New Year’s Resolution

Raoul’s Two Cents: December 30, 2022

Happy New Year

Another year comes to an end. Is it just me or are things getting worse every year? Sure, I could list the craziness out there but why spoil the party, huh? Instead, let’s thank God for the good that happened.

  • Covid cases have not been as deadly
  • China’s Zero lock down policy has stopped.
    (No more senseless killings)
  • Faucci is no longer in charge of the NIH.
    (No need to trust his science)
  • Although airports are still sorting out the stranded travelers, at least there have been no plane crashes
  • Gas prices are starting to go below $5 a gallon
    (from an all time high of $7)
  • There are 3 million potential new workers due to the open borders
  • Twitter is helping sort out truth from conjectures
    (unless of course you believe truth to be subjective)
  • Media networks have revamped their staff and policies
    (hope this ends wild biased conjectures)
  • Ukraine is still alive and kicking.
    (I do wonder why it’s so hard for Putin To catch Zelensky … I mean, is he really trying?).
  • The Johnny Deaf Amber Hearst … I mean Johnny Depp Amber Heard trial is over.
    (They said the main problem of their marriage was weak communication —- Amber HEARD but Johnny was DEAF).
  • The January 6 Trial is over
    (now they can start focusing on laws and running the country)
  • The election commercials are over
    (no more mud slinging)
  • The Fusion Energy breakthrough gives us avenues of hope for clean and abundant energy
    (this is amazing news)
  • Finally, God is still in charge. This is all part of His plan. As long as we are on His side, we have nothing to fear.

So take out your glasses and here’s a toast to 2023 — may we continue to survive the craziness of the world and maximize the borrowed time we are blessed with.

TGIF people!

    Good morning Raoul, Yes I’m very Grateful that Jesus is still and always will be in control. I know that Capital Punishment is also coming and not because God wants Revenge on Cold Blooded Killers , But I believe it’s because these killers will never change. So if offered to get Right with the Lord before their punishment, maybe then they can be saved. I’m sure the victims and their families can care less about their salvation, but at least they can have some real Justice and it will definitely reduce crimes and Murders. ( Riverside Sheriff Gun down yesterday and Killed 🙏😕)
    Let’s Hope 2023 is way better and God Bless.
