    In hopes to sell books by Franken & Fonda
    As Target was hanging their trees upside down
    At Lowe's the word Christmas - was not to be found
    At K Mart and Staples at Penny's and Sears
    You won't hear the word Christmas; it won't touch your
    ears
    Inclusive, sensitive, Di-ver-si-ty
    Are words that were used to intimidate me
    Now Daschle, Now Darden, Now Sharpton, Wolf
    Blitzen
    On Boxer, On Rather, on Kerry, on Clinton
    To the top of the Senate, they rose such a clatter
    To eliminate Jesus, in all public matters
    And we spoke not a word, as they, slapped our faith
    Forbidden to speak of salvation and grace
    The true Gift of Christmas was exchanged and discarded
    The reason for the season, stopped before started
    So as you celebrate "Winter Break" under your "Dream Tree"
    Sipping your Starbucks, listen to me
    Choose your words carefully, choose what you say
    Shout!
    MERRY CHRISTMAS, not Happy Holiday!
