Seniors Outraged Over
Christmas Tree Ban

Fox News, by Todd Starnes

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 12/6/2012 11:02:20 AM

Residents of a senior adult apartment complex in California staged a protest after the management of their building announced a ban on Christmas trees and menorahs in communal areas. (Snip) “We’re all angry,” resident Fern Scheel told the Los Angeles Daily News.“We want that tree. Where’s our freedom? This is ridiculous.” JB Partners Group sent a memorandum to The Willows in Newhall, Calif. ordering them to remove the Christmas tree from the community room because they deemed it a religious symbol, the newspaper reported.

Comments:
As well they should be! The election of 0bama sure has brought out the worst in every sick leftist in this country.

I am always amazed at the sheer clueless thinking of progressive fascists. Did they ever stop and think that this will fly at anytime, let alone Christmas time? They will be forced to back down and look like the fools they are.

Our apartment development in Manhattan had both a Christmas tree lighting celebration last week along with carolers and refreshments, and a menorah lighting a couple of days later ... out in the park area between the buildings.

When we can be, we must be proactive. Here´s the email address for the owners: contact@jbproperty.net

Let´s bombard their email box and let them know what we think of this outrageous decision!

I pray that all these attempts at repression of religious expression (although for many a Christmas tree has absolutely no religious connotation!) will result in a more vigorous resurgence of such.

Ok, so they are "Angry". What are they gonna do about it? Nothing, thats what. They will sulk in their apartments and shut-up, eat their gruel and that will be the end of it.

What should they do? They should put up a tree anyways. If it is taken down, put up another, and another. This is an apartment management decision, nothing more. Easily fought, and easily won. So tired of folks bowing to leftists when a small showing of spine would win the day...

I used to live in Newhall. It is home to a large population of evangelicals, churches, and Pastor John MacArthur´s school, The Master´s College. The Christian community there was very strong and involved when I left almost a decade ago.
That this is in the news now is very disturbing.

...but then, everything in the news these days is very disturbing. The liberals are going hog-wild in their new amerika.

Here is what I sent them:

The constitution guarantees "Freedom OF religion" NOT "freedom from religion". You people are denying these seniors their constitutional right, and they should initiate a class action law suit against you. I hope they do, and I hope they win. They could then own your complex, instead of rent from people such as yourselves

Have two community rooms. One with Christmas and one without. Let the old folks choose where they want to spend their time.

A Christmas tree is not really a religious symbol, that term being mmore properly reserved for representations of Jesus Christ´s time on earth. The Christmas tree is a tradition arising from Germany in the 1800s when it was a joyful thing to do to bring light and life to brighten the dreary days of winter. It is a vehicle for outward expressions of family love; and when there is no longer the blood related family and the community of friends has become ´family´, who should dare to deny such a pleasure.

There needs to be a Supreme Court-level challenge against all this crapola to establish once and for all that expression of religion is not against the Constitution. The leftists are destroying religion one school, church, and community at a time. They don´t have the funds or organization to stand up against the massive funding of the ACLU and others.

#5. I feel just the same way. You have a neighbor who gets picked on by someone for his flag height, size, etc.? So every house within 6 blocks (or more) starts permanently flying their OWN flags. Make these troublemakers regret they ever opened their mouths. Same with this Christmas bashing. So, volunteers bring free Christmas trees for every single private room in the place. Seniors, gather and sing Christmas hymns every day. Start praying in the "communal" areas. Invite Rabbis and Pastors in for special things in separate apartments. Call the media.. Ladies, do some tearful interviews for the national media. Call O´Rielly. These are just a few ideas. Call Jay Sekulow´s office for advice. FIGHT BACK.

Where is the ACLU ?

Report: Wendy Davis caught
up in FBI investigation
Daily Caller, by Alex Pappas    Original Article

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Documents: Biden and Kerry both

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

The ´soft despotism´ of regulation

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

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'

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances.

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
