Before we get started, let's make it clear that TKC doesn't go in for any of that "War On Christmas" nonsense because it's cynical rubbish propagated by nincompoops who communicate with the American public mostly by way of offering toxic rhetoric to the least common denominator without caring that the plebs might actually risk alienating family & friends by mindlessly repeating talking points regarding issues that are mostly controlled by a handful of disconnected rulers.
Nevertheless . . .
It's hard not to notice a myriad of bad news for the holiday season and the nation getting increasingly angry as we slouch toward midterm elections and the red wave promise of more political upheaval.
And so . . .
We simply offer best holiday wishes and a brief insight . . .
HAVING A MERRY CHRISTMAS MIGHT BE THE MOST REWARDING ACT OF POLITICAL PROTEST FOR AMERICANS RIGHT NOW!!!
At the very least, it appeals to our cynical nature that genuine happiness and joy have turned into subversive attitudes which challenge the status quo that seems to benefit by inflicting emotional turmoil on their followers . . . At the very least it's just a bit of an incentive to avoid walking around like ridiculously bummed out emo music fan.
Here's our argument . . .
Our progressive friends want to paint their right-wing opposition as angry and vengeful fascists who seek to overthrow Democracy by way of
panty raid insurrection and surprisingly effective racist whisper campaigns.
Meanwhile . . .
Of course we know that a great many conservatives mistakenly believe their progressive opposition is comprised of nothing more than communist operatives who hate the baby Jesus and spend Christmas plotting to hand the nation over to the Chinese or ghoulish billionaires . . . Whoever pays the lower price because capitalism must also be destroyed.
And so . . .
Celebrating a Merry Christmas in Kansas City with family, friends and a nice meal contradicts so many disgusting culture war tropes that only serve to incite unproductive partisan hate and subsequent gridlock along with the tragic misconception that people actually care what Anderson Cooper & Tucker Carlson say when the truth is that most of us are just watching for the lulz.
Accordingly . . .
We share just a bit more of our favorite TKC links for today because we probably won't update any time soon . . .

Tens of thousands of people in the U.S. won't be spending the holidays with their families but will instead be stuck in isolation after they contracted Covid-19 during the surge of the omicron variant of the coronavirus. After scientists at the University of California, San Francisco, confirmed on Dec.
Still have a few (or a majority of) things to get on your holiday shopping list? Or, are you trying to plan when you can make that last grocery store run to grab something just in case?
In uncertain times, there's a lot to be said for Christmas traditions. Tastes and smells, like familiar tunes, can instantly transport you back to childhood. Food matters, especially at Christmas - and tradition is part of the reason why it packs such a punch. Let's start with the stocking.
And just for the record . . .
