What a year all of us Americans had in 2013


Fascinating year, how do I count the ways?

Our most precious warriors are still dying in Afghanistan, six on Tuesday. The day we leave, the Taliban will take over and have the support of the Muslim folks there.

Libya, thanks to our interference in overthrowing Gadhafi, is now a extremist state run by killer gangs. We also know without a doubt that Obama deliberately lied about Benghazi, along with Hillary, who wants to be president.

Syria is fortunately still run by Assad, who is backed by Russia, instead of al-Qaida and the Muslim Brotherhood. Those guys just drove the free Syrian Army out of the country and stole all their supplies provided by the West. And Sen. McCain said what?

Egypt is now run by a dictator who stands by as more Muslim nuts kill Christians, and we give them money. McCain again. And let’s not forget Iran, who now have a green light to build a nuc and imprison American citizens.

Our NSA has been a very busy bunch of folks, keeping us all safe by spying on our own people. Oh, I forgot. The greatest enemy of America is a bunch of armed white folks. Snowden showed us all the future, 1984.

In New York, in the dead of night, our commie governor destroyed the Second Amendment rights of millions of our best citizens while doing absolutely nothing to deter crime. This will not end well. New York City elected a communist mayor, where the vast majority of violent crime is committed by minorities, and they want to confiscate long guns from the fools who registered them.

The president has been named the biggest liar of the year. Our president, as his administration proceeds to destroy our health care system.

We can’t have any of those substandard policies now, you foolish citizens. We know what is best for you. Maternity coverage for men. Wow.

The Republicans just got suckered again into more spending, and they are mad at the Tea Party! I just can’t wait until the Democrats take control of the House and Senate. Civil War, anyone? At least we got Ted Cruz and Rand Paul.

China landed a rover on the moon, and Russia is planning a massive arms buildup, while Obama plays golf and goes to fundraisers instead of Gettysburg.

At least we still make great movies. I loved “Catching Fire” and Jennifer Lawrence and can’t wait to see “Lone Survivor.”

And IHC has a great team this year, 6-0, with only 55 kids in the senior class. Go Cavs. And the Spartan Nation got their coach back after some politically correct losers couldn’t stand a real man driving his kids to be the best.

I wonder what 2014 will bring us.
