It's going to be a very good year!
I love Bojangles' steak biscuits with egg. I placed my order and waited in a very busy line of other customers this Saturday morning one week before Christmas. As the jovial clerk full of holiday cheer and enthusiasm prepared my order he offered a very loud greeting to all of us waiting in line. "Happy Holidays everyone!" he said in a loud booming voice. I decided then and there I would become a part of the "Silent-No-More Majority". I returned the greeting with "And a Very Merry Christmas to you my friend!"
A resounding crescendo echoed through out the crowd with comments like "That's right! Merry Christmas", "Yes! He is the reason for the season!", "Don't you just hate those generic greetings?". The public response was really heart warming. The friendly jovial clerk apologetically stated that company policy made him wait until the customer offered a "Merry Christmas" first, then he could return the greeting in kind. I am so glad I didn't make him wait any longer and judging from the reaction of my fellow biscuit eaters, we all pretty much felt the same way.
Your choice. Pick a side. Remain part of the silent majority. Don't offend any minority group no matter how small or perverted or subversive they may be. That's why we don't have nativity scenes in the public square, prayer in schools or before high school football games and why we are reluctant to call people trying to annihilate us, terrorists. Or, join the American side. The Silent-No-More Majority who believes in the principles this country was founded on, the constitution and have decided not to consent by silence any longer. God, Family, Country. I have a voice. I will use it. I will not press "1 for English".
Oh yeah, I have a Bible, I read it, I understand it, I believe it and I vote regularly. King James Version (KJV) Luke 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed , when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.
So here is wishing you a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. If you celebrate something else, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukah, etc.
