Happy? New Year...

So it's 2011, and for the last couple days everything I've said was preceded or followed by the words "Happy New Year". But the more you think about it, the more it seems 2011 is not gonna be such a happy year. From the White House down it's going to be a tough year.

With the GOP in control in congress, I'm hoping for gridlock. I was always OK with the "Party of No" title, stopping Obama's socialist takeover will be paved with Republicans saying NO! Notice I said "hoping", I have no faith in the Republican party, they will fold at the drop of a pin and burn their constituency. Loyalty means nothing to the GOP hierarchy, mostly because we have nowhere else to go. They probably laugh about it behind closed doors.

Now don't get me wrong, I don't want to see people unhappy, but I don't see unemployment going down anytime soon and taxes are going up (in Cali for sure), oil is up, if Obama raises the minimum wage inflation will go up as well. Grocery store prices are already high, I spent fifty dollars the other day and got almost nothing. Last post I believe I spoke about tightening belts and we are going to have no choice in 2011. With all that, I still want to see people happy, but we are not going to find it in government or hollywood. Go to Church, Temple or wherever you go for solace and keep your friends and family close. You have to do it for yourself, cause no one is gonna do it for you.

  1. idk about your republican slap, but im not much in knowing the ins and outs of politics. i tend to be more small in the thought of how the year 2011 will be "me" wise. though, the economy seems to be up as people seemed to spend more this christmas, but the deficit seems to be ever rising, so those rather cancel each other out and extend into the negative range.
