Did Little Jesus Believe In Santa Claus?

The question of whether little Jesus believed in Santa Claus has perplexed historians throughout the ages. 

In search of the answer, I visited internationally renowned professor and historian Willis Blunderfield. 

"Dr. Blunderfield, was little Jesus a believer in Santa Claus," I asked.

Sid's Gold Emporium - A Parable

2,000 years ago Sid had his famous Jerusalem superstore, The Gold Emporium. 

It was a place where the rich and the poor, the locals and the caravans came to do business.

For Sid bought, sold and traded gold, and his signs were everywhere, beckoning people to come!

Many years earlier, Sid had begun by saving his money to invest in his business and eking out profits, which he would put in a small vault.

But each year, as Sid became more successful, he put those profits in larger and larger vaults, until his current vault was the largest in Jerusalem.

And each day, he would proclaim, "I'm richer than I have ever been, but I will be richer tomorrow." 

Then one day, a profound event occurred, one that changed everything!

Irving's Famous Deli - A Parable

2,000 years ago, Irving had a chain of restaurants from Jerusalem to Nazareth, and from Haifa to Be'er Sheva known as Irving's Famous Deli.

His schedule was intense, and there came a time when Irving needed to travel for a month. He called in his two sons and daughter, telling them:

"I'm going to give each of you 10,000 shekels, and when I return, we will measure how wisely you invested that money."

The Great Pissing Contest

Genovia was desperate for a new president. The current one had failed miserably in dealing with the pandemic that swept the land, ignored the environment, hadn't paid his taxes and was buried in debts and litigation.

So in the time honored tradition among men, the next president would be selected by a pissing contest.

The men lined up on a pier overhanging Lake Woebegone, and began urinating with everything their beer had given them.

Selecting A New U.S. Supreme Court Justice

Dear Reader: President Trump and the Republican controlled Senate are selecting a new conservative Supreme Court justice just before the presidential election, thus taking that selection away from the Democrats in case they win the presidential election. President Trump will now have selected 3 of the 9 justices. He is under fire for repeatedly violating his oath of office, including threatening to stay in office should he lose the election. This is unprecedented in U.S. history. By stacking the Court, he may have a better chance to stay in office if his case goes to the Supreme Court, claiming the election was rigged against him.

The Democrats response has been to threaten to "pack" the Supreme Court, adding more justices than the 9 authorized under the law, if their presidential candidate is elected, and if they also elect enough senators to control the Senate. If implemented, this unfortunate approach would further undermine the Court.

What follows is a satirical email discussion I had with my dear friend Yanin Ontiveros, in which I use the Democrat's Supreme Court logic.

Defending The President of The United States

Dear Reader: In 1995, the man who is now President of The United States allegedly raped a woman, and last year while President, publicly insulted her appearance and claimed she is "not my type." She sued him for defamation (damages to her reputation). Unprecedented in U.S. history, the U.S. Attorney General decided the Federal Government should defend the President and at taxpayer expense. 

He is also attempting to substitute the U.S. Government as the defending litigant, because the President made those terrible comments while in office. If he succeeds, her case will be dismissed because the Federal Government can't be sued for defamation. 

What follows is an email discussion I had with my dear friend Yanin Ontiveros, who shared some business information with me that I set aside to address this issue. The following is our email discussion:

The King Of California

With such horrible unresolved issues confronting the U.S. and its largest state, California something had to dramatically change. And suddenly, change came!

Disgusted with the politicians, the people decided "anyone could do better" and by lottery, California selected a child to hold the new office of King or Queen, with each office holder being in charge for one year.

To my surprise, my seven-year-old grandson Ikaika won the lottery and prepared to take office.

Of course before he could serve, he had to get the permission of his parents and of his second grade school teacher.

A Strong Leader and a Man of Compassion

Dear Reader, This unfortunate story of the U.S. President actually happened and it violates the U.S. Constitution. It happened soon after the news-media reported the President had hid in a bunker underneath the White House to avoid peaceful demonstrators protesting police brutality.

To reestablish himself as a strong leader, ironically, he did what the demonstrators nationwide and worldwide are protesting against. After describing the President's role, I made it satire involving Jesus and sent it to my son Kyle, who like me is a long-time real estate investor, which became part of the satire for California has arbitrarily imposed severe restrictions on investors.

Whether the nation holds this President accountable for his illegal actions awaits to be seen.

"Yeah," he answered. "But no-one's seen him in 2,000 years, and the world is in a tremendous mess. Someone's got to do something about it."

The Birds & The Bees

Yesterday there was a tapping at my back door. As I opened the door, I saw 25 small sparrows standing on my lawn. No sparrow stood taller than 4 inches.

“I'm Lizzie,“ said a sparrow. “We want to know why you are feeding us breakfast pastry crumbs? Don’t you know you’re making us fat and sick?“

“Why did you stop feeding us healthy bread crumbs,“ she asked. “I’m sorry,“ I replied. "Recently I haven't eaten as wisely as I usually do."
