The "War" On Christmas

Lately it seems a whole bunch of Christians feel like the world is against them, and never more so than in the past couple of weeks when several religious groups (and Fox News, or is that being redundant?) have been screaming from the steeple tops that Christmas is under attack by the heathens and must be protected at all costs.

Personally, I can't think of a greater non-issue -- especially with all the genuine issues out there that people should be worried about.

But... if you happen to be one of these folks who honestly think that Christmas is at risk, then please take a few minutes to:

Watch this (amusing)


This (hilarious)

and then

Read this (straight to the point)

Thank you for your time. Oh, and Happy Holidays!

Es Un Problema

So you're in school, but out in the hallway. Someone asks if it is ok if they can borrow a dollar off of you. You answer "No problem."

No problem, right?

Well, it is if you said it in Spanish.

Doesn't Kansas have bigger issues to tackle? For instance whether or not they should teach science in science class? First they want to be labled a bunch of fundies who can't handle evolution. Now they want to be labled a bunch of racist fundies who can't handle evolution.

What next? Vegan racist fundies who can't handle evolution?

Seems Like Only Yesterday

1546: Number of days since President Bush promised to find Osama Bin Laden "dead or alive."

How many days has it been since you've heard Bush even mention Bin Laden? You hear him talk about 9/11 in nearly ever speech he gives, but never talks about the guy behind it or the search for him.

Odd, don't you think?

Rules Of Engagement

This sign appears outside of some showers somewhere in Iraq. Nice to know the line clearly has been drawn in the sand, or at least in the shower stalls.

Oh, and if that sign isn't enough to keep a grunt's hands off him or herself, and they happen to be Christian, help is available. My favorite "tool" for overcoming the self-gratification urge:

I. Be accountable to another Christian brother. Call a Christian friend with whom you can fellowship during this time of temptation.

Exactly how would that go?

Yes, hello, Dave? Ummm... I was just in the shower when... well, ... ummm,.... I started to feel,... errr,... Praise the Lord! [click]

We Will, We Will Rap You

Prepared to be horrified, amused, or intrigued:

Q-Unit: Queen mixed with 50 Cent

Yep. I almost choked on my cookie, too.

You Can't Bank On It

Ok, I know I've been letting this site down lately, but other things in life have taken up whatever time I had to devote to this. I'm going to try and get back into the blogging swing of things, but bear with me. My free time isn't nearly as much as it used to be.

That said, something that is taking up precious moments of my life lately is the inordinate amount of bogus emails I get everyday. None worse than the fake Paypal and Bank of America emails asking me to verify my account info. Luckily a closer look at those emails show typos and poor graphics that give them away as something not likely sent by any real business.

As much as I'm ticked off at the scum who send me those emails, I'm just as ticked off at Paypal, and especially my bank, Bank of America, for not alerting their customers to these new emails. How long would it take to send out a warning about this through email or the post? Not long at all, but in the meantime, some of their less savvy clients are no doubt falling victim to the scammers. Bad, bad Paypal and Bank of America. While I don't expect the ruler of Nigeria to help me with some guidance through the crapload of emails I get from his people, I wouldn't mind B of A letting me know that they know about the scam and are on it.

And oh, I don't have their permisson to use that logo at the top of this article, but since they don't seem to be too troubled by the scamming emails, I'm sure my little site isn't going to get their panties in a twist, either.
