The "elites" including, sadly, noted economist Dani Rodrik.
Elizabeth Heng is running for a California House seat. I don't know anything about her other than what's here, but the story she tells in the first minute of the attached video about her parents is breathtaking.
David French makes some important points. Here's just one:
To understand different outcomes of the white culture war, consider California and Texas. Both states are firmly majority-minority. Yet the leaders of both states are still disproportionately white and male; they’re just culturally very different kinds of white males. Conservative white Americans eagerly move to majority-minority Texas. Those same people would be far more reluctant to live in majority-minority California, because of its profoundly different treatment of religious freedoms, gun rights, and of course tax rates.
Interesting and an argument you're not likely to see in the major media: "The net impact of tariffs, while negative, might be swamped by the scope of the U.S. economy."
My experience with hospitals has been almost entirely as good as could possibly be hoped. But I believe the moment you can safely leave, you should. This piece reinforces my belief.
I'd say the most amazing thing about our current milieu--among, to be sure, many amazing things--is some members of the Left sacrificing the Left's most substantial achievement. The tremendous force of the civil rights movement, force that became overwhelming and in relatively short order dramatically changed this country, stemmed from a simple idea: it was wrong, unjust, even immoral to judge someone or hold someone responsible for things beyond that person's control. Hence, a person's skin color, ethnicity, sex, sexual preference, handicap by birth or accident, and age (after reaching adulthood) should play no role in how that person is treated.
But now we're told that a male, or a white, or--heaven forbid!--a while male can be assessed and judged just on those characteristics. It's astonishing. As Instapundit writes, "And yet they can't seem to help themselves."
I doubt any of my regular readers needs any correctives, but if you know someone who does, Thomas Sowell is an excellent place to start.
Another grand Liberal do-gooder policy--"Hailed as a cheap, clean-energy solution to urban gridlock"--encounters astonishingly fierce resistance. Where? Alabama? Salt Lake City? Appalachia?
No. The Westside of Los Angeles.
No surprise to those who know something of the history of "cost savings" from bigger government programs.
If your day is not going so well maybe take a moment and be thankful you're not trying to commute into New York City.
It's not who you probably think.
