Barstool Sports Is Helping Struggling Small Businesses Far More Effectively Than The Government.

Last week, Portnoy launched a fund to bail out small businesses and alerted his 1.8 million Twitter followers to the cause. It seems he is spending this money out of his own pockets, a heroic and commendable endeavor, and challenging others to join him in the cause.

Corporate Socialism: Intertwined Economic And Cultural Control By Government And Corporations.

Politics and economics become directly interfused. The state does not recognize the limits contemplated for it in capitalism, or in the Constitution for that matter.

That share roughly tripled this year to nine percent, in an Education Week survey. Gallup agrees, finding that 10 percent of children are now being homeschooled.

Why The People Despise Our Political Institutions: Exhibit 1, The Covid-19 Relief Bill.

Logrolling is essentially the trading of favors among legislators for mutual benefit. Bills often get passed by winning the support of lawmakers by including provisions that benefit their special interests, but which may not align with any public good. As a result, successful legislation tends to be chock full of special-interest spending.

Was the American Revolution A Culture War?

When it comes to culture, there is little room for compromise. It is increasingly apparent that the only peaceful solution lies in some form of radical decentralization, amounting to either secession or self-rule at the local level with only foreign policy as "national" policy.
