National Christmas Tree Has Died Near White House -boehner snickers (added by me)By THE ASSOCIATED PRESSPublished: May 5, 2012 at 11:43 AM ET http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2012/05/05/us/politics/ap-us-odd-national-christmas-tree.html?_r=1&ref=news

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal officials say the National Christmas Tree planted near the White House a year ago has died and is being removed.

The National Park Service says the Colorado blue spruce died of "transplant shock." It came from a tree farm in New Jersey last year and was planted on the Ellipse just south of the White House in March 2011.

The tree replaced a tree that had stood on the Ellipse since 1978 but was destroyed by high winds in February 2011.

Workers are removing the dead tree Saturday. The National Park Service says it has already identified a Colorado blue spruce to replace the tree and will plant the new National Christmas Tree in October, just in time to be decorated for the holiday.

Who's on your side - Elizabeth Warren or Jamie Dimon?

The history of America is the history of “We the People” confronting corporate power and winning. In fact, the whole reason we started this country was because individuals and small businesses wanted to fight back against the dominant corporation of the day, the British East India Company.

Here’s a little history lesson you won’t see on Fox So-Called News…
