America’s Big Move on the Bloomberg Misery Index


America is moving up the ranks of the Bloomberg Misery Index, an index in which being number one means being the worst. Last year, America came in 50th. This year, America jumped to 25th among 60 economies compared based on their estimated price growth and joblessness, both of which are seen as big economic contributors to misery.

Freedom Rolls On in South Dakota


Across much of America, people are masked by mandate and large events are shut down by decree. But, in South Dakota, things are different. You can be mask-free in the state that has avoided most of the coronavirus crackdown imposed in much of the rest of America. And, if you ride a motorcycle, you can ride and congregate freely with hundreds of thousands of bikers. The annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally starts Friday.

Nicholas Reimann provides background information in a Thursday Forbes
article about this year’s Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in Sturgis, South Dakota, which, he writes, “will likely be one of the largest gatherings the world has seen in months.”

Border Checkpoints Further New York City’s Descent into Tyranny and Economic Hardship


People in New York City have been subjected to one of the most repressive coronavirus crackdowns in America. Included have been months-long forced closure of many businesses and extreme limitations placed on businesses that have been allowed to resume some operations during incremental scaling back of closure orders.

A Sunday report by Lauren Thomas at CNBC illustrates the continuing economic destruction by describing vacancies and bankruptcies, along with a large drop in rents sought, in 16 major retail corridors of the Manhattan borough of the city.

When a Mask Becomes Part of the Required Work Uniform


Wearing a mask at a store or other place where doing so is required of customers or visitors, or where there seems to be pressure either from the venue operators or the surrounding mask-wearers to do so, can be uncomfortable, even sickening. This can especially be the case for older and less healthy individuals for whom walking around while shopping can be a physical activity approaching or as strenuous as a younger, healthier person running a mile. The younger, healthier person can run a mile alright, but consider him trying to do so with his face and nose covered. He will surely run slower or be more exhausted in his masked mile run.

The New Viral Video of Doctors Talking About Coronavirus that Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter Have Removed


This week, video of a Washington, DC press conference of doctors was racking up millions of views. In the Monday press conference, several doctors of the group America’s Frontline Doctors challenged much of the party line that has been pushed for months by many people in media and government about coronavirus and how it should be dealt with medically and politically.

Say What? NPR Show Represents Libertarians as Supporting Wearing Masks and Imposing Mask Mandates


For months, much of the airtime at National Public Radio (NPR) has been devoted to interviews and stories that ramp up the coronavirus scare and advance all manner of draconian government action in the name of countering coronavirus. The effort can reach ludicrous extremes as it did on Sunday at the NPR show All Things Considered when show host Michel Martin interviewed Jessica Flanigan focused on this question: “Is there a basic libertarian view about public health measures like face masks?”

Beware Coronavirus Surveillance


“Concerns about curtailing contagion help to normalize detailed scrutiny of people's lives and drive us toward a pervasive surveillance state,” writes J.D. Tuccille in an informative and disturbing Friday article at Reason.
