Well, this gentleman to our left doesn't want to leave the "Christ" out of any title designating time off from school.

If anyone's ever looking to argue that the Florida Senate wastes its time on things that aren't relevant to Florida, or Planet Earth, point to Senate Bill 1136, submitted today by Sen. Stephen Wise.

Apparently what really needs to be changed in the Sunshine State is that period of heathen-time all the children get off from school in December. You may know it as "Winter Break."

Here's the entire text of the bill that made it from holier-than-thou Wise's brain to the Florida Senate:

Each school district shall refer to the period during which school is not in session and which includes Christmas Day as Christmas Break rather than Winter Break.

While we're at it, we'd like the Senate to consider forcing school districts to refer to "Winter Break" as "Festivus Break," May 5th as "Cinco de Mayo," and for January 23, 2012, let's call that one "农历新年."

Thanks for that.

After having to deal with the Repukelicans in this state, "Jesus fucking Christ" should be designated as the official state swear.

Pass some real legislation, you fucktards.

This reminds me of the dolt in the Arkansas House who got up during the debate on making English the official language of the Arky state and said:

"All I know is that, if English was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me." 

Right.

No matter that most of the founding fathers were deists and not christians, no matter that it was clearly intended that state and religion (as opposed to use of the word "god" on money and such) be kept separate for the good of all  people, no matter that politicians swear an oath to protect and defend the constitution, goobers like Sen. Wise and his fellow travelers will forever try to insidously inject their religious beliefs into the lives of true patriotic Americans. You are not a patriot if you are a lawmaker who contorts the plain meaning of the constitution, in context, just to suit your personal belief system.

Hanukkah begins at sunset on Tuesday, December 20, 2011, and ends at sunset on Wednesday, December 28, 2011.  Seems more appropriate to rename it Hanukkah Break.

It seems like merely a reversal of a previous politically correct law and all too typical of a a politician seeking something to do that won't make too many people mad.  At last he isn't trying to stick his hand in my pocket to benefit either his buddies or his poor pitiful ones.

Calling the winter break "Winter Break" is no more politically correct than calling the one in the spring "Spring break."  It is the break that happens in that particular season, dipshit.
