When the Mayans predicted the world would come to an end as we know
it this past December,...I am beginning to think that maybe it happened
and we just didn't notice.

Because in the first month of this "New Post Mayan Age", we are seeing
things we never thought possible and at the very least were highly improbable!

Who would have thought Lance Armstrong would admit to doping faster than
his hair falling out from taking too much testosterone!

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas speaking out loud from the bench
during oral arguments for the first time in 7 years. It was only one sentence
but it was still one more sentence uttered than from any of the heads on the
faces of Mount Rushmore!

Didn't think we would see the day Dell Computer and Best Buy would be talking  
about going private with the same enthusiasm they had when going public...
if this becomes a trend, what would happen to insider trading, stock manipulation,
CEO stock options and golden parachutes...this will never work!

How about KFC being accused of endangering children in China with dangerous
antibiotics in their chicken wings instead of factories in China poisoning our
kids with lead in their toy rings.

Or Cuba telling it's citizens to visit us on a Carnival Cruise ship instead of a
raft made out of used parts from a 1952 Chevrolet Impala.

But what could not even be predicted by Nostradamus or Sheila from the Psychic
Network, is that partisanship would say "good-bye" for a moment and melt like a
glacier under a polar bear, who didn't want to believe in "climate change" either.

In a very big Bye to partisanship...an evenly divided New York State Assembly
among Republicans and Democrats, passed the toughest gun-control law in the
country...with 11 more states proposing legislation to do more of the same!

John Boehner has allowed to bills to be voted on and passed in the House of
Representatives with a majority of Democrats and a minority of Republicans
...those being the Fiscal Cliff solution and the funding for Hurricane Sandy!

Jan Brewer...yes, Jan Brewer the finger pointing governor from Arizona who
wouldn't let President Obama valet her car at a Klux Klux Klan rally, is now endorsing
ObamaCare as the best solution for her state...that might be more a result of
witchcraft than a strong prediction.

Governor Rick Perry of Texas and Governor Jerry Brown of California, whose
governing priorities have as little in common as Mitt Romney and 47% of the
population, both announced they have gone from record deficits to projected
budget surpluses for the next 4 years.

There is quite a bit of confusion with Governor Christie hugging President Obama
as tightly as two pounds of bologna in a one pound bag, Republican leadership
in the Senate denouncing any plans to shut the government down by not raising
the debt ceiling, Republicans leading the charge on immigration while President
Obama being accused of not having any strong female representation in the White
House.

Either this is a permanent full moon or this is what the Mayans meant by Armageddon!

The President is about to be inaugurated for his second term of office and he will be
facing a host of problems that will challenge us as a Nation...wouldn't it be nice if
a lack of bi-partisanship... was no longer one of them!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
