How the American States divide themselves

By Victor Adams

If you walk out the front door, you know that something is wrong. There are no more beer summits. Every opposing thought is a threat to democracy. Americans no longer agree to disagree.

An affordable health-care option

What does an average-at-best writer write about when they can’t write? That’s obvious. They write about the reason they can’t write. That means you get to learn about back surgery South of the border.

It’s December 2020. I’m a third of the way through the second…

Freedom Packages; starting as low as $45/month

It isn’t possible that a government would package freedoms and rent them back to its citizens for a monthly fee. Obviously, that is the stuff of satire. Impossible. Ludicrous. Mel Brooks caliber stuff. But, say, if they did…just hypothetically, it might look a bit like this.
