Mike's Blog Round Up
August 14, 2014

It's Thursday, people, we're almost there! We can DO THIS!

Alicublog presents, "The Return to Liberty Island!"

Zandar Versus the Stupid wants someone to explain, again, how Rand Paul is not a Tea Party Republican.

Messaging Matters reminds us of a time when government and capitalism were good partners.

Bonus Track: On Transmigration tells us of the rebirth of the Orpheum Theater in New Orleans following Katrina.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and sometimes at Liberaland. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).
