Merry Christmas Senator, and to all a good night.
Greetings and Merry Christmas once again. I’m sitting here collecting my thoughts before heading to bed at the end of Christmas Day, and I thought I’d share this with you. The other day I got an automatic email from Sen. Nelson; I’ve been on his “list” for a long time. As such, I get his newsletters and the like, which is good so I can keep track and compare what he’s doing to what he says he’s doing.
By the way, I absolutely understand that no senator or representative has the time to answer every single communication from every single constituent, and I even recognize that a constituency has many different groups in it. But would it be wrong for an office holder to simply include whatever his own greeting might be? For example, if I were in office, and being Christian, I would say something like “Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.” If I were other than Christian, say Jewish; I would say something like “Happy Hanukkah and Happy Holidays.” The point is I would include the specific holiday I celebrate and make an attempt to be less generic.
In any case, I thought I’d share the reply I sent to Senator Nelson.
I continue to be stunned at yours and the Senates complete disregard of the will of the people in pushing through this outrageous bill. What part of “we don’t want it” do you not get?
Also, your politically correct “happy holidays” greeting leaves me cold as I would and do say “Merry Christmas.” What a beautiful statement we use to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus.
And on that note, I do wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. It is my hope that the latter part of the New Year finds you seeking new employment as you re-assess your values.
