When you need to hear reasonable voices

It’s a pleasure to listen to intelligent discussions between the left and the right. As more of a center-left leaner I turned to conservative opinion thought leaders in an effort to try and understand Trump and the GOP after the election. This podcast and the Bulwark have become my favorite way to stay informed (and revel in the absolute shredding of Trump). I’ve also learned a bit about conservatism and have new found hope in our common ground.

This liberal really likes this podcast. But watch the “ups” and “you knows.”

Under insured

Under insured means that you have insurance, but if you actually need to use it, then you have to pay a deductible so high that it completely changes your life. Sometimes you loose your home. Sometimes you can’t pay for your kids college. Sometimes you loose your car. You know UNDER insured.
