    Went to Michael's today. The clerk wished me a "Merry Christmas" as soon as I stepped up to the checkout. In case you don't have one, Michael's is an arts & crafts store.....very big here in CA.

    Nice to hear of at least one retailer with guts. I'm not shopping at Sears, Kohls, Target, Wal-Mart, Home Depot or Lowes since they don't feel they can afford to offend those who don't celebrate Christmas. I think they'll find they lose more business by doing this than they would have had they used those oh so offensive words.

    Most people will not care one way or another. Kinda like the pilots picketing.

    What they would hope to gain is beyond me.

    If you're singing Christmas songs on your neighbor's lawn at
    night with your church group, it's called "caroling."

    But if you're doing it alone with no pants on, it's called "drunk

    Olbermann: "But tonight's winner: Bill O'Reilly! You know this whole attack on Christmas nonsense that he made up? Some sort of fantasy in which the liberals are coming to your town to force you and your family to not call it Christmas anymore? The fantasy that we can't say "Merry Christmas," but you can only say "Happy Holidays"? The thing designed to stir up religious hatred and paranoia in this country? Guess what they're selling over at the Fox News online store? The Fox News "Holiday" ornament! And the O'Reilly Factor "Holiday" ornament. Who is trying to change "Merry Christmas" into "Happy Holidays"? Bill O'Reilly, that's who. Today's worst person in the world!

    Of course, you failed to mention that when you go to the Bill Oreilly site, the entire storefront is entitled in large letters.....The Oreilly Christmas Store !!

    Next time get your facts straight !!:detective

    Gee, Do you think he might have changed it since he got called on it YESTERDAY? Just like you changed your racist slur.:w00t:

    Have you got your head that far up, you cant even do some of your own legwork? Go to some of these stores. In each one last year it was merry Christmas, and the year before, and before that. So what has changed, why not this year.

    I think the fantasy as you call it is yours, and the ultra hate groups, the far left. They are always pointing out everyone else's faults and are the first to scream racism, but try and call their's to their attention.

    No fantasy here, just plain fact, straight from my lying ears.

    Well you never changed yours or even admitted being racist. So what the hell your you calling More on the carpet for?<!-- / message --><!-- sig -->

    Can you find one item at O'Reilly's store that says Christmas on it?

    You know, in trying to keep the peace around here, I did edit a former post of mine even though it was somebody else's mistake I had cut and pasted there. I regret it now.

    There's just nothing I can do to take bitterness from your life. So, I won't be trying.

    I searched the entire Bill O'reilly Christmas Store and could not even find an ornament (Holiday or Christmas or Kwanza or Chanhuka or whatever)) available in that store.

    Your comments are the most vindictive, despiteful, malicious, ornery, venomous ones I have ever run across in my life. A lot of them are get mean when someone only asks a simple question.

    Merry Christmas, Sweetie !!

    Perhaps you missed my earlier comment. I don't celebrate Xmas. After working for over twenty years every waking moment, when would I have time to shop? Even if I did, I certainly wouldn't be looking at the greetings they had on signs. Not everyone is christian, you know; and stores are in the market to sell to everyone, even heathens.

    Just what does the christmas celebration have to do with Christ anyway, besides the name? I always thought it was an extension of the Roman holiday Saturnalia, now it's just a time for merchants to try to get people to spend.:bored:

    What can I say, you bring out that part of me. Being ganged up on and responding is hardly unprovoked.

    At least what I post ain't lies, toots.

    You dishonored a distinguished USMC hero, you should be ashamed of yourself.

    PS-- you'd still be posting in plain text if I hadn't told you how to change the type, and your racial slur (OK, you only repeated it) would still be there if I hadn't told you how to correct it, I don't think I was mean when I told you how to do those things. Also I would be gone at $80 if you hadn't ticked me off, but I'll make you a deal...$90 and I'm gone, no changies:wink:

    Too late. At $80, we all ask Cheryl to ban you. A deals a deal.

    "after working for over twenty years every waking moment, when would I have time to shop?"
    Come on .....give it a rest.....I have been working there over 20 yrs and I find time to shop. If not at the store they have this new thing called the internet,........ you know the place you find all the worthless links that few read.
    I dont give a rats butt if you get banned, but since this is a Merry Christmas thread, why dont you leave it alone since you dont celebrate it????

    READ this. It may save your life or that of your mother, sister, daughter, friend.

    After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

    Safety First!!

    1 . Tip from Kenpo Karate: The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

    2. Learned this from a tourist guide in New Orleans. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you....chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.

    3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

    4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR, LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE.
    A) If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

    5 . A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
    A.) Be aware: look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor, and in the back seat.
    B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door. Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women are attempting to get into their cars.
    C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out.

    IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (Better paranoid than dead.)

    6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. (Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

    7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; And even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably! in a zig -zag pattern!

    8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP. It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked "for help" into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

    ************* Here it is *******
    9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird. The police told her "Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door."

    The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, "We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door." He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

    Please pass this on and DO NOT open the door for a crying baby
    ----This e-mail should probably be taken seriously because the Crying Baby theory was mentioned on America's Most Wanted this past Saturday when they profiled the serial killer in Louisiana.

    Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the world we live in has a lot of crazies in it and it's better to be safe than sorry.

    More, that was an excellent post. I have been worried about my daughter leaving work at night (17, first job). I will copy and send that to her.

    All good advice, moreluck; but the baby crying thing is an urban myth:

    As UPS drivers (most of us), we have been trained to be aware of our surroundings, we should carry it into our daily routines as well. This is the time of year for scams and robbery, as well as good will towards men, I'm afraid.

    Peace to all.
