Cautiously, Milo worked himself around in a half circle so that he could face Yossarian. He unwrapped tissue paper from something soft, round and brown and handed it out to Yossarian.
“Please taste this and let me know what you think. I’d like to serve it to the men.”
“What is it?” asked Yossarian, and took a big bite.
“Chocolate covered cotton.” lihj
Yossarian gagged convulsively and sprayed his big mouthful of chocolate-covered cotton right out into Milo’s face. “Here, take it back!” he spouted angrily. “Jesus Christ! Have you gone crazy? You didn’t even take the goddamn seeds out.”
“Give it a chance, will you?” Milo begged. “It can’t be that bad. Is it really that bad?”
“It’s even worse.”
“But I’ve got to make the mess halls feed it to the men.”
“They’ll never be able to swallow it.”
“They’ve got to swallow it,” Milo ordained with dictatorial grandeur, and almost broke his neck when he let go with one arm to wave a righteous finger in the air…
“It is my fault that I saw this great opportunity to corner the market on Egyptian cotton and got us into all this trouble? Was I supposed to know there was a glut? I didn’t even know what a glut was in those days. An opportunity to corner the market doesn’t come along very often, and I was pretty shrewd to grab the chance when I had it.”
Milo gulped back a moan as he saw six uniformed pallbearers lift the plain white coffin from the ambulance and set it gently down on the ground beside the yawning gash of the freshly dug grave. “And now I can’t get rid of a single penny’s worth,” he mourned.

WARNING!! History lesson alert!!!

Oddly enough, Christmas was outlawed in many Christian countries for many years.

In the early years of Christianity, Easter was the main holiday; the birth of Jesus was not celebrated. In the fourth century, church officials decided to institute the birth of Jesus as a holiday.

The Bible does not mention date for Jesus’ birth (Puritans later pointed this out in an effort to deny the legitimacy of the celebration).

While some evidence suggests that his birth may have occurred in the spring (shepherds do not normally herd sheep in mid-winter), Pope Julius I chose December 25. Many believe that this date was chosen in an effort to absorb the traditions of the pagan Saturnalia festival.

By the Middle Ages, Christianity had mostly replaced pagan religion, but the traditions of the Saturnalia continued. On Christmas, believers attended church, then celebrated raucously in a drunken, carnival-like atmosphere similar to today’s Mardi Gras.

Around 1600, a wave of religious reform changed the way Christmas was celebrated. When Oliver Cromwell and the Puritans took power in England in 1645, one of their goals was to rid England of decadence. One of their reforms was the cancellation of Christmas.

Eventually, Charles II was restored to the throne and, with him, came the return of the popular holiday.

The pilgrims that came to America in 1620 were even more orthodox in their Puritan beliefs than Cromwell. In early America, Christmas was not a holiday. Between 1659 and 1681, the celebration of Christmas was actually outlawed in Boston. Exhibiting the Christmas spirit was punishable by a fine of five shillings.

After the American Revolution, many English customs fell out of favor, including Christmas. Congress was actually in session on December 25, 1789, the first Christmas under America’s new constitution.

It wasn’t until 1870 that Christmas was declared a national holiday.

Christmas as we now see it was the invention of Washington Irving. In 1819, Irving wrote “The Sketchbook of Geoffrey Crayon, gent.” This was a series of fictional stories about Christmas in an English manor house. The stories feature a squire who invited the peasants into his home for the holiday. In the stories, unlike in real life, the two groups mingled effortlessly.

In reality, the early 19th century was a period of class conflict and turmoil with high unemployment and rioting by the poor, especially during the Christmas season.

For those that consider Christmas to be a purely Christian holiday, I would recommend that they look at the Christmas celebrations in Hong Kong and Singapore. Those two countries seem to have discovered the true spirit of Christmas as we celebrate it today. (The commercial spirit.)

There is nothing like walking down Orchard Road in Singapore, where the temperature and humidity are both hovering around 95, and seeing an elderly Chinese fellow dancing around in a full Santa suit (complete with fur trim and long, white beard) trying to attract customers into the shopping malls.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The Naughty And Nice List – Which Companies are Allowing a “Merry Christmas”

ORALANDO, FL, November 27, 2006 – As part of the Friend or Foe Christmas Campaign, Liberty Counsel has created a “Naughty and Nice” checklist which catalogs retailers who either censor or recognize Christmas. The list was compiled from information gathered by Liberty Counsel supporters.

Partial “Naughty List”

Lowe’s – Employees cannot say “Merry Christmas” to customers. Lowe’s corporate advised that only when customers initiate a “Merry Christmas” greeting can employees respond in kind.
Toys ‘R’ Us – “Holidays” are in, “Merry Christmas” is out.
Banana Republic – Web site has “Holiday Gift Guide” with no mention of Christmas.
Bed Bath & Beyond – No mention of any holidays.
Barnes & Noble – Web site says “Gift Guide,” “Holiday gift baskets,” “Holiday sled,” “Holiday delivery,” but no Christmas. Stores not allowed to put up Christmas trees, and employees are not allowed to say “Merry Christmas.”
Best Buy – Web site says “Unique gifts for the season,” “Holiday gift ideas.” Spokesperson said the use of “MerryChristmas” is disrespectful.
Dick’s Sporting Goods – Web site says “gifts” and has images, but no mention of Christmas.
Eddie Bauer – Customer service would not recognize Christmas, they “don’t want to offend Jews, those who celebrate Kwanza and those who have no religious preference.”
Gap – “Holiday Survival Guide” with no mention of Christmas.
Home Depot – Web site says “Holiday Store” and “Holiday Lighting” and only at bottom of site says “Make your Christmas decorations complete.” Stores have “Holiday Home Accents.”
K-Mart – Selling “Holiday trees” and “Holiday wreaths.”

Partial “Nice List”

Dillard’s – Advertises “Christmas Catalog.”
JC Penney – Web site has “Christmas Shipping Countdown.”
Joann Fabrics – Offers Christmas and Holiday fabrics.
Kohl’s – Christmas is all over TV, print and radio ads.
L.L. Bean – Advertises and distributes “Christmas Catalog.”
Linens ‘N Things – Has a “Christmas Shop” and “Christmas Checklist.”
Macy’s – “Merry Christmas!” on its home page.
Michaels – Web site has a Christmas
M&M-Mars Candies – Will have red and green candies with pictures of Christmas trees and angels among other images.
Target – Web site says “Christmas Decor,” although the physical store has “Holiday entertaining.” TV ad says “Merry Christmass.”
Wal-Mart – Has a “Christmas Shop,” plays Christmas carols, and employees can say “Merry Christmas.”

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, commented: “Every consumer should make a list and check it twice, stop patronizing retailers which are naughty and shop at those which are nice. Retailers which seek to profit from Christmas while pretending it does not exist should realize they have offended the vast majority of Americans who enjoy Christmas. Customers have a choice and they will not patronize corporate Scrooges.”

Perhaps those Puritans had more sense than we give them credit for. Where is Oliver Cromwell when we need him?

It really is getting pretty silly when we start comparing how different companies manage to corrupt our holiday spirit with crass commercialism, and only cooperate with the ones that use our religion to get us to spend more money.

Somehow, I managed to miss the verses that said how Jesus wanted me to have a new plasma television set. When did we end up with the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John and Macy’s?

And why does this whole argument sound so much like a Monty Python routine?

31. Richard Pope spews:

I would like to know what the general practice is in this subdivision regarding other methods of expression.

For example, are residents allowed to put political yard signs in their lawns?

Are residents allowed to fly the United States flags? What about other types of flags?

Can residents have religious displays? What about an ordinary wreath on the outside of the home? So-called “Christmas” lights, actually just plain colored light strings in reality? Can you put Santa and reindeer in your front yard? How about Jesus, Mary and Joseph? Or a religious display of a Jewish or Islamic nature?

A peace “Christmas” wreath has both a religious and political expression. If they prohibit this wreath, but allow others, it is both religious and political discrimination. Religious discrimination is probably against state law in Colorado, and I think federal fair housing laws too.

Political discrimination is probably not against the law in Colorado (although some states and localities do have laws to this effect). On the other hand, a homeowner’s association does have some of the attributes of a government, and there may be constitutional limitations on what they can do. It is probably okay for them to prohibit various forms of political expression on a viewpoint neutral basis (i.e. no political yard signs whatsoever), but discriminating against wreaths on the basis of political content could be a problem.

I wonder about the local “political” situation in the homeowner’s association. Usually, the association president is not some sort of dictator, but merely the presiding officer of the board of directors (and serving at the pleasure of the majority of the board). Most actions have to be done by the board, as opposed to the board president. Can the board president really fire a committee? Has the board actually fined this lady, or is the board president merely threatening to bring this issue before the board?

32. sgmmac spews:

Try as you might – the symbol above was designed as a symbol for the campaign against nuclear weapons and was used in the 60′s as an anti-war symbol.

The symbols for peace in religion are the Dove and the olive branch.

The rainbow has also been used as a religious peace symbol.

The peace sign above isn’t religious and it isn’t anti-Christmas!

As for the woman who put it up, I hope she has a good lawyer and deep pockets. I hate homeowner’s associations and believe they should all be eliminated, but that won’t happen, because there is always some damn body who wants to tell everyone else how to live!

This state loves homeowner’s associations and their nanny rules!

Yes, I suppose a peace symbol is “antiwar.” What’s so bad about being for peace? What’s so great about war? Would you like me to post some links to war photos? You know, pictures of bodies that have been stabbed, lacerated, burned, blown apart, etc? Why are you anti-Christian, Mac? Jesus was for peace, not war.

She says it’s not an anti-war protest, I believe her. Most people I know see the peace sign as a universal peace symbol.

And of course, there’s the whole ‘satanic symbol’ nonsense. I even remember when that started in the late ’60s. A few fire and brimstone preachers needed something else to get upset about, so they did what they could to spread the story that it was a well known satanic symbol. Amazingly, it looks like at least the homeowner’s association president fell for it.

Well Moonbat!s, it looks like te imams on the plane were up to no good!

Yes Yos Lib Bro – Clueless, Just for you!

“Witnesses said three of the imams were praying loudly in the concourse and repeatedly shouted “Allah” when passengers were called for boarding US Airways Flight 300 to Phoenix.

“I was suspicious by the way they were praying very loud,” the gate agent told the Minneapolis Police Department.

Passengers and flight attendants told law-enforcement officials the imams switched from their assigned seats to a pattern associated with the September 11 terrorist attacks and also found in probes of U.S. security since the attacks — two in the front row first-class, two in the middle of the plane on the exit aisle and two in the rear of the cabin.

More info from interviewed passengers. Why didn’t the MSM trumpet this? Libtard bias!

The imams who claimed two first-class seats said their tickets were upgraded. The gate agent told police that when the imams asked to be upgraded, they were told no such seats were available. Nevertheless, the two men were seated in first class when removed.”

However, passgengers claim along with US Airways the men kept interfering with the boarding process by going back and forth to talk amongst each other. Their seating pattern — again, not that assigned by the airline — positioned them at every egress point from the aircraft.

They asked for seat-belt extenders. They didn’t use them. Once they received them from the flight attendants, the imams put them under their seats, and not on the seat belts that purportedly would not fit them. Everyone who saw that understandably wondered why the imams requested them in the first place.

A senior American intelligence official said Monday that the Iranian-backed group Hezbollah had been training members of the Mahdi Army, the Iraqi Shiite militia led by Moktada al-Sadr.
The official said that 1,000 to 2,000 fighters from the Mahdi Army and other Shiite militias had been trained by Hezbollah in Lebanon. A small number of Hezbollah operatives have also visited Iraq to help with training, the official said.

Iran has facilitated the link between Hezbollah and the Shiite militias in Iraq, the official said. Syrian officials have also cooperated, though there is debate about whether it has the blessing of the senior leaders in Syria.

42. Mike Webb SUCKS spews:

Yes Libtard Moonbat!s are concerned with our National Security.

A Mississippi Democrat in line to become chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee has warned the nation’s largest uniform supplier it faces criminal charges if it follows a White House proposal to recheck workers with mismatched Social Security numbers and fire those who cannot resolve the discrepancy in 60 days.
Rep. Bennie Thompson said in a letter to Cintas Corp. it could be charged with “illegal activities in violation of state and federal law” if any of its 32,000 employees are terminated because they gave incorrect Social Security numbers to be hired.

“I am deeply troubled by Cintas’ recent policy change regarding the Social Security Administration’s ‘no match’ letters,” Mr. Thompson said in the Nov. 2 letter. “It is my understanding that hundreds of Cintas’ immigrant workers have received these letters. I am extremely concerned about any potentially discriminatory actions targeting this community.”

In June, President Bush proposed new guidelines concerning “no-match” letters from the Social Security Administration, saying he wanted to make it easier for employers to verify workers’ eligibility and continue to hold them accountable for those they hire.”

Well Moonbat!s I thought the SSA had to verify SSNs to determine if these are illegals and allow for the taxes to be correctly collected. The miniscule Furball went on record here in Michael Richards land and said he agreed to tax illegals.

Anti-Santa campaign

Anti-Santa campaigners claim Father Christmas was invented by Coca-Cola and detracts from the true spirit of the festive season.

Austria’s biggest Christmas market is in front of the Vienna city hall where thousands of visitors march past stalls offering everything related to Xmas – except Santa.

The only Santa to be seen is the one in the middle of the occasional ‘Ban Santa’ stickers.

A Vienna city hall spokesman confirmed: “There are rules governing what stallholders can do and one of them is to agree not to use the image of santa as a condition of being able to trade there.

“Santa is an English language creation, people who want to see him should go to America where I am sure Coca Cola will be happy to oblige.”

The move in Vienna has been followed by Christmas markets across Austria and Germany where St Nicholas is the traditional bearer of Christmas gifts.

Bettina Schade, from the Frankfurter Nicholas Initiative in Germany, said: “We object to the material things, the hectic rush to buy gifts, and the ubiquity of the bearded man in the red suit that are taking away from the core meaning of Christmas.

“The Christian origins of Christmas, like the birth of Jesus, have receded into the background. It’s becoming more and more a festival that is reduced to simply worldly gifts and commerce.”

I never claimed “anything” is a Freeper trick. I said posting phone numbers on the internet is a Freeper trick, which it is:

“Cyber stalking

“Some members of Free Republic have been accused of cyberstalking. The owners of a restaurant who notified authorities when an underage Jenna Bush attempted to illegally purchase liquor at the establishment had their name, residential address, maps and directions, date of birth, drivers license and registration information, physical description, and information about their infant child posted on the Free Republic forums. Some of the posters advocated violence toward the restaurant’s patrons, as well as destroying it physically.”

Yeah, MWS, this is a Freeper trick. So is mailing fake anthrax to public officials and celebrities:

“Chad Castagana

“Chad Castagana 39, of Woodland Hills, California was arrested on 11-12-2006 by a Joint Terrorism Task Force comprised of FBI agents from both New York and California, along with US Postal authorities, for allegedly sending profane and death-threatening letters containing ‘white powder’ to Liberal politicians, journalists, and celebrities.
