In the time it will take us to sit down, get out a piece of paper and write down our new years' resolutions, you have to realize that even larger decision is at hand. Instead follow contemplating what we want to do for the next year, more realistically in the next 2 1/2 weeks, we must decide how we want to be impacted for the next four years.
It's not enough to have the regular stress for Christmas. You know, the usual fighting with people in the stores, dealing with family, finding meaning in the reason for the season and crap like that. Add some snowy weather. Don't forget poorly plowed streets. Don't even get me started on the tax/government service connection (or lack thereof). Snowstorms every other day and cold temperatures despite global warming. It's enough to drive anyone insane. However, it is Christmas, and you try to keep your spirits up. Good luck.
I really tried. I really wanted to help. I really wanted to believe the claims made by those who believe in global warming. But if I try to make sense of it, it just does not add up.
A couple of weeks ago CBS ran a feature story about the dangers and proliferation of prescription drugs. They also took a four day reprieve from their almost exclusive prescription drug advertising campaign between show segments. I don't know who they were trying to fool, it just shows a little bit of hypocrisy.
