With Few Exceptions, Good Riddance 2016

Wasn't going to post any kind of New Year's sentimentality this time around, but keeping it short let me just go on by saying that 2016 (with few exceptions) was absolutely a terrible year for the United States of America.

We all know why.

There are some people who just don't understand they choose against their own best interests to benefit the top one percent in this country, so next month we have to deal with insanity for the next four years.

Enough said on that subject.

In other areas, 2016 took away so many beloved people (entertainers, sports figures, etc.) we like to call celebrities.
The list is simply TOO LONG this year to name them all, but some of the more famous (or most recent ones) included Pop music icons Prince and David Bowie, as well as singer/song writer George Michael, who died on Christmas Day.
Also passing away last summer were NHL legend Gordie Howe and golfing ambassador Arnold Palmer.
Carrie Fisher of "Star Wars" movie fame just passed away a few days ago and one day later her mother, singer/actress Debbie Reynolds died.
Former U.S. Senator and astronaut John Glenn died in early December and so did former First Lady Nancy Reagan earlier this year. Again, so many names to list . . .

And of course, boxing legend "The Greatest" Muhammad Ali died earlier this year as well.

On a bright note (at least here in Chicago) the CHICAGO CUBS WON THE WORLD SERIES in 2016!!!  That ended a 108 year sports championship drought for the historic franchise.

All in all, 2016 was a horse shit year, so good riddance.

Here's hoping that 2017 brings more cheer.

    For now ... I plan to #resist as much as I can!
