2021's shaping up to be a tough year for the United States of America. There are a number of cans that have been kicked down the road at least as far as the start of the new year. They're beginning to pile up.

The US Senate has proven itself unable to pass a second relief bill [Ed.: The House of Representatives passed one about 4 months ago,] and so money which would have helped to offset some of the problems to come will not be forthcoming. Those who have been granted a stay from eviction will find themselves faced with what, in essence, are balloon payments. Landlords will have to deal with their banks and the laws which, in a number of states, make evictions a lengthy process.

There's the stock market to consider. It's been propped up by a 'Helicopter Ben' series of inventive actions by the Fed, but sooner or later that great enemy of the economy, Reality, will make itself felt.

Also a force to be reckoned with are those who are disaffected by their government and its institutions. They presently form the voter-ship for President of the United States of America Donald Trump but should he lose, they will certainly not strike their tents and steal away into the political night.

You need but wait ... there's more.

A poem by Mr. Ogden Nash comes to mind:

“Tonight’s December thirty-first,
Something is about to burst.
The clock is crouching, dark and small,
Like a time bomb in the hall.
Hark, it's midnight, children dear.
Duck! Here comes another year!”

Regards, stay safe 'n well. Remember the Big 3: masks, hand washing and physical distancing.
