Santa Claus Issues Warning to Presidential Candidates:

Children's Advocate Emphasizes Children's Issues --

Considers Running as the Write-in Candidate for President

Incline Village, NV

July 28, 2008

EXCERPT:

A Christian Monk and children's advocate, whose legal name is Santa Claus, has issued a second appeal to Presidential candidates Obama and McCain to identify their policies and initiatives pertaining to children's issues. Santa Claus posted a question to the candidates on YouTube last year during the "CNN/YouTube" debates asking what their policies and initiatives will be as President, regarding the 2 million children in the United States annually who are abused, neglected, exploited, abandoned, homeless, and institutionalized through no fault of their own. Despite over 20,000 views online, and exposure on MTV News, CNN, The Hill, and NPR News, his appeal thus far has received no response from the candidates. Their lack of response has driven Santa to consider declaring his candidacy for President.

"Evidently, the only way to bring these important children's issues to the attention of the public and compel the Presidential candidates to address them is for me to run as the write-in candidate for President," he commented. "The candidates' inability or unwillingness to answer my question indicates to me that they are blowing off the issue because children don't vote, or fail to realize that there are millions of adult voters who suffered as children the very same political indifference vulnerable children in dire straits suffer today."

We should all say, "I accept the nomination." You figure Santa has 700+ years experience in foreign relations, getting along with just about the whole world. And how much coal must Santa have given away in those naughty stockings....that would help the energy situation. He must have a humongous coal mine.

And how about the energy for transportation and the ability to span the entire population in one night......The world needs those secrets. We could do so much more in delivering food and supplies to the areas in desperate need. It would make FEMA sit up and take notice. Maybe they can take the hint.

And the economy....someone that is able to stay in the same business for centuries regardless of the rest of the worlds economic status. I think He could balance the national budget.

It'll be interesting to see what this guy's official statement, announcing his run for the Presidency, will be like. But somehow, I wonder if the world will accept a United States with Santa Claus as its President. Yes, the question MUST be asked: What about the elves? What about the North Pole and the other key activities? Is the world ready for Mrs. Claus, First Lady? And what about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day themselves? Has this guy not bothered to take them into consideration?

Gang, we need to watch this guy really carefully. If he does go through with that announcement tomorrow, our reputations will be at a major risk. Let's start thinking here, people!

You sure you want the job?

Actually, I have been approached several times to run for office. I briefly considered it. But after considering how much I absolutely HATE politics in the office, I came to the conclusion that I could never run for office.

I haven't read up on this guy lately, but even in fun, you may want to do a little research before getting behind him. Since he is serious and from what I read, pretty much wrote him off as another nut, we may need to be careful.

As for Santa Claus, in general, for President, why not. The US has had the poster child for literacy in power for several years. I'd pick on our Canadian Prime Ministers but, I can't think of enough of the right words that are polite enough to use here!

I'd say there are a few Santas here on my short list for VP. The rest of you will get cabinet positions!

:Santa-Claus: Yes, Santa Rielly you would be the logical choice for your own VP. :Santa-Claus:

But god forbid any cabinet i was a member of, The global economy is grinding to a halt and you practicaly have to sell your every possession to buy fuel.

I am a tad too much like Rufus P. Firefly even for my own tastes, why make it worse?

I am with Santa Mike (Iowa) , we don't need someone putting us in the public eye in a bad way. Right now for that matter I don't think I would really even want the job of President. I just hope it all stays as a joke and keeps it all on good terms we are getting awful close to Christmas!

    • If You Have the Post Christmas Blues You’re Doing Christmas Wrong
      The post-Christmas blues are a very real thing. Once the date of December 25th has passed the specter of December 26th is an ominous marker to many. It sits there on the calendar like the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come. Silent and foreboding, the very image of the hooded Angel of Death it seems to be. And why not?

      Just about anywhere you look Americans are tossing trees to the curb, ripping down lights from rooftops and radio stations are flipping back to everyday music. What took months to build gets deconstructed in a matter of a couple of days.

    • Auld Lang Syne
      Every New Year’s Eve at the stroke of midnight, millions around the world traditionally gather together to sing the same song, “Auld Lang Syne”. As revilers mumble though the song’s versus, it often brings many of them to tears – regardless of the fact that most don’t know or even understand the lyrics. Confusion over the song’s lyrics is almost as much of a tradition as the song itself. Of course that rarely stops anyone from joining in.

    • Merry Christmas, My Friend
      Every year around this time, some variation of this poem is circulated online. The poem is generally credited to “a soldier stationed in Okinawa” or more recently since September 11, 2001, “a Marine stationed in Afghanistan”.

      However, the poem’s true author is Lance Corporal James M. Schmidt.

      Originally entitled, “Merry Christmas, My Friend”, Corporal Schmidt wrote the poem in 1986 while serving as Battalion Counter Sniper at the Marine Barracks 8th & I, in Washington, D.C.

      That day the poem was placed in the Marine Corps Gazette and distributed worldwide. Schmidt’s poem was later published in Leatherneck (Magazine of the Marines) in December 1991.

      Do you think we should start calling out those in our community whose actions or behavior is unbecoming of Santa Claus or Mrs. Claus?

      Backlash Building Against The Man Who Invented Christmas

      EXCERPT:

      There is a new Christmas movie headed to theaters this Christmas about Charles Dickens about his creation of A Christmas Carol and Christmas purists hate it. Already.

      The film has a stellar cast that features the dreamy-eyed Dan Stevens as Dickens and the legendary Christopher Plummer as Scrooge. Here is the trailer:

      “This is a very presumptuous film,” said Christmas fan and would-be film critic, Arnold Yates, via MSN. “Charles Dickens was great but he certainly didn’t invent Christmas. Bah Humbug!”

      That sentiment is growing online as the preview makes the rounds.

    • Seeking recognition
      Seeking recognition is a downward path for a legend who performs his tasks in the veil of night.

      Recently, a fellow portrayer of Santa posted an image on Facebook that they constructed to look like a magazine cover with him on it and several story snips like many publications have on their covers.  You may have seen it if they are your friend on Facebook.  It looks okay.  The composition is good, but the rendering when uploading it to Facebook became distorted it and it is quite pixelated when you look at it from a development standpoint.

      Yes, I said it and it is not meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. I do view many Facebook sites along with websites and posted photos. Frankly, many of these postings should have never been put on public display.

    • Infringement? Make up your own mind.
      In the last couple of days, on several different social media and bidding sites, an item has been offered for sale that in my opinion is cause for suspicion.  I would like to bring that product to your attention.

      There is some disagreement over whether or not it is an infringement or not.  I believe it is close enough to be considered as an infringement, but that is not the only the reason behind my post.

      Why Bass Pro Shops’ longtime Santa won’t be back this Christmas

      Christmas is going to be a little different this year for families whose traditions include visiting Santa at Bass Pro Shops. Paul Davis, who spent the last nine years as the Bass Pro Santa in Ashland, will not be there anymore.
