This Has Nothing To Do With Alan Greenspan | - Part 5

The Elephant Not in the Room

We will find out soon enough if the absence of front-runner Donal Trump at last night’s Republican presidential debate has any impact on his chance of capturing the GOP nomination. Meanwhile, cartoons such as the one below are providing a boost for those already weary of the marathon 2016 presidential election cycle.

From the Dana Summers archive at the Tribune Content Agency.

John Oliver on New Years Resolutions

Still on hiatus (and not returning until next month?!), HBO’s John Oliver details how we should modify our New Years resolutions in order to increase the possibility of succeeding (either that, or being better able to rationalize why we’ve again failed).

Don’t know about you, but I’ve not made any New Years resolutions in years…

North Korea and their Bombs

Financial markets likely see this as “piling on”, what with the Saudis causing trouble in the Middle East and China again teetering as politburo members attempt to prop up the stock market, all of which is setting the stage for another potentially horrific day on Wall Street.

I’ve tried to watch some of those PBS and Vice News documentaries about what life is really like in North Korea but they’re all so thoroughly depressing that I never make it to the end.

For those who like gallows humore, there’s this:

Here’s North Korea’s official hydrogen bomb statement. It’s a doozy.

Seth Meyers on Donald Trump

With actual voting only a month away, Seth Meyers shares some thoughts about GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, related media coverage and national polling.

These two have a bit of history going back beyond the 2011 White House Correspondents Dinner that is likely to get a bit more attention in the months ahead.

Happy New Year!

A Jim Carrey Happy New Year – eleven years old and still very, very funny, though, for some reason this is no longer embeddable, so, you’ll have to watch it on YouTube.

Happy New Year to one and all and thanks for reading.
