    SANTA CLAUS: the fatal scourge of Liberals

    Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except they see. They think that nothing can be which is not comprehensible by their little minds. All minds, Virginia, whether they be men's or children's, are little. In this great universe of ours, man is a mere insect, an ant, in his intellect as compared with the boundless world about him, as measured by the intelligence capable of grasping the whole of truth and knowledge. Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist, and you know that they abound and give to your life its highest beauty and joy. Alas! how dreary would be the world if there were no Santa Claus! It would be as dreary as if there were no Virginias. There would be no childlike faith then, no poetry, no romance to make tolerable this existence. We should have no enjoyment, except in sense and sight. The external light with which childhood fills the world would be extinguished. Not believe in Santa Claus! You might as well not believe in fairies. You might get your papa to hire men to watch in all the chimneys on Christmas Eve to catch Santa Claus, but even if you did not see Santa Claus coming down, what would that prove? Nobody sees Santa Claus, but that is no sign that there is no Santa Claus. The most real things in the world are those that neither children nor men can see. Did you ever see fairies dancing on the lawn? Of course not, but that's no proof that they are not there. Nobody can conceive or imagine all the wonders there are unseen and unseeable in the world. You tear apart the baby's rattle and see what makes the noise inside, but there is a veil covering the unseen world which not the strongest man, nor even the united strength of all the strongest men that ever lived could tear apart. Only faith, poetry, love, romance, can push aside that curtain and view and picture the supernal beauty and glory beyond. Is it all real? Ah, Virginia, in all this world there is nothing else real and abiding. No Santa Claus! Thank God! He lives and lives forever. A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay 10 times 10,000 years from now, he will continue to make glad the heart of childhood. I do not have the patience or desire to debate the validity of the santa clause myth. I don't believe in the myth but that does not mean that my kids know that. For the sake of fun and being festive, we do all sorts of Santa-related stuff.

    yeah, the OP is a bit of a drama queen. I have known of one family where they told the kids at an early age that Santa Claus was a myth. One...not 20 or 30.

    Pearl Harbor Address: VICTORY OVER LIBERALS

    What would do the OP if he could not ramble on about how he hates Liberals?

    Agreed. Something's should be immune to politicizing and knitpicking.

    What are you listening to now

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tIkGohO_-QE Listening to a steady diet of Sonic Youth today.
  7. its not quite the same as what is produced here and not nearly in the same quantities. Apples to oranges.
  8. Still 45 minutes to go. Have a good weekend.
  9. The topic is not Obama. BTW, there is no cottage cheese industry in Kazakhstan and never has been.
  10. Its irrelevant to the topic at hand. may as well be talking about the price of cottage cheese in Kazakhstan.
  11. Their wealth is unimportant. He is good for their business whether they make $4 per year or $4 million.
  12. Trump also helps late night TV. The Daily Show, Colbert, Seth Myers, James Corden, etc. do not have to look far for material to poke fun at.

    WOW... Do you THINK Donald Trump is reading my posts?

    There is no way of knowing for sure but my bet is that Trump is far too busy to read the posts of an internet troll on a relatively obscure political forum.
  14. Another example of why I have such a low opinion of ALL politicians (yes, that includes both Dems and Reps). Even if she was 60% Native American (I know that she is not), it would not have mattered in the least. It was meaningless white noise that was overdone and made into an issue.
