Synchronicity! I, too, have posted some post-Christmas cheer, albeit nothing along the lines of this blog post.
Vive la difference!I think this is the first time White Christmas was sung in a movie. Do you –– or does anyone else –– know when the first recording came out? Funny how the tune became so popular! It started a trend where so-called "Christmas Songs" never contained the slightest HINT of the Birth and Presence of Jesus Christ in our lives.Can you name at least three other pointedly non-Christian Christmas songs?I'll start:Chestnuts Roasting on an Open FireSleigh bells Ring, Are You Listening?Rudolph the Red-Nosed ReindeerCarry on ...

They're rising in polls of Republicans. If you read right-wing sites, you know that a huge chunk of the Republican base is currently engulfed in a paroxysm of rage against their own party's leadership. That chunk, the most delusional and deranged subgroup of Wingnuttia, is gradually settling on Trump as the vehicle of their fever-dream fury and rebellion.Will this damn Trump snowball continue rolling down the hill picking up steam?For a while yet, yes. It may pick up enough steam that Trump wins the Republican nomination. After that -- well, you know what effect That BS will mean.
Your remark has nothing to do with the theme of this post. As such I should remove it, but it was at least free of vulgarity –– for a change.As for Mr. Trump, I have NO IDEA what will happen if he is or is not nominated or elected. You're correct in saying a very large segment of the GOP is disgusted, and completely fed up with the party's Establishment –– and rightly so. The Establishment offers no resistance or meaning opposition to the Democrats. That means they are NOT doing the job for which they were elected.Some think Mr. Trump may be working in cahoots with HRC. Other's think he's a dangerous demagogue in the making, still others think he's just enjoying gigantic ego trip. Some see him as a "Savior." Frankly I don't know WHAT to think. American politics gets more like the Twilight Zone every day.What we have had in recent years is untenable. It would be even worse if elected someone who would give us more of the same. I'm tired of treading water in the toilet hoping against hope I won't be flushed away by the demons and the lunatics who run Dee Cee.
Truth can be found in the most unlikely places, often when one least expects it.Keep your head up, your ears open, and your eyes peeled. BTW, nothing is ever as straight forward or as simple as it may appear at first glance.
