The economy is poised for a roaring comeback, except…

The Wall Street Journal tells us that many people in America are still "reluctant to travel", so leaving the leisure and hospitality areas of society still in bad shape.  And why, pray tell, might so many people still be reluctant to leave the safety of their living-rooms?  Maybe because all day, every day, the Press …

Hong Kong is fading away as a bastion of liberty

Before 1997, Hong Kong was a British protectorate, on the border of Communist China.  In 1899, Britain was granted a 99-year lease on the colony, and it became a thriving financial center, among other things.  The population density of Hong Kong is remarkable, with numerous high-rise apartment buildings, and nearly 6700 people per square kilometer! …

Some predictions regarding the Biden presidency

Almost since the beginning of his "campaign" in 2020, Joe Biden has shown signs of cognitive decline.  The so-called campaign of 2020 was a joke, as the candidate was rarely seen outside his basement in Delaware; made few in-person campaign stops; and when he did emerge for a campaign function, few people attended, and the …

This year marks 20 years since the terrorist attacks on September Eleventh. It is a day that looms grimly for those who witnessed with their own eyes the destruction, horror, and chaos of that day.
