Next up, New Years
Now that all the Christmas celebration is behind us, it is time to look forward to the next party on the horizon, New Years.
Shaking off the last of the tinsel and stocking the fridge with beer. I am looking forward to kissing 2006 goodbye once and for all.
I won't reminisce about the events of '06, because to do so would send us all into a pit of deep depression and I do not want to do that. Suffice it to say 06 sucked in every way except the election which was the most positive event of the entire year, thats not saying much, but it's all we have to rejoice in.
Lets hope the year 2007 brings us the luck of the number 7 because we need some luck after all the misery '06 wrought.
Some how we must regain control of the currently out of control Federal Government and their propensity to spend money we do not have on a war we do not want. That is the single objective that could return economic prosperity to our once thriving nation.
Right now we will be ringing in the New Year with thousands of people unable to pay their bills or simply feed their families, foreclosure rates are skyrocketing, people are dying right here in America because they feel they have lost their direction on the American way, suicide is up, violent crime is up, these are immediate things needing immediate attention. We cannot afford to have a losing war in a loser country right now, tighten up our borders here and fight the terrorists here, where we can see them more clearly out in the open, not over in some place you cannot tell terrorist from tailor.
There is a lot of work to be done in the year ahead and the leadership in DC is not up to the task. Sure we will have a Democratically controlled congress, but many of the old guard is still there and will be for years to come, we must keep the freedom ball rolling and not let it stop.
We must create our own luck.
