CrossTalk, Quarantine Edition: SCOTUS Follies

The confirmation process that will most likely see Amy Coney Barrett become the next Supreme Court Justice is in full swing. Democrats and their liberal media allies cast doubt over the proceedings.

CrossTalk, QUARANTINE EDITION: Permanent inequality?

It remains unclear who will be in the White House next January. What can be easily predicted is the state of the economy for tens of millions of citizens. It appears that what is called a K-shaped recovery is permanently dividing the country into the haves and have-nots. And this seems to be acceptable for those who are the haves!
