Year by year by year, the Worry Nest keeps filling-up, dumps out, and then the Worry Nest once again fills up. A Worry Nest or a Concern List or the Newest Anxiety List, and what is your greatest worry right now? And where does your worries fit into which year? Or are your worries on every single List for the years 2015-2018?
But the real oddity or, should I say, the real question are these really new worries or is it just the same ole thing? And take a moment to reflect back to what was exactly in the News during these years? Are these worries our real worries or are they the Artificial Creations by a Media Source? By the Government? By a foreign Government? By a mass of College Professors? Or was it just a bunch of gremlins who got together and simply had too much to drink and then this drunken group agreed to put out the New Worry Nest List for all to become worried about? And do they follow the book or an already arranged Agenda?
But dang it and gosh darn it, I have come to one absolute observation and that is AMERICANS KNOW HOW TO WORRY THE HELL OUT ABOUT SOMETHING. And we sure do and that includes me too. And worry adds up to alcohol or drugs or just a good dose of unneeded anxiety. And if Adults are worrying all about this and that, the youngsters are too. And how are we getting to these worries?
I really don’t know and I do find it interesting to remember exactly what was going on during each year and then-KaPow! It’s in that year’s Worry Nest.
But hey, I’m not going to lead you into the rabbit hole without an escape and that escape is for you to take a moment to check on the hottest, the biggest news stories for each year too. So, I’ve included a link for each year so that you can see what everyone was thinking were the biggest News Stories of that year and you make the judge if any of them did in fact play a part in our National Worry List-
