American Consequences - March 2021


to be your eyes and ears (and nose – when things stink). We try to keep it real. But we confess, the way things are going these days, we sometimes wish we could make it “just pretend.” Trish Regan Response: So glad you’re following us. We will make sure you hear all the news that matters. Your news stories are a great alternative to the biased stories we are fed daily from mainstream media sources. I have found information that is very useful for investment decision-making. – Steve S. P.J. O’Rourke Response: Steve, it makes use proud to be of use! But, as to bias in the media, it’s important to remember that all reporting contains bias of some kind. The besetting sin of traditional media is their refusal to admit (even to themselves) the bias they have. We’re biased too. But we come clean about it.

Re: Love us? Hate us? Let us know howwe’re doing! Love your publication! I enjoy and learn from you! – Charles C. P.J. O’Rourke Response: Enjoy and learn! Those two words just don’t go together often enough. (I’m recalling my high school algebra class. Although, come to think of it, I not only didn’t enjoy myself, I didn’t learn much algebra either.) Anyway, Charles, we take that as the highest praise. Love reading the articles every morning, keep them coming!! – Craig M. P.J. O’Rourke Response: Thank you, Craig. We shall. But let me suggest that some of our articles (mine) might better be read in the evening, after a couple of drinks. Trish Regan Response: We will, Craig. Keep reading and we will keep writing. Thank you! And don’t forget our podcast! It has some of the best interviews you will hear in the investing, political, and economic world. I would just like to thank you personally for the feeds I have been following and now the subscription. Pretty sheltered here and I don’t even watch the news on TV anymore so you have helped me understand some of the issues and make me aware of others. Doing a great job and you keep it real. –Michael S. P.J. O’Rourke Response: Michael, we’re flattered

You need a bigger megaphone! – Hilton D.

P.J. O’Rourke Response: We couldn’t agree more, Hilton. And we’re doing our best to improve our means of communication. We
