Whad’ya Know for The Year of the Pig

February 4, 2019

Hear Ye, Hear Ye:  The State of the Feldman

 

Ms Speaker, the rest of you.

Wasn’t 2018 a great year? And the President says they will keep getting greater for the foreseeable future, or 2 years, whichever comes first.

The Whad’ya Know beat went on, miss you Sonny, in 2018, as it did in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013, ellipse, ellipse, ellipse, and so on. So forth would be overdoing it.

2019 is no exception, except for it being the Year of the Pig making me a little uneasy as you might expect, or it could be whatever this is right here which bothers me at night.

Without further adieu- Whad’ya Know for the Year of the Pig–
