Bill, btw, we were high and dry during the recent disaster. We’re down in Alief on Brays Bayou, but the Corps of Engineers drainage project worked perfectly. The Bayou, feeder canals, and the retention lake project between Hwy 6 and Eldridge, Westpark Tollway and Westpark, worked perfectly. They all came up to street level and stopped there. Our storm drains kept taking in water throughout.

At any rate, how you “classify” these also depends on if you’re trying to look at them in terms of governance philosophy, or how they are interpreted in the US today.

Whats clear about the list to me that the “right wing” ideas that it contains are really only ideas held by the far-right-loony-fringe. Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell, nor Trump, are not talking about the forcible expulsion of any citizen based on race alone, or getting rid of the green card system.

HOWEVER, the LEFT WING ideas the list contains are, if not front and center in today’s Democrat party, certainly ideas embraced by “progressives”.

Long story short: If you had a stadium full with a random selection and equal numbers of Republicans and Democrat voters with a cheer meter in the center and read the list, there would be muted applause from the GOP on a few of those.

However, on more than a few, the Democrats would bring the house down. :-)
