Texas got it right....again!!


#1

I have a feeling we’re gonna hear a lot of wranglings about this! I have to say, though, that I give this governor a lot of credit! You Texans, is he a good governor??

‘Merry Christmas’ bill signed by Texas governor Rick Perry


#2

Christians values under attack while some schools are promoting Mexican holidays and even Muslim holidays. It will be a matter of time when schools will be told they have to provide breaks for Muslim prayer.


#3

That depends on who you ask. the libertarians and the hardcore exclusionary tea party hate him but the rest of the republicans love him.


#4

What mexican holidays are there?


#5

Cinco de Mayo? There’s also a big Mexican holiday that I think occurs just before Christmas–maybe St. Nicholas’ Day–but it is a big deal in Mexico. Kids place their shoes outside before bed and the next morning the shoes are full of treats. I don’t have any problem with schools teaching different cultures–but not to the exclusion of Christian culture. That is what I find objectionable.

What is a “hard core exclusionary tea party”?


#6

The only people in mexico that celebrate it are the people who live near where that battle took place. Its mostly an American holiday, an excuse to eat tex-mex and drink margaritas

What is a “hard core exclusionary tea party”?

The people who think one of two bad votes or differences in positions disqualify you from being a conservative. They constantly take people that were championed as members of the tea party and toss them directly into the RINO pile.

[/quote]I don’t know but it seems I read some where in the past there was a school celebrating Mexican holidays.


#8

Yeah, like Paul Ryan, Newt Gingrich, and Rick “Vaccine” Perry.

Tea Party people from the beginning…not!


#9

I hope such a bill is redundant…I mean I’m against forcing religion upon another but saying ‘Merry Christmas’ isn’t exactly what I’d call forcing religion upon someone. I’m far too Californian and too non-conservative to make a good judgement on Rick Perry for his other policies but I’ve some family and friends in Texas, they seem to have a mildly-positive view of him.


#10

Well thank you, Robert! I always appreciate an honest man! (or woman)


#11

I’m with you. This seems like a useless law used only to make a statement. Saying “Merry Christmas” is already covered by the first amendment.


#12

I am so happy you made a thread about this bill CT. Rick Perry, I am so happy you signed this bill to put sanity back into a place of insanity!


#13

For a teacher in a public school, the first amendment is practically useless if a teacher is interested in keeping his/her job.


#14

If a teacher gets fired for saying Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Easter, Happy Ramadan, etc., than something is seriously wrong with that school district…
