    Congressmen can't say 'Merry Christmas' in mail | Campaign 2012 | Washington Examiner

    At this point, I'd ask "are you fucking kidding me?" But why bother? I already know they're serious.

    Seriously absurd.

    No...they in gentler terms that would mean the same thing would have told the detractors to Fuck Off and Die.

    I thought we were broke? Which of our elected officials thinks we can afford postage for Christmas cards in the first place???? Where is the outrage from the Republcians demanding to know how this will be paid for??

    Maybe they'd prefer "Happy Holidays" (HolyDays)?

    Festivus mayhaps?

    You don't mean "Liberal's official hostility toward religion" you mean "official hostility toward Christianity". Liberals are very tolerant of Islam.

    Ah. A slightly different issue.

    Should we do away with most "franking" mailings in the first place?

    Ok.

    But as long as Congress-critters have a right to mail constituents at the public expense, the content of those letters should be a matter of indifference.

    That is, if the constituents don't like what they get from the Congress-critters, THEY know how to handle it.

    But to have some fucking Congressional Committee censoring the Congress-critters in that way on the basis of how they wish folks a happy holiday is just plain antithetical to what our Founders and Framers would have accepted.

    Hey nit wit, they aren't banning Christmas cards, they are saying you cannot use the greeting "Merry Christmas" in any mail.

    They should ALL be paying for it themselves. No exceptions. That is the real outrage....them spending OUR money for that.
