Post-Christmas/Winter Holiday Greeting

A friend of mine sent this e-mail forward to me yesterday, and I thought it was worth publishing here:

For My Democratic Friends:

"Please accept with no obligation, implied or implicit, our best wishes for a multicultural, socially responsible, gender-neutral, environmentally conscious, secular celebration of the winter solstice holiday, with respect for your religious/secular persuasion and traditions, or your choice not to practice religious traditions at all. We also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2006, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere. This wish is given without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee. By accepting these greetings you are accepting these terms. This greeting may be subject to clarification or withdrawal and is not transferable. It implies no promise by the wisher to actually implement any of the wishes for herself or himself or others, implies no warrantees of any kind, is void where prohibited by law or wherever it may cause any person to be uncomfortable in way. "

For My Republican Friends:

"Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year"

Yeah.. I saw that at Right On, as well.

Indignantly, I pointed out...he neglected his Libertarian friends.

What? Is Christmas only a bi-partisan event?

That's funny, and I agree with Rush--in order for something to be funny there has to be a kernel of truth in it. :)

Isn't that a great greeting? I should have sent it to my in-laws!

Yeah, I'll have to remember it for IF I send out Christmas cards next year. I'm horrible at sending out snail mail, these days.

remember banruptcy legislation, guess who benefited?

(Ugh) "Fair" Amendments Proposed By A Few Democrats Beholden to the Special Interests of Ordinary Americans:

…And rightfully rejected by Republicans:

S. Amdt 16 (Durbin): To protect service members and veterans from means testing in bankruptcy, and to disallow certain claims by lenders charging usurious interest rates to our service men and women. REJECTED
S.Amdt. 38 (Durbin): Discouraging predatory lending practices REJECTED
S.Amdt. 42 (Schumer): To limit the exemption for asset protection trusts. REJECTED
S.Amdt. 28 (Kennedy): To exempt debtors whose financial problems were caused by serious medical problems from means testing. REJECTED
S.Amdt. 29 (Kennedy): To provide protection for medical debt homeowners. REJECTED
S.Amdt. 31 (Dayton): To limit the amount of interest that can be charged on any extension of credit to 30 percent. REJECTED

I find it odd this democrat never received that email greeting.


This conservative democrat wishes you a very happy New Year!

Perhaps I shall go visit his blog and spam the hell out of every one of his posts with this same e-mail greeting?

Kyle, I indulged your off-topic comment earlier, in another post, but I won't do it again. I set the agenda on my blog. What are you...a newbie blogger? If you can't post on-topic, and actually contribute here, I might start deleting your spam. Disagree with the topic of the post, and I'm fine with it. Show me that I'm wrong on a topic, and I'll thank you for the education. But please have some class and quit posting like a n00b, humping my leg for attention.

as usual when you can't refute the argument you resort to other tactics: insults, attack the messenger, red herrings. say i posted a something on which i clearly seemed to be in the wrong - would you hesitate to refute me or what you resort to the tactic you just used?

Are you really this dense? Or is it pretense? POST ON TOPIC! What is so hard to understand about that?

"As usual" you say? You act like we've been posting together for years, and each time you post, I can't back up my side of the argument.

If all you got out of my last response was insults, I guess you hear what you want to hear, don't you? Learn some reading comprehension skills and quit treating me like the summation of all Republican talking points.

I said, I indulged you the last time by responding to your off-topic snipe. I'm not going to let you post whatever silly garbage you want to get off your chest, when it has nothing to do WITH THE TOPIC!

Before even getting to know the people you've been attacking (here and elsewhere), you have been talking right past them, not addressing their opinions specifically, but attacking them as generic, stereotypical conservative Republicans.

And because you can't seem to understand this, tell me, WHAT IS THIS POST ABOUT?


I think I'm going to go post off-topic on your blog. I'll talk about whatever comes to mind. Maybe that'll make you understand what "leaving comments" is supposed to be about?

Seriously, if you want courtesy, try dishing out a little. Rather than digesting the insults, why don't you digest the lessons I'm feeding you here? It'll make you a better commenter on other people's blogs.

instead of wasting your energy on lecturing me about courtesy why don't you put it to more effective use and answer for your party's crimes.

According to this, I only burned off one calorie in lecturing you. I suppose any attempts to re-educate you on "how not to post like a n00b" or cleanse you of the liberal brainwash is "wasted energy". Paying you any attention at all, when you are playing the part of a troll, is "wasted energy". Most liberal ideas is "wasted energy". Actually, I'd say "harmful energy". Why don't you answer for your liberal party's crime in how they've made poverty and education worse in this country?

One more time:

1)Read the post
2)post a comment related to the post.

How hard is that to understand...Kyle?

Have a nice day....Kyle.

I was about to comment on the funny Dem greeting when I see that "Kyle" has infested your board, WS.

I'm sorry.

Please accept my apologies. And... my best wishes for a great 2006!

Blogger The WordSmith from Nantucket said...

Aww...you should have steered us back on topic and posted your comment!

No need to apologize for Kyle. He followed me back when I "pissed in his beer", as Mark put it.

Kyle just reminds me of liberals who have their heads in the clouds. He appears to be tilting with windmills in some of his posts that I've seen, here and elsewhere. Not hearing what I'm saying, but what he wants to hear me say. Like I'm some generic Republican punching dummy he can vent all his rage on, assuming things about me I haven't even argued on yet.

His opinions are still welcomed here and I don't harbor any real ill will, yet.
