Mike's Blog Round Up
July 2, 2014

Well, America, I hope yesterday's loss by your USMNT to a better, more experienced Belgium team doesn't mean you'll stop paying attention to the World Cup, or to soccer generally. That's one feisty, determined team you have, and the future is bright. As for me, with England out, and Canada never in [sigh], I'm rooting for Germany and its impressively multicultural (and hugely talented) Mannschaft.

Human Voices: What it means to live in a free country.

Kiko’s House: The recall tsunami and GM's inbred culture.

Limbo: Trying to understand Tea Party thinking.

P.M. Carpenter: Obama's liberating declaration of war.

Perrspectives: Hobby Lobby and the religious freedom frauds.

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

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