The holidays are officially over. With no more festive distractions, all we have is a few football games to take our mind off the fact that it’s cold and wet and the sun disappears at 6 p.m. It’s a new year, a new decade (technically), and maybe… a new war? Trump decided to kick-off his potential (please, please God, please) last year in office by assassinating General Qassem Soleimani, one of the most powerful men in Iran, in an airstrike on Thursday. Meanwhile, Australia is literally on fire. It is only January 3.
We don’t know what else 2020 will bring and right now it’s looking pretty bleak. So, today, let’s go register to vote or double-check our voter registration status (random purging is still happening). Oh, and here are some funny tweets to read after.
