Common sense after over 2 decades. For your list?

"It is just a tree, but when you put Christian in front of it, it becomes a symbol of the majority," Gaylor said.
Then in the spirit of Socialism, call it "The People's Tree".

I’m really getting very tired of this nonsense.....How many more years are we going to have to keep up this fight, I’ll be damned if I’m going to give in to the “happy holiday” crowd, but man oh man, every year it starts a little bit earlier and it gets a little more ridiculous....WHERE/WHEN does it all end?

With issues like this, when you can’t call a Christmas tree a Christmas tree, then you may as well just put up a Festivus Pole. Maybe then everybody will be disgusted enough to return to calling decorations by their true name. One can only hope!
I like Christmas trees and I’m Jewish. They look very nice next to our Chanukah bush.
Now, as for “The tree is being put up in the Capitol rotunda today,” I have another suggestion. Let’s shove it up Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation, put a light bulb in her mouth, and call her Rudolph Gaylor The Red-Nosed Holiday Tree.
Let her glow, let her glow, let her glow.
Wisconsin, it figures!

Westling said there will be a menorah on display...
Can't call it that. I prefer "holiday candelabra."
Annie Laurie Gaylor, co-president of the Madison-based Freedom From Religion Foundation...
There are catchphrases that tell you the user is attempting a power grab, and "freedom from" is one of them. "Freedom from fear," for example, tells you that the user is claiming the right to a veto on any of your activities she or he considers threatening. Anyone using "freedom from" wants something from you, usually your freedom.

The issue? What to call the tree that sits in the Wisconsin State Capitol during the holiday season.
Call it Brett Favre.

I was born and raised in Wisconsin. I remember walking around the Capital Square and meeting and talking with Governor Lee Sherman Driefus. I remember when Madison was the number one city to live in and raise a family. In the late 60s and early 70s, it was taken over by the leftists and turned into a third world city with the influx of poor blacks from Mississippi and Louisiana!
Now, Wisconsin and Madison in particular has become the Zimbabwe of the USA.

Who cares! Boy I wish this was the only issue we had to worry about. Man we have a war going on, an election very soon, abortions every minute and we worry about some stupid title. God I am so glad I am secure in my Christian Faith. I feel sorry for those who are not and need to be reminded about Jesus Christ.
Oh, just let them put up the red crescent and get it over with.
That place sucks.
