Every child in the United States learns “America the Beautiful” and “This Land is Your Land” in grade school. The two songs are forever jockeying for position as our unofficial second national anthem. Though both are so ubiquitous as to seem nonpolitical, “This Land is Your Land” — originally a protest song by labor activist Woody Guthrie — is favored by those on the left. Its inclusion in the inauguration sends a message. Guthrieʼs guitar famously bore the label “This machine kills fascists.”

It is clear that many evangelical Trump supporters would rather have a white savior with an AR-15 than a brown-skinned Savior with a cross.

Hi everyone! Trump says the world respects us again. So, world, what say you?

I'm scheduled for a first dose of vaccine in two weeks. My wife and son have health concerns and my daughter is a dental hygienist so she sticks her face right up to people's unmasked mouths every day, but I'm going to beat them to vaccination because I work for the city. It's not a perfect system

"The Police’s Tepid Response To The Capitol Breach Wasn’t An Aberration

I have some reservations about deplatforming.  If I had a bar which became a gang headquarters and members plotted murders at my tables, how accountable am I to know what they're doing and stop them?  And if authorities could come in and see everything I see, must I do more than the authorities?  
Those are tough questions.  On the other hand, An easier question is: does my landlord have a right to kick me out because my business is a known headquarters for criminals?  To that I'd say 'Yes'.
