Dubai appears to have broken the record for the largest fireworks display of all time this New Year’s Eve. The firework display was designed by famed U.S. fireworks firm Fireworks by Grucci.

The show started 20 seconds before midnight local time, and covered 61.6 miles of the city’s waterfront, encompassing landmarks like the Palm Jumeirah and the World Islands — Dubai’s two sets of manmade islands — and the Burj Khalifa skyscraper and Burj Al Arab, the city’s most luxurious hotel, according to Guinness World Records.

and never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot
and days of auld lang syne?
For auld lang syne, my dear,

we’ll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

Should auld acquaintance be forgot

Should auld acquaintance be forgot

And here’s a hand, my trusty friend
And gie’s a hand o’ thine
We’ll tak’ a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne.

An Obama Happy New Year … Fiscal Cliff or Not Americans Face $1 Trillion Obamacare Tax Hike Hitting on January 1, 2013

Taxation without any responsible representation … The Obama taxes!!!

America, get ready for the tax hikes on everyone that you voted in when Barack Obama won reelection. Thanks to that misguided and uninformed election Americans now face a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike beginning January 1, 2013 … Happy New Year. So you thought that by participating in Obama’s class warfare against the so called rich would not effect you, eh? Think again … it all trickles down. All these Obamacare taxes and Obamacare still does nothing what it originally claimed to do.

$ 1 Trillion !!!

On January 1, regardless of the outcome of fiscal cliff negotiations, Americans will be hit with a $1 trillion Obamacare tax hike.

Obamacare contains twenty new or higher taxes. Five of the taxes hit for the first time on January 1. In total, Americans face a net $1 trillion tax hike for the years 2013-2022, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The five major Obamacare taxes taking effect on January 1 are as follows: (full pdf doc can be read HERE)

  1. The Obamacare Medical Device Tax - Medical device manufacturers employ 409,000 people in 12,000 plants across the country. Obamacare imposes a new 2.3 percent excise tax on gross sales – even if the company does not earn a profit in a given year.  In addition to killing small business jobs and impacting research and development budgets, this will increase the cost of your health care – making everything from pacemakers to artificial hips more expensive. The Patriot Perspective discusses exactly what this means. It is insane to make any industry pay a tax on their gross sales, versus net.
  2. The Obamacare Flex Account Tax
  3. The Obamacare Surtax on Investment Income
  4. The Obamacare “Haircut” for Medical Itemized Deductions
  5. The Obamacare Medicare Payroll Tax Hike
Good grief, remember when VP Joe Biden said during the 2012 campaign that Biden and Obama want to raise taxes by $1 trillion and people thought it was a Biden gaffe? Guess what, he was not kidding. America, you elected people who want to raise taxes rather than cut spending and govern within their means. I cannot wait until the tax on the rich proves to be the joke it is as it only pays for 7 days of government and they come after all of your money as well. What will Americans say then? Folks, there is a reason why there is a limit on a credit card.

American Band Stand & New Year’s Rockin’ Eve’s Dick Clark Dead at the Age of 82 … Rest in Peace

It is the death of an American icon … TV legend Dick Clark, the world’s oldest teenager dead at the age of 82.

It is truly a sad day as a piece of my childhood died today as Dick Clark passed away at the age of 82. According to reports, Dick Clark passed away from a massive heart attack at St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica, CA. The man was a part of millions of people’s homes. The oldest teenager has passed … Dick Clark will be missed.

Who didn’t grow up with Dick Clark ringing in the New Year with “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve? I can remember the very first one transitioning from Guy Lombardo to a more hip way to ring in the New Year. I cannot remember a year that Dick Clark was not a part of my New Year’s except in 2004, when Clark suffered a stroke that left him partially paralyzed and struggling to speak. I have to admit that the following year when a speech impaired Dick Clark counted down 2005, several tears came rolled down my face as Mr. Clark struggled through the countdown that had been the trademark of his career.

Dick Clark: 1929-2012


Dick Clark, the creator of “American Bandstand” and “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” died Wednesday morning.

He was 82.

Clark suffered a massive heart attack after entering St. John’s Hospital in Santa Monica on Tuesday night for an outpatient procedure, his family said in a statement.

Attempts to resuscitate him were unsuccessful.

Clark had suffered a stroke in 2004, which forced him to significantly curtail his hosting of “New Years’ Rockin’ Eve,” a show he created in 1972.

American Bandstand – Dick Clark – 2/12/66

ABC News has more from the life and time of Dick Clark and the New York Times.

Born in Mount Vernon, N.Y., on Nov. 30, 1929, Richard Wagstaff Clark began his lifelong career in show business began before he was even out of high school. He started working in the mailroom of WRUN, a radio station in upstate New York run by his father and uncle. It wasn’t long before the teenager was on the air, filling in for the weatherman and the announcer.

“American Bandstand’s” formula was simple. Clean-cut boys and girls danced to the hottest hits and the newest singles. In between, Clark chatted with the teens, who helped “rate-a-record,” turning songs into sensations. Everyone showed up on “American Bandstand,” from Elvis Presley to Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry to Chubby Checker.

“Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve” on ABC became a Dec. 31 tradition, with Clark hosting the festivities for more than three decades, introducing the entertainment acts and, of course, counting down to midnight as the ball dropped in New York’s Times Square.

Dick Clark discusses the genesis of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve

Rest in Peace Dick Clark … you brought so much joy to so many. You will forever be a part of News year’s forever. God Bless.

CNN Does Anything for Ratings … New Year Eve Host Kathy Griffin Strips Down to Underwear & Begs Anderson Cooper to take His Off

Kathy Griffin’s clothes drop prior to the ball …

With CNN’s low ratings, it is obvious that they will do anything for ratings … thus, off come Kathy Griffin’s clothes. It is obvious that CNN wants the awkward banter between Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin. For a square, Anderson Cooper made the comment, “you got a rockin body”.

Before the ball dropped in Time Square New York last night ushering in 2012 … CNN’s New Years Eve host Kathy Griffin’s clothes dropped down to her underwear in from of a supposed shocked Anderson Cooper. Sorry, after year after year of comedian Kathy Griffin’s antics on New Years Eve, this cannot come as a shock to CNN. One might even think that it is scripted. Although edgy, Girffin’s actions last night were actually far more tame than in previous years like THIS and THIS.
