Yeah, with all the celebrities and other people who we, the masses care about or, at least, notice who’ve died over the course of 2016, this is definitely the #YearOfTheReaper.

Yep! Right now, that is the state of the “movers and shakers” on the left. They’re wandering in a desert wasteland of the broken hopes and dreams, wondering why they couldn’t convince the heartland of America to vote for Hillary or, at least, not vote for Donald Trump.

Obama’s Coal Black Yule

Yeah, I’m guessing – just guessing, mind you 😉 – Obama didn’t have a very merry Christmas this year. Then he not made the American people’s naughty list, he redefined what it meant by extending its nadir to depths never plumbed before – not even by Slick Willy, who plumbed a peck of “depths” while in the White House. 😉

This is especially true in that the incoming POTUS, Donald Trump, doesn’t hate the coal industry nearly so much Obama seems to. Hence, most of Obama’s attempts to destroy the industry that provides both fuel and jobs for so many Americans will likely be overturned and thwarted.

Of course, if Obama is a bit bitter about the gifts he’s received this year, that says more about his pettiness, delusions of worth, and ingratitude than anything else. As he hasn’t been beaten by birch branches or placed in the wicker man, he should be thankful, not petulant.
