"War on Christmas" Crowd Demand, Commercialize Christmas or else!!!

If retailers don't find a way to turn consumer products into the blessings of Christmas, the American Family Association wants to vilify and run them out of the marketplace.

If you thought the petting bickering by Republican candidates for president was ridiculous, see what conservative voters are spending their days fuming over. It isn't Scott Walker, government secrecy, money from billionaires, corruption, cronyism, jobs or health care, that's for sure:
American Family Association: Criteria - AFA reviewed up to four areas to determine if a company was "Christmas-friendly" in their advertising: print media (newspaper inserts), broadcast media (radio/television), website and/or personal visits to the store. If a company's ad has references to items associated with Christmas (trees, wreaths, lights, etc.), it was considered as an attempt to reach "Christmas" shoppers.

If a company has items associated with Christmas, but did not use the word "Christmas," then the company is considered as censoring "Christmas."
What seems like an incredible joke is an actual conservative Republican tea party distraction from the real issues their party refuses to solve. 

Isn't it time we all commercialize and exploit the spirit of Christmas gift giving with a little crass intimidation?
