    One time I was being lectured about gun control at a restaurant by my mother-in-law while I had a Glock 19 on my ankle. That was pretty cool.

    I get a free pass from the inlaws concerning hunting because I bowhunt. But my wife's side of the family are liberal, intolerant and closed minded. I really fight to keep my mouth closed most of the time around them. I spoke up once concerning O and I got hammered pretty hard.

    'Jingle Bells' rooted in racism, Boston University professor says “Jingle Bells,” one of the most well-known Christmas carols in the world, is now being called racist. A Boston University theater professor claims the Christmas carol has a “problematic history” because it was originally performed to make fun of African Americans. “The legacy of ‘Jingle Bells’ is one where its blackface and racist origins have been subtly and systematically removed from its history,” Kyna Hamill, a BU theater historian, wrote in her “Theatre Survey” research paper on the story of “Jingle Bells.” SNOWFLAKES AT CHRISTMAS? SOME UNIVERSITIES OFFER NO SAFE SPACE FOR SANTA – OR JESUS “Although ‘One Horse Open Sleigh,’ for most of its singers and listeners, may have eluded its racialized past and taken its place in the seemingly unproblematic romanticization of a normal ‘white’ Christmas, attention to the circumstances of its performance history enables reflection on its problematic role in the construction of blackness and whiteness in the United States,” she wrote. Hamill started researching the history of the famous Christmas carol after a so-called “Jingle Bells War” – a dispute between two towns, Medford, Mass. and Savannah, Ga. – that claim to be the birthplace of the song written by James Pierpont. “Its origins emerged from the economic needs of a perpetually unsuccessful man, the racial politics of antebellum Boston, the city’s climate, and the intertheatrical repertoire of commercial blackface performers moving between Boston and New York,” Hamill wrote. The traces of blackface minstrel origins can be found in the music and lyrics, as well as the “elements of ‘male display,’ boasting, and the unbridled behavior of the male body onstage,” the author wrote. The song’s lyrics, which Hamill adds “display no real originality,” and reference things like “Miss Fanny Bright” and “dashing through the snow” connect the song to blackface dandy, according to the research paper. “Words such as ‘thro,’ ‘tho’t,’ and ‘upsot’ suggest a racialized performance that attempted to sound ‘southern’ to a northern audience,” Hamill wrote. “As I mentioned in my article, the first documented performance of the song is in a blackface minstrel hall in Boston in 1857, the same year it was copyrighted,” Hamill told Fox News. “Much research has been done on the problematic history of this nineteenth-century entertainment.” Hamill added that her research has been public for two years and has nothing to do with Christmas. Jingle Bells was the first song ever broadcast from outer space in 1965, as reported by History.com. The research paper was widely panned on social media with Twitter users calling it liberal overreach. “Jingle Bells is racist, White Christmas is racist, Baby it’s Cold Outside is sexist. What the hell happend to the America I grew up in where people didn’t wake up every day trying to find something to be offended by?” one Twitter user wrote. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/12/15/jingle-bells-rooted-in-racism-boston-university-professor-says.html

    Gotcha, +2 for putting the definition next to acronym. It's hard to read some forums (gun forums) where a lot of abbreviations and acronyms are used. BTF (brass to face) :co: p.s. Did I sound smarter? Don't answer that.

    (CNN) — White House press secretary Sarah Sanders isn't a big fan of the media. Which is, of course, her right. The relationship between any White House and any press corps tasked with covering that White House is almost always fraught and fractious. But, on Monday, Sanders made an accusation that went way, way beyond the pale of the usual give and take between White House and press corps. Here's what she said: "There's a very big difference between making honest mistakes and purposefully misleading the American people. Something that happens regularly. You can't say -- I'm not done. You can't say that it's an honest mistake when you are purposely putting out information that you know to be false or when you're taking information that hasn't been validated, that hasn't been offered any credibility and that has been continually denied by a number of people including people with direct knowledge of an incident. This is something that -- I'm speaking about the number of reports that have taken place over the last couple of weeks. I'm simply stating that there should be a certain level of responsibility in that process." http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/11/politics/sarah-sanders-press-briefing-analysis/index.html She got game! Always entertaining. Never backs down.
