Mike's Blog Round Up
March 23, 2016

So basically, The Real Loser Donald Trump, Republican super-extraordinaire, is an admitted would-be war criminal and human/civil rights abuser, while Teabagging Theocrat Ted Cruz, his only rival for the Republican nomination, is a police-state totalitarian. What they have proposed in response to yesterday's terror attacks in Brussels is exactly the opposite of what should be done and, in line with general Republican "thinking," is exactly what the terrorists want and why the U.S. has so much trouble winning the hearts and minds of those who would do such harm.

And again, this is the Republican Party of 2016: pro-bigotry, pro-torture, pro-surveillance, pro-endless war of the sort you can read about in George Orwell.

Bark Bark Woof Woof: Wingers enabling domestic terrorists.

Lawyers, Guns & Money: GOP candidates picking the usual crackpots.

Perrspectives: Close but no cigar for the U.S. and Cuba.

And further to my point above, "a significant number of Americans don't give a f*** if a dumb, oblivious, deranged a**hole is president." Good times.

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