LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): Too many of us, though, have lost our ability or, maybe, the will to think for ourselves during this time. Sometimes we've abandoned common sense and instead we adhere to the edicts of an expert class that is neither expert nor classy. Their rules and advice keep changing. It was 15 days to slow the spread, now it's closer to maybe 15 months. Last summer Dr. Redfield said masks were as good as vaccines, and if we wore masks for about two months, it would basically be over. Instead, cases spiked. And just for old times' sake, let's remember the wise words of Dr. Fauci one year ago today. 


Of course, he later did a 180. It's all for noble reasons, right? He went from no masks, to you must wear a mask, to you must wear two masks. It's time for us to break free of the cycle of failed experts and frankly unconstitutional orders. If you are trapped in a blue state that won't open up, that denies the data and the science, that bows to the teachers unions, it's time to get -- get up and either leave altogether, or get involved in politics, on the local level, on the state level, in any way you can. A year later, it's time to retire or just ignore the control freaks. It's time to declare victory and move on.
