2009 is almost here. Less than eight hours if you live on the West Coast, Five if you are out there in the East.
So do you wonder what the New Year will bring?
Will we solve the economic chaos created by the Conservatives & their Greedy Backers, or will we just muddle on through for another year, existing, but not gaining any ground?
Maybe we worry about how the world will look at the end of 2009, with all the environmental headaches we are facing, not to mention the human headaches, we create all on our own. You know, wars and sniping at each other, because we simply can’t leave well enough alone.
Do we have hope that Barack Obama will drastically change the shape of America, so we can continue to be at peace? Can he end the Iraqi Occuppation with honor and with success? How about Afghanistan, will more Canadian treasures be lost in that pit of American failure?
How about our Political issues, will Stephen Harper finally be turfed, or will enough Canadians buy into his lies and gimmicks to give him what he desperately wants, a mandate to destroy Canada?
Or do we shrug our shoulders, start thinking of how cold the champagne is in the fridge, and just huddle together, ignoring the world, and just worrying about our own little piece of the planet? Are we worrying about how we can afford a new car this year, or if we can still make the payments on the house?
It is a reflective time, and yet, I don’t know if we really mark the time anymore. Is it just another holiday, another excuse to drown our sorrows in booze, or to celebrate our successes?
Either way, 2009 will be interesting. America gets a new President, and George Bush will finally be gone, to tend to the cows on his ranch, and be out of everyone’s hair. Hopefully other’s that mimic him, that worship him like our Stevie Boy will suffer that same fate, sooner than later, but either way the coming year looks like it will be interesting.
A new election more than likely, unless the coalition happens, but that will have to wait till the end of January. For now, I think I’ll check on the wine, and just enjoy reaching another year.
HAPPY NEW YEARS TO EVERYONE, YES EVEN STEVIE BOY.
