Mike's Blog Round Up
May 19, 2015

Lawyers, Guns & Money: In the original French, “Desjarlais” translates as “abortion for mine, not thine.”

Mahablog: Republican voters are dying faster than conservatives can breed new ones.

Mainly Macro: Pretending the UK’s double-dip recession never happened, Niall Ferguson debuts a seventh killer app, historical revisionism.

Joe.My.God. Once again, the Notorious RBG warms the heart of marriage equality supporters and makes right-wing heads explode.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
“A decision purporting to redefine marriage flies in the face of the Constitution and is contrary to the natural created order. As people of faith we pledge obedience to our Creator when the State directly conflicts with higher law. We respectfully warn the Supreme Court not to cross this line.” (Signers of the Defend Marriage Pledge, May 2015)
