As we celebrate this holiday season, it is time to turn inward, to celebrate a true religion of peace and goodwill toward all …
If our government must spend billions, let them spend billions in our own country, strengthening our people, our resiliency, our crumbling infrastructure, our military, and the system that has made our nation the most outstanding nation on the planet. Let us address and eliminate political corruption and return to the bright shinning place on the hill.
Looking forward to celebrating Christmas 2016 and a conservative election ...
For your consideration from the internet …
Christmas -- Birth of a New Tradition !
As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -- merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor.
This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift-giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Oh, Yes there is! It is time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
Everyone gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon, or barber?
Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.
Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate, or even a book of gift certificates.
Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down the Benjamins on a Chinese-made flat-screen TV? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.
There are a gazillion owner-run restaurants -- all offering gift certificates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint.
Remember, folks this isn't about big National chains -- this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.
How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck, or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?
Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would love the services of a local cleaning lady for a day, or even a week.
My computer could use a tune-up, and I know I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.
OK, you were looking for something more personal. Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery, and beautiful wooden boxes.
Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants, and leave your server a nice tip.
And, how about going-out to see a play, or ballet at your hometown theatre. Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.
Honestly people, do you really need to buy another ten thousand lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of lights, about fifty cents stays in the community.
If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy, or babysitter a nice big tip.
You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city.
Christmas is now about caring about US (We the People), encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging-away to follow their dreams.
And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we could not imagine.
Let us not forget those who cannot celebrate with us today, the silent sentinels who guard our country from our enemies and those who do not wish us well…
Be safe, observe all safety precautions, be vigilant, and use a designated driver. Wishing you and yours the very best. Merry Christmas to all.
