What is New York's government trying to hide?

What is New York's government trying to hide?

All it takes is a bit of common sense to understand that sending coronavirus patients into nursing homes is a bad idea. Unfortunately, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo realized this only after the rest of the country criticized his policy that forced nursing homes to accept COVID-19 patients from nearby hospitals. Cuomo reversed the policy last week, .The problem is that we can’t know for sure just how many nursing home residents died as a result of Cuomo’s policy because the New York government has been quietly omitting deaths from its recent reports on nursing homes and long-term care...

AOC now says basic economics is racist and dehumanizing

Given the conversation it has provoked, the fuss from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over President Trump's economic adviser Kevin Hassett's use of the phrase “human capital stock” might have to be upgraded to an all-out brouhaha. The socialist congresswoman melted down over Hassett’s language in a recent tweet:Human Capital Stock.An ugly term w ugly history, but for many powerful ppl it‘s their most honest view of workers: human stock.By their logic, the moment a person stops being useful to profit motive (retirement, health, etc) they are a liability. That’s the system we live in. —...

The European Union's Hong Kong crisis

The European Union's Hong Kong crisis

The European Union proclaims it is a global beacon for human rights, the rule of law, and the advancement of a broadly shared and prosperous peace. All noble ideals.Sadly, on Friday, the EU offered a sad reminder that its rhetoric is increasingly detached from reality. At least as applied to the greatest threat to those noble ideals, Xi Jinping and the Chinese Communist Party.After all, just as President Trump took very significant action to hold China accountable for its immolation this week of the Sino-British accord and Hong Kong freedom, the EU did, well, not a lot. Nothing more, that...

Twitter, now do Ayatollah Khamenei

In the wee hours of the morning, when President Trump dumped a truck worth of gasoline on the volatile situation in Minneapolis, Twitter took the extraordinary step of hiding the tweet with a disclaimer saying it violated rules against "glorifying violence."There shouldn't be much debate that in the midst of a riot in a major American city, it is beyond atrocious for Trump to tweet "when the looting starts, the shooting starts" in the context of talking about sending in the military. And, as a private entity, Twitter should be allowed to set whatever rules it wants for policing content,...
