Well, 2021 gave itself the equivalent of a bad haircut as it started out with the uprising that happened at the Capitol on January 6th. It can only go up from there...hopefully! We'll see what the rest of the year has in store.
The "uprising" was crazy! I have many thoughts about it that I'm not going to write much about on here except to say that I think there was a lot more to it than meets the eye.
The Wall Street Journal has been tough on Trump in the wake of what happened on 1/6 (they were pretty tough on him before that too, but not nearly as bad as the majority of other media outlets). I personally don't agree with everything they and their writers think about this.
Here's a WSJ writer who defended Trump. I agree with him!
"Time will vindicate Donald Trump"
"Law enforcement oddly opened the doors to the building, allowing protesters to 'storm' the Capitol."
I'll just say it; I think it's very possible that this was mostly a pre-planned hoax by Deep State liberals and globalists who are trying to undermine the U.S., and a small percentage of Trump supporters fed right into it and took the blame.
One week later...here we go again!
Sadly, COVID-19 was raging in the country and in the world in January, which wasn't too surprising after the holidays. Fortunately by the end of the month it was getting better.
Yesterday, about a month after this article was published, the U.S. reached the half-million mark.
I feel vindicated! I knew the flu-vaccine mandate in MA was ridiculous. I'm so glad we didn't get needless and possibly harmful flu shots.
"Classic flu" was wiped out; Covid is the new flu that took its place.
"Why are we so afraid of this virus if the chances of survival are so high?"
By the end of January, rates of infection were definitely improving.
Other Signs of the Crazy Times
Why would the government get rid of the 1776 Report!?! Why, indeed. I really am afraid and sad for America's future. And as a mother, I'm upset by the potential dystopian, totalitarian future my children are facing in this once-great country.
