Tag: Happy Holidays
By JGillman, Section News
Expanding on the theme of "If you are going to take time to craft a holiday message, at least have the decency to recognize why."
Unafraid to use their official positions to recognize that the holidays exist for a reason, the following state executives stepped up and named them. Typically accessed from their government pages, and some referenced from social media, here are some more non PC greetings sure to offend the freaks of progressivism.
Alaska's governor Sean Parnell has traditionally had a Christmas Video out. The newest expected anytime now.
Titled "Seasons Greetings," Indiana governor Mike Pence uses "Christmas" no fewer than 6 times in three full paragraphs. Add a "Blessing" or two, and we Definitely get the message!
Florida's Rick Scott posts a "Christmas" message celebrating ".. a time to celebrate the blessings that are bestowed upon us and the birth of our Lord."
My Goodness, Wyoming's SOS has "Merry Christmas" and a story to go with it right up on the state's website. The Governor, Matt Mead even posts an audio "Merry Christmas."
Maine Governor Paul LePage also posts an audio "Christmas" message for Mainers

It seems every time the good ol US of A comes up with a really great idea, it's value is seen by some as something to capitalize on, so that added regulatory measures and profit siphoning processes are added by government, tools of government, or users of government. And certainly, when we do something in this country, it is decidedly big enough that it has its process duplicated by those who think they can compete with us, and because of the siphoning, it usually isn't too hard.
As many know, I make my living wholesaling CCTV products that come from a variety of countries, but only a few from the US. I have a decent business relationship with overseas based firms that 30 years ago could not have been possible. I respect the ability to import, and I support the competitive nature even in the face of purposefully devalued foreign currency and living conditions. The opportunity for people to compete in some manner sometimes requires this, and what happened during our own industrial revolution now gives hope to even the poorest in nations that seemingly would not have ever had such happenings.
