Every time 2016 couldn't get any crazier--it does.
I claim to be raised by a TV. Lots of time in front of the screen between 1983 to 1997. After that, participating in global events was the deal. Post military, social media took the place of the major broadcast networks. Bringing it all together, staying abreast of world events has been a lifelong endeavor.
2016 is by far the wildest year I can remember. Every time the TV turns on, it's history. 30 years from now, it will be curious how the scholars record and teach the decisions we're about to make. If any of them ever find their way to the Combat Flip Flops website in their records, I hope they get a chuckle.
This Week's Talk $h!t Tuesday is brought to you by Vladimir Putin.
The Putin Crab: God Bless Google and what you find when you search "Putin" memes. Whoever put this together, Thank you.
In the end, it's tough to tell where this is going. Will we propel ourselves down the same conflict ridden path? Will we see a more clear future that involves truth, tolerance, and empathy?
Only time will tell.
