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

Cybercast News Service, by Jon Street

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.

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.

A Wisconsin senator said he felt some staff of GOP House members were standing in the way of getting more support for his lawsuit against President Obama’s executive overreach. On Monday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) filed an answer to the government’s motion to dismiss his lawsuit over the Obama administration’s special Obamacare treatment of Congress and its staff. “The Office of Personnel Management’s rule restoring tax preferred congressional health care subsidies that the Affordable Care Act eliminated reflects a stunning disregard for the law.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, considering a 2016 presidential bid, does not have the support of his party´s base, with just one in four Republicans eager for him to run and an even worse 18 percent of self-identified conservatives backing his bid.

Out and about this weekend, I saw no less than three men who appeared to be heterosexual wearing little buns on the tops of their heads. This must drive the Republican Party crazy. Because in a way, man-buns are the greatest threat to conservative culture and ideology. On Meet the Press this weekend, David Brooks expressed the panic of older white male conservatives nationwide when he opined, “Obama, whether deservedly or not, does have a—I’ll say it crudely—but a manhood problem in the Middle East.

The Justice Department moved Wednesday to significantly expand the number of people eligible for clemency, issuing new guidelines allowing certain prisoners who already have served at least 10 years behind bars to apply for release. The initiative is part of a broader Obama administration effort to ease sentences for nonviolent drug offenders. Deputy Attorney General James Cole outlined the changes, which include six separate criteria inmates must meet to be eligible, on Wednesday morning. Among the requirements is that inmates must have served at least 10 years of their federal sentence and not have a "significant criminal history." They must

The column I wrote last week, it turns out, has created somewhat of a storm. This is due to one thing only: Rush Limbaugh read it aloud on his radio program. (Start reading in the middle from where it says “BREAK TRANSCRIPT.”) That one decision by Rush led all of our mutual enemies to go viral, sending numerous Tweets and Facebook posts attacking Rush and me for supposedly arguing that the anti-Semitic neo-Nazi Glenn Miller acted because of Max Blumenthal. Of course, as I wrote last week in an addendum, this was not the point I was making. I wrote the following, and repeat it once again:

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
