Hart: My mid-year review of a crazy 2021

> 50-year swamp denizen Dr. Anthony Fauci has flip-flopped more times than a carp just banked on the lake shore. The CDC and the WHO did agree on something recently: The best thing you can do for your health and well-being is to not listen to the CDC and WHO.

> Biden finally took his mask off the other day and, as we all thought, it was Obama under there.

> Vice President Kamala Harris and her assistant, President Joe Biden, stayed on message last week. They like to focus on racial division all they can, with even more division as their goal. Biden visited Tulsa, Oklahoma, where there was racial violence in 1921. He brought his own special brand of racial sensitivity to the 100-year-old wound that he enjoyed reopening and then piously lecturing us about. He mentioned all the congressmen who were KKK members back then, but he didn't mention that they were all Democrats.

If Joe Biden heals racial wounds in Oklahoma, his next stop is the West Bank to handle Hamas and Israel, then on to settle the long-standing Roadrunner/Wile E. Coyote feud.

> Hamas and Israel are again shooting rockets at each other, so there is now a sense of normalcy with Biden in office. You only have small windows in time to get a deal done in the Middle East; it's like the return of the McRib or the swallows to Capistrano. The problem is that the Israelis want to negotiate under Judaic Law, Hamas under Islamic Law, and Biden's team under Murphy's Law.

> Between the much-talked about "vaccine passports" needed to travel and the unchecked power of the ever-expanding police state of the NSA, privacy is fleeting. I do not know what I will do if I have to come up with another password that I cannot remember. If the government continues to snoop on us and figures out my password, I am going to have to go back in time and rename my first pet.

> We live in a left-wing world where we are told to believe that Elizabeth Warren is Native American; Michelle Obama, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are oppressed; Greta Thunberg is a climate change expert; and George Floyd was a hero. Most troubling, we are still led to believe that Chicken McNuggets come from chickens.

> Prince Harry lambasted our First Amendment in his and his wife's ongoing attempt to be victims. His life coach just sent him down to the minors for rehab. Prince Harry said he cried about how he was treated for years, but neither his butler nor any of his 20 servants would listen.

> During the Biden, Jimmy Carter-like, gas lines of a couple of weeks ago, we all learned a valuable lesson about supply and demand. Fauci came in with some advice; he said if we did not drive for two weeks, we could flatten the demand curve and fix everything. One guy in my hometown who is my age knew how to siphon gas and did it a few times until he tried it on a Tesla and electrocuted himself.

> Thank goodness these celebrity award shows are on the ropes. With all the "woke" lectures, many Americans have stopped watching them. Ratings are dismal, and no one wants to be preached at by condescending celebs. I predict that next year the "In Memorial" section at the end of the Grammys will include the Grammys.

> For those who do not want to work, government is doling out checks, which is hurting the economy. It is hard on folks. Many of those poor Americans refusing to go back to work have to choose between a nice vacation, the new iPhone 12 or that really cool tattoo they've been wanting.
