Don’t leave Facebook, Twitter to the left

Buckminster Fuller, the eccentric architect, inventor and author, once opined, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change things, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” But Fuller, who died in 1983 at the age of 87, didn’t live long enough to see the advent of social media.

If only Trump were a ‘progressive’

It seems to me that in addition to the accomplishments for which President Trump has received credit (despite the screaming from the “progressives” and their lap dogs in the mainstream media), two huge achievements have been overlooked or buried. First, it appears that President Trump invented a new way to wage war without any American bloodshed: economic pressure that overwhelms an adversary (see Iran). Second, Mr. Trump’s policies have saved our hospitals and their associates through economic aid. After all, have you heard of any hospital going bankrupt because it was required to treat COVID-19 cases to the exclusion of revenue-producing elective surgeries?

Tyrannical governors are giving the Tenth Amendment a bad name

- The Washington Times

The Tenth Amendment states that "powers not delegated ... nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people." That's supposed to be a comfort for citizens, to keep the big boot of federal government at bay. Tyrannical governors are using the 10th to their tyrannical advantage, though.
