1 January 2018. Some Musings On the New Year…

________________________

This year, I’ll be 64-years-old. If it was 20-odd years ago, I’d be preparing for retirement. That’s not the case anymore… thanks to the Clintons, Bush II, and Obama. The neoliberals gutted the retirement system to reward their fatcat sugar-daddies. Nowadays, if one wants a full Social Security cheque, one has to wait until 70 (that age was 65 until the Clintons). I’m going to have to work as long as I’m physically able to, with the hope that I can get to 70 to receive my full retirement allotment.

If it appears that I don’t view the future with optimism, you’re correct. I’ve seen the rights and compensation of working people go into the toilet since the time of Slobberin’ Ronnie Reagan. That’s why I hate Rod Dreher and James Jatras… and everything that they stand for. They’ve consciously become shills for the oligarchs… they cheerlead the raping of our country by the super-rich, cloaking it all in pseudo-religious and pseudo-moralistic verbiage. Their yelps about the “persecution” of Christians is pure moonshine… I’ll tell you why anti-theistic atheism is on the march… the false religion and morals offered by the likes of Dreher and Jatras (and those like them).

However, I refuse to bow before such filth, nor do I intend to just quietly submit to their distortion and perversion of our Orthodox heritage. In the coming year, I vow to keep the faith and fight all “conservative” and “liberal” slimers with all my powers. There is no real difference between Republicans and Democrats… no real difference between Clinton and Trump… no real difference between the neoliberal factions (“liberals” and “conservatives” both lick the ass of the oligarchs and shit on the common people).

Yet… we may have seen the worst of it. The younger people are restless under the debt imposed on them by the likes of Clinton and Trump… I’d say that a spectre haunts Mar-a-Lago… God grant that I live to see it…
