Well, yes and no. The War on Christmas not real other than the one waged by the greedy corporations, but the War on the family is. My family members have to work until 10:00pm on Christmas Eve...and back to work a 4:00am the morning after Christmas. THIS IS NUTS! No time for family at ALL! Really folks..we need to stop this corporate crap. There is more to life than the bottom line. Can ANYONE explain why someone would have to work at McDonald's ON THANKSGIVING From 1:00pm to 5PM?
If there is a War on Christmas...look no further than these Scrooge, greedy corporations! While we're at it...lets bring the concept of weekends back as well!

You can always rely on the insane drunk, Nancy Botwin to come in and spew her acrid guts and reveal for all that didn't already know why she's known as the Topix Ass.

I can always count on the Topix hillbilly TROLL to spew vile BS.

So, you don't agree with my assessment of corporate crap? You don't think not having time with your family is important?

Do you have anything of value to say? Na...didn't think so.

Merry Christmas...

Peace...Love and Forgive Everyone...

YES...let's all become...JUST LIKE EUROPE! lmao
Are you for real?
Do you honestly believe those "greedy corporations" would be open, if there wasn't a demand? Instead of throwing mud at businesses that provide jobs, why not direct your raging hormones at those that patronize them on holidays?

There is no Christ in Christmas in Eugene, OR.
Those representing the city have committed the worst selfish acts, by using good deeds, done by the campers, as excuses to evict homeless campers, and endanger their lives from now on.
There's no greater evil than harming human beings, and no worse time than Christmas to do it, but most our councilmen have proven that they don't work for people, they work for grass and dirt.
They aren't competent to lead, they follow those who finance them. Thatís illegal, unless youíre a politician.

Losers like you are proof that Christmas is under attack, sometimes from complete stupidity and hatred.
How DARE anybody have an opinion, except you, on YOUR forum. Obviously she'd not the one known as an ass. What filth!

The War on Christmas is one of the stupidest fake stories the Right has ever come up with. How this is even a question is beyond me. White Christians have a majority of the privileges in the country, and they just want someone to feel sorry for them. Trying to be more inclusive of all people does not infringe on the rights of Christians. Just because something is not blatantly Christian does not mean it is anti-Christian. Get over yourselves and recognize the privileges you do have, and the opportunities and visibility that others do not.

Just because people can't openly celebrate Christmas everywhere at any time of day does not mean there is a war on Christmas.
