Today the city of Baghdad held its first ever Christmas celebration this weekend, they even put up a billboard of Jesus Christ which, sadly here in PC America and Europe would never do.
BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- From a distance, it looks like an apparition: a huge multi-colored hot-air balloon floating in the Baghdad sky, bearing a large poster of Jesus Christ. Below it, an Iraqi flag. Welcome to the first-ever public Christmas celebration in Baghdad, held Saturday and sponsored by the Iraqi Interior Ministry. Once thought to be infiltrated by death squads, the Ministry now is trying to root out sectarian violence -- as well as improve its P.R. image.
The event takes place in a public park in eastern Baghdad, ringed with security checkpoints. Interior Ministry forces deployed on surrounding rooftops peer down at the scene: a Christmas tree decorated with ornaments and tinsel; a red-costumed Santa Claus waving to the crowd, an Iraqi flag draped over his shoulders; a red-and-black-uniformed military band playing stirring martial music, not Christmas carols.
On a large stage, children dressed in costumes representing Iraq's many ethnic and religious groups -- Kurds, Turkmen, Yazidis, Christians, Arab Muslims not defined as Sunni or Shiite -- hold their hands aloft and sing "We are building Iraq!" Two young boys, a mini-policeman and a mini-soldier sporting painted-on mustaches, march stiffly and salute. Even before I can ask Interior Ministry spokesman Major-General Abdul Karim Khalaf a question, he greets me with a big smile. "All Iraqis are Christian today!" he says.
Boy! This is something that Obama, Reid and the rest of the Libs didn't want you to see. God Bless the Iraqi people! (Children take part in a Christmas festival in Abu Nawas park in Baghdad December 20, 2008. (Reuters)REUTERS/Atef Hassan)

"COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Dr. Paul Grabb peered into the microscope at Sam Esquibel’s 3-day-old brain, set on removing a tumor that threatened the infant’s life. What the pediatric neurosurgeon saw made him spring back in shock.
As he surgically removed it, Grabb also found other partially formed appendages and what appeared to be ropes of an intestine tucked within the folds.
Sam survived the Oct. 3 brain surgery at Memorial Hospital for Children and is home with his parents and doing well. But his introduction to the world marks one of the strangest moments in medical history.
“It looked like the breach delivery of a baby,” the pediatric neurosurgeon said last week, “coming out of the brain.”
An exact diagnosis is unknown. The growth might have been a teratoma, a congenital brain tumor composed of foreign tissue such as muscle, hair or teeth. But such tumors typically are not as complex as a foot or hand.
It might have been a case of fetus in fetu, a developmental abnormality in which a fetal twin begins to form within another, but those have most often occurred in the torso and not the brain.
“You show those pictures (of Sam) to the most experienced pediatric neurosurgeons in the world, and they’ve never seen anything like it,” Grabb said."

While the Seattle metro area didn't get a flake of snow, heavy snow fell steadily to the north of Everett and from Tacoma south throughout Wednesday morning. Snohomish County, the Lake Stevens area, Lacey-Olympia and the Cascade foothills received several inches of snow.
Most school districts, including Seattle and Tacoma, have cancelled classes for the day, while others were delayed or reported bus changes."
But, but... I thought (college dropout) Al Gore said that we weren't suppose to have the worst cold front here in rainy and mild Washington State because the ice caps were melting and that they well be gone in five years. What a ass. I hope these snow storms across the country are Mother Natures way of showing people what a desperate, attention seeking idiot Al Gore and his green movement followers are.

An atheist sign criticizing Christianity that was erected alongside a Nativity scene was taken from the Legislative Building in Olympia, Washington, on Friday and later found in a ditch.An employee from country radio station KMPS-FM in Seattle told CNN the sign was dropped off at the station by someone who found it in a ditch."I thought it would be safe," Freedom From Religion Foundation co-founder Annie Laurie Gaylor told CNN earlier Friday. "It's always a shock when your sign is censored or stolen or mutilated. It's not something you get used to."The sign, which celebrates the winter solstice, has had some residents and Christian organizations calling atheists Scrooges because they said it was attacking the celebration of Jesus Christ's birth.
Whats funny is that the wicked witch of the NW aka Christine Gregoire is a Roman Catholic(Funny since she supports abortion which most Catholic are against, then again most liberals well say anything to get votes..). Even though most leftist like Gregoire are really Agnostic or Militant Atheist. Yes there is Freedom of Speech however this is Hate Speech. Funny since liberals love bringing up hate crimes and speech but when its against Christians its deemed fair and a part of the First Amendment. But this is not surprising from Washington State. A Priest friend of my grandmother said it best about Washington: "You have more people worshiping trees then they do God".
