A 'dad' is tenth most popular Christmas list request for children

When it comes to Christmas, it might be safe to assume children will ask Santa for an extensive list of toys, games and treats.
But a survey of their typical lists for Father Christmas has shown many have more serious concerns, requesting "a dad" instead.
A study of 2,000 British parents found most children will put a new baby brother or sister at the top of their Christmas list, closely followed by a request for a real-life reindeer.
A "pet horse" was the third most popular choice, with a "car" making a bizarre entry at number four.

War on fatherhood rages on. It’s at the core of Marxist (on the human level) and Satanic (on the spiritual level) rebellion against the Maker of all things.

(*Too many* damned conservatives in the GOP primaries split the vote for Romney. We are SO retarded!)
Yet the liberal media says we should legalize lesbian marriage and INTENTIONALLY deny children a father.

I wonder what position “dad” would be in if you just looked at the surveys of single parent households. I bet it would be in a lot higher position than 10th place!
Although many women prefer “Uncle Sam” to a real husband, I don’t think any child would agree.

I wonder why this item was passed over. I know a lot of adults are afraid of the effort and cost of a child, but compared to a reindeer in the house, it's easy.
My James got a baby sister for his birthday last year: he'll be 9 on January 19, and Kathleen will be 1.

Have to pay for a worthless diploma from a worthless "top-flight" university. Otherwise life isn't worth living. I guess you didn't get the memo.

I have a management degree, which is very useful in my current occupation!
Merry Christmas. I hope everything is brilliant where you are ... and no livestock indoors.
