Christmas Reading Round Up

Here’s some Christmas reading for everyone. Hope ya’ll have had a happy, safe, and merry Christmas.

  • McCain’s New Deal Your Christmas present from John McCain. Big (Government) Economic Fix. (Via US NEWS)
  • Half Price Maybe she’s had a bit too much eggnog? Hillary says if we elect her that oil prices will drop by half. If she has that much influence why doesn’t she just use it now? It would earn votes faster than empty promises. (Via Lucianne)
  • Peace and Goodwill Huck makes the peace offering and Rush shows goodwill by accepting. Too bad that anonymous caller hasn’t shown the Christmas spirit yet.(Via Politico)
  • It’s a horse race to the finish New Hampshire might hand McCain a belated Christmas present. He’s within 3 points of Romney in N.H.. (Via Pajamas Media)
  • See that confused look? Interview with Harry Reid “Well, we’ve been able to accomplish quite a bit, but not very much, certainly not as much as I wanted to. I’m kind of frustrated, like the American people.” Yup. We’re frustrated with interfering nanny stater politicians. I had to look at that comment twice. Maybe Harry had been hitting the eggnog a bit too hard too? (Via Pajamas Media)
  • The Grinch is at it again Remember the scene where the Grinch steals the refrigerator? L.A. attempts to ban new fast food restaurants in the low income areas of the city. How happy do you think the inhabitants of those areas are going to be with the city taking away their job opportunities? It’s just another attempt by the nanny state to tell you what you can and can’t eat because they think you’re too dumb to make food choices for yourself. Check the Constitution. Is there anything in there that says government has the right to interfere in your diet? (Via Pajamas Media)
  • Clinton’s gift to veterans Clinton pledges her support to veterans. Wonder if they remember how the military was treated while the Clintons were in office? (Via Texas Fred)
  • Bill Clinton. The gift that keeps giving. First he crowns her a world class genius, now he’s given her an imaginary hand in the Irish Peace Talks. Her resume, prepared by Bill, keeps getting longer and longer, kinda like Pinnochio’s nose. (via Lucianne)
  • Awwww, They even went to church together. Looks like sister Hillary is preaching to the choir on Christmas Eve. (Via Sweetness and Light)
  • Illegals give the US a Christmas Present How many of you had visitors for the holidays that you are now quite happy to see leave? Like Chevy Chase in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation? Well here’s some good news. Illegal immigrants are self deporting, filling out applications for Mexican citizenship for their American anchor babies, and filing for duty free import to bring their belongings from the US back to Mexico. Sounds pretty permanent huh? Don’t let the door hit you in the backside on the way out! (Via CQ and Powerline Blog)
  • Pity Party In store Mastercard purchases were only up just under 4% but online purchases were up 22%. Seems to me that more shopping was done online than in store. Can you blame anyone? Also noted that luxury sales were up 7.1%. Maybe more people paid in cash or used Visa/Discover/AmEx/debit cards? Anything to make a recession appear to be looming on the horizon says she who couldn’t move through KMart yesterday afternoon for all the last minute shoppers crowding the aisles! Word to the wise watch the sales numbers for the next couple of days. Those gift cards purchsed in the last couple of weeks that don’t count in retail sales will be used with a vengeance plus some over the next three to five days. (Via Patterico)
  • Here’s some Christmas cheer:

    Spreading the Holiday Cheer Thank you South West airlines for picking up the tab to fly 180 soldiers home for their holiday leave. (Via Powerline Blog)

    A little American Christmas history that few people know of :

  • Washington Resigns George Washington resigns saying “I consider it an indispensable duty to close this last solemn act of my Official life, by commending the Interests of our dearest Country to the protection of Almighty God, and those who have the superintendence of them, to his holy keeping. Having now finished the work assigned me, I retire from the great theatre of Action; and bidding an Affectionate farewell to this August body under whose orders I have so long acted, I here offer my Commission, and take my leave of all the employments of public life.” (Via Powerline Blog)
  • While there’s lots more to cover, it’s just l’il ol’ me and I’m going to bed now. G’night!

    (Edit: I only thought I was going to bed until I saw my typos.)
    (Edit 2: Chevy Chase not Steve Martin…too much eggnog for me too I guess!)
