I’m moving back into my hurricane damaged winter residence this week. The house was stripped down to the studs and treated for black mold. New sheetrock, floors and ceilings were necessary. The final coat of paint and a new roof will be added this summer. Everything should be finished by late summer just in time for the hurricane season.

For most of the winter, we rented a place in Naples, Florida. With a population of almost 400,000, Naples may be the cleanest and safest city in the U.S. It may also be the fastest-growing city in America. My wife met a woman who just moved from California and was aghast at the school board in her former city allowing critical race and gender theory. A lot of people are moving to Florida because they can’t tolerate the liberal agenda in their state. When I read the Minneapolis paper every morning, I know how they feel. This trend is going to leave progressive states and cities much poorer as the big earners depart with their capital.

A few weeks ago, a company that developed wood products canceled plans for a factory in a depressed area in northern Minnesota that would have brought 400 jobs. The company quietly said we will go elsewhere after radical environmentalists showed up in opposition. When you hear of such folly, you know unquestionably that the liberal agenda is the blueprint for national ruin.
