BELLMAWR, New Jersey (PNN) - March 26, 2021 - A New Jersey gym owner who gained notoriety for resisting unlawful shutdowns during the nonexistent COVID-19 pandemic claims he will give away free gym memberships to those who choose not to get a vaccine for the virus.
The Atilis Gym Bellmawr owner Ian Smith tweeted Tuesday he would offer the deal after Krispy Kreme announced it was offering a free glazed doughnut for anyone who shows a vaccination card.
GALVESTON, Texas (PNN) - March 31, 2021 - Don’t just let it slip beneath your nose. Go maskless. Face the day. The shopping and other errands may not get done, but you’ll achieve even more with your time. Take yourself and others out of the comfort zone just a bit. You just might save Amerika.
Even as states loosen or lift their mask mandates, private companies are holding fast to them. This juke move is causing too many conservatives and libertarians on the Right to falter. Whereas in the former case, imposing masks on people was a violation of their rights, dignity, and the fundamental norms of civilization, the latter is seen as merely the exercise of property rights.
ATLANTA, Georgia (PNN) - March 29, 2021 - When COVID-19 first came to our shores it presented policymakers and elected officials with a crisis like nothing in living memory. In the year since, states have taken markedly different approaches to “pandemic” policy. Some, like New York, embraced sweeping unconstitutional government lockdowns and top-down mandates while others like Florida and South Dakota took a more humble, hands-off government approach, trusting individuals to make the best decisions for themselves.
The results are in - and they overwhelmingly vindicate the free states over the authoritarian experiments. First, we saw that states with the harshest restrictions didn’t necessarily achieve the best COVID-19 death outcomes. Florida has fared far better than New York and New Jersey, for example, and multiple studies have found no correlation between lockdown stringency and death rates.

March 31, 2021 - One of the reasons for the welfare state is the concept of redistribution of wealth. The argument is that in a free market, there are people who end up having more money than others. This is unfair, argue welfare-statists. Everyone should be equal in terms of the money and wealth they have. Thus, their argument goes, the government is needed to take money from the wealthy and give it to the poor, until everyone is equal in terms of income and wealth.
Coercive redistribution and equalization of wealth is a core principle, of course, of socialism. In the pure socialist ideal, the state takes everything from everyone and then doles out money to everyone in equal shares.
WASHINGTON (PNN) - March 29, 2021 – “Un-Amerikan.” “Sick.” “Despicable.”
What got Joe Biden in such a lather? Was it the children packed liked sardines at border detention facilities? The recent mass shootings? China’s human rights abuses?
Nope. Biden flew off the handle over the fact that several states are taking steps to reform their election laws in ways he doesn’t like.
LAS VEGAS, Nevada (PNN) - March 31, 2021 - Las Vegas is no stranger to exclusive VIP lists, but there’s a new way of limiting guest access coming to town: vaccine passports.
These digital credential systems can show whether someone has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and can help businesses limit access to those who have been inoculated. The systems were designed to increase health and safety at various venues, but experts warn of pushback over concerns on privacy and personal choice.
“What we’re seeing throughout the (nonexistent) pandemic is people guarding their personal rights, and I think a lot of people will find that intrusive in their day to day,” said Jonathan Day, an associate professor of hospitality and tourism management at Purdue University.
