“It’s 2018 for Gods sake”



This week I have listened to three different politician’s answer a question with, ” It’s 2018 for Gods sake”. What is so special about 2018?  Does this year have some significant meaning that I have missed?  Is the lion laying down with the lamb?  A nice metaphor but it’s been my experience that the lion will always devour the lamb. Are swords being melted down to make ploughshares? Does peace and harmony reign between different jurisdictions?  Is 2018 the year the world’s population embraces the “Gaia Theory” and we all live in harmony with the environment?

Did some ancient Greek politician exclaim ” It’s 200BC for Zeus sake” just before the Romans conquered and the world changed?

Did some ancient Roman politician exclaim ” It’s 375AD for Jupiter’s sake” just before the Goths descended on Rome and the world entered the Dark Ages.

Explain to Vladimir Putin, Kim Jong-In, Xi Jinping etc. etc.  etc. that we are in 2018 a new enlightened year. I would be interested in their response.

I was binge watching Jessica Jones on Netflix last night and consumed too much alcohol. My head is heavy.
