The Christmas Broadcast, 1957 


Her Majesty, wisdom spoken forth with every word.

"The trouble is caused by unthinking people who carelessly throw away ageless ideals as if they were old and outworn machinery"

It's that time of year, again, when we give Thanks on the last Thursday in November for everything we have, and then get up early on Friday to kill others for merchandise:

"Merry Christmas", indeed.

I've sipped the finest brandy
Smelled the sweetest perfume
I kissed the softest lips
But even they wouldn't do
I drove the Autobahn
In a Coupe de Ville
Climbed Kilimanjaro
It was just a hill

Neither do I. Smiley

I'll just go into the other room now and switch on Fox News;

6 people arguing over 'Obama'.

One woman expert:

"Polls show voters think Obama should be voted out of office"

Said in 2011 with such assurance about FOX.  Have you learned since, bambu?  As Obama won reelection in 2012?

Or are you still a religious believer in their television broadcasts no matter how many times their pollsters are proven wrong?

It's Christmas time,
It's Christmas time,
A fascist's voted in,

With Yuletide hate
and racist bait
greasy klan piggies
all round,

Andrea won't sing
at the big White House shin-ding

and neither will just about
any other
all-American star,

Because Trump's
our national shame
and who wants the blame

for what he will do
in the next year or two

I didn't vote for him,
did you?

(then coal in your stockings!)

love,

the real ... Santa

Fiona Apple - Trump’s Nuts Roasting On An Open Fire (2016) We Rock With Standing Rock Benefit

https://youtu.be/5RdGPYvQcFc

[Verse]
Trump's nuts roasting on an open fire
As he keeps nipping at his foes
You'll cry creepy uncle every time he arrives
For he keeps clawing at your clothes
Everybody knows that money and entitlement
Can help to make the season white
Mothers of color with their kids out of sight
Will find it hard to sleep at night
They know that Trump is on his way
He's got black boys in hoodies locked up on his sleigh
And every working man is going to cry
When they learn that Letch don't care how you live or if you die

[Outro]
So I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from 1 to 92
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Donald Trump, fuck you!

Trump brings up the war on Christmas — in July

The war on Christmas came early this year.

That is, according to President Trump, who devoted a large portion of his speech at a Celebrate Freedom event at the Kennedy Center on Saturday to railing against those who might try to shy away from overt references to Christianity in American discourse.

“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights. The American founders invoked our Creator four times in the Declaration of Independence,” Trump said. “Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleague at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
