It is just how .gov rolls.

I too would like wish everyone who reads, comments and Irish a very Merry Christmas during this time of the year when we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Christmastime was always a very special time growing up and still is even today. One of my grandmother's birthday fell on Christmas Eve and my large and extended family would congregate there and visit other kinfolks too. I still remember the smell of hardwood burning in the fireplace, fresh pumpkin pies being taken from the oven mixed with the smell of Cedar from the the decorations of boughs and Christmas trees. The house was decorated with Holly boughs with berries. There was mistletoe hanging above doorways that had been shot from the top of some tall oak with a shotgun. Who could forget the anticipation of opening presents? We had and still do have too much food, too many gifts, and sometimes too much too drink, but thank goodness for little children who really seem to be the ones who enjoy the magic that comes along with Christmas in the form of Nativity Scenes, Santa Claus, Elf on the Shelf, and all the decorations and lights that are part of Christmas. As a side not, it is more difficult to get into the Christmas Spirit this year with uncannily warm temperatures this month, tornadoes day before yesterday, and yesterday it was 79F degrees. I wish everyone a safe and prosperous New Year! This video was always one of my favorite Christmas songs as young boy.

From April 2015:
When Americans look out at the world, we see a swarm of threats. China seems resurgent and ambitious. Russia is aggressive. Iran menaces our allies. Middle East nations we once relied on are collapsing in flames. Latin American leaders sound steadily more anti-Yankee. Terror groups capture territory and commit horrific atrocities. We fight Ebola with one hand while fending off Central American children with the other.In fact, this world of threats is an illusion. The United States has no potent enemies. We are not only safe, but safer than any big power has been in all of modern history.
Geography is our greatest protector. Wide oceans separate us from potential aggressors. Our vast homeland is rich and productive. No other power on earth is blessed with this security.
Our other asset is the weakness of potential rivals. It will be generations before China is able to pose a serious challenge to the United States — and there is little evidence it wishes to do so. Russia is weak and in deep economic trouble — not always a friendly neighbor but no threat to the United States. Heart-rending violence in the Middle East has no serious implication for American security. As for domestic terrorism, the risk for Americans is modest: You have more chance of being struck by lightning on your birthday than of dying in a terror attack.

Little Thelma comes home from first grade, and tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine's Day.
"Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," she asks, "Will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?
Thelma's father thinks a bit then says "No, I don't think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?"
"The whole ISIS group," she says.
"Why them," her father asks in shock?
"Well," she says, "I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give them a valentine, they might start to think that maybe we're not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and then they sent valentines to them, they'd love everyone a lot. And then they'd start going all over the place telling everyone how much they loved them and how they didn't hate anyone anymore."
Her father's heart swells and he looks at his daughter with new found pride and he says:
Lady bought this nice dog that doesn't bite, etc. She lives next door to a mosque and the iman complains. I am not sure I understand why. Notice that the camera is shaking because the photographer is laughing.

** Accidentally walk up behind someone and shoot them. Uh huh. This takes BALLS to say with a straight face.
** I hate to say this, I REALLY hate to say this, but... yes, please. And here in the US too. In Boston, in NYC, in DC, LA, SF,
I WANT to see people die - NO! Emphatically NO. But we won't get serious about this global threat until it comes home how
** An absolute must-read, must-forward. Two salient points: 1) WW III is coming regardless of what we do, and 2) the historical
of the results of "moderate" revolutions in the Middle East.
