These people are only just now realizing that the NORAD/Santa thing has been associating Christmas with the military in front of children for 58 years?

Some people really spend way too much time and energy just searching for something to be outraged about.

edmo: It was a cute NORAD thing back when it started and didn't have it's own budget. How do you justify this fun stuff now when you have to furlough people due to lack of money? That's not just a cynical question but a real concern that DOD doesn't even try to prioritize what's important let alone cut their spending.

Me thinks you are unaware how the military works. They get a set budget; but, if they fail to spend ALL of the money, they immediately get their budget reduced. It is usually a catastrophic reduce. Thems the breaks!

Biff_Steel: The war on christmas continues unabated. My guess is they had to look pretty hard to uncover this latest front of the war.

DEAR FOX NEWS: I am 38 years old. Some of my lie-beral friends say there is no War on Christmas. Papa Bill O'Reilly says, 'If you see it on FOX NEWS it's fair and balanced.' Please tell me the truth; is there a War on Christmas?

Yes, VIRGINIA, there is a War on Christmas. It exists as certainly as death panels and fake birth certificates and Muslim prayer curtains exist, and you know that they abound. Alas! how dreary would be the 24-hour news cycle if there were no War on Christmas. It would be as dreary as if there were no VIRGINIAS. There would be no shrill, overopinionated, underinformed people screaming at each other on "news" shows. The eternal light of imagined persecution that fills the talk shows would be extinguished.

Not believe in War on Christmas! You might as well not believe in derp! You might get your papa to hire men to watch all the checkout aisles in all the stores, but even if they did not see someone saying "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas," what would that prove? Nobody sees the War on Christmas, but that is no sign that there is no War on Christmas. The most real things in the world are those that obese, drug abusing, college flunk-out talk show hosts insist are real. Did you ever see the UN exert any kind of control over domestic policy? Of course not, but that's no proof that the blue-helmets aren't going to roll down your street and take your guns away and force you to read the Koran and stop you from spanking your kids. 

No War on Christmas! Thank God! it lives, and it lives forever. A thousand years from now, VIRGINIA, nay, ten times ten thousand years from now, it will continue to make glad the heart of 24-hour news channels with time to fill and a partisan narrative to push.

I'm kind of baffled by the need for them to put fighter planes in front of Santa.  Why would he need a defensive escort?

But whatevs.
