Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Saying Goodbye To 2017!!!
It’s a hard thing to admit. Time waits for no one. The future is always coming, always pressing, pushing, prodding, & rushing towards us faster and faster. In my mind…2017 flew by like a blurred picture of a highway with brilliant streaking red lines and white lines lighting up an enigmatic winding and curving highway in the dark. Here’s to saying goodbye to the first year into this wicked, egotistical, self-centered douchebags presidency in which we’ve seen Trump do everything in his power to undue any positives from President Barack Obama’s presidency that would help the average American citizen.
Here’s to saying goodbye to a year that saw countless numbers of cops walk “Scott-free” from clear cases of murder under the justification of fear for their own lives as the default excuse for the murder of unarmed Afro-American people (Men, women and children alike).
Here’s to saying goodbye to a year in which the GMen have been the worst football team in NYC let alone the NFC East which is a feat that is unfathomable as a Giants’ fan with the knowledge that Eli has 2 Super Bowl rings and victories over the “GOAT” one Tom Brady & his vaunted Patriots. Here’s to saying goodbye to a year that has seen more terror attacks in NYC and the world abroad than has been recalled in recent memory since 9/11 2001. Back then I was a new college graduate and coming home to NYC was all I could think about. Getting back to what made sense and being able to see other faces that at least in pigmentation resembled my own was a necessity.
Here’s to saying goodbye to a year in which I saw so many tumultuous familial ordeals unfold one after the other yet still having the faith in God and the resolve to keep on pushing day after day towards a goal of better things to come despite the pitfalls and obstacles that our old adversary continues to throw out day in and day out. Here’s to welcoming in a new year with the promise of a better tomorrow, new friendships, new experiences, new lessons, and to overcoming the year prior.Here’s to saying goodbye to a year of setbacks, delays, and distractions from achieving previous goals set.
Here’s to saying Goodbye to a year in which we saw one Colin Kaepernick’s public -/blacklisting by the NFL while he received the honor of Time’s Person of the Year. Interesting how now the media’ s attention has turned more towards Lavar Ball than to the original message of Colin’s protest in the first place. America has a fickle & very short-term memory. Now instead of police brutality, corruption, and state sponsored murder of Afro-American people being the front page news.
We’re inundated daily with the real “fake news” of what Lavar Ball has said or what his kids have done vs the lack of attention to the blatant and willful miscarriage of justice incessantly for murderous law enforcement officers, given a pass for their killings of unarmed people of color with impunity. Now the attention turns to terrorism as long as we don’t mention white faces as the current standard bearers for that title’s distinction.
Here’s to saying Goodbye to Roy Moore and all the sexual harassment or abuse scandals that have sprung up and spread like the wild fires in California which haven’t been seen to this extent since they came for Bill Cosby. Here’s to the pot calling the kettle black. LMAO!!! 2018 you can’t get here soon enough and the world can’t hardly wait.
