My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Controversy & Opinion Visit Defend Christmas.com Presented by Defend Christmas, this forum covers the difficult topics of the season -- from the famed and fabled War on Christmas to church and state debates to using the star or the angel on the Christmas tree. Modern Christmas celebration has it's complications -- schools are divided, some Christmas light displays are too much, some even argue that it is better to call it a "holiday" tree.

Stevie Nicks doing Silent Night (ironic) is pure torture.

You gotta love Sheriff Joe Arpaio! He is a law enforcement legend!

Living here in Maricopa county myself, if Cowboy Joe wants to really torture the inmates, he could play the song "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth" or Joe could have himself video taped ballet dancing to the Nutcracker Suite while in a skin tight ballet dress with tutu.
