The business owners whose blood, sweat, and tears—or at least their fancy, high-priced educations, family connections and access to venture capital—built this country, dammit were hellbent and determined to show American workers who was boss. This COVID-19 nonsense was not going to interfere with their profits any longer. It was time to take a stand.
So they all had their administrative assistants conference in their favorite state legislators, the same ones who helpfully passed legislation a few years back, keeping pesky unions out of their states.

Good morning, it’s Friday, Oct. 22, 2021, the day of the week when I reprise quotations intended to be uplifting or educational. Today’s lines come from two famed 19th century American authors, and on the same subject — grand opera.
The news peg for this morning’s missive is that New York City’s Metropolitan Opera House opened its doors for the first time on this date in 1883. The Met, as the opera company quickly became known (and is known still), was then located at 1423 Broadway, between 39th and 40th streets.

Early this summer, Senate Democrats tried to advance H.R. 1, a sweeping bill designed to launch a partisan federal takeover of America’s elections. They failed to win over even every Democrat in Congress. Now, they are offering a bill they’ve dubbed the Freedom to Vote Act, though a more honest name would be the Freedom to Cheat Act. Democrats say it’s new, but it’s really just a fresh face for the same federal takeover.    
Progressives are working overtime to brand the Freedom to Vote Act as a bipartisan “compromise.
