Up Up and Away!

This is funny. And all Lefties should watch it to the end.

And a hat tip to either Grant M or Jimmy M. (I'm having a Senior Moment.)

Christmas No No No Ho Ho

You knew it would come to this.

FGCU administration has banned all holiday decorations from common spaces on campus and canceled a popular greeting card design contest, which is being replaced by an ugly sweater competition. In Griffin Hall, the university's giving tree for needy preschoolers has been transformed into a "giving garden."

The moves boil down to political correctness.

"Public institutions, including FGCU, often struggle with how best to observe the season in ways that honor and respect all traditions," President Wilson Bradshaw wrote in a memo to faculty and staff Thursday. "This is a challenging issue each year at FGCU, and 2008 is no exception. While it may appear at times that a vocal majority of opinion is the only view that is held, this is not always the case."

Bradshaw's directive struck a chord with FGCU employees. The Staff Advisory Council received 44 anonymous comments on the issue; all were against the ban on holiday decorations.

It goes with out saying that this demonstrates a typical far Left position that always denies and attacks anything traditionally American.

controlmonkey said it best:

What FGCU has done is this: They have turned political correctness into a religion. Also, by banning displays that pay homage to other religions, they are forcing their the students to practice the college mandated religion which is political correctness. Can they not see what they have done ? These are people that are paid by us to teach our children @ a college level?

Uh, Mr. controlmonkey, they don't give a damn about what you like.
