I see Rep Owens voted present -- I assume that's Major Owens from Brooklyn -- is still swimming the route.http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:ePoeg7ANdNAJ:www.iaff.org/across/news/LegCon02/031802owen.jpg

Maybe so but they did not start this let's get rid of Christmas movement - it was the god haters - so spare me your "Holiday" correctness - Merry Christmas

Oh don't be ridiculous you whiner. If hearing "Happy Holidays" in your local Target is the worst injury you've ever suffered, you're pretty damn lucky. Congress passes meaningless bulls*** resolutions like this whenever they want to waste taxpayers' time and money instead of worrying about important things.

Not only is this posturing, but its the silliest posturing I've ever heard of.

I love the title of the piece "22 Congressmen Hate Christmas". No bias at Nexmax. No sir.

But seriously folks....

There might be several reasons one might cast a "No" vote here, and none of them would mean that the person hated Christmas. Perhaps they think the resolution is frivolous. Perhaps they think Congress has better things to do with its time. Perhaps they see the resolution as pure political pandering. Perhaps they think this type of resolution is dangerously close to "endorsing" a particular religion and therefore a bad idea.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz of the 20th district (D - FL):

A vicious anti-Christian bigot and anti-American enemy of the nation.

Whiner - OK - happy holiday's is not reflective of the holiday - It is and has always been Christmas for it to mandated by a business to be called Happy Holiday's for fear from a few real whiners is not right - and you have your head where the sun does not shine if you fail to see the distinction.

Like I said this would never have come up in congress if the lefty loonies had not tried to press the issue - now me I am not that full of love and charity for the screwy left - If I had my way we would ship them all to the Bay area and pray for the big one (earth quake)- there how is that for whining, man I am sick of these freakin slime balls.

Happy Holiday - no I really mean Merry Christmas

Perhaps, and far more likely than any of those, is that they are God-hating and Christmas-hating liberals. How many pro-lifers among the 22? How many supporters of actual marriage vs. lavender make-believe?

Nancy Pelosi (Demonrat-San Francisco) would most certainly support it based on the fact she has visited Lakewood Church, Joel Osteen, Houston - and Lakewood is known to be a Christian organization.

Don't be ridiculous. Businesses aren't mandating anything. Are they preventing you from celebrating Christmas? All of you guys are being such whiners.

Like I said this would never have come up in congress if the lefty loonies had not tried to press the issue.

This isn't a left-right issue, this is a stupid issue. You really think a bunch of Christianity-hating leftists are running Walmart? No, this is simply business. Again, nobody's trying to force you to change your religious beliefs or practices, so kindly focus on real issues.

Fabricate an issue, any issue, local talk radio morons jump on it because it fills time between commercials and, what da' you know, it becomes a national farce worthy of Dr. What his name's, minions in the House abandoning real congressional issues to worry whether the aged greeter at Walmart says Merry Christmas instead of: ''did you know that Walmart screws me out of my meal breaks and makes me work overtime off the clock?'' Hey, with these clowns the King-in-Chief and the Vice-King, in the exercise of their Divine Right to do as they damn well please and to hell with the law, must be rationalized irrespective of how silly the attempt at justification may be.

Ain't life under this adminsitration's fist great???

Nadler, Weiner, Lantos and several other Jewish members of congress supported this resolution. Wexler and Wasserman-Schultz opposed it because they have JINO majority districts in South Florida where even Orthodox Jews have trouble with the locals.

Ah, another Palecon Populist Moonbat.

May your afterlife be standing in-line at a Wal-Mart in Guangzhou, decorated with nude photos of Helen Thomas.

"No one," she said, "should feel like they have done something wrong by wishing someone a Merry Christmas."

..God bless us everyone..


Twenty-two Democrats played Scrooge and disagreed.
