American Consequences - November 2020


I started receiving your emails about one year ago. They are informative, insightful, and most importantly discuss perspectives one can’t find in manymedia outlets. Keep up the great work! We need to hear the truth and not the psychotic rants of the left. – Rob B. P.J. O’Rourke Response: Thanks, Rob. Seems like a lot of media outlets have gone off their meds. We do our best to stay on a maintenance dose. Although there are occasional side effects. (See Gary S. below.) Re: It Doesn’t MatterWho Wins “It Doesn’t MatterWhoWins”??
