'No Merry Christmas,' U.S. House Members Told

Control of the USA has definitely fallen into alien hands:
Members of the House of Representatives are being told that no holiday greetings, including “Merry Christmas,” can be sent out in official mail.

According to the Washington Examiner, members who submit official mailings for review by the congressional franking commission that reviews all congressional mail to determine if it can be "franked," or paid for with tax dollars, are being told that no holiday greetings, including "Merry Christmas," can be sent.

"I called the commission to ask for clarification and was told no 'Merry Christmas.' Also told cannot say 'Happy New Year' but can say 'have a happy new year' – referencing the time period of a new year, but not the holiday," a Hill staffer who requested anonymity told the paper.

Another Hill staffer said that "we were given that advice after submitting" a draft mailing.



  1. I saw this on O'Reilly Factor and I can see the other side.

    If I received a card from Juliar telling me how good the carbon tax will be for the planet, oh and by the way, Merry Christmas, I would be be infuriated. If it was just carbon tax bumf, ok straight in the bin and normal levels of anger at the government would be maintained.

    Probably a good idea to keep Christmas messages and political messages separate.

  2. But AR, teh aliens! It's obvious!

  3. Toaf is still lurking!

    Pity he can't spell "the"

  4. "Teh" is some sort of internet thing. It's what leftists do when they're being ironic. That's ironic, not moronic.

    But it's good to see Toaf is still with us! And learning.
