Joe Biden Should Have Taken Oath of Office on the Constitution, Not the Bible

Joe Biden’s inauguration was an unqualified success, his acceptance speech was universally praised for its spirit of inclusiveness, harmony and bipartisanship. The event which was scaled-down due to the coronavirus pandemic and threats of violence from Trump cultists struck all the right tones and it resonated with a public desperate for a semblance of normality.

The only point of controversy was the impossibly large Bible that Joe Biden used to take his oath of office. Trump supporters, who see a conspiracy theory in everything, suggested that the several-inches thick Bible, a Biden family heirloom, was Masonic or associated with an Illuminati conspiracy.

I’m not going to waste any bandwidth explaining the Masonic and Illuminati conspiracies, just know that they are as far-fetched as the QAnon conspiracy theories.

Biden has used that humongous Bible every time he has been sworn in as senator and vice-president. It’s not a Masonic, Illuminati or Satanic Bible, it’s a Douay-Rheims Bible, an English translation of a Latin Bible.

I take exception with the fact that elected officials in a secular democracy take an oath of office by placing a hand on a Bible. Elected officials should simply raise their hands when taking an oath of office, or pace a hand on the Constitution.

Oregon School District Bans Santa Claus

“In a move to show respect to all religions, a school district in Oregon has decided to ban religious-themed decorations in the classrooms during the holidays.

The decision, which was revealed on Tuesday, bans decorations with images such as Santa Claus, according to KATU.
The school district released a notice to staff:

“You may still decorate your door or office if you like, but we ask that you be respectful and sensitive to the diverse perspectives and beliefs of our community and refrain from using religious-themed decorations or images like Santa Claus.”

Fox News

Santa Claus is as American as apple pie, baseball, cheating on your taxes and fast food, for St. Nick to be banned from a school district is a sign of the decline of Western Civilization.

Santa is a secular not a religious symbol, in fact the greed that he represents unites Americans of every religious background. Santa represents the mindless consumerism that’s made America the greatest nation on Earth.

An attack on Santa is an attack on the Constitution, the flag and the American way of life, and it’s incumbent upon every red-blooded American to fight against these commies who are trying to ban Santa from our public schools.

If I had children enrolled in this Oregon school district I would protest by dressing them as Santa every day until the un-American ban is repealed.

This time the politically-correct idiots have gone too far, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the school officials are tarred, feathered, and beaten to a pulp by righteous patriots.

Hillary Clinton Doll Dangling From Metal Hook in Store! Free Speech or Hate Speech?


“A Hillary Clinton doll dangles from a metal hook next to a `Make America Great Again` sign inside the Pleasant View Orchards store in Smithfield. It has some customers up in arms, but owner Anthony Polseno says it`s not meant to offend.

When word spread about the doll, it led some people to take to the internet describing their outrage through reviews. One saying in part, `having a doll of Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State with a noose around her neck? that is not only so disrespectful but misogynistic and hateful.`

Polseno, who`s run the orchard for 50 years, says the doll was a gift from a customer. But, the complaints started before the Clinton doll, they began when he first hung his Donald Trump `Make America Great Again` sign. “

ABC News

Poleseno`s Hillary doll dangling from a metal hook next to a “Make America Great Again” sign in his business may be in bad taste, but it`s an example of constitutionally protected free speech.

If a customer is offended by the Hillary doll, instead of getting his panties in a twist; he should simply not patronize Pleasant View Orchards.

In my opinion a Hillary Clinton doll dangling from a metal hook is a vivid example of Making America Great. Political discourse whether it takes the form of speech, performance art or an effigy of a politician dangling from a metal hook is democracy in action. I thank God we live in a free country where we won`t be fined or jailed for ridiculing or criticizing politicians.

I wish I had a Hillary Clinton doll that I could dangle from my front porch; the humiliated political hack needs to be reminded that she is despised by most Americans.

Hillary if you`re thinking of running again in 2020, please take a good look at your likeness dangling in this patriot`s place of business.
