My hopes for the New Year

An end to the pandemic fears, being able to see faces and smiles in public again.
Passage of the Big Back Better legislation as Biden proposed.
Bigger majorities in the House and Senate.
Mostly, I hope to never again see the faces of tfg or any of his relations unless in the context of criminal convictions.

My first encounter with a rabid anti-vaxxer

I was having lunch by myself, and a couple sat at a nearby table. He was in a state, seems he was just fired from his job because he wouldn't vaccinated. Loudly saying he was going to sue, the supreme court would soon rule that requiring vaccinations for Covid was unconstitutional and that his company could not get away with this. Had a lot to say about the stupidity of masks too.
I admit to living in a bubble of the fully vaccinated, and always wear a mask in public, (required in my county). He also claimed that the vaccinations are causing the variants.
This was my first encounter with one of these people, and it was ugly. I know there is a lot of this out there, and they continue to make life miserable for others, especially medical workers. I did consider calling him out, but decided that wouldn't end well, and left quickly.
Not sure what it's going to take to get this crisis handled, but damn, this guy was scary.
