It’s the holidays again, and here I am contemplating my navel. This year has been horrible, and next year is likely to be worse. With so many sick and aging relatives, I expect bad news sometime in 2019. I don’t want to be specific, but the chances are high. I just wanted put it out there, so don’t expect me to be my frivolous, cynical self during the foreseeable future.
The good news is that there will be another Presidential election in two years. The bad news is that there are two years until the next Presidential election, and our amateur President has two more years to fuck up this country, and sabotage its future, before its people commit a further act of collective suicide and re-elect him. We have elected a senile President and nobody seems to admit it. At what point will someone invoke the 25th amendment? Unfortunately, he has fired all the adults in the room and is replacing them with sycophants.
Yes, there will be some good news this year. My niece will have a daughter in a few months, creating (hopefully) 5 great grandparents.
Hopefully, that will give me the will to survive this year.
