Mike's Blog Round Up
March 3, 2015

Well, today's the day.

Fearmongering neo-colonialist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is addressing Congress. And how is it that he is doing so? Is it because a) Republicans have no shame and continually disrespect the institutions of American democracy; b) Republicans are traitorously seeking to undermine President Obama at every turn; c) Republicans love warmongering against Muslim countries – and warmongering generally; d) Republicans are content sending their loyalty, and control over American foreign policy, to a foreign country; e) Republicans stupidly think Netanyahu and his right-wing virulence is good for Israel; or f) all of the above?

Perrspectives: Why Bibi is trying to undermine American diplomacy.

Frankly Curious: Why it's best that King v. Burwell fail.

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