Death & Hope & Happy New Year!  
Doodling here while I watch cartoons with The Niece. Death to 2016. Hope for 2017. I showed it to The Nephew & Sis and said, "See, 2016 is dead. 2017 is gonna be better," and Sis said, "Uuuhhh, are you sure about that?" and I said, "No, but I'm gonna pretend I have hope." Anyways, I'm starting out the new year with a terrible sore throat and cough, but The Nephew and I will be staying up to watch the ball drop in Times Square because he's never seen it before. I hope however you are celebrating, or not celebrating, that you have a good night and that 2017 brings you good things.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Oh no! So sorry you getting sick. I hope it's a false alarm.

2016 was a dreadful year and I just did an entry about it.

It was not a false alarm, I completely lost my voice for two days! All is well now though. <3

2016 was a dreadful year

It was. And 2017 is not shaping up much better. It's only just begun, I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt here, but 2017 better start behaving itself!

I don't hold out much hope for 2017 unless the Republicans in Congress grow a spine and stand up to Trump. He's a menace!!

Agreed. And I don't think republicans even have spines, so I doubt that'll happen. ;) But The Resistance is growing every day, so maybe, just maybe, it'll be The People that make the change. (or Dump will really fuck up and get impeached and then we can start in on Pence).

...(or Dump will really fuck up and get impeached and then we can start in on Pence).

For me, impeachment is the ONLY solution to the Trump travesty. At least Pence is more of a normal human being, even if I don't like his politics. He actually speaks in coherent sentences, complete with verbs. *rolls eyes*

In the end, I think impeachment will be the only solution to Dump, tbh. I think *ence will be far less likely to start World War III, but I still don't want him, mainly due to his rigid and bigoted stance on gay rights.

As the resistance keeps saying, one problem at a time. Let's get rid of one and then we'll worry about the other. To which I agree.

Agreed. One thing at a time. It's too overwhelming otherwise.

"There is always hope."

Happy New Year to you and your family. May it be blessed!

"There is always hope."

I keep thinking of Gandalf's line, "So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Also, after seeing Rogue One, I have adopted a line from that for my tumblr tag for the resistance against Dump's regime: "Rebellions are built on hope."

Hope you soon feel better.

I lost my voice for a few days over the new year, but all is well now! <3s
