1954 was a pivotal year in the history of the United States.  Since 1933, a coalition of representatives from Northern cities and rural Southern states had worked to improve the lives of average Americans.

How do we”known” Covid 19 is deadly? How do we “know” a virus running wild through the population would cripple hospitals and schools? Because it is happening.

One of the daily rituals was watching game shows including “Let’s Make a Deal.” We got a chuckle when someone picked a Zonk, one of the meaningless prizes.

Pope Francis has a fully developed pro-life message to the world’s secular leaders. It is a message about improving and securing all our lives,liberty and happiness but especially the world’s poor.

Fact and Theory

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Adding more pain in a depressed economy is still a failure. Reducing the pain makes things better. “”The labour market is an example of the divergent performance between the two regions,” wrote Deutsche Bank’s economists in their new House View report. “Unemployment stood at roughly the same level in mid-2009. Since then, US unemployment has […]
