If you think I'm tough on religious leaders, check out what I wrote about Santa Claus in my HinesSight blog post, "Santa Claus must be impeached."
I credit my wife, Laurel, with coming up with the concept for our 2019 Christmas letter. Then I researched the grounds for impeachment and came up with four excellent reasons.
There are more, of course. For example, I deeply doubt that Santa Claus is abiding by minimum wage and workplace safety laws in his present-making workshop staffed by elves.
Happily for Santa the minimum wages laws don’t apply to elves. Nor health and safety at work laws. It’s the only way he can keep up with the huge demand

Serious charges indeed but I'd give him a pass. Well,
maybe a warning. He's clearly showing his age.
There are a few non-pc items of note:
* lumps of coal (environmental pollutant)
* excessive ho-ho'ing (risque)
* red hat (style demerit only)
and last but not least:
* crowned patron saint of dept. stores (corporate toady)
Say it ain't so, Santa !

How is Santa cooking with the Amazon model. Surprised he isn't out of business

OMG! Too funny!
Sad news about ZuZu. ☹️ But happy to hear Mooka has joined your loving family. 🙂
This is one of the funniest Santa skits I’ve ever seen (SNL with Ryan Gosling): https://youtu.be/CkrpvCs-kfE

Well Santa has not been impeached but the president has.
