It's No Longer "Merry Christmas," Now it's Happy Hanukkah

How the most celebrated holiday in the USA has been perverted over the decades. From having a White House lawn with a Nativity Scene then:
December 17, 1954

President and Participants: President Eisenhower, accompanied by Mrs. Eisenhower, delivered a Christmas message before lighting the National Community Christmas Tree at 5:25 p.m.
Pageant elements included a life-size nativity scene for the first time, exhibition booths, and a stage for nightly entertainment including tableaux, concerts, and religious services. Reindeer arrived in a sleigh driven by "Santa Claus" on December 17. [Washington Post, December 16-17, 1954
.]
To President 'Sotero' balking against having the Nativity Scene:
Report: Obamas balked at WH Nativity scene

The lunch conversation inevitably turned to whether the White House would display its crèche, customarily placed in a prominent spot in the East Room. Ms. Rogers, this participant said, replied that the Obamas did not intend to put the manger scene on display — a remark that drew an audible gasp from the tight-knit social secretary sisterhood. (A White House official confirmed that there had been internal discussions about making Christmas more inclusive and whether to display the crèche.)
To this, which adorns the front lawn of the White House these days during the Christmas season:

Just don't look for the Nativity Scene to be on the WH lawn, as the ADL got that declared VERBOTEN back in 1983.

Any Questions?

    Is that a device to attract satan or a tool that satan uses to clean his unholy ...whenever he's around casa blanca?

  3. I too have trouble with Bogger.

    Can't use part of the editing process, because it will eat up part of what I'm trying to post.

    This has been going on for several months, even though I have a fairly new computer with all the software updates???

    Even weirder this morning, someone must of hacked into the DISH satellite, because some of the regular channels have been replaced with ones from China, India and Spain.

    Even the 'Cartoon News Network' isn't on, its been replaced by some India programming with no subtitles.

    Anyway, I found this about Dish network hacking news today, happened in your state:

    Viewers report foreign languages on Dish Network
    by Paul Adler, KY3 News



    SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Viewers are calling the KY3 Newsroom and posting information on our KY3 Ozarks Today Facebook page about getting the wrong channels on Dish Network on Tuesday morning. Some of the channels are apparently in Chinese, Arabic and other languages.

    Ted Helms told us on Facebook, "Several of my channels above the locals are in some strange language."

    Another Facebook friend told us, "Mine is messed up! Almost all of them are in a foreign language."

    A reporter had an online chat with a Dish representative named Kathy.

    "I do apologize that this has happened. I know how frustrating this can be. This is a known issue that we are currently aware of. At this time, we do not have a timeline for resolution, however we are working to correct the issue," she said.

    "Do you know what's causing the problem?" the reporter asked.

    "As this is a technical issue I request you to please wait for couple of hours as our technical department is working to fix the issue," Kathy replied.

    When we learn more from Dish about the problem, we'll let you know.



    Oy, I see Arabic is listed there too! oh oh ... adam pearlman is being very productive somewhere!
