Right here,right now

Right here,right now
Watching the world wake up from history

Hello Everyone!!!! This is one of those group e-mails that are shot out at the last minute to wish everyone a MERRY CHRISTMAS or whatever you celebrate (or If you celebrate anything at all) and a HAPPY NEW 2024!!! Sort of just realized that Christmas is Monday! For those of you who are new to my mailing list I do this year-end review every year.I have been doing this for every year since 2004.These reviews are fairly lengthy so I reckon most of you probably don't even read it.Those of you who do, thank you. The review is available all year round on my website at:http://hitsofalldecades.com/chart_hits/

This year like last year and the year before I have images that shaped 2023.Each one of these images will be addressed in my year-end review.Now I will begin the year-end review.Every year I start with the news and first discuss issues related to the USA and then I will discuss issues regarding other parts of the world.Some issues are intertwined as they involve more than one country.Then I do the obituaries,then sports, then entertainment and the closing.The topics look at several events of the past year.So hold your breath now and let's begin by looking at what has transpired in this world that we live in over the past 365 days.




 REAL NEWS-NOT CNN INTRODUCTION 

Every year I choose a song that typifies the year.My song
that typifies 2023 is a song titled "Right Here,Right Now" by
Jesus Jones a British alternative rock band from 
Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire.On July 27,1991 the song peaked 
at #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 only to be kept out of #1 by
Bryan Adams' song (Everything I Do) I Do It for You.
"Right Here,Right Now" was inspired by the Revolutions of 1989 
in Europe,particularly Perestroika in the Soviet Union.Mike
Edwards of "Jesus Jones" has said that some of the lyrics were
influenced by the band's experiences playing in Romania in 
February 1990 shortly after the overthrow of Nicolae Ceauescu.
If you ask me The song was released prematurely.In 1991 the 
world was witnessing the fall of the Soviet Empire.In 2013 
economist US Max Keizer said when the Soviet Empire fell.It 
fell out a one story window:when the US Empire falls it will 
fall out of a 20 story window.And in 2023 the US Empire is 
falling.I will discuss this in more detail later.
   Remember KNOWLEDGE IS POWER-In the early 17th century,Sir 
Francis Bacon,who served as Lord Chancellor of England,
in the court of King James I,said "knowledge is power."
He imagined that knowledge could be the key to steadily
improving the conditions of daily life.At a time when western
civilization believed that the only truths were the ones which
have stood the test of time,where all attention was on life 
everlasting,Bacon could conceive of a new form of knowledge.It
would come from studying the world as our 5 senses perceive it.
He dreamed that the empirical study of nature could yield the
knowledge that could make life on earth more livable.But,as he 
also said,"nature to be commanded, must be obeyed." That meant studied.

  The News I display here is not CNN,MSNBC,the BBC or FOX News.
It is real news.I will post things you will not read or hear in 
the mainstream media.Now I will start the 2023 Review by discussing 
the big stories that has affected  nearly every country in the world 
for 2023.
