Last month, Chad Eric Donley wrote letters concerning myths relating to Christmas. Last week, my good friend William Van Amber Fields wrote a letter thanking Mr. Donley, and noting that I had written a letter concerning the time of the year of Yeshua’s birth.

(BPT) - While election politicking dominated the top 10 searches of 2012, this year people were a little starry-eyed when it comes to online searching. Miley Cyrus (No. 1) came into our lives like a wrecking ball and dethroned Kim Kardashian (No. 2) to become Yahoo's most searched person in 2013.

(StatePoint) While the latest video game can make a big hit, the most meaningful gifts are often ones that help those in need. The holidays are the perfect time to give a charitable gift that could make a profound difference in someone’s life.

This is the darnedest thing I have ever seen. We elect a guy who refuses to execute his responsibilities as president — twice; Syria, punt to Congress; the economy, punt to Bernanke; religion, punt to Islam; abortion, punt to Planned Parenthood; jobs, punt to unions; race, punt to Al Sharpton; health care, punt to Nancy Pelosi; national defense, punt to Vladimir Putin; nuclear proliferation, punt to Iran and North Korea; human rights, punt to Castro or to any tyrant as narcissistic as Obama.

President Obama has expressed outrage at the killing of innocent children during the chemical bombing in Syria that was launched by their own government. And he has the right to be, as should all of us.

As unpalatable as it was to many blind patriots, Russian President Putin’s message in the New York Times editorial was accurate in his criticism of America’s destructive foreign policy and Obama’s polemic quest to bomb and plunder Syria.

Last week, the New York Times published an op-ed titled “Overpopulation is Not the Problem,” written by University of Maryland associate geography and environmental systems Erle C. Ellis.

After President Obama sets up Congress to be the fall guy in Syria, he goes to Sweden and says to an interviewer, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line,” and “My credibility is not on the line — the international community’s credibility is on the line.” So now it’s the fault of Congress, the international community and the world.

Last week, comprehensive immigration reform was all but dead. A debate about Syria, an unanticipated distraction, promised to eat up more time from an already short legislative calendar that will face major hurdles on the budget, the debt ceiling and Obamacare.

Before we declare war on Syria, we should know who and what our enemy is. Muslims are ruled by a totalitarian theocratic political and military system, established in and governed by Shariah law. This theocracy’s stated constitution is its holy books, the Quran and Hadiths.

This year’s high school freshmen were barely walking when the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers fell and a plane crashed into the Pentagon 12 years ago today. Some middle schoolers weren’t even born yet.

For those of us who grew up during the Vietnam years — and especially for those who fought in the 20-year-long war — the prospect of possible United States involvement in the Syrian civil war is chilling. In my lifetime, the U.S. has been part of at least 10 armed conflicts, some of which, like Vietnam and Somalia, were poorly thought out and even more poorly executed.

I've been surfing the web, trying to make sense of the debate over intervening in Syria. Here are a couple of suprising turns of events I've come across plus some interesting summaries:

The United States Senate took a crucial step Wednesday toward authorizing a punitive strike on Syria but deep reluctance was evident in the House, where lawmakers questioned whether the U.S. was in danger of being drawn into another Middle East war.

What may have started as a secular-motivated uprising for democracy in Syria has now clearly transformed into a full-blown Islamist revolution where all ethno-religious minorities are being targeted for extermination in Syria, including Muslim Kurds, Muslim Alevis and Syrian Christians (Armenian, Greek Orthodox, Assyrian, others). It is proven that these Syrian rebels are linked to al-Qaida.

The question of the day: What to do about Syria?
Saturday, September 15, 2012 12:00 am
Just days before the nation went into its annual "We will never forget" 9/11 memorial ceremonies, the federal government demonstrated how little concern it has for its citizens' safety and how little it learned from the World Trade Center tragedy 11 years ago that left 3,000 Americans dead.

Every once in a while, I have this strange urge to cut loose on multiple topics. I call it the combo column.

I surely hope Mr. Van Amber Fields responds to Ms. Lasher's
letter, "Ms. Lasher comments on Mr. Van Amber Fields' letter"
(Sept. 29), for he is much more eloquent than I.
