Happy New Year!

By Robert Paul Reyes

As the year 2015 comes to a close, I`m not particularly hopeful:

A blowhard buffoon billionaire is riding a wave of free-floating angst, but will he wipe out when actual votes are cast or will he land safely in the White House?

Meanwhile the queen of the Democratic party slumbers in her bed, with her crony capitalists, dreaming that she will wake up to a coronation. 

Islamic radicals plunder, rape and commit genocide with impunity, barely fazed by a year-long campaign of air strikes by the world`s leading powers. 

Meanwhile Obama considers climate change, a.k.a. global warming, a.k.a.  the weather a more immediate threat than ISIS.

Al Gore may be laughing all the way to the bank, but taxpayers aren`t laughing, they realize that the onerous new regulations imposed on energy companies will serve only to further cripple our economy. 

Only a fool believes that Hillary or any of the GOP clowns can restore America`s greatness, should we give in to despair and depression or keep fighting the good fight?

I can`t change the world, but maybe I can make a difference in my family, my workplace, and maybe my humble written words will impact my town. 

That`s about the most optimism that this cranky and cynical columnist can conjure.

Happy New Year!
