Suppose you'd rather have a Republican. Keep electing Republicans and we'll all be speaking Chinese and Arabic. After they complete the sell off of America to OPEC and Communist China all for greed and unregulated Capitalism and foreign trade.

Sorry but, you have it all backwards, did you mean keep electing Democrats? because if we do that, the U.S.A. will no longer be. Democrats want to kiss a** to other country's making the US look week! America needs to remember that things were much safer when we are feared and not liked, Safe, and feared kept this country strong. Now, it's all falling apart. The Republicans are the one's to bring us back to the America we all once loved and protected.

In response to "TRULY RUINED: The true meaning of Christmas is the birth of Christ, but ask any child what Christmas means to them and their answer will always be Santa and presents. We have lost our priority somewhere. Shame on us."

While I do agree to a point I disagree with that Christmas is only for the birth of Christ.

The Church "adopted and absorbed" pagan festivals and Pope Julius I picked 12/25 as the birth date of Jesus (Armenia celebrated 1/6 and theories have suggested the true timeframe of Jesus' birth was either Spring or Fall). The Church wisely did not dictate how the new holiday should be celebrated which means it could retain a celebration of Secular and Religious traditions.

Just as I find it objectionable that the greeting "Merry Christmas" was being forbidden for so long and considered not PC, I also find it objectionable to classify Christmas as solely a holiday for the birth of Christ. The Christmas Spirit is supposed to be a time of Peace, Love and Goodwill towards all...that should include any manner in which someone wishes to celebrate the holiday. If someone wants to make it all about Santa and gifts then they should not be condemned for it.

I found it outrageous when someone actually posted in a different forum that if someone did not believe in Jesus they shouldn't be allowed to celebrate Christmas. How's that for a large dose of Bah-Humbug?

US Congresswomen Niki Tsongas won by 13%. When Brown won 52-48% it was considered a big deal. now all of a sudden 13 percentage point in her district is no big thing.

We like our Niki! So do the people of her district who elected her overwhelmingly. The vote speaks for itself , not the idiotic insults from the retarded Republican sympathizers out there- hope the Republicans take away your Medicare and Social Security which they never voted for to begin with, turn it over to the "private sector", raise your premiums, reduce your coverage, reject your claims.

I always know what side my bread is buttered on, the Democrat side.
