    How do you distinguish 'the left' from 'the far left'?

    yes. Christians pretty much own this country. no amount of crying victim is going to change this fact.
    Would you prefer more input from atheists? How would they do things differently?

    How would these compare to examples of hatred carried out by non-believers?

    Assuming there's a spectrum, the farthest from the center. BTW, this was her term.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I'm curious to see an example of a University that celebrated other religious holidays except for Christmas. I can see if the University in question be a private one such as Islamic or Hindu owned, but you could also see a Catholic University not wishing to display one on Ramadan too. Can you provide a news story please?

    He's already says he can't/won't back it up. He claims his "evidence" is purely anecdotal personal experience that he saw himself. No one is buying it.

    You seem disappointed. Do you have another preference?

    Christmas is now far more than a religious holiday and it's odd this isn't being acknowledged. It is celebrated throughout all the democracies and one's religion, or lack of it, has nothing to do with the the Christmas season, or its spirit. What 'Joy" is there in Ramadan, for example. Not knocking it at all but if Ramadan ever ends up being as much fun as Christmas we'll probably get into it.

    Many religious groups seem to be celebrating Christmas and more power to them. The rest of the year they can do whatever it is they do but they want to have fun as much as anyone else, and be good neighbors with the decorations, small gifts and all.

    What a bunch of fun free grouches there are in this world.

    Yes. There are loads of people that actually need help in this world, so I prefer people to not to volunteer themselves as victims for no realistic reason.
