To start with, as far as I am aware, neither the city, the county, or the state, or the federal government has outlawed a citizen from celebrating Christmas in whatever manner they choose fit on their own property. What governments can and have done under the first amendment to the constitution is outlaw public funds being used to celebrate particular religious holidays. In other words the government may not use your tax dollars to celebrate a particular religion. For example, the government may not use your tax dollars to promote or celebrate Hindu, Jewish, Christian or any other religious holiday. This protects you from having to support, through your tax dollars, Hindu, Christian, Jewish or any other religion.
Now, how to greet people with good spirit during this holiday season.
If the person you are greeting is known to be a Christian, wish them a “Merry Christmas”. If you don’t know the person’s religion, but you still want to wish them well in this season, a generic “Happy Holiday” would be nice and appropriate.
Finally, for those who still want to present themselves as victims of a “War on Christmas”, to them I say “Happy Holidays” and a “Bah Humbug”!

The problem is that people don’t read history. All that is happening today happened in our history whether it was Nero fidling while Rome burned, or the Germans doing nothing while Hitler used propoganda against immigrants, the press, and the educated while having rallies to satisfy his own ego and terrify those who might oppose him.
Certainly at least one of our Senators or Member of the House studied history. Where are they? Who is writing their own profile in courage?

In an attempt to extend an olive branch to the Democrats in a biparisan move, President Trump wants to nominate Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court. Trump is said to have quoted himself as saying “better late than never”, a saying he just made up.
A furious Mitch McConnel has been quoted as saying that no such thing will happen in HIS Senate. He and the Republican majority has been bought and paid for by Mr. Putin, and they will not go back on their word.
Democrats are suspicious and therefore are taking no action to move the nomination forward.
FOX pundits are reviewing their scripts from Sinclair Broadcasting to determine if last minute changes have been made.
NPR is reporting that the President will be making a nomination for the Supreme Court.
Trumpsters are jubilant with the news that President Trump will be able to hold up yet another piece of paper which he has signed with his crayon/marker thereby proving that he is doing something.
WallStreet is looking to make even more money in the whipsaw climate of the Trump Administration.
Evangelicals are chanting AMEN from the pulpet and on television but declining to say what they are amening about. However, they are sure that God will forgive the President for his repeated unchristian acts. Mass burnings of the heretical WWJD posters, bracelets, pins and hats are being planed. In heaven, God hides his head in shame.
