And yet again, a year went by. Bye bye! Most folks around me say, one of the worst years they had to endure. I must confess, for me that indeed was the case, as my younger brother called me this January, urging me to quickly get a ticket to say goodbye and farewell to my dying father. He was having strokes for quite a long time, making life harder for my mother who took care of him until his last day.
Currently I’m sitting in our boat that we are trying to keep warm with a bunch of electric heaters, wishing previous generations had done a little more concerning cheap energy. Now we have to deal with a dictator who went nuts. Like most dictators do: just think of someone who clearly is an asshole, ready to kill to further his (or her, miss Thatcher!) career, and the ability to get drunk legally. Of course the brain capacities from these people will not grow during their ‘leadership’ years. They almost (give me an example of a positive!) always start with some good ideas, making them popular enough to survive those pioneering years, during which they will always create a small circle of loyal followers, that do the dirty work for them. From within that circle you will not get any critique. Especially if peeps who did that are now really, really hard to reach.
So while in this year dictator trump finally seems to have received an Official Congressional Buttock, oil prices went crazy. It all seems that Putin had promised trump that he would do this right before the mid term elections so that Biden would suffer. We can say that fortunately, that power game didn’t work. We may hope that most people can and will see through the bullshit of trump and his cronies, like Alec ‘infowars’ Jones who claimed the Sandy Hook shooting was ‘fake news’ and now will have to pay nearly a billion (!) dollar fine, to understand the nuances between reality and fantasy.
I’m writing this during Christmas, being too sick to attend the party at my wife’s son’s husbands’ (follow me?) party. Packed into layers of warm clothing I do hope to get better. My throat hurts, as does my belly. The cat chose to stay in bed today. Natura Artis Magistra! See you in 2023 dear reader!
