Christmas Day has come and gone, all the presents have been unwrapped, and now kids who did not get what they wanted under the tree are taking to Twitter to complain about their loved ones´ lacking gift choices. A user named Michael Trujillo lamented that his sisters got iPods this year while he was only given $100, adding that he cannot buy anything with that money. Another aggrieved gift recipient Gianna Rodriguez complained: ´Woooow all I got for Christmas was gift cards, perfume and slippers. My mom sucks at giving presents.´

If I was their Mother and knew what they had said, they would get nothing more until they learn to appreciate the meaning of a ´gift´.

If you know people who lived as children in the (first) "Great Depression" they might tell you how they got an orange for Christmas, and were glad to get it. Let´s hope these young coddled people don´t go through that kind of experience.

I have always liked getting a gift card. That way I can choose what I want. If the kid whose sisters got ipods and he didn´t, maybe he already had one or the money to get one himself? If not, then shame on mom for excluding him. I hope she had a really good reason, because excluding one child at the expense of the others isn´t right.

If these were my ´kids´, they would find out what real disappointment feels like for the rest of their birthdays and Christmases, when nothing arrived.

My dad talked about getting a new shirt or two, and maybe a pocket knife. He was also surrounded by family who loved him. He wasn´t poor, it was just that people weren´t so ridiculous about "proving" their love with lots of meaningless gifts.

I have made sure for the past couple of years that I have used gifts to fulfill real needs. I check on expensive gifts off and on for months, and am ready to pounce on a good sale price. If given a choice, I use PayPal or an echeck so I won´t have any debt at the end of the season that can´t be easily paid off.

Spoiled brats and people who would kill one another for a pair of overpriced Air Jordans give the holiday a bad name.

And what wonderful meaningful presents did they give to their family members, not to mention how much did they donate to the Salvation Army kettles, other organizations, or people in need?

I am absolutely livid about these brats´ complaints. First of all, the spelling errors are ridiculous. These children need to learn some humility and be thankful that they have family members who are able to get them anything for Christmas. I also can´t help but wonder what these brats got for their parents for Christmas. My bet? Nothing.

I believe the children are our future and I´m afraid....very afraid.

Friends of mine who have foster children fielded a complaint from one of them: ´Thanks for the game, but it´s the wrong game.´ Mom´s reply: ´Fine, I´ll just give it to someone who´s more appreciative.´ Dad´s reply: ´I sense a return. I could use the cash right about now.´

Good parents.

What an ungrateful kid to complain about receiving $100! That is what I gave each of my grandchildren. There are 12 of them. Add it up. It was a major sacrifice for this fixed income senior who is about to lose her business to foreclosure. The business is mildly profitable, but the bank was bought out and the new owner wants his loan paid off. 12-31-12 is the deadline and it will not be extended. We are up to date on our payments, but that won´t wtop them from closing us down next week.

Oh well, if my grandchildren think I´m a piker for giving each of them only $100, they´ll get to ponder it further next year when they get nothing.

These tweets should give you a better understanding of the election results.

Eventually, the self-centered youth that tweeted these remarks get the right to vote.

Many of them expect (or demand high-end) hand-outs. They don´t understand or want to hear about sacrifice!

These kids could always use their own savings to get what they want. They don´t save money? Too bad. Next year, the parents should not think too hard about what to give them, and just give them a cheap gift card. Preferably for less than the amount they spent on them this year.

I feel like a cheapskate now! I bought the nephews modest iTunes gift cards with a note stating that a gift had been given in their names to the Salvation Army. I doubled what I normally give SA this year because I know they do good work and the donations don´t support wealthy administrators lavish fundraisers.

My mother (now 80) has started gifting us with her own "treasures." This year I got my baby ID bracelet from the hospital where I was born, and a beautiful garnet/opal brooch that belonged to her mother. I am grateful for cards and anything else I receive. If I can´t use it, I find a good place for it. And because my parents grew up during the depression, we always got an orange and candy cane on Christmas.

If I had a child like these I would just let him know that because he found my gift-giving skills so lacking I will no longer be insulting him with my poor attempts.
I remember being totally ´over the moon´ to find coloring books and crayons under the tree. That was my idea of heaven. What a difference from then (the 50s) to now.

None of these brats turned out this way based solely on what they got for Christmas this year.

This is the result of a lifetime of being spoiled rotten.

I doubt any of these parents are the least bit shocked. These brats have acted the same way since they were 5, and mommy and daddy have kept right on buying them the best of everything year after year.

Next Christmas, it will just happen again...

A number of women who I consider "peers" and not necessarily "friends" used to complain about the presents that their family would get them...one woman in particular would complain about how her husband never got the right size or the right color or got something different from what she told him she wanted. She then described how she was always careful to pick out thing that she ´knew´ her family would like, and then was crushed when she found out they didn´t.

I couldn´t stand her, really.

The real problem is every day is Christmas for these ungrateful kids. It´s not all about you. How many of them can even write a thank you note ?

I had to go to the shopping center a couple of times before Christmas day. It was disturbing how many broke people suddenly had money to buy mindless gifts-while they treated the store employees like servants.

I see the same clerks all year, so I hand out candy or something for them as I shop. Just something to recognize how much I appreciate them.

It´s not the dollar amount that counts. How many children would love to hear the voice of a parent killed in action ?

It´s funny. My grandkids gave us a list that included I-Pods, I-Pads and other electronic crap. We got them books, and clothes and some creative toys. Now for the funny part -- they thanked us for the really great gifts and said that they got everything they really wanted. The weird thing was that they were sincere. I would really like to freeze this Christmas because as they enter their teen years, I´m afraid they will succumb to the pressure these brats will put on them.

WASHINGTON—First lady Michelle Obama plans to meet Chicago high school students in the nation´s capital Thursday when they visit Howard University to gain exposure to college life, White House aides said. Bow Wow, a rapper, actor and co-host of BET´s "106 & Park," will join a campus tour with the first lady and the Chicago Public Schools students and moderate her round-table discussion with them, her aides said. The students, juniors and seniors, will be on the first day of a four-day visit to Howard for a program called "Escape to the Mecca." The program is designed to give talented

FORT WORTH — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis will undergo neck surgery today, her campaign said Tuesday. “After experiencing shoulder and right arm pain in recent weeks, Sen. Davis will have a routine surgical procedure to remove bone spurs and degenerative discs that are creating compression on the nerves in her neck,” campaign spokesman Zac Petkanas said in a statement Tuesday. “This is a common issue experienced by runners and endurance athletes,” he said.

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

One approaches the race fray with trepidation, but here we go, tippy-toe. The race cards have been flying so fast and furious lately, one can hardly tell the kings from the queens. Leading the weird lately has been Democratic Alabama state Rep. Alvin Holmes, who called Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina “Uncle Toms.” Holmes, who also has said that it’s fine by him if men want to marry mules and, while we’re exorcising demons, that white people are only pro-life until their daughter gets pregnant by a black man.

House Democrats, who are stepping up the pressure on Republicans to take up comprehensive immigration reform legislation, said Tuesday the Obama administration is getting ready to take executive action on the matter very soon. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson earlier this month told House Democrats he´ll take action in the next few weeks on “fixes” to immigration law, most likely dealing with deportation. “He gave us a time frame, and there are some fixes that are going to be coming sooner, which is in the next few weeks.

WASHINGTON — In wake of two mass shootings this month, Attorney General Eric Holder urged Congress Tuesday to authorize $15 million for training state and local law enforcement officers to confront so-called active shooters. "In the face of this urgent and growing threat – when the lives of innocent people are at stake – those who stand on the front lines need our full and unwavering support," Holder said in a video message posted on the Justice Department´s website.

It’s been a long time since Johnny Carson slept in the tiny upstairs room in the modest little house at 306 S. 13th St. in Norfolk. Carson was born in Iowa and moved to Norfolk with his family in the 1930s. They lived in at least one other house in Norfolk before moving into to the white, wood-frame structure on 13th Street. Built in the 1920s, the house featured a small kitchen, dining room and living room on the main floor, while the second floor contained a bathroom, several bedrooms and an enclosed porch. With concrete walls and floor, the

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
