    Question New Year Resolutions?

    With Christmas 2008 behind us, we look forward to the next festive event:
    New Years Day 2009. So I figured I better quit something as I try and (normally) fail miserably every New Year. President-elect BHO may make me give up my guns, but that is not really a bad habit, or something which will make me safer/live longer, although I may spend less on ammo, which will be just enough to make rolling me by any armed BG worth at least taking the $'s out of my bill-fold & my watch, ring(s) or maybe even my life worth their time.
    You could give up your home, job and all your savings, but again with a recession going down hard, that is prolly not on your list of things you want to part with, but may have to if you build/sell U.S.-made autos!
    Don't you love it when the government and/or the economy makes New Year resolutions for you that you better keep? Outsourcing your dreams & livelihood to 3-rd world nations.
    So let me see, something I could hack that is possible to give up and not be too far-fetched.
    1. Give up my nagging wife, nah, did that in 2000 and it cost me a chunk!
    2. Give up my cat, she died of old age in 2007 so I don't need to do that.
    3. Get more exercise, nah, I'm way too old to start every morning with a U.S. Army PT program and no way I'm jumping up & down in Spandex tights for that aging fairy Richard Simmons to some disco oldies.
    4. Give up drinking, 10 years since I did that so no go there.
    5. Give up smoking, now that would save me BIG time but tried that every New Year and failed within a week. Tobacco? Addictive? No way!
    6. Give up paying my taxes, I think I'll stick with smoking more and start-up binge drinking, much safer than p/o-ing the IRS!
    7. I'd love to give up using Windows (all builds) if only there was a better computer operating system available, other than Mac-attacks or Linux. (Sensing a flame coming!)
    All right USA Carry keep 'em clean, make 'em funny or just spill your guts and post what you DO plan on giving up for New Year, like reading my posts that always get verbose, colorful and drag on like some Congressional filibuster on valium. The perfect resolution and so easy to make & keep!

    Actually because I am not getting any younger and have not exercised for a while like I used to the thing I plan to do is give up sitting on my butt and start walking/running and weight training again. Also make some changes in my diet. Well at least that's my story and I am sticking to it.

    I've removed the storage items from my exercise room, and tuned up the bike (new tires & cables). Regimen starts as soon as the head cold ends.

    On a slightly more realistic plan, I'll have a firearm on lay-away continuously until DC stops gun sales. Everytime I pay one off, I'll just start paying for the next one.

    I just want a better paying job.

    When did the concept of New Year's resolutions start, anyway? Has anyone ever fulfilled a single resolution, ever?
