off his board duties for Halliburton and Big Oil companies. He shoots
himself in the foot while hunting.

and takes Mickey and Minnie hostage.
9. Weinstein Brothers buy Osama and Zawahiri films and make a
documentary. They win Cannes, Sundance, Academy, and Nobel Prize, for best
picture for the advancement of appeasement. It becomes official movie to the
Democratic election effort.

in class while conservatives earn the right to be shot.
11. Mike Tyson makes comeback as a Special Olympian.

They are called "liberals."
20. I was going to be a psychic, but there's no future in it.
There you have it, the next year laid out for you.
Men, unless you're a "writer", you'll have to find your own scam to avoid
the dredge of being dragged along as an ornament to "Girl's Night Out" or
some other hideous soiree.
