What a year it’s been. While there are so many things we have to be thankful for from 2016, we’ve had our speed bumps as well. Here are 10 things we’d be happy to leave behind as we bring in 2017.
1) Clinton Politics
America has spoken (twice). With Hillary’s defeat in November, it has become quite clear that the American people believe Clinton politics are a thing of the past. After thirty years of Clintons in our political system, it’s time for them to retire and leave 2017 to some fresh faces.
Let’s be honest, you’re not even allowed to have them in most places – it’s time to forget them all together.
3) Celebrities Pushing a Political Agenda
You’re famous because you can sing. Stop using that influence to push a political agenda, we don’t care who you’re voting for. We don’t care that you’re going to “move to Canada” – we care that your concert tickets are outrageously priced.
4) Pokemon Go
We get it, the app makes kids exercise. It also makes them run out in traffic and stampede businesses they don’t intend to shop at. Enough is enough. Go for a walk to enjoy nature rather than chasing creatures around the city.
5) The Dab
6) The idea that socialism is cool
The idea that everyone is entitled to an equal outcome has been all the rage this year. Struggling millennials latched onto Bernie Sanders and his campaign for equality. In 2017, let’s come back down to earth and remember that free stuff isn’t actually free.
7) Man Buns
I’ll admit, this was cool for a while. The rugged look definitely had it’s moment, but I’m afraid that moment has passed. On the contrary, a clean cut man in a suit will never get old.
You have a First Amendment right to protest, I will absolutely respect that. You do not have a right to burn businesses, homes, and towns to express your dissatisfaction. Do your local law enforcement a favor and leave the violence in 2016.
