    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Heh, we have an annual Festivus meal where I work. Lots of good food, set up the pole, play the episode... We tend not to air grievances or have feats of strength as it is an office environment though.

    For the rest of us.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    It's from the sitcom "Seinfeld", a holiday invented by one of the quirky characters to protest the commercialism of Christmas.

    IIRC it was actually created by the family of one of the writers back in the sixties.
