New Chance

While technically just another day, today is the beginning of a New Year based on the calendar we are using. So most of us have agreed to mark this day as the first day of 2006.
Therefore , let me wish all of the readers the best for the New Year.
I really don't have any predictions for the New Year but rather some observations.

1. On balance you will have to say that 2006 will be a shitty year for Bush and company. You can only pile so much crap in the wagon before the wheels start to come off. I think the coming year will be the one in which a majority of the American public wakes up to the fact that we have failed miserably in our selection of leadership and tries to make amends.

2. We have been living on "economic borrowed time" for the last few years. The tax cuts, deficit spending, overblown housing market and the credit card binge Americans have been experiencing will come home to roost this year and after it is sorted we will have a very different looking world. It will be most unpleasant.

So any way, I hope everyone enjoys the balance of the holiday and didn't drink too much last night. Today is the day we need to "gird our loins" for the coming year and try and make the best of what I fear will be a year of tribulation in many ways.

May the force be with you!
