If you missed the Straight No Chaser guys the first time around, here they are, taking another rather annoying Christmas song and doing fun things! They have made a regular career out of themselves. Really, you’ll enjoy this if you haven’t seen it.
And I can even give everyone a fun thing to do with the family this Christmas…something I made up one Christmas for my own audiences:
You pick twelve people out of the crowd (in your case family) and each one gets a day. And they can say WHATEVER they want to make up. Everyone sings the “On the lst day of Christmas my true love gave to me…..and then the person who has ONE jumps up and says….whatever comes to his mind.
“Nine janitors trashing, eight kitties barking, seven Biden’s barfing, six men a drinking, FIVE Golden Banana Cakes! “
You get the idea. Just don’t give them too much time to think about it, so they have to STAND up and shout out when it first comes their turn, and it always helps if you do it after everyone has had a few glasses of wine to get them warmed up.
But I give you fair warning…you might hear things you never thought were possible, most of them having to do with sex.
Of course, if there are kids there, you must simply be silly, and by all means, let them join in.
I have urgent news…this could perhaps be as important as the questions concerning Obamacare. It seems, Nobody Knows what the real Santa Claus looks like! Megyn Kelly started this. She insists Santa is white. This is racist isn’t it? Sure it is! …but before you get upset about this important subject, I think it’s time we all took a vote, Nobody Suggests that to end this debate, everyone just pick a Santa he or she likes the best, and write to him. After all, it’s Christmas. If you don’t get your present, pick a different one next year. Sooner or later, you’ll get your present. (Hint: If you are black, you must choose carefully.)
I have until the 18th of December to try out a few of WordPress’s templates. Now, this is important: If any of the new ones are not as well liked as this format (which some have called ‘cold’ I’m not really sure why) tell me. Also, tell me if you prefer some of the other ones. Don’t worry…there won’t be many and after the 18th I will be back on this, if not before.
As for the video: I bet the WestJet executive that thought this promotional PR Santa stunt up got a big bonus this year. It was brilliant. It’s called WestJet Christmas Miracle.

Ever since last week’s “Little Drummer Boy” I’ve really been getting in the Christmas spirit….and this video will do it quite nicely.
Here’s another fun one sent in an email from Kim Komando. The house…is really something. And I didn’t even notice the gnomes…did you?
I don’t think I’ve EVER seen Wild Bill so mad. The American People have always given generously of their time and money, and they send it to all corners of the earth.
Hear Bill tell you why the liberals are keeping Christmas gifts from reaching poor kids. It’s pathetic.
Bill wins my Nobody’s Fool award for the week…again.
The Little Drummer Boy has never been one of my favorite Christmas songs…due to the fact that besides the words, the melody is very boring.
BUT…look at what great hearts and imagination can do to this: They beautifully transformed it into the wonders of the human soul. (not to mention, great special audio effects)
It’s Christmas Eve, and this is not the day to talk about politics, it’s a day to tell the ones we love, just HOW much they mean to us…to go to a church, even if you usually don’t, and to think of Jesus, and his teachings…whether you think he was the son of God or not.
I’m taking today and tomorrow off…Of COURSE! Like everyone…I can’t wait to spend time with my little family.
You know, I think God wanted me to post this little poem: I am in the process of doing an inventory of all my books, and I came upon this poem just by sheer accident today. It made me think of all the babies that have died before their time, (like the ones in Newtown, and my dear friend Doug Powers who lost his own dear angel so long ago) and all the parent’s who love their children, how their love never dies.
It also is a great example for men…Jesus picks up the child and puts them on his lap. As amfortas has told us, nowadays a man, who is not the father of a young child, would probably be ostracized harshly for putting a child on his lap, unless he was pretending to be Santa Claus.
But the main reason I love this poem, is it shows the REAL point of Christ: The mother took her “heavy heart” and it was lifted. And so, this is the true miracle of faith. If you have faith in a power higher than yourself, life, and it’s hardships, are much easier to bear. Really, it’s a no-brainer.
So, Nobody Says—May You all have a Merry Christmas! God bless us all…and Tiny Tim too!
Christ and the Little Ones
“The Master has come over Jordan.” Said Hannah the mother one day:
“He is healing the people who throng Him, with a touch of His finger they say.
“And now I shall carry the children, Little Rachel and Samuel and John,
I shall carry the baby Esther, For the Lord to look upon.”
The father looked at her kindly, but he shook his head and smiled:
“Now who but a doting mother would think of a thing so wild?”
“If the children were tortured by demons, or dying of fever, ’twere well:
Or had they the taint of the leper, like many in Israel.”
“Nay, do not hinder me, Nathan, I feel such a burden of care; If I carry it to the Master,
Perhaps I shall leave it there.
“If He lay His hand on the children, my heart will be lighter, I know.
For a blessing for ever and ever, will follow them as they go.”
So over the hills of Judah, Along by the vine rows green,
With Esther asleep on on her bosom, and Rachel her brothers between:
‘Mid the people who hung on HIs teaching, or waited His touch and His word,
Through the row of proud Pharisees listening she pressed to the feet of the Lord.
“Now why shouldst thou hinder the Master,” Said Peter, “with children like these?”
Seest not how from morning to evening He teacheth and healeth disease?”
Then Christ said “Forbid not the children, permit them to come unto me!”
And HE took in HIs arms little Esther, and Rachel He sat on His knee:
And the heavy heart of the mother was lifted all earth care above,
as HE laid His hand on the brothers, and blest them with holiest love.
As He said of the babes in His bosom, “Of such are the Kingdom of Heaven”–
And strength for all duty, and trial that hour to her spirit was given.

I got this video from my liberal friend, who I met at my local library about five years ago. We both were taking a class in EXCEL, and became fast friends because, when it came to computers, we both we in wonderment…like little kids.
We STILL hold that same childlike attitude about many things. Anyway, when he sent me this video he said, “How do they think up these things?”
That’s my bud. JR is in his 70’s, and yet, still holds his love of learning, and that’s one of the reasons we get along. While our politics are completely opposite, neither one of us has ever gotten mad at our opinions.
Hatred, gets you…nowhere.

I got this as an email Christmas card…and if you haven’t seen it, it might just cheer up your day! It did mine.

Going shopping? I wish I’d been at THIS mall to hear THIS flash mob. These people not only have fantastic voices, you can tell by the looks on their faces that they are filled with God’s grace…just look at those faces.
This one got me very misty eyed…
ENJOY! (And thank amfortas)
Why would anyone put up 58 Christmas trees in the White House, and then…go to Hawaii and not even look at them? Is this a record for Christmas trees in the White House? And is that the biggest gingerbread house ever made?
While the country is about to be forced into a major depression, Obama and Mochelle seem to think nothing of spending another $4 billion on a three-week vacation (at our expense) in Hawaii…and that’s not counting the REAL cost. So…tell me—Why do they need 54 Christmas trees at the White House? Oh wait, they are called “Holiday” trees…right.
Oh..and just to make us all feel good about the fact that they ACT LIKE KINGS! They have announced that this year’s theme is JOY TO US! I mean…’Joy to All’
This year's theme is Joy to All.
(Translation: Have fun now folks, because in a few months, the joy will be gone.)
It celebrates the many joys of the holiday seasons, the joy of giving and service to others, the joy of sharing our blessings with one another and of course, the joy of welcoming our friends and families as guests into our homes over these next several weeks.
(“Service to others? Gee…how about doing us all a big service and don’t tax us to death. Nobody’s sure, as soon as you get back from Hawaii, those 58 “holiday” trees will be chump change compared to the elaborate parties you are going to throw for your second inauguration. You want us to hate the rich? Well, you’re helping that theme right along.)
We've also continued the tradition of decorating trees throughout the House. We have 54 trees in the White House. 54! That's a lot of trees.
(Wow..Michelle…can count. Who knew? Let’s all send copies of our household expenses to Michelle….and ask her to count it all up. Maybe she can learn how to balance a budget, now that she can actually count. )
We have found some wonderful ways to pay tribute to your service and sacrifice as an important part of ourholiday decorating
efforts here at the White House. And it starts, as you all have seen, the minute visitors walk through the White House for their tours, the first thing they see, the very first tree they see, honors our men and women inuniform
for the extraordinary sacrifice they and their families have made. And thanks to several of you here today, I know that this tree is now decorated with special gold star ornaments bearing the names of some of America's greatest heroes, those who gave their lives for our country.
(Service and sacrifice–translation: You WILL sacrifice everything, because we are going to take it from you. )
We are also honoring our military families with some very special decorations on the official White HouseChristmas tree
that's in the Blue Room. That's the biggest tree in the house. It's huge, stands close to 19 feet tall, it is one of my favorite trees. This very special "Joining Forces" tree is covered with hand-decorated ornaments made by military children living in U.S. bases around the world.
(Oh…give the BIG tree to the vets because THEY didn’t get to vote. How generous of you. Many of the ones losing their jobs and benefits can now go and see their “joining forces” tree and feel better. Good thing you won’t be there.–smart. )
And of course, keeping with past holiday traditions, we have our annual White House Gingerbread House. Yeah, have you guys seen that yet? A White House holiday staple since the 1960s, this year's house weighs nearly 300 pounds so it's a pretty big house, and its walls are made to resemble granite, so he did some kind of technique to make it look like real granite. And it even includes chandeliers that light up. It glows.
(Come on Michelle,…put 58 Christmas trees in that GINGERBREAD House, and really make it glow. Wait…those are “holiday trees.” A gingerbread house that looks like concrete? Wow–very fitting. I would like to shake the hand of the artist.)
So..if you are wondering why anyone who had the privileged of spending Christmas at the White House with 58 beautiful trees..why in the world, would they want to leave?
Because.—-.as Obama once so very gallantly said: You can put red lipstick on a pig…but it’s…still a pig.
Do you honestly think a Muslim wants to spend Christmas anywhere?

Sorry. I have been in the land of Hallmark’s Christmas, “Santa makes all your dreams come true” marathon all day yesterday. My husband had a nasty cold, so we watched 4 Hallmark movies in a row— in bed. In fact, we only stopped between movies to eat, and then jumped right back under the covers again. What’s endearing about my husband is that he keeps the Kleenex box on his side of the bed, and I have always wondered how in the world he knows when to hand me one. He just does. He doesn’t even look at me, he just reaches over, grabs one, and hands it to me at the perfect moment: You know, at the big ending where everyone that was fighting makes up, and Santa Clause finds his way home, and the orphan kids get a meal, and they find the lost puppy, and well…these movies are all about family, love, and doing what’s right. There are not too many “gay” love stories in them…yet. Most of the Hallmark Movies are in the traditional Christmas spirit.
And darn it…Where else can you get that kind of entertainment anymore? In the last ten years, Hollywood has been promoting its social messages in every sitcom, movie, and song. They’ve been cramming them down our throats. In other words, we are being socially engineered by some of the most brilliant minds on the planet, to accept all their future goals for the masses.
And now, “Professor” Arnold Schwarzenegger has been put in charge of a special school, where these new propaganda artists will be trained to …as he puts it, “educate” the masses. Film, art, and government will become one entity, much as in old Germany. An institute to train future artists to continue…globalization.
He held a panel at the school on C-Span today, which consisted of Ron Meyer, President of Universal Studios, Brain Grazer of Imagine Entertainment (Apollo 13) Rob Friedman, Co-Chairman of Lionsgate, and Jimmy Iovine, record producer of Bruce Springsteen among others.
Arnold said very bluntly that his institute was there to bring students and world leaders together to “educate, inform, and change attitudes.”
And these men were obviously proud of the social issues they had educated us on. They were all very proud of Brokeback Mountain for instance. What was very clear is how seriously these men took what they perceived to the social issues of the day. EVERYONE in America needed to be trained, educated, and taught how to think and act…and they knew how to get that message across.
The issues? Name every liberal issue you can think of…we’re going to see more of it: climate change, global warming, women empowerment, end of life issues (euthanasia) eating healthy, immigration, race, etc….
Yes, right there in Southern California, Arnold’s propaganda ministry will be training future propagandists for the global government.
Just look at who’s on the board: This is from Arnold’s website—
The new institute’s bipartisan Board of Advisors includes international leaders in business, public service and education. Initial members include Henry Cisneros, who as San Antonio’s mayor became the first Hispanic-American mayor of a major U.S. city and was appointed by President Bill Clinton as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Vicente Fox, who served as president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006; Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, chair of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; George Shultz, economist and statesman who served as U.S. Secretary of State from 1982 to 1989; Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann; and Kandeh K. Yumkella, director-general of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization.
Guiding principles include: science and evidence must play an important role when finding solutions to policy and social issues; local solutions are often the best means to solve global problems; and future leaders, including students and young people, must help shape the solutions for our future
The USC Price School of Public Policy, established in 1929, is one of the premier schools of its kind in the nation. Through a time-honored commitment to public service, a legacy of strong connections to professional leaders and a world-renowned research portfolio, the school’s faculty, students and alumni work to improve the quality of life for people and their communities worldwide. The USC Price School of Public Policy is at the forefront of research and teaching on today’s major issues, including: housing and real estate markets, environmental sustainability, health care, economic development, transportation and infrastructure, governance and leadership, nonprofits and philanthropy, civic engagement, immigration and the impact of terrorism
And Arnold may be a registered Republican, but like New York Mayor Bloomberg, there’s not a thing conservative about the man.
On September 27, 2006 Schwarzenegger signed a bill creating the nation’s first cap on greenhouse gas emissions. He left California with a record high deficit, and worked with the Chinese Government to build a bridge there.
The politicians and Hollywood are practically united. This instituted will seal the final deal…and Nobody is more afraid than me, that these old Hallmark Christmas movies will someday stop, because they offend our Muslims citizens.
I did notice they are keeping a lot of the old Christmas songs out of them….even this year.
So…Arnold has a new job. He is now the New American Goebbels. His father, would be proud.
Nobody Thinks I’m going to miss those old Hallmark Christmas moves…someday. Where else can you find so many happy endings? With all these morons taking control of our lives and taking away our religion, our free speech, our jobs, our dreams and Christmas wishes….happy endings are getting harder to come by…
Pass the Kleenex.
I’m sorry I missed today’s post..I was making a holiday music video of myself singing Christmas songs to send out to friends..and as usual, had technical difficulties. My one synthesizer wouldn’t “talk” to my other synthesizer, and then, my candle kept getting wax on my keyboard, (I know, I get into the establishing the”mood”) …not to mention, I had to put a palm tree in the backgroud…aaaaaaaaaaaah..you had to have been there.
Works of art take great time. (LOL!) And NO, I’m not going to post it. By the time I finished editing, cutting, doing take after take..it was midnight. There you, so I’m posting this Christmas video because it reminds me of John Lennon.
Why am I thinking of John Lennon? Today, my American Eskimo, somehow jumped up on the couch and grabbed my Beatles Doll Collection (worth $400.) and ran. She took John, and chewed his guitar off. She did this because, just like a kid, I wasn’t paying attention to her…so I didn’t see it till it was too late. (She’s Zippy, the white one on the right.)
Oh well. It’s NOT like I was going to sell them. That would be…unthinkable.
Anyway, the next two days, we are ALL going to be with our families. And have you noticed? The cable networks are FILLED with Christmas movies! It’s great..I watched Albert Finney’s Scrooge tonight and it was a musical. It was the first time I ever saw it and I was singing…(Thank you very much) while walking my dogs around the block afterwards. For those of you that have seen that movie, you know the song. Alec Guinness was the BEST Marley I’ve ever seen, and Albert did a great job. It’s worth watching if you’ve never seen it.
(If you can find these classics on TV, you can usually find them cheap, online.
Despite the economy, I don’t think I’ve ever seen such Christmas spirit around my neighborhood…how bout you? Let’s hope it lingers.
…MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYONE!
And I’ll see you on Monday!
