Self-Sacrificing vs Self-Serving

They wonder why people are quitting jobs and from what I hear, starting their own businesses. I heard about the Kentucky factory bosses keeping people on the job with tornadoes approaching. And this, the threat of being fired just before … Continue reading

Fake Noon Coming To My State

Booster

On my way to get a booster shot yesterday, I ran across a medical opinion piece from my friend Jeffrey Tucker’s libertarian confreres. It wasn’t at that link–the piece disappeared from my news feed. (Apparently, my internet corporate masters figured … Continue reading
