Things have been pretty weird in the USA over the past few years. Are things returning to normalcy?
"disruptions" of the George Floyd protests
"violence" of Jan 6
Normalcy is long gone. And your optimistic tone is obnoxiously one-sided. For half the country, things have never been worse. Ask any normal family and they’ll tell you grocery prices are out of control. Gas prices are out of control. The moral fabric of society is unraveling. Marines are being left to rot in enemy territory while a America-hating anthem kneeler is brought home and celebrated. Everything is upside down. This is not the America of yore. And this pathetic administration, from our bumbling, virtue signaling excuse of a president to cross-dressing luggage stealers, are hellbent on destroying this country from within. Don’t be fooled. They LOATHE normalcy. However, the answer is not Trump or any of the nutjob election-denying politicians seeking office. The answer is a more moderate Washington where compromise is king. This country can’t handle either extreme — left or right. And if people, like the author of this article, can’t see that we have swung dangerously the other way (from what is perceived as “chaos”), then I have no hope for this nation. We’ll just keep swinging violently back and forth — left and right — until the foundation cracks…if it hasn’t already.
We are so far from healing the sentiment of this article is hilarious...is it satire? The federal government has metastasized to 25% of our economy from 15% a generation ago...that "10%" is where the fun went, where freedom went, its why the middle and working class are drifting further behind, its why everyone feels like they have to work harder to just keep their head above water...thats trillions a year that getting hoovered up by Washington rather than saved, invested, spent, enjoyed in the private sector...this is what stirs the emotions that led to Jan 6...they dont even know why they feel as they do,, they just know life is a grind and they dont remember it that way 30 years ago... but its only getting worse and now they are fooling around with kids, schools and the sex stuff...nowhere near healing, closer to revolution.
Normalcy? you got to be kidding me
This is a very strange comment section. I broadly agree that we are returning to something more normal than 2018-2021 and that normal in this case is better if not good.
I think many people saw the chaos/disruption as a chance for significant positive change (everything from abolishing police to overthrowing the "deep state").
For those reactionaries/revolutionaries and also many less radical people who feel that our "normal" is oppressive a return to normalcy can feel like a cell door slamming shut.
We ran out of food and you guys tried to eat us. Things will never be normal again, we will never forget.
“Protests” for George Floyd, but “violence” on Jan 6. Another far left journalist hack
Another propaganda piece trying to convince us that Biden is our savior and the Democrats aren't robbing us blind.
Massive sodomy, no jobs yeah just so normal if you mean worshiping satan and destroying the nation as normal. After School Satan and drag queens are the new normal.
Article written by a Liberal who dwells in the Left Coast swamp. Detached from the reality of what real Americans, who love this Country, and the Judaeo-Christian Faith. This is never a question of how things are now, but what are we going to do to preserve this Country for future generations? For those of us who lived the majority of our lives last Century, who worked, fought and knew the Greatest Generation all to well, America is not well, no matter what any media operative states. In the end, we will not do ourselves in. The likes of Chairman Xi, Putin, or Iran will take care of that.
Well what we saw was the violence on the left go unchecked and actually embraced by the left in summer of 2020 to the destruction of federal buildings and attacks on small business. Nothing from the federal government as far as any protection for us citizens from the violent left. Thats what i saw
Piss off bruh
I'm only getting started hating on the a$$holes who required masks/ 'vax' shots, the public school curriculums and the pervs/racists that teach it, the communists that run this country, and especially fucktards like you who want to erase everything from the last 6 years like it never happened.
Not a word about the national debt or the trade deficit or the falling labor participation rate which is a better measure than the unemployment rate.
Can't return to normalcy with the insane grooming and trans-ification of our babies by the liberal perverse. Also we have to stamp out racist hate groups like BLM and Antifa as well, then we will be on the road to "normalcy".
The “Chaos” you refer to on Trump was pure propaganda bullshit. There was no war in Europe. There were no Russia troops on border. There was no Afghanistan debacle. There were no missles flying out of N Korea. There was no Iranian saber rattling. China was on notice. So WTF are you describing as “becoming more normal”????
