It's time to forget the bull and call the Democrats what they are. Communists.

I agree with only taking on one thing at a time....example i gave up soda for a month....and now rarely drink anything except water! Smaller goals lead to bigger changes!!!! Good luck fellow resolution makers!!!!

All my NYR is or New Years Resolution is, saying a daily Rosary once a day each night before I go to bed... That isn't to hard to do so I think I can keep it up...

If all people truly understood what is coming and why, their minds, attitude and direction would drastically change in ways people have no understanding of.

Having goals is great, what is has to do with a certain time of year I never really got, but whatever. The thing is it's all mind over matter. I didn't believe it either but the proof is there time and time again. Like with smoking, some people make it a few days, some a few weeks and others months or even years and many will fall back. Because of the triggers in our minds that associate with that habit. That is why hypnosis is so successful for those that can be hypnotized because it takes out that connection in the mind. Anyway....one has to be determined, mind made, done, for it to work, and more to the point, for it to last. Gotta give credit to those that keep trying also, one of those try's hope they/you all win!

so true!! people don't realize the power of 'making the decision' .. when the decision is made, you will then conquer the problem... most people fail because they 'think' they made the decision, but it was only a 'wish' there is a BIG difference!

btw, your right, people think just because a 'year' changes, they think it will make any difference to make that change, and it DOES NOT! its all in peoples heads, its not a new year, new month, etc, its a NEW DAY!
