Saturday, January 2, 2021


We couldn’t wait for 2020 to be over, the year that brought devastating wildfires, a contested presidential election, and, of course, the Coronavirus pandemic. 2020 was a difficult year, but there are things we should be thankful for: 

  • Wins for the GOP in November- The Republican party narrowed the gap in the House, picking up at least nine seats, and likely will hold onto their majority in the Senate. 
  • GOP Women– Speaking of wins, the GOP broke numerous records for women this November: from now holding the most seats in Congress by Republican women, to electing to Congress the first Korean-American woman, Iranian-American, and the first woman to represent Wyoming in the Senate (to name just a few).
  • ACB– A staunch originalist and former clerk of the late Justice Scalia, Justice Amy Coney Barrett was nominated by President Trump and confirmed to the Supreme Court this fall. The court now holds a 6-3 conservative majority.
  • Folklore/Evermore– The Swifties reading this should be very happy because Taylor Swift released two full albums.
  • President Trump’s Tweets– As always, President Trump’s Twitter provided many laughs to us throughout 2020. 
  • Middle East Peace Deals– President Trump helped facilitate multiple peace deals between Israel and Middle Eastern Countries this past yearwhich will hopefully bring further stability to the region.
  • The Day Twitter shut down and we all had a few hours break from the blue checks (Sorry Kassy!).
  • The treatments and vaccines that have been rapidly created to help end the Coronavirus pandemic.
  • Medical professionals, Front-Line workers, and Law Enforcement– They have risked their lives throughout the pandemic and riots to save lives and protect the American people.
  • Military- The men and women who sacrifice so much to keep us safe at home and abroad.
  • The United State of America– Although many of us are disappointed by the Presidential election results, we still live in the freest, most prosperous nation in the world.
  • The Constitution- Which protects our basic rights and freedoms from tyranny.
    1. Those who continuously defend the Constitution.
  • SpaceX sent the first manned space flight from U.S. soil since 2011.
  • Technology– It has given us the ability during this isolating time to communicate and see our loved ones, work and learn, and even attend online concerts.
  • Nancy Pelosi’s infamous Good Morning, Sunday Morning gaffe
  •  President Trump’s accomplishments this past year– From signing an executive order to protect infants, to facilitating the process for a Covid vaccine to be made in record time, to helping the economy bounce back, President Trump had many achievements for the American People this past year.
  • Chuck Grassley’s Pidgin tweets
  • Our Loved Ones
  • That We’re Finally in 2021– It feels like we jumped a hurdle already! From 2020, to 2021, our prospects are already looking brighter with a new clean slate and a chance to return to normal.

 

 I hope you all have a healthy, safe, and happy 2021. Happy New Year!
