Even though the COVID-19 pandemic continues to rage on, nearly three-quarters of Americans (74 percent) now say their lives have returned to “normal,” according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll. It’s a number that underscores both the progress made possible by safe and effective vaccines and the challenges ahead as the holidays approach and yet another winter wave gets underway in the United States. The survey of 1,696 adults, which was conducted from Nov. 17 to 19, found that only 15 percent say that things “never stopped being normal” for them — a reminder of just how profoundly the virus


Unless you or a close family member is sick, it should be life-as-normal. The article goes on to warn about a return to nornal.

Normal begins when store clerks stop reminding customers to wear a mask, and children are not mandatorialy vaccinated for something that has only the remotest chance of affecting them.

We never let them turn our lives upside down. Initially, six weeks closed restaurants. Then open and we went back to two to three times a week eating out with friends. That has continued for about 18 months. We picked up some ivermectin and doxycycline and other drugs for early treatment recommended by a friendly, sane doctor, so far held in reserve. My sister is hiding under her bed, and that's where the family has gathered for Thanksgiving in recent years....she cancelled. Turkey day at our cabin in Colorado mountains this year, just watched a herd of elk graze by. We travel in the USA where we want to, when we want to, had to cancel a vacation in England and Scotland last year, couldn't reschedule this year, either, so to hell with those fools. Travel inside the USA, has some minor inconveniences like a lot of restaurants and fast food have no dine in or short hours, we insist on sit down dining, will NOT take out and eat in our laps. We call ahead, and work things out. Just thinking about an old sign my father had in the 1950s. "Illegitimi non carborundum"........faux Latin for "don't let the bastards grind you down". We take it to heart. Scroom. Can't fire me, I'm retired, can't make me get The Shot. Just drop dead, all you idiots.

What happened to the surge from all the unmasked football fans. Fauci, you fraud, you pushed a lot of people too far so you have discredited yourself. The damage you have caused the future generations is horrendous. Why this fixation on vaccines (the shot isn’t even a vaccine). You’re a certifiable quack.

I live in a state where it's pretty much normal. Recently traveled to PA where I saw people wearing masks into a coffee shop, take them off to eat, then dutifully put them back on to leave Just kind of jarring to me that people are still doing that because I don't see it where I live. Everyone I talked to was vaxxed but they have a problem with the mandated part. These include Trumpian patriots.

The vaccine is neither safe nor effective! More people are dying from the clot shot than the Wuhan flu. Also, vaccinated people are more likely to get infected than unvaccinated.

I've never worn a mask. Most people around here slowly stopped using them. Then Fauci said the flu was starting to come back and boom, saw lots of masked people again. I honestly think some people like wearing them. As for the shot, law suits are the way to go. No one can force someone else to take a shot that is not properly tested and obviously not working. I also think the sudden boom in flu cases are the hundreds of thousands who are here illegally and untested.

The fake pandemic of a fake virus did not affect anything what did and does is the compliance obedience and submission of the brainwashed to the greatest hoax in history planned for decades as a medical psyop is the easiest to sell Much easier than climate change which is what the virus fraud is seamlessly merging into And if the entire population is tied into the control grid of permanent genetic code injections resistance becomes impossible Its not a mystery they have published their intentions for many years And it proceeds exactly to plan Thanks brainwashed fearful submissives couldnt have 1984 2.0 without you

Around here Blacks wear masks everywhere, even in their cars driving alone. Why? Several stores have a sign "Masks required to shop here", I go in unmasked, no one says a word. Saw an acquaintance in WalMart, wearing a mask. She asked how I have been doing, Fine I say. She said "You're not wearing a mask, are you vaccinated?" No I say and I plan to stay that way. "And you're healthy?" Never better, I say. Some people drink the Kool-Aid.

Old and retired is the way we are. When this all started my wife did all the grocery shopping, I was cripple at home waiting for surgery which was backlogged by covid so I was immobile. The biggest inconvenience was shortage of goods in the grocery store. We stayed home, cooked outside and stayed on our patio. Simple life plus we didn't travel in the cars so gasoline prices weren't a problem while I feel bad for people like my children that have to work and travel. Let's just say we are continuing social distancing and will enjoy our quaint, quiet Thanksgiving like all our meals have been. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone stay strong and un-vaxxed, resist.

#8 Your comment is hyperbole, not factual. My husband and I are retired. We've had the vaccines (no side effects) but we are against mandates. We believe each person should have the freedom to do what is right for themselves. We are cautious but not fearful, going out for meals and continuing to do the things we've always done. Things had pretty much gone back to normal, but now our state has the highest rate of infections, so we have gone back to wearing masks on occasion. When it comes to COVID, we all just need to give each other the freedom and grace to follow our own hearts, without mockery or criticism.

I don't find this believable. Millions of people were forced to take the vaccine against their will or face losing their job. They will be facing that choice again with the booster. It will probably happen again many times in the future if the pharmaceuticals cannot get their act together. The fear mongering will continue. The shortages will continue because they are indirectly related to the kneejerk reactions our government is taking. it is probably indirectly connected to inflation as well since there are shortages. This is far from over.

Each one of us will have different experiences to any COVID confrontation as different as our fingerprints. Why expect ''cookie-cutter'' effects for something so personal? To my last breath, I will always believe it was meant as population control biological warfare. The known facts cannot dissuade that idea.

President Joe Biden had an audible slip-up when he read off more than he should have during a speech. The moment, reminiscent of fictional TV newsman Ron Burgundy reading everything he sees on the teleprompter in the Will Ferrell movie Anchorman, happened during remarks Tuesday about the rising gas prices at the White House while explaining the state of the economy . "Because of the actions we've taken, things have begun to change. End of quote," Biden said without pause. Biden did not appear to notice the minor gaffe, continuing to elaborate on people's concerns regarding inflation and gas prices.

Fox News senior political analyst Brit Hume thinks there’s a significant chance President Joe Biden doesn’t run for reelection, even suggesting he doesn’t finish his current four-year term. On Special Report Monday night, Bret Baier asked Hume about the White House confirming President Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024. “I don’t think it’s at all clear that he intends to run again, but I do think as a political matter, you have to say that,” Hume remarked. The instant he makes that announcement, Hume argued, Biden becomes a lame duck — “and lame duck presidents don’t do well.”

The trial of the three men accused of slaying Ahmaud Arbery has Black Americans walking on pins and needles once again. Whatever the jury decides, I’m afraid, will fail to address a damming question that the tragic incident symbolizes: How can Black people ever be secure in America? Executed by three strangers while jogging in a white neighborhood, Arbery’s killing reflects the mindset of domination in the culture of white supremacy: the belief that any random white person has the right to accost and detain a Black person with impunity. Authorities are ready to accept their claims of righteous endangerment–even

The remaining 18 million barrels are part of a sale that Congress has already authorized; the White House said it was accelerating the release of that sale.

Tucker Carlson scored the first interview with Kyle Rittenhouse and I highly recommend it. Before the trial, Rittenhouse was a human Rorschach test: We all saw what we wanted to see. Tucker’s interview revealed a real person: articulate, intelligent, principled, nuanced in his opinions, and even-tempered. (snip) The real young man is...well, real. First, he speaks fluently, without the “like” and “you know” fillers that most young people use. I thought that his smooth, intelligent speech on the witness stand was because he was well-rehearsed (which is what all lawyers should do to prepare their clients for their testimony). It seems, though, that Rittenhouse really just speaks well.

Donald Trump has all but formally announced his intentions to run for the presidency again in 2024, and his team is honing in on taking back five states Biden won in 2020 that he'd won in 2016. The former president's shadow campaign team polled Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, all of which were decided in favor of President Biden by 3 percentage points or less. The team found that in Georgia, Trump would be ahead by 3 points, 8 points in Arizona, 12 points in Michigan, 6 points in Pennsylvania and 10 points in Wisconsin, if the race were held today.Together, the states represent 73 electoral votes.

Iowa’s Medicaid system must cover gender confirmation surgery, a judge ruled Friday. Polk County District Court Judge William P. Kelly ruled that a state law that blocked Medicaid from covering gender confirmation procedures violated the Iowa Civil Rights Act and the Iowa Constitution—allowing trans Iowans to receive coverage for medically necessary surgery to treat gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is defined as a “marked incongruence between their experienced or expressed gender and the one they were assigned at birth.” It is a serious medical condition that often begins in childhood, even though some people may not experience it until after puberty or even later, according to the American Psychiatric Association.
