Really? Rhode Island Governor Has To Defend A Holiday Tree In Statehouse
Really! Really? When I read this headline I thought to myself, “Give me a break.” Has it really come to this? The “holiday” tree in the Rhode Island Statehouse has been called into question. Apparently the reasoning with lawmakers is this. They are upset with the Governor’s decision to call the blue spruce erected in the Statehouse a “holiday tree” instead of a “Christmas tree” and believe the focus should be on feeding the poor. Hey you know what? You can call it a holiday tree, you can call it a Christmas tree AND you can still help the poor. Maybe the Governor called it a “holiday tree” to avoid all the hate that happens when Christmas trees go up anywhere nowadays. let’s talk about some of the more important issues in the world.
