Here we are, the 1st of January 2015. We made it through another one, and while 2014 was a horrible year in so many respects (ISIS, plane crashes, Russia’s aggression, abandonment of Afghanistan and Iraq, release of Taliban terrorists, racial tensions stoked by our own government, etc etc), we can look to the action Americans took during the midterm election which was an undeniable rejection of the Obama agenda, and recognition of the failure of the destructive and craven administrative state.
If citizens had only the Old Media to rely upon, we would not have succeeded, but with the voices and strength of New Media, and fellowships like ours, we have not only a chance to take our country back, but if we stay focused, and inspired and challenged, I know we will be victorious.
Thank you all. Our work did not end on election day last year, it just began. The left and liberals will work to make 2015 as miserable as they are. I pledge to keep you informed and focused, and on occasion, entertained, so we can not just get through the next year (and two) but make sure it’s as good as possible.
Sending love and hugs to everyone! Here’s to being victorious over what every new day will bring!
Happy New Year to Tammy, Syd, Snoopy, (and let’s not forget Snuffy 🙂 ) and to all you amazingly amusing and clever and fabulously wonderful TAMS 🙂
Here is my New Year’s Resolution:
I resolve to be nicer to Libs, and to stop mocking and belittling them on Twitter….
Bwahahahahahahaha: Just kidding 🙂
Oh Shifra, I’m so relieved that was a joke. Don’t scare me like that!
Wishing all a wonderful 2015!
Happy New Year to all TAMS! Wishing all of you peace, health and prosperity in 2015.
Bonne année et bonne santé!
For consideration of 2015, here’s some history that occurred in 1915.
Sports: Babe Ruth hits his first home run.
Science: Einstein finishes development of the General Theory of Relativity (final publication was in 1916).
Culture 1: The film, The Birth of a Nation, premieres. (It would be the highest grossing film until Gone with the Wind, 1939. Pres. Woodrow Wilson, D, made it the first film to be screened in the White House.)
Culture 2: First full nudity of an actress, Audrey Munson in the film, Inspiration. (Ms. Munson (born in my hometown, Rochester, NY) was the top artist’s model in NYC for 10 years. She was known as both Miss Manhattan and The American Venus. She was the model for a number (15?) of statues in NYC. Tragically in 1919, the owner of the boarding home where she lived with her mother, murdered his wife so he would be available to marry Ms. Munson, though she had nothing to do with him romantically. The resultant publicity ended her modeling and film careers. Without the money, her mental health diminished and she ended up in a psychiatric facility until she died at 104.
My wish for 2015, the decrease of global warming by the reduction of hot air
coming from Al Sharpton.
May 2015 be a landmark year for the Tammy Army and its mission.
I don’t do resolutions. I do revolutions. How about a new American revolution to start off 2015 ?
Happy happy New Year Tammy, Shifra, Patricia and all you wonderful and amazing TAMs!
Happy New Year, peeps! Here’s hoping you all have a healthy and prosperous new year. Most of you don’t know that I am a personal finance nerd. Since financial freedom is part of many people’s goals for 2015, I’d like to share a few books that I’ve found very helpful on this front, if you please:
The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Classon—Classic collection of fables written in the 1920’s about thrift, financial planning, and wealth. <150 pages, simple & inspirational read, also great for older kids and teenagers who express an interest in money.
Making the Most of Your Money NOW by Jane Bryant Quinn—*Huge* book (over 1200 pages) but a great reference to keep on your bookshelf as it covers every financial topic you can imagine. It’s also surprisingly easy to read because the author (who is a journalist) explains things in clear, humorous language. She arranges the book so you don’t have to read it cover to cover; you can flip to whichever chapter discusses the topic you’d like to learn.
The Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey—absolutely the best book for anyone trying to get on a real budget and out of debt. Ramsey does not mince words, and some people are put off by his absolutist style, but he lays out a methodical plan that will work if you follow it.
Investing for Dummies by Eric Tyson—Don’t be insulted by the title. The “for Dummies” series books are very well organized and great starting points for any topic. This one explains investing in stocks, bonds, mutual funds, real estate, and small businesses. It also discusses how to avoid the pitfalls of each.
Enjoy! And remember to use Tammy’s Amazon link on the right if you want to order any of these 🙂
Oh Ashley, that is my dream! (if you recall, we met at TAMCON.) I love TMMO and long to master my financial world. My buzz word for the year is clean – clean eating, clean finances, clarity in my marriage to Smokey and mothering our 15-year-old son, clean creative path for a book I’ll be ghostwriting, clean house and of course I want to put the lean in clean! Thanks for sharing this tidbit about you! Alas, my Grandma who raised me from age 2 always used to say, “Tomorrow, we’ve GOT to get organized!” I always thought it we as charming but those things do rub off on us. Happy New Year!
Of course I remember you, Noonie 🙂 I’m not the most organized person on earth, but I put a lot of things like my savings and retirement contributions on autopilot (automatic monthly deductions from my checking account), so I don’t have to think about them.
Hey, look, an Obama voter.
