Trump tried tariffs, he wants to try them some more, in order to help workers; what’s wrong with that? California wants to help workers by enforcing a new “fast food” wage law; what could go wrong?

Is President Biden’s massive student loan forgiveness really wise? Then looking at the K-12 world, teacher unions pushed hard to keep the schools closed as long as possible, but at what cost to students?

Then there’s homelessness: is there any way out f…
