Mike's Blog Round Up

This WaPo headline yesterday just sort of summed it all up: "Donald Trump used money donated for charity to buy himself a Tim Tebow-signed football helmet." Splash on a few doses of fascism and egomaniacal bullying, and you've got the complete package.

Gin and Tacos: No peace of mind is the new normal.

The Mahablog: An assault weapons ban wouldn't help.

The Republic of T.: The GOP's Obamacare replacement is sickening.

Duck of Minerva: The true costs of Brexit have global impact.

And to commemorate yesterday’s 100th anniversary of the First World War's truly horrendous Battle of the Somme, here is a performance of "Agnus Dei" from Benjamin Britten's War Requiem. The lyrics are from "At a Calvary near the Ancre" by Wilfred Owen, one of that war's most brilliant, and tragic, poets.

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