It’s actually got nothing to do with Christmas, they just needed a title. What it DOES have to do with is the glaring inconsistencies in the TSA’s “banned items” list.
My prediction: the next hijacking will be done with knitting needles.

I believe in a two-party system where ideas are tested and assumptions are challenged — because that’s how we can move this country forward. But what I reject is when some folks decide to sit on the sidelines and root for failure on health care or on energy or on our economy. What I reject is when some folks say we should go back to the past policies when it was those very same policies that got us into this mess in the first place.
BARACK OBAMA, speech at DNC fundraising reception, Oct. 15, 2009
“We should be going forward to new policies that can get us into an even BIGGER mess.”
Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.
A new law allows driverless cars in Michigan. In Detroit…
Okay, there were some good things in the year, but overall, it wasn’t a great year. It was a bad year for many people.
I’d like to ask what, in your opinion, was the best and the worst of 2013.
Let me offer a couple of things.
Obamacare. And that’s one of the best. No, not Obamacare in and of itself. That was way up near the top of the list for the worst. But, the fact that people finally understood what conservatives such as I have been saying all along: Obama and the Democrats are completely incompetent, can’t be trusted, and will screw up anything they get near. Obamacare is such a massive fail, that even some of the idiots in my family that voted for that jackass have even come to doubt things. Not completely, since, as I said, some of them are idiots, but it’s a start.
Anyway, the reaction to Obamacare is a good thing. It gives me a slim hope that people will understand that Democrats are to be avoided like the plague.
Worst of 2013? Well, on a personal level, it’s the split. I haven’t spoken much about it, but these things happen. Always puts a crimp in the finances, which is difficult when the economy is good, and really difficult when we’re in the 5th year of Obama screwing things up. Oh, well. Stuff happens. It’s not the first time I’ve been through this. Besides, I really don’t want to talk about it.
How about you? What, to you, are the best and worst things of 2013?
