Christmas Spirit

I am sick and tired of the depressing crap that dominates the news these days - not the least of which is the latest massacre perpetrated by the 'religion of peace.'
The floors are streaked in blood and the walls pockmarked with bullet holes. Many children trying to flee were shot in the doorways of their classrooms; their bodies piled up, preventing others from escaping.
Co-exist my ass.

Then there's all the nonsense on the domestic front, the most ridiculous of which is michelle obama's claim that someone asking her to reach an item on the top shelf in Target was racial discrimination.
Michelle Obama worked her way way through college compiling poorly written essays on racial discrimination. Now, she is talking to People Magazine about a tour she took recently as the First Lady of the United States at a Target store. At 5 ft. 11 in., someone didn’t recognize her, and asked Michelle to help her grab something off of a shelf. Which is racism…
“I tell this story – I mean, even as the first lady – during that wonderfully publicized trip I took to Target, not highly disguised, the only person who came up to me in the store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her. Those kinds of things happen in life. So it isn’t anything new,” Michelle Obama, who is 5’11”, said.
One of the many problem's with that statement is that it runs counter to her original remarks on the event. She said the following during an interview with David Letterman back in 2012.
MICHELLE OBAMA: I thought I was undercover. I have to tell you something about this trip though. No one knew that was me because a woman actually walked up to me, right? I was in the detergent aisle, and she said — I kid you not — she said, "Excuse me, I just have to ask you something," and I thought, "Oh, cover’s blown." She said, "Can you reach on that shelf and hand me the detergent?"  I kid you not…And the only thing she said — I reached up, ’cause she was short, and I reached up, pulled it down — she said, "Well, you didn’t have to make it look so easy." That was my interaction. I felt so good.
So which is it, mooch? Racism, feel-good interaction, or shameless hypocrisy to further a fabricated narrative?

I think we all know the answer to that one.

Anyway, like I said, I'm fed up and disgusted with all that's going on these days - and during the holiday Christmas season, no less.

Time for a little Christmas spirit...
