Things I Will Not Miss About 2012 (and never want to hear about ever again)
We had to endure the Electric Slide, the Hustle and, the Macarena. 2012 brought us, direct from South Korea, Gangnam Style. I don’t get it. Still it received over one billion views on Google’s You Tube. Frankly it is stupid. It has replaced YMCA and the Conga as the most embarrassing dance at weddings and celebrations – unless of course you are eight years old. Enough is enough.
TwilightYes, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart might be easy on the eye but that’s the only appeal of Twilight, whose lovesick melodrama is surely only acceptable if you’re 15 years old and full of hormones. You like vampires? Watch The Lost Boys – in a battle for King of the Vamps, Kiefer Sutherland’s David Van Etten would beat Edward Cullen hands down.

THE KARDASHIANS AND OTHER REALITY PSEUDO CELEBRITIES
FISCAL CLIFF – C’mon Congress. Do your job! And you wonder why your approval rating is lower than Nixon during the height of Watergate.
THE 1 PERCENTERS – I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of hearing about the “1 percenters.” Why does our society insist on the one hand deifying the rich and famous actors and athletes who are overpaid far more than bankers yet at the same time demonize successful entrepreneurs? Why can’t we think about the 100 percenters, that is everybody as a society in its entirety? Remember that more one percenters live in the “Sandy” states of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut than anywhere else. They are people too. Instead, politicians have to pit segments of society against each other. It is so counterproductive. We made it through World War II by being a nation of 100 percenters. We fought epidemics like AIDs as a nation of 100 percenters. Why change our strategy now?
STATES TALKING ABOUT SECEDING- Just stop it. You really aren’t going anywhere. Be part of the solution not part of the problem.
