It’s popular and customary to make resolutions, set goals for the new year and review the last one. Folks - I’ll hope you’ll forgive me if I take a hard pass? Things are so crazy now. Crazy people do crazy stuff, win stupid prizes… and I’m supposed to act surprised, feel sorry for them, take responsibility for them and reach for my wallet to help them out when Darwin and Murphy are done beating them up. Every day for the last half dozen years or more, I have watched our marginalized officially oppressed victim groups get everything they want… and they just keep getting nastier and meaner. They want to change the world when they don’t even know how it works. Now I don’t know how it works anymore. It’s getting to the point where retirement planning means stocking up on beer, ammo, supplies and popcorn…
The pressure is dropping, the temp is going up. The compass spins wild and isn’t worth the time of day. Morons, grifters and carnies hemm and hawww over the instruments and pretend to understand them as they come up with increasingly fake and gay “science”. It’s clown world’s kingdom come.
I made my choice long ago; the world isn’t complicated. Do what’s right. There are no shortcuts. Look after yourself. That’s my goal for 2022. It’s not that hard. Although, sometimes…GAH. But life was never meant to be easy, was it?
From the simple folk here at Castello Di La Filthie… have yourselves a righteous New Year first and foremost, and the happiness will follow that and hopefully spread to those around you. All the best to you and yours in 2022… and thanks for stopping by.
