I love the American people. Nobody can take a series of punches to the jaw and then get up to score a knockout like they do. That is the epitome of resiliency and I am proud to admit I am one of them.
For many years now, the purveyors of political correctness, along with their buddies from the sensitivity police, have been trying to destroy Christmas even though 95% of the people in the United States celebrate the holiday. They would like to substitute greetings like "Merry Winter", "Happy Holidays", and "Season’s Greetings", for "Merry Christmas". Hopefully this year, we are seeing the beginning of the end of that practice as it appears that the multitudes have arisen and said "Enough is enough, we want Christmas!"
Some examples of this backlash are the changes in policy by some large retailers like Sears, Target, and Lowe’s, who have reinstated the word "Christmas" into their advertising. They haven’t done this just because they want to be nice guys. They did it because of some mass boycotts taking place on their stores such as Target which had a 700,000 person boycott staring at them.
