    The "new normal"

    Why is it that the term "new normal" is used, exclusively, for any downgrading of the usual state of affairs--but never for an enhancement of the current state?

    I have come to loathe this term, as it never appears to reflect any change for the better.

    The new normal will be no one will gather in large groups. No new militias, no organized anti totalitarian combat forces. No trust or communication with strangers. No trust of government. No trust of medical professionals and big pharma. No trust of the CDC or FDA.

    That is the term that most concerns me "the new normal" as if they get to define what normal is for the future. NO. HELL TO THE NO. I refuse to let any of these people define "normal" to me in any kind of terms.

    But I will push back. The new normal was set over 2,000 years ago when Jesus came, paid for our healing by His stripes, died taking our punishment & rose again where He is STILL alive in heaven giving us the gift of eternal life and stripping the powers of sin, death, sickness away from the devil & demons. THAT has been the new normal & THAT cannot change no matter how these evil people try.

    I stand on The Rock that is Jesus that cannot be moved by the machinations of the world.

    So no.....no matter how they spout that term.....that term is meaningless in their mouths.

    And they have no authority to redefine normal in my life or the life of my family & friends.

    No trust of Intel Agencies, national and international...since they operate as a single united entity, above law, with no fiscal restraints, untouchable by the governing elected officials and We The People as a whole.

    The Plan of progressives is a world of equally shared misery thus "the New Normal."
    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    The 'New Normal' I see comes in the form of our current culture....
    for instance:

    * The killing of newborns after the birthing process

    * Co-ed restrooms

    * Public restrooms labeled 'Male', 'Female' and '?' for those unsure of
    their sex

    * Rename Women to Wimin so as not to upset the anti male feminists

    * Identity politics as a way to smear the opposition..
    (always to smear Republicans)

    * Calling Republicans racists for opposing the massive influx of
    foreign illegals

    * Blaming the wealthy and capitalism for every single poverty ridden issue

    * Protecting criminal aliens with sanctuary cities while ragging on our I.C.E.
    agents

    * Setting up a Go-Fund-Me Page for any ridiculous reason because your'e
    an unproductive lazy ass.

    Hard times create strong men.
    Strong men create good times.
    Good times create weak men.
    And, weak men create hard times.
