It’s Christmas crunchtime, 10 days left until Christmas! Which can mean only one thing at Nice Deb!

It’s time for my annual “A Very Perry Christmas” post!:

Yes I inflicted that on you in 2008, and 2007, too. Consider it a Christmas tradition.

Sign-o-The Times

This sign has been taken down since it made the local news in Colorado, and has been replaced by a sign that says, “Please help. We need firewood, propane and canned food”.

I hope the publicity brought them some relief. This is a terrible time of year to be homeless.

Colorado television station KRDO first reported on the sign, last week:

Newsbusters noted:

You probably didn’t hear about it because outside of two Colorado television stations nobody found this newsworthy.

By contrast, when word got out in March of a tent city in Sacramento, California, news media couldn’t get enough of the story.

See, they could pin the tent city in Sacramento on Bush, because it was so early on in Obama’s Presidency. Now –  not a peep from the national media.

Hat tip: Gateway Pundit.


Obama’s latest approval index rating is at an all time low, second day in a row.

It’s going to keep falling, too. More and more people are figuring out that a colossal mistake was made when Obama got elected.
