Final Friday: Fuhgeddaboudit

This is the last Friday of 2017, and my last post before the new year, an opportunity to reflect on what happened in 2017 and fuhgeddaboudit as we look forward to 2018.

Congress FINALLY accomplished something just before year’s end, giving a tax cut to almost everyone, boosting the already roaring economy even further (looking forward to a HUGE 2018), and reduce the damage being done by the death-throws of Obamacare – soon it will collapse under its own weight, and we’ll all be able to fuhgeddaboudit.

Hillary put her name on another book – hopefully she won’t do that again next year, and we can all fuhgeddaboudit.

The mainstream media (MSM) has spent the first year trying to damage the President, and complaining when he attacks back – see, they’re not used to someone on the other side – and let’s face it, Republicans and/or Conservatives are the other side to them, which is part of the problem. MSM, if you want the President to stop slapping you around on Twitter for your bias, maybe you shouldn’t have it so obviously on display. If you could manage to report on the President accurately, maybe even with better than 5% positive coverage, he might just fuhgeddaboudit.

Instead, the MSM has been trumpeting the attempts to find Russian Collusion with the Trump Campaign. That Investigative Cabal has spent over a year and tons of OUR money coming up with – NOTHING, but that apparently will continue into next year, because they think if they go back far enough, they’ll find SOMETHING – Maybe not collusion (which isn’t even a crime), but something, because Trump won the election, and they just can’t fuhgeddaboudit.

The MSM would rather cover that, and cover-up the Democrat Politicization of the FBI and their collusion for Hillary and against Trump, the investigation into the investigation of Hillary’s violation of the Espionage Act, the Obama Administration’s OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE in allowing Hezbollah to continue bringing drugs into the U.S. so the Iranian Mullahs would sign the horrendous (for US, anyway) Iran Nuclear Deal (as though all the billions we were going to pay them to do nothing wasn’t enough incentive.) The MSM would rather we think those little threats to our democracy were nothing and just fuhgeddaboudit.

I’d like to, but sometimes you just have to deal with the REAL PROBLEMS.

Just saying…


At the last minute (or at least one of the middle ones), I’ve enrolled some of my books in the Smashwords EOY Sale (basically, anything that was more than 99-cents is now 50% – 75% off. You can find my books on Smashwords with this link:


I have a couple of weeks before I should release my next ePub if I’m going to maintain my schedule into 2018 – need to pick the next story and get it formatted.
