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.
