Tales from the O-NO Ranch

As the holiday season approaches, gentle readers, I somehow feel that a good many of the good parts of our familiar holiday season just may be slipping away from our gasp. By that, I mean since political correctness has gotten such a firm grip on the way we are told to think, be and do, our holidays seem to be changing. You don’t see many (if any) nativity scenes around public buildings like we have in years past. It’s just not the correct thing to do now in our present society ” at least that’s what we’ve been told. After all, we live in a multiculture society, right? Well, let me tell ya what, pilgrim, we have always lived in a multiculture society and never had any problems that I ever heard of.

Now get this ” ole Santa is just too fat and he is a bad influence on our young children. Yep, he’s encouraging them to be overweight like he is. I suppose ole Santa would have to look like Arnold Schwartzenlarger for the politically correct crowd to be happy.

How long do you think we will have Thanksgiving before it has to undergo surgery to look more like the rest of this goofy reconstruction of our holidays? Will we be having Gratefulgiving Day, or maybe Gratitudegiving Day in the near future? Please, spare me. Where’s Hoppy, Gene, or Roy or the Duke when ya need ’em? We just have to be absolutely sure that we don’t offend the slightest of the slightest in our country today. I would bet you my new Billy Cook saddle that there ain’t one out of a hundred, maybe a thousand folks in ethnic groups that care one way or the other how we decorate or celebrate our holidays. They don’t care if we give thanks to God for the blessings we have received or celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the meaning it has for most all of us here in the goold ole U.S.A. Whatever we do we must not invoke any COMMON SENSE into our thinking. Why, heck, that would just destroy everything now wouldn’t it?

I have stepped down off my soap box and I will wish you all a happy, blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving and there is some area of your life that you can be thankful for!

Stay tuned, check yer cinch on occasion and I’ll c. ya.
