Mike's Blog Round Up
November 29, 2014

We Are Respectable Negroes: Apparently, some Star Wars fans suffer from fear of a black planet.

Hinterland Gazette: For at least two Cleveland policemen, “to serve and protect” has apparently been rendered quaint.

Blue Virginia: Apparently, the Koch Brothers’ accelerating war on the climate is hitting some speed bumps in the state.

Zandar vs. The Stupid: Expanded GOP control in the states means a new wave of draconian abortion restrictions.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“Half of all black children are aborted. Far more of the African-American community is being devastated by the policies of today than were being devastated by policies of slavery.” (Rep. Trent Franks, R-AZ, February 26, 2010)
