New Year’s wish by Allan Cooper

Imagine if you will a world transforming
All news is upbeat, good humor abounds
We bring an end to global warming
Wars finally end, good will resounds

Imagine if you will a world of surprises
Announced daily are medical advances
A new clean source of energy arises
Poverty wanes with improved circumstances

Imagine if you will a world of largesse
The arts flourish, the sciences thrive
Material comforts for all without excess
The dying seas come back alive

Imagine if you will a world replete with love
Strangers speak to one another
Shoppers no longer push and shove
We regard our enemy as our brother

Imagine a world without judges
No one called “insiders” or “outsiders”
Our blessings no longer one begrudges
We all become uniters, no more dividers

But this imagined world is alive and well
It exists in the minds of you and me
It becomes real when this tale we tell
Is told from the top of the highest tree

So don’t despair that times are tough
No one’s life is spent in vain
You and I are made of better stuff
We’ll make this world much more humane!

    “So the next thing I assume I’ll be hearing from Republicans, they want to change rules some way, as they do on the House when you get a problem with ethics, they just change the rules.” – Harry Reed

    Harry! You’re a profit!

    “House Republicans Move to Slash Powers of Ethics Watchdog.”
    – USA Today, Jan. 2nd, 2017

    “The independent Office of Congressional Ethics, launched in 2008 to address concerns that the lawmaker-run House Ethics Committee failed to adequately police members of Congress, now would be subject to oversight by the House Ethics Committee, under the proposed rules package adopted by Republican lawmakers.The independent Office of Congressional Ethics, launched in 2008 to address concerns that the lawmaker-run House Ethics Committee failed to adequately police members of Congress, now would be subject to oversight by the House Ethics Committee, under the proposed rules package adopted by Republican lawmakers.”

    So, one of the first moves the Repub’s do is start overseeing the overseer of ethics? Is that even ethical? Good f***in’ move! Who the hell needs ethics anyway, especially since the leader of your party doesn’t have any; no not one!

    This shit is going to get deep! I’m tellin’ ya!

      Read the new headlines today and then you can choke on your lunch. Donald J Trump calls out Republicans for this move on his tweeter. I love that we all get to follow the thoughts and ideas of our President-elect. By the way, Republicans have dropped this idea this morning following Mr. Trump’s twitter comment…

      This was a bad and unnecessary move by the Republicans. Just back in June 2016 Democrat Congressman Charles Rangel, New York…hahaha. one of the most corrupt Congressman was
      convicted of 11 of 13 charges for ethical violations. Under the Republicans change, we would not even know this!

        Yea, he called them out alright; not because he disagreed with what they were trying, nah! Just the timing…

        “With all that Congress has to work on, do they really have to make the weakening of the Independent Ethics Watchdog, as unfair as it … may be, their number one act and priority. Focus on tax reform, healthcare and so many other things of far greater importance! #DTS,”

        Come on now, it’ll come up again later on down the road and your boy will not only back it but probably try and fast track it; he’d have to, to cover his own ass!

    We won’t have to Imagine really, because something quite similar will happen on January 20th at noon eastern time when Presidente El Trumpo take the Oath of Office and Obama retreats to his Caliphate.

      Still stuck on the birther and Muslim shit, huh? Wow! Even your potus has calmed that BS down (just like the rest of his campaign “promises” he’s “walked that back” as well…)!

      Well, I guess when you find something to attach your idiotic fears and prejudices to it’s awfully hard to let ’em go…

      So, click your heals three times and repeat after the Breitbart Crew… “There’s a white guy in the White House again! There’s a white guy in the White House again! There’s a white guy in the White House again”!

      Feel better? Ya do?! Well that won’t last long…
