The war on Christmas starts in May. Best reason for this legislation, children are confused why one tree is a christmas tree and another a holiday tree. Right, children don't give a shit, just old bastards keeping the kiddies under their god's thumb.

Summer has not even begun and children across America have barely gotten bored with last year’s Christmas presents. Yet Texas is already gearing up for the season when conservatives accuse liberals like the two people pictured above of waging a War on Christmas.
A measure labeled the “Merry Christmas bill,” which is currently awaiting Gov. Rick Perry’s (R-TX) signature, provides that public school staff may “offer traditional greetings” including “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Hanukkah” to their students, and it permits school districts to “display on school property scenes or symbols associated with traditional winter celebrations, including a menorah or a Christmas image such as a nativity scene or Christmas tree” so long as the display includes either a “secular scene” or symbols from more than one faith. The bill’s lead sponsors also put up a website promoting the bill, where they warn about a world where children ask “Daddy, why do we have a Christmas tree at home and a Holiday tree at school?”
"just old bastards"
In polite society it would read "just old farts"
You'll have to forgive this illiterate bastard. =)
Yeah! Because they just linger on like a sour fart.
Hah! I need to brush up on my politeness, though so many of my fellow countrymen do not deserve it at all.
Unreal, isn't it? I think it's part of the church and state separation issue that the supreme court is taking on.
