EclectaBlog: Young voters have a message for the GOP and the “repeal Obamacare” crowd.

Calculated Risk: The percentage of American homeowners “underwater” has dropped by almost two-thirds over the past five years.

Mainly Macro: After comparing Trump and BREXIT voters, the U.S. should hope that to be forewarned is to be forearmed.

The Rude Pundit: Sorry, Republicans. You built Donald Trump, now you own him.

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"No one's ever asked to see my birth certificate." (Mitt Romney, August 2012)
