    A Merry Christmas - Stocking Stuffers

    December 1 - the first day of the last month of the year. From now until December 24 each post will have something to do about Christmas. That's right - you heard me - CHRISTMAS. By definition, Christmas (literally, the Mass of Christ) is a holiday in the Christian calendar, usually observed on December 25, which celebrates the birth of Jesus. (Thanks Wikipedia). I call it what it is at this blog - if Christmas offends you then you must know I really don't care. Christmas was around longer than you were and is well noted on most all calendars - except the liberal calendar, where December 25th is simply labeled as Holiday Day I suppose.

    But in keeping with the commercialization of the season I do wish to show my Christian love by pointing out some gifts you can get over at the AFL/CIO union online store. The gifts I'll mention here are great stocking stuffers for the little tykes too. Oh - you won't find the word Christmas there, just so you won't be shocked. Unions are the backbone of socialism, and socialists hate Christianity. Check any one of the many socialists websites for yourself.

    Take for example the pin called Immigration you can get for just $1.00. The slogan is No Human Being Is Illegal. It will be a hit with all the teachers at your kid's public school!

    How about an all union-made First Aid kit - great for big stockings and really handy for some of those more innovative non-violent strikes!

    Or give your neighbors a gift to remember you by - the PBS documentary "Is Wal-Mart Good for America?" DVD for just $24.00 (although it only cost less than 75 cents to make - gotta pay all those union perks). Believe me, your neighbors will remember you!

    A great stocking stuffer is from the online store of the Steel Workers union. A polished - excuse me, HIGHLY polished gold (not solid) - 1" money clip for just $6.15! Now if you were one of thousands of steel workers that lost their jobs because the USA lost the steel business to overseas firms due to excessive union demands on the steel companies then you probably don't need this. (BTW, shipping for this $6.15 item is $7.95 - yeah, the shippers are unionized too).

    So there - can we please stop with the rumors that I don't promote unions? And remember if you, the little worker, won't buy from the union store who will? The union bosses? They're too smart - that's why they are the boss and you are the one pay'n those dues!
