Boxing Day: You’ll Need A Plan

And all of a sudden here it is Boxing Day,

and ironically it’s not Caturday.

As we’ve discussed in the past the name, origin and traditions of Boxing Day are disputed, as are most things these days. But in America it’s traditionally been a day set aside for post-Christmas-sales shopping and returns. Back in the olden days (pre-cooties) people would swarm back to the cheerfully over-decorated malls they had sworn just one short week ago to never, ever return to in search of bargains. Amazon has negated the need for such suicidal behavior. Now you can pick up bargains on stuff you don’t need, don’t want and likely will end up giving away before the Fourth of July from the comfort of your own home.

I am certain that many of us are just anxious to wrap up this year which has been another dumpster fire from start to finish thanks in no small part to our resident Oblivious-in-Chieftain. You’ll be pleased to know that the man who recently embraced a constituent’s “let’s go Brandon” sentiment with apparent enthusiasm has also been named to the list of “World's Most Admired” men of 2021. Which perhaps tells you everything you need to know about the state of the world these days. Joe Biden, “champion of the little guy,” has a plan for everything from Building Back Better to World Peace. All we have to do is get out of his way and let him implement “the plan.”

tyson3Happy Boxing Day Joey, I hope your plans go awry.

Oh, and just a reminder: Kwanzaa starts today. You remember Kwanzaa, the bonus holiday founded by a felon with the intent of dividing Americans by alienating blacks from the Christian holidays that unite us. So far that plan seems to be working.
