I never thought I would see the day when we would be encouraged to wear masks into the bank and yet, here we are. It's an astounding time we live in truly. We have little arrows now in stores designating "one-way" aisles, and people "on duty" screaming "6 FEET APART, 6 FEET APART PLEASE".
We now spend days dodging a smart virus that knows if you're eating in a diner but cannot find you in Walmart.
They made a vaccine to curtail this virus. Many people don't want the vaccine. Some are afraid of what is in the vaccine and the stories are fascinating. It varies from the vaccine will just make you sick. Others claim they will put a nanochip inside of you so they can make your head explode whenever they want to.
We let criminals out of jail now IF they could get sick, but we put people in jail IF they open their business.
We pay for politicians to be protected by armed guards so they can tell the rest of us that we don't need guns. Ironically it's these politicians who are letting the criminals out of jail to "protect them".
The police officers are now the new bad guys and we have politicians pushing to defund them. This was tried on the Dodge City of old, no law enforcement, and it didn't end well.
Try calling a criminal next time you need help. See how that works out for you.
We have tyrant shady politicians who supported riots, violence, and mayhem. For 4 years they did everything to overturn this country and regain power and prosperity for themselves and cheat the American people. Those same politicians now have the nerve to call for "unity and togetherness".
I could go on all day but you get the idea.
When you add all this up and consider the changing ways 2020 ushered in one can only attribute this to the "new math" that never made much sense in the first place. It was an effort to "reinvent" the wheel that was working just fine and didn't re-inventing.
My hope is that 2021 will be better.
Everyone, try to have a Merry Christmas and a safe holiday, and remember, sometimes.....just laugh.
