For the most part I greatly admire the Amish tradition, that is except for their practice of shunning. But, in their mind it is necessary to keep the faith pure. For me, I need to keep my sanity in the coming year and I think a shunning will help me do that. That is what this post is all about.
I will admit that this holiday period which is soon over almost always put me in a depressive mood. I don’t totally know why that is but this time around I got a pretty good idea of a couple of its major sources and that is the current Oval Office occupant #CO3 and the people who put him there.
I can declare that at least to some degree they have ruined one of the final years of my life. I don’t know which one I despise more, but I am going to do something here at RJsCorner about it. Starting tomorrow, I am shunning both! I simply can’t let them ruin the beginning of this new decade. Hopefully, by this time next year they will be put on a very back burner where they belong.
In the coming year I am going to try my best to never mention that orange haired egotist’s name or the proudly ignorant who put him where he is. I will simply quit trying to figure them out, they are not worth any of the time I have left. They are shunned as far as RJsCorner goes. I know I will likely break my vow at least a couple of times during the year, but I am firmly set on keeping this resolution as much as humanly possible.
But one thing I will not do is allow them to keep me from discussing who I think our next president should be. I will be looking to the future and ignoring much of the present and past, especially for what happens inside the beltway. I know this decision will likely reduce my view counts here but I don’t care. I love my loyal viewers and hope they stick around for what I have to say about other things.
Being the masochist 😜, I am also working on three new blogs to keep me occupied during this cold and housebound season and to give me purpose for the coming new decade.
- One will be artistic in nature
- Another will be centered around my recent fascination with signs and symbols all the way from caveman images to today’s emojis.
- And finally, the most ambitious of all, is a site for RescuingDemocracy via a grass-roots movement!
I will explain those further in the coming weeks as they develop. I need new challenges in my life and I think these three topics will fit the bill fine for now.
Thanks for the best year yet here at RJsCorner. But, I think I can say with some certainty that
The Best Is Yet To Come

The very best to you in the coming year, RJ. Shunning is a worthwhile stance in our current environment. The man and his lemmings (followers) tend to suck all the oxygen out whatever space they occupy, so you work is cut out for you!
I look forward to your newest blogs. You inspire me with your passion and creativity.
Thanks for the encouragement Bob and Happy New Year to you and Betty. You, and several of your followers are much appreciated. In fact, almost one-third of my daily view count comes from your blog site. I think we feed off each other with our passion and ideas. And that is a good thing.
