A woman was Christmas shopping with her two children.
After many hours of walking down row after row of toys and
After hours of hearing both her children asking for everything
They saw on those many shelves, she finally made it to the
Store elevator with her two children in hand.

She was feeling what so many of us feel during the holiday
Season time of year, getting that perfect gift for every
Single person on our shopping list, overwhelming pressure to
Go to every party, every housewarming, taste all the holiday
Food and treats, making sure we respond to
Everyone who sent us a card.

Finally the elevator doors opened revealing a crowd in the car.
She pushed her way in and dragged her two kids and all her
Bags of stuff in with her.

As the doors closed she couldn't take it anymore and blurted
Out, "Whoever started this whole Christmas thing should be
Found, strung up, and shot."

From the back of the car, a quiet calm voice responded,
"Don't worry, we've already crucified Him." The rest of the
Trip down was so quiet you could hear a pin drop.

Don't forget this year to keep the One who started this whole
Christmas thing in your every thought, deed, purchase, and
Word. If we all would just think how much better this world
Would be.

Jesus is the reason for the season. Wise men still seek Him.

Time flies when you're having fun, and all of a sudden it's our seventh Birthday!

Just as a child learns much in their seventh year of life, we have too.

We have learned to read between the lines, and many things are not as they appear. 

Right, Mr. Gahan?

We have learned the most important thing is to get the facts and numbers out to our readers.

We have the satisfaction of knowing that people are informed of the truth behind the lies, because we have taken the time and initiative to bring it forward.

We have made a difference - whether you agree with us or use our words as your daily humor - you have taken the time out of your life to read what we have to say.

Our motto has always been "if only one person reads what we have to say" we have done our job.

We still believe this...even today!

Our philosophy is "common sense" and seeing things as they really are, and doing things as they should be done.

We would like to thank all our readers for their positive emails and their continued support. It's great to know that so many people read our blog and support what we do.

At the same time, others have let us know that they think our views are muddled, mean spirited, or otherwise incorrect and some have called us racist.

And that's OK with us; we want to hear from everyone that has an intelligent comment about our blog,

We will continue to defend the little people, the working people, and the middle class who play by the rules and
pay their taxes.

We appreciate hearing from both political parties and R-o-g-e-r, we even enjoy your criticism, it's nice to be thought of and appreciated.

What's it like Roger to NOT have Price to bully or to write about?

"What's cooler than a new box of crayons for 2013-2014!"

To our Mayor, we promise to keep track of your lies and believe us, we haven't forgotten all those "campaign promises you lied" about....

Gahan, you really have put a "new meaning" to the words: Narcissistic, Liar, Phony, Delusional and a One Termer!

To our dysfunctional City Council, you know the campaign promises you didn't keep and the budget you never really balanced. You ARE the worse Council we have ever had in the history of New Albany.

We applaud Councilman Zurschmiede and Council woman Diane Benedetti and Council woman Shirley Baird for standing up to the new Gang of Six taking their attacks with a grain of salt. Maybe one day those "six ass kissers"of Gahan's, might learn what public service really is!

And a special thank you to our re-elected State Rep. Ed Clere for showing the progressives that the democrats continue to support him.

Oh let's not forget what we have learned from other blogs.

We have learned that Roger still lives in a fish barrel far away from the truth about New Albany, that certain people feel threatened by this little blog we call
Freedom Of Speech.

Many others have opened blogs to varying degrees of success.

We are sure others have discovered that it's not easy keeping a blog fresh and current.

New Albany is really a small town and while you are enjoying breakfast, lunch or dinner at the local bars or restaurants, people are listening to your conversation and taking notes.

Be careful, several memos and notes have been scanned and emailed to us.

As we know timing is very important in the blog business.

In closing we would like to pass on this "little bit" of information to a special person or two [No, Roger it's not you.]

We do know what you all are up to. And as they say: "every dog" has their day - some sooner than later!

As they say in the blog sphere, take care New Albany we are not going anywhere.

From all of us at Freedom Of Speech,  again thanks for your support during the past seven years and here's hoping for many more postings to come.

Party on little people, have a cold Bud Light on us.

Freedom Of Speech would like to thank the many local Democrats who refused to attend Councilman Dan Coffey's fundraiser last evening. It's time to send him a message loud and clear.
