Bid Adieu To 2022

27 12 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

As 2022 comes to a close and 2023 beckons, best wishes to all for the holidays and the new year ahead.

Two earlier articles here encapsulated the “Helter Skelter” that lots of Americans and their counterparts globally were experiencing.[2]  The same thing is true today.[3]

Covid is still with us, although it has mutated and keeps on doing so, which is something that the world attributes—and ascribes correctly—to China.  It should have paid trillions of dollars in reparations globally, but it hasn’t paid a penny.  Quite to the contrary, it is threatening World War III.[4]

We do not have a legitimate President in the White House.  Rather, we have a mentally-challenged buffoon and crook, whose “Vice President” is waiting in the wings for him to croak.  Both are the laughingstock of the world.[5]

In the final analysis, however, there is always reason for hope and optimism—and Divine Order—because God exists and loves us.[6]  Do I expect you to agree with everything that I have written above and elsewhere?  Certainly not.  Each of us is a unique, one-of-a-kind creation of God, living this always-challenging earthly existence.

The madness even extends to end-of-season college football bowl games, which should be celebrations.

It is worth noting that “China deployed 71 warplanes to skies around Taiwan in a chilling ‘strike drill’ then blamed the US for ‘provocations’ and ‘collusion’ with self-governing island.”
