alfred_e-_neumannOur news collection sits below.

The culture: A California mom faces jail for selling homemade ceviche via Facebook. (Government job creation)

“The Death of Polling” (Article) (Political polling, anyway …)

Newsweek magazine was forced to recall its presidential election edition – it displayed Hillary Clinton on its cover. (Oops …)

The culture: Young black men viciously beat a white man: He voted for Trump. The Left’s “Ren-A-Mobs” react to Trump’s win with street violence. (Entitlement in action) A California high school girl was beaten for a tweet supporting Trump.

Trump to spend more than Obama? (Some bond marketinvestors seem to expect that.)
