Marking the start of the new year 3

Mark Twain

“New Year’s Day: Now is the accepted time to make your regular annual good resolutions.

Next week you can begin paving hell with them as usual.” – Mark Twain


A Happy New Year to all who see this page!

We make New Year wishes rather than resolutions. Here are some of them:

May Obama be hindered, hampered, frustrated and blocked in every political action he takes. Best of all, may he (and Joe Biden) resign.

May the decline of America, that Obama has deliberately worked, be reversed. May the Republicans use their congressional majorities and all their positions of authority to effect that reversal.

May religious belief start withering away, irreversibly, from the human psyche.

May Islam be soundly defeated everywhere on earth and set on the road to rapid and total extinction.

May the welfare state start being phased out, and genuine market economies be allowed to function in every nation-state.

May the man-made global warming lobby give up.

May the United Nations and all its agencies be destroyed.


Those are enough to be getting on with.

Okay – we’re being unrealistic. But while we’re wishing, we may as well wish big.

Readers are invited to tell us their wishes (or resolutions) if they will.

    Excellent wishes! Here’s one to add (as a sort of prerequisite to the others):

    May Reason, inspiring rational thinking, honesty, and sanity, prevail.

    (I suspect our politicians will soon be paving the road to hell with them all, though!)
