Gov. Lincoln Chafee: It´s
Not ´Tradition´ to Call
It a Christmas Tree

Cybercast News Service, by Jon Street

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/6/2012 10:50:01 AM

Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I-R.I.) told CNSNews.com on Wednesday that his administration calls the decorated evergreen tree erected in the Rhode Island State House in December a “holiday tree”--rather than a "Christmas tree"--because that is what the tree is traditionally called. CNSNews.com spoke with Chafee following his remarks at the National Governors Association national summit in Arlington, Va. "You have taken some recent criticism about changing the name of the State House tree to a holiday tree," asked CNSNews.com. "Would you say that you believe in Christmas?"

Comments:
I´m so sick of these insane morons who place more importance on the minority rather than the majority. How he could say something so pathetically stupid is beyond me.

Wake up call to Rhode Island voters. Why do you continue to elect this flaming moron? Traditionally called a holiday tree? Whose tradition was that? Druids in the dark ages before the advent of Christianity?

On Jan. 10, 1963, Congressman Albert S. Herlong Jr. of Florida read a list of 45 Communist goals into the Congressional Record.
...
27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."
28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state"
Replacing belief in the creator with belief in the earthly man-controlled State.
29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
And replace our nation of "laws, not men" with royal decree emanating from appointed judges and executive orders. Replace elected officials with bureaucrats.
...
32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
...

Chafee is an absolute dunce, dumber than dirt, who was elected only because of his name, his father being not quite as dumb.

In pennsylvania, we suffer with the baby killing catholic, bobby casey jr, who pretended to be his father, and has been reelected to the U.S. senate.

Shame on both of them.

Actually, yes it is a tradition you blithering moron! It was introduced in the United States about 110 years ago. The Constitution guarantees "Freedom of Religion", not "Freedom From Religion". If people want to have a Christmas Tree, let them. If Jews want to have a Menorah, let them. Out country is founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and traditions. If you want to have a "Holiday Tree", call it what ever you want, although exactly what holiday you are celebrating is questionable.

Agree with #8. They (the left) tell us to "Take down that TREE!" And we do. They tell us "NO prayer!" And we stop.

There is coming a time where many of us are going to say no...

Even an uneducated man can be governor. It goes to show how simple such jobs are. We allow these types of people to steer our nation? If we must change our form of government I support a benign tyrant of intellectual quality over what we have. Hail Caeser! I see why the Roman Republic died.

It IS a tradition, it is NOt a symbol. And if the jackass has trouble with "Christmas tree", call it a "Tannenbaum". Because I seriously doubt these flaming idiots know what a tannenbaum is.

It´s traditional in some states to get rid of idiotic Gubers - like this one.

We need a constitutional amendment to redefine freedom of religion, pointing out the fallacy
of a notion of separation of church and state.
And specifically allowing Christian religious prayer in public schools again.

Earl Warren as Commie Chief Justice was a
California Jackass who forced his nonsense upon us all.
Our nation has been transformed by his liberal idiocy.
Ike admitted Earl Warren was his worst appointment and a Big Mistake.

I´ll say.

Yet Gov. Lincoln Chafee covets the votes of those who believe in the Christmas tradition. A Christian would be a fool not to see through the lying charade this evil man is foisting upon the electorate.

No offence meant Mr. Chaffee, but you have squandered your time as the chief magistrate of your State. Denying you another term in office is the justifiable price you MUST pay for your stupidity.

It´s not a Chanukah bush, a maypole, the Muzlim aren´t singing carols, and no one is hugging the tree.

Matter of a fact, Christmas is so commercialized, there isn´t much religious connatation since the angel has been replaced by bows and glitz.

After Christmas, recycle that evergreen where the sun won´t materialize any time soon.

Facebook removes my post about

Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/17/2014 9:45:44 PM     Post Reply
Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
