The War on Everything

Recent observers have noted that when someone does not say "Merry Christmas," the absence of a mention of the holiday must constitute a war on Christmas.  

Today, we got some greeting cards from the Nature Conservancy, along with the usual request for money.  When I opened the cards, I discovered, much to my horror, that they are completely blank inside.  Now, the Nature Conservancy is not normally considered to be a warlike organization.  But their failure to mention Christmas surely means that they have joined the war on Christmas.  What is worse -- far worse -- is the fact that their failure to mention anything must mean that they have declared war on everything.
