A New Year’s Un-Party: What We Can Do Without

Confetti. Auld Langsyne. Party hats, noise makers and resolutions. That’s how a typical New Year’s celebration looks, right?

An ‘Un-Party’

Suggestion: instead of placing bets on how long that January 1 “resolution” will last, how ’bout a New Year’s un-party instead? What do I mean?

What We Can Do Without

Well, having observed the socio-political landscape for some time now, I’ve noticed a phenomenon that seems to have gained a foothold across the fruited plain: Things We Can Do Without.  My list has gotten longer and longer, exploding into a veritable series of “you’re kidding, right?” categories.  So here, in no particular order, is my wholly unscientific, purely subjective Short List of What We Can Do Without:

  • A U.S. “President” who runs around the world apologizing for America.
  • Patriots who tolerate a “president” who runs around the world apologizing for America.
  • Al Sharpton
  • Government fat-cats who view peon taxpayer’s sole purpose in life as padding their path to the public trough.
  • The NAACP.  Since this organization is based on skin color, why isn’t it “racist” by definition?  Why not a “NAAWP”?
  • Trillion$ of $ in national debt that no one $eem$ re$pon$ible for.  AKA: Blame the other guy.
  • Chris Matthews
  • A judiciary branch that thinks it’s God.  Plaintiffs who forum shop until they find a sympathetic judge to rule on their circumvent-the-will-of-the-people lawsuit du jour.
  • A “community organizer” camouflaged as a “chief executive.”
  • Motor-Voter – a Democrat brainchild designed to siphon votes into their camp while ramping up voter fraud and corruption.
  • Governor Inslee
  • People who are “offended” by the Invocation at public high school graduations.  If you don’t like it, kindly plug your ears.
  • Rabid, foaming-at-the-mouth libs, progressives, Dems and other Obama amours who bark incessantly about how  Conservatives are “hateful.”  Have they listened to Chris Matthews?   Bill Maher?  Rachel Maddow? Nancy Pelosi?
  • ACLUers who don’t have anything better to do than try to destroy the faith foundation that made America great.
  • “Media Matters.”  Are you kidding?
  • Confusion about, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”  Jesus didn’t say that.  Karl Marx did (in his 1875 Critique of the Gotha Program.)
  • The usual suspects who haven’t yet figured out that Americans still have a right to say “No.”  If you don’t like it, throw your own party.
  • Administrations that can’t seem to locate “terrorist” in the dictionary.
  • “Republicans” who keep coming up with new and creative ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
  • George Soros
  • Hyphenated-Americans.  If we can’t unite behind three American “colors” – Red, White, and Blue – then why not everyone jump on the hyphenated band wagon?  How ‘bout Irish-American, Italian-American, Greek-American, Welsh-American, Belgian-American, Slav-American, Brazilian-American, German-American, Croat-American, Kenyan-American, Laotian-American, Portuguese-American, Swiss-American, Dutch-American, Sino-American, Serbian-American, Latvian-American, Russo-American,… Even better: Californian-American, Texan-American, Michigan-American, Nebraskan-American, Vermont-American, Alabama-America….  To quote Herb Brooks, coach of the 1980 U.S. Olympic Men’s Hockey Team: The name on the front of the jersey is a helluva lot more important than the one on the back!!”
  • The View
  • People who are “offended” by crosses or menorahs in the public square.  Grow up or don’t look.
  • Countries who accept billion$ in U.S. aid and then stab us in the back for our trouble.
  • RINOs
  • “Sugar free” ice cream.  What’s with that?
  • People who don’t vote and then complain about government.
  • Illegals who flood our affordable housing markets, hospitals, schools and social services such that there’s little to nothing available for legal immigrants and U.S. citizens.
  • Vegetarian lasagne
  • “Winter Break.”  We wouldn’t want to drag religion into CHRISTmas now, would we?
  • Educrats whose sole answer to failing government schools is to throw more $ at ‘em.  How much is enough?  $5,000 a student?  $10K?  $50K?  $100?  And how much of that $ actually gets to the classroom?
  • Oysters
  • “Non-competitive” school sports.  Talk about an oxy-moron.
  • A ‘Department of Justice’ that hasn’t yet figured out how to treat crime like it’s illegal.  Maybe they should ask Arizona?
  • The race card
  • Elected officials who think it’s their job to “rule.”  Newsflash:  This is America.  We don’t have rulers here.  You serve The People.  Our forefathers fought a war to throw off that yoke of tyranny, so if that’s your view, find another country.  Like Cuba.
  • SEIU
  • Politicians who love spending other people’s money (Reid, Pelosi, Murray, Cantwell, Dicks, Rangel, Durbin, Schumer, Clinton, Kerry, Feinstein, Boxer…. You get the drift)
  • Republicans who love spending other people’s money
  • Hillary
  • Politicians of any party who haven’t figured out that there’s no such thing as taxing people into prosperity.
  • Non-Christians who expect Christians to sit down and shut up, lest their tender secular, atheistic ears be offended by biblical pearls of wisdom or righteousness
  • Revisionist history
  • Pickle jar lids
  • DemoLibs who think our military should morph into a gay pride parade.
  • Synchronized swimming
  • The “human-caused” global warming scam
  • Double-digit unemployment and cooked books
  • Obamacare.  AKA: Elderly,disabled and ill need not apply
  • Liberal bigots who slam anyone who dares disagree with them for being “bigots.”
  • Paragons of “tolerance” who’ll happily champion your right to free speech – as long as you agree with them.
  • Lists.

There’s nothing like launching into a fresh New Year after cleaning up some clutter.  I feel better already.

Now, where are those party hats?
