The men who pave Michigan’s roads don’t like either choice in 2020 (Washington Examiner)

Just past 7:00 in the morning, a dozen or so men pull up onto the gravel shoulder along Business 196. They get out of their cars and trucks, slip on their reflective neon yellow vests, and hoist signs over their shoulders.

He’s a 65-year-old super right-wing conservative who has basically turned into a total asshole intent on ruining our relationship and our planet with his politics.

When I try to spend time with him without talking politics or discussing any current events, there’s still an underlying tension that makes it really uncomfortable.
