They are inconsistent with many things Liberals profess to want and believe. (So what else is new?)
Makes sense: you set a goal that can never, ever be reached and you can stay in business forever.
A piece that explains one major problem right now with the USPS.
Another very fine column from Selena Zito.
They are so disconnected from most places that it would astound them if they took the time to get on the road and ask them how they feel about the issues of the day. They don't want their police departments defunded. They want their bridges and roads fixed and their water to be clean. They don't want critical race theory jammed down their children's throats. They are horrified at how political the military has become and are worried about the long-lasting impact of the crisis at the border.
They are good neighbors. They love God and aren't ashamed to show it as much as they like pickles in their beer and ranch dressing on everything.
(Ranch dressing I knew about but I have to say the "pickles in their beer" is a new one for me.)
If you missed the "mega-viral" thread on what MAGA voters are thinking currently, and why--which I found quite persuasive--this piece will bring you up to speed.

"Three crises and a whole lot of bad policy decisions have driven hungry Cubans into the streets."

Opinion piece in the NY Times?! (Won't the Timesfolk from California claim this makes them feel "unsafe"?)
