Merry Christmas

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night.

An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them,

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”

When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,

“Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.

When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them.

Merry Christmas to you, my family and my friends. God Bless you.

Why Can't We Be More Like Socialist Europe? Sweden Hit By Terrorist Bombing

From The Associated Press, via

No one died except for the suspected bomber, but two explosions in Sweden's capital tore at the fabric of this tolerant and open nation - a society that hadn't seen a terrorist attack in more than three decades.

Two people were wounded in central Stockholm on Saturday in what appeared to be the first suicide bombing in the history of Sweden, which has been spared the major terrorist strikes seen in several other European countries.

A car exploded in the middle of the seasonal shopping frenzy, shooting flames and causing several smaller blasts as people ran screaming from the scene. The blast that killed the alleged bomber came moments later further a few blocks away from the car explosion on a busy pedestrian street.

Experts said the alleged bomber probably didn't succeed in detonating all the explosives and could have caused much greater damage.

While police haven't confirmed Saturday's attack was motivated by Islamist views, an audio file sent to Swedish news agency TT shortly before the blast referred to jihad, Sweden's military presence in Afghanistan and a cartoon by a Swedish artist that depicted the Prophet Muhammad as a dog, enraging the Muslim world.

It hasn't been verified that the speaker is the person who set off the explosive, but police have said they are investigating that possibility.

"Now the Islamic state has been created. We now exist here in Europe and in Sweden. We are a reality," the voice said in the file, submitted to the Associated Press by TT. "I don't want to say more about this. Our actions will speak for themselves."

Welcome to the 21st Century, Sweden. Guess you're no better than the rest of us, after all.

And hey - progs... you really think Sweden has got one up on us?

Think again.

Senate Democrat Proclaims Lame Duck Session Is "All Rigged"

In what should be lead-story, headline news if our media was doing its job, Democrat Michael Bennet proclaimed on Tuesday that the current Democrat controlled ame duck session is "rigged" near an open microphone on The Senate Floor.

“It’s all rigged. The whole conversation is rigged,” he said. “The fact that we don’t get to a discussion before the break about what we’re going to do in the lame duck. It’s just rigged.”

Bennet Chief of Staff Guy Cecil stood by the remarks.

“It’s something he’s been talking about from day one,” Cecil told the DC. “The whole process being rigged against having a real conversation about tax cuts, the estate tax and the defense authorization. We’re not having a lot of those conversations. It’s just a symptom of Washington being broken.”

According to an article posted November 30th on The Blaze, MSNBC‘s Kelly O’Donnell reached out to the Bennet camp for a comment and aid Adam Bozzi echoed the statement made by Cecil.

For almost two years, he [Bennet] has talked about needing to fix a broken Washington. We can’t move forward on major issues facing our country because of a broken system that is rigged to prevent progress. We are now in the second week of this session and haven’t begun debating Defense Authorization or tax cuts that will expire at the end of the year. Colorado and the rest of our country deserve better which is why he has proposed overhauling the way Washington works, including filibuster and lobbying reforms.

In the world of cable news, Fox News Channel opinion show host Glenn Beck tonight discussed the "Red Pill, Blue Pill" scene from The Matrix, and how be believes it relates to the current state of affairs in The United States of America.

Beck also talked about how throughout history the political left has made wonderful use of the thesaurus, and that if the progs were not so good at changing the name of their agenda we would be hearing today that China's currently re-branded version of National Socialism is being called the political and social model of the future.
