A Year To Dismember

Although it’s become established custom and journalistic tradition at this time of year to review the events of the preceding 12 months, the ever-crabby staff of one here at Bob Mack’s Conservative Conservatory find that such a retrospective is next to impossible without first laying in a larger stock of anti-emetics than the firm can currently afford (barring a sudden and substantial increase in clicks on the normally lethargic “donate” button).  It’s not that this particular cycle was much worse than the last two.  In some respects, it was a definite improvement (i.e. the retirements of Larry King and Oprah).  But the reckless “progressive” legislation written by our so-called representatives, and signed into law (or ordained as such) by our  alleged President during our latest mandatory journey round the sun, have laid a substantial foundation for many wretched orbits yet to come.  The National Debt increased 64% (a record $3.22 trillion in new debt accumulated by the profligate Democrats in the 111th Congress–$1.262 trillion more than the record set by the previous profligates, the Democrats in the 110th Congress), and now stands just short of 50 grand for every man, woman, and child fortunate enough to be citizens of these nearly bankrupt United States.  In return, we have gotten a health care plan nobody wanted, a stimulus package that hasn’t stimulated anything except an already too fat and too sassy federal government, and the continuation of a war that nobody currently in power has any intention of winning.  Additionally, we have had foisted upon us a homosexual military, the beginning of governmental control over our food and our speech, and the suspension of 4th Amendment rights at airports.  Except by incipient tyrants, grinning Marxists, and overpaid union members, 2010 is a year best forgotten.

    Bob you sure did just put the whole year into a nut shell to say the least. Great Post and lets hope our New Congress will hold true to their word.

  2. My New Year’s post won’t rehash 2010. Frankly, I’ve had enough of the doings of 2010. I don’t really hold a lot of optimism for 2011, but I’ll be slogging on.

  3. Bob,
    Forgot to say…Happy 2011 to you! May the year be kind to you — and to all us conservatives, for that matter.

    Apart from Oprah and Larry, do fortify your inner self and await something similar in 2011.

    Roll on 2012.

    • Bob Mack says:

      Ah, Ike, I generally fortify my inner self with a dram or two of something between 80 & 100 proof. The way things are going, I may have to increase the dosage…

        Indeed Bob, 2010 is a year to DISMEMBER. As for me, I will have a dash of tequila. Well considering all the assaults on our liberties this year, more than a dash.

        In any event, Happy New Year my friend.

  6. 2010 is over none too soon, happy new year.

    I say NOT forget it and remember all that these cretins have spawned upon us and then be able to do something about it in 2012. Like vote and throw them out.
    “Semper Fi”

    Happy New Year

      Unfortunately, like the old, faded tattoos we got in the service, I’m afraid the consequences of 2010 will be around a long time after the “artists” who stenciled them into being are gone.

      Best wishes for the New Year, Mike.

    I agree with Mike,…never forget !
    The next two years are going to be intriguing to say the least.
    The efforts we made in the election will not fall to naught.

    Happy New Year Sarge, well done !
