Goodbye, Blue Monday

Goodbye, Blue Monday!

Thanks as always to The Other McCain, Pirate’s Cove and Bacon Time for the Rule Five links!  And as we had placeholders last holiday week, be sure to check out last week’s entry over at Glibertarians.

So, hey, folks, it’s officially Twenty-Twenty-One, and has been for a few days.  Things have to be looking up, right?  Things couldn’t possibly be any worse than the dumpster fire that was 2020 – right?

Actually 2020 wasn’t bad for us here at the Casa de Animal.  We had a profitable year thanks to a long-term project that was amenable to remote work and was, in fact, planned to be mostly remote prior to the Kung Flu.  We have our retirement home in the Great Land, and in the next few months everything we’re taking north will be moved and the Colorado house sold, rendering us mortgage-free.  So honestly 2021 is looking pretty good for us, personally.

As for the nation?  Well, Dems would have us believe that Joe Biden, apparently soon-to-be President Biden unless the Trump people can pull some really amazing last-second shit, is just the guy to lead us out of the Kung Flu crisis.  Joe Biden couldn’t lead us to the fridge where his pudding cups are stored, much less lead the nation out of a crisis.  And while his campaign kept him mostly safe and secluded until they absolutely had to Adderal him up enough to withstand a debate or a softball interview, he won’t be able to manage a meeting with Putin or Xi without drooling.  Watch for a 25th Amendment solution to be offered within the first couple of years, with the resulting President Harris.  If the thought of that doesn’t horrify you, well, then I guess nothing will.

So, sure, 2021 may be pretty interesting.  Better than 2020?  Maybe.  But maybe not.  And that’s making the Great Land look pretty damn good.  Hang on, True Believers – I think we’re in for a pretty interesting time.
