    Thank you so much for everything you do Steve. It cannot be said enough. You sir are what makes S&L what it is.

    To all warriors and veterans out there – I shudder to think what this country would be without you.

    Hope everyone has a joyful Christmas holiday.

    To bother all the anti-Christian bigots out there, and flush them out from whatever rock they are under…..

    Merry CHRIST-CHRIST-CHRISTY-JESUS-SAVIOR-MESSIAH-SON of GOD-CHRISTmas!

    • sticks says:

      Here is a prayer, that all the supposedly “Christian” bigots would just be quiet and crawl back under the rock where they belong, otherwise that they would grow up and learn some real truths about Godliness as taught by Jesus the true Son of God, something we all need. A heart felt merry Christmass to all.

    This site truly is the gift that keeps on giving. When I’m down, I come here for the humor. Always informative and always cutting edge.
    Thank you Steve!
    Special Thanks to those that wear or have worn the military uniform, you’re the best!
    Finally, Thanks to those that post here. You folks give me more points to ponder than a packaging foreman in a needle factory. Merry Christmas to all!
    PS.
    SJ. I KNOW, your out there. Rumor has it that OWS is going to resurrect the “SNAG” for the Rose Bowl Parade. Looking forward to future comment. No sugar coating! HAW!

      Merry Christmas to all! DW, ZILLA, WIRENUT, all of you who remember the olden days of yore, when Cindy the SNAG Sheehan graced us with her vapid mind numbingly moronic drivel for days on end while she calmly stole money, lied through her teeth, and secretly scraped gum from under the tables at Denny’s and made Bush figurines out of it. She is the gift that keeps on giving, and should she be dumb enough…rhetorical…to try to rain on the Rose Bowl Parade along with the great unwashed, uneducated, and dumber than a piece of overdone broccoli OWS crowd….well, I have no choice but to slam her into the dirt she resides in yet again….

      Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

    • DW says:

      Yeah, I remember those days, SJ. Mostly what I remember is having to go out and buy a new monitor every few days to replace the one that fried because I kept spewing whatever I happened to be drinking at the time al over it because of your posts.
      Have a merry Christmas my friend -and the same to all S&L’ers, new and old.

      And, as tranquil night already pointed out, let’s keep a thought for those in uniform who are spending this day far from home and family.

    • Zilla says:

      I’m still lurking. heh heh

    • canary says:

      Zilla, what’s that little red dot on top of the American Flag icon you lurch with.

    • Zilla says:

      It says NRA. That is the emblem of the United States F-Class Open Rifle Team.

    • canary says:

      Zilla, ooh. I see. ho ho ho.

  5. Liberals Make Great Speedbumps says:

    Merry Christmas to you all. Thank heaven that this island of sanity still exists!

  6. spiffyw says:

    Thank’s To Steve and all the Sweetness Posters.
    Merry Merry Christmas

  7. River0 says:

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, too, Steve! The war against Christmas continues, but we’ll be on the front lines with you as long as we have breath and life.

  8. P. Aaron says:

    Hope y’all get lotsa cool stuff!

    Every year at this time, I recall an event of extreme significance. Forty-three years ago on Christmas Eve , in a strange country half a world away from here, a small group of us gathered in a tiny wooden chapel and celebrated the birth of Our Savior at mid-night Mass.

    There were only about fifteen or twenty of us there in a building with a tin roof and no sides–about the size of an average kitchen. Most of us were enlisted men but there were a couple of officers too, all of us dirty, tired, and somewhat disheveled….certainly not Christmas finery. Our gear was stacked outside on the ground. I was fortunate enough to have been free to attend. It would be my first Christmas alone, away from my wife of six months who was three months pregnant with our first child. My daughter would be three months old when I first laid eyes on her and held her in my arms.

    Most of us weren’t acquainted with one another, yet we didn’t feel like strangers either. There, midst the chaos and stupidity that is war, we collectively paused to escape one reality and reflect on another. And to give thanks. I didn’t sing particularly well, nor did the others, especially without musical accompaniment to mask our deficiencies, but we lifted our voices to the hymns and carols and continued until I could no longer keep my voice from breaking. ‘Silent Night’ was impossible for me.

    But the night did remain silent. And we concluded our celebration in fellowship, as only those who bear shared sacrifice and hardship, and fear, and uncertainty will understand. And for a brief few minutes, insanity was replaced with genuine love of fellow man and the hope for a better tomorrow.

    I know it will sound crazy, but this remains the most solemn and beautiful Christmas celebration of my life, for it was stripped of everything materialistic and commercial, and reduced to the true essence of the miracle of redemption. There was nothing to distract from that message of salvation.

    There have been many other Christmas days since then, and I haven’t missed a mid-night Mass since that time, but none compare to that humbling, uplifting experience. I have a beautiful grown family, and grandchildren of my own, for whose futures I fervently pray.

    Thank you, Steve, for providing a forum where people gather and with whom I feel the same kindred spirit as I did in that little make-shift chapel so many years ago. I know that as long as the fire of freedom burns in their hearts, there WILL be a better day.

    May God bless all of my friends here on this most special of holy days. Merry Christmas, all.

    Merry Christmas too you all, and thank you for your shared wisdom, opinions, humor and love of country through all the turmoil of the last few years. JohnMG, I can relate all too well as I spent too many Christmas eve’s and days deployed over the last couple of decades. Very blessed to be home with my family now, and retired. So to all those who are still out there, weapon in hand, ruck on back- Merry Christmas, God bless, and Happy New Year.

    It’s Merry Christmas everyday to have Sweetness and Light in the world. Group hug. oxoxoxox

    My toast: “To 2012, the year when the oceans will start rising again and the planet will goes back to the brink of enviro-apocalypse, and Obama begins work on his memoirs!”

    Havana Club Rum…7 years old. Not the other stuff…the 7 year old one That’s all I’m saying. The 7 year old. Enough of that and all the pain goes away and even Romney looks electable. Happy New Year, friends!

    If you don’t want to break our all-important trade embargo with Cuba, that enslaved island, Gosling’s Black Rum from Bermuda works well too (hic).

    SJ. The scarecrow of babble has yet again reared her urinal-lipped cabbagehead.http://news.yahoo.com/cindy-sheehan-announces-crowd-occupy-rose-bowl-haven-011304741.html . Puss from an A$$crack boil, not only looks better, It makes more sense. The thing that makes this right, is even the democraps will use a pressure-washer to clean this stench from their bus tires. Haw!
