This has not been a good year. Next year portends to be even worse. But there is much to look forward to, and some good things did happen this year. I’ve given a name for every year for the past few years. I have an idea what I’m going to call 2015. I’d have to go back through my old posts to see what I called them. I think I’ll call year 2015 Doubling Down on the Wrong Thing to Do.

Good is a relative term. We aren’t in North Korea or any ISIS occupied territory or in an Ebola infected country. And I don’t expect the US to collapse over the next two years, so there’s that. But I expect the infrastructure of this country will continue to deteriorate and we’ll lose two more years to deal with global warming. The longer the delay in dealing with these problems the less able we’ll be able to deal with them as the effects of them get worse.

Update 12/15/2014: In light of recent news events, I think that 2015 will subtitled:GOP, rectally force feeding America since 2000 (or 1980 or 1968).
