    New York's Suffolk County sacks Santa to save $660 | News | National Post

    NEW YORK — Faced with the difficult task of balancing a budget in austere times, officials in New York’s Suffolk County said on Friday they had no choice: they had to sack Santa Claus.

    The county executive said he could not justify carving out $660 from his US$2.7-billion budget to pay David McKell, 83, a World War II veteran and former homicide detective, to don his Santa suit for the tenth year running and greet children on Long Island.

    Seems reasonable. They are just cost-cutting.

    FDR started the avalanche, Democrat ideas gave it impetus.

    No they didn't. It was a concerted, collaborative effort between both parties to ruin this country.
