Thomas Knapp: “With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations,” Hunter S. Thompson wrote in 1973, “there is no such thing as Objective Journalism.

Should You Even Vote? Not Necessarily.

Thomas Knapp: As I write this, we’re 47 days away from the November 8 general election — voters will elect candidates to all 435 US House seats, 35 US Senate seats, and other offices that vary from state to state.

Pentagon’s Information Warfare Review Should Cover the Domestic Side, Too

Thomas Knapp: The US Department of Defense has ordered “a sweeping audit of how it conducts clandestine information warfare,” the Washington Post reports.

Ron DeSantis’s Costly Political Stunts Turn Florida’s Taxpayers Into Involuntary Presidential Campaign Contributors

Thomas Knapp: As of July, CBS News reports, Florida’s unemployment rate stood at 2.7% versus 3.5% nationwide. Most economists consider an unemployment rate of 5% or less to constitute “full employment”:  People without jobs in such a scenario are either in the process of changing jobs, or just not looking for work. The problem in Florida right … Continue reading Ron DeSantis’s Costly Political Stunts Turn Florida’s Taxpayers Into Involuntary Presidential Campaign Contributors → - by Thomas L. Knapp
