What Is Torture?

A few things come to mind. Cutting out someone's tongue, pulling out someone's finger nails, non stop beatings or whippings, etc....If you thought of similar things, you'd be wrong. Listening to Christmas music is torture. Well, according to democrats it is.

LONDON, Dec. 24 (UPI) -- Forcing store clerks to listen to the same holiday music over and over could be akin to torture and should change, a British noise pollution group said.

The UK Noise Association and labor unions are suggesting legal action on behalf of store employees who listen to endless looped recordings of holiday music, the Observer said Sunday.

Strange how an outside group always comes in to tell the listeners how they feel about the music being played where they work. Not one word about complaints being issued by the workers themsleves. The complainers who wrote this article are probably aetheists or non-Christian, otherwise they would have nothing to say about the great Christmas carols. They would keep their stupid mouths shut.

Another form of control. An outsider stating how a whole group of workers feels without a survey to find out how the workers feel about the carols. We have too many controllers in this country running around hither and yon deciding independently what should and should not take place. One person's idea is certainly not always the other person's idea. Time to butt out of other people's business.

First of all, they should not call CHRISTMAS Carols "Holiday" music.
Heaven forbid the word Christ be included in their vocabulary. The Christmas Carols might touch their hearts and someone may turn to God instead of devoting all their time to "Holiday" shopping.

Torture? Torture? I've heard of torture all my life but NEVER have I heard that Christmas carols could possibly be torture to anyone. What makes the decision-makers think that all the workers in a place see it as torture. Who knows? Some of the workers may be Christian and enjoy the Christmas carols and some may not be Christian and still enjoy the music.

I'm 17 and I work at a store, and I must admit that the music gets quite annoying. Not torture, but enough to want it to change. And did anyone see the word democrat in that article? I don't believe it was. So, how could he know that democrats have this position? And if a group in the UK did this, how did democrats influence it? They're not british. Hmmm... Interesting.
