I figure I ought to offer up a few resolutions for the New Year. I am trying to better myself, for what it's worth.
1). I resolve to spend less time comparing liberals to Nazis. Using the Nazi comparison all the time tends to make it less effective, especially when they actually are acting like Nazis.
2). I resolve to spend less time comparing democRat leaders to Hitler. This is quite unfair. Hitler was only responsible for about 20 million deaths through attempted genocide and the war itself. With around 54 million dead from abortion alone, liberal numbers are much closer to Stalin and Mao.
3). I resolve to lose weight. Easy to say I now, but I've lost about 16 pounds a year over the last 2 years, and I figure that if they will hold off for another 10 years or so, I will be ready to fight in the next Civil War, new American Revolution or Zombie Apocalypse, whichever comes first.
4). I resolve to increase my walking mileage over the year just past. In 2012, I walked over 750 miles over the course of the year. I hope to hit 800, or maybe even 850 in 2013. Not only is walking good exercise, and helps get you in shape, but with the price of gas likely to skyrocket, along with energy costs on general, I guess I ought to be better prepared to take a long hike.
5). Speaking of long hikes, I resolve to increase my number of long hikes. I had three of greater than ten miles in 2012. I ought to be able to double that, at least, maybe more. If there is a breakdown in the Union, I want to be prepared to head south and west, to Texas or Oklahoma, where I'll be among similar minded people. And, assuming a Zombie Apocalypse, I want to be able to walk to Alaska. Zombies hate cold, you know.
6). I resolve to buy an assault rifle. Not only am I jealous that my wife is better armed than me, but I want a weapon that will make liberals cower in fear at the slightest thought that I have it. Wouldn't even have to pull it out, I suspect, just say, "Hey, wanna see my AR-15?" and watch the fun begin.
7). I resolve to live within my means. If I believe the government ought to, then I ought to as well. Currently, my annual outflow is about 105% of my gross annual income, with a revolving debt of about 12% of that figure (I'm not counting mortgage and car in this figure. They are figured into the monthly budget as fixed expenses, not revolving credit.) Shouldn't be too hard to pare back, although the Obameconomy makes it more difficult. Also, a horrid lack of self-control that would make a congresscritter blush.
8). I resolve to throw liberals' Alinskyite tactics right back at them. Ridicule? Got it in spades. Make them live by their own rules? You bet. If they want to fling mud, let's make sure they get muddied in the process.
Anyway, that's eight. Does anyone out there have any good ones? I'm up for hearing them. Have a happy and safe New Year, and see you next year!
