Merry Christmas!!!!

I decided one of my new year's resolutions will be to keep this Blog up to date with my thoughts for the moment. So, even though it is December 29th, Merry Christmas anyway!!

It's not "happy Hannaka", or "have a warm winter soltice", or "Happy holidays" - this is an official government holiday in the congressional record books as Christmas! So, lets not pretend its anything else. 96% of the people in America celebrate Christmas to one extent or another, as evidenced by the Christmas shopping spree. Somehow we have gotten things backwards, its OK to offend over 90% of the population so you don't offend the other 10%, and if you asked the other 10% they probably don't care. Is this rational? No it is not - so I went out of my way to say Merry Christmas to as many people as I could this year. Merry Christmas!!!!!

Mutt-American and Proud of it!

I am PROUD to be Mutt-American!! My father is Irish and American Indian. My mother is Rusian Arminian. So, what am I? Am I Irish-American, Native Indian, Rusian-American, Arminian-American?? No, No, I am Mutt-American!! A symbol of the great melting pot, where American values are unique in the world and where the success of our republic shines across the world leading other nations to dream of freedom and a better life.

Sometimes, however I feel a little left out when people begin to talk about ther heretage as if it is superior, or superceeds, their American heretage. American history has been diluted into excessive focus upon "multiculturalism", to the detriment of our true beginnings. I am tired of it, and simply want to see people be proud of being an American, a Mutt-American.

I am sure many of you have a story to share, and to tell us why you are a Mutt-American. Let us hear from you, tell us why you are PROUD to be MUTT-AMERICAN! Give us your story, and we will listen with our hearts, sharing your personal Mutt-American experience.
