Looking Back at 2011

By Ron Hart




http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | This usually elicits many e-mails, but I am going to do it again anyway, here is my annual look back at the year:


1. Our military ended Bill Clinton's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy this year to little fanfare. There has been no fighting or rancor in the Army barracks to date, yet the real test will be when Glee is on the same night as the Alabama-LSU national championship football game.

2. Many in the black community, including BET's Tavis Smiley, blasted Obama for not being sensitive to African-Americans. To make matters worse, when he came back from Martha's Vineyard to make amends at a Congressional Black Caucus cocktail party, Obama kept handing his empty cocktail glass to Maxine Waters.

3. Dick Cheney hit all media outlets promoting his memoir. He miscalculated one appearance on MSNBC where he felt he would be greeted as a liberator.

4. Approval numbers are not good for Obama. Yet, after watching the first few GOP Presidential candidate's debates he sent a text upstairs to Michele Obama in their bedroom and told her she could stop packing.

5. Obama had his campaign conduct an online $5 raffle; the winner got a dinner with him. Second prize was a dinner and a speech.

6. Obama angered Native Americans, but agreed to make it up to them. He pledged to address the issue that is most hurting our Native Americans, card counting.

7. California, with businesses leaving the state over taxes saw unemployment over 12%. With free internet porn and an AIDS scare, the adult film industry has slowed down, resulting in laying off half their workforce of 4000 "actors" and one writer. I think his name is Murray.

8. Unlike Barry Bonds, pitcher Roger Clemens seems to have skated on steroid use charges after testifying before Congress. He was such an accomplished liar that both Parties are recruiting him to run for office.

9. TSA is continuing to overstep the bounds of reason. Yet they somehow maintain they are stopping criminals at airports, yet merchants there still charge $5 for a bottle of water.

10. Obama visited England, and was hosted by the Queen. Turns out he likes tea parties there better than the ones in America.

11. Oprah retired. She made women "spiritual" rather than religious, and left millions of unread Mayo Anglo books on Middle-American women's Wal-Mart purchased bookshelves--- right next to How to Lose Forty Pounds in Forty Days.

12. The Herman Cain-train derailed in December, after touching so many. He surged in the polls after five women came out with sexual harassment charges. Then one woman said they had a 13-year affair and it was over—a GOP candidate's campaign crumbles under a consensual relationship.

13. Governor Chris Christie had quite a following early in the year, and not just by ivory poachers. Then he said he was not running. Now he said he is not doing sit ups either.

14. Bernie Madoff has 147 years to go in prison, but if not get "revenge embezzled" in the yard working out, Bernie should be in killer shape when released.

15. If you do not have an excuse, Obama will continue to provide one for you. Obama recently blames the "last few decades" for our economic woes. As we know, there is no more dangerous threat to this country than Gerald Ford thirty something years ago.

16. Al Gore turned 63, and celebrated quietly by spending the evening giving lady massage therapists directions to his house.

17. Democrats will play the race card yet again against the GOP nominee. I am sure he will not even be able to separate his laundry without being called racist.

18. Bin Laden was shot around the time Nancy Grace exposed herself on Dancing with the Stars. Wisely, Obama refused to release the pictures of either.

19. Republicans did 50 debates. For a group that says they dislike government interfering, they certainly have interfered a lot in our lives. Mitt Romney said Newt Gingrich is "too zany to be President." Newt responded by honking a bike horn, hitting him in the face with a pie and chasing him around the podium with seltzer water.

20. Barney Frank retired, after giving us a housing crisis. He says he was never in bed with Fannie, but was mum about his involvement with Freddie.

21. The Democrats sent out protestors as a preamble to their campaign in the form of the Occupy Wall Street crowd attacking "the rich." They were angered when winos in the park started stealing their iPods, iPhones and money. Socialism is all cool until some losers started wanting to take your stuff.
