Mike's Blog Round Up
July 29, 2015

Almost all of us came here from somewhere else, so today we look at immigration and immigrants. Which means we must sorta-kinda look into what The Donald is saying… *Tengrain ducks for cover*

Every Goddamn Day gets a voice mail from an angry reader.

Round-up by Tengrain who blogs at Mock, Paper, Scissors and at Liberaland. You can follow Tengrain on the electric Twitter machine, too. Send tips, requests, and suggestions to mbru@crooksandliars.com (with "For MBRU" in the subject line).

Can you help us out?
