A Peaceful New Year’s Eve 2017 with Lil Jon and Hawaii Senator Brian Schatz

Written By | Dec 31, 2017

LOS ANGELES, December 31, 2017 — For just one night, most of the seven billion people in this world put aside religion, politics, and even sports. The closest thing to peace on earth temporarily breaks out. We say farewell to a tough year and pray that the incoming new year will be better, perhaps even peaceful.

We pray for peace, love, and a better world.

On January 15, America will honor the late Martin Luther King Jr. We will vow to honor his legacy of peaceful non-violent civic activism. Five days later, Donald J. Trump celebrates one year as President of the United States. Supporters of Obama and Hillary Clinton will, America hopes, resist the urge to resist everything for the sake of resistance.

Yet the hours leading into January 1 are not about the Republican Party or the Democrat Party.


Celebrating with New Years Traditions past and present

It is about house parties, club parties, rooftop parties, and party for the sake of partying parties.

This is before getting to the after-party.




We eat and drink to excess, dance badly, and upload pictures to social media that should never be uploaded.

For one night, much of the entire civilized world is a happy, peaceful, global family united in sheer joy and revelry.

In Gotham City, 2018 commences, and peaceful behavior erodes

All hell breaks loose with the dropping of the ball in Times Square. But its more about getting out of the freezing weather they have been standing in for the last six hours.

And in all the global celebrations welcoming the end of 2017, nothing says New Year’s Eve like the convergence of a rap star and an unknown politico.

The rapper is long-haired, gold-toothed entrepreneur and former Trump Celebrity Apprentice semi-finalist Lil Jon. Dave Chapelle lampooned him as the guy who only says “what” and “ok.”

Lil Jon brought the world one of the greatest party songs, “Shots.”

A celebration of alcohol and fun, plenty of shots will be consumed as 2017 ticks down.

While Lil Jon’s celebrity is established, the senior United States Senator from Hawaii is still fairly early in his political career. With the passing of Senator Daniel Inouye, former Governor Hawaii Neil Abercrombie sent his second in command to Washington in 2012 as the next Senator from Hawaii.

Former Lieutenant Governor Brian Schatz then won the 2014 election to his first full Senate term.

The Senator’s name is spelled “Schatz,” although his last name is pronounced “shots.”

The U.S. Senate has long been about partying, alcohol, and law-breaking in between occasional bouts of governing.



Therefore, the upper chamber of Congress should treat Schatz as a celebrity.

Let Lil Jon do the swearing-in ceremony as the Republican Party and the Democrat Party continue to spend like drunken sailors at a never-ending New Year’s Eve Party.

Happy New Year Schatzie! Party time!

“When I arrive on the Hill, all eyes on me.

In the Democrat Party, all drinks are free.

We’re drunken spenders, we’re so far gone.
It’s free money time, so come on down!

Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, everybody!

Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, everybody!

The ladies love us, when we give free stuff,

From contraception to other needless fluff,

We’re drunk on power, how ‘bout you?
Bottoms up, let’s go round two

Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, everybody!

Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz Schatz,
Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, everybody!

If you ain’t drunk on power, get out of Congress now!

If you ain’t drunk on power, get out of the White House now!

If you ain’t drunk on power, get out of government now!

Now where are my spendaholics? Printing presses go!

Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz, Schatz,
Schatz, everybody!”

Party hearty, Senator Schatz! Greece, California, and Detroit are only a few trillion wasted dollars away!

To everyone else, may 2018 be a year of peace, love, and most importantly for revelers, fun!

Let’s party! What??????

Happy 2018! Ok!!!!!!!!
