    Seems that due to the gridlock caused by the GOP, and because there are several bills that need to be passed BEFORE 1 JAN, Harry Reid is now telling Congress that they're gonna have to work up to Christmas.

    So now, the "party of family values" is bitching that Reid has a thing against Christians, which is why he's slapping the face of Christians everywhere because he wants to make Congress finish what is on their plate.

    Got a question for the GOP idiots..........do our troops in Afghanistan get Christmas off? Do hospitals close for the holidays? What about police officers or firefighters?

    I've personally worked ON CHRISTMAS for most of the time I was in the Navy. Why? Someone had to man the duty office, and I was single. Besides, it meant they wouldn't bug me for New Years.

    Besides.............the 12 days of Christmas is actually Saturnalia, which is a period of merry making and drinking in celebration of the Roman deity Saturn.

    December 25th refers to the birthday of a Norse deity called Odin.

    Yeshua (Jesus) was actually born in the fall, not during the Winter Solstice.

    Harry Reid doesn't hate Christians, he wants Congress to do their jobs.

    Besides............it's a pagan holiday anyway, which is why I find it curious that good Christians would be bitching about it. The Puritans in Ma. outlawed it for a time because of that.

    All of the legislation in question was kicked until after the election, by Democrats, because it's that unpopular with Americans.

    Democrats control both houses of congress, and are legally bound to produce a budget in October (?). The rest of this shit, DADT, DREAM, has been kicking around for months thanks to Democrats who didn't want to vote for it before the election.

    Shutting down the nonessential parts of the government until the new Congress is sworn in would be the most fiscally sane thing done in two years.

    Let them work through Christmas vacation. Plenty of other people do.

    Or let non-essential government agencies shut down.

    Fine by me. In fact, we should probably just shut them down permenantly. Save a buttload of money

    The thing they really fear is that nobody would notice non-essential government agencies were shut down for two weeks.

    Other than the people who work there, no one probably would notice.

    You know..........if the military is able to work, and THEY'RE part of the government, shouldn't these idiots in Congress actually DO something?

    And if the GOP keeps blocking, I hope the fuckers work THROUGH Christmas.
