First, Happy New Year.  It is my hope that it will bring joy to us all.  Maudlin and unrealistic?  Probably.  So what?  Since personal mantras appear all the rage among the folks I hang with at this closing of the year, I offer you mine:  Change is inevitable, to struggle is an option.

Second, to all of you cat lovers out there, there's a new poll to your right.  Just look to the right.  There it is.  There are alternatives that I've missed, quite deliberately, but you're welcome to add them in comments.

Third, I do look forward to the new year.  Despite many predictions from our wingnut friends, 2010 did not suck for me personally as much as 2009 did.  If they want to think that one election can affect one's view of the real, then fine.  That's how they're wired. I don't agree with the fear narrative, and 2010 didn't scare me all that much.  How 'bout you?

In truth, there seems to be a lot to look forward to.  Even DoughBob LoadPants sees that equal rights for GBLT individuals is inevitable.  Minority voting blocks continue to get stronger, changing hearts and minds along the way.  And the dinosaurs will continue to portray themselves as slow moving lizards when the majority of us have seen through the facade.

Come the new year, the new House leadership will require that the Constitution be read at the opening session, and then will do everything they can to violate it or ignore it.  Dinosaurs. 

In the Clown Circus, rule changes have been proposed and the dinosaurs struggle against this "power grab".   It will likely be seen for what it is, save that the left will be fearful as well.  There's likely no reason for the left to fear Senate rule reform.

I'm not making any predictions, here.  What will happen just happens.  In my mind, that was 2010 in a nutshell.  For me, 2009 was almost malicious in it's painful progress. 2010, was not so much.  So, let me praise 2011 as the hope we've been denied for so long.  It doesn't really matter whether I'm right or not.

Happy New Year.
