For the love of God, quit it with the endless bailouts already

I was talking to a family member last night who lives across the street from a high school campus in suburban Denver. He used to go running on the track at the facility in the mornings. "They have brought in tractors and have completely torn out the grass on all the athletic fields to re-sod … Continue reading For the love of God, quit it with the endless bailouts already

Awarding “personhood” to corporations is an ancient concept

I live in the Managerial Age, in a world of "Admin." The greatest evil is not now done in those sordid "dens of crime" that Dickens loved to paint. It is not done even in concentration camps and labour camps. In those we see its final result. But it is conceived and ordered (moved, seconded, … Continue reading Awarding “personhood” to corporations is an ancient concept

Wealthy New Yorkers discover the homeschooling co-op

And as I … Continue reading Jobless claims mapped and adjusted for population
