It’s Christmas Eve and most Americans will spend the night snug in their beds with various pleasing visions dancing in their heads. Some few though will spend it otherwise…
So when your enjoying opening your Christmas presents tomorrow and/or enjoying watching your loved ones open theirs, give a moments thought to present you’ve all recieved – your liberty, security, and prosperity. They didn’t come from Santa and they were purchased with Amex or Visa; they were leased with the blood, sweat, and tears of the men and women of our armed services.
Yes, your liberty, security, and prosperity were and are gifts. You likely did not earn them and, given the degeneration of American society, you likely don’t deserve them.
To my fellow Pagans and Heathens – It was just Yule and these men and women offered themselves up to the Wicker Man in our names in all willingness and in the fullness of knowledge.
That’s the best part presents – and rights – though, isn’t it? You don’t have to earn them or deserve them as long as someone else is willing to foot the bill.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed Yuletide.
