How to welcome

the New Year

Regardless of what the state of the nation might be, the end of the year must evolve as an uplifting experience, because it includes the celebration of a blessed event - the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and our prayers and hopes for the future.

So, we should be joyous and rid our minds of concerns and the calamities that face our nation as the new year dawns. If anyone needs help or encouragement, please consider my approach. It's a prescription for enjoying the holidays and welcoming New Year 2013:

Overlook Obama's obligatory "Obummercare." It's a done deal.

Forget the fast and furious fiasco. It's already swept under the rug.

Be gone with the Benghazi blunder. Hillary's concussion avoids her testimony.

Fear not the fiscal cliff catastrophe. Another loan from China will bail us out.

Kudos for Kerry as "Sectarian of State." He votes for before he votes against.

Laments to legislative congressional lapdogs. Forgive them, for they do not know what they do.

Above all, eat, drink and be merry because you can blame your fork for making you fat and the booze bottle for making you inebriated. Oh, yes, and if you happen to be obnoxious or get out of control, it's Bush's fault.

What a blessing for us to be living in a free nation to have allowed all that has happened over the past 200 plus years. Let's hope that the true meaning of freedom as intended by our founders will be accepted and prevail in our nation's future.

Happy New Year and God bless America!
