Happy New Year

January 1st, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

I probably said that last year too.  Wish that one had worked out better for you and the world in general.   The month before Christmas at least comes with some sparkly music that gets old quick.  But when the year gets old, they break out all the “Year that…” stuff and that can be a real downer.

A media favorite is always “Who Died in XXXX” and my view on that has changed as most on the list are now younger than me.  I don’t know whether to stick out my tongue out or cry.

Time’s man of the year was the Pope.  He has been a breath of fresh air for the Vatican.  As an economist he sucks; but nobody is perfect.  Not all money changers are bad, Your Holiness.

That dead list didn’t mention the First and Fourth Amendment dieing but they remain in critical condition.  Snowden showed us what government thinks of the Fourth Amendment.  Interpreting The Constitution these days is very inventive in our courts and legislatures.

I haven’t been writing much of late.  I’ve more and more thought I’ve little or anything original to say.  With poker blogs we could all have fun lying about our prowess or originality.  In the real world, things get lame a lot quicker.  I’d be terrified to write one of those prediction columns that also appear this time of year.  A year that is likely to be more out of touch with what I was taught were “The Values that make America Great” but are no longer politically correct.





I just wish Lucki Duck could get us better odds on that one so we could lay a bet on that.

Well, there you have it.  The only thing to like was throwing a link at a friend.  That’s still legal…I hope.

    Odds are 80% that it will be a Happy New Year, but only 50% of the time.
    Hope 2014 is better than 13…for both of us.
