New Year, and Hoping It’s a Happy One

Or hoppy, or maybe barleyish.

Definitely will be winey!!

Anyway, glad to be back from a hiatus involving family, holidays, and some needed contemplation about The Year of the Dumpster Fire. Frankly, I am of the opinion that the Good Lord doesn’t give me anything I can’t handle, so I was able to shrug the small stuff. Unlike most years when everything is small stuff, 2016 actually brought some big stuff out of it’s grab bag. We witnessed one of the weirdest elections this country has ever held, witnessed the split of a political party, witnessed the passing of some culture icons, and witnessed the complete breakdown of unity among Americans of different “races” (intentional quotes). Serious WTF moments right there. I’m not one to get all weepy at the passing of a celebrity, but some were responsible for shaping culture (whether positive or negative is irrelevant), and others left their mark for being far more human than the rest of us. This presidential election was like sunshine, exposing unsavory undercurrents from all sides that hopefully will be disinfected. As to the racial discord, THAT I do get weepy over. And by weepy, I mean ragey. I grew up in a time when EVERYONE aspired to live by Martin Luther King, Jr.’s words and took them to heart. His memory and his work have been sullied by people who foment hatred for money and fame. As to politics, they still make strange bedfellows. And stranger offspring.

Anyway, here’s to a better year, one filled with promise of good things, interspersed with just enough bad to make us appreciate the good. You can’t have one without the other, after all. I may be a Pollyanna, but after 2016, I need to be a bit more realistic 😉

  1. First, my gruit typically hath no hops.

    But more to the point, the political division will continue to be divisive so long as fools continue to support and fund the dividers. The problem is that too many of their supporters are so uneducated, rather indoctrinated, that they refuse to look in the mirror to see that they are the cause not the victim.

  2. AGGGIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! Welcome back, hon! I had stopped stopping by because I’d thought the Jedi filthy had finally managed to slip in under the cover of darkness and poison the alcohol supply. As the great prophet and philosopher Tim Conway once said, “When you’re lying flat on your back, there’s only one way to look… and that’s UP!”

    2017 and the years ahead have great potential, as long as the anti-American, traitorous fuckweasels aren’t given an inch of ground, an ounce of oxygen or a morsel of sustenance to perpetuate their Long March towards the destruction of western culture. Fight them at every turn and use their own playbook against them. Kick them in the teeth every chance we get and don’t let the boot off their neck until every last one of them is utterly defeated.

    Well, I’ll leave it at that. (I could feel the RCOB rising, so I’ll stop before I end up with a 4,000-word, profanity-laced diatribe that’d make Satan blush in shame.)

    It’s great to have you back on the Intarwebtubes! *HUG*
