Topless Feminist Interrupts Christmas Mass In Pro-Abortion Protest [NSFW]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” The “FEMEN” Twitter account celebrated the interruption of Christmas mass in Cologne, Germany, by a topless feminist extremist, who wrote “I AM GOD” on her body and climbed atop the altar before shocked worshipers.”

 

Soopermexican says it all :

 

” Ok then. I doubt these kind of offensive displays actually advance their cause, but they definitely annoy and anger believers.”

Shipping Overload Leaves Many Christmas Giftless

 


” An unexpected surge of online orders in the past few weeks appears to have strained the limits of delivery and fulfillment infrastructure at retailers and parcel carriers. While instances of bad weather, Web glitches and late deliveries from manufacturers also played a part, the sheer volume may have been the problem, according to retail analysts.

  United Parcel Service Inc. determined late Tuesday that it wouldn’t be able to get some goods to customers in time for Christmas, as a spike in last-minute shopping demand overwhelmed its system.

” The volume of air packages in the UPS system did exceed capacity as demand was much greater than our forecast,” spokeswoman Susan Rosenberg said in response to questions. UPS delivers around 45% of U.S. packages and saw more shipments enter its air network on Monday than the 7.75 million it expected.”

Tis The Season! Politician’s Share Their Seasonal Cheer With Cheesy Christmas Photos But Where’s The Obama’s Official Portrait?

 

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi sent a seasonal note to her supporters this year plus this photo that was taken at a family gathering to celebrate her 50th wedding anniversary

 

” Nothing says Christmas like sending a cheesy family photo to your relatives to show how much everyone has grown.

  Never one to miss a trick, the nation’s politicians have jumped on the bandwagon and are using social media to send their messages of seasonal cheer along with some frankly ridiculous photos of their growing broods.

  This Christmas has seen some impressively awful examples of these cheery seasonal photos with the Romneys and the Pelosis seemingly competing to see who can fit the most relatives into a photo.”

” Take a look at this bowhunter’s humorous Christmas lights: Pataskala, Ohio resident Matt Stuller’s Christmas lights display is popular among residents. In creating the display, Stuller said he wanted to combine his love of Christmas and hunting by adding a touch of humor. “It’s for the hunter that can appreciate a little humor,” said Stuller in a Coshocton Tribune article. “People drive by and come back and even take pictures.” “

What is Christmas without the Christmas feast? In this much requested column from The Sunday Telegraph, Mark profiles the big bird:

 

 

 

 

” As Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s classic “Turkey Lurkey Time” puts it:

  Let us make a wish and may all our wishes come true
A snowy blowy Christmas
A mistletoey Christmas
A Turkey Lurkey Christmas to you…

  But in the British Christmas there’s not much snow outside of Richard Curtis movies, and in these days of sexual harassment suits and orientational diversity the mistletoe is an imperilled tradition. So that leaves the turkey, which doesn’t so much lurk as squat over the Brit Christmas, its poultry penumbra casting a pall over the season. As Bacharach and David urge:

  Ev’rybody gather round the table
Eat all the turkey you are able…

  Easier said than done. From my side of the Atlantic, where Christmas is a one-day holiday called “Christmas Day”, the interminable two-week British Christmas seems to have been fixed by some EU health agency as the safest minimum time in which to polish off the big bootiful British butterball, as the vast carcass slowly shrivels from Christmas Day through Boxing Day, Christmas Bank Holiday Tuesday, Hogmanay, the first Hogmonday after Hogtuesday, until the last relatives leave and you can put your feet up and enjoy a nice decaf turkey latte.

Indeed, one cannot help noticing that the traditional Christmas delicacy seems to have fused with Britain’s vaguely parodic approach to the holiday season. “Turkey” means a large North American gallinaceous bird but also, in American showbusiness vernacular, a flop. Yet these days the latter usage is far more prevalent in Britain. The last time I spent the holiday season in the auld sod I motored down from London to the country on Christmas Eve and, instead of jingly versions of “I’ll Be Home For Christmas” and “Winter Wonderland”, every single radio station from Thames Valley Supergold to Clwyd FM had some sour disc-jockey counting down “Your All-Time Worst Christmas Turkeys”. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Christmas In The Confederate White House

 

 

 

 

” The wife of Confederate President Jefferson Davis wrote this article describing how the Davis family spent the Christmas of 1864 in the Confederate White House. It was published in The New York World, December 13, 1896 and has since been reprinted often. This excerpt was obtained via the website “The American Civil War, 1861-1865.”  The article can be seen on the following website. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“My One-Item Christmas List: A Government That Stops Playing Santa”

 

 

 

” I’ve got a new column up at Time’s Ideas section. Here’s the opening:

  Forget a new car, Beats by Dre, or even affordable health care. You know what I really, really, really want for Christmas?

  I want a government that spends less money. I’m not alone in such a wish. Even President Obama, who has asked for more and more spending in each of his annual budget proposals, has called the nation’s long-term spending patterns “unsustainable.” “

VA Hospital Refuses To Accept ‘Merry Christmas’ Cards

 

VA Rejects Christmas Cards

Click Picture For Video

 

 

” Boys and girls at Grace Academy in Prosper, Tex., spent most of last Friday making homemade Christmas cards for bedridden veterans at the VA hospital in Dallas.

  Fourth-grader Gracie Brown was especially proud of her card, hoping it would “make their day because their family might live far away, and they might not have somebody to celebrate Christmas with.”

“ I’d like them to know they’ve not been forgotten and somebody wanted to say thank you,” Gracie told MyFoxDFW.com .

  Gracie’s card read, “Merry Christmas. Thank you for your service.” It also included an American flag.

  But the bedridden veterans at the VA hospital will never get to see Gracie’s card. Nor will they see the cards made by 51 other students. That’s because the Christmas cards violated VA policy.”

The Atheist Christmas Billboard

” An electronic billboard advertisement by American Atheists in New York City, that seeks to deter people from including Christ in their Christmas celebrations, has been getting a lot press lately. We wanted to know what New Yorkers thought of the ad.

  MRCTV traveled to the Big Apple to ask people about the atheists anti-Christian message and whether they thought we should take the “Christ” out of Christmas.”

This Dad Filmed 25 Years Of Christmas Mornings For 1 Amazing Family Video

 

” In 1985, these kids’ dad filmed them running down the stairs to greet their presents on Christmas morning. The next year, he filmed them again—and the year after that, and the year after that, for 25 years, when the kids were fully grown adults, pushing 30 years old.

  It’s the same routine: The siblings go one at a time, hopping or scooting on their butts down the steps. They’re alternately shy, then silly, then self-conscious. In their teens, they look annoyed, but as they get older, the annual video becomes more than just a sappy dad joke.”

Man Jumps To His Death After Girlfriend Insists On Buying More Shoes

 

 

 

 

 

 

” An eyewitness said: “He told her she already had enough shoes, more shoes that she could wear in a lifetime, and it was pointless buying any more. She started shouting at him, accusing him of being a skinflint, and of spoiling Christmas. It was a really heated argument.”

  The shouting match ended when the man chucked the bags on the floor and jumped over the balcony. He smashed into Christmas decorations on his way down before hitting the floor seven stories below.”

Christmas Lights Display Ordered Removed In O.C. Neighborhood

 

Christmas lights Cali

 

” Residents of a neighborhood in Trabuco Canyon are vowing to fight an official order instructing them to remove an interlocking display of Christmas lights that have been hung from house to house.

  Some 15-20 homeowners in Wagon Wheel each reportedly received a letter from Orange County Public Works stating that the lights, which are anchored on multiple houses and suspended overhead, are an obstruction and a violation of the county code .”

 

 The further from the people the power grows the more arbitrary and unresponsive it becomes . While most attention these days focuses , deservedly ,on the Leviathan that is the Federal government , this story serves as a reminder that even on the county level the lawmaking and regulating has gotten way beyond the needs of the people said laws are designed to protect . 

   In searching the Orange County code , admittedly not an exhaustive search the only references to electrical/obstruction codes we could uncover are mentioned below and do not demonstrate to us where Wagon Wheel’s Christmas decorations have created a problem .

 

   Under the category of roadway obstruction there is nothing about overhead electrical wiring . As you can see all the ordinances regarding roadway obstruction regard surface contamination of one sort or another and not a word about air above the streets.

 

” ARTICLE 2. OBSTRUCTIONSpermanent link to this piece of content

Sec. 6-1-56. Clay or mud debris.

Sec. 6-1-57. Oil and petroleum.

Sec. 6-1-58. Water.

Secs. 6-1-59—6-1-68. Reserved.

 

Sec. 6-1-56. Clay or mud debris.permanent link to this piece of content

(a)

Unlawful to create hazard on highway. It shall be unlawful for any person to place, track or otherwise deposit clay or mud debris of any sort in any manner on the paved or traveled surface of any County road, public highway or street, which creates a hazard to traffic thereon.

(b)

Removal of clay or mud debris. The Road Commissioner has the right to remove the clay or mud debris, and thereupon submit a statement of the cost of such removal to such person, his employer, employee or agent, and said person, employer, employee or agent shall pay such cost to the County.

(c)

Action to recover cost. The County may bring an action against said person, his employer, employee or agent, to recover the cost of such removal by the Road Commissioner and for costs of suit.

(d)

Injunction. The County may bring an action to enjoin any continued such placing, tracking or otherwise depositing by such a person, his employer, employee or agent, and for costs of suit.

(Code 1961, § 61.021)

Sec. 6-1-57. Oil and petroleum.permanent link to this piece of content

It shall be unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to place, put, turn or deposit into or upon any public highway, street or alley within the County of Orange, State of California, any oil or liquid of petroleum content, or to permit any such oil or liquid of petroleum content to escape from any property, owned or controlled by such person, firm or corporation, so as to flow into or upon any such public highway, street or alley.

(Code 1961, § 61.022)

Sec. 6-1-58. Water.permanent link to this piece of content

It shall be and is hereby declared unlawful for any person, firm or corporation to run, or to allow to run, upon any highway or right-of-way thereof, any irrigation, waste or other water, provided that such water may be allowed to run upon or in any drain ditch along the side of such highway or right-of-way thereof if the same does not fill or overflow such ditch or run upon or percolate under the base of the paved or traveled portion of such highway.

(Code 1961, § 61.023)

Secs. 6-1-59—6-1-68. Reserved.”

 

   These are the electrical sections of the code that we found that could conceivably be where the alleged violations are written but again we find no prohibition of overhead lighting .

 

Sec. 3-13-7. Standards for developed property.

6) Lighting. All exterior light fixtures shall be maintained in good working order free of broken lamps, lenses, and light bulbs. Furthermore, the structural integrity of all supporting poles and mounting fixtures shall be maintained. All insulation and connections shall be intact and free of exposed wire.”

 

 

Section 7-2-9. Section 90-16 added.

 

” Required Permits. No electrical equipment shall be installed nor electrical work performed within or on any building, structure or premises, publicly or privately owned, in the unincorporated area of Orange County, nor shall any alteration or addition be made in any such existing equipment without securing a permit therefor, before such work is commenced, from the Building Official except as provided in this Article and except that no permit will be required to execute any of the following classes of electrical work:

(1)

Minor repair work, such as the replacement of lamps and connection of portable electrical equipment to suitable permanently installed receptacles.

(2)

Repair or replacement of fixed motors, transformers or fixed approved appliances of the same type and rating in the same location.

(3)

Temporary decorative lighting.

 

(Ord. No. 11-004, § 2, 1-25-11)

   We are lead to speculate that this section of the County Electrical Code may be the culprit … a rather vague , catch-all type of weasel wording that seems to be at the heart of our Statist erosion of our basic rights ” In the name of public safety” .

” Sec. 7-2-8. Section 90-15 added.permanent link to this piece of content

Section 90-15. Unsafe electrical systems or equipment.

  Electrical systems or equipment regulated by this Code which are unsafe, or which constitute a fire hazard, or are otherwise dangerous to human life are, for the purpose of this section, unsafe. Use of electrical systems or equipment regulated by this Code constituting a hazard to safety, health or public welfare by reason of inadequate maintenance, dilapidation, obsolescence, fire hazard, disaster damage or abandonment is, for the purpose of this section, an unsafe use.

  Unsafe electrical systems or equipment are hereby declared to be public nuisances and shall be abated by repair, rehabilitation, demolition or removal in accordance with the procedures set forth in Section 7-1-16-UNSAFE BUILDING, NUISANCE, and NOTICE. ADMINISTRATIVE HEARING, APPEAL – of the Orange County Codified Ordinances. As an alternative, the Building Official or other employee or official of this jurisdiction as designated by the governing body may institute other appropriate action to prevent, restrain, correct or abate the violation.”

    As the code so succinctly states “Electrical systems or equipment regulated by this Code which are unsafe … are unsafe.” , but nowhere is any definition of what exactly constitutes “unsafe” or “public hazard” provided . The concept of “trust us” as the attitude from the State that should be swallowed unquestioningly by the taxpaying public is a notion that has lived on well past it’s expiration date . 

The time has come for people to start questioning EVERYTHING that the State proscribes . We have been complacent too long and as we’ve slept the authorities have incrementally conditioned us to accept ever more intrusion into our daily lives to the point where it is now a crime to decide what is best for your own neighborhood Christmas display .

 It is wise to remember that the State will never relinquish ANY power that it maintains is it’s right of it’s own volition . NEVER , EVER . A wiser man than us once said :

 

“No government ever voluntarily reduces itself in size. So, governments’ programs, once launched, never disappear. Actually, a government bureau is the nearest thing to eternal life we’ll ever see on this earth.”

 

 

   President Reagan spoke of “programs” in that particular quote but it matters not , laws once created , have the same eternal life as government programs .

‘NAUGHTY OR NICE’: 5 COMPANIES THAT HAVE BEEN LABELED PRO-CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR

 

 

Naughty or Nice: American Family Association Labels Pro Christmas Companies

 

 

” Along with joy and thanksgiving, the Christmas season can bring along intense debate over which companies and brands are “naughty” — and which are “nice.” In conservative circles, this generally centers on whether retailers and businesses are willing to acknowledge ”Christmas” without using more general phraseology like “Happy Holidays,” or even avoiding Christmas festivities altogether.

The American Family Association, a Christian nonprofit, releases a list each year of the “top retailers and how they recognize Christmas.”

Five outside companies this year earned a “five-star” blue designation, finding themselves on the nice list are:

1. Sears
2. Belk
3. Hobby Lobby
4. Walmart
5. Lowes

There’s apparently a calculated method the American Family Association uses to determine where these companies fall. According to The Christian Post, the designations are based on four areas of advertising: broadcast media, print media, company websites and visits to stores. If the word “Christmas” doesn’t make it into these ads, the American Family Association assumes Christmas censorship.”

    With the holiday season fast approaching we thought this list of Christmas-friendly stores would be a welcome companion to our readers .  We are sick and tired of the PC , generic, “inclusive”  “happy holidays” greeting becoming ever more popular thanks to progressive speech police and we are happy to see that many of our favorite retailers are Christmas friendly .
