'Tis The Season To Be Angry

Yes there's always a bit of nutpicking involved with "The War On The Fake War On Christmas," but for years it has been spearheaded by one of our major cable news networks, and has now been embraced by the current presidential frontrunner of one of our two major political parties, so it's worth commenting on.
Washington (CNN)Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on the day's controversy on Monday, floating the prospect of boycotting Starbucks after the coffee giant announced it would abandon its Christmas-themed cups.

"I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don't know. Seriously, I don't care. That's the end of that lease, but who cares?" Trump told a crowd in Springfield, Illinois, on Monday. "If I become president, we're all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you."

Well, ya, I'm glad the Donald's going to enforce the Christmas Holiday Speech Codes. America hasn't been great since they were abolished. This will be my last "Happy Holidays" for you before Rudolph comes and ships me off to the North Pole for some re-education. Don't tell anyone that the guy who wrote his song was Jewish.

Praise be to Christ. Amen.
