I’m not advocating going complete vegan (although I tried it for roughly 6 months once, and I’ve never felt better), but there has to be a better way than this. Turkeys (and all sorts of animals and critters we raise, keep and slaughter for our own consumption) are God’s creation too. God gave us dominion over all creatures, in the air, on land, and in the sea (not really, but I’m using religious references for effect), and as such they deserve ethical treatment. There’s a right way and a wrong way to handle this responsibility. Whenever possible I urge you to avoid giving your money to the industrial food complex. If you require the flesh of dead animals for nutrition and sustenance and/or celebratory purposes, the least you can do is purchase your dead animals from someone who let them have a good life (for as long as it lasted) and then killed them in a humane way.
It’s called the Holiday (read: Christmas) Season, numbnuts. Love Jesus & spend money and shit. The only way to Heaven is by being a good consumer. Your choice: Spend like your life depends on it (and it does) or eternal damnation and suffering in Hell. Jesus loves you, but not for free. It’s called capitalism. You can’t have Christmas without Christ.
This is the traditional way of felling a tree for Christmas in Norway. And they say Americans are gun crazed. That was a pretty scrawny tree, if you ask me. Yet another reason to ban xmas.
I just added a new category, “The War On Christmas”. It will be mostly a seasonal thing for use in the run-up to Christmas. I hate Christmas!
Norwegians are experiencing a butter shortage. This is big, important news; even Al Jazeera is reporting on it. Bad as this is (Norwegians love their butter), it happens at the worst possible time – right before Christmas – when butter is needed the most for traditional Christmas cookie baking. I say it’s a gift from the gods in The War On Christmas. Go Vinterblot!
Just watched Obama’s Christmas tree-lighting ceremony. We just lost a battle in the war on Christmas. While he did utter the word Holiday, the word Christmas flowed freely from his mouth, as did talk about Jesus, angels and God, and how this teaches us good morals.
So clearly the Prez is giving in to all the Jesus freaks who are upset about secularizing the “holidays” (the same people stampeding Wal-Mart on Black Friday). I guess seeing the election on the horizon has a funny effect on politicians. Seldom have I had so high hopes for someone only to be so bitterly disappointed later on.
I’m considering boycotting the whole election. Go OWS!
I support the war on Christmas. Looks like somebody already took care of it. Or maybe he’s just drunk? I suspect a sexual motive.
