Adults are awful. Is there anything adults dont eventually ruin? The economy was ruined by adults, the national debt was rung up by adults. Wars, famine, you name anything and somewhere theres an adult somewhere on the verge of ruining it.

What can be said about a year that hasnt happened yet? The optimist looks forward with hope, and the pessimist looks forward with realism, but most people are too busy looking at their phones to see anything at all.

When the media looks back on 2014 it will be portrayed as an awful year, mostly because progressivism took major hits throughout the year. But for everyone else, 2014 wasnt all that bad.

There are few things the media loves more than blaming Republicans for anything bad that happens. The worse the event, the greater the glee. But the more the glee, the less likely it is to be true.

As if we needed more reminders of just how despotic and power mad some world leaders can be, weve been confronted lately by a number of examples of liberty under assault and reminders we must be vigilant in its defense.

Few things upset progressives like a terrorist attack by Islamo-fascists. Not the act of terror itself, mind you, but the perceived backlash against Muslims that follows.

Just two days before this years election, when it was clear there would be a Republican wave, the New York Times ran an op-ed that called for the abolition of midterm elections.

Remember the truth? Not the truth, but truththose irrefutable realities that were backed up by facts. The old 2 + 2 = 4 sort of truth about which there was no debate. Its now dead.

Big government killed Eric Garner. Police were just the weapon.

Outside of perhaps a drum circle or Phish concert, there are few things progressives enjoy more than dead people. Its a fetish Its what makes some people love feet and makes Bill Clinton a chubby-chaser.

President Obama is a genius, or so we are told. We have nothing on which to base that except the word of people who would find a way to praise him if he held a press conference while throwing live puppies into a wood chipper. So forgive me if I dont swallow the hook on that line.

Barack Obamas presidency has been an unmitigated disaster. The slowest economic recovery since World War II, an unemployment rate dropping more from people giving up hope than finding work, the rest of the world looking at American leadership on the world stage the way Michael Moore looks at a salad. You name it; its worse.

If you want to right the ship of state, how did you think that would work? Your one chosen candidate would somehow undo half a century of constitutional disregard in 20 minutes? Of course not.
