Last week, workers at a giant Amazon warehouse in Bessemer, Alabama, voted against forming a union by an overwhelming 71-29 margin. The lopsided outcome at the 6,000-employee warehouse dealt a crushing blow to labor organizers and their Democrat allies as both President Biden and Bernie Sanders openly supported the union effort.

I read a story the other day that addressed our ability to remain focused, or actually the lack thereof. It was a short article, probably for good reason, because it stated adults spend as much as 47 percent of their waking lives letting their minds wander.
