A Christmas Card to My Conservative and Progressive Friends

To My Progressive Friends:

Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011 but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that  America  is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only  America  in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.

To My Conservative Friends:

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

That's tellin' 'em!

Wonderful! Here's to recycled wrapping paper, non-alcoholic cider, and fat-free, sugar-free, tofu laden cheesecake.


Merry Christmas & happy New Year dear friend, to you and to your lovely family.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Tom.

See, I'm a progressive and I didn't need any disclaimers...

Hope your Christmas was a good one, TP. While the posting was humorous, I hope one of your conservative resolutions for the new year is to try and understand what liberals actually think and believe instead of being trapped in the caricature that you have created of us. Happy New Year, too.

T. Paine said...

Thanks Dave and to all of you good folks and friends!

Dave, I always TRY to understand liberal thought, if for no other reason than to "know my enemy", politically-speaking of course.

I don't know if you celebrate Hanukkah or not, Dave, but regardless I hope this holiday season was wonderful for you and yours.
