“Make hay while the sun shines” is an adage applying
equally to farms and fitness centers.
Like alfalfa growers in June, a gym’s profit
is tied to a very narrow window in January.
Drive by any fitness center the first couple
weeks of the New Year and it is filled with
Americans resolving to exercise, eat right and live
a healthier lifestyle.
By March, old comfortable habits will have
choked the weakly dedicated and the stair steppers
If gym owners were as organized as ethanol
farmers there would be a subsidy program for fitness
Abandoning resolutions year after year can be
disheartening, but only if you believed yourself in
the first place; something politicians never do.
Here is a
partisan peek at promises and resolutions.
Progressives always keep their promises because
their craftily devised deception occurs prior to the
marketing of the public resolution.
Once the lie is accepted as the truth,
implementing it is the easy part.
For example, even though scientists agree
climate change is a con, followers of Marx live in a
dimension where it is real.
By pure faith they accept the illusion man
can set the earth’s temperature by manipulating tax
The progressive ruling class surrendered the
power to tax the unwashed to an international
authority at the Paris Climate Change Summit.
Conversely, but equally progressive, blow-dryer
Republicans never keep their promises.
In 2012 and 2014, the GOP ran on the platform
they would repeal Obamacare and they rode a tidal
wave into office.
Yet, rather than defund socialized medicine,
they supported it in every spending bill, when a
simple majority “No” vote in a single chamber could
have shut it down.
Instead, the GOP ran with a ceremonial
Obamacare repeal bill which would have required a
majority vote in both chambers, plus the signature
of President Obama to become law.
Now they will go back to voters in 2016 and
say “We tried, but we really need the Presidency to
replace Obamacare with our version of socialized
They lied from the very beginning.
True Christian conservative Republicans, such as
Senator Ted Cruz, always keep their promises as
proven by his attempt to filibuster Obamacare in the
The nastiest attacks came from the blow-dryer wing
of his own party because they despise anyone who
does not support the status quo.
This brings me to my point.
America’s state sponsored invasion by ISIS will
fundamentally change our nation, so it is futile to
obsess over New Years’ resolutions. For self-defense
purposes, go ahead and have that third piece of
cheesecake because even the most dimwitted terrorist
knows fat people are harder to kidnap.
However, if you still want to make a
meaningful promise to yourself and your descendants,
vow to identify and reject all progressives,
including blow-dryer Republicans, at every level of
the 2016 election.
