Billionaire Bill Gates claims the world should be back to normal by the END of 2022. The report took place during an interview for Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza and television broadcaster TVN24, according to a Reuters news release.
“This is an incredible tragedy,” the Microsoft co-founder said on the pandemic, adding that the only good news was the access to vaccines. “By the end of 2022 we should be basically completely back to normal,” Gates said.
The former chairman of Microsoft and co-founder of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has committed at least $1.75 billion toward the COVID-19 pandemic. The commitment includes support for some of the vaccine makers.
But many Americans find the billionaire’s seeming conflict of interest as downright creepy. The guy funding vaccines is proclaiming when the pandemic will end? Gates funds vaccines and then promotes their widespread use?
The odd combination strikes many like a suspicious Microsoft Windows update. Yes, there are conspiracy theories that have strangely alleged Gates created COVID-19 to control humanity through vaccines. The social media hype has spread far and wide. But underlying the fringe views is a layer of more serious concern related to the pandemic.
People are happy for those helping to end the pandemic, and rightfully so. But Gates has seemed to build a certain level of fame for speaking out about the COVID-19 virus, leading people to question why.
The official answer includes his promotion of his foundation and helping with vaccine distribution. Yet Americans don’t like being told when we’ll be back to normal.
President Joe Biden recently polarized many Americans even more when he announced in a COVID-19 update that if we all behave, we could have a small backyard celebration by July 4th. But many Americans have been doing this already, including last Independence Day.
Speaking of Independence Day, aren’t we a nation built on freedom? We don’t need a CEO or president telling us when we can reopen the economy, do we? Americans are get it done, get out of my way people. We need government out of our business, not in our face.
America will be back to normal when conservatives regain control of Congress and the White House. Then we’ll roll back restrictions, secure the border and stop the nonsense climate justice talk.
But late 2022? We’ll have the midterm election by then. Oh, wait. Maybe that’s exactly when America will begin to return to normal. If Republicans win the House and maybe even the Senate, radical Democrats will no longer be able ram through ridiculous legislation to spend 90 percent of a stimulus bill on non-stimulus activities. We might stop about banning assault rifles and defunding police and actually get something done.
At the very least, conservatives back in charge of Congress could slow the flood of poisonous bills flowing through the House to make illegal immigrants citizens and give them housing while making the National Guard sleep in a cold parking garage. We could even take down the fence from around the U.S. Capitol and add it to some of the rest of the Trump border wall.
And if all goes well, maybe Trump himself will come back for another shot in 2024. If he does, we may not be back to normal, but we’ll get back to making America great again.
