Last year I recalled a Revolutionary Christmas in A Christmas to Remember – Valley Forge – 1777.
This year I bring you one that I remember fondly from my youth! This was an Expeditionary Christmas!
Apollo 8 ‘Genesis’ broadcast 1968, extended version
The historic live broadcast made by the crew of Apollo 8 while they were in lunar orbit on Christmas Eve 1968, when they each took turns to read from the book of Genesis.
William A. Anders:
We are now approaching lunar sunrise. And, for all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 have a message that we would like to send to you. ”In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light, and God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.”
James A. Lovell, Jr.:
”And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters, and God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven, And the evening and the morning were the second day.”
”And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.” And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close, with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you, all of you on the good earth.

This was of the Earth, for the Earth, and to the Earth in the spirit of Goodwill for all Mankind!

Looks like 2008 this video was history in the making:
PARODY: Obama Trick-or-Treat Spoof • Shanklin
Halloween on the Obama’s house
So 2009’s rendition is worthy of a repeat as they all revealed their true selves:
Democratic Monster Mash
Just in time for Halloween, it’s a tunefully terrifying party featuring Barack Obama, Barney Frank(enstein), Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and Scary Harry Reid! The “Monster Mash” has never been so much fun – or so filled with genuinely scary politicians! Your Halloween gift from HopeNChangeCartoons.com!
This year the reality is Hoax & Change, It’s 2010 but it seems like the Carter years again:
Every American feels the pain of Charlie Brown this Halloween
No one wants to get another Rock! Yet that’s all we are treated to!
We have seen the dirty tricks and special treats for the Unions, the Socialists, the Progressives, the Loony Left, the Democrats, the Marxists and all of the redistribution that “We the People” care to see. Patriots VOTE SMART with Heart for a Fresh Start for our United States of America!
Let’s get jobs, not speeches or constant campaigning, for America! Vote the “Peanuts Gang” out and let’s get to making real money, and have real jobs, by voting on Tuesday!

The polls don’t appear to follow the desires of “We the People”. How can any polls be leading for any Radical Democrat, when Democratic “Leaders” can’t even fill their speaking arenas?

Clinton: Bernero is best choice to lead Michigan and most telling details~
“…While the crowd hoisted signs that stated “Virg Surge,” the turnout at the rally was anemic. More than 500 people came to the rally, but the gym at Renaissance High School was only about one-third full, even though Clinton used to command full houses wherever he went, especially in Detroit…”

Why do good Patriots travel hundreds to thousands of miles for events? Last night when the Tea Party Express IV rolled into Bryant Arkansas, the family next to me had driven over from Memphis Tennessee! There are larger events over the last two years where even greater travels were made:
Glenn Beck’s Rally to ‘Restore Honor’ Gathers Half a Million Americans, Makes History
TEA Party Still Going Strong and Growing Crowds in Searchlight Nevada
912 Tea Party March on Washington DC, on 9/12 2009
There is so much disinformation going on in our country right now, but Patriots are able to separate the wheat from the chaff. “We the People” know that there is nothing more true than the “Red, White, and Blue”. Radicals, you lose… Patriots have had over a 200 year head start that has proven to be tried and true. The United States of America IS and Forever Will Be the “…Land of the Free… and the Home… of the… Brave!”

Stripes – Don’t Call Me Francis
Don’t Call Me Francis
Much as Frank/Francis comes to learn, no one fears the mouth, the threat, the anger… it is despised. After just a few times, Frank’s threat means nothing. It’s laughable.
Just imagine if you will, America, that we had to jump start this country all over again due to the sadistic behavior of the Progressive “sour powers that be”… we started with a lot less over 200 years ago. They want all the money and they are stealing it, but they will awaken the “quiet men and women” of this country. No one likes to be rudely awakened, and America is no exception. Patriots won’t start trouble but they will surely end it. Enjoy the right fight with the right song ~

SCOTUS – Current Justices
Today “Supreme Court Removes Limits on Corporate, Labor Donations to Campaigns” as reported by FOX News. Well I never thought that an entity (a corporation) would be given the First Amendment to own and embrace? Are there any exceptions, any caveats? Oh if this isn’t going to be the “the one with the most spoils or soils (dollars or detractors)” can overly finance or easily smear a running candidate. Are there any time constraints, or can they love to death their next chosen one the day after any election or spew hate to cause overt distress upon a sitting official (hoping for a resignation)? Just some thoughts on how perverse this decision is to authorize corporate spending on political campaigns when…
…at the same time the other two branches of government: the Executive Branch (aka Bogus POTUS) and the Congress of the United States (COTUS) cries foul on these same corporations for paying their own employees bonuses before, during and after they bailed these same corporations out with enormous amounts of taxpayer dollars with strings attached. Some of the worst offenders exist in our Congress who perpetuated this “Circle of Strife” recession and are still playing the game. Even Obama loves to cast a volley now and then. Oh, the irony.
