Where Do Turkeys Go When They're Pardoned? You'd Be Surprised.

So we come to another Thanksgiving holiday, and another President gives another "pardon" to another turkey.  (BTW, check out the daughters' reaction to the President's "Hunger Games" joke at mark 1:35.)

Obamacare Poll You'll Probably NEVER See

Here are some Obamacare poll numbers you won't hear about from mainstream media.
According to the [CNN/ORC poll] released on Wednesday, four in 10 say they support the law, with 58% opposed. Those figures are little changed from a CNN poll a month ago, just two weeks into the rough start up of and mostly before the controversy over insurance policy cancellations due primarily to the new health law.But 41% say they oppose the law because they think it's too liberal, with 14% saying the measure doesn't go far enough. That means that 54% either support Obamacare, or say it's not liberal enough.

Let's Declare a Truce in the "War on Christmas" This Year

Yes, folks.  It's that time of year again.  The time where we break out the decorations, spend ourselves into near bankruptcy, and when the extremist amongst us continue their never-ending "War on Christmas".  This is the fake culture war ginned up by FOX News every year, and exists solely in the minds of Bible-thumpers who get their Jesus-panties in a bunch when their favorite retail store puts up a sign that says "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas", and Atheists who get like Damien from "The Omen" and go into conniption fits whenever they see a Nativity display.  Sadly, those of us who would love to just get through the holidays in relative peace usually wind up in the midst of stupid nonsensical family arguments over when Jesus was born, whether Christmas is really a religious or secular holiday, and whether or not America was founded as a Christian nation.  (Newsflash, people: IT WASN'T.)  We, the vast majority of reasonably sane people in America, would like to respectfully ask that we not do this thing this year.  Just once, let's give the "War on Christmas" meme a rest.
