To say that 2020 has been a crazy year is definitely an understatement.
From fires, impeachment, to coronavirus, to murder hornets, to riots, to more fires, this has been a year for the history books, and it's not even over yet.
I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we're all ready to get to living our normal lives once again.
People have been at home for way too long because of the coronavirus mess, but slowly businesses have started to reopen, people have started going out more, and as we've learned more about the virus, the death toll is continuing to decline even though daily cases have started to increase.
But the question that is on everyone's mind regarding the virus is when will it all be over?
According to the experts, it may come sooner than many are expecting.
In “A Dose of Optimism, as the Pandemic Rages On,” science and health reporter Donald G. McNeil Jr. argued the coronavirus death toll in the U.S., standing at around 250,000, is far below the initial 2.2 million Americans initially projected to die by mid-October.
“Since January, when I began covering the pandemic, I have been a consistently gloomy Cassandra, reporting on the catastrophe that experts saw coming: that the virus would go pandemic, that Americans were likely to die in large numbers, the national lockdown would last well beyond Easter and even past summer. No miracle cure was on the horizon; the record for developing a vaccine was four years,” McNeil wrote. “Events have moved faster than I thought possible. I have become cautiously optimistic. Experts are saying, with genuine confidence, that the pandemic in the United States will be over far sooner than they expected, possibly by the middle of next year.”
Citing a March 16 White House press briefing on the virus, McNeil recalled President Trump and the White House Coronavirus Task Force presenting their “15 Days to Slow the Spread” recommendations. They showed a chart from London’s Imperial College, which used a “sinuous blue line” to demonstrate what Dr. Deborah Birx called a “the blue mountain of deaths.”
So they say the middle of next year is when it will be over. I'm no doctor or scientist, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express once, and I think that within the first couple of months of 2021 we'll see this stuff wrap up for the most part.
My thoughts are that the virus will be mostly gone, but will probably never leave the country entirely. I think it will get to a point where not many people get it, but that they will get it. I don't anticipate that it will be like the flu that comes back every year, unless these bozo vaccine makers start causing mutations of the coronavirus.

Beijing Biden Gets Drowned Out By Trump Supporters During Speech
Why Joe Biden is still going out and holding events makes no sense to me whatsoever. There is literally no point in him holding these events.
At each event that he holds, there is almost nobody there, and when I say that I really do mean that there aren't many people there. Maybe there is a dozen or two dozen, but it doesn't really get bigger than that.
Notable Democrats Tired of Putting Up with Unreasonable Nancy Pelosi
One thing that we've seen over the past few years ever since the great divide within the Democratic party is the Democrats eating themselves...figuratively, of course.
They attack one another because they can't agree about anything. It's like they don't even try.
