Hark, the herald heathen and pagan sings!

With Christmas waxing, Chanukah waning, and the Winter Solstice just past, I revisit an annual holiday tradition here at Left I on the News and bring you the real message of the season, courtesy of Jackson Browne's The Rebel Jesus:
We guard our world with locks and guns
And we guard our fine possessions
And once a year when Christmas comes
We give to our relations
And perhaps we give a little to the poor
If the generosity should seize us
But if any one of us should interfere
In the business of why they are poor
They get the same as the rebel Jesus
And if you don't think this isn't why the U.S. tries to crucify (both figuratively and literally) people like Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, you aren't paying attention.

Complete lyrics here.
