How has nobody posted this yet? Did it fly under everyone else’s radar all day as well
I love reading the business press. It’s like when you favorite team is playing on the road and you have to step away from the TV for a minute. If you hear cheering, your team is doing poorly. If the crowd is quite or otherwise unhappy sounding, your team is doing well.
Jubilance in the business press tends to be misery for regular and/or marginalized people.
I do disagree with Kulwin’s take that liberals don’t understand nor care about the housing crisis. As usual it tends to be the case where progressive liberals have good policy ideas and centrists do not.
I was gonna make a joke about not posting video from my work, but this brings to light something that is rarely talked about
Rural America is way more hostile to anything liberal that people realize. I remember reading an article about Fetterman in the Spring and what jumped out at me is how casually instances of harassment toward Democrats living in Trump country were.
Like you put up the wrong yard sign and your neighbors start vandalizing your home, harassing you and making threats.
And the main takeaway is always "these people are angry, Dems forgot about them, they need to find a way to reach them"
Fox News and AM radio has done a number on these people. Create a ton of very angry very reactionary voters.
In Nevada I have seen it too. Some parts of the state you can't get people to volunteer. The threat of violence in these areas are real.
