A Somber Note
I usually don't go in for rite-wing paranoia and doom-saying, but I have to tell you flat out that I've got a very bad feeling about this coming year. There are some very sick and strange people in power in this country, and they're starting to do some very sick and strange things. I can't shake this suspicion that one year from today, our situation is going to be very different, so different that many Americans will look back on 2007 as the last "good" year.
The ridiculous dog-and-pony show of the "election" will be over, the Diebold Corporation will duly accord Hillary her pre-destined turn, and most likely we'll have our own female Stalin installing herself in the Oval Office, looking over her death lists and cackling with glee. Sometime over the next year, Jug-Ears and his little Jewish friends will almost certainly launch an unprovoked attack on Iran, and cut off a large part of the Western econmy's energy supplies, possibly contaminating a large part of the world's petroleum reserves with radioactivity, so who knows what effects that will have on us all? No, I mean really--no one knows what this mad Iran assault will do. That's what's so scary about it.
Folks, I think maybe you need to enjoy your Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. This may be the last "normal" (if that's the word) holiday season that Americans will know for a long time.
