Well, it’s high time we started moving those pesky goalposts again. Spring is in the air and people are chomping at the bit to lose the mask, get together and have some fun. It’s been a long and lonely winter for most.
But anyone with any sense could see early on that the power and control the left has gained in the past year would not be relinquished willingly. Like monarchs, the political left seems to believe it is their birthright to rule over us. And they’re hell-bent on doing so, by any means. And the magic bullet, as it were, is the dreaded pandemic.
Yet it also seems they have almost run out ways to further move the goalposts. So it appears they’ve instead decided it is about time to prepare us for match point, or checkmate.
And with that, you can kiss the “old normal” goodbye.

Bloomberg article warns it’s time to ‘start planning for a permanent pandemic’
If you’re to believe a Thursday Bloomberg report, it’s high time to start planning for a “permanent pandemic.”
What are the details?
Bloomberg reporter Andreas Kluth suggested that Americans get ready for full-time pandemic preparation.
“For the past year, an assumption — sometimes explicit, often tacit — has informed almost all our thinking about the pandemic: At some point, it will be over, and then we’ll go ‘back to normal,'” Kluth wrote. “This premise is almost certainly wrong.”
There is no getting back to “normal,” according to Kluth, who said that Americans ought to prepare themselves to fight COVID-19 — a “permanent enemy,” like influenza, “but worse.”
“In the case of SARS-CoV-2 … recent developments suggest that we may never achieve herd immunity,” Kluth continued, shooting down the idea of herd immunity. “Even in the U.S., which leads most other countries in vaccinations and already had large outbreaks, won’t get there.”
Not even vaccines were safe from Kluth’s critical eye.
