A fine line - by Mr. Daddy

There is a fine line between being of a gracious heart, and a cynical Grinch...

And in the infamous words of the song by Johny Cash "I walk the line."

That line for me is my desire to be a benevolent person by choice, and a government that says they want to do it for me, and by legislation tries to make it so...

Mohandas Gandhi, once said that. "The spirit of democracy is not a mechanical thing to be adjusted by abolition of forms. It requires change of heart."

So in keeping with the Spirit of the season, and in an honest effort to change my heart. I am forwarding on a E-mail that a friend shared with me. So that all my friend, no matter of what persuasion will be blessed with the holiday spirit...


To My Democratic Friends:
Please accept with no obligation, implied or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low-stress, non-addictive, gender-neutral celebration of the winter solstice holiday, practiced within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion of your choice, or secular practices of your choice, with respect for the religious/secular persuasion and/or traditions of others, or their choice not to practice religious or secular traditions at all. I also wish you a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2011 but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures whose contributions to society have helped make America great. Not to imply that America is necessarily greater than any other country nor the only America in the Western Hemisphere . Also, this wish is made without regard to the race, creed, color, age, physical ability, religious faith or sexual preference of the wishee.


To My Republican Friends:
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Mr. Daddy.
