Americans Are Officially Freaking Out – Bloomberg

For those lying awake at night worried about health care, the economy, and an overall feeling of divide between you and your neighbors, there’s at least one source of comfort: Your neighbors might very well be lying awake, too.

When immigrants to America were white – Aljazeera.com

Happy Native American Heritage Month! In this “Make America Great Again” era, where white nationalists (and your nextdoor neighbours who claim not to be white nationalists) rail against undocumented immigration and yearn for the indeterminate days of yore, it’s easy to forget that the United States did not spring up, fully-formed, as a nation of […]

America Is Not a ‘Center-Right Nation’ – New York Times

The political scientist Philip Converse first brought the first reality to national attention in 1964.

At the cost of the sort of spare change that Donald Trump recently offered aides and former campaign officials for […]

Reasons to Believe in Ghosts in America – The New Yorker

About a year ago, I spent some days in Savannah, Georgia, and I bought a ticket for a ghost tour: my first. It was mid-evening, on a Saturday. The plan was to see haunted things around town and then hurry to a dinner reservation. I am not normally a spooky type of person—I avoid horror […]

Political correctness is ruining America, poll says – New York Post

An overwhelming majority of Americans feel political correctness has stilted important discourse the nation needs to have, a poll revealed on Tuesday. When asked if, “The political climate these days prevents me from saying things I believe because others might find them offensive,” 71 percent of respondents agreed, pollsters commissioned by the conservative Cato Institute […]

The attack on Tuesday in Lower Manhattan is one of a number of major terrorist attack on US soil that has been carried out by those who have claimed inspiration from Islamist terror groups like al-Qaida or Isis.

In Today’s Oil Market, It’s America Last – Bloomberg

Lately, this exceptionalism has been more noticeable than usual in the oil market: It isn’t just the outright price where a gap has opened up. The shape of the futures curves — how barrels for delivery down the road are being priced […]
