    The alternative to "at will employment" is slavery. I can't say I'm surprised to see liberals and leftists celebrating corporate coercion.

    Re: Coronavirus outbreak - From China to the World.

    An inoculated person is significantly less likely to contract the disease each time they are exposed to it. For this reason, having a large portion of the population vaccinated significantly slows...

    They are not "wrong". It is not unusual for different entities to share a proper noun. The term "America" is not somehow owned by the continental definition.
