Just so you know, I still buy a real tree every year for Christmas
Uh, oh. The war on Christmas has begun again. This time with some shady dealings on the part of the Obama Administration and the new institution of a “Christmas Tree tax.” Dun, dun, dun…
But don’t worry, David S. Addington of the Heritage Foundation is on the case. Of course, he fails to mention in his blog post that broke this non-story that Christmas tree growers themselves lobbied to have this 15 cent per tree fee imposed on them in order to fund a Christmas tree ad campaign to promote the buying of fresh trees over fake ones.
And for the record, anytime a former Dick Cheney aid like Addington writes that the Government should steer clear of getting involved in private businesses, an Angel gets killed by a Halliburton security contractor.
