Salvation Army has probably helped as many people in one year,without all the fanfare,as the Red Cross has,because Salvation Army works to help people from day to day,not just when a disaster happens. They're ALWAYS there to help,and I can't praise them enough. Also,they consistently give the MOST of every dollar donated to the needy of all the "national" Charities I know of. NOW- Am I the only person here that's dog-tired of having to be "politically correct"? It's not a holiday tree,it's a CHRISTMAS TREE! There-I said it! It's high time we stop letting that under 10% of the population tell us we can't celebrate CHRISTMAS just because they're too thin-skinned to be satisfied with just NOT participating. If the Muslims want to celebrate one of THEIR holidays,I don't mind a bit-I encourage them to enjoy that time. Doesn't mean I want to outlaw the event,I just won't celebrate with 'em. See-THAT wasn't so tough. Politically Correctness HAD its time-let's get over it and move on. and BTW-I believe the 10 Commandments SHOULD be displayed prominently on Government buildings;after all,the desire to openly practice our own religion WAS one of the main reasons our Country came to be,why not honor that? If it offends you,don't look at it,and I promise not to get all worked up if I see a Mosque,etc. This is the CHRISTMAS SEASON! God Bless you all-whatever your particular religion (or lack of) may be! HAPPY THANKSGIVING,AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
