As we draw the curtain on 2013 we are grateful for the fact that our particular part of the economy thrived even as record number of American are wore off than ever, losing not just their jobs, depleting their savings, losing their health insurance, their doctors and being threatened with fines unless they pay for worse insurance named after it's creator, ObamaCare.
But wait, there's more:
Looking over another poll from The Christian Science Monitor regarding the ten biggest stories of the year, we find floods in Colorado, tornados in Oklahoma, terrorism in Massachusetts, Edward Snowden’s revelations of widespread snooping on the American public by the National Security Agency, the demise of the Defense of Marriage Act, and the disastrous debut of the billion-dollar Obamacare web site.
In the same article, Bud Norman mentions some positive events:
... the escape of those young women in Ohio who had been held captive in a basement for years by a sex fiend, George Zimmerman’s escape from a politically correct lynch mob, the defeat of gun control legislation in Congress, and the brief partial-shutdown of the United States’ government ... and the year that a Louisiana duck-call entrepreneur got away with expressing unsanctioned opinions regarding sexuality, despite the outrage of all the right people
And as the year end, we are heartened by the saga of the shipload of Climate Warmers stuck in the Antarctic ice even as most of the MSM tries desperately to hide their objective ... to show that there's no ice at the South Pole because of your SUV. We blame George W. Bush’s diabolical climate change machine.
As we usher out the old year, let us pray that the New Year will be better, that the spectacular failure of ObamaCare will take the rest of the rotten, kleptographic neo-Fascist ideology that is Liberalism with it. Let us pray.
