Compared to the chaos of 2020 and 2021, last year was just boring.
There was no lockdown to boost big pharma. No quarantine has caused everyone to gain 30 pounds and lift the diet and fitness industry. bottom.
There was no attempt by the crooks and their minions to overthrow democracy. (Kali Lake got a bit of the playbook, though.) No black woman ever became the second most powerful person in the world for the first time, but she used her position to disappear. .
And instead of rocketing the rich to become the Jetsons and the rest to be the Flintstones, Elon Musk bought Twitter so people could go there and ignore Donald Trump again. bottom.
2022:Looking back on politics this year
So I hope 2023 will be more interesting in a good way. Think of this as an informal monthly wish list.
Acquire the Speaker of the House who can restore order in the Republican Party. The Far Right now dominates the process.
How cool would it be if dozens of rational Republicans crossed over and helped Hakeem Jeffries dominate the floor? Let
Common sense laws may be passed. There will be room for cooperation across the aisles. And that would set the tone that the U.S. government is functioning and ready to serve all people.
A federal law was enacted to lengthen February by a few days so that Black History Month is more than just a 28-day punchline.
And, assuming the House isn’t hijacked by far-right fringes, could legislation be enacted that benefits black people? We can finally end the sentencing divide in the law.
And while we’re at it, would it be too much to ask for a law to ban all social media instead of just banning Tik Tok on government phones? will actually get to talk to other people instead of going through stupid echo chambers.
Daylight Savings Time is finally going away and we’re moving to one time zone for the whole country. I’m not the only one in Arizona who is tired of explaining to people in the Midwest: Only two.
Also, I’m not the only one who’s tired of watching eggheads break their abacai (abacai?) to figure out when the Cardinals play the Giants when the game starts at noon Eastern . Even if it’s better than watching Kari Lake voters take off their shoes and do the same math.
No April showers in the West, so could Elon Musk turn his Tesla, SpaceX, or Twitter into a think tank that makes it rain like a rapper in an Atlanta nightclub?
How about having someone plant enough flowers to bring back the bees and butterflies before cloning all the crops in the lab?
Speaking of water, perhaps June will be the month to lock all Western decision makers in a windowless room and give them the beans until they can come up with a solution to the reality that Lake Mead is basically a puddle?
Forget immigration at the southern border. We need to stop immigrants from the East and Canada from coming here with children, pets and plants.
Let’s make it a year when all the fireworks shows are on July 4th. Dogs and veterans with PTSD don’t need to hear blasts from every suburban municipality during their nearly seven-day “holiday weekend.”
The federal election may be an off year, but it’s never too early to talk about control of the Senate!
I want Herschel Walker to register as a Democrat in Arizona and have Kirsten talk all about vampires in cinema “don’t call me McCain” from here until 2024.
Doug Ducey kept saying he wasn’t going to run, but we all know he laces up his Nike track shoes.
And while we’re talking about former NFL star Walker, can football start in September and end in January like the good old days?
Also, Friday nights are for high school. Saturday is college. (Have you heard of Pac-12? It’s Satur-DAYS. No more late night starts when Saturday’s college games end about 20 minutes before Sunday’s NFL games return east.)
And would the NFL be happy to have games on Sundays and Mondays?
You don’t have to play soccer every day. Least of all players.
Will Halloween be good for kids again?
“Skiply Pocahontas” was never a good costume choice. (“You see?” says the idiot, “I’m a ‘one night stand!’ Amyrite?! See what I did there?”)
Don’t let the Christmas season begin until Thanksgiving is over.
Donald Trump has announced that he is running for president…of the world! His running mates are Kari Lake and Kanye West. (Hey, this is Donald we’re talking about. Why should he have one?)
Trump changed his middle name to Kijon. And they form a KKK ticket!
Naturally, they would lose the election for a fictitious position, demand a recount, and hire a new company to do it: Kcyber Ksamurai Kninjas!
