We're not afraid

The latest news from Wal-Mart is that its employees will be wishing you a Merry Christmas. "We're not afraid to use the term 'Merry Christmas'," Wal-Mart executives have announced, as they abandon their use of "Happy Holidays" as the seasonal greeting.

I'm down with that, but I think they should be willing to add some other gutsy slogans to their repertoire. Like, "We're not afraid to discriminate against female employees," or "We're not afraid to endanger the lives of our employees." "We're not afraid to screw our employees out of their disability benefits." Or how about "We're not afraid to pretend we give a damn about your community and the people in it."

I'm sure there are more.

How about "We're not afraid to hasten the end of the oil age by selling useless overpackaged plastic junk from China."
Or "We're not afraid to ask our employees to work mandatory unpaid overtime."
Or "We're not afraid to totally destroy the fabric of your community to make a buck."

So it's "We're not afraid to say 'Merry Christmas?' now is it? Funny thing is, I don't know a single person (who actually wishes to say 'Merry Christmas') who is afraid. This is total madness. This whole manufactured 'Let's help Bill O'Reilly save Christmas' nonsense shouldn't be an issue at all, whatsoever, in any way. It's so silly I don't know whether to laugh, cry, or be enraged at the stupidity of it. Here's one of the most sane and coherent comments I have ever heard related to this preposterous phenomenon:

Diane, can we get those on greeting cards? I'd like to pass them out this holiday season.

I'm planning on holding up a sign in front of Mall-Wart that reads, "Bill O'Reilly manufactured this hysteria, and all I got was a 'Merry Xmas.'"
