    Many of you young people will live to see the "New Place" the place your ancestors called America.
    It won't be called America anymore, the new "Diversty Government" will want a new name they won't want your children to know anything about the place that was called "America" the history books will be gone, the constitution will be gone, the names "George Washington & Abraham Lincoln" will be stricken from the records, the English Language will be banned, people will communicate with "Hand Language" similar to the greasy killer gang bangers who are now overcrowding our prisons.

    A "MAN" like Chavez or Castro will be the new leader, the wonderful new world of Diversity will consist of people from all of the wretched third worlds on our planet, most of their time will be spent fighting (each other).

    The word "Christmas" will be BANNED, should someone slip and say it, Man Women or Child they will be charged, found guilty and their Tongue will be cut out.

    The new dream world of diversity that the Looney Sappy Batty Liberal yearns for is coming quicker than you think, then, they the "Diversity Liberal" will be the first to die, the new government would never tolerate their f-cking crazy bullsh!t.

    Airport Christmas trees removed

    No menorah, no tree
    SEA-TAC Airport - All 15 Christmas trees inside the terminal at Sea-Tac have been removed in response to a complaint by a rabbi.

    A local rabbi wanted to install an 8-foot menorah and have a public lighting ceremony. He threatened to sue if the menorah wasn’t put up, and gave a two-day deadline to remove the trees.

    Israel cracks down on Christmas
    Associated Press
    November 25, 1999
    JERUSALEM -- Crucifixes and Christmas trees have been banned from Israeli hotel lobbies during the millennium holiday season because they are offensive to Jews, Israel's chief rabbi said yesterday.

    With a flood of Christian pilgrims expected during the holidays, Israel's rabbis earlier this month said Christmas
    celebrations had to be held out of sight in closed-off rooms. Crosses are "against the Jewish religion" and the sight of a
    cross or a Christmas tree "is forbidden for a Jew," chief Rabbi Israel Meir Lau told the Foreign Press Association
    yesterday.

    And hotels face further restrictions because both Christmas and New Year's fall on Friday night - the Jewish Sabbath.

    There can be no music in the hotels on Friday night, because "music, using microphones ... is a desecration of the
    Sabbath."

    The decision to keep Christmas celebrations hidden in closed rooms was a compromise reached between hotels and
    tour operators eager to draw Christian visitors and the rabbis who issue the valuable certificates ensuring that the hotels
    are kosher.

    Some rabbis have tried to stop any Christmas and New Year's celebrations in hotels that receive the kashrut certificates
    - which includes most hotels in the country.

    Under this new world order will 'poor offensive co-ordination' be an executable offense?

    Harry, this is a very honest question, do you do Hallucinatory drugs or does your warped mind just think all this **** up??

    Does this mean you're moving into the anti-Zionist camp? Because we're all out of tents...

    HarryBoy, ok, seriously, this rant against diversity needs to be battled with some common sense logic for once. Educated/intelligent liberals don't 'yearn' for diversity, they recognize that it is a fact of life. The more sources one has to draw from, the more adaptable one becomes. In genetics this produces immunity to diseases. In the workplace this produces more people who think differently when approaching a similar problem. In society it produces a more socially-conscious mindset when we all consider that others might not have come from a 2-kid, 2-car, 2-parent home. Finally, diversity simply breeds more and better competition. Without national/ethnic diversity, the NHL wouldn't be the world's best hockey league.

    Yes, 'diversity' has become a buzzword for bleeding hearts on college camp, because I know you see what I'm saying, is that you might have to uses (and it's a word I tend to shy away from using) but it's a fact of life, man. If we applied your singular vision universally we would only be able to buy one brand of bread at the supermarket. If America's economy ran on this principle, we'd never have gotten past the Model T because there would only have been one manufacturer (no diversity, hence no need for competition) and so we'd all still be puttering around at 20 mph in third gear. But diversity is what liberals 'yearn' for so we'd better scrap this idea!

    But you believe in a strong economy, right? You're a Republican who's pro-business, right? So how is diversity so bad? It's just a fact of life which we as humans can exploit to make institutions work better..

    It's comical how diversity is forced upon people who simply want to enjoy their individual freedoms, personal heritage, and civil liberties for which this country was built. God forbid people celebarate CHRISTmas, for one ignorant rabbi might sue. So forget the millions of Catholics, and succumb to the threats of one Rabbi. For cripes sakes, such "diversity" is great.

    I saw the rabbi on tv. He said he didn't want the Christmas trees taken down. He wanted was a menorah put up. If that's true, I don't understand why the issue played out the way it did.

    What about the rabbi, he just wanted to enjoy his personal heritage, right?

    Does an airport count as public space? If so then the rabbi has a fair complaint. I think that local-level governments can/should have Christmas trees and lightings until there is a complaint from elsewhere to have others included. Winter holidays are about inclusion, right? I think it's sad that Christmas has gone from commercialised to politicised...

    One thing about Hannukah inclusion, though, is that has been a very non-commercialised holiday and so it's already taken a back seat to Christmas with all of its big dumb overdone decorations. I think most practising Jews would find a giant glowing Menorah to be a bit antithetical to the spirit of the holiday (then again I would say the same about Christians and inflatable Santa Clauses)

    The best way to deal with diversity is simply to accept that many cultures have winter holidays, Christmas being one of them, and let everyone do their own thing... it's all about finding common ground, not nitpicking the differences

    Me thinks we shouldn't celebrate the 4th of July since it offends native americans and mexicans.

    I did a post on 4th of July concerning why I am not much of a believer in the American 'Revolution.' On the other hand, other nations have patron saints and/or days dedicated to the simple idea of being a part of that nationality. Anybody can celebrate anything they want on any day and certainly the government can mark the anniversary of its creation. I just wouldn't expect American Indians to like it much but they have much bigger and more legitimate gripes. (and of course they can make their own day, not to sound like an *********)

    Seriously, though, what's wrong with re-examining our own culture and making changes that make ALL willing participants happy??? I realize you can't do it all the time but culture isn't static anyway, it's dynamic and flowing and the only thing we can do is take snapshots of the way it is right now.

    You can never make everybody happy. Hate to break that to you bud.

    Well they just said on the radio that the Christmas trees are coming back. Sorry no link. They didn't say if they are just telling the Rabbi to go f himself or if they are just gonna throw up a Menorah or what. All they'd have to do is label a light pole the official 'Festivus Pole' and they've got that holiday covered.

    Super Sunday is really the only holiday I care about for this time of the year and most can't even call it that. You have to call it the big Football Championship Game or Kraft will have you sued:(

    Wonder what everyone would be saying if there was a similar message board in the last half of the 19th century, when there were waives of italian, irish and other immigrants coming to the US from harsh conditions in Europe??

    I said 'all willing participants' and anyway, you can make a gesture by trying to make everyone happy. Is that overly idealistic? probably, but all people should feel represented by their government; this is a democracy/republic after all, right???
