A funny thing happened on the way to the Blue Wave
The fantasy blue wave will crash lightly; the real Orange Crush will not.
UNDERSTANDING CALIFORNIA’S HOUSING AFFORDABILITY CRISIS
Politicians, bureaucrats, and vested interests have been lying about the issue for so long that Americans believe the lies. This means that solving the problem is nearly impossible. Making the problem even worse is the fact that once an urban growth (containment) policy is in place, the landowners become a vested interest who are not willing to allow housing to return to a free market situation. Who wants their land values to drop by 50% or 75% like they would in California or Oregon? No landowner!
The problem is simple, and the solution is simple, but because the lies have become canon, the problem is insoluble.
I expect that the way out is through the collapse: Detroit, Ho!!!

"Yes, Entitlements Are a Far Bigger Debt-Driver Than the Recent Tax Cuts Are"
Progressivism is dying; it will not remain in government, it will be exorcized there as well. It will be driven out because the pensions, entitlements, and other welfare programs will consume all available revenue leaving none for the progressive's pet projects. This will turn the progressives against the bureaucratic state and allow the reformation of government.
We are entering the American Renaissance a time when the progressive industrial socio-economic model will be exchanged for a new model. Within a decade or two, our world will change as much as the changes observed during the shift from the agricultural socio-economic model to the industrial socio-economic model.
Buckle up, the changes this time will come at a furious pace and will be quite disruptive. The benefits, however, will be enormous.
Demi Moore: 'Self-Destructive Path Very Quickly Brought Me to a Crisis Point'

Opinion | Geopolitics Trumps the Markets
Which means he is perennially easy on Democrats and progressives and hard on those like Trump who do not hew the line.
"The new era of geopolitics is unlikely to be an era of small government. The Trump administration is reversing some of the regulatory excesses of the Obama era, and the president’s judicial appointees are prepared to rein in the administrative state. But it’s in the realm of national security that Washington’s most formidable powers are found, and Mr. Trump appears determined to make liberal use of them. Whether he will wield them wisely is another question: The evidence to date is mixed.
President Trump cannot be blamed for the return of geopolitics. Russia, China, and Iran decided to challenge the American power on which the economic order depended, and Mr. Obama’s response to that challenge was, regrettably, insufficient."
Obama was an incompetent who left the world in tatters after receiving it in good shape. There is no place on the planet excepting perhaps Antartica which was not deeply damaged by Obama's regulatory excesses, incompetencies, and self-indulgent folly. He and Hillary worked as a team to lay the foundation for the destruction of North Africa, the Middle East, The Near East, place Eastern Europe in danger, and allow China and Russia to run amok. The damage does not end there. Europe could have used a steady hand in deciding how to handle its post-2008 economic problems, but Obama dithered, as he did with the problems which arose in Latin America and Africa.
Trump, on the other hand, has had a more profound and positive effect on foreign policy than any President since Reagan and Nixon.
The article is worth reading as are all of Mead's articles but one needs to temper what one reads with the understanding that Mead is a progressive who sees the world through the warped progressive lens.
