"Holiday Tree" In Boston

This is what's wrong. Political correctness is taking over Christmas. Ol' BC fails to see how any non-Christian would feel threatened at a Christmas celebration or by calling a traditional Christmas tree a Christmas tree. But that's what's going on in Boston. The location shouldn't surprise anyone, but some of the sentiments may.

The Nova Scotia logger who cut down the 48-foot (14-meter) tree was
indignant and said he would not have donated the tree if he had known of the
name change.
"I'd have cut it down and put it through the chipper," Donnie
Hatt told a Canadian newspaper. "If they decide it should be a holiday tree,
I'll tell them to send it back. If it was a holiday tree, you might as well put
it up at Easter."

Well said Mr. Hatt. Many many people agree with you. But, you see, in Boston they don't tell you these things in advance. They sneak it in on you.

In Boston, many residents voiced their dismay over the Web site that
promotes a December 1 ceremony for "Boston's Official Holiday Tree
Christmas has become too politically correct, said 64 percent of
people who responded to an online poll by a CBS television affiliate in
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino said he would keep calling the Nova Scotia
spruce a "Christmas tree" regardless of what it said on the city's official Web
"I grew up with a Christmas tree, I'm going to stay with a Christmas
tree," Menino told reporters on Thursday.

The majority of Bostonians who were polled disagree with the whole political correctness effort. The mayor disagrees and has the backbone to go on record. So, WHO MAKES THESE DECISIONS?

Just a thought.

Well, the mayor says he'll continue to call it a christmas tree, but will he order his dopey bureaucrats to belay all that PC crap, change the website and "officially" call it a christmas tree? Will he fire those who won't comply?
Probably not.

Backbone-free, unlike you and me.

Ol' BC ...

How easily we forget that the ACLU makes all the political decisions in Massachusetts...
