Maybe his nut sac HVAC system is stuck open.

Mac Mucous claims men have those.

I don't. I have to cool my own nuts when they get hot.

Maybe I can get a Obama subsidy.

A hot nut sac subsidy.

You spend several years in prison as an innocent man and see if you come out all forgiving and able to move on.
That was your secular system that let him down, not a religious one. It is religious groups that go into prisons to help those guys, not your kind.
But I thought our way of life, right down to our justice system, was informed by christian theology?

Can't have it both ways, dave.

It’s a known fact that the Christmas Holidays presents a major influx of cash flow to business owners and the US economy. Including new car sales.

Yet some business refuse to put the word “Christmas” in any of their advertisements. One of those is Radio Shack. But they do substitute the word “Holiday.”

Interesting, because the word “Holiday,” is a derivative of the words “Holy Day.” Now the secret is out, what are they going to use instead of “Holiday?”

Anyway you look at it Christmas has it’s clutches on our economy. And it’s not going away. So if you’re a Scrooge. Enjoy the peace and quiet at home. Because the shopping malls are jammed packed.

Hi, Luci!

It's a bit like beating your head against a wall - not much fun while you're at it, but it's lovely when you leave off.

And sometimes I can't help trying.

Jews never want to see Christmas disappear. That is 50% or more of the profits of many of their businesses. Which, BTW, includes Christmas trees, decorations, and you name it.

You take away the spiritual and religious aspects of the day and you won't have the impetus for buying the decorations or that shopping season that starts at Thanksgiving.

All which feeds government coffers as taxes.

Turn it secular and it will dry up.

If you are as thick headed as you said, that ponytail may be stressing those hair roots, and/or overheating your brain. Don't pull it back so tight.

Now imagine youre trolling for fish but the fish are smart, you could not catch them, Right? They could see the net or the line or hear the boat engines etc. Now , have topix atheists including the bifurcated atheist/rational skeptic duality variety and their concomitant rhetoric, considered that if those who operate outside of the known laws and possibilities of man,(spiritual beings etc) are smart, then man could never catch them, or figure them out. This being the case in my opinion. I conclude then, that atheists are arrogant, thinking their meager and limited knowledge and ability of man is some sort of benchmark.

My very fine hair is also very thick. Absolute necessity to get seriously thinned every two months. Like yours, my head can get real dense in no time.

We have something in common.

And what is even funnier? Nothing about "christmas" is actually about celebration of mass or your fictional christ.

The lighted tree? Evergreen branches? Holly? Mistletoe? All of these go back to the pagan Druid worship traditions.

The exchange of gifts? Roman Saturnalia celebrating winter solstice.

The date? Coincides, again, with winter solstice.

In fact? There is nothing about it that is overtly christian.

How amusing.
