Should the U.S. Be More Like Europe?
The correct question is, should Europe be more like the US. The answer is, yes. Wealthier societies drive more; we should want our people to be wealthy ...
James Alan Fox: There Is No Evidence of an 'Epidemic of Mass Shootings'
"The horrific mass killings in El Paso and Dayton have understandably inspired terror in America and calls for expanded gun control, predictive policing, and mental health interventions designed to reduce violence.
But Northeastern University criminologist James Alan Fox, the leading researcher on the topic for the past 35 years, tells Reason, "There is no evidence that we are in the midst of an epidemic of mass shootings." The number of incidents and casualties are simply too small to make such claims and, he stresses, the media coverage of shootings often ends up creating a false sense that gun violence—which is at or near historic lows—is ubiquitous and growing."

Hell on Earth where you are the serf and they the masters.
Portland is a fascist sewer, its mayor is in bed with the fascists, and its police incompetent or shackled by Portland's fascist politicians.

Ocasio-Cortez Claims Electoral College a Racist Scam to Benefit Middle America
"The new face of the Democrat party went on to trash the Electoral College, enshrined in the Constitution by our founding fathers, as a “scam” filled with "racial injustice."
"To all the Republicans getting big mad [because] the electoral college is, in fact, a scam," she wrote as she shared an article meant to explain why the system is unjust.
"The Electoral College has a racial injustice breakdown," Ocasio-Cortez concluded. "Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the electoral college effectively weighs white voters over voters of color …"
There’s no nice way to put this: She’s not just wrong, she’s stupid.
The Electoral College is a system that prevents areas with massive populations – such as the liberal cesspools of New York and California – from exclusively deciding who leads the rest of the country. It gives voice to sparsely populated areas in middle America and levels out those from densely populated coastal elite locales.
New York is a microcosm of this – Governor Andrew Cuomo wins election every cycle because he captures areas such as Long Island, New York City, and areas in Buffalo, while the majority of the state overwhelmingly rejects him.
These areas control what happens in the entire state, much to the detriment of upstate New York."
Furious Trump Unloads On Fed: Asks "Who Is Our Bigger Enemy: Powell Or Xi"
We need to rid ourselves of the flapdoodle Fed, the original gang that couldn't shoot straight. We've been saddled with this monstrosity which has done nothing but driven inflation for more than a century. We do not need inflation and would be much better off without it. But the Fed knows better, and so we the average Americans suffer so the wealthy, the connected, the government, big finance, and big business can wring more money out of our thin wallets.
Mr. President fix this problem.
