What will the New Year bring

What will the New Year bring?

We’ve made our mistakes with love we learned that it can’t promise us
Tomorrow and forever things what will the new year bring

Out with the old in with the New Year

 

New Year is always a time of hope – things will be a little better and if not better no worse. Before we jump into 2016, let’s see where we been in 2015.

1. ISIS struck terror world-wide, setting off attacks in Europe, North America, and the Middle East just to name a few. Where did these guys come from? What happened to Al-Qaeda and who are ISIL and Daesch. Are we playing whack-a-mole?

2. As a result of the conflict in Syria and Afghanistan and Yemen, more than a million refugees streamed into Europe.

3. The United States and Cuba restored diplomatic relations. That is a good thing.

4. The United States and Iran struck a nuclear deal. That could be a good thing.

5. Greece goes bust triggering the Great Greek Depression. That’s bad if you’re Greek.

6. The Trans-Pacific Partnership is created which affects 40% of the world trade. The stock value of Marshall’s and Ross dress for less goes up, but otherwise nobody notices.

7. Russia flexes its muscles in Syria and continues its foray into the Ukraine after already having annexed the Crimea and gets away with it.

8. The world (196 people pretending to represent 7 billion people) strikes a deal on climate change or acts like it has since there are no enforcement mechanisms and they agree to allow the climate to heat up. That’s not a good thing.

9. China builds islands in the South Pacific. That is a sleeper but it could be a very big deal.

10. The Arab Spring has become stormy and rainy.

What will what the New Year bring?

 

Let’s ask Donna Fargo whose 1975 song posed simpler questions and answers.

 

This past year was good to us the one before just a little rough
The one before that was an awful thing what will the new year bring
Will it bring us a little boy to fill our lives with love and joy
We’ve had our share of growing pains what will the new year bring
You’re still one and one makes two now one and one make one
I hope you will love me throughout the year to come

We’ve made our mistakes with love we learned that it can’t promise us
Tomorrow and forever things what will the new year bring
Wish I hadn’t read our horoscope things look stormy for Scorpios
Virgo’s posed to sprout their wings what will the new year bring
Will you want me to love you the way you know I do
And will you walk through life with me another year or two
Or three or four or five or six hundred years or more
Happy New Year darling for whatever is in store
