Mike's Blog Round Up

So with all the problems in the world, from the situation in the Middle East to climate change to income inequality to racist police brutality to, well, you name it, the list is long… I guess the real lesson to be learned in 2014, the real problem, is not to wear a tan suit. Because that… why, that’s just plain inexcusable, especially if your name is Barack Obama and there's a disloyal opposition party that loathes you to its rotten core and won't give you even the slightest sliver of credit, or benefit of the doubt, even if, say, you'd single-handedly prevented the Holocaust.

And speaking of Obama, whose White House was on the defensive yesterday over that inartful "we don't have a strategy" remark, well, he actually does have a strategy to deal with ISIS and the crisis in Syria and Iraq, and it's rooted in his "minimalism," his cautious pragmatism, and that's exactly what's needed at this challenging time, tan suit or no.

Seeing the Forest: The necessary fight for unions.

Lance Mannion: The danger of right-wing Christians.

The Brad Blog: The hatred of an anti-gay family.

Gin and Tacos: The problem with hosting the Olympics.

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