Is This a Great Country or What?
Merry Christmas from the Westboro Baptist Church!
“You’d better watch out, get ready to cry/ You’d better go hide, I’m telling you why/
’cuz Santa Claus will take you to hell.
“He is your favorite idol, you worship at his feet,/ but when you stand before your God He won’t help you take the heat.
“So get this fact straight: you’re feeling God’s hate,/ Santa’s to blame for the economy’s fate,
“Santa Claus will take you to hell.”

Just what we needed: more competing economic theories. Phelps and the Westboro Baptist Church claim that idol worship of Santa is "to blame for the economy's fate." But Daniel Henninger of The Wall Street Journal claims that the US is ruining its own economy because "we are a nation whose people can't say Merry Christmas."
Damned if you, damned it you don't.
