It is finally coming to an end… and not a minute too soon!
Like an obnoxious guest, we will be glad to see its back. It will be remembered though, but with outrage and sorrow.
On December 31st, we will all heave a big sigh of relief and look forward to a better future. Short of a nuclear conflict, nothing could possibly be worse than the waning year.
But with the departure of that terrible chapter, we will also hail (Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia) the grudging exit of a narcissistic buffoon. A man who pretended to run our country, but in truth a vulgar mercenary who tried to enrich himself (and his cronies) every step of the way.
Don’t let the door hit you on the way out DT!
Now, the “warp speed” operation promised by the White House is not exactly zooming. It is at best crawling and many more people will die before a sizable number of Americans gets immunized. So, what is holding up the parade?
The military was supposed to conduct this operation, but as Georges Clemenceau once said: “War is too important to be left to the generals”
In my humble opinion, the job should have been given to Amazon Prime. These guys really mean business and deliver as promised.
In the meantime, we have got to be extremely cautious and take every precaution prescribed by the medical community. There is absolutely no excuse for anybody to ignore those mandates and party as if nothing happened. We are in a war, and in times of war, you have very few personal rights. Scofflaws and their ilk should be flown to China for political reeducation. These people will tell you in no uncertain terms what they think of your selfish personal rights.
In the meantime, we should trust Uncle Joe and Maid Kamala. This new David seems to have more common sense than yesterday’s Goliath. He seems to genuinely care for the common people and ought to be given a fair chance to succeed.
I understand that on December 31st at midnight the Times Square crystal ball will be dropped as usual but without its million revelers. I have no doubts that some people will try to gather and make merry, but almost everybody agrees that it would be a bad idea. This by the way never prevented anybody from doing this kind of bungee jumping anyway.
Goodbye 2020 and a happy New Year to everybody. It is the first page of a brand new blank book. Feel it up with joy, laughter, and happy memories. After that dreadful 2020, you deserve it.
Bonne Année a tous!
