Mike's Blog Round Up
January 18, 2014

Ah, the weekend…

Any thoughts on the Oscar nominations? Speaking of which, did you know there are conservatives who hate 12 Years a Slave because they just love Jesus so much? It's true!

Perrspectives: Obamacare has been profitably fantastic for the insurance industry so far.

P.M. Carpenter: David Brooks thinks talk of income inequality is Marxist class warfare.

The Impolitic: The market's invisible hand continues to screw the people of West Virginia.

PoliticusUSA: There's been a huge victory for voting rights in Pennsylvania.

The Moderate Voice: Obama's NSA reforms are half a loaf with little regard for ordinary citizens.

Round-up by Michael J.W. Stickings of The Reaction. (Twitter: @mjwstickings). I'll be here through the weekend.

Send requests and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
