Fellow Local Connecticut Law Enforcement Officers Give Newtown Police Christmas Day Off … “It’s a police thing”
‘Tis the Season, The long Blue Line of Christmas caring … “It’s a police thing”.
The tragedy of the Newtown, CT Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting has not just been difficult on the families who have lost loved ones when 26 people were murdered, including 20 children, but it’s also been demanding on the Newtown police department. They have been going nonstop since the shooting massacre and are getting a rare Christmas gift. Their fellow law enforcement brethren in nearby communities of Monroe, Brookfield, Danbury, Bethel and Milford are allowing for the Newtown’s police officers a holiday off, for the entire force. Lt. Bob Kozlowsky of the Shelton, Connecticut, police department said, “when something like this happens … it’s a police thing. We’ll always try to help out neighboring towns. Any time there’s a tragedy, we’ll try our best to lend a helping hand.”
On Christmas Day, thanks to a grassroots effort by their fellow law enforcement brethren in nearby communities, Newtown’s police officers will be the recipients of a rare gift in their profession — a holiday off, for the entire force.
“Patrol officers and sworn personnel will be given the day off to be home on Christmas. Officers from surrounding towns will be patrolling Newtown,” police Sgt. Steve Santucci of Newtown told CNN.
Newtown police have been working nonstop since the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14. The school shooting claimed the lives of 20 children and six faculty members, leaving a close-knit community — and its police force — still reeling 10 days later.
“We’ve sent officers, dispatchers, and even our chief of police has gone to Newtown to help out. We’ve helped with dispatching, traffic, miscellaneous calls. Our chief of police has gone to assist their chief of police with administrative duties.”
On Christmas Day, those neighborly officers will take to the streets of Newtown again. For a time, for a day, it can be Christmas for the officers of Newtown and their families.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL FROM SCARED MONKEYS …
On this special day we would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas. As you are unwrapping presents, spending time with family, friends and loved ones, and experiencing the joy of this day, always keep in mind the true reason for the season and this joyous, “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” We would like to send a special MERRY CHRISTMAS wish to all those who could not spend Christmas with their families, especially those who have lost loved ones. A special prayer goes out to the families of Newtown, CT who are going through such a difficult time this Christmas season. Our hearts and prayers are with you. Also, a special thanks to the men and women of our Armed Forces who could not be with our families so that we could.
God bless them, everyone.
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing – Charlotte Church
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.
And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger.

Tis the Season to be Rotten … Louisiana Woman Allowed by Judge to Flip Middle Finger In Holiday Lights to Her Neighbors
NOT THE REASON FOR THE SEASON …
Every wonder what’s wrong with people, the country the misuse of the First Amendment, public decency and the hate that is so consumed in individuals these days? One needs to look no further than Louisiana and a Christmas light display formed in the shape of a middle finger … What would Jesus say?
A Louisiana woman has been allowed by a judge, thanks to the representation of the ACLU, to put back up her Christmas lights in the form of flipping the middle finger toward her neighbors. United States District Judge James Brady issued an order temporarily barring city officials from interfering with the display. The two-page order stated the city’s “continued efforts” to prevent Childs from displaying her holiday lights will violate her rights to free speech and due process. So this is what passes as freedom of speech these days. The hell with others civil rights and public decency laws. This woman and the ACLU have a warped sense of understanding of the reason for the season. The ACLU is so quick to help take Christ out of Christmas, yet the are perfectly ok with defending such an appalling and classless example of free speech while using the holiday for their own self-serving and exploitive purposes.
Louisiana woman ran afoul of police when she gave her neighbors an unusual holiday greeting, hanging Christmas lights in the shape of a middle finger.
Sarah Childs was in a dispute with some of her neighbors in Denham Springs, just east of Baton Rouge, so she decided to send a message with her decorations. Neighbors complained and police threatened to arrest her, so she and the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana sued the city.
A judge ruled in her favor Thursday.
Just a quick note and reminder to Sarah Childs, the ACLU and the rest of the misguided and hate filled individuals that make life so miserable for others and ruin what was once a glorious country with your hateful, anti-God agenda … the following is the reason for the season. Of course it is the very meaning of Christmas that the ACLU attacks on a daily basis.
Does Anyone know what Christmas is all about?
President Barack Obama … The Grinch Who Stole More than Christmas.
The Salvation Army are seeing record number of families asking for help this Christmas season. But what else would one expect when a record number of Americans are on food stamps and an employment participation rate at a dismal 63.6%. Obama and Democrats continue to tour the faux-unemployment rate of 7.7%. More and more Americans are dropping out of the work force, including 350,000 in November alone. All this while Obama claims there is a job recovery without any recovery. Obama and Democrats can spin the economic numbers and situation all they want, Americans know the truth and their circumstances are bleak. At some point Americans will wake up and realize that GWB is not to blame and Obama is. When that occurs there will be hell to pay by Democrats.
Officials with the Salvation Army say they’re seeing a record number of families asking for help this holiday season.
Nearly 18,000 families have registered for Christmas assistance in the last month. That number has grown by 2,500 since last year, breaking the 2009 record.

With all this suffering going on in the US and we have liberals that are more concerned with their liberal ideology than helping those who are in need. This clearly is a mental defect of liberals and shows just how little they care about those who are in desperate need. Their hate so consumes them that they would rather harm the people who are aided by The Salvation Army because of their liberal political ideology. This was never more evident than the screwballs at UC Berkeley who are calling for students on campus to ban the Salvation Army citing their alleged homophobic practices. But these liberal college kids would be the first to be looking for a government hand out at tax payers expense.
Barack Obama has not just stole Christmas, he has stole our children and grand children’s future with the unsustainable debt.
Jennifer Phillips, an Angry Elf From the South Pole Threatened to Smuggle in Gun and Kill South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley … Arrested for Threatening Govt Official
MOONBAT ALERT: Jennifer Phillips can expect a lump of coal in her Christmas stocking this year and was just put on Santa’s naughty list …
46 year old Jennifer Phillips was arrested Tuesday and charged with threatening a government official. Phillips was a volunteer with the Santa’s Workshop program at the Liberty Elementary school where Haley was scheduled to speak. Phillips made the following comment to a volunteer prior to Haley’s appearance, “I’m going to smuggle a gun in and kill this Governor.” So much for ‘Tis the season to be Jolly. I am thinking that some one has forgot the “reason for the season”. What kind of an idiot makes such a comment while volunteering among children? A moonbat Leftist of course.
A woman has been arrested and charged with making a threat against South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley.
Liberty police say 46-year-old Jennifer Phillips was arrested Tuesday and charged with threatening a public official.
A district spokesman says Phillips – who was a volunteer with the Santa’s Workshop program at the school – made the remark to a school employee around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
SHE WAS AN ANGRY ELF
I am going to go out on a limb and say, one, Jennifer Phillips did not vote for Nikki Haley in the 2012 elections and two, this will be the last time she is ever allowed to volunteer in a school. As Wil Farell said in Elf, she must have been an angry elf.
The news traveled fast to parents, who talked about the incident as they picked their children up Tuesday afternoon. “You have to watch what you say,” said grandparent Judy Hood. “It is a little scary.”
Parent Joe Whelchel said, “I wish they would have a little bit more strict guidelines about who’s with kids here. They should screen for character.”

I guess there really is no honor among thieves …
As if the victims of Hurricane Sandy have not gone through and lost enough. Now it is being reported that storm victims in New York City and some of the most devastated areas have had their homes looted as well over Thanksgiving. One of the areas reporting looting is the Breezy Point section of Queens, NY that was one of the most devastated areas where hundreds of people lost their homes. Now we learn that others were robbed and looted on Wednesday or Thursday when many residents were away for the holiday.
Some residents of a New York City neighborhood that suffered fire and flooding during Superstorm Sandy say thieves looted their damaged houses over Thanksgiving.
The New York Post reports that thieves struck at least three homes in the Breezy Point section of Queens.
The Post reports that there were 14 home break-ins in Breezy Point from Nov. 12 to Nov. 18. There were none during the same period last year.
Barack Obama’s 2012 Thanksgiving Message and Once Again Forgets to MakeReal Mention of God, Or Thank Him … You are No Lincoln
It’s an Obama world where it appears that thanking God on Thanksgiving is not an option or even a thought.
President Barack Obama released his Thanksgiving Day message Thursday and a once again he forgot to thank God. Interesting. Obama mentioned the right of freedom of religion and to worship as you please, but no reference to God, except “Because there but for the grace of God go I.” He went on to say that, “no dream is too big if they’re willing to work for it.” Work for it? What message has Obama ever sent that people should work hard for things? Instead he penalizes and punishes those who have worked hard and made something of themselves. Obama looks to tax the producers, the small business owner and redistribute their money to the moochers.
Today we give thanks for blessings that are all too rare in this world. The ability to spend time with the ones we love; to say what we want; to worship as we please; to know that there are brave men and women defending our freedom around the globe; and to look our children in the eye and tell them that, here in America, no dream is too big if they’re willing to work for it.
We’re also grateful that this country has always been home to Americans who see these blessings not simply as gifts to enjoy, but as opportunities to give back. Americans who believe we have a responsibility to look out for those less fortunate – to pull each other up and move forward together.
But did Obama really forget? Hardly, as noted by the Gateway Pundit, this is the fourth year in a row where Obama neglected to thank God during a Thanksgiving Day address. However, Obama had no problem while campaigning and BS’ing the American people to thank God and say God bless America. What I think I find most disturbing is Obama’s ends justify the means approach. Obama and his minions just ran one of the most heinous, divisive and vicious campaigns where they lied about their opponent and even accused him of murder. Obama won reelection based on class warfare and dividing black from white, rich from poor, old from young, union from non-union and now President Obama. The most polarizing and divisive president ever now wants every one to come together as if he never ignited the fuse. This is the sign of a great politician who knows how to win an election at all cost and a lousy leader who just keeps individuals at each others throats. America has many things to be thankful for, Barack Obama is not one of them.
That’s especially important this year. As a nation, we’ve just emerged from a campaign season that was passionate, noisy, and vital to our democracy. But it also required us to make choices – and sometimes those choices led us to focus on what sets us apart instead of what ties us together; on what candidate we support instead of what country we belong to.
Thanksgiving is a chance to put it all in perspective – to remember that, despite our differences, we are, and always will be, Americans first and foremost.
There is a reason why Lincoln was a great president and Obama, not even close. Take a look at the Presidential proclamation from Lincoln in 1863 (VIDEO) and see if you cannot tell the difference. And if you cannot, you are hopeless. Check out what a great president said when division was wrought upon the United States rather than division from a president.
In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict, while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the field of peaceful industry to the national defense have not arrested the plow, the shuttle, or the ship; the ax has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than theretofore. Population has steadily increased notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege, and the battlefield, and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently, and gratefully acknowledged, as with one heart and one voice, by the whole American people. I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.
UPDATE I: Obama calls for religious freedom as Christians and Catholics accuse him of a war on religion.
Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving from Scared Monkeys.
On this day of family, friends, football and food, please take the time to recall and express the things that you are thankful for. We all know that not everything goes perfect, we do not always get what we want and sadly there are those loved ones that are no longer with us this year. Through all the joy and hardship, we always find things that we can be thankful for. Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving, God Bless!!!
We bring back a Scared Monkeys classic video circa 2009 … Sleuth and Thank you for being a friend
There may be no greater time than to remember President Abraham Lincoln’s Thanksgiving Proclamation to the United States in 1863. There is a reason why certain presidents are considered great men.
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with the blessings of fruitful years and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the Source from which they come, others have been added which are of so extraordinary a nature that they can not fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever-watchful providence of Almighty God.
In the midst of a civil war of unequaled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign states to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere, except in the theater of military conflict, while that theater has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union.

And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners, or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it, as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes, to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility, and union.
