Kids write Santa this year for basic needs


#1

Santa Claus and his elves are seeing more heartbreaking letters this year as children cite their parents’ economic troubles in their wish lists.
U.S. Postal Service workers who handle letters addressed to Santa at the North Pole say more letters ask for basics — coats, socks and shoes — rather than Barbie dolls, video games and computers.
At New York City’s main post office, Head Elf Pete Fontana and 22 staff elves will sort 2 million letters in Operation Santa, which connects needy children with “Secret Santas” who answer their wishes.

I feel such sorrow for these children that instead of looking for toys are asking just to survive.

BUT BUT BUT the economy is picking up according to our partying president

Do WHAT??? Sorry, one of the first times I havn’t opened the site to read the whole article, but it’s just too stupid for me to even consider at this moment.

Okay, seeing as no one has pointed out the obvious, I will.
Here, and I imagine in cities across the country, they’re considering consolidating post offices. Here, the Powers That Be are being as stupid as you would suspect ALL Powers that Be are in choosing which to close. Yep, the most efficient.
IF nitwits at post offices are actually opening SANTA CLAUSE LETTERS!!!..
…Oh please…Need I say more???

Sounds like a liberal hack story to me, similar to “the republicans want to take school lunches away”
