I used to enjoy making Resolutions at New Year’s beginning. I knew I probably wouldn’t keep most of them; but you know I usually attempted to do all of them at least partially.
Kind of a continual battle to better myself. A kind of reality check, about the perfect being the enemy of the good. The nice thing was, I would feel good for the progress and not beat myself up over not being perfect. Like I mean it’s not a law or anything – Right?
Just saw this article in a Chicago paper about how the State of Illinois has 300 new laws on the books for their citizens to follow. What is a law other than a mandatory Resolution made by the State you must follow? Well I’m sure they’ll also remind you - ignorance of the law is no excuse.
BTW if they got 300 new laws for this year, how many do they already have on the books? Thousands I would guess.
I like the one about American made flags on all government buildings, even local ones. Knowing Chicago, the Mayor’s nephew probably has a stake in a flag making company on the South Side. I wonder if the flag pole and or holder etc has to be American made too. I mean do you want the Chineese supporting Old Glory. Well outside of buying our bonds of course.
I assume other inquiring minds than my own are wondering why flags have been signaled out? Think of the possibilities. This could be a god send for legislators who made a New Year’s resolution to get their name on a bill this year to prove to those that elected them they are hard at work.
I can see the headline now.
The JOHN DOE American Made Toilet Paper Bill has passed the Senate!!!
Why should I bother when we have so many experts getting paid so well to realize and tell me what I should and shouldn’t do? Who am I to decide such things?
Well Happy New Year’s Anyway.
I can’t resist – I Resolve not to swear on my blog.
Oh Shite (see what I mean?) they probably already have a law; or John Doe is putting pen to one as I speak. Lol No Foreign swearing on Blogs. The TSA will be getting into it pretty soon.

PS the Dems should do some Resolution making not to lose candidates.
This after the blog I did the other day about Parker Griffith
