While waiting to see if New York Times Square New Years Eve Celebration organizers will ring out the old year with John Lennon's IMAGINE for yet a 3rd year in a row... Here's a video of all the DC protests I did NOT attend in 2009. Will my sabbatical end in 2010?? The Magenta line above is the number of current sunspots, filling them with energizing negative ionization. As you can see there are ZILCH motivating people right now - but don't tell that to Iranian protesters.
Iran's authoritarians will fall within two years, you can bet on it. Maybe China's will within 5? And AMERICA's???? Time will tell... Depending in part on whether we Gandhian feminist secessionists get our butts moving...
Midnight Update: Fox News yappers admitted it's a yearly tradition to play IMAGINE - and kept yapping. At least NBC let them just play the music! Let's fulfill the promise of the song a good bit more in this new year of 2010.

Twenty-one days to solstice. My favorite holiday. The sun is coming back and we won't freeze in the dark!
Above is a decoration that won't win the Christmas home decorations contest, but might win the pagan one! Yoo Ha! And that's just three years from any and all 2012 winter solstice events. In my optimistic opinion, will usher in the AGE OF AQUARIUS, something so much prophesized by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse of Love - John, Paul, George and Ringo.
Of course, I still went to the 2012 movie for the thrills and chills of giant earthquakes, 2000 foot tsunamis and the hero John Cusak's efforts to save his family - not to mention innocently kill off his ex-wife's new husband. But there hasn't been a massive crustal shift like that in 200 million years, so what's to worry?
The biggest political message of the movie (besides that all the politicians manage to save themselves on the big arks, and 2/3 of them seem to be male) is made by a character who remarks on seeing the 5 or 6 giant Arks built in three years inside a mountain - "Only the Chinese could do this!!!" Yup, in this movie the Chinese save the world. Of course, most of them also get inundated.
Luckily, Africa raises 2000 feet while everything else evidently sinks, so it doesn't get inundated. So look out for a couple hundred thousand homeless imperialists in Arks, my African friends!

WikiCommons file photo says: "Wild marijuana plant growing near Islamabad, which you may see throughout the region of Afghanistan, Pakistan and northwest India. These wild plants grow everywhere you see weed plants but people do not use these plants as drugs." Forty years after I first smoked pot, and stupid patriarchs are still killing men, women and children in stupid wars. Obama is only different in making a few more extravagant promises which he has not kept.
