Democrats haven’t fixed racism yet, but only because mean corporate greed prevents them from issuing enough bribes to make hatred disappear. The quite historical voting hobbyist group is eternally cranky because their slaves were freed. Compensating with grudge-based policies is not quite the helpful apology.

The poor party must pretend to celebrate Juneteenth while being upset about its Civil War loss. Revenge takes more subtle forms, as the political faction that originated the Klan is still using government to oppress those it deems unworthy. The 13th Amendment is one more part of the Constitution cravenly condescending racists loathe. …

You just need to find someone who thinks bias conforms with results to check a fact. Journalists verifying their semi-co-workers’ astoundingly dubious claims make their quasi-industry even more shameful. Citing people who always happen to agree with their oh so balanced worldviews is a nice touch. Naturally, they don’t realize they’re doing it.

Democratic press agents planted rather openly behind what they pretend to be enemy lines are renowned for never being biased, so we can trust them to issue truth with infallibility. If they’re pushing their own beliefs as indisputable actualities, that would mean their entire industry is a…

Doing nothing is easier. Give it a try for convenience, especially if your salary is funded by the unfathomable fortune you’ve taken from us. We’re paying for it and would prefer less action per hour, as politics are just like prostitution and also the exact opposite.

Sitting still beats what Joe Biden is doing. We get it: you’re a spry senior. Now try horseshoes instead of messing with the lives of those who often are much younger and are nearly universally more productive. Trusting humans to act rationally beats trusting this particular human to impose joy. …

The crazy people were always around. It’s just that now they have backing. Coddling lunacy is a popular trend for very advanced people who think mental illness is to be celebrated as an indicator of unique diversity. They’re right in a way.

Letting those with disturbing notions set the agenda is uncannily popular in an era of forestalling adulthood indefinitely. That characterization is unfair to children who possess enough sense to know everything won’t be free forever. Not paying for one’s own education is the surest way to become a grownup.

An entire political movement revolving around baffling notions requires…

The business party isn’t keen on competition. Republicans are dead set against a third option. Two is already confusing.It’s either a failure of imagination or imaginative fear of losing power that leads the side ostensibly against government to nominate hypocritically flaccid dolts who spend marginally less enthusiastically. Wendy’s disrupts the McDonald’s/Burger King ease of choice. Wait until they hear about Five Guys.

It’s unbelievable and understandable that a regrettable election competitor would try to copy the other one. Panicky insecurity creates a flimsy copy. The side truly obsessed with uncontrollable spending, needless trade wars, and presumed federal involvement in health…

You never know where you might end up while striving. Take Boyd Gatton, who went from Bermuda to New Jersey so he could reside in a different style of paradise. A big dream makes up for seeing 100 percent fewer palm trees.

Born in Paget, Bermuda, Boyd was a member of Saltus Grammar School’sclass of 1980. He moved to America in 1992 seeking new experience and adventure. Specifically, his career brought him to New York City. …

Your lunch only seemed to show up automatically. The person who made sure your hunger was addressed partway through the workday might be too busy in the kitchen to thank. But the toil occurred even if it went unseen. Brandon Powell was earning a living on the day he died yet was so much more than his job. Even without acknowledgment, he made life easier for others.

Brandon worked at Forte Food Service preparing meals for fellow World Trade Center employees on the North Tower’s 101st floor. …

Mary Lou Hague lived from October 7, 1974 to September 11, 2001. At 26 years old, it seems like she should have had many joyous decades ahead of her. But a barbaric attack wasn’t able to take away the tremendous moments she experienced and created in the time available. She’ll always have achieved so much even with the unfulfilled dream of her getting to do so much more.

Earning for others brought her to the top of the world. She worked as a financial analyst at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, an investment banking firm occupying the 85th, 88th, and 89thfloors…

John Reo was just getting started. A few months into a great job towering over Earth’s greatest city, he was about to live on the same famously bustling island where he worked. An exciting life featuring an impressive profession is a sign your 20s are going well. There was every reason to hope it would continue.

Nothing’s breathtaking like an office over a thousand feet in the sky. John worked in the paragon of skyscrapers as a bond trader at Cantor Fitzgerald, a job based on the 104thfloor of 1 World Trade Center. The opportunity was what one of his…

There was one Dutch September 11 victim, and she was one amazing person. Ingeborg Astrid Desiree Lariby was born in New York City but spent her life as a citizen of the Netherlands due to her parents possessing the same. Regardless of nationality, Ingeborg found comfort worldwide as a woman who defined urbane living. The effortless traveler moved across borders the way most people cross streets. Yet a person who lived in 12 countries on five continents didn’t feel at home until she was back in the City That Never Sleeps. …
