Mike's Blog Round Up
June 9, 2017

Lance Mannion: Which came first: the beaver, the moose or climate change?

Eschaton: What can tourism businesses possibly do to attract American workers now that Congress has limited the number of seasonal H-2B visas?

Feministing: Why is the “tampon tax” still a thing in the U.S. and around the world?

Echidne of the Snakes: Which is it, Republicans? Are Democrats “not even people” or “enemies” threatening our country?

Speaking of which, your quote of the day:
"I do not believe that the president loves America. He doesn't love you. And he doesn't love me. He wasn't brought up the way you were brought up and I was brought up through love of this country. " (Rudy Giuliani, February 18, 2015.)
