In 2022, let the free market and elected legislatures take the lead in addressing the pandemic

Another Merry Coronavirus Christmas

According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, we’re only “halfway through World War II” in our fight against the virus as the World Health Organization urges people to cancel Christmas again and President Biden responds by rolling out a lot of additional testing while berating the unvaccinated.  In the meantime, life goes on as it always does…… Continue reading Another Merry Coronavirus Christmas

Build Back Better bites the dust, for now at least

President Biden’s signature progressive legislation fails to attract the 50 votes required for passage in the Senate after months of negotiations.  Progressives are furious, but they should’ve seen this coming all along when the bill was built on gimmicks and cheap accounting tricks with no central message or purpose.  Incredibly, it seems they are only… Continue reading Build Back Better bites the dust, for now at least

It’s official: Some progressives don’t think we should actually work for a living, fortunately they’re counterbalanced by others who still believe in the dignity of a day’s pay

Vox calls for a “break” from capitalism to focus on mental health issues along with a complete restructuring of work in general, presuming we’d all be better off sitting at home complaining about our plight.  Fortunately, a progressive philosopher still recognizes the dignity of work and believes it could be the answer to Democrat struggles… Continue reading It’s official: Some progressives don’t think we should actually work for a living, fortunately they’re counterbalanced by others who still believe in the dignity of a day’s pay

Democrats, the mainstream media, and even some Republicans remain obsessed with the January 6 riots, even as their fevered fantasies of a coordinated, armed insurrection have been revealed as completely false.  They’re now resorting to doctoring text messages and lying about it to keep the story alive, desperate to go after Trump one more time… Continue reading Yes, conservatives almost universally condemned the January 6th riots, despite lies to the contrary

Elon Musk: Time’s Person of the Year has become a relentless advocate for freedom, placing himself in the middle of our raging culture wars

It’s an irony of our times that a former South African, a creature of deep-blue, progressive Silicon Valley, and now the richest man in the world should become a divisive, cultural touchstone for the enduring importance of freedom.  Fighting lockdowns and vaccine mandates, Mr. Musk has earned the respect of conservatives and the ire of… Continue reading Elon Musk: Time’s Person of the Year has become a relentless advocate for freedom, placing himself in the middle of our raging culture wars

Electric cars, inflation, and abortion rights: The everything is racist saga continues, as some say a Civil War is coming
