America, Here Are Your Resolutions for 2014.






Refrain from talking about, writing about, worrying about, or thinking about that Duck Dynasty fella.

Do what you can to encourage the government to create an honest, common sense, comprehensive, gun control law .

Refrain from talking about, writing about, worrying about, or thinking about Sarah Palin.

Stop using your mythological (religious) beliefs to bolster your prejudices .

Educate yourself on politics, politicians, and the political procedure in general.

Drink more wine.

Question any politician, media personality, or spin doctor who claims that taxes are the way they are because school teachers (or the police, fire departments, civil servants, etc) are being paid too much.

Stop being a zombie consumer. You already have enough stuff.

Stop celebrating mediocrity.

Read a book (but never one written by a “reality” show star, or a Fox News personality).

Enjoy a cocktail after work (our parents and grandparents were really onto something concerning this little vice).

Refuse to make snap judgments – explore all sides before you make a decision , no matter how difficult that might seem.

Stop and think (really hard) before you post anything on Facebook.

Never, ever, support anyone or anything that reeks of homophobia.

Never, ever, support anyone or anything that reeks of misogyny.

Never, ever, support anyone or anything that reeks of racism.

Stop voting against your own interests.

At least one day a month, put your cynicism on the back burner.

Stop acting like a victim, we've all been sucker-punched, you are not alone.

And finally, and most importantly, take care when embracing advice found on the internet.
