Welcome to 2018 everybody!
I hope you all had a safe New Year’s Eve.
I spent last night watching movies huddled under blankets while scouring Amazon for the perfect fleece balaclava. How about you?
Once again on this New Year, I am thrilled to feature artist Janet Burroff.
Janet let me use her 2017 New Year image last year and as soon as she unveiled the 2018 image, I was right there begging for the chance to feature it.
Call it our New Year tradition.
It’s true; January first is just another day.
But it’s hard not to have a sense of hope and anticipation for the new year.
In fact, when President Trump tweeted out this video yesterday, I definitely did feel hope and anticipation for 2018.
What a year it’s been, and we're just getting started. Together, we are MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! Happy New Year!! pic.twitter.com/qsMNyN1UJG

And the happenings in Iran also fill me with hope. Perhaps the people of Persia will overthrow the tyrants who stole a country and enslaved a people nearly forty years ago.
Or, to put it another way, may 2018 be the year that they Make Iran Persia Again.
On a personal note, I just finished the 2017 End of Year Fundraiser. And I wanted to take a moment to thank those who made donations.
To Anne G., Merryl R., Georgene K., Anne D., Andrew M., Claudia B., Greg Z., Charles, D., George W., Charlene G., Brad W., Erik T., Doug L., Maggie W., Doug and Rose, Marta and Ray: Thank you for your generous contributions.
The T-shirt raffle will not be conducted until next week. I want to give time for any other mail-in donations to arrive and be included.
I am always humbled by the support shown to Patriot Retort throughout the year.
And I am so grateful for all of you who have made PatriotRetort.com a stop on your travels through the internet.
My New Year wish is that I gain the upper hand over Lupus and have the physical ability to spend more time posting here. I’m sure you guys wouldn’t mind it if I posted more often. Heaven knows my mom would be thrilled.
Any old how.
With such supportive and faithful readers, I am certain that 2018 will be another wonderful year of political commentary and satire here at Patriot Retort.
Happy New Year my friends!
