The last year that didn’t totally suck

I nominate 2013. Obama began his second term, there was no mid-term election, Ebola and the Russian invasion of Ukraine hadn’t happened yet, and neither had the Syrian refugee crisis.

2014 saw two of the events mentioned above and a nasty midterm election, and every year since then has been dominated by the fat fascist orange traitor, who in 2013 was just a random blowhard with a Twitter addiction.

What’s your nominee for “most recent non-horrible year”?

2013 was the year that a deranged co-worker came to my office and murdered 13 people so I have to take a pass on this one.

1967. My fifth summer before starting first grade.

Another vote for 1999. The year I graduated college and my last semester was a blast. Getting a job was a bit of a scramble, but I was optimistic about everything in general. Then Bush's smirking face showed up.

Despite the lame duck status, Obama's second term was more than eventful from a domestic liberal viewpoint. And I admit to being lulled into complacency. All other variables equal, I believe Barack could have won a third term solely on the economy. Unfathomable that Obama would even suggest foregoing the 2 term rule. He loves the USA and the constitution more than he loves his political party.

I concur with the late 90s sentiment. After 9/11, things have been on a downhill slope overall, at least for the US. Even during Obama's presidency, we had to deal with the financial crisis, continuous international warfare, and the blatant racist reaction to a black man becoming POTUS.

If you were born after 1999 the world has just been one disaster after another.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
