3. Christmas? This time of year we hear about the war on Christmas. I don't care if you wish me 'Happy Holidays' or you say a hearty 'Merry Christmas!' Whatevs. I DO resent having to remove every Christian Christmas symbol from city, state and federal property in this great land. The first amendment to the U.S. Constitution talks about not establishing a state religion. I don't think not establishing a state religion means we have to remove every last remnant of our Judeo/Christian culture at Christmas time. I believe the U.S. is a Judeo/Christian country and our body of laws flows out of that particular cultural and religious mindset. Last time I checked, the Senate of the United States has a Chaplain who prays every day before the esteemed body conducts business. If the Senate can have a chaplain, can we keep the creche at city hall?
4. Dogs?? China now has a new law. Only one dog per family, please! Makes me glad I live in the wilds of West Texas. Don't want anybody limiting my number of kids, dogs and horses and other things.
5. Wiener Dogs? I was astounded when I read this article about dachsunds being one of the most aggressive breeds of dogs. Is nothing sacred? Stubby-legged sausage dogs are the new pit-bull? Protect your toes and ankles! Run for them thar hills, people!!
